Attitude & Mindset: law of attraction

To better understand the Law of Attraction, see yourself as a magnet attracting unto you the essence of that which you are thinking and feeling. And so, if you are feeling fat, you cannot attract thin. If you feel poor, you cannot attract prosperity, and so on. It defies Law.

Feeling good

According to Law of Attraction, nothing is more important than to feel good.

Because when you feel good, you attract more good feelings—and more good things—into your life. You attract more of what you want.

The opposite is true too. When you feel bad, you attract more of those negative emotions into your life. Along with stuff you don’t want.

So when you feel frustrated, pessimistic, disappointed, worried, angry, powerless, or fearful, you attract more situations into your life to be frustrated, pessimistic, disappointed, worried, angry, powerless, and fearful about.

In other words: The better it gets, the better it gets and the worse it gets, the worse it gets.

Postponing joy

But some of you reading this right now don’t think you have a right to feel good. Or you’re waiting to put all the pieces in place (get the promotion, lose 20 pounds, find a mate) before you’re allowed to feel good.

That’s because you have it reversed.

You think you’ll feel good when you lose 20 pounds. But it’s by feeling good now—by making joy a priority now—that attracts what you want into your life.

Like attracts like

Law of Attraction says that which is like unto itself is drawn.

This means when you experience emotions on the positive end of the emotional scale—joy, empowerment, freedom, love, appreciation, enthusiasm, happiness, positive expectation, optimism—you attract more and more of these high-vibe feelings into your life.

Joy begets more joy. And more joyful circumstances.
Appreciation begets appreciation. And more things to appreciate.

Including the job promotion, weight loss, and a great relationship.

All good things are waiting for you. Feeling good is the way to them.
