That book was so powerful for me then, but it was only something that I would know intellectually for a lot of years and then I finally learned to adopt it in my life. There was help along the way and more recently it was The Secret. Though The Secret was focused on the Law of Attraction, it was much the same thing as Dyer’s Pulling Your Own Strings in that we have so much more control of our lives and how we feel than we choose to use even when we know the concept. In fact, there was a lot of backlash from some serious resistors about the whole idea of the Law of Attraction being a bunch of hooey, indicating that they seemed to accept the idea of the Law of Distraction instead. Even when we know that we have the power of choice no matter the circumstance when it comes to our own thoughts inside, much of the time we may fail to allow ourselves to use it or choose to ignore it for a time. Drama has its benefits, or at least we’ve learned that it is not only accepted, but often encouraged. Again, we have and always will have control in our own mind. It is never what happens to us, but what we think about what happens to us. It is never what others think of us but what we think of us. I love how Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad, Poor Dad fame says it: “It’s not what you say out of your moth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power!” Somehow we think that this knowledge of this power we have to assimilate itself fully and completely immediately, but the reality if often that we need to remember that if we don’t practice it, how could we ever get very good at it. I’m practicing every day now and it IS getting better! I’ll be a super star in no time at all. We Have The Power. No One Got Left Out. Let’s Use it! Spread Some Joy Today–Teach by your own example.
