Mum and I got home the other day and our little neighbour dashed up to chat to me. She’s such a cute kid and always has funny things to say.
That particular day I noticed that her toe was all smooshed.
“Khanyi” I exclaimed, “Whatever did you do to your toe?”
She shrugged and answered that she had fallen and hurt it. I told her that she should be more careful with her little toes in future – they were not big enough to mess with.
“But I’m always unlucky!” she sighed. “I am forever falling and hurting myself.”
Mum and I looked at each other.
“Noooo…. You can’t say things like that! You have to think of yourself as being a lucky girl. If you think about being unlucky then that just attracts bad luck. Tomorrow you are going to have a good luck day. No more bad luck!”
But she just shrugged and said… “I’ll try – but I’ll probably have another bad luck day.”
We went inside and I felt sad that she is so little and yet she already has such a negative attitude.
Dad is always telling us about the law of attraction. Our minds are the most powerful things that we have. If we decide that we are going to have a good day – then we probably will.
But you, yourself, really have to believe this one hundred percent.
You can’t think in wishy-washy terms. You have to tell yourself that you are going to have a good day. Then you have to envision having a good day. The power of thought!
Of course, in my case it’s pretty simple. I envision eating a nice cold ice-cream at school. Then I take some of my pocket money to school and buy one. It’s a simple as that. The ice-cream man is there, the weather is good for eating ice-cream and I don’t lose my money. Everything works.
Or I see my maths paper in my mind’s eye with a nice big A+ on it. Or course I know that I’d put in a lot of work beforehand and could reasonably expect an A+.
Nothing worth having ever comes free or easy. We probably would not appreciate it if it did.
And on the odd occasions when you do fail, you have to pick yourself up, dust yourself down and try again.
Hope you all have a simply fabulous day! (Go on – imagine yourself having a fabulous day.)
