He was a grumpy man and it was recorded that after finding something on the project was wired wrong, he cursed the man responsible and said, “If there is any way to do it wrong, this man will find it!” Ouch.
The contractor’s project manager kept a list of “laws” and added this one, which he called Murphy’s Law. Perhaps you’ve heard of it! The law that states, “Everything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
What a negative belief system to live by! Since what we believe and focus on tends to come our way the person living by that law will have a very frustrating existence missing out on the great things all around him or her because they will be too busy looking out for what is going to go wrong.
I did used to live that way and it really was a miserable existence, I thought I was merely being realistic. I actually was being realistic in that I was creating a self fulfilling prophecy in my life of negativity. I’m so grateful that I learned about changing the way that I think so that I can focus on the positive, expect it and enjoy it when I find it – because I will find it since I am looking for it. That’s the kind of self fulfilling prophecy that I like!
I heard a story of how he died, I’m not sure if it’s true. Late one evening Mr. Murphy’s car ran out of gas. He hitchhiked to a gas station facing traffic and wearing white when he was struck from behind by a tourist who was driving on the wrong side of the road.
If that is true then goes to show well the law of attraction works…
When we are dealing with the law of attraction, we can’t forget about Newton and his famous law: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The opposite reaction that we rarely hear about in the law of attraction is that of resistance. While we are attempting to bring positive things into our lives will will also be faced with resistance.
There are many laws of nature at work in the world. The better that we understand the laws the more likely we are of making them work for us instead of against us.
What laws do you live by? What laws would be named after you? How would you change if you knew that a law would be named after you? I would love to hear your thoughts, please share in the comments! If you enjoyed this post please share, tweet, vote, etc! Thank you!
