The Law of Attraction – The Power of Positive Thinking
The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy.
One example used by a proponent of the law of attraction is that if a person opened an envelope expecting to see a bill, then the law of attraction would “confirm” those thoughts and contain a bill when opened. A person who decided to instead expect a check might, under the same law, find a check instead of a bill.
I was looking for a set of inspiring quotes to change my windows theme on my pc at work. I am willing to pay for a great set and I love the quality. You have a great variety and more themes than I ever expected, however I was disappointed that your quotes and pictures on leadership and entrepreneurship were all male. I am a community leader, entrepreneur and most importantly a mother and example/mentor to my daughters. (I appreciate your 2nd wave feminist theme slides, however people that download a specific set slides like that are already socialized and/or have the belief women are as capable as men) Please consider inspiring those who may download the male dominated slides and consider using your creativity inclusive of, and in concert with, more diversity. I’m not just referring to females, but also to diversity in race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, etc.
In addition, I also saw your comment “The rule of thumb is be confident about yourself, but never be overconfident.”
Please read up on the origins of the “rule of thumb,” I think you will be quite surprised. Please consider changing the phrase, there are so many many other choices just as effective. Thank you for giving the public the ability to comment, it is one the best ways to educate people on their unconscious bias’ and I look forward to purchasing a set of slides at some point.
