We hear a lot about Law of Attraction these days. Well, how about a change of pace that may be of immense help to you or someone you know?
It’s called the Law of De-traction. Or the Law of Repelling What You Want. It could also be called Law of Attraction in Reverse. Here’s a common example of how it works:
A few months ago a client sent me an email to tell me he was working hard to create his new business – BUT he was encountering a great deal of frustration. I asked him about the frustration and he said he kept losing clients and money in his existing business – and this was preventing him from moving forward in the new business.
“I keep visualizing myself in my new business and the more I do that the more money I lose in the one I’m in,” he said.
I asked: “And you need the money from the current business to feed the new one, right?”
I said: “Okay, tell me more about the images in your visualization. Tell me exactly what you’re picturing and how.”
He began describing how he was celebrating being out of the old business; retired from it. I cut him off as soon as I heard this.
I said: “Wait just a second. Why are you celebrating being out of the old business? What you want to be doing is celebrating all the money in the current business that allows you to easily move into the new one.”
“Ooooh,” he said. “Never thought of that. So I’m visualizing the wrong thing.”
I said, “That you are.”
I then gave this man many other suggestions on what he needed to be doing to reverse the negative trend he’d started. Two weeks later he and I spoke by phone.
“It’s a miracle,” he said. “I started picturing my current business the way you said and the money is pouring back into it. I had no idea I was driving clients and money away with the image I had. I thought I was doing it right. I thought this was just a phase I had to go through. But I was creating the phase. Now I can easily transition from one business to the other without all the frustration.”
I said: “You’ve removed the resistance, haven’t you?”
“That I have,” he said.
I smiled: “Feels good, doesn’t it?”
“Absolutely,” he said.
In business, in sports, in relationships – in everything we do – we form mental images in our minds and these images lead us in the direction of what we’re picturing. Whether we realize this or not, it IS taking place. Many have come to realize this as true – and they’ve gone to work putting new images into their internal monitor – but their images are flawed in some way – and so, instead of getting the results truly desired, they’re getting results that are lined up with what they are picturing.
The other day I read an email from another client who was thrilled with the positive feedback I sent him on a project. He told me he printed the email and posted it in his office to read during moments of frustration.
I wrote: “Why are you planning on moments of frustration? Why plan on only reading these positive comments at that time? Why not read them daily, first thing, so you’re always nourished with a powerful and positive outlook on life?”
He got the message and began reading my comments each morning. Normally this person experienced deep frustration on an almost daily basis. But after three weeks of reading my words, he rarely encounters it anymore. Why? Because he’s not expecting it. Before he expected frustration and so he got it – A LOT of it. Now he gets something else; something much more positive.
So make sure your mental images are the best you can make them. I’ll work with you on this when you’re a member of the Psycho-Cybernetics Fearless Success Coaching Program. We have our next LIVE meeting on Sunday, May 6, in Tampa. Maybe I’ll see you there.
In the meantime, make sure you see yourself at your best – as a person who attracts success – not as a person who pictures frustration and gets it.
