By now, almost everyone knows Murphy’s Law: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” It may be an old adage but there’s also something dangerous about it. If someone believes in Murphy’s Law, the chances are that bad things will continue to happen in their lives. It’s not a statement about the inevitability of bad things happening in life but a self-fulfilling prophecy: people who believe that bad things are around the corner are doomed to have bad things happen to them.

The Law of Attraction shows us that the type of energy that we put out with our thoughts attracts similar results in our lives. Thinking negative thoughts such as Murphy’s Law will only make us a magnet for things to “go wrong” in our lives. Believing in Murphy’s Law is essentially giving negative energy an invitation to creep into your life and never leave.

You can reverse this by turning Murphy’s Law on its head. Instead of thinking that anything that can go wrong will go wrong, put this to use instead: “Anything that can go right will go right.” This serves as a reminder that there is no reason that you can’t have a life filled with abundance. If you see something that is possible, it is within your reach. All you need to do is to apply your positive energy toward it and believe that good things will come to you. If you want things to go right in your life, just believe that they will and there’s a good chance you’ll be proved correct.
