Wishes DO Come True!

Wishes DO Come True!
By Eva Gregory, CPCC

Imagine for a moment that you are Aladdin. You just found the magic lamp and rub it. The genie comes out and says:

“You have three wishes.”

What would you have wished for? Money? That promotion? A larger house? George Clooney or Catherine Zeta Jones? Would you be clever and wish for three more wishes?

Many people think they know what they want. They want wealth, or that home of their dreams. They want that big corner office. They want many different things. Many times it is material things that people say that they want.

Aladdin could have wished for one thing and the story would have been much shorter, but the ending would be the same. What is that one wish? Happiness!

So often we try to achieve happiness through money. I am not suggesting money is not part of the package of happiness, I am suggesting that money is not the whole package. There are plenty of people in large offices, making millions of dollars a year that are absolutely miserable. They have the big house, the expense account, and more expendable income than they know what to do with, but wake up every morning wondering how they can get through the day.

Suppose I grant you one wish right now. As you are reading this, I am waving a magic wand and I grant you absolute happiness. Tomorrow morning you wake up and your life is exactly the way that you want it. As you go through your day what will have changed? How will you know that this wish had been granted?

The Law of Attraction is like that lantern. You rub it and ask for what you want and “poof” it is granted. It is never a question of will you receive it, it is more of a question is it really what you wanted? In order to really get what you really want out of life, you have to decide what creates happiness in your life. Once you decide that, then miracles can happen. The Universe shifts in order to create that image of happiness that you have created in yourself. Opportunities will knock on your door and you will gain that happiness that you have sought. Sure, money can be a part of it, but wealth in ones life is much more than a dollar figure.

Before I became a life coach, Robin (my honey) and I had our own software company. Things got very scary as the money flow began to dry up. We were laying off employees and our creditors were nipping on our heels. We believed if we just had more money it would fix everything.

It was not until I discovered the principals of the Law of Attraction that things began to improve. The first thing that I did was to introduce a company-wide game with a huge spreadsheet called our Prosperity Account. We started out on Day 1 by depositing $10,000 in this imaginary account and every day folks in the company would post on the spreadsheet what they would spend that $10,000 for that day. Then every day, we would increase the deposit into the account by another $1,000 and we would all post what we would spend that amount on that day. The result was that folks were beginning to act as if this was really happening and they were beginning to be really generous with each other. The point of the game was to get our focus on something that felt better than where it had been for a long time and it literally shifted the energy - the emotional charge - we had all been carrying around.
The Prosperity Account also showed us that no matter what we did today, there was always more in the account the next day than there was the day before. Within nine months of beginning this process, someone we had never heard of approached us about buying the company, lock, stock, and barrel and we literally went from living paycheck to paycheck - when we even GOT a paycheck - to successfully selling the business for a hefty amount of money!
It was just a shift of priorities and a hard look at what we really wanted to bring into our life. We focused on happiness and that is what the Universe provided us. When I began helping others learn and utilize the Law of Attraction in their life, the transition was much easier because I knew what made me happy and now, every morning I look forward to what the day has to offer me because I am happy and know that I will continue to attract that happiness and prosperity to my life.

I will do what I promised you earlier in this article - I am granting your wish for happiness- now go out and begin to attract it into your life.
