The Law of Attraction – How Do We Get What We Focus on

by subconscious mind 101
The Law of Attraction states that whatever you focus on you attract into your life. So just as you may not like your job, you may not like your current relationship, and so on, so too may not like another person who is angry and has the "I hate you" expression. In essence, the Law of Attraction is impartial, meaning it works equally well against whomever you desire to have a bad experience from. The problem is that these negative expressions of anger and desire for misery are quite common, at least in Western culture.

A friend of mine who is ethnically Chinese came to the United States in her early twenties. Like most immigrants she came with a desire to improve her life in every way, including her financial. Like many immigrants, she made many mistakes on her first steps into this country. One of these mistakes was making an unrealistically low wage for the kinds of jobs she held.
Despite the fact that I know she made these mistakes, I convinced myself that she must be earning such a low wage because she was from a country where the average wage for blue collar jobs is very low. In addition, it was the late 90s when she came to the United States, so it must have been common knowledge that people from countries like China were making low wages for the kinds of jobs she held. Since I was already in a relationship, I decided I wouldn't mind having the occasional Asian customer and maybe having one or two orders of Chinese food every week.
I acted as if I didn't care how she was making money. Despite the fact that I really did care, I convinced myself I was doing fine and that I would always be able to pay her bills. Despite the fact that I had no idea how she was going to make her money, I took her optimism and faith into consideration. Despite the fact that I was very nave in regards to money and financial matters, I was very trusting of her ability to handle it.

Eventually I made the acquaintance of her boss, who took me aside one day and told me in no uncertain terms that her pay was not in the food she was preparing, and he was going to have her terminated if she didn't change her ways. To make a long story short, I had a parting conversation with her boss and told her she had two choices, she could accept my dismissal, or she could quit. She chose to quit. Despite the fact that she had just found out that I was her boss, I took her departure in stride, and despite the fact that I would have liked to continue working with her. I did not want to have anything to do with the food industry, and I made that clear to her when we spoke.
But, my beliefs regarding the workings of the human mind and the subconscious mind have much more to do with my lack of understanding than my faith in her abilities. I believe you are what you eat. I believe that we are what we think.
