Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Today I wanted to discuss something that occurred to me when I was on a trip in South of Mexico on a business trip. During the trip I had a day to spend with some friends and we decided to visit the Myan city of Chichen Itza.
As you will see bellow, our guide told us that the entire city was built without access to wheels or horses. People used to carry the stones on their back. Their life expectancy was between 30-35 years old. I am sure they had things to complain about. Their lives were hard. They were the scientists and astrologers of their time. They created calendars that were more accurate than our Gregorian Calendar. They also had amazing display of gratitude for what they believed were the “source” , or “Gods”. Granted sacrificing people at altars is not exactly what I am talking about, but it is amazing what length they went to express gratitude. Their display of gratitude dwarfs anything we do in this day and age.
I was thinking of the stuff I complain about. Mundane things like airlines and travel issues, my phone, the internet connection, or the traffic. I really felt ashamed. And I hope that this short little post will create a little awareness for you as it did for me to be more grateful and do less complaining. Sometimes we just need little reminders that The Law of Attraction is working all the time weather we realize it or not. When you complain you are attracting more stuff to complain about. When you are grateful, you will attract more things to be grateful about. Don’t forget to leave me comments on my Facebook and Twitter feed. Till next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. I was listening to the radio on January 11th, just about a week ago, and I heard that already, 2 weeks into the month of January, almost 40% of the people who have make New Year’s resolutions have given up on those resolutions. So it got me thinking, how could this possibly be? Do we, as a society not have enough self-discipline to continue with a New Year’s resolution for 11 days? I was getting turned towards negativity really quick, I mean 40% is not a joke.
Getting back to my routes real quick and using The Law of Attraction principles of looking for the good and the love, I wanted to give you some suggestions, so your Law of Attraction resolutions will not fail or get derailed as easily.
As you know by reading this blog, or studying the principles of The Law of Attraction (LOA), this universal law states that there is no scarcity in the Universe, there is no competition. Our beliefs however, as human beings depending on how we were raised, or in what situation we were brought up, have ingrained us with those beliefs that there is scarcity. When it comes to desires, visualizations, and goals, you can shoot for the moon and in fact you should set goals that are way out there, but be aware of that gut feeling that might tell you BULL $HIT. The more believable your visualization and your goals are, especially when you first start, the easier the manifestation is, and also it will allow you to build confidence in the process. So if you are new to the LOA, and I would qualify that by saying if you have been only using or attempting to use the LOA for one to two years, then you are new. I recommend when you are setting your goals, set them so they are believable to you. Because in the course of 2 years if you go back and actually calculate how many hours of training, and practice you have dedicated to LOA, I would be willing to bet it would be less than 500 hours.
Remember for us to become experts at anything it requires minimum 10,000 hours of practice. The LOA is thankfully more forgiving than many other skills, but at the same time our resistances and limiting beliefs are also very deeply ingrained in our psyches. So use your clearing methods, anything from EFT (emotional freedom technique) or HO’ O’ PONOPONO, or the Sedona method, whenever you get that resistance during your practice of visualization and The LOA. It is imperative and much more effective to do these clearing when the gut check happens. When that nagging resistance comes up. For example if you have built the habit of reading your goals and visualizing your desires twice a day, as I suggest, as soon as you get that negative self-talk, do some clearing. Do a few rounds of EFT, or say the phrases of Ho’ O’ Ponopono prayer, or go through the Sedona method question and answer. Make sure you set the rating of how uncomfortable that nagging self-talk is before and after your clearing technique. Do the Ho’ O’ Ponopono throughout the day. Do it especially when you get a resistance when working with a visualization or goal. The main thing I want you to take away, if you don’t get anything else from this post is do your visualization twice a day, every single day. I can’t tell you how important it is to do this one simple thing. Because it keeps your mind open to opportunities that come into your life, and it gives you more opportunities to succeed which will reinforce that this process is real to you and it actually works for you. Doing daily things is critical to keep you on task with any goal you set for yourself. Do minor steps towards your goal every single day, even if it is just sitting down for 10 to 15 minutes and brainstorming the next steps, or going to sleep after setting your to do list for the next day so your subconscious mind will be working on those while you sleep.
