I happened to read a couple pages of “The Power” by Rhonda Byrne and was instantly drawn the ideology of it. Each of us individually have the power over ourselves, including how we react to things and what we attract. We give off energies and vibes off into the universe that may attract negative or positive things. I found the law of attraction very interesting because it really enforces the idea that what we give off into the universe, the universe gives back to us. Although some may not agree that everything happens by our personal attitude or happiness, it was a great perspective. Look at it this way: being positive and happy will help better fuel you better to your goals without the obstacles of frustration getting in your way. Your attitude probably has affected something good in your life once or twice, but the only person who holds the power to change that is you. While being in college things in our lives become very overwhelming, and sometimes reacting negatively becomes a habit. And then disappointment becomes too often of an emotion because you thought you could have done better. How often do you sit down and realize your accomplishments and congratulate yourself? And realize your worth and importance to yourself and others? From personal experience acknowledging my progress and reacting to it positively has only rewarded me with a better outcome.
