The Law of Attraction is one of the most powerful laws in the universe. Just like gravity, it is always influencing your life and reality. And once you are aware of it you can leverage it to create the life of your dreams.
Simply put, the Law of Attraction says that you attract into your life whatever you focus on and feel strongly about.
So, if you focus on the good and positive things in your life, you will automatically attract more of those things into your life.
If you focus on lack and negativity, then that is what you will attract more of into your life. It’s that simple – and that powerful.
Because once you understand how the Law of Attraction works, you can begin to consciously and intentionally change your results and create a better life.
You can begin to choose to respond differently to the situations that arise during your day.
You can choose to think differently by focusing on the things that fill you with joy and purpose.
And you can choose to create the future you want simply by intentionally taking the time to focus on what you want your life to look and feel like – instead of unconsciously living life by default, often creating the exact opposite of what you want.
The fact is, you are constantly creating your own reality at every moment.
Your thoughts determine your feelings, your feelings determine your actions, and your actions determine your reality – so if you want to create a better reality, you have to start by thinking better thoughts.
Because when you are clear about what you want, and you put those clear intentions out into the universe, the resources, the people, and the opportunities you need to achieve your goals will start appearing to you, almost like magic.
Chances are they were there all along, but because you weren’t clear on what you wanted, you never noticed them.
Once you activate the Law of Attraction through your intentional thoughts, these resources and opportunities will light up like neon signs saying, “Here I am! Let’s do this thing!”
Achieve Your Goals With the Law of Attraction
So here are six simple tips on how to more effectively make the Law of Attraction work for you instead of against you.
1. Your Thoughts are Powerful
Remind yourself daily that your thoughts are powerful. They have a very real impact on the world around you.
Your thoughts determine your actions, and your actions declare your intentions to the universe. And the universe will respond to those intentions.
So if you want the better results, you have to think and behave in a way that is in alignment with what you ultimately want to be, do, and have in life.
I suggest you put a 3×5 card or a post-it on your bathroom mirror that says, “The thoughts I think today are creating the reality I will experience in the future.”
2. Dream Big
Don’t censor your dreams or limit your vision with practicalities and probabilities.
You will not be given a dream that you are not capable of achieving. So if you can imagine it, you have the capacity to make it a reality. You don’t need to know every single step of the journey.
Just decide what you want. Know that you deserve it. Believe you can have it, and then take one small step toward it. Then another, and another, and another.
With every step, your path will become clearer to you.
3. Clarify Your Goals
Get really, really clear on what you want your life to look like. Write it all down in as much detail as possible.
The more specific you are about what you want in life, the easier it will be for you to make it a reality.
4. Use Positive Affirmations
Use positive affirmations to keep yourself focused on your goals and to raise your vibrational frequency up to match the frequency of the reality you want to create.
Affirmations work by purposely replacing the limiting beliefs and negative self-talk that you have internalized over the years with positive statements that assert who you want to be and how you want to experience life.
Make sure to phrase your affirmations in the present tense, as if you have already achieved your goals and are living the life of your dreams, and also make sure to include a strong positive emotion in the affirmation, such as gratitude, that you will not only say when you repeat your affirmation but also choose to feel when you are repeating the affirmation.
“I am so happy and grateful now that I own a six-figure business and I get to spend every day doing something I love!”
Positive affirmations are a powerful tool for self-transformation and a key element in creating the life you desire.
When you make a habit of repeating them daily, you will be amazed at how much easier it will be to stay focused on your dreams and attract what you need to make them come true.
5. Open Yourself Up to Infinite Possibilities
Start by becoming more aware of the amazing synchronicity that already exists in your life.
Look for the miracles – the magically serendipitous events and opportunities that seem to appear out of nowhere at just the right time to bring you closer to your goals.
The more you watch for them, the more you will notice them happening all the time, and when you acknowledge them, you will attract even more of them. That’s the power of the Law of Attraction at work for you!
6. Take Action!
Take positive action to create what you want. When you have an idea of something to do, do it, and do it as soon as possible.
All of the best intentions in the world won’t mean much if you don’t take action when the time comes to make them a reality! @JackCanfield (Click to Tweet!)
That’s why it’s so important to take at least one or more small actions every day that will move you closer to the fulfillment of your dreams.
