Years ago I read a book by Wayne Dyer called “You’ll See It When You Believe It”.
This fascinated me because it was totally opposite to what most people say and that is “I’ll believe it when I see it”.
Dyer was talking about our beliefs and how they colour what we look for. They are the lens through which we see the world.
Over the past few weeks so many of my clients have shown up with stories that demonstrate this concept.
David Bayer explains our brains are a goal achieving machine. If you ask your brain something, it simply must find you an answer.
Indeed, one of my very great mentors Lou Heckler taught me this concept many years ago – “Your brain must answer any question you ask it”.
These days, if I have a dilemma I need to ponder, I often hand it over to the “Committee of Sleep” and let them deal with it overnight. They then give me the answer the following morning.
The reason we’re talking about this is because the majority of us look for the negative and ask crappy questions.
For example, “Why does this <insert negative thing> always happen to me?” “How come there are no decent men or women out there?”
Your brain must find you an answer.
You find what you look for.
Let’s use this information to create good things. Let’s expect the best and get it.
Let’s ask better questions or “Afformations” as Noah St John calls them.
“How come I’m so wealthy?” “How come I have such great relationships?” “Why do I love my work so much?”
You find what you look for, or rather your brain does, so look for the good things you want.
