The question that comes up now is, how does this all work?
I could just tell you that your beliefs create your reality and that would be true.
That doesn't tell you a whole lot, does it?
You want to know a little bit more than that.
I am going to give you a little bit of theory and then let YOU prove it to be true.
Just bear with me for a little bit and then you can find out for yourself if it is true or not.
It has been pretty well documented that everything is energy.
Energy can be anything from air to water to steel plates.
It is all the same energy.
It has just formed into different densities.
Now, your question is, what does that have to do with us?
Well, we are also energy.
Our thoughts are energy.
And when it comes to energy, like attracts like.
Just like I said before, we DO attract what we think about.
Whatever we focus on we WILL draw into our lives.
You have already proven that to be true.
Each of us CAN have whatever we want in life.
In fact, it is already there waiting for us in energy form.
Does that mean that all we need to do is think about it and it will just show up for us?
Most of the time, there is some assembly required.
What that means is that the MEANS to get whatever we want will show up for us.
If I want a loaf of bread, it is not going to appear in a puff of smoke for me.
What might show up for me might be some flour, yeast, salt and all of the rest of the ingredients that I need.
It will be up to me to put those all together and bake them for a while before I actually have that loaf of bread.
Does that mean that we can have the means to get whatever we want just by focusing on it?
Yes. But that is just the first step that opens the door to whatever we want.
When we focus on what we want, we start drawing it towards us.
Remember, like attracts like.
What I want might not show up, but the means to get it WILL show up.
The opportunity to have whatever I want will be there.
If I want a car, and I focus on having a car and I am open to having a car and I believe that I can have a car, I can not expect a car to just show up for me.
I might get offered a side job where I can make enough money to buy that car.
Or, the car might come from a job that supplies a company car.
All I need to do is be real open to the means of getting that car.
And the means WILL show up.
I WILL have the opportunity to have a car.
I focus on the car and KNOW that the means to get it will show up in one form or another.
The first step is to focus on what I want.
That opens the door for what I want to come to me.
The next step is to be open to whatever means or opportunity show up.
The means might not look like what I expect it to look like.
So I need to be open to the opportunities when they show up no matter what form they may take.
The next step is to take advantage of the opportunity when it shows up.
That means that I need to be willing to act on the opportunities when they appear for me.
I must be willing to do whatever it takes to make use of the opportunities.
If I do all of these things, what I want WILL come into my life.
Here is something that we do need to look at and understand.
Everything that you are looking at here is about you.
The goals that you are going to reach are about you.
The changes that you are looking to have happen are about you.
They are NOT about anyone else.
When you set a goal, you are trying to make a change or draw something into your life.
You CAN change whatever you want in your life if you put enough effort into it.
And, you can have fun doing it.
No problem there.
The confusion usually comes when we want to draw other things into our lives.
If I want a particular type of car and I see someone with that particular type of car, I will not be able to draw THAT particular car to me.
I can not take that car from someone else unless that want to give it up.
This is NOT about taking something from someone else.
I WILL be able to draw that TYPE of car to me.
I CAN manifest the means to have that particular type of car.
If I want to get into a good relationship, I can not just pick a person and manifest a relationship with THAT person.
This is not about controlling someone else.
I CAN draw a person with those same qualities into my life.
Remember that when we want to draw something into our lives, we are dealing with essence and not form.
What that means is that when I know the essence of what I want, the form will follow.
If I want a good relationship, I will list the qualities that I am looking for and be open to whatever form that may take.
I will become the person that can draw a person with those qualities into my life.
The form will follow.
If I want $5,000.00, I will be open to whatever source may show up.
I may be offered a side job that will generate that money.
I may win a contest with a $5,000.00 prize.
I may create a product and sell it for that much.
There is abundance in the world.
The essence of whatever I really want WILL show up for me in one form or another.
The means to get whatever I want WILL show up for me.
There is no need to try and take something away from someone else.
There is enough in the world for everyone to have what they want.
The other part of this is that the changes are about YOU.
Do not expect someone else to change just because you are changing.
You can quit smoking it you want to.
You can not make someone else quit smoking.
You can loose weight if you want to.
You can not make someone else loose weight.
You can HELP someone else do something but you can't really MAKE them do something.
We each have our own free will to do what we choose to do.
The only person whose life that you have control over is YOU.
The only person whose thoughts that you have control over is YOU.
Throughout this book, we have been looking at making changes in YOU.
Not anyone else.
And as you change, the world around you will seem to change.
In fact, it will change.
