Law of Attraction Tip #3 May 19, 2011

Where you give your focus, is what you will manifest in your life. For instance, do you read the news? What did the paper say today? I looked. The first 30 pages focused on war, strife, murder, disaster and politics. The primary emotions of these subjects are more often than not, anxiety and stress. And the results of this daily dose of anxiety, morning after morning? Situations in your own life causing these same emotions of anxiety and stress. Traffic jams. Chronic sickness. Obesity. Problems with your family and your spouse and your co-workers.

And vice versa. Focusing on, and stressing out about any of these other problems will do nothing but snowball your stress into other areas of your life. You cannot heal ANY part of your life if your attention is focused on situations and circumstances that you do not want in another area of your life. It’s a never-ending cycle. You must learn to accept your current situation and feel good about it. Feeling great would be better, but I know from personal experience that it’s very difficult to feel great when you’ve eaten only a can of peaches in the last two days. Feeling good is a start. And it’s certainly up from where you are right now, is it not?

I have a few really wonderful memories that I’ve managed to preserve in my mind almost photographically, that I call on when I’m in a situation that causes me angst. I find a quiet place, close my eyes, and call on these memories, then smile as I vividly relive them.

Another trick? Give something away. When I was broke and hungry, I gave away a precious can of fruit to a homeless man outside of the grocery store. Why? I knew how it felt to be hungry. But I was in a better position than he. I had a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in! How lucky was I?! It made me feel good, and very soon after, I began to attract more situations and circumstances that made me feel good.

Another thing, keep a log of the good things that happened to you in a day. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by events and forget how great you have it. Start with “I woke up in a warm bed.” “I ate a warm breakfast.” I was early for work.” “A co-worker brought coffee and donuts for everyone.” “My boss congratulated me on a job well done.” It’s a very simple thing.

Try it, I’m sure you’ll notice a difference.

Funny how a choice and 24 hours can change things. This is sort of an update to yesterdays post, in which I made the commitment to commit. You can read it here to catch up.

Today, my co-worker and I were standing around minding the showroom. It’s the Saturday of the Easter long weekend and so, predictably our dealership was very slow. Eventually a younger man and his girlfriend came in and began browsing around. Now, for anyone who doesn’t understand the car sales industry, it can be extremely cutthroat at times, so when my co-worker motioned for me to take this customer I was taken aback. Normally the younger gentlemen who come in tend to look at the lower end of the spectrum in terms of our product but he was asking questions that didn’t suit that area, and so, after some talking back and forth I discovered that he was interested in our top of the line sports car. Wonderful! Younger guys like this tend to be tire kickers with no real desire to purchase, so imagine my surprise when I discovered  that he was able to drop cash for this particular automobile? Super wonderful! It turns out his father is a commercial real estate mogul in our city. Wow. Just my luck. đŸ˜‰ So he’s coming back next week to purchase the car with cash.

But that’s not all. My best friend actually called me a few minutes ago and asked if I was seeing anyone. The answer being no, he told me that he would like to set me up with a lady who is aiming to be a doctor! Imagine that? A heavily tattooed hippie guy who has never had a girlfriend, and a highly educated doctor and he thinks enough of us both to set us up on a date. I’ve no idea if it will work out, but two wonderful events in less than a day is more than coincidence.

The Law of Attraction is real. It works. You just need to be aware and recognize it for what it is. By being willing to commit, I attracted a committed buyer and a potentially committed woman. Go figure. That’s magic if I ever saw it.

 

Law of Attraction Tip #1 April 23, 2011

My very first post on the law of Attraction. I’m not quite sure how to explain it to the uninitiated. I would recommend watching the movie ‘The Secret’. This movie is sort of a synapse, and is truly just the tip of the iceberg. I’m unsure if I will ever truly understand it myself, but I have managed to come to understand bits and pieces. I’ll explain in various blog posts how I’ve used it and come to understand it.

My best friend and I are both currently car salesmen. Recently we were sitting down with a couple of beers as young men are apt to do from time to time, and he was telling me where his difficulties were in his dealership. Essentially, he was having problems with customers who were constantly arguing about the cost and price of the cars he was selling. As we talked it over I remembered something that he had mentioned in a conversation a few weeks earlier, and so I asked him if he had concerns with money in his own life. Low and behold he admitted that he was very concerned with his own finances.

I then began looking at what sorts of objections were showing up with my own customers. It was a pattern of indecisiveness. Most of them were had no ideas which product they wanted and often ended up making no decision. Often, I believe, because they were scared of making the wrong decision or that they might not like the car a year down the road. I realized that this has often been a pattern in my own life. I’ve been a very indecisive for much of my life and it has always been a bane.

I’ve committed now to something. I commit to being a teacher and a leader. I want to empower the masses and I want to awaken people to their own greatness. That’s what I commit to.

So! In a nutshell, this is just one of many ways that the law of attraction can affect our lives. It’s just the tip of the iceberg, people.

Goodnight!
