Why aren't my dreams coming true?
We never just want one thing. We never just think one thought. In fact, on any given day, our scientists tell us we think on average of 10,000 unique thoughts a day. Well, so when we are thinking this many thoughts in a day, the likelihood is that some of our thoughts will contradict one another.
Just because times in life we don't get what we most want, it doesn't mean that we didn't get what we were thinking about. The principle is absolute.
