Go Looking for Problems and You’ll Be Sure to Find Them!

Did you know that looking for problems is actually what creates the problems?

Though the Law of Attraction is clearly at play in our lives, many people are blind to the idea that their thoughts are creating their realities. You can see this clearly as so many people spend the bulk of their energy looking for problems and reasons to focus negatively.

With the Law of Attraction, you get in life what you are focusing on and believing in. If you believe that you will experience problems, you will. If you believe the world is full of problems that need to be solved, that will be your experience.

By looking for problems regularly, we enhance our belief that we will experience problems. So, to help you shift away from problem seeking, below I’ve identified a few common ways people look for the things they don’t want to experience.

If you find yourself engaged in these searches, I’ve included a quick trick you can use to transform your search for problems into a search for “treasures” instead. Consider replacing your problem-hunting with treasure-hunting, and revamp your reality with more of what you want, and less things you don’t!

Problem Hunting v. Treasure Hunting:

1. Asking questions on Google: 

Problem hunting on Google: Typing into your Google search questions about your concerns or worries. For instance, “Why was my friend mean to me?” or “Things to avoid in Mexico.”

Treasure hunting on Google: Asking questions about things you’d like to experience. For instance,  “How can I have a great relationship with my friend?” or “How to have an awesome trip in Mexico.”

2. Talking with your friends and family:

Problem hunting with friends and family: Asking questions you know will have a negative response. For example, “Is your boss still giving you a hard time?” or “Are you still not talking to your sister?”

Treasure hunting with friends and family: Asking questions that are sure to elicit a positive response, For example, “What’s the one thing you like the most about your job?” or “What are you looking forward to doing most when you go to visit your family?”

3. At the doctor’s office:

Problem hunting at the doctor’s office: Driving your medical condition further and further down by asking questions like “How bad can this get?” or “Is this going to be painful?”

Treasure hunting at the doctor’s office: Finding reasons to be hopeful by asking questions like “What can I do for a speedy recovery?” or “What can I do to be as comfortable as possible?”

Become a match to treasures and solutions!

As you can probably see, searching for treasures instead of looking for problems is a fairly easy thing to do. All it requires of you is making the choice to change the kinds of questions you are asking. Instead of asking about what you don’t want to hear or experience, switch it up and ask about what you do want!

This is a very small, nuanced change you can make to your questions and your personal research. As the Law of Attraction works on delivering what you are focused on, focusing on finding treasures instead of problems can be an easy thing to do to improve the quality of your life on a regular basis!

Remember, when you go looking for problems, you are sure to find them! Make sure if you go digging, it’s only to uncover the things you really want.
