It’s scary how many practitioners, especially when first qualified rely on pure optimism to get their businesses going. They start out feeling positive, set their intentions with the Universe, and wait for the magic to happen. And nothing! They're building their business on hope, and before long they’re floundering and not sure what to do next.
Whilst I believe in the Law of Attraction, you can’t just put positive vibes out to the world and sit back and wait for things to happen. You must demonstrate you’re serious about what you want with the action you take.
Optimism and positive thinking can create unrealistic expectations and if you rely on this alone, you'll be left feeling upset when things don’t go right. It won’t take much from you to change from being an optimist to a pessimist.
