We are where we are, because of our thoughts in the past. Thoughts become things. We consciously or subconsciously always think about something. The problem is that we usually think more about things we don't want, than about the things we want. It doesn't matter if we want or don't want something, we'll get what we mostly think about.
Try to observe your thoughts for a day or two. Do you mostly think about the things that you worry about, you don't want them to happen, you are afraid of, or do you mostly think about pleasant and wonderful things?
Your present situation is the result of your predominant state of mind in the past. And you are creating your future now. Your future will be like your predominant state of mind now.
The past is gone. You can't change it, but if you are dwelling on unhappy past now, you aren't feeling happy now, and you are creating unhappy future.
Because you're creating the future now, only the present is important. By having predominantly happy and positive state of mind now, you're creating your happy and positive future. It's called the Law of Attraction. You can attract whatever you want in your life: happiness, wealth, perfect health, love and wonderful relationships.
But you can also attract things and situations that you don't want. Actually we do it sub consciously all the time.
Because you are energy, you are like a magnet; everything is energy, you, your mind and your body. But you can control your body, and you can also control your mind.
Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy. If you don't control your mind and allow it to dwell on negative thoughts and feelings, it's your worst enemy, because it creates your unhappy future. If you control your mind, it's your best friend, because it becomes your best friend which will create your great future.
Of course lives of most of the people are a mixture of happiness and unhappiness because of their flickering states of mind. Now, because of knowing and understanding of the law of attraction you can start creating your happy future and be sure that you'll get what you want in life.
The Law of Attraction is a broad subject and there's no space in this short report to explain everything. Fortunately there is now more and more information available on the subject of attraction.
