Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.” -Gandhi
A few months before election day I told my husband that Trump was probably going to win. Every time I turned on the television, the news was reporting another episode of Trump sticking his foot in his mouth and gnawing on it for the umpteenth time.
I have been a “Law of Attraction” life coach for over 15 years and it has been proven time and time again that what my clients focus on grows bigger. When my clients worry about not having enough money, not enough money keeps showing up in their lives. When my clients worry about being alone for the rest of their lives, they are still alone, unless they change their thoughts and, of course, their actions around the issue.
So when I saw my friends and colleagues afraid Donald Trump may become the president of the United States, I knew the power of thoughts. What we fear and feed, magnifies!
When I turned on the news I rarely heard about Hillary. It seemed Trump was getting all the press and attention.
This can be compared to the fight with cancer or the fight with drugs. These issues get tons of attention in the press and news, but they have gotten worse over the decades, not better.
Keep focusing on what you don’t want and what you don’t want keeps getting louder and louder and louder. Remember, whatever we resist persists.
Commit to focusing on what you are FOR, rather than what you are against. Vote FOR your own well being and empower yourself by staying informed. Take 100% responsibility for your own feelings without blaming candidates for your potentially derailed emotions.
Know that what you push against pushes back even stronger. America experienced that in this election. The push was infused with fear rather than faith. Our election was riddled with anxiety about these two nominees and our country has been, off the charts, divisive. It is probably leftover residue from the memories of the Bush administration and the economic crisis that Obama dug us out of.
From now on, I vote FOR faith that there is something higher at work. I choose to magnify the wellbeing of our future elections with positive thoughts and beliefs. Next time the squeaky wheel will not get the grease, because I will just turn off the television.
