For years people have been talking about the Law of Attraction. It’s was popularized by the movie, The Secret in 2006. It’s been adopted by everyone from life coaches to financial mentors as the way to get what you want.
It’s also been slammed by some who argue you can’t think your way to getting things.
Some say you have to fully feel the emotions of actually having the thing it is you want.
Others say it’s all about your mindset – you have to believe you already have it.
For many of us, this feels fake. It feels like we’re trying to pull one over on ourselves. Let’s face it, if I’m broke, it’s hard to feel rich.
Yes, there are some flaws in the Law of Attraction, or at least the way it’s been marketed.
Some say it’s not even a real law. Frankly, I don’t know if it is or not. Suffice it to say it’s a concept you can choose to put to work in your life or not.
But there is ONE adjustment you can make to the Law of Attraction to give yourself a better chance of receiving what it is you’re wishing for.
It’s just a slight adjustment of the word, “Attraction” and you may have noticed it in the title of this post.
Practice the Law of AttrACTION, instead.
The Law of AttrACTION is all about envisioning what you want and then taking ACTION to achieve it. Many a Law of Attraction guru has come out and clarified that you can’t just sit around and wait for things to happen. You have to take action. Well, this slight adjustment of the Law of Attraction puts the emphasis where it ought to be… on the ACTION part of the equation.
If you look at anyone who has accomplished anything or achieved great success, they have taken massive action.
Yes, it may be inspired. That action may have intersected with luck and opportunity. But the cornerstone of their success and achievement was they went after what they wanted. They did not sit around and wait for it to appear like a wish granted by a genie with a magic lamp.
How might your life change if you started taking action daily toward what you want most? Just something to think about!
