How The Law of Attraction Works: Have you seen the movie “The Secret” or have you read the book “The Secret”?
Now maybe you have heard of the Law of Attraction and you wonder exactly what it is and you wonder, does this actually work? Does the Law of Attraction work? You see, believe it or not, Law of Attraction’s not some complicated, magical ritual or some mysterious, ancient secret, it’s actually very, very simple.
I want you to think of like gravity is an unchanging law of the universe, gravity. When I throw something in the air, it will drop to the ground. When you jump off a building, you will hit the ground. That’s the law of gravity. You see the Law of Attraction is no different.
It is simply the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually and what you focus on expands, just like gravity. To understand the Law of Attraction, first, you have to understand this, that you always attract into your life the people, the things, the resources, the ideas in harmony with your dominant thoughts.
It means that you always attract people into your life in harmony with your current experience, knowledge, and wisdom.
That your life only gets better when you get better.
It means that as a salesperson, if you wanna increase more sales, you want to close more deals or you wanna increase your income, you will only do that if you become better. You want to become a better manager, you will only become a better manager if you become better.
You’ll only become a better father only if you become better. So today I wanna share with you four strategies on How the Law of Attraction works and how to actually apply Law of Attraction in your life. Not touchy-feely, not theory, not woo-woo, foo-foo, tree-hugging theories, I’m talking about how the law of attraction actually works.
How to use the Law of Attraction to create the life that you desire.
Strategy number one and that is confirmation bias.
How The Law of Attraction Works: Strategy 1 – Confirmation Bias
You see, as human beings, we seek information that confirms what we already believe. What does that mean? It’s very simple. Have you ever had this experience? I remember back then, my first dream car was the Mazda RX8, the red RX8.
That was my dream car, that I had it on my vision board. I look at that every single day. You see, what’s very interesting is the minute I put the car on my vision board suddenly I notice Mazda everywhere I go. Everywhere, I see the Mazda3, I see the hatchback, I see the RX8, I see different colors.
I’m like, “Wow, everyone drives a Mazda.” But is it true, or is it simply confirmation bias that because that’s what I focus on, suddenly I could see more? Or were they always there, but I just didn’t notice them? That’s how our mind works.
Let me give you another example. You’re reading my blog and if you’ve been following my work for any length of time, you could see that we have a lot of audience, a lot of fans from around the world.
Now you’ll notice, I want you to look at a comment, I want you to look at the comment for this particular post, that I have. It’s very, very interesting that the same video, the same video that I create, the same lesson someone would say, “This is phenomenal, “this is the best lesson I’ve ever seen.”
And Some Negative are always there…
Someone would say, “Oh, this sucks. “This is horrible, this is BS.” It is the same video, why is that? Because we seek information that confirms what we already believe. When you watch any one of my videos you don’t actually hear what I say, you don’t hear a damn thing that I say, you hear what you want to hear. You see, we all have a filter, we all have this filter. Every piece of information that goes through, that comes through our mind, we have this filter, this is your confirmation bias.
If it confirms, if it reaffirms what you already believe, you will take that in. If it doesn’t, you will ignore it or you will fight, you would argue. And that’s why the same piece of content, the same video, would provoke such different reactions from people.
I know that. It has nothing to do with what I say, it has nothing to do with what I teach, it has nothing to do with what I’m teaching, it has everything to do with your belief, how you see the world, your world view. That’s it. Some people can take the information that I teach and go out there, start a new business, take their business to the next level, make a six-figure income, make a seven-figure income. Some people could take my information and not do a damn thing with it, not do anything with it and say, “This is bullshit.” It’s the same piece of information.
Strategy two, how I make Law of Attraction works in my life and that is I notice things, but I don’t pay attention to it.
How The Law of Attraction Works: Strategy 2 – Notice Things but don’t Pay attention
Now one time we were at a penthouse and it was raining outside, heavy, heavy rain and I was looking over the windows and I was looking out there. I’m like, “Oh my goodness.” I’m like, “Look at the dark cloud. “Look at the pouring rain.” It was so depressing.
And then Jenny walks by and she’s looking at the windows and she’s like, “Oh, it’s so romantic.” I’m like, “Romantic?” Like, “What are you talking about? “This is bad! “We can’t go out, this is pouring rain.” Damn Vancouver, right? She’s like, “No, look at the mountains, “look at that, look at the light. “This is so romantic.” I’m like, “Are you and I looking at the same thing? “What is going on here?” Well, we are looking at the same thing. The difference is that she saw beauty and I saw a dark cloud. It is the same scenario.
See, what you focus on expands. It’s like the filter I was talking about. Most people tend to change their lives with more information without upgrading your filter. Jenny and I, we have a different filter.
