Imagine for a moment that it’s Monday. The alarm clock rings at six. It’s like a thunderclap cutting through the haze of yesterday’s white whine and three hours worth of Friend’s rerun.
So you get up… and accidentally bang your knee on the bedpost. Dark murderous thoughts fire across your neurons as you amble to the bathroom where you stub your toe.
Bam. Suddenly everything and everyone is public enemy number one.
You snarl at the wife handing you eggs.
You froth at Junior offering you coffee.
And you kick the fat hairy walking sofa licking your hand.
The rest of the day obviously spiralled for the worst- in fact you almost get fired for biting off the boss’ head.
That’s the Law of Attraction working against you. What you think and feel attracts the same. The Law of Attraction is simply the manifestation of your mind in the real world.
Let’s do a little experiment.
Hold out your arms and ask a friend to push it down as you think of something great- like when you snagged a promotion or enjoyed a night of steamy sex. He’d have difficulty pushing.
Now repeat the same while thinking about debts, bills, war or your in-laws.
He should push it down very easily. What gives?
Your mind transforms your body. Simple as that. What you think and feel empowers or weakens you.
Do you want to go around the world lugging a bunch of energy-sapping emotions? Or do you want to dominate your environment?
Here are five amazing tips I’ve implemented to explode the power of attraction in my life:
1) Always ask yourself “What Great Things Can I accomplish today” upon getting up. This sets the tone of your day and primes you attract positive opportunities.
2) Always be grateful for the things you took for granted. Like simply that you’re breathing. Say “Thank you, Im still breathing! Im luckier than that bloke under the tombstone.” Gratitude naturally and easily conditions you for affuence and attracts more empowered men and women into your life.
3) Something bad happen? Shrug it off and flick it from your jacket like lint. This action rapidly kicks any negative thoughts that may attract bad things into your day.
4) Hang out only with positive people. Like attracts like. Remember that.
5) And finally… treat people the way the expect to be treated. They will reciprocate and hold you in high regard. Build your social network on the right foot and expect to fly to the top of your aspirations. Attract the right people, support them and they will attract for you the right conditions for success!
Retirement Planning And Why It's Dumb
Know what? just this morning, before I popped open my laptop, a heretical thought crossed my head.
It's this: planning and anticipating your retirement is like insurance policy. Never Ever take it as the sole reward to the years of working. Simply, it is a mere hedge against what we all fear at the end of life: becoming so decrepit,that we can't physically mow lawns to buy ourselves a Happy Meal.
To my mind, retirement as the final goal of an executive is darn stupid for three critical reasons.
First it's hinged on the presumption that you abhor what you are doing throughout the most physically productive years of your life. Is this how you want to trudge out to work the next 30 years of your career- feeling that you gotta endure decades of hell before well-earned respite? Millions of shmoes out there are unhappy, depressed and leap buildings when they deem work as much fun as getting a triple bypass.
Second, many folks will never retire and maintain even a greasy-microwave-chicken-for-dinner standards of living. Think about that. Even Five Million is a loose change in a stinking economy where your retirement might last twenty years; and runaway inflation delfates your purchasing power 4% to 11% each year. Doesn't add up, doesn't it? Your golden years become Ghetto-class life revisited.
Finally, if you do save up for a comfortable, much-desired retirement, it implies that you're one ambitious, hardworking son-of-a-gun. So what happens? Three days into lounging at that luxury home for the decrepit, you'll be flaming bored, you'll want to kick every senior citizen and her cat out of your way. You'll start scanning the job market and even start a new corporation- in your flannel pajamas. Hmmm.. quite defeats the purpose of waiting for retirement, huh?
So what's my point...? I'm not saying don't plan your retirement. That wouldn't be wise. What I'm saying is, never mistake retirement for the end goal. That's really dumb. Instead, look to each day as as source of new inspiration, an opportunity for great things that you can enjoy NOW and instead of at retirement.
Stop and think about that.... Imagine what life will be like if every week was a of mini-retirement? Now that's heaven!
