There’s something about the transition of each season that evokes excitement.
It’s carried along with the crisp autumn breeze that brushes against your cheeks. Change rustles with the leaves as they begin to reveal their glorious crimson color.
Everything seems to fall into place as you walk down the sidewalk with a pumpkin spice latte in hand and the sounds of autumn crunching beneath your heels.
Urbanites retire their shorts and sun-kissed skin, embracing fall and all its grandeur. Wardrobes are updated with boots, cable knit sweaters and beanie caps. Hues of chocolate, charcoal and hunter green replace the pastel and neon color palettes in boutique windows.
Most of us are attracted to this magnificent season as it provides us with an enticing sense of reinvention and new beginnings.
Variations in routine are always exhilarating. Fresh surroundings create new possibilities, rejuvenation and adventure.
The sense of hopeful anticipation started for many of us way back when at the start of a school year with new friends, clothes, teachers and routines.
The first step to a fresh start is positive thinking combined with the law of attraction, a concept quite similar to karma.
Dwelling on the past or stressing over things you cannot change attracts negative energy and is a complete waste of time.
Be proactive; redirect your efforts toward things you can change and take the positive steps you need to get there.
According to Business Insider, the law of attraction can certainly transform your life for the better if you play your cards right.
Here are some of their suggestions on how to play:
We attract the energy that motivates our thoughts, whether positive or negative.
For example, if you're constantly saying (or thinking) “I’m going to be late,” you sure as hell are going to be late.
Nip it in the bud, get there and learn for the next time that you have to leave earlier.
To induce change, we must envision things as we want them to be, rather than negatively focusing on how they are now.
Seek a job that you absolutely love rather than complaining about one you hate.
Life is way too short to wake up every morning dreading to go to work.
The more you dwell on something, the faster and more likely it is to happen (good or bad).
If you’re unhappy with your shape, do something about it.
Hit up the gym or sign up for yoga classes after work.
Avoid those tempting red velvet cupcakes at the bakery next to your apartment and incorporate healthy snacks into your diet.
You've got this!
Making these critiques in your daily routine will lead to a healthier, happier you.
Dealing effectively with life’s unplanned roadblocks can result in a positive outcome.
Don’t mentally drain yourself by focusing on a bad situation. Redirect your thoughts as to how you can improve it.
Assess your goals and dreams… and run toward them.
If you are in an unhappy or unsatisfying relationship, make it right.
If you can’t get things back to where they once were, move on. It will be so much better for both of you long-term.
It’s not your imagination; science actually backs the law of attraction.
Studies reveal the brain adapts to the law of attraction.
Researchers have uncovered "mirror neurons" in both humans and monkeys. Our mirror neurons actually emulate the actions of someone we are observing.
Simply put, if you are watching someone cry, the same brain pattern letting him or her perform that action is reflected in your own brain…just as if you were performing the same action.
Whenever we do something, what we do will create the same action in someone’s brain who may be watching.
The law of attraction is a powerful tool we can use to our advantage…or disadvantage.
Ernest Holmes once said:
Believe as though you are, and you will be.
If you want to succeed at something, channel your energy towards it.
Any great trip in life calls for dreaming, planning and much hard work.
Negativity is a party pooper, so don’t invite her in.
When you spend time complaining about how hard it will be to reach a goal, you will get nowhere fast.
You create the person you want to be, the image you want to portray to peers and the people who you surround yourself with. If you are not happy with that picture, redraw it.
As Jewel Diamond Taylor said,
Your thoughts, words and deeds are painting the world around you.
It’s been said many times before: the mind is a terrible thing to waste. Fill it with positive thoughts; don’t clutter valuable storage space with unnecessary gibberish.
If you think positively, you are likely to attract positive people, good things and experiences.
Similarly, if you focus your time and energy on the catty bitches of the world, you will attract the drama that comes along with it.
Attracting drama is not worth your time or energy, having a spectacular outlook towards your overall plan is.
The law of attraction is real, and you should be mindful of it on a daily basis.
Be a positive person and you will attract a positive life. It is good for the mind, body and soul.
