The Law of Attraction is the closest thing to magic I’ve ever seen. The Law of Attraction basically states that every result and situation you have in your Life, you have attracted with your thoughts.
It’s been expressed many ways over the millennia, from the book of Proverbs (as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he) to Earl Nightingale’s The Strangest Secret (you become what you think about) to Jack Canfield, James Ray and even Oprah this year.
The purpose of this article is to help you understand 3 principles you can use to trigger the Law of Attraction to start attracting top performance and tremendous results into your life almost immediately.
Principle #1 Success Leaves Clues
Anthony Robbins made known/famous the saying that “success leaves clues.” What this means is that getting good results- higher sales, losing 10 pounds, earning a six figure income, etc.- is not mysterious or because of luck. Success in any endeavor happens for specific, predictable reasons that do not favor one person over another. Those reasons can be studied, learned, and, if duplicated, will generate similar results again and again. If you study the success of others you can find the clues to your own!
Principle #2 What You See is What You Get
Normally the phrase “what you see is what you get” is used to indicate that you should take something or someone at face value. What I mean in this case is actually a restatement of the Law of Attraction itself: The pictures you see mentally (what you see) inevitably become the results in your life (what you get).
What we all need to understand is that this Law is in effect all the time. Many times we don’t want to believe this because it means that we are fully responsible for the outcomes in every area of our Lives. If we acknowledge this, it becomes impossible to be a victim. The good news is that if we create our mental pictures consciously the outcomes we want WILL start showing up. Every time.
Principle #3- What You See What You Look For
You probably know that you can and will see both positive and negative in the same situation or person. Think about it, if you’ve ever been in a relationship where you were thinking about and looking for all the wonderful things about the other person, what did you see and how did you feel? Right- it was like a honeymoon! Fast forward a few months (Weeks? Years? Days?) and in the same person you saw only negative or irritating characteristics. Same person, you were just looking more for the negative and therefore you saw it.
Without a long scientific dissertation, our brains are actually wired to notice what we are looking for and tune out other influences. So it only makes sense that if you are consciously looking for the positive in a situation or person, you are much, much, much more likely to see it.
Tying It Together
So what does all this mean? Well, it’s actually a very powerful way of making the Law of Attraction work in your favor, and the main action point is to start actively learning.
When something goes right in your life or in the life of anyone around you, ask the question, “What caused that to happen?” Then get in the habit of doing this regularly. If you start looking for the clues to success, eventually you will tune your mind to start seeing those clues almost instinctively.
If what you SEE is what you GET, it’s a foregone conclusion that those pictures of success will start manifesting themselves in ways that you will find both amazing and rewarding. Just start looking for the clues, and feel free to contact me along the way.
