If you had asked me what I wanted a few years ago, I would have fumbled around for an answer and come up with that I wanted more money and more success and to feel excited about my life. But if you had asked me to get specific, I would have been flustered.
For me, it was a couple of things…
- I knew there was MUCH MORE for me, but I couldn’t quite put a finger on what it was.
- I was terrified to try to define it, because I didn’t want to attract the wrong thing.
I was never one of those people that thought the Law of Attraction doesn’t work. In fact, I always had complete faith that it works and that is what froze me at times, because I didn’t want to put the power of the law of attraction into manifesting something that I didn’t really want or worse, thought I wanted because I was feeling fearful and desperate.
And because I didn’t get specific, I attracted a whole bunch of things that fit my general requests, but they were never quite right.
For example…in 2 weeks time, I went from making less than $1000/month (in New York City…YIKES) to making OVER $5000/month. BUT…once the excitement wore off, I realized I was making money doing something that I didn’t want to do.
I adjusted, got specific and started attracting what I DID want and this taught me that you can always adjust your focus and change what you are attracting.
The moral of the story is that it is better to get specific and use the power of the Law of Attraction to attract what you are focusing on and then, if you need to, redefine your focus as you discover more of what you want…than it is to float around generally attracting things that are ‘kind of’ what you want.
Here’s the key…
It doesn’t matter why you are having trouble getting specific…
What matters is that you have a tool to help you GET SPECIFIC!
Here’s an exercise to do just that:
Grab 2 pieces of paper and a timer.
Put the timer on for 5 minutes.
In single sentences, write down everything that YOU DO NOT WANT.
Write it all down…all the things that drive you crazy about your life…everything you DON’T want to define you…EVERYTHING…
DO IT NOW…and then come back.
OK…now look at the list of awfulness and take each sentence and on another piece of paper write down the opposite.
For instance, if you wrote, “I don’t want to be poor” then you would write on the other piece of paper “I want to be rich”.
NOW this is the Law of Attraction Key we talked about last time…YOU MUST write down specifics of what being rich is to you.
Don’t skip this part of the exercise. I know it might seem like a lot…but ask yourself if you’re ready to start using the Law of Attraction to work for you…and if the answer is ‘Yes’ then take the time to do this and get specific…trust me…it’s worth it.
