My negativity story You could call me a typical skeptic when it came to manifesting. The idea that I could “wish” my way to what I wanted in life seemed too easy and I was no naive gal (or so I thought!). The law of attraction wasn’t something I had read too much on and because of my ignorance, I simply did not understand it. But once I became aware of this, I started seeing it everywhere, almost the same as when you are interested in a car and you start noticing it everywhere you go. At first, I just ignored it, being the stubborn individual I am, labelling it as coincidence. But as time went on, it was becoming alarmingly more than coincidence and I forced myself into looking into it. So I did… It all started about a month ago, where I was constantly thinking how nice it would be to reach a goal for my blog. To be more personal and specific with you, it was how many people visited my blog daily. I used to come close every so often, so I knew it was attainable, but I had no idea it could be long term. Well, one day, I reached the goal! Then came the second and then the third. Next thing I realize it’s been three weeks and I am surpassing my numbers almost every single day! If you are a fellow blogger, then you can share in my complete shock and excitement! The funny thing is, when I was doing well, my thoughts continued to be positive effortlessly! I had the confidence that I could reach my goals and I did. There was nothing that could get in between my goals and my blog.
Little did I know, it was my mindset that would put a halt on my achievements! Almost a month into what seemed like blissful tenacity, where everything just seemed to click and my numbers were proving that, something changed. My blog that I had worked so hard for was finally just making sense.Then, my wonderful husband and I had gotten into a fight. Nothing major, nothing important at all, and it was over within a couple hours. To be honest, I don’t even remember what is was about. But, as we worked quietly together without even uttering a single word, I do what most women do. We start overthinking! This had started me on a path or more like a downward spiral that deflected any achievements I was reaching. My pointless and completely irrelevant negative thinking created a monster of doubt, that whispered evil reminders that I was never good enough to write. I was completely undeserving of the numbers I was attaining, and that all of it was unsustainable. Guess what happened. You probably already know! My numbers started dropping, which of course only cemented the doubts. If before I couldn’t believe what I was reaching, well of course that was just a stroke of luck. It was a terrible domino effect. The poorer my numbers, the more I thought I wasn’t good enough, which also seemed to keep bringing down the numbers. My certainty of being a writer was being questioned and I had even considered stopping this blog.
Negative thoughts will beat you up and spit you out
This might sound innocent enough. Yes, I had a bad couple weeks. There is no denying it! But to give up on something that I am truly passionate about? It’s ludicrous. But that is the power of negative thinking. It can take something you are deeply in love with and persuade you that you aren’t good enough. The doubts and apprehension it creates can stop you in your tracks and make you rethink everything you thought you knew. This is where the idea of manifesting and how your thoughts and beliefs can alter your future came more and more clear.
