199 – “You cannot attract what you resent.” Dr. George Fraser

Hey, Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose, the short, actionable podcast for mamas who want more. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of Quote Thursday today, and today’s quote comes from Dr. George Fraser, “You cannot attract what you resent.” Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.

What is something that you resent? Because if you resent it, it’s not going to come your way. And sometimes these resentments are subconscious. So they’re a little bit more difficult to recognize. But look at the last time, something irked you, or you were judging someone…like even think about social media, you’re scrolling through and you’re like,

“Oh, look at blah, blah blahs new Mercedes showing it off…”

or “Oh, look at them building a house, they don’t even need that big of a house. Nobody needs that big of a house…”

Or “Look at that person. They just get to spend all day with their kids. And they always just look like they’re having fun…”

There’s no way, any of these things that you resent. You can’t have, you can’t attract that. Because everything in life is energy. There’s energy all around us. There’s two things in this world, there’s matter and there’s energy. So if it’s not matter, if it’s not something physical, then its energy, and your thoughts and your emotions are energy. And what you put out is going to magnetize what you get back. So if you are resenting people with money, wealthy people, you’re not going to be wealthy. If you are resenting people that get to spend all this time and seem so happy with their children, guess what, you’re not going to spend a bunch of time and be happy with your children, or no matter the time you spend with your kids, you’re not going to be happy because you are resenting that.

Another way to look at this is what do you really want? Do you really want to be wealthy? Do you really want to travel the world? Do you really want to stay home with your kids? Whatever it is that you really want, ask yourself why you don’t already have it. And it may be because you actually resent it.

Mama, your action today is to think of something that really irks you. Like when someone does something or achieves something and you’re just like, “oh…” you get that kind of like nasty feeling inside. And if you can’t think of anything right now, go on social media and just start scrolling through. And I almost guarantee you, you will find something that feels a little icky and irks you a bit. And then look at that something, is it actually really something that you want, is it irking you because it’s something that you want, and are you resenting it because you want it and don’t have it? Because if you resent it, because you don’t have it, you’re never going to have it. You’re like, “oh my gosh, Meghan, this is me. I don’t know how to stop resenting it like what do I do? How do I get that thing I want when I am upset that other people have it and I’m resenting it??” Book your Confident Mama Session today at 35 minutes to focus on you, what you want, where you want to be, and feel fulfilled and get excited every single day.
