There are a lot of books and articles lately about the laws of attraction and secrets that basically say that if you think positively then you will cosmically attract good things.
The messages tend to have a sort of new-age element about some mysterious spirit power doing this for you if you are going along with the program.
But the truth is there is no need for an unsubstantiated spirit to be in control of this phenomenon. What there is need of is to recognize a simple truth. That you get what you give.
You may say that sounds pretty ‘American’ since someone off in the slums of Rio or Mumbai can be very positive and still live in a desperately poor slum. And that is true. BUT, wherever you live, you live with yourself and you influence those around you for better or worse.
Cussing out the world is a forgivable rant sometimes, it’s hard to live a whole life without having ever done that. But what is your general attitude towards the world is the question? Is it to blame, or are you? Better yet, ask this question. Even if the world (read government, family, parents, biology, circumstance, etc) IS to blame, who is going to fix it for you?
