The Law of Attraction is all about aligning your thoughts and actions with what you want to happen in your life. It practices the success principle of “what you think about, you bring about”. This success strategy gained prominence thanks to the book and subsequent movie ‘The Secret’, which had its world premiere in March 2006. Since then, millions of people all over the globe have applied the universal Law of Attraction to their daily lives and proclaimed that their lives have been better ever since. So, should you be practising the Law of Attraction as well?
One of the great things about the universal Law of Attraction is that its tenets are not complex to put into practice. In fact, many people say that the biggest secret in the movie The Secret is that its doctrines are not classified at all. The underlying principles of the Law of Attraction have been with us, ready to be practised, all this time. So why, then, have we abandoned these steps to success?
Life happened, and somehow, people started believing they did not deserve happiness. People wake up afraid to expect the best and prepare for the worst. Do you see that this is still the Law of Attraction working? By thinking that the worst will happen, people are bringing about problems themselves. So kick the habit! Expect the best, and the best will happen to you.
Here are some simple tips so you can start living the Law of Attraction and start attracting success into every aspect of your life.
Practice the attitude of gratitude
Nothing can be a better caffeine kick than happiness, so why not start your day with this Law of Attraction exercise: remember all the beautiful things you are (or ought to be) grateful for? Even subconsciously, many people live as if they are ‘victims’ instead of ‘drivers’ of life. Avoid this trap by starting each day with thoughts of how great and exquisite your life is at the moment. This mental exercise will ‘set the stage for more beautiful things.
Pay it forward.
The universe is not all about you. The Law of Attraction is based on the universal law of cause and effect, and nothing can be more positively powerful than doing a good deed for someone. You don’t have to go out and save lives. Simple things such as helping an older person cross the street, asking a homeless person outside the supermarket if you can pick them up something to eat or drink, or helping direct someone who’s lost can do wonders on two levels: First, you WILL feel good about yourself, and if you’re happy, the universe will smile back at you in one form or another. Secondly, the person you assisted will also think happy thoughts of you, further attracting positive vibes!
Align your outer world with your inner world. ‘
The Secret’ mentions that you cannot cheat the universe. Even if you think or say you’re ready for happiness and success, how you live, dress and act is the accurate measure. So synchronise your intentions and your actions. For instance, if you want that better-paying job, don’t just wish for it; act on it! Prepare a knock-out resume, network with other people, change your wardrobe and dress for success! Life success is not handed out; it is the end based on your means.
End the day with happy thoughts!
At the end of the day, do this simple Law of Attraction exercise: imagine yourself living a specific ‘moment’. For example, in the romance department, close your eyes and envision a romantic dinner with your special someone (regardless if you already have a special someone or not!). Is your goal to purchase a new home? Close your eyes and picture yourself tending the garden at the back of your new home or sitting down and reading a book in your new home’s living room. Remember, what you think about…you bring about.
The Law of Attraction, as advocated in ‘The Secret’, is one of the most potent doctrines we can be made aware of. So grab this remarkable opportunity to make your life a success. Make each day count by living this success system that never fails.
