You might be.
Or you might be pushing away the very people you hope to attract.
It’s all very well setting an intention about what or who we want—and we do need to do that—but we also need to shed those pieces of ourselves that aren’t consistent with that. Those incongruent parts of us will gum up the works, for sure.
Joe Vitale called this the Missing Secret… Yes, we attract more of what we are, and unless we stop repelling the aspects we’re not so comfortable with, not much will happen. So we might need to change who we are a bit.
For example, if you want to be influential and begin to succeed in that, don’t be surprised when people regard you with a little more than usual respect and set you apart slightly. That might take a little getting used to and be a bit of a lonely place. Don’t push them away in the meantime.
You need to be open to the whole package, not just part of it.
It all comes down to our choices really.
What are you consistently choosing?
