Life is But a Mirror – We Attract What We Reflect in Our Lives

The circumstances of your life are a mirror of your habits, beliefs, emotions and your thinking.  change courage city work life motivation happy positive

You see this mirror effect at work in your life all the time.

You see it whenever someone walks into your office, place of business, a train, bus, a waiting room, a meeting room or any room smiling, happy and upbeat.

Their presence fills the room or place, elevating everyone’s attitude.

Conversely, you see it when another person enters a room or place with a scowl on their face, negativity dripping off them like sweat.

Their presence also fills the room or place, dragging everyone down along with them into negativity.

What’s behind all this? Mirror neurons.

Mirror neurons are brain cells that cause us to unconsciously mimic the actions, emotions, habits and thinking of those around us.

Researcher Paul Marsden, University of Sussex summarized his research on the effects of mirror neurons, stating that not only yawns and smiles were contagious, but so too were emotions, optimism, pessimism, stress, happiness, unhappiness, habits, behaviors and many other things.

Be careful who you associate with.

Your subconscious mind, through this network of brain cells called mirror neurons, seeks to mirror the habits, behaviors, thinking and emotions of those you associate with on a regular basis.

If you associate with negative people, you will become a mirror, reflecting back their negativity to those around you.

If you want to succeed in life, you must avoid associating with negative people, who will infect you with their negativity, making you repulsive to other success-minded people.

Be a mirror of positivity by associating with other upbeat, optimistic people.

This is the real Law of Attraction at work.
