The Positive Power (eyes on the prize)

Some call it the Law of Attraction.  It has gone by the name The Secret.  It is also known as the Power of Positive Thinking.  Most religions incorporate this principle into their teachings and it is a basis for the widest range of philosophies.  Motivational speakers would go out of business were it not for this principle, which is basically all they are talking about.  Any successful person, no matter their field of success, uses this principle either consciously or sub consciously.  There is no scientific basis for the Law of Attraction, but I am here to tell you that it's a proven truth, and has worked wonders in my life.

Wikipedia defines the Law of Attraction as "the belief that like attracts like and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results".  There are doubters, no doubt, to the power of positive thinking.  As they sit in the dim glow of their negativity, they search for answers as to why things don't work out.  Surely it could not be, the inner circle or their doubt.

In the darkest moments, it can be a struggle to keep one's mind focused on a positive outcome.  Even to an avid believer in the Positive Power, there are whispers of negative thought always waiting to be heard, there beyond the silence.  Where your heart lies, your mind will follow.  Often difficult to control, the way to obtain your goal, is to look deep within your soul, and keep your eyes on the prize.
Victory, with razor like focus, must fill the mind.  What is victory?  What are your goals, what do you want from life, what do you want your life to look like, what do you want to be, where do you want go?  What are your goals?  Victory is not letting the dark cloud of doubt creep in.  Victory is doing what it takes to stay focused, to stay positive.  Keeping your eyes on the prize.
