In the last several days I have come across two separate sources that discussed the affirmation, “Things are always working out for me.” As a result, I decided to utilize it in my daily thoughts, and have found it very empowering.
At first glance, one could say that this expression cannot possibly always make things work out for us. However, regularly thinking this way helps us to feel good on a more consistent basis which is ultimately what most of us are looking for, and this type of thinking makes that possible.
Usually, we wait to feel good until our goals are achieved and we get the job, house, car or relationship that we desire. We spend our time engaging in certain activities, buying particular products or hanging around certain people with the desire to feel better.
Ironically, if we feel good ahead of our reaching our goals, we are more likely to attract those good experiences, and not have to struggle so much in their attainment. The right people, books or circumstances are more likely to be attracted to us when our energy is positive.
Conversely, if we are upset and complaining all the time, than that has a definite energy attached to it as well, and may detour the needed assistance we long for.
When we make feeling good a priority, our life changes, so we need to take how we feel seriously; without waiting for external situations to arrive or thinking unhelpful thoughts.
We do have control over the thoughts we choose to think, and can find a way to look at just about everything in a way that feels better.
For example, in my own life, we recently sold our house for a greater goal, and the initial discomfort and sadness led to some unhelpful thoughts such as:
“I wish we hadn’t sold our house,” or “We made a mistake.”
Those have since been replaced with more uplifting thoughts such as:
“How courageous we are to have sold our home in the interest of pursuing our long range goals,” and “We make great decisions.”
It is easy to forget that the more we focus on doubts or what is not working, and talk about it all the time, the worse we feel, and the more we may prevent things working out.
So, begin to think, and feel that things are always working out for you.
