You have the ability to direct your own thoughts; you have the option of observing things as they are,
or of imagining them as you want them to be—and whichever option you choose,
whether you are imagining or observing, is equally powerful.
You have the option of remembering something as it actually occurred
or imagining it as you would prefer. You have the option of remembering something that pleased
you or remembering something that did not please you.
You have the option of anticipating something you want or anticipating something you do not want.
In every case, your thoughts produce a vibration within you that
equals your point of attraction, and then circumstances and events line up to match
the vibrations that you have offered.
You have the ability to place your attention wherever you decide,
so it is possible to distract yourself from something unwanted and put your
attention upon something wanted. But when a vibration within
you is one you have practiced a great deal, the tendency is to continue to
offer the vibration in the way you have been practicing it—no matter how much
you wish it to be different.
It is not a difficult thing to change the pattern of your vibration,
especially when you understand that you can do it a little bit at a time.
Once you have an understanding of how vibrations work,
how they affect your experience, and, most important,
what your emotions are telling you about your vibrations, now you can make steady,
fast progress toward the achievement of anything that you desire.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.~ Norman Vincent Peale