You see, you have to realize this, that it is not what happens to you, but how you think about what happens to you that determines how you react and how you feel. It is not the world outside of you that dictates your circumstances or your conditions, it is the world inside of you that creates the conditions of your life. So you could choose, do you wanna give it attention or do you not wanna give it attention?
The more you give energy, the more you’ll attract it.
When you go home and you complain about your work, when you complain about your business, guess what. You go home, you complain to your spouse. “Oh my God, today, the work, the job was so bad, “it was horrible.” You are reliving that experience, you’re giving it energy. Your brother-in-law, your brother, your sister calls you and you’re, “Aw man, let me tell you “about how horrible work is today.”
You’re reliving that again, you are giving it energy. Yes, it has already happened, but you can choose if you want to give energy to it and that’s how you activate the Law of Attraction. The more you give energy to something, the more you’ll attract those things and those circumstances into your life.
Strategy number three.
How The Law of Attraction Works: Strategy 3 – Understand the Universe
Now, when you’re not giving attention, that’s good, but then slowly and progressively even eliminate noticing it. Not even noticing it. You see, you have to understand the universe in some way is kind of a little bit raked against us.
That’s correct. Let me prove to you. Here’s a garden. Now when you plant roses, what do you get? What do you get? Comment below. You get roses, right? Now, but what happens if you don’t plant anything, and you don’t take time to even take care of the garden. You don’t even pay attention to it, what happens? Weeds grow. So it is not the case that if you don’t plant something nothing will happen, no.
It’s rather the case when you don’t plant anything weeds grow and that’s how our mind works. So if you’re not constantly feeding your mind, I call that mind feed, if you don’t constantly feed your mind with positive motivation, inspiration, something that moves you towards your goals, practical, useful information to feed your mind, you are not doing that constantly, weeds grow. And that’s why personally I don’t watch the news. Because most news are nothing more than negativity and they are just designed to grab your attention, it’s just sensations.
Don’t Attract Negativity into Your Life
It doesn’t actually do much to your life, it doesn’t add value to your life, it doesn’t make you a better person except it scares the heck out of you. You watch enough news, you don’t even wanna go out. You don’t wanna do anything. So I don’t watch the news. If it’s important enough, guess what. My team, someone, will tell me. I’ll eventually find out. But most of the time I don’t what is going on.
I focus on what I do. I wanna protect this, protect my filter. I’m very, very careful about how I view the world and how I upgrade my filter. And that’s why Law of Attraction, it works all the time, it works 24/7. You cannot stop it even if you want to. You cannot stop it even if you’re not paying attention to it. So you could choose, you can choose what information you consume every single day. You can choose what you pay attention to, you can choose what channel you watch, you can choose what videos you watch. You have the power to choose.
Strategy number four.
How The Law of Attraction Works: Strategy 4 – Your Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
What you say to yourself becomes your self-fulfilling prophecy. So I wanna ask you a question, I want you to comment below. Share with me one of your goals, maybe two or three of your goals. Go ahead, do that. Sometimes I will hear people share their goals with me and they will say something like this and say, “I want to be successful.” “I want to be successful.” Or, “I want to be a millionaire.” “I wanna be a millionaire, I wanna be a millionaire.” Well, guess what. What you say becomes yourself-fulfilling prophecy.
When you say that enough, guess what? You will get very, very good that wanting, wanting to be successful. Think of the universe, think of the universe as kind of like a person that you are telling the universe, “Hey, I want to be successful, I wanna be a millionaire.” The universe is like, “Great, your wish is my command.” And the universe is like, “Okay, I’ll grant your wishes.”
So guess what, your whole life you’re wanting and wanting and wanting and not having. And then you keep asking the universe, the universe is like, “What the heck do you want? “I already give you what you want. “You said you want it, I just give you, “You don’t say you are, you just said you want.” Change your vocabulary. I am successful, not I want to be. I am a great salesperson.
Say What You Are and Not What you want
I am a great entrepreneur. I’m a great father. A great son. I’m a great husband. A great wife. I’m a great daughter. I am a millionaire. “Dan, are you saying that I go out there “and even though I’m struggling, “am I lying to people that say I’m a millionaire?” No, this is not an external communication, it is internal communication, what you say to yourself all the time in your mind.
Can you see yourself being that? Are your habits, your behaviors, your actions, are they congruent with who you are? I talk about this. I said you cannot be a millionaire with $50,000 a year habit, period. It’s incongruent. You first need to see yourself being that person first before you will get the results, not get the results first, oh then I’ll see myself doing that. If once I get a million dollars, then I’ll see myself as a millionaire.
Remember, the universe heard you and what you want is on its way to you.
