This got me thinking about how I approach life and I want to share that with you in the form of the following text from Dr. DeFoore's Goodfinding Newsletter:
You're a lot more in charge than you know! Here are the three steps we all use, either consciously or subconsciously, to literally create our own world:
1. We all have a theory. Hang out with anyone long enough, and they'll tell you their theory about life, people, etc., whether they realize it or not.
2. We all like to be right! It's part of human nature. So, guess what...
3. We look for evidence to support our theory. There it is...that's the part where we create our worlds.
So, here's how it works: 1) You think lots of good things are going to happen. 2) You really want to be right about that! 3) You use that magnificent brain of yours to find evidence to support your theory, and presto! Good things happen! It's that "looking for evidence" part that is so powerful. What's your theory? What do you think about your health, aging, life, other people and the planet? Whatever it is, make it good, because you'll probably find evidence to show that you're right!
By the way, one of the best tricks of the optimism and Goodfinding trade is setting your sites high--like the star of this video.
