The Drama Addiction

Whatever you focus on grows. It’s a law of nature, like aerodynamics, like buoyancy, like gravity. Your belief in it has not one thing to do with it. You don’t have to believe in gravity to fall on your face. You don’t have to believe in attraction, you’re still creating with every thought you think.
The issue is not attraction; that happens regardless of what you do. The issue is what you focus on – or whether you are focusing at all. People that are successful at this game called life, happy people; successful people have one thing in common: they know what they want and they go for it. They have a clear vision for themselves and they take action that is in line with that vision. Attraction then brings them the necessary people, places and circumstances to propel them ever forward.
People that are unhappy with their lives usually know exactly what they DON’T want. They can enumerate every single thing that is bugging them. But they can’t really tell you concretely what it is they do want, except maybe a million dollars. Even if they got that they wouldn’t know what to do with it. Stories abound of people whose lives were ruined when they suddenly won a million dollars. As a business and life coach, my first question to potential new clients is whether they know what their heart’s desire is. Many are unable to answer. They have no clue and never took the time to figure it out. Others know what they want. They answer right away. But when I ask what action they are taking towards that goal, I get a blank look. Chances are they are not doing or getting what they want out of life. Their focus is diffuse and that causes boredom. Michael Beckwith calls boredom ‘the effort it takes to suppress your own creativity’.
The human mind is a powerful computer that doesn’t do well when it is unoccupied. Patience is one of the hardest things to learn for humans because our minds like to have something to do. When the mind gets bored, it yearns to become focused on something. It looks for entertainment and nothing entertains better than drama. The increasing numbers Payscale Business Major Salary of news shows on television are built on this very premise bombarding you with one drama after another, skillfully presented in titillating fashion: Entertainment in the guise of information. The law of attraction is not suspended for the evening news. What you focus on still grows. You are affected by what you take in. Drama becomes your focus.
Let’s do an experiment: Be conscious of the conversations you have with others over the next week. Even if you start out talking about something else, how often do you end up at the latest news drama: the rains, the flooding, the economy, or jobless statistics? Drama becomes an addiction, just like a drug. You want more and more and you take it where you find it. Pretty soon you’re involved in the drama in your friends’ lives or perhaps you wrap yourself Learning Finance For Beginners in the latest cause c?�l?�bre – the environment, breast cancer or saving the whale. Check carefully, are you into it because you truly care about it or is it something to keep you busy? May it just be the drama you love? The law of attraction never sleeps. If drama is your focus, drama you get. The evening news becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Did you lose your job? Is your marriage a mess? One thing’s for sure, you’re not bored anymore!
Stop! You deserve a break today, but please don’t go to MacDonald’s – take the reigns of your life! You have a say in your future! Start creating the life you want, the life you were meant to live. Break the shackles. Turn off the news. Take pen in hand and focus on yourself. Write down your wildest dreams about your life. What was it that you always wanted to do? Let your imagination have free reign. Drama can’t compete when excitement about your own life takes over. Then take action. Create a vision board that helps you keep your dreams front and center. Hand it where you can see it when you wake up in the morning. Mediate daily to find out your next indicated step, and then take that step. Stop living everyone else’s life. Begin living YOUR life now.
