Welcome to the new issue of Law of Attraction Key!
I have Olympic Fever! I’ll admit, I love watching the events, but I think the true reason I love the Olympics, is because it is the perfect arena for us to see limitless possibility play out right in front of us. Every Olympic Games, something happens that takes something that used to be impossible – and makes it possible.
There is so much to learn – we see what it takes to rise to the occasion and what happens when we don’t. We see, clear as day, that physical talent is essential, but it isn’t enough without the mindset and focus required to handle all of the pressure and distractions and challenges and physical setbacks.
We see what it is to be graceful in both winning and defeat AND we see what it is to be SO much the opposite.
When you watch all of the human interest stories, you realize that most of the greatest athletes have, at one time or another, gotten off track, whether it is in their training, goals, ego or motivation. It happens to the best of us – and there is no better way to learn how to get back on track than by using these exceptional examples to guide us.
I wrote the article this week to help you get back on track – whether you need it now or later – remember, it happens to the best of us, and what matters is that you find your way back.
You are extraordinary and I can’t wait to hear from YOU personally – make sure you leave me a comment at www.lawofattractionkey.com – I’m excited to hear what you have to say and love being able to help you along your journey!
Life Mastery Is Yours!

How to Get ON Your Life Path…
(When you feel like you’ve gotten off track)
By Kristen Howe
Are you struggling to find the answer to any of these questions?
- What do I do when I feel like I’ve gotten off track in my life?
- How do I get back on my life path?
- How do I remember what’s special about me and my path?
If so, you aren’t alone. The personal struggle with the right life path is something most people face at one time or another.
There are 2 important things to realize…
- It is never too late to discover or get back on your life path
- Once you realize you are off track – the time to get back on track is NOW
It’s true that it is never too late – and I want you to always remember that. BUT, I also want you to realize that once you notice you have gone astray, don’t hesitate to get yourself back on track. Remember, there is GREAT power in awareness, use that awareness to create momentum, and you will become unstoppable. So, let’s get to it…
What do you do when you get off track?
Treat yourself like an athlete who has gotten off track in their training, and follow these steps.
1. Remind yourself what you REALLY want: Remember, this can be a specific goal, but what even more important than the goal is the FEELINGS that you attach to achieving that goal.
2. Reinforce every single reason WHY this is important: Write it all down, why is it important to your life, to the lives of the people you love, to the lives of strangers, to the vibration of the Universe, etc. etc. etc.
3. Write a list of your strengths and things you love to do: Be honest, don’t play down your strengths – celebrate them!
Can you imagine if athletes were taught to play down their strengths? Would they ever excel and become the best they could be if they did that? NO WAY! Great athletes become great by maximizing their strengths and to do that starts with acknowledging them.
I’d love to work with you and answer your specific questions, completely risk-free…
4. Write a list of your weaknesses and things you don’t love to do: Be honest, don’t judge yourself, we ALL have weaknesses and in my opinion we are taught to give our weaknesses WAY TOO MUCH POWER. I also want you to make sure you put anything you don’t love to do in this list, and here’s why, even if you are great at doing something, but it doesn’t feed you and you don’t love doing it, then it is a weakness – anything that lacks your passion is a weakness. Anything that has your passion is your strength.
5. Start spending more of your time and energy on your strengths and passions: Whenever you shift the majority of your time and energy and focus to strengthening your strengths, you instantly shift your life back on track.
A quick note on this: When I say strengthen your strengths, that does not mean I want you to ignore your weaknesses. But if you spend most of your time and energy trying to strengthen your weaknesses, you are ignoring the natural talents, abilities and instincts that you were given and that are specific to you and your life path. So the bulk of your attention must go to your strengths. If you are going to focus on your weaknesses, try focusing on discovering someone that has strengths where you are weak and vice versa and seeing how you can assist each other. THAT is a more powerful way to approach your life!
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|If you are trying to discover or re-discover your passion so you can get back on track, try this:
Think about your top 5 favorite things to do when you were a kid. Write them down and write down what it was you loved about doing those things.
For example: Did you love being outside, or love being with animals, or love being with other people. Did you love being in the water, or having time alone to read. Etc.
The key is to pay attention to what made you feel ‘plugged in’ when you were a kid.
Now, I want you to take the top element from that list and decide to spend 1 hour per week minimum incorporating that into your life. So, if you loved being outside, commit to spending 1 hour minimum, from now on – this will start to plug you back into your true essence and THAT will tap you into your passion.
Just remember, you must do this consistently for at least a month, and when you do, you will literally feel yourself being drawn to new instincts. Follow those instincts; they lead to your path of passion and joy!

I never knew it has been lying dormant there before.
