Many years ago I read a book or listened to the tape of a book called "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. It is a book written in the 1930’s. I discovered the book and Hill listening to tapes by Anthony Robbins where he interviewed authors of his favourite books. So, although Napoleon Hill was dead, he had recorded many interview so Robbins took clips from these interviews and fabricated an interview. It was fabulous and so I got the book tape and listen to it in my car as during my commute. Hill was talking about the Law of Attraction in his own way. One of the things he emphasized in his own quaint accent was "Definiteness of Purpose".
The message was the things we give our attention, energy and focus are the things we attract to our life. I recall at the time there was a lot of upheaval in my life and I have some concerns about my long term prospects. I realized that my income was completely determined by my time and I needed to change that. I therefore created a definite purpose without really knowing how I would get from there from where I was currently.
Well, circumstances changed dramatically for me and I was able to accomplish my goal over the next fifteen years. Looking back I realize that was a real turning point. As time went on I was able to attract more opportunity to accomplish my purpose.
So recommend that we all have a definite purpose in our life, write it down and allow it to happen. As things happen to align with your purpose, celebrate them and continue on the journey. If doubts creep in, remember "lots can happen" and celebrate how the journey has gone so far.
The book or tape of "Think and Grow Rich" is really unusual but contains some good lessons for life. I was certainly ready at the time and the teacher came.
