How You Can Use The Law of Attraction To Achieve Greater Success In Your Life
“I attract into my life whatever I give my attention, energy and focus to, whether positive or negative” Michael Losier
The Law of Attraction is a universal law that basically states that, you will attract into your life, whether unwanted or wanted,whatever you give your energy, focus and attention to. I discovered the Law of Attraction when I was given the “The Secret” to read.
The Secret introduced me to a world of hope, where positivity, motivation, commitment and belief would be key criteria for me to achieve my dreams and success in life. All I had to do according to The Secret was to follow the 3 Step Formula. If I did this then the Law of Attraction would start working in my life.
The 3 Step Formula
- Ask the Universe for what I want
- Believe wholeheartedly that it will happen
- Receive what it is that I have asked for.
At the time of reading The Secret I was trying to get some sense about what was happening in my life. I had just lost 2 jobs within a year. I was looking for a way to climb out of a place where I felt rejected, fearful and had very little self-belief. The Secret without a doubt did help me to start again in that it gave me hope that my life could get better.
There is however a dark side to the Secret. The teachings of the Secret on how to get the Law of Attraction working in your life make it all too easy. The Secret glosses over the realities about how you deal with life especially when it comes to overcoming obstacles, dealing with unexpected life events and experiencing the process of change in one’s life.
All these life events were happening in my life. I wanted to believe that the Secret’s 3-step formula would be the answer to me achieving my dream life. I tried to follow the formula but I was not getting the results I so desperately wanted.
Then Came Another Low Point In My Life
When I lost my third job in 18 months I had absolutely no self-belief, lots of fear and an overwhelming feeling of rejection. I had no more energy left to apply for jobs, go for interviews and get rejected again. I was 50 years old and I knew that my window of opportunity was getting smaller and smaller. It’s a tough world out there when you are trying to find a job and competing with people who are so talented and so young!
I realised that I needed to do things differently and make changes in my life. I love sharing stories about life and I have always wanted to be a writer, speaker and coach. I decided that I was not going to look for a new job I was going to reinvent myself and set up a business doing what I love – writing, speaking and coaching. I knew that the Law of Attraction had all the elements to support me. I just had to figure out how to get the Law of Attraction to work for me not against me.
I read books on the Law of Attraction, listened to podcasts and webinars about the Law of Attraction trying to find what it was that I was missing when it came to applying the Law of Attraction in my life.
This Is What I Discovered
For me the main reason why the Law of Attraction was not working in my life was because I had no ALIGNMENT with what I desired consciously and what I thought subconsciously.
To step out and follow your dream whether it is to set up a new business or leave your job or sell your house so you can travel the world requires you to start from scratch. You are building something that doesn’t exist. It takes lots of courage to do this, stepping into the unknown.
To follow my dream I certainly felt I was stepping out into the unknown and I that the stakes were pretty high. I was over 50 years old and my reality was I believed that I had no room for failure or mistakes. If this business venture failed or I made mistakes then how would I recover?
This powerful self-limiting belief had an influence on how I approached setting up my business as a coach and writer. In hindsight I now know that my fear of failure was what the Law of Attraction was responding to. As a result of this I went on to experience many setbacks and failures in setting up my coaching business. I lost money, could get no clients or sell any of my products and online courses.
I blamed myself for my failures and I felt responsible for creating this mess in my life. The more I focused on the failures, the mistakes and the regret the more bad stuff kept happening. The questions I kept asking myself over and over were “why is this happening to me? This is not what I wanted happening in my life. What was going on?”
It was at this very low point I finally decided to Ask For Help.
On the advise of a close friend I went and invested in working with a business coach. It was through working with my coach that I discovered how much influence my self-limiting beliefs had on me not being able to achieve what it is I desired in my life.
Asking for help was a key step for me to understand how important it is to have clarity and alignment in my life. If I am not aligned and clear about what I want in life then the Law of Attraction is not going to work for me.
Essentially all my self-limiting beliefs supported the fact that I did not subconsciously believe I deserved success in my life. No matter what my conscious mind was thinking or desired at the end of the day if my subconscious mind did not believe my dream or goals to be achievable then the chances were high that it would not happen.
For those of you who are about to step out into the unknown and embark on a new life journey check that your self-limiting beliefs are not controlling you. Acknowledge them and learn how to manage these beliefs so that you can attract into your life the things that will take you closer to achieving your goals and dreams in life.
With alignment working in my life now the Law of Attraction is responding to what I want to have in my life. I know how to attract into my life the positive things that will take me closer to my goal of having a thriving and financially sustainable business as a coach, writer and speaker. Sustaining alignment is a life long journey and it does take hard work, focus and commitment however the rewards make it so worth it.
The Law of Attraction will work for you, if you have clarity about what you want, a vision of where you want to go and the self-awareness about what you need to manage within you so that you can achieve great success in your life.
“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else” Yogi Berry
