Good day and I hope you are having a wonderful week. Have you noticed it is so much easier to get angry than it is to love? Seemingly little things trip us and we seem to get angry a lot more than we enjoy the finer moments of life. Why do you suppose that is? Today I want to explore that topic and how it relates to The Law of Attraction (LOA).
If you really think about it, your capacity to love or to hate relies on, and is dependent on how much practice you give to each topic. If you are someone that gets angry easily it is because you have practiced that emotion more than you have practiced love. It has nothing to do with your innate self. It is not an identity. It is just something you do. Because of the amount of attention you give to it, by the LOA you are going to attract more and more of it the more you get angry. The good thing is that this is not a catch 22. Because of the mere fact that you control your thoughts, you can start to apply the LOA to attract more wonderful things into your life. How do you do this? You have to do this consciously because subconsciously the world will throw things at you every second, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get angry, upset, and feel sad. Good news does not make the news. Feel free to Tweet that.
So what you have to do is you have to actually go about looking for things to make you happy. Looking for things that make your heart move to joy. Looking for things to love. Start putting pictures of little children playing, beautiful scenery, flowers, puppies or kittens all over your phone, computer and your Facebook page. Get in the habit of looking for good things in every place. Walking around, driving in traffic, or when surfing the internet start looking for things that will make you happy. This way you are actually practicing the vibration of being happy and by the LOA you will attract more and more opportunities to be happy, attract love, and be joyful.
It is a practice and it is a skill set just like any other ability. The more you give your attention to good things, the more good things will come about to take your attention and hence you will experience more joy than anger or hate. Start practicing this and shut the door on negative reactions and negative news that surrounds you on a daily bases. You have a choice of what you listen to. You have the choice of what to watch. Start putting those choices into good use.
Successful people do the things that the general public and the average person does not. It is easy to just go around and discuss what is on the news. Specially right now. It is so easy to get into the “locker room” discussion around the water cooler about what is wrong with this and what is wrong with that. Everybody is doing it. Well that is not really accurate is it? The people who are successful, who are joyous, and are manifesting the lives they actually want are absolutely NOT doing this. They go about and take control of their thoughts. They go about and place themselves in situation that feels good. It is so simple. You always have the choice of how you react to something even though you may not be able to control what happens. You can only do what you can do. 100 % personal responsibility. Control the person you can control. Control the situations that you can control. When you cannot, you have 3 choices. 1) Remove yourself from the situation, 2) change the situation, and 3) or accept it and move on. There is nothing to be gained by getting upset and angry as Eckhart Tolle states in his book The Power of Now.
So take charge of your destiny. Take actions that bring smiles to your face as much as you can so when challenges arise, you are already on a high vibration. I hope this makes sense.

Good day and I hope you are having a great week. Is there a shadow looming in your life now? Do you have issues that you wonder where they came from, and why? Are you wondering what the heck are you supposed to do now? Then this week we are going to get some really good news for you from the field of Success as well as The Law of Attraction (LOA).
I am using the metaphor of shadow here to represent anything that is challenging you right now. I want to let you know that in case you missed it, everyone has challenges and shadows in their lives. Where do shadows come from? Let’s look at it from the scientific point of view. Google search of what is a shadow gave this result
a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface.
Do you see what I see in that definition. A body “coming between rays of light”. A shadow cannot exist unless there is light. Can you see this. Are you reading the same definition I am reading. This means that if you have shadows in your life there is light shining just behind it. Napoleon Hill said “success is a trickster that takes joy in tripping you just shy of triumph”. This is the way I want you to think about the challenges that are in your “now” reality. If you are having challenges, it means you are going to the light.
If you were just sitting doing nothing there would not be any challenges. Challenges by their definitions come to those that are expanding, evolving, and making themselves better. The people who are going after the opportunities. Do you recall the saying “nothing ventured, nothing gained”. Well this is the point dude. You are having challenges and shadows because you are almost there. And when I say almost, you have no idea how close you are. Keep on taking the opportunities. Keep on stepping one foot in front of the other. The light is there, just over the challenge you are facing.
From a success point of view, this concept is an unprecedented fact. Very few people or companies achieved success without going through challenges and shadows in the process or in their careers. The greatest “heroes” are those who faced their shadows and came out on the other side basking in the sunshine in the face of all kinds of obstacles. They were persistent (see my post here ) with proper motivation. They took action (see my post on action ) .
