8. Your circumstances reflect what you’ve been thinking about
Face this fact: Your beliefs brought you to where you are today, and your thinking from this point forward will take you to where you’ll be in the future.
In fact, your results in every area of your life reflect your deeply held thoughts about yourself. Consider your finances. What are your beliefs in this area? Are you constantly thinking about not having enough money? Dwell on that thought (a lack of funds) and you block the flow of money to you.
And then, there’s the matter of relationships. If you think that you don’t deserve much, you attract friends and partners into your life who won’t treat you very well. I’ll bet you know someone who always seems to go out with the “wrong” person. In fact, the last 29 people they’ve gone out with were wrong for them. Do you think this is a mere coincidence? Oh, no. There is a deeply held belief inside that individual that attracts these people into his or her life.
And whether we’re talking about finances, relationships or careers, the fact remains: If your thoughts don’t change, your results won’t change.
