You get what you get whether by default or by design through your thoughts, words and actions.
That’s how the Law of Attractions works. This isn’t something new it’s been around since the beginning of time. There are many ways this has been expressed through different cultures and religions but it all means the same thing.
You reap what you sow
What comes around goes around
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you
These are just a few. The message is the same.
Your thoughts set the tone for what you’ll experience.
Let’s keep it simple. If you expect to have a difficult altercation with someone, without even being consciously aware of it, your tone of voice, mannerisms and thought patterns are getting ready for it. Your body may even get tense just thinking about it. When you do have this encounter it does become difficult because through your voice, language and body language the other person reacts negatively to you. You got what you expected.
Conversely, if you were to set the tone of a successful encounter in which there was mutual respect and understanding before hand, the likelihood of a successful encounter would greatly improve. Your voice, language and generally the way you come across would reflect your positive outlook.
Thought comes first. Your belief that it will work out successfully is paramount. If you don’t believe it will, it will show up in your words and actions whether you intend for them or not. This is why you get what you get whether by default or design. It’s better to consciously set your intentions, believe in them, and finally carry them out then to go with the flow, take your chances and maybe get lucky.