From The Law of Attraction point of view you have to be feeding your mind the positivity that is the TRUTH in every challenge. You know that when you are in the middle of a challenging situation, or in the shadow you are not seeing the forest for the trees. You have to feed yourself the positivity to know and believe with your whole core that there is success over the hill. This is the point where you are going to doubt yourself. When people are going to tell you “I told you so”. But that is not the TRUTH people. There is light on the other side. SAY THIS WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY. You have to be open minded and maybe understand that sometimes you have to slow down to go further. To take a breather and come back and look at the situation with a fresh perspective. Most important point of all is the fact that you have to continually see yourself in the final, completed, successful position you want in your visualization. That type of visualization and thinking is what is going to increase your vibration and attract the opportunities and people that will be able to help you get over this hump.
I hope this makes sense to you and gives you the hope you need to get up and get going again if you are feeling down, and frazzled. If the shadow is freezing you, I hope you can see that the warmth of the sunshine is just around the corner. Do not quit. Do not give up. You are so close. You are almost there. Please feel free to comment or ask me any questions if this is not clear on my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter. I engage with you all over the place, so pass this along to anyone who may benefit from it.

Good day and I hope you are having a blessed day. The topic of this week’s blog post will be reading like a satire to some readers who are students of success principles, and even some hard core Law of Attraction (LOA) students. To the majority of the society though, this will be an eye opening post. I hope it will be educational, and more importantly something that you will take action on.
What is the single most important step to take towards success? Arguably knowing where you are and where you want to go. In addition to writing down your goals, the majority of highly successful people have another habit in common. Taking time to plan their day the FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. What do I mean by this? Simply this, start your day by taking 15 to 30 minutes to QUIETLY plan the rest of your day. Better yet, get this done the last thing the night before and spend 15 minutes fine tuning it in the morning. FRIST THING.
Many people tell me they don’t have the time to plan every morning. The response of you the success students to this is most likely “whhhaaaatttt?”. So I ask you to read it again out loud and see how ridiculous it sounds saying it out loud. Because I want this to have an impact. “I don’t have time to plan first thing in the morning”. Sometimes when we internally dialogue with ourselves it sounds reasonable. When said out loud it will have a different effect. This just sounds backwards. Your success cannot happen without planning.
From a LOA point of view, you have to visualize daily and as you take steps to accomplishing your goals you cannot afford not to start your day with at least positive inputs to your subconscious. All throughout your day, you will in all likelihood be bombarded with negative propaganda. That is just what is out there. You have to feed your mind appropriate fuel first thing in the morning just as you feed your body a healthy breakfast.
If breakfast is the most important meal of the day for your body, the 15 to 30 minutes you take before doing anything else is the most important “meal” for your brain. Most of us and I include myself, have a tendency to grab some tea or coffee, and hit the e-mails first. Before you know it, the time is past and it is noon. If you are disciplined, maybe you get a work out in before, which is much better alternative. Your 15-30 minutes of planning though has to happen preferably before that or right after your workout.
Imagine trying to navigate a path you have not taken before. Would you just start walking as you check a few e-mails, sipping coffee? You would walk into trees, or fall of the face of the cliff. You would take out your map or GPS, or compass and plan your rout carefully considering options, milestones, and landmarks to keep you on track. Once you are done planning your route, then you eat your breakfast and get moving.
You cannot afford not to take time at the start of your day to at least plan the rest of the day. In fact you should do this every day, every week, every month, and every year depending on the time frame of your goals. If may seem like you are wasting time and I assure you nothing could be further from the truth. Once you get into a habit of doing this for a month or so, you will ask yourself how you could have survived not doing this? So please humor me and try this for a couple of weeks. Give it a honest effort and you will see that it will streamline your day, make you more effective, and will increase your vibration from start which can only attract more opportunity to you.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Recently a good friend of mine who had overcome cancer posted a picture of a prayer to “beat Cancer”. When I liked the picture and commented with the point to bring focus on healthy recovery, and health for everyone instead of “beating cancer” I may have touched a nerve.
This is common in my experience as I try to keep my focus on positivity and share the teachings of The Law of Attraction (LOA). When I work with veterans who have given almost everything to protect this country and our freedoms, and we discuss peace, it rubs them the wrong way not to say “we are fighting against war”. When I work with law enforcement on programs to help kids develop and build self-confidence, it also rubs them the wrong way to not concentrate on “war on drugs, or war on domestic abuse”.
