What You Think About, You Bring About – So Focus On What You Want

If you’re a believer in the Law Of Attraction, then this article on what you think about, you bring about, will be of interest to you. If you’re not a believer in the Law Of Attraction, or are not familiar with it, then maybe this article will get you thinking. It is written by Michael Michalko, author of Creative Thinkering, Thinkertoys, Cracking Creativity and ThinkPak. In summary, if we intend to do something, we visualize it, and by various forces of nature, start noticing the substance of, or the result of our intention, everywhere.  We start noticing only things that our brain deems important having set our intention.

Your Thoughts are Tiny Spins

Thoughts like Tiny Spins

We have all played with magnets when we were children. A magnetized object consists of a multitude of tiny little elements called “spins” (see the illustration). Each spin has a particular orientation corresponding to the direction of its magnetic field. In general, these spins will point in different directions, so that their magnetic fields cancel each other out (disordered spins are illustrated on the left). Spins pointing in opposite directions repel each other, like the north poles of two magnets that are brought together.

However, when the temperature decreases, the spins spontaneously align themselves, so that they all point in the same direction. Instead of cancelling each other, the different magnetic fields now support each other, producing a strong overall pattern. Spins pointing in the same direction attract each other, like the north pole of one magnet attracts attracting the south pole of another magnet. Magnetization is a good example of how forces aligned in the same direction attract and reinforce each other to create a dynamic, natural pattern. In the image on the left, the pattern is inconsistent and incoherent, while in the image on the right the pattern is straight, coherent, and dynamic.

Think of your thoughts as tiny spins in your brain. If you have no intention to be or to do something, your thoughts are disordered, with no direction, much like the tiny spins on the left. When you have a real intention to be or to do something, your thoughts now have purpose and automatically align with each other to form a dynamic mental state of awareness aimed in the direction of the intention.

Whilst the Law Of Attraction has not made an appearance here, it’s clear that there is congruence between the Law Of Attraction, and with Michael Michalko’s suggestion that what you think about, you bring about. I thought I’d make an addition to the original title with the words ‘so focus on what you want’ as ultimately, that’s the reason why I excerpted it. It forms one of the main points of The Law Of Attraction; if you focus on what you want, rather than on what you don’t have, or don’t want, then you’ll achieve what you want.  If you focus on what you don’t have, then that is what you’ll get. This is why goal setting is so important, as by setting yourself goals, you’re making an intention which – maybe unwittingly – creates a road map. Without goals in place, there is no destination in place, so how on earth do you get there? This is also in tune with Tony Robbins’ advice to shift their focus;