Keep these things in mind and do them and I will promise you that you will have much more success with your goals and visualizations and the use of The LOA. As always please leave me comments and thoughts on my Facebook page and Twitter feed, and until next week, wishing you the best and to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Today I want to once again reach for lessons from my martial arts training and correlate that with how success and The Law of Attraction (LOA) works in your life. I will give you a brief example from the world of martial arts and then we will weave that into how using the same principles will make your use of LOA more effective.
In jiu jitsu and any martial arts you start training and drilling to get good at techniques to be used on an opponent. But what is very important to remember is that as a beginner in any marital arts, you are bound by rules, and you are placed in an ideal situation for your techniques to succeed. These rules are for you and your partners safety. For example if you are doing a technique in jiu jitsu on an opponent that is following the jiu jitsu rules, all if fine. If you are boxing with an opponent that is following boxing rules everything is fine. Things however, become very different when you are trying to do a bent arm lock in jiu jitsu and your opponent starts punching you or kicking you. Or when you are boxing and your opponent starts to kick you in the groin. That is not the time for learning and is in no way conducive to your success.
The same is true with The Law of Attraction, and success. Visualizing and having a positive attitude is a piece of cake when things are going well, but when challenges arrive and stuff starts to hit the fan, it is a completely different environment. So what’s the answer? Just like martial arts, you train and drill, and you do your practices of your techniques in an ideal scenario and ideal environment. You have partners that are willing and cooperative, and you are following a set amount of rules until you become extremely proficient at making your technique work through thousands of repetitions. This is not just for jiu jitsu. Even in stand up styles, like Tae Kwon Do, you practice your kicks over and over, especially if you are doing areal kicks, you practice them on a stationary object like a bag, then you have a training partner hold pads for you until you have done this thousands of times and can then execute this on a moving target.
With The Law of Attraction and success principles, you follow exactly the same path. You don’t want to wait until things are going haywire to start trying to feel good, and expressing a positive vibration because at that point it is very difficult. You want to go ahead and get really good at practicing these positive vibrations when things are ok, and are going very well in ideal situations. You want to do these thousands and thousands of time within wonderful, and ideal environments, until this becomes second nature to you. So when stuff starts hitting the fan and challenges arrive and you are in the proverbial real life situation, those technique of visualizations, and accessing the feelings that you need for prosperity are automatic and are not as difficult to reach as they would be if you had never practice them before.

Good day and I hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I want to explore the side of The Law of Attraction (LOA) that we frequently ignore, or are bashful about, yet this point is extremely important to your success. More to it, we are usually very uncomfortable with this aspect of The Law of Attraction (LOA), which naturally creates resistance for you to achieve your goals.
What I am referring to is being a good receiver. For some reason, in our Western culture in particular, we tend not to be good receivers. We are outright embarrassed to be receivers. Let me explain this through an example. How do you react when somebody gives you a compliment? Do you just shrug it off, or do you whole heatedly receive it. Most people who I have come in contact with usually shrug it off with comments like, “it was nothing, it is all in a day’s work, or I got lucky”. How do you react when someone gives you a gift out of nowhere? Do say things like, “you shouldn't have”, do you feel embarrassed? Do you feel like “oh I didn't get him anything”?
Learning to be a good receiver is just as important as the other parts of The LOA like visualizing, having good positive feelings about your goals, or doing your affirmations. This is because when you minimize the effect of receiving, you are essentially telling the Universe that you want to be in a situation that whatever comes to you is minimized. In essence you are minimizing the flood gate to your abundance.
I wanted to expand on this principle and add a success tip in this post for you. I want you to start expecting to receive with people you do day to day business. There is no reason why your doctor, accountant, or your lawyer cannot also be your customers. Start evaluating how your products or service can benefit the people that you naturally do business with. When you take your kids to their pediatrician, can that doctor, or their office, use your product or service. When you are doing your taxes, can your tax accountant use your product or service, when you are at the grocery store, can the checker or the bagger use your product or service, and start without any hesitation or embarrassment asking those people that you do business with for THEIR BUSINESS. More importantly be expecting to receive the revenue that can come from this. Very few people, business owners, and entrepreneurs tap into this aspect of clients that could potentially be there for you if you ask. Remember if you don’t ask you will never get a yes for an answer. You are giving them your money, and your business, hence the simple asking of the question should not be embarrassing for you. There is nothing to be lost, and everything to be gained.
