Welcome back to the current issue of the Law of Attraction Key Newsletter!
2011 is coming to an end and amidst all the holiday hustle and bustle, I know many of you are thinking about all the possibilities of what 2012 can hold for you.
This is a time of year when people starting thinking about what they desire and everything that they want their life to be. And, because there is a whole NEW year in front of them, there is that feeling that maybe, just maybe, it is all possible.
Well, you know me well enough to know that I absolutely believe that EVERYTHING is possible when you BELIEVE that it is possible. And that is where most people hit a bump in the road – just because you want something doesn’t mean you believe you can have it.
The key is taking your current belief sets and growing them – 1 step at a time. There is a bravery in being willing to take the small steps in order to grow your belief sets – and I promise you, that bravery will be rewarded with unstoppable momentum.
I’ve brought in my good friend and colleague Richard Luck to help you grow your belief sets – he shows you how through an amazing and simple story – when you finish reading what he has to say, you will be able to immediately put into place what he suggests – it’s that powerful!

You are helping me make sure this newsletter serves YOU and you are helping everyone else who may share in what you are currently experiencing on your journey! You’ll find a link at the bottom of each issue that leads you to our site to leave your comments and feedback – I encourage you to do so and share your voice!
Ok, let’s get started – I hope you enjoy this issue!
Life Mastery Is Yours!
“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.”
— Louisa May Alcott
Do you really “believe” that it’s possible to have anything you want?
by Richard A. Luck
Hmm, big question, isn’t it? But, whichever way you answered, I believe this short story is about to help you on that journey…
In the Australian winter of 2011, I took 4 of my friends skiing.
They were great skiers, but they had hit one of those invisible “barriers” that prevented them from taking their skiing to the next level.
The thing is, they knew that I had already pushed through the same “barrier” that they were struggling with, and they wanted me to help them do the same.
I already knew that it wasn’t their actual skill or ability holding them back, it was their beliefs about their ability that was getting in their way.
You see, when you’re standing at the top of a “double black” run that has a sign saying “A fall in this area may result in your death”, it’s your belief in your ability that will allow you to ski that run, no matter how skilled a skier you are. Without that belief, you just won’t ski that run..
Now, I’m not saying that “skill” isn’t very important, but what I am saying is, training your self belief is even more important.
It’s like there’s a sliding scale of “self belief” that determines the results you achieve. The better you want to be, the more important it becomes for you to believe you can be exceptional.
And this applies to all areas of your life.
For instance, if you wanted to create abundant wealth for yourself, then “holding the belief” that you can achieve abundant wealth is even more important than having the actual skill to do it.
And again, just for clarity, that doesn’t mean you don’t need any skill, because the skill is still extremely important, but what it does mean is, your belief in your ability is even more important than the skill.
Skill can always be learned. And when you have the right belief in yourself, you will attract the right people to teach you the skills that you need. Just like my skiing buddies had attracted the lesson they needed into their life!
But training your belief is something that’s often overlooked by many people. They will train their skills and pay little (or no) attention to training their beliefs about their ability to implement those skills.
Olympic athletes not only have coaches to train their skills, but they also have coaches to train their mindset. That’s how important they believe it is.
It’s just like when I was helping my friends push through their barrier. I knew beyond any doubt each of them had the skill that they needed to ski one of the toughest runs in Australia that day.
But I also knew that if I took them to the top of the toughest run, none of them would ski down it, because they didn’t believe that they could.
So, an obvious question is, “How do you train yourself to believe that you can do anything you put your mind to?”
Well, here’s what I taught my skiing friends that day, and it’s a simple technique that worked very well for them, and it will work very well for you as well (and not just in skiing, but in every area of your life).
Each run we skied during the day was marginally harder than the previous. So I slowly pushed them through many smaller barriers, rather than attempting the one big one. By the end of the day, they all believed they could ski the double black, and they did ski it with me!
You see, by taking many small steps, you’re pushing yourself just outside your comfort zone a little bit at a time. And with each step, comes a new improved confidence and self belief that allows you to take the next step, and as you move forward you gain momentum, which builds to “unstoppableness” 🙂
On the other hand, if you sit and contemplate the enormity of the total task, it’s more likely that you’ll never ski that run or take any steps towards it.
When faced with what feels like a huge challenge, for instance like becoming abundantly wealthy, its better to take slow small steps towards the goal, than none at all.
I hope that’s given you some food for thought, and, I’d love to hear your story about any huge challenges you’ve overcome in your life, and how you did it.
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|One of the best ways to grow our belief sets is by moving the target closer. Let’s say you have a big target (like an archery target) and this target encompasses the great, ultimate vision you have for your life. That’s great – but chances are good that the target is so far off in the distance and feels so foreign to you that you can’t even see it clearly. So what do you do?MOVE THE TARGET CLOSER! Ask yourself this – “What is the next level from where I am right now – that would make me know I am moving toward my target but that I KNOW I can achieve?” Whatever your answer is – ask yourself these questions:
“Do I REALLY believe I can achieve this level?”
Once you have found a next level that you truly believe you can achieve – then you have successfully moved the target closer – keep repeating this process and your momentum will be incredible – and you will achieve that great, ultimate target sooner than you ever believed possible!