So even though I may be pissing off some of the people with this blog post, I want you to know that this is coming from LOVE. It is because I want you, my good friends, my readers, and my clients to access the full force of the Source in your battles. Some people get a charge out of fighting against something initially. That increases their vibration to a high level and for a time, it brings up the results that they want. This is because even though this vibration is coming from a source of negativity, it is internally associated with a feeling of being positive. I hope this makes sense. Initially the experience of treatment of an illness is with the feeling of wanting health. We just have to be careful not to get wrapped up in the “fighting the opposite” and understand that we will attract what we give our feelings and attention to.
As success comes however, and that feeling vibration starts to diminish the focus of the negativity then can take root. Because we are constantly bombarded with negative thoughts, this vibration has a tendency to get internalized subconsciously and backfire. There is a very good reason why Mother Teresa said “I will never attend an anti-war rally. When you have a peace rally invite me and I will be there”. There is a tremendous amount of wisdom in this quote. This is where I am coming from. Realize that after you have won your fight against something, you need to change your focus to the opposite and the thing that you WANT. For example if you have beat cancer your focus now should be on I am healthy. I am in the best health possible. I am so happy and grateful now that I am healthy. My body knows the best possible condition to be at all the time. Do not go to the comfort zone of “I am beating cancer” because now you are concentrating on the Cancer.
The same reason that when you concentrate on debt you cannot achieve wealth applies here. If you want to end domestic abuse, concentrate on happy families. If you want to keep kids off drugs, concentrate on vibrant and excited kids. Please see this post from where it is coming. If this post is bringing up negative emotions of anger, stop now. Calm down and leave it for an hour or two so you can calm your feelings and try to read it with an open mind.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. I don’t know about you but when I want something, I usually want it yesterday, so the second step of RECEIVING that is not my job usually is a difficult thing for me. If you don’t know what I am talking about, I highly recommend you start with the “SOME BASIC POSTS FOR NEW READERS” links on the lower right hand side of the blog page. There are 4 links to some basic blog posts that will bring you up to speed with the basics of the Law of Attraction (LOA).
We know that the desire part and the Asking is happening all the time. That is the easy part. We need to be specific about what we want, and poof step one is done. Now when it comes to the how, that is not our job as you recall. The Source is always granting our wishes. The thing is that we are not always in the RECEIVING mode. That is the time delay thing, and I am telling you that it is for YOUR BEST INTEREST, so just wait.
You are intelligent and you have been brought to this blog page because you are looking for something to make sense of this whole LOA thing and to make your life better. Then allow it to unfold. Don’t get me wrong, I am NOT SAYING SIT AND WAIT. Take the inspired actions, but when things are not unfolding and you are, in vibration with your desires, know that there is something that is coming that is to your best interest. The Source will always protect you. He will protect you even from yourself. Sometimes though we try to push through because as I mentioned earlier we want what we want yesterday. This “free will” thing sometimes gets us into trouble and when your vibration is “I know what is best for me”, well then the gracious and loving Source will allow you the freedom to experience what You can. It is not usually to our best interest. Why? Because we only have a limited view and understanding of our world in our physical form. The Source has an infinite view of what is best for us. Makes sense to let things unfold from the perspective of infinite rather than limited, doesn't it?
I can’t tell you how many times, when I thought things that I really wanted were gone and out of my reach, something came into my reality that was not only what I needed but something I wanted even more. Time and Time again, when I do not force the issue and allow things to unfold while at the same time taking actions on the opportunities what is best for me, happens.
Conversely when I try to push my timeline I either see the error in my ways a few days or weeks after, or I feel the pain of the mistake immediately. But I am only human and I keep on making this mistake occasionally over and over again. It is natural to want and want it now. After all our whole society is being programmed to have things fast. Fast food, fast cash, fast this and fast that. Patience is a virtue seems to be the saying of our grandfather’s generations. Is it any wonder then that they did not make as many mistakes as we did?
I urge you to spend as much time being patient as you do in the first step of getting clear; really clear on what you want. It is the journey not the destination. You can have anything you want to have. You deserve everything you want to have. Follow the process, and when the process calls for patience know that something really really great is coming.
