The Law of Attraction is a law that states that you can attract the things you desire in life. I've been thinking a lot about this law and how it manifests things in my own life. I can think of many times when I wanted something, I went after it, believed I could get it, and I received it.
So then I start thinking, how can I use the Law of Attraction in my own business? I wanted to attract a wider community of like-minded people in my industry that want to work with me. I knew this is what I wanted. I wrote it down in my work journal, and then forgot about it.
I read blogs and listen to a lot of podcasts about social media and internet marketing. I kept hearing about Blogworld. I decided to follow my instinct that told me, “Get yourself to Blogworld”. And I did. I booked the flight, and put it on the calendar.
On my way to Blogworld, I was getting a little apprehensive. I didn't know a soul at Blogworld. None of my social media friends were attending this year. I decided I was going to challenge myself to talk to as many people as I possibly could. I would start conversations, and not wait for others to speak to me. And I did.
As a result of that one decision, I struck up conversations with dozens of bloggers, traded cards with lots of people working with social media in a number of ways. I traded stories of clients and ideas about strategies that work. I now have a much larger pool of acquaintances I can contact this year when I'm scheduling interviews for my teleseminars, or want information on new strategies for clients. I have attracted that which I desired.
Is it magic? Is it hocus pocus?
No. The Law of Attraction is an attitude, having an idea of what you want to attract or create, then watching as your mind moves your actions to that end. Was I concentrating on the Law of Attraction when I was thinking about going to Blogworld, debating whether I should make the trip? No. But looking back, it was easier for my mind to come to the decision because I had consciously stated to myself that I wanted to attract a wider community of like-minded people. I wrote it down, then forgot about it. But my subconscious did not forget. It helped me attract exactly what I said I wanted.
What do you want to attract in your business this year? Say it. Write it down. Tell me what it is in the comments below. I'm dying to know!
