"You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you mind find, you get what you need."
There is a lot of truth and depth to these lyrics.
By wanting something you are acting as if you don't have it so the universe will continue to give you more "wanting" as opposed to the actual thing you want.
You need to act as if you already have it.
I know... It's confusing...
Let's put it this way... You get what you think about most. The issue is that most of us think we need something else as opposed to appreciating what we already have.
Does that mean we should not have high aspirations? Absolutely not! That's one of the things that keeps me going. The key is to not be set on how you're going to get there or when it's going to happen.
The universe works faster than we think if we allow it to. Let go of the control, put the intention out there and let the energy flow.
If you are always thinking about the negative things that "could" happen, then you will get more negative things because that is where your energy is going.
If you spend most of your time thinking about the great things that "will" happen, great things will happen because that is now the energy you are putting out there.
To some extent this is training the mind to always look on the bright side. I know it's cheesy and may seem like BS but how has the alternative been working for you?
I would much rather surround myself with positive people and positive thoughts.
But don't be fooled... Positivity does not mean naive.
