It’s been about 4 years since I had first been introduced to what is known as the law of attraction. I started by watching a movie called “The Secret”. Little did I know, that it would have such an impact on my life. I started with daily positive thinking and visualization like they talked about, but one important key to the process that I felt I had neglected initially, was action.
I thought that to have everything, all I had to do was think it and believe it and it would appear. Which in some cases, can happen…but what I found out years later is that more often than not, in order to receive what we believe we are attracting, we will discover an action, or a series of actions to take to physically manifest our goals and dreams. Visualizing and believing is a very important first step in the process of creation, but I believe that the purpose of visualizing and believing is ultimately to attract a plan of action.
I’m such a believer in inspired thought, and how taking action the moment it feels right, always gets rewarded! Here in an example of how I have applied this theory in my life:
I live in Vancouver now, but I had been working on the oil rigs in Alberta / Saskatchewan for almost 3 years, and I wanted a change. So every day as we’d drive out to the rig for another shift, I would say to myself, “I’m so happy and grateful that I work from my home town successfully. ” Everyday for 10-15 minutes, I would see myself sleeping in my own bed every night, joining a pool league, making new friends and seeing my girlfriend every day. I kept this up for nearly a month. Then one day the rig got shut down for a few weeks, so I went back home to Vancouver. I thought, this could be my chance, so I started looking for a job…I had applied for a couple jobs that I thought might work, but I wasn’t hearing back from them, and I wasn’t feeling inspired. I became hesitant about leaving the rigs and the high level of income I was used to earning. Of course if I was still living on the prairies, It would have made it a lot easier stay on the rigs…but something in my heart said that this was the right choice for me right now, so I pushed on! Then finally, I noticed a job ad online, and it said to call if interested, I felt this strange urge to do so, so I did. That phone call (so I heard) was the reason why I was chosen for this job over other applicants, even though I had no experience in the field. That following monday I started an extremely enjoyable job that allowed me to work in Vancouver, as well as start and run my own production company from home. I definitely miss all of the guys from the rig, and even the work too, but I’m very grateful for how things worked out. I attracted the opportunity, and I took action when inspired!
So, if you’ve been trying to attract a specific goal into your life, its very important to visualize and believe that it has already happened, but always pay attention to the signs the universe is giving you. Learn to take action now if you want to lose weight, earn a million dollars or learn to play the guitar. Act on inspired thought! The more energy you put into it, the faster you will bring about your goals!
You may be thinking, “Mike, what can i do right now to put this process in motion?” Well I ask you to write out a few of your biggest goals and then for each goal, write out 5 actions you can take towards each one (trust me, the ideas will flow). Then, the most important part…chose at least one of those actions, and act on it TODAY!
Now, my question to you is, have you ever read a book or watched a show that has changed your life. I enjoy all of your feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment, or send me an email by going to my contact/hire link.
Thanks for letting me share my passion with you! Have a fantastic weekend!
