Good Things Are Supposed to Happen to Me!

better-days-aheadI was watching a video of motivational speaker Les Brown and he instructed the audience to say “Good things are supposed to happen to me.” He recommended that the audience say this to themselves daily.  Brown then went on to say we tend to expect bad things to happen to us, so we need to affirm the positive.  Affirmations are designed to change our subconscious thoughts by constantly referring to them in our conscious minds.  Our subconscious impacts us in ways we are unaware of.  We tend to have thought patterns and experiences in our past which, if we are not aware, can undermine our conscious efforts to do better in the present.

So what happens when we start to internalize the message that “good things are supposed to happen to me?”  Does that mean everything we pursue will happen?  Of course not!  Does it mean that you won’t be disappointed?  Absolutely not!  This message is rooted in your faith in a higher power (God) and yourself.  People who believe good things will happen for them will start to become more perceptive of opportunities.  They will tend to attract those good people who genuinely can help them.

There is a flip side to this type of thinking.  If you truly believe good things are supposed to happen for you, then you will believe that if something doesn’t happen, it just wasn’t a good thing.  I’ll keep it real with you, sometimes this is a hard pill to swallow if you are in a desperate situation or have tried repeatedly at something.  It’s ok to feel disappointment, but we can’t let it keep us down.  In this day and age, we have many opportunities to overcome our circumstances and do well.  It can happen when we exude a faithful, positive mindset, with efforts to match.

  1. Thank you for this very “down to earth” article. I love how you clarify that this is not a guarantee that life will be all positive and that we still have to deal with undesirable experiences. It’s also a great reminder that if we don’t receive something we desire, not only wasn’t it good, but something much better than we wished for is on its way 🙂
