The Law of Attraction `As Soon As Possible’! It is, of course, always active, however is it positively enriching your life, or reflecting disappointment and despair back to you in triplicate? Immense difference, and that brings us to my version of the popular ASAP acronym:
Always Speak A Positive!
Consider once when Mother Theresa was asked to participate in an Anti-War march. She answered, `No, thank you. However, if you ever decide to hold a Pro-Peace march, I will be there.’. Can you clearly decipher the extraordinary difference? It isn’t enough to just avoid the negative, either, there must be a conscience move towards the positive in your thoughts, your emotions, and your attitudes.
Look with me at a passage from the book of James in the Bible on profiting even in times of trials:
`My friends, count it all joy when you come into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have it’s perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from God; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.’
Please notice, no one is asking you to be a fool and be happy about the tough things this world can cause us to experience. The wise instruction here is to be joyous through the trail, not about it. Be strong in your faithful belief that good is soon to follow. Allow no doubt to enter your mind or heart, for uncertainty is a tip toe towards compromise, which will soon give a full foothold to negativity.
Ask your circle of friends and family to hold you accountable for your speech patterns, since out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Let them know you are really devoting yourself to dwelling on that which is from above, the beneficial, the praiseworthy, the righteous, the marvelous, the admirable, the magnificent, and the spectacular things that are in your life, and especially those things that will be in your life. Begin today to be affirmative and appreciative for that which was, which is, and that which is to come.
Even Frank Sinatra, that great proponent of `Doing it My Way’, crooned about the importance of accentuating the positive in this terrific old song:
`You’ve gotta accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative,
Latch on to the affirmative, don’t mess with Mister In-between.
You gotta spread joy up to the maximum, bring gloom down to the minimum. Have faith or pandemonium’s liable to walk upon the scene…’
