The Law of Attraction and Your Business
You’ve probably heard about the “Law of Attraction” that is covered in popular books by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Many people claim that the law of attraction has its roots in Buddhism, others say that it’s about Karma. The fact is, it doesn’t have to originate from a particular religion to be a useful – it can simply be a way of thinking and, ultimately, living.
Basically, the law of attraction says that what you visualize in your mind and with your emotions can become a reality. By believing that you are present in your thoughts and feelings, you are said to “attract” those things you desire. By thinking of them and having strong feelings about them, you manifest them in your life. When you tap into the law of attraction, you visualize yourself in the place you want to be.
According to the law, you will attract the people, things, and opportunities necessary to manifest your desires in real life.
You’ve probably experienced this before without thinking too much about it. If you focus on the positive things in life, you start to notice more positive things. If you focus on negative things, you’ll start to see and experience more negative things. You’ve probably said, “Could this day get any worse?” or “Do I have a sign pinned to my back that says: ‘KICK ME’?”
As a child, I remember not wanting to go to school. I remember complaining to my parents that I had a stomach ache… you can’t go to school with a stomach ache, right? But the more I talked about it and the more I thought about it, the more my stomach started hurting and I became physically sick.
You attract those things on which you focus your energy. That’s kind of like a super-power. That being the case, how can this law be applied to your business?
Here are some ideas.
What Do You Want?
Determining what it is that you want is the beginning of applying the law of attraction. After all, you can’t visualize your dreams if you don’t know what they are. So, it’s a good idea to begin by being specific about what you want from your business. Production targets, revenue targets, profit margins… be specific.
Visualization is said to create your personal “vibration.” The law of attraction is said to respond to this vibration. Each day, visualize yourself as a success in your business, whatever that looks like for you. Try to make the visualizations specific – you receive a huge produce order; you join with a powerful business partner; you find 100 new clients. Spend time each day with these thoughts in the forefront of your mind.
Imagine that you have already achieved what you want; visualize what that looks like, feels like, and all the positive things that are part of being that successful. This is said to heighten your awareness to the opportunities you will begin to attract.
Believe It’s Yours
The law of attraction says you need to accept those things that come your way as a result of your attraction. Like any belief, you need to overcome doubt and trust that you will, in fact, attract what you want. If you want to sell more of your products or services, for instance, believe it can happen. As you visualize, move into trust. Accept that these business goals and achievements are yours.
Many times, we don’t achieve a high level of success because we don’t believe we deserve it. Deservability issues are self-imposed barriers. You need to truly believe that you deserve these accomplishments and dreams.
If you continue to think you’re not worthy, it will affect the vibration you send out, and attract negative results.
Be Careful of Negative Thoughts
The law of attraction means you attract those things you focus on – so if you attract negative things, it is due to a negative vibration you sent out. The law of attraction applies to bad things as well. In other words, if you feel you aren’t worthy of success or not capable of achieving success, you’ll start seeing things that support that negative view.
Always maintain a positive attitude so that you attract positive results. Think positively, act positively, and speak in positive terms so that you attract the success you know and believe you deserve.
