What is Coincidence?
Nothing really happens “by chance.” We actually CREATE what we call “coincidence.”
When does coincidence happen in our lives? Stop and think about it. When you are focused on something and it has a priority in your life, little coincidences just seem to occur. This is often said to be the Law of Attraction in action.
This works no matter what you’re focused on. If you’re focused on worry and fear, or anger and frustration — you will see *coincidence events* reflecting what you are worried about. Worry is actually negative goal setting.
The classic example is someone who is looking for success, but just can’t achieve their goals. They might be focused on their goal, and that seems like a good thing. But their unconscious mind might be filled to overflowing with negative thoughts and beliefs.
So what happens? They create negative *coincidence events* that sabotage their efforts. Self-defeating situations are inevitable when your mind is focused focus on fear, worry, or the concept of being somehow limited.
Negative outcomes don’t just happen in our lives. They occur when we refuse to pay attention to warning signs of a probable negative outcome. The same is true for the Law of Attraction.
Let’s run a little test of how you got to where you are today because of coincidences that occurred in your life.
Start with one aspect of your life. This could be love or romance, your career or business, financial success –- anything that has truly special significance to you.
You know where you are today in that area, but let’s step back say three years. What was the situation then? Take a few introspective minutes to recall the major decisions you made in that area of your life as you think forward to today.
Here’s where you’ll begin see how one decision led to another. Pick one major decision. If you had made a different choice, how would things be different today?
So why do you think you made that decision? You were focused on something positive or negative, that focus created your response to an opportunity or challenge — and here you are today as a result of that past focus and action.
If you choose NOT to direct your subconscious mind to create the life you want, everything will remain as it is today — or will go downhill because of building anger and frustration.

Creating Positive Life Outcomes
Here’s how to instead choose to get positive results in your life:
–Begin by deciding what it is that you really want — make it a positive outcome, and not fear based!
–Begin to FOCUS on what you want.
–Continuously reassure yourself that everything in your life IS moving in the desired direction.
–Trust and be patient. Do NOT interpret challenges as evidence of a negative outcome. View them as learning experiences and opportunities to fine tune your actions.
The very moment you adopt the above technique, you have moved from creating what you don’t want… to creating what you DO want.
