How to Attract Success Using the Law of Attraction
In order to attract success in your life you first have to understand that you must take on a certain mentality. Just a slight shift in mentality can change the energy of success you wish to experience. Whatever area of life you choose to be successful, whether it be in business, as a parent, a good relationship or success in your physical health, you can easily alter your mentality to the level of success you desire.
Here are some tips on how to make a shift in mentality that will help you attract more success in your life by using the Law of Attraction.
Oftentimes when people think of the Law of Attraction they are thinking about what they are going to get and what they are going to have, however, that kind of thinking is all external. Instead, make a simple change by asking yourself what do I want to be? Ask yourself what you want rather than what do you want to have. We tend to focus on our desires by looking for something outside of ourselves; for something to come to us. That’s not how the Law of Attraction works. The Law of Attraction is about mirroring back what you are. So if you focus on what you want to be rather than what you want to get, it will allow you to step into your own power.
Let’s say you are running a business; perhaps you are selling jewelry. If you focus on wanting to have more money, wanting to have more customers for the business, you are actually focusing on the external things you have to have. However, if you change your focus towards what you want to be in this business you can shift the energy by saying, “I want to be a great jewelry sales person.” Focus on being the best entrepreneur you can be. Tell yourself, I’m going to be a successful business person who does this in a really fun and cool way. Now you’re beginning to focus on the question of how you can be what you want to be rather than looking for external validation. Then, ask yourself how you make yourself better, how you can hone your skills, and how you can project the essence of being what you really want to be.
If you’re a parent, perhaps you want to create a better relationship with your kids. Perhaps you’re looking to get your kids to show you they love you, or you’re looking for hugs and adoration. Turn it around and focus internally and say to yourself, “I want to be a great mom.” When you get up in the morning, think about honing your skills as a mother.
If you want to improve your overall physical health, focus on how you want to feel. Remember a time when you felt at your best and bring those feelings into your mind and body. If you are comparing yourself to others, you are focusing on something that is on the outside of you. Visualize yourself at optimal health. You could carry around a photo of yourself from a time when you felt at your best. Look at it every day and remember how it felt when that photo was taken. Before you know it, you will begin to experience better health and therefore, you will start to feel better about yourself.
When you start focusing internally on sharpening your skills in any area of life, your external world starts to match what’s going on inside. You’ll start to notice your kids are nicer to you, you get the smiles, you get the love and the hugs. As an entrepreneur you’ll notice the customers start coming in because you’re not out there chasing them. Project the energy that attracts the customers to you and though it may be quite challenging, if you want better health, focus on how you want to feel: do your best to take away your focus on how you currently feel.
No matter what accomplishments you want in life, if you’ve been focused on what you can have like where is the money, where is the fame, where is the external validation—bring it inside. Ask yourself what do I want to be and focus on being that to the best of your ability. I assure you, you’ll see much more success using these techniques with the Law of Attraction.
