The law of attraction, The Secret, “like attracts like” – whatever you want to call it, I’m sure you’ve all heard of it in this day and age.
It’s the concept that we have full control over our lives, and that this control is manifested by our thoughts.
It’s a concept I’ve known about and believed in for years, but there are a few additions to the concept I want to add today.
There’s a science to the law of attraction
But, I’m not going to talk about it today… Kyle, our sexy co-founder already wrote about it last year while talking about the power of the mind. So go check that out. (after you read this of course!!)
Now back to my point…
The law of attraction really works, if you do..
Wikipedia explains the law of attraction as:
“In the New Thought philosophy, the law of attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.”
I agree with that, kind of….But today I’ll focus on the positive stuff and speak about a few personal experiences and learnings of my own.
Yes the idea of thinking about a new sports car and it magically appearing in your driveway sounds good, but this isn’t the case with the law of attraction.I think when a lot of people hear about the concept they shun it away for this reason.
The law of attraction can’t make me rich!
“There’s no way I can just think of being rich every day and then become rich” a friend of mine once said when I tried to explain it to them. They were missing the point, and they were also right…. in a way.
Over the past few years I’ve been super busy, I’ve started a small digital marketing company I work on after my fulltime job in the evenings and on weekends. I started Mindless in April last year with Kyle which has blown up with plenty of exciting things in the pipeline (subscribe to find out when they’re ready)… and I have a heap of other ideas that I’m working on in silence that I can hopefully release soon.
The long and short of it all is I’m putting in work, I have ambitions and goals in life that I visualise daily… but I’m actually doing what needs to be done to make these goals a reality…and low and behold some of these goals are coming to fruition… life is pretty good right now.
Money isn’t everything though..
Correct, and the law of attraction isn’t about making money at all. It’s about your life, your relationships, your happiness . It’s about making all those things better by beleiving they can be, and making the right actions to turn them into reality!
Yeah cool…so how does all of this help me?
Good question, it may help you it may not. But hopefully if this motivates one person to go out there and work harder towards their goals, my job here is done!
