Last week I blogged about Law of Attraction - but many people can misunderstand what the Law of Attraction is all about.
They think that all they have to do to create the life of their dreams is visualize what they want – and everything they desire will just naturally flow to them.
That’s not exactly how it works…
There’s something missing from this equation - and without it, no matter how much time and effort you put into visualising your success, all you will ever be is a person with a dream.
In order to unleash the power of the Law of Attraction and make your dreams come true, there’s one key ingredient you absolutely must integrate into your life: ACTION.
That’s right – once you have done the important inner work necessary to get clear on what you really want in life, you have to take ACTION - and take all of the steps required to make your vision a reality.
If you want to achieve real and lasting success, creating balance between your inner and outer journey is essential.
To help you on your journey, here are four steps you can take to move into action:
1. Develop a strategic action plan
By creating a detailed list of every step you’ll need to take to achieve your goals, you’ll find it easier to move into action. You won’t waste time wondering what to do – because it will be clearly laid out before you.
2. Follow the trail
If you’re not sure which steps you need to take to achieve your goals, follow what others have done! After all, other people have already blazed the trail ahead of you and achieved the exact same goals that you want to achieve.
So if you want to shorten your learning curve, do some research and discover who these people are. Read their books and stories, watch their videos, listen to their webinars, and talk to them personally, if you can to find out what steps they took to achieve success.
Then follow their lead, it’s that simple.
3. Involve others
If you’ve developed a habit of spending too much time on your inner journey, a great way to pull yourself back into the outer world is to get an accountability partner. Sharing your specific commitments with another person is a powerful way to ensure that you follow through on the actions you need to take.
You and your accountability partner can chat daily on the phone to share your commitments with each other and report on your success in achieving the previous day’s commitments.
Or, if you feel a need for even greater accountability, you might want to get a professional business or life coach. A good coach can also help you explore
what might be fuelling your actions when you don’t keep your commitments, so you can overcome the limiting behaviors that are holding you back.
4. Check your beliefs
Many of us have beliefs that limit our success - including beliefs about our ability to take action, our capabilities, and what it takes to succeed. Take time to identify any negative beliefs you might have. If you find yourself running up against beliefs such as, “I’m not smart enough,” “I’m too busy,” “I don’t have the proper training,” or “It is going to take too long and be too challenging,”
So what if you’re afraid? So what if it’s expensive? So what if you’ve never done it before? So what if you don’t have all the information? Do it anyway, because once you take action, you’ll get feedback, and feedback tells you how to do it better.
Remember, the last six letters in the word “attraction” are “action.”
If you want to achieve results. You must also take action!
