I was watching the documentary/movie thing, "The Secret," thinking...what a load, and then I started to realized that it is actually something that I have been doing all of my life.
The easiest way for me to explain the idea would be to give an example, so here it is:
Let's say that I want to have a $300,000 house at some point in the future, so I get the thought in my head that I will have it, and overtime circumstances prevent themselves which allow me to reach my goal, and I eventually get the house.
There are two ways to look at this:
1. the stars align and everything turns out dandy
2. thinking this way causes you to subconciously make changes in your life that allow you to reach your goal
It sounds like a load of crap when you just say it bluntly, but in reality, I think we all do it to some extent. Ever since I have been little, I knew I was going to be rich, and when I say that I will have a lamborghini, I could just as soon be saying that the sky is blue. It feels like a fact, and I honestly have no doubts about it. Whether because of this or not, things have been working out in my favor for reaching these goals recently.
Concerning similar things, I have some friends who are complete naturals with girls and they always say something to the extent of, "I pretty much have no doubt that I can get that girl," and then they go do it.
I'm curious what all of your thoughts are on this...
