Have you heard yourself or others say, “This has shown up 3 times in my life lately. It must be a sign that it’s right for me.” First, who decided there is something significant about anything showing up 3 times? You see, when you give your attention, energy and focus to something, the Law of Attraction checks in with you and gives you more of whatever you are placing your attention on.
Definition of the Law of Attraction:
“I attract to myself whatever I give my focus, attention, or energy to—whether wanted or unwanted.”
The reason why something shows up in your life the second time is not because it’s right or wrong for you, it’s showing up because you gave it attention the first time. When something shows up for a third time, it is because you gave it so much attention the first and second time. When you attract negative things in 3’s, in those cases you don’t tell yourself “This must be meant for me because it showed up the third time.”
Remember, you are accountable for everything that shows up in your life. Let’s take a look at the word “accountable” more closely. There are two words buried within it: one is ABLE and the other is ACCOUNT.
Accountable = able to account for
As things show up in your life, whether negative or positive, you are now able to account for why you attracted them, whether wanted or unwanted.
Start noticing things today that you are attracting and take ownership by saying, “I’m accountable for attracting these results.” If you are getting great results, celebrate them, brag about them, and enjoy telling others that you’ve received them. In the future, when you attract something negative in your life, briefly recognize that you are able to account for why you attracted that. Spend time getting clear about the way you do want it to be, hence shifting your attention from what you don’t want to what you do want.
