We’ve all heard about it.
Some of us believe it and some of us think it’s New Age baloney.
It’s called The Law Of Attraction. But does it work in the business world?
For those who don’t know of it, The Law Of Attraction is that good fortune (and bad events) are actually attracted by our thoughts. If you ardently desire and deeply believe something is going to happen, then it often will.
Whether it works in the business world is a super important question, because if it does then practicing it could change your entire financial and professional life.
A few weeks ago, something amazing happened to me.
I kept thinking about a billionaire and believed I would meet him. And against all odds, that’s exactly what happened!.
I tell the story in a video on this site – I really suggest you watch it, it is a truly amazing tale, and every bit of it is true. It really makes me believe that the Law Of Attraction is legitimate.
I’ve spent a lot of time researching the Law Of Attraction when it comes to business coaching, and I believe not only is it true, but we can hugely increase our good Attraction in business by doing the following things:
1. GET VERY, VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT.
I coach many CEO’s and entrepreneurs, and I find that many are simply not super clear about their goals for the next 6 months. The more time you take to increase your goals clarity, the more likely you are to ‘attract’ successful results.
One of the best ways to do this is to put your goals down on paper and read them 3 times a day. That may seem excessive, but I’ve found that reading your goals several times a day massively increases your awareness of them and also enhances your focus enormously. You end up getting very, very clear about what you are wanting to achieve and are far more likely to take the actions that will create that achievement. And arguably attract good into your life.
2. MASSIVELY INCREASE YOUR DESIRE FOR YOUR GOALS.
I find a lot of people in business are intelligent and efficient, but their desire levels are not very high. According to the Law Of Attraction you must have white hot desire and ‘love’ for your goals- only then will you magnetize them into your life.
In my own personal experience this is absolutely true. When I really cared about a goal with massive desire, I usually had much better luck getting it than if I was nonchalant and purely logical in my thoughts about it.
3. HAVE HIGH GOAL EXPECTANCY.
This is an interesting one. Just having a goal doesn’t necessarily attract it into our life. We have to not just identify what we want, but we also need to fully and completely expect it to occur. Only when we have this positive self expectancy does the Universe take action to help us manifest our goal- at least according to classical Law Of Attraction theory.
Many of us want a goal, even deeply desire a goal, but deep down don’t expect it to happen. This is of course a matter of faith, and faith can be turned on quickly if we just choose to believe.
Once again, the amazing story I tell on video about the billionaire is an extraordinary example of this.
Of course we may never know if the Law Of Attraction works for business, or if it’s merely a superstition. But I believe in it and I’m very certain that if we do the three things above each day we increase our changes of achieving our goals enormously. Give them a try. You have nothing to lose and a colossal amount to gain.
