I hear all the time that we need to ONLY focus on the POSITIVE to get the life that we want. This is one of the biggest lies I think I have ever been told. Don't get me wrong, focusing on the positive is great, but many would tell you to IGNORE the NEGATIVE entirely.
There is some truth to "like attracts like" however, I have found that this principle rarely applies to the PHYSICS or ENERGETICS of things.
Objects can be positively charged, negatively charged or neutral (no charge). A substance that gains electrons becomes negatively charged, while a substance that loses electrons becomes positively charged. Atoms or molecules that become charged (positively or negatively) are ions. If one is charged and the other is not - they attract.
So... the negative charge in me, attracts the positive charge in you, and vise versa. And in a system, like an atom or a human body, there are negatively and positively charged objects attracting and working together to make what we call a physical...
The movie Inception is one of my favorites. I don't usually buy DVDs, but for this movie, I bought the special edition BluRay.
If you have never seen it... check it out. They play with the concept of a "dream within a dream... within a dream." Or as I put it, "a story within a story, within a story." A high level idea for sure, but very applicable in the "real world."
You may hear a lot of "gurus" out there talk about sharing "Your Story" to your prospects and clients. They teach how to do it effectively, how to engage audiences, and how to sell using your story. And from what I can see, what is being taught is accurate, however it is also INCOMPLETE.
When we focus only on our story, the relationships we build become lopsided. This is true in business, relationships, and life in general. Your story is only one third of the formula to craft the PERFECT STORY for your business, relationships and life.
There are actually THREE...
We are not thought leaders... we are thought PROVOKERS.
