What is the key? Worthwhile goals! Let’s start there. Did you know that only 3% of the population ever set goals? By the way, a goal is not one that starts, “Someday I’m going to . . . ” No a goal must be realistic and measurable.
So, you’re a high school graduate and you set a goal that in 5 years you’re going to be a NASA certified astronaut. Is that realistic. Is it doable? Is it something where you can measure your progress? The answer may well be Yes, except that it doesn’t reflect reality at all. It would take 8 or more years from that point in your life. But, with a little modification, it could work.
Let’s talk about how the law of attraction comes into play.
Let’s assume your goal is, “I want to raise my income by 25% over the next two years. I’m committed to doing whatever that takes to accomplish the objective.” Alright, even if you work for an hourly wage, this may be doable for you. Here’s how? Consider your circumstance and begin saying to your supervisor and others, I’m looking for a way to increase my income by 25% or more over the next two years. What are your thoughts?
By doing this you will have made your statement to the world, the universe, you God, your significant other and/or your family that this is what you want to do. You will attract those that can and will want to help you. Why? No one’s absolutely certain but suppose I come to you with something I want to do. Are you going to just listen or will you try to think (even if it’s only for a few minutes) of someway you might be able to help? You’ll spend a few minutes thinking about it because that’s what we do. We try! If you can’t immediately think of something, you’ll say so. Otherwise, you might say something like let me think about that. You might even ask others on my behalf. Before long a few people, a lot of people, hundreds of people and then even thousands of people you don’t even know are looking for a solution for you.
Some of the ideas like robbing a bank, holding up a convenience store or taking more money from a loan you’ll reject immediately. Opps, wait a minute, maybe you don’t rob a convenience store, you go to work in a part time capacity to increase you pay. Well, that may be one solution. It may not be your solution. And so it goes.
Goal first, progressive realization next. Go for it. Give it a try. What have you got to lose?
Tell me how it works for you.
