We would never start out for a long drive without gas in the car or leave our pets without food while we are gone for several days. And yet I find many people who forget to eat or take food with them if they are going to be gone for several hours. Both our cars and our pets need nutrition and fuel everyday. So do our bodies.
Many cars require premium gas. It is easy to forget, but your body also works better on premium fuel. By premium fuel I simply mean whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean meats. The energy and vibration of your body will rise considerably by feeding it well.
Two other essential factors about the basics of human self-care are
exercise and rest. Just being reasonably active by moving your body
with walking, gardening or playing will increase your current
health and add to your longevity. Working out at the gym or
playing a sport is even better, if not overdone. Any movement
counts and adds to your health. Current studies show that even ten
minutes of walking is beneficial.
Rest and sleep are the third leg of the stool of balancing your
basic health. In this fast-paced society it is easy to keep going
by drinking caffeine when twenty minutes of rest is what your body
When you are stressed or going through change you will fare far
better if you return to the basics of self care; good food,
adequate exercise, deep sleep and daily rest.
"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward."
- Spanish proverb

“What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients: Choose a career you love, give it the best there is in you, seize your opportunities, and be a member of the team.” Benjamin Fairless
Do you enjoy your job? Do you enjoy all your tasks, or do some tasks get you down? For example, some people love paperwork, but others hate it with a passion. As most jobs require a degree of paperwork, there is not a lot you can do about it. However, if most of your job is taken up by paperwork and you hate it, or another task that you hate, there are certain things you could do about it:
You can ask to be re-assigned to a different department which does not require you to do the task that you hate, or where there is much less of that task involved.
You can ask for someone who loves the job you hate to be your partner. This way, you are working on your strengths, and your partner is too. So if you hate cold calling, for example, partner with someone who excels at that, while you go out and make the sales, and share the commission.
Create a system or use a tool. It has been proven that systems work. Tools you could use could be a tape recorder, or a camera.
You can ask for ways to do your task differently such as submitting pictures or a video instead of writing about it.
You can minimise the amount of work by making a template that you just fill in the blanks. Find out from your boss whether it would be okay to hand in something that is adequate as opposed to perfect. If it is not your strength, you can argue that your time is best spent in the areas that you are strong.
You can do a psychometric test which you can take to your boss to show which areas motivate you and which jobs don’t suit your talents and abilities. Then employ the strategies above to negotiate terms of your employment that is more in line with your natural talents and gifts.
Most people find some tasks in their job de-motivating. There is no-one who is great at every area in their job. We all have areas in our jobs which we don’t enjoy. People who are the most successful in their job employ the strategies above to make their job more enjoyable and to work to their strengths.

“Don’t try to bend the spoon. That is impossible. In stead, try to realise the truth … there is no spoon.” (The Matrix)
The Law of Attraction simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about. Your thoughts are your subjective reality. Your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. In subjective reality, you are consciousness itself, the container in which the simulation of reality is run. So in subjective reality, everything is indeed real. You’re real. I’m real. The physical universe is real. Everything you experience is a manifestation of thought. “Your mind makes it real.” (Morpheus – The Matrix)
Attracting abundance is knowledge. As any other skill people have, like driving a car, learning a new language … manifesting is no different. How good you are at it, depends on how much you practice it.
Grasping a better understanding of how the "law of attraction" works is the first step in bringing abundance into your life: There is only one subjective reality, and it’s yours. It’s important to correctly define the you in subjective reality. You are not your physical body. No-one else has a subjective reality because they are all in your subjective reality. You can therefore not have a conflicting reality with someone else, as that someone is only part of your reality. Everything around you is manifested by you; your house, your car, even your body and your health. Nothing has any power in your reality except thought itself.
So, if thought created your reality at the moment, thought can change it. Have you ever thought about what you don’t want just to see it happen to you? Have you ever worried about something and saw what you worried about happen?
So how do you change your reality? How do you create thoughts that will manifest? Basically, just wanting something isn't going to bring that to us when we continue to obsess on the not having of that something. All we will experience is "not having" and will be ultimately blocking our true desires. You have to focus on what you want and not on what you don’t want, and you need to experience it in your imagination as being real and not just a fantasy. The more energy and certainty you put into a thought, the more dominant it becomes. You might find that you have conflicting thoughts. If that happens, you have to change your beliefs in that area. As soon as a thought corresponds to a belief you hold, that thought will manifest effortlessly. So how do you change a belief? Imagination comes in handy again. You imagine the opposite of the belief that you hold as real, and you imagine the belief you hold as no longer real. You do this for 21 days and your mind will accept it as truth.
If you don’t believe your thoughts can change your reality, then they won’t. If you don’t know what you believe, then you manifest uncertainty. Your reality will appear uncertain and confusing.
Those people who are efficient in attracting have trained their minds to focus on their desires. They have learned it so well that they often don't even realize how they do it. Abundance comes to them naturally.
To change your reality, assume responsibility for the reality you have created. Then begin creating the reality you truly want by thinking consciously about what you want (and feel good about it) and stop thinking about what you don’t want. You will know you are doing it right by your feelings. If you feel bad, you are thinking about something you don’t want. You then just need to stop thinking about what you don’t want, and start thinking about what you do want, changing your feelings, and your thoughts will manifest.
