In 2006, the film The Secret was released. This movie was astonishing. The premise of the film asserts that an individual has the power to control their destiny and manifest their own success through the power of visualization and intentional thoughts. The Secret argues that we are the ultimate creators of our own lives, our success, and our destinies.
The Secret cites the Law of Attraction to support its premise. The Law of Attraction declares that individual thoughts and feelings attract and manifest specific events and experiences in our lives. This idea directly gives the power to create the life you desire squarely in your hands.
Now, this may seem outlandish or just another piece of good juju. We all have a healthy dose of skepticism that prompts us to question the unfamiliar. But hang in there with me!
A number of notable figures buy into the Law of Attraction. Coach and Best Selling Author Jack Canfield says,
“What you think about, talk about, believe strongly about, feel intensely about, you will bring into your life.”
If you are willing to tap into your imagination, dream your big dreams, navigate life as if those dreams are coming true, and take actions in the direction of your dreams, you can make your dreams a reality.
Comedian and Actor Jim Carrey discussed using the Law of Attraction and Visualizing with Oprah Winfrey. He explained how he would drive to Mulholland Drive each night in his old beat-up car that was also living in. He would park it in front of the million-dollar mansions and tell himself that he would live in one of those houses someday because he was going to become a highly paid comedian.
Jim Carrey also wrote a $10 million check to himself, post-dated it five years, and carried it around in his wallet. At the time, he was barely making a living as a struggling actor.
I started using the Law of Attraction about 17 years ago. In a twist of fate, I had a book placed in my hands that taught me all about the Law of Attraction and the power I hold within myself. While using the process of visualizing my dreams, I found myself attracting success after success into my life.
I went from living paycheck to paycheck to becoming a multiple 6 figure earner.
I went from a toxic relationship to a fulfilling marriage, most of the time.
I went from credit card debt to multiple savings accounts, retirements, investments, etc.
I went from a job that sucked my soul at times to launching two businesses.
This list might seem small and these events could easily be attributed to putting my nose to the grindstone. I was a struggling mom living paycheck to paycheck. I truly believe that I was able to harness the power of the Law of Attraction. I have been able to learn how to create a vision for my life and that vision has come to life in the most fantastic ways. You too can create your vision for your life, harness the power of The Law of Attraction, and live the life you truly deserve! Just ask Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Degeneres, and Larry King.
