I’ve been learning more and more how true it is what they say: we attract our circumstances to us.
It’s a truth that I used to resist. I think most of us do.
How am I to blame, after all, when the tailgater behind my car rear-ends me, when that cashier was rude to me, or when my boyfriend tries to tell me how to raise my son?
Simple. I’m not to blame. This isn’t about blame. There’s a big difference between attracting circumstances to yourself and holding yourself at fault. Most of us attract these circumstances unconsciously. In fact, it can be a huge challenge to even recognize how we’re doing this, let alone learn how control it.
Okay, fine, semantics. So how did I attract the circumstance of being rear-ended by the tailgater, or having the cashier be rude to me, or having the boyfriend tell me how to raise my son?
I’ll tell you in my next blog post. Here’s a hint, one I learned from iPEC, my coach training school: There are no problems, only opportunities.
