It’s no secret that our thoughts become our reality. And, it’s no secret that our thoughts precede our feelings. So, what we focus on – what we think about and how we think about those things drive what we feel inside and what we manifest in life around us.
We’ve all experienced this. You think about someone at the exact time they call you. You think about buying something and all of a sudden you start seeing that something everywhere and then wanting it even more. Or, you think about what a shitty day you’re having, you start to feel shitty, and somehow the day seems to get even shittier.
It works exactly the same way when it comes to realizing your dreams, achieving your goals, and becoming your best self! Call it the power of intention, the law of attraction, dream visualization, brain hacking, psychology of emotions, or anything else you want. The fact remains that this universal truth has been around forever and is here to stay because it is a principle of the universe, of people, and of modern neuroscience. Plain and simple. You attract what you focus on, whether positive or negative.
But, have you ever thought about this? Just as our internal thoughts and focus help create our external world, so too does our external world help create our inner one! It’s a two-way street. Let me explain.
I was watching this video the other day by Jason Silva (who, by the way, is a totally unique, deep-thinking, and pretty trippy media artist, speaker, TV personality, and existential philosopher) and it inspired me to really start thinking about this in a way I hadn’t before.
This two-way street is the reason why we feel relaxed and peaceful and our mind seems to quiet down when we are in a relaxing environment – whether it’s an exotic location, a spa, nature, or your bath tub. It’s the reason why people feel totally pumped up, mentally focused, and inspired when they go to a motivational seminar or conference. It’s the reason why most people are more productive in an office setting. It’s the reason why the music, lighting, and the people around you at the gym somehow seem to affect the quality of your workout. It’s the reason why you will start to become an asshole if you’re in a stressful environment around a bunch of other assholes all day, but you will start to become more focused, positive, playful, soulful, joyful, successful – and any other “ful” you want – when you surround yourself and feed your mind with those attributes in the people and things and spaces around you. It’s all part of the same universal law.
See, our environment, our surroundings, the physical spaces we occupy, and the people we surround ourselves with, all influence our internal world just as much as our internal world influences our external one!
Think about this two-way street and leverage it to make positive changes in your environment, your surroundings, and your life in order to realize your dreams, achieve your goals, do more of what you love, and be more of who you love!
