I left my sister’s house at 9.30 am. I had an appointment to have breakfast with a dear friend.
Due to Mexico City’s insecurity, I was not very keen on taking a cab.
Knowing how Law of Attraction works, as soon as I realised I was thinking of fear and insecurity, I redirected my thoughts to having a pleasant and safe journey.
I found my cab.
From the moment I got on it, we started joking.
I asked: How’s work?
I was already expecting the so mexican answer: Rubbish, it’s all the government’s fault.
Instead, the cab driver replied: Let me tell you a saying from my village, Señorita:
“I don’t come to see if I can make it. Because I CAN MAKE IT, I come”
Wow. That is a lesson of attitude.
We continued chatting, until we reached a traffic light.
The contiguous car driver asked him for instructions. My cab driver replied friendly and gently.
Although he was asked to repeat the answer 3 times, he always did it in a happy manner and with a sincere desire to help.
He told me he was from Michoacan, a state in Central Mexico.
He explained all the lifecycle of the Monarch Butterfly I was fascinated.
As we went along Insurgentes, he taught me about mayan maths, and how his grandfather advice – “Don’t judge. Instead, try to understand why they do what they do in the way they do it” – had helped him so much.
As a symbol of appreciation, I gave him 50 pesos instead of the 30 of the actual fare.
When I handed in the money, I said: “Take this as a present. This is because you are the kind of people Mexico needs. Because you make a big difference. God bless you”
I received a present today. Not only I had a quick and safe journey. Besides, I learned a great lesson for life and fascinating facts about my favorite animal.
He, on the other hand, received appreciation for his work, and a little extra he didn’t expect.
It was a win-win relationship.
Each time I verify how infallible Law of Attraction is.
What you focus on, it grows.
So if my thoughts and my way of perceiving reality are one of the few things I can control in this world, I decide to focus on the positive aspects of life.
And they will grow, I am sure. :)
