Turning things around….Backwards!

As a child I was always warned of all the things that could go wrong. "Wear clean underwear in case you have to go to the hospital.... Don't do this, don't do that. Be careful. Be sure to do it right - you do not want to make a mistake.." You know the drill. And so I grew up afraid of my own shadow - afraid that if I took a risk - I might fail. I never learned until later in life to EXPECT Success. But I have learned to turn my thinking around. In fact I turned it all BACKWARDS.

As soon as I have a negative thought about something I immediately begin to think - what if I thought it out backwards? And what happens when we turn our thoughts around AND apply the law of attraction? Think for a minute....

I heard a funny song last week that perfectly describes the possibilities of positive thinking - thinking of possibilities and expecting good things to happen. It is called "Backwards" and is sung by Rascal Flatts. Imagine if we began to think positive instead of negative. And as the singer sings - "what do you get when you sing a country song backwards?" Here is the answer..

"Ya get your house back - ya get your dog back

Ya get your best friend Jack back

Ya get your truck back - ya get your hair back

Ya get your first and second wives back

Your front porch swing, your pretty little thing

Your bling, bling, bling and a diamond ring

You get your farm and the barn

And the boat and the Harley

First night in jail with Charlie

It sounds a little crazy, a little scattered and absurd

But that's what you get when you play a country song backwards"

Just imagine what might happen if you turned your negative thinking backwards? What would you get back that you have lost? (lyrics according to Mandie)

Ya get your hope back - ya get your life back

Ya turn your red in your business books to black

Ya get your joy back - ya get your time back

Ya get your first and second mortgages back

You rest on your front porch swing, you pretty little thing

You get more bling, bling, bling and a diamond ring

You get your farm and the barn

And the boat and the Harley

Success is not that far off - see -

It sounds a little crazy, a little scattered and absurd

But that's what you get when you turn your negative thoughts backwards

So what have you got to lose? Nothing! In fact just think what you will get back when you turn your thinking backwards from negative to positive.

In fact that door you've been holding closed with all the "oh no what could happen" thinking - is about to burst open with all the wonderful things waiting for you as soon as you turn that thinking around!

Abundance is your natural state. The Universe awaits to give you exactly what you ask for! Open that door!
