Sometimes the things we go through in life are actually quite simple. It’s the circumstances that we are exposed to that make us retract and hold back on what we as professionals want to achieve and strive for. The ultimate fear of failure and “what ifs” are the factors that usually keep us from bringing out the best in both our careers as well as our everyday lives.
Enter, the law of attraction.
A very easy concept to understand yet it holds a much deeper and more powerful meaning when applied to everything we do. Here’s an example, instead of thinking “What if I proceed with a business decision and it leads to catastrophic failure?”, how about “This decision might not be an easy one, but if I follow through and play my cards right, it will yield great success!”.
When we approach things with a positive mindset, we become more confident with our strengths and tackle challenges more constructively. Same goes if we do the opposite, negativity seeps in. This is the gist of what is known as the law of attraction. Like a magnet, we attract outcomes based on our mindset.
This week, I would like to share 3 articles that allow us to dive deeper and gain more understanding of what law of attraction is and why we should apply it into our professional lives.
The universe works in a somewhat “magical” way. Often times, we wonder why certain things react the way it does. By accepting things the way it is and instead of taking control of what we have in front of us, we can obtain a clearer understanding of what we should or should not do when faced with adversity or hardship.
The golden ticket theory. Is it true that when we get something we want in life, be it a dream job or a successful pitch, it is an act of fate and we are just lucky? More often than not, we are the ones who actually ‘manifest’ them. So we should give ourselves credit for our winnings and at the same time, notice that we are the product of our triumph.
The law of attraction is a very real phenomenon when job seeking comes into play. Especially during this pandemic, the experience becomes prevalent and the sooner we notice it, the better we utilize and use it to our advantage. Using the demography and job scene of Malaysia as an example, this article uncovers how the law of attraction affects the industry. We can surely take away a thing or two from this study.
A bonus video for everyone this week. This short clip explains the topic at hand in such a simple and digestible way everybody can understand and embrace its full potential. The examples given are precise and can be applied to every professional out there, no matter the industry.
With everything that has been going on around us, I feel that this is the best time to seize the opportunity and practice the law of attraction to the best of our ability. It has worked wonders for me, I hope it does for you as well, even better perhaps. Enjoy your weekend and stay positive!
