“You are meant to succeed, and failure should feel bad to you. Life is supposed to go well for you—and when it does not— there is something wrong. But what is wrong is not something that is outside of you over which you have no control. What is wrong is within you, and you do have control. And taking control is not difficult to do once you understand the basis of who-you-are and the basics of the Law of Attraction and the value of your personal Emotional Guidance System.” — Abraham [Excerpted from the book “Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth & Happiness”]
Unless we (eventually) understand this piece to the puzzle there is always the opportunity to just assume that life is a gigantic crap shoot and that the dice often come up with disappointment and failure, and this just isn’t so. What is “so”? As the quote states, we are created to succeed and the happy and successful goals toward which we move are ours to choose and become the “will” of God for that moment. Actually the unhappy and unsuccessful goals are also ours to choose and both of them happen in the same way. With understanding comes peace and power. The quote talks about something being “wrong,” and this sharing would change that word because of the meaning that most give to it. Let’s say it in this way, what is correctable is within us, and we do have control. Nothing is wrong per se, just choices made that didn’t have the vibrational equivalent of success in happy ways. We can have successes in unhappy ways for we always succeed in the process of having what we hold in focus to find replication then as person, place, condition or thing in our lives. What do we do? Understand the power that is within us to be conscious of where we place the power of thought. Then, monitor the emotional feedback that all choices have and if something doesn’t feel good, catch it early. If a focus on external happenings doesn’t elicit good feelings as they are observed, listen to your gut, for any focus held for any length of time becomes a request for more. You are meant to succeed…what is correctable (failures) should feel bad and there is something we can do about it as we are in charge of what becomes our focus and then what becomes our life.
