IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT, DO IT WELL.
Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week I want to explore The Law of attraction’s bases of taking everything you do seriously. We live in a fast pace world that inundates us with technology, and sometimes we lose ourselves in those technological advances that are supposed to make our lives better. Imagine e-mail for example. What an amazing product right? Well how much of your day is consumed by this product if you are not too careful? Social media is another example of a tool that can be your “friend”, pun intended, or it can isolate you in a false sense of belonging.
I bring up these things because in the West specially, we have this love, hate relationship with multi-tasking. You may want to see my blog on multitasking as well. We think the more we are doing the more effective we become. That is really not the case for most people. In fact studies have shown that multi-tasking in fact decreases your efficiency, as well as the quality of the work you do. Just Google “multitasking” and you will see tons of results for studies on the subject. It is really simple to understand. When you have your focus dispersed you cannot really put one hundred percent of your effort into anything you do.
Let’s look at it from the stand point of The Law of Attraction (LOA). When you are concentrating, visualizing, and focusing on different goals, you are sending multiple vibrations into the Universe. We know from our study of The LOA, that we are always answered. Our job then is to then be open to receiving that which we desire. To do that we have to come into sync with the vibration of what we want. The more focused we are on that vibration, the quicker that sync happens, and the quicker we can manifest our desires into its physical counterpart. You can see then, that if you are dispersing your energies on many things, it is difficult to reach a vibrational sync of any kind with your desires. This will prolong the maturation of your manifestation and bring about disappointments for you.
Let me tell you a story about the time when I had finally decided that medicine was not going to be my career pursuit. After months of soul searching and coming to grip with the idea that all my dreams of becoming a surgeon were for not, I had to find a job, to put food on the table and pay back this immense student loan that I had accumulated. Within 9 months I went through 2 jobs. The first was a car salesman with Saturn. The second was a motorcycle sales man with Harley Davidson. The way I approached those two jobs will demonstrate what type of vibration I sent out.
I owned a Saturn when I started to work for them. As such, I looked at the job as just something to hold me till I found my real career. I told customers about what a great car it was. Used the sales techniques they taught me. Went through the motions. The one thing I had going for me though was that I was very positive and as such I had reasonable success in selling cars. I was personable and made good friends. I think those characteristics opened up the opportunity to join the Harley Davidson team.
When I started at Harley Davidson, I did not own a motorcycle and did not even know how to ride one. That year though, the V-ROD had debuted, and the history of the collaboration of Harley Davidson and Porsche was of immense interest to me because, my dream automobile was, and still is a Porsche 911 turbo cabriolet. Due to my lack of familiarity with the product, I put in allot more focus and attention to learning not only the sales skills, but about the product, as well as about the people who wanted to purchase them. I did not just give it 100%, I gave it all I had.
It took me a few month longer than at Saturn to become proficient at selling Harley’s, but what did happen was that I received an invitation to join a bio-medical sales company that eventually lead to my current career. I fully believe that the effort I put forth at Harley Davidson, opened the doors to come back to a career that utilized all my medical training, opened the door for me to be introduced to the law of attraction, pay off my student loan, and develop the relationships that I have today, with all the blessings that are in my life.
The moral of the story is then, whatever you are committing yourself to doing, do it to the best of your ability. Not only is it common courtesy, but you will gain the benefits of it not just in your current position, but in your future life. The universe will repay excellence with excellence in opportunities. Likewise, mediocre efforts will result in mediocre opportunities from the Universe. It IS THE LAW. There is no way around it.
