A magical maxim is WYTUG. You can remember WYTUG because it sounds like “Why tug?” So many of us are tugging at our life, trying to pull it along as if it was an obstinate, stubborn, headstrong mule. Why do that? Your life can be like old children’s song:
“Row, row, row your boat Gently down stream Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Life is but a dream.”
Read on to make your life a merry one full of all that you have dreamed.
Known For Centuries
WYTUG is an acronym for What You Think Upon Grows. That what you think upon or focus upon increases is not a newly discovered fact; many have known it since at least as early as writing of Bible (Phillippians 4:8).
Many more since then have written about this simple and yet profound principle -- Norman Vincent Peale, Napoleon Hill, Agnes Sanford, Dale Carnegie, Joel Goldsmith, to name just a few.
Our thoughts are very powerful; they are our mental magic wands. What we dwell upon becomes our reality. This simple fact is what makes our thoughts so powerful. If you cast your attention upon poverty, you will attract poverty into your life. If you think about illness, you will get sick.
No matter what situation — health, wealth, peace, happiness — thinking about negative side will get you more of negative; concentrating on positive will get you more of positive.
Too simple, you say? It may be simple but it is not easy. Watch your thoughts for a half day. How often do you think of good and positive, and how often of that which you fear or do not want? Many of us think much more about bad things in life and imagine these fears coming to pass.
Not a good move! Fearing a thing invites it to become manifest in your life. Think miracles instead. Wonderful, enchanting, golden miracles.
Fear, Fear Everywhere
Why do many of us find our thoughts drawn not to wondrous, marvelous, triumphant, but to pessimistic, fatalistic, creepy?
Perhaps it is because we are told so often what to fear — diseases, interest rates, crime, foods, chemicals, addictions, politicians, violence, road rage (and all other rages du jour). One potential fear after another.
