Now, this is a concept that may very well be familiar to a lot of you, but of every lesson I’ve learned over the past few years of studying mindfulness and yoga, the most potent one has probably been around the serious power of intention.

Do you remember when that book “The Secret“ was EVERYWHERE!?

I believe it came out in 2006? The thing became a pop-culture phenomenon seemingly overnight. Probably turned a lot of people onto ‘new-age’ type of ideology for the first time. Praise be to Jebus (/sarcasm). The whole philosophy behind the thing is a new-thought concept known as the law of attraction (simply put: “like attracts like”). It’s the idea that positive thinking will create a positive life for you, while negative thinking will create a negative life.

If you do a little poking around the internet about this whole realm of thought, it won’t take you long to discover that the ideas packaged up and presented in this cute (and controversial – for its ingrained naiveté) little publication are nothing new. The world of neuroscience has known for a long time that “the neurons that fire together wire together“ (you may remember my mention of this in a recent post), or, if you prefer, practice makes perfect.

Long story short, there’s nothing magical about the fact that if I spend almost all of my time thinking about how dope of a rapper I am, I’m inevitably going to grow into being the dopest rapper. (Or, at least a lot closer to it.)
