Dealing with loneliness: As a man thinks, so is he. Ever wonder why certain people get the polite, respectful, “Good Morning, Sir”, and others get the, “Hey Bud” or “Hey, Mac” kind of treatment? Think for a moment, now. What is the difference between Jeff Bezos and a beggar besides a few billion dollars and a couple of skyscrapers? The answer: The mushy inside your head. You see, the way people react to you is due to the way you think about yourself.
Why do you think people judge a book by its cover or a bad kid by the clothes he wears? I know it is unfair, but the way a person thinks in his heart, he will appear or even live out what he is thinking! The Law of Attraction is not something new; it is the way things are. It is evident in Murphy’s Law - the things we most don’t want to happen to us, that is what usually happens to us. A more simplistic way to look at it is why a dropped buttered toast always land on the wrong side! We focus and put our energy on the things we do not wish to happen whereas it should be the other way round. Put your energy and focus on the things you desire.
Even as a child in school, we always hoped that when we were sitting in class, and didn’t know how to answer a question the teacher asked, we always whispered in our heart, “Don’t pick me… PLEASE, don’t pick me” and the teacher always did. It didn’t matter where we were sitting, the teacher had this mind reading ability that knew we didn’t know the answer or wasn’t paying attention. How does this apply to overcoming loneliness? If you ‘project’ an aura of unwantedness, you will feel unwanted and your friends will reject you unconsciously.
Stop acting like a wet, unwanted puppy who just escaped from the pound. Say to yourself, “You find me attractive, lovable and good company.” It is true we can’t always convince ourselves that we are lovable, attractive and people love being around us. But since we can’t control what others think, this form of affirmation actually fools our mind into thinking WE ARE lovable and attractive. Try it and see!
