“Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world.” — Eckhart Tolle
This quote is one one of my biggest mantras that I always come back to. Whenever I’m riding through life on victim auto-pilot, I re-read this quote and it wakes, or rather slaps, me out of my victim daze.
Not getting complimented on your sexy new outfit?
Better yet, give a (genuine) compliment to someone else.
No one is calling you to ask how you’re doing?
Call THEM to ask how they’re doing.
Put your ego’s tit-for-tat rule aside and be the source of what you want.
Not getting invited to any parties?
Host your own party and invite who you want.
No one saying hello to you?
Go first. Say hello to them.
When you become the source of what you want, what you want starts to appear.
