Sometimes, I Wonder Why

Sometimes, I wonder why.  No that would be a lie, I wonder why, all the time.  I wonder why about a lot of things.  Today I am wondering why about Think Positive 30.

 

Why am I doing this?

That is a very good question.  I started out doing this for me, and for a dear, wonderful friend.  You can read the story in the about section, but the abridged version is we were whiny.  Our blogs were filled with negative crap, and she decided to post one positive thing a day.  Why?  Because all that negativity was bringing us down.

I made a blog specifically for that, and Think Positive 30 was born.  From the blog (not this one) it morphed into a website thinkpositive30.com, and a mailing list.  I loved the mailing list.  But my web host kept flagging me for spam, even though people had to sign up for the email list.  I loved the email list beyond belief. It was a lot of work, but I loved it. But the flagging made me look for a different way to do it.

I found the list I’m using now, Mail Chimp.  It’s an amazing list, but it’s not free.  To send the Daily Positive Thought out to my subscribers on a daily basis was going to cost money.  Lots of money. To send out the Daily Positive Thought it was going to cost me $15.00 a month.  I can’t swing that so I decided to send out one email a week with 7 positive thoughts.  One for each day.  It’s not perfect, but it works.

Why Am I telling you this?

Not to ask for money.  Just a little back story into my Why question for the day.  This morning I saw a post on Facebook and someone was saying they sent a hoodie from their store to a YouTuber who has over a million subscribers.  The YouTuber emailed back and said they were going to wear the hoodie on their show and give a shout out to the person on Facebook and his shop.  I think that’s great, and it leads into my why for this morning.  It’s a two fold why I think.

Why are some people more successful than others?

How does it happen? What do they do more successfully than other people do?  Why are they able to find their niche and help it explode into a way to make money?  Is it because they don’t feel like they have any other options, or is it because they think they have every option in the world?  I’m beginning to think it’s the second thing.  If you’re doing something out of a sense of desperation, you may be successful, but I think your fears and desperation will get in your way and you won’t be as successful as you think

If you approach something with the mindset that you have a thousand different options open to you, you’ll be more successful.  When you act like you have all these options available to you, all these options become available to you. Which brings me to my next why.

Why can’t I make this happen?

I’m a huge fan of the Law of Attraction.  I don’t think that’s a secret.  Simply put it states Ask (put it out to the universe), Believe (believe you’re going ask believe receiveto get it) and Receive (wait for it to come.)  There is a missing step, you can’t just sit there and do nothing. If you want something, you have to work for it.  Effort is required on your part.  You shouldn’t try and control everything, but you do have to put in effort.  I’m okay with that part.  I struggle with the Believe portion.

How do you believe you have a million dollars in the bank when you’re struggling to pay the bills?  How do you believe you’re driving the car of your dreams when your car is in the shop?  That how is my why.  I know these people who are super successful have always believed that they will be.  This all comes back to my little baby of a website ThinkPositive30.com.  Sometimes I wonder why I am doing it, and sometimes I wonder why people care.

Well the answer to the second question is, I don’t know if people care.  I don’t get a lot of feedback here comment wise.  I also have a facebook group, facebook page, and an instagram page.  None of them have a lot of interaction with people, a little, but not a lot.  Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing wrong that I don’t have a lot of feedback and then I realized something.  If I touch one person, help one person think in a more positive manner, it’s a win.  As to the why I am doing it, that’s easy.  I do it for me. To help me be a more positive person.

So I’m going to continue.  I’ll continue with the website and the facebook and instagram.  I’ll keep the mailing list going.  And more importantly I’m going to work on my believing in the believe portion  of Ask Believe Receive.  If I can believe in God (and I do) I can certainly believe that good things are coming to me and that I can and do make a difference with ThinkPositive30.com  And if I can do it, so can you!
