Regardless of how strong and able you are, you can do little in life by yourself. Life is a complex thing, and individuals are interdependent upon each other to make things happen. One individual, separated from everyone else, can accomplish little or nothing towards his personal goals or the societal goals. To be successful, we must form combinations, arrangements, harmonies and agreements with other people in conjunction with favorable environments and resources.
Remember, no man is an island!
We attract the people, environments, resources, and circumstances that we need by practicing the Law of Attraction.
Remember, the Law of Attraction is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into our life. At the crux of our thoughts lie our desires. So be careful to form, cultivate and manifest the right desires. Hold to them firmly, strongly and constantly.
Desires are more than a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. To paraphrase William Walter Atkinson, “desires are the motivating power leading the activities of life! They are the basic vital power which animate the minds of living things and urge them forth to action.”
Without strong desire no one accomplishes anything worthy of the name. And, the greater the desire the greater will be the amount of energy generated and manifested, everything else being equal.
Consider this idea and replace “desire” with “passion”.
That is to say, that given a dozen people of equal intellect, physical health and mental activity – equal in everything else except passion, the one who possesses the greatest passion will consistently outperform the other 11. Albert Einstein summed this up perfectly when he said “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
Well, how do we use our desires to impact the Law of Attraction?
The first and definitely the most important step is to sit down and figure out exactly what you want! This may sound obvious, but this step is where many people get stuck and don’t even realize it. Unless you have a crystal clear version of what you want to manifest, the Law of Attraction guarantees that you will continue to struggle and meet with challenges.
You see, we always end up where we are heading. The problem is that so often we don’t pay attention to where we are heading! But, when we decide EXACTLY what we want, we have no choice but to head in that direction.
Take the time to spell out – in writing – the tiny details of your dream or goal. Know ahead of time what color it is, how big it is, what it feels like, what it smells like, what it tastes like, etc. The more specific you are the better!
For example, you can’t just say “I want to lose weight” and expect great success. You have to be super specific: “I want to lose 25 pounds by Memorial Day so I can fit into the red bikini that I got for Christmas.” THAT is a request that the universe can work with!!
Instead of “I want a boyfriend,” say “I want an attractive, compassionate, funny, man who is at least 6’2” tall with curly dark hair and a well-developed physique.”
Place your order with the universe with the same specificity as you would your order with your local barista!
People who follow their desires are the most successful. When you follow your desires, it is not a question of whether you will receive it, but rather a question of when. While you work toward your desires you will live a life filled with passion and excitement. Your desires will inspire you to take the right steps and action that lead you ever closer to your goal.
The reason why we don’t always go after our heart’s desires is because we do not want our heart to be broken. Rather than deal with the hurt and disappointment, we go for something else. Something easier. Something that we are comfortable with. This way, if we fail, we can deal with the failure in a logical rather than emotional (read: painful) manner. What we fail to realize when we sell ourselves and our dreams short is that we will never be truly happy until we set out to pursue our heart’s desires! We experience happiness when we are being true to ourselves and our desires.
Our emotions are what activate the Law of Attraction. Your heart’s desire creates the most powerful emotions that you can experience and therefore, has the most emotional and magnetic attracting power. When your heart’s desire is driving you, nothing and no one is able to stop you. This is not to say that you won’t experience obstacles and setbacks, but when your heart and mind are set on something, you will never give up. You will do whatever it takes to achieve it.
Dreams (desires) do come true. If it were not so, nature would not encourage us to have them.
