RISMEDIA, April 1, 2009-As a real estate business coach I get asked this question a lot. “Does the law of attraction still work in today’s economy?” The answer is yes, the law of attraction works in any economy.
In fact the law of attraction works 100% of the time whether you’re aware of it or not. The law of attraction is like the law of gravity. Even if you don’t believe in the law of gravity, it’s still working. Whether you’re a good person or a bad person, if you jump off a building, you’ll hit the ground.
The law of attraction can work in your favor or it can work against you, but in today’s economy, it’s even more important to use the law of attraction in your favor. Why? Because the media is painting such a negative doom and gloom picture that your consciousness absorbs all of this media blitz, and consciously or subconsciously you start focusing on what you don’t want, which is scarcity and lack, the two things the media is talking about most.
If you have any exposure to the news, you know how easy it is to start feeling depressed even after just a little bit of news. The law of attraction is still working in this case because what you focus on expands and if you focus on lack and scarcity, doom and gloom, the poor economy and so forth, that is exactly what you will manifest as your result. However, the good news is that it’s possible, and not only possible but actually imperative that you use the law of attraction to your advantage while the rest of the world is focusing on the doom and gloom that is being reported on a daily basis.
The most important thing to remember is that you have a choice. You can either focus on the gloom and become a victim like most people, or you can choose to use the law of attraction to create the kind of results that you want. Remember, like attracts like and you get what you focus on. No matter what is happening in the economy, you always have the choice to focus on abundance as well as the opportunities that are available to you.
What the media doesn’t report is the good news because the media sells better when it reports bad news. All the more important why you should look for the good news. Most people probably don’t know that there were more millionaires created during the Great Depression than at any other time in American history because the media doesn’t report news such as this.
Did you know that Napoleon Hill said: “Within every adversity is an equal or greater benefit,” or that in today’s real estate market there are wonderful opportunities? None of these things are spelled out for us in the news, but you must look for them, because they are there.
One of my former clients is doing exceptionally well in today’s economy because she stands out. She is unique. She doesn’t bring doom and gloom to her clients. Instead, she provides her clients with positive news that will help them benefit in today’s economy.
Do you want the law of attraction to operate in your favor? Then start using it now.
First, know what you don’t want. This should be very easy as the things you don’t want include everything the media is talking about. Once you decide what you don’t want, focus on what you do want. The things you do want will probably be an abundance of ideal clients. Make sure you clearly define what you mean by an ideal client.
Next, clearly define your vision and see what it feels like to have what you want. After you have clarified your vision, ask yourself: “What self-limiting beliefs do I need to release to manifest my vision?” If you have self-limiting beliefs such as “There’s never enough money,” or “To be successful you have to work long hours, struggle, and sacrifice,” or “I don’t have what it takes to be successful,” then those beliefs will stop you from succeeding.
With the help of a mentor or a coach you can find a way to turn these negative beliefs into empowered beliefs such as: “There is an abundance of money,” “We live in an abundant universe,” “I am a child of God and God wants me to have abundance,” “I have all that it takes to succeed,” and “To be successful I need to work smarter, not harder.”
In summary, there’s never been a better time to use the law of attraction in your favor. In fact, if you don’t use the law of attraction in your favor, it will use you and you will become one of the statistics that the news is talking about. Remember what Napoleon Hill said: “In every adversity is an equal or greater benefit.” Your job is to find it.
