Power of Positive Thinking

Recently, my life has been all over the place. I have been hit quite hard with a lot of issues to deal with all at once and have gotten quite emotional at times over it all. Despite the trials I have been facing, I have tried to stay positive that things will work out. I try to live by the mantra that everything happens for a reason and I try to look for something positive in even the darkest of situations, although I don't always manage to do it quickly. Eventually I do find positives in horrid situations, but sometimes it takes time.

Lately I have struggled a little financially. I don't have as much in savings as I usually do and I have had more expenses than I used to with my income decreasing a little, money became a bit tight. I held on and knew that things would turn around and set a goal in my mind of how much I want to make this financial year and just how I would achieve that. So far, it seems to be working.

Instead of focusing on my lack of, I focused on how I could make more money and imagined my life filled with abundance. It seemed when I focused on my lack, I had less. My income streams would stagnate and things became harder.

Whereas, when I focused on how much potential my future has, what I want my future to look like and how I will make more money, the money seemed to flow.

This week my house got put on the market. I would have been happy for it to just sell, I barely cared what it sold for and when I realised this, I knew I had to focus instead on what I wanted it to sell for. And guess what? It has sold for more than I expected and my expectations were already a little on the high side.

I want to move back to Canberra, but it is slightly more expensive to live compared to where I am now. Just yesterday I was wondering how it would be possible. Now my house will be sold, I will be able to move and now I have increased my income again, it will be affordable plus I will have savings to help me should I need it.

By focusing on my goals, desires and trying to be positive everything seems to fall into place. I know it is not just a matter of positive thinking, but it sure helps.
