Throughout the ages there has always been a class of people that seem to excel above the rest. They prosper while the rest barely get by. It seems almost as if they have a magical power to attract all that is good.
In our modern times, these are the people that effortlessly make the most money, enjoy vibrant health, live in the finest homes, and drive the most luxurious cars.
Consciously or unconsciously, they employ a natural, infallible law. Some call this natural law the law of sowing and reaping, others call it the law of attraction. To those that recognize the principles, and align their thoughts and their actions properly, the law of attraction can be the master key to wealth, success, health, and happiness. This article will look into how the law of attraction can by aligned for network marketing success, specifically, prospecting.
Defining the law
The law of attraction says that like attracts like. This law is set in motion and activated by the thoughts held in the mind. Any predominant thoughts held in the mind that are ignited with strong feelings, will invoke the attraction of that which is being focused on.
In other words, by consciously focusing on exactly what we want, and mixing strong emotions to these thoughts, we begin the process of attracting the people, situations, and things needed for the accomplishment of our ultimate goal.
This law is a law of nature. It is working in our lives every day. Our only real choice concerning the law of attraction is whether we will direct our thoughts, thereby deliberately attracting the exact things we want, or whether we will allow our thoughts to run uncontrolled, allowing the law of attraction to operate by default.
Knowledge of this law places you in a unique position to bring into reality all the goals you desire. However, the law of attraction is a double edge sword. It doesn’t differentiate between good or bad, success or failure. It simply attracts to you whatever dominant thoughts you are holding in your mind, period.
The need for action
Although the hit movie the “The Secret” helped to introduce the law of attraction to the world, many people were left with the idea that if you think long and hard enough, things will magically appear in your life. The reality is that the law of attraction is a mental law, but in order for it’s entire power to be set in motion, you need to be set in motion yourself. What does that mean? That means that just focusing on the things you want, without taking any actions toward achieving your objective, won’ t produce results. You need to be focused on an outcome, and you need to be moving toward that outcome.
How to use the law of attraction for Network Marketing Success
Clarity is power. Charles F. Haanel, one of the first authors to write about the law of attraction (The Master Key System Circa 1908), made a very interesting statement. He said, “Scattered thoughts lead to scattered results.” As a network marketer, who is your ideal prospect?
If you are marketing a weight loss product, you might initially think it’s people who are overweight. But can we get even more clarity? How about people that are overweight and are determined to get in shape? How about people that are overweight, are determined to lose weight, and make money? How about people that are overweight, are determined to get in shape, and have the vision that they eventually will be carrying their own before and after pictures to promote the product that helped them change their body and their lives? Can you see how that is much clearer than just “overweight people?”
If your intention was to attract overweight people, you may very well attract them, but are they the people you can build a solid residual income from? If instead you set the intention to attract, overweight people that are determined to get in shape, and had the vision to eventually show people their before and after pictures, as they shared with the world the product and business that changed their lives, can you see how much more powerful that would be? Yes, clarity is power!
Once you get clear on what you really want to attract in to your business, you create a plan as to how you can accomplish each of your objectives, and immediately get to work. Understand that the plans don’t need to be perfect. Perfection many times halts progress. Make a basic plan and launch into action. What you will find is that many of the initial plans you outline may or may not work, but if you keep your clear intention in mind, and you stay busy working toward your goals, magical things will happen. The exact prospects that you are seeking will begin to appear in your life. It’s as if the Universe is conspiring for your success.
The Network Marketing Success dream killer
Many people begin a business with super-charged excitement. They are filled with hope and a grand vision of the future. But once they bang their heads with the smallest obstacle, the dream killer is let loose… DOUBT.
Doubt insidiously begins taking over the thought process. Slowly, but surely, doubt grows and fear unleashes it’s devastating power. This is when fixating on your clearly defined goals will prove it’s true value to you. Too many people allow doubt to settle in the mind. They replace clearly defined goals with doubt, and it’s downhill from there.
Just as thoughts and feelings invoke the law of attraction, doubt and fear also carry the same power. You can doubt nothing or fear nothing unless you give it your mental energy. To doubt or fear you must place your focus on what it is you doubt and fear. By so doing, you are invoking the law of attraction. You are drawing to yourself those exact things by giving your mental energy to them.
Therefore, it is of supreme importance that we maintain our mind occupied with a single purpose, and keep yourself busy working. Focus as much as possible on the things that you want. The mind can only hold one thought at a time. If the fear of failure enters the mind, immediately replace it with the crystal clear picture of success. If the mind is drawn to notice poverty, eradicate the thought by focusing on abundance.
This very second you have the ability to instantly begin invoking the power of this amazing law. Eliminate doubt entirely. Cast away fear. Create your own positive mental obsession by focusing entirely on your ideal and ultimate outcome.
Set the law of attraction in motion by directing your thoughts, and keeping yourself busy working your plan. I challenge you to try it. Take time to make a list of the EXACT things you want to attract into your business. Then focus on your goals as if you had blinders on, and put your heart and soul into the work. You will soon see the Universe open up to bring you unimagined success in business and in life.
Remember, “It’s your time to shine!”
