I’ve been reading a book that says there are only so many plots for stories. But not to worry, the thing that interests us is the how. How will the guy get the girl? How will the hero triumph?
I have read some things about the law of attraction that say the how of something will take shape once we have defined what we want and imagined how we will feel when we have it. The Masters of the Secret with Bill Harris says that when you focus on what you want, you develop ideas about how to get it, you notice resources that could help, you become motivated to act and develop inner qualities. At times this may seem effortless, but it’s not.
The thing that interests us is the how. How can we accomplish the desired goal? What actions do we need to take?
