In this article, you are going to learn all about the law of attraction.
More specifically, you are going to learn how to leverage the law of attraction to create the life and/or business of your dreams.
Most people who talk about this topic only understand two of the three vital components required to make it work!!!
So in this article, we are going to actually go over all three of these components, and you will learn how all three of these pieces work together to ultimately put you in a position to create the life you want for yourself.
Getting Started: How I Learned About The Law Of Attraction
Back when I was in my 20s, I was on a crash-course to creating a life that I did not love.
I was attracting all kinds of problems. My relationships were constantly failing, all in very similar fashions.
My banking situation was a mess.
I was constantly bouncing checks, overdrafting my accounts, and flying by the seat of my pants when the time came to pay rent.
There were all kinds of negative vibrations going on in my life!
But It Started Changing
Thankfully, I didn’t stay on that path forever. After several wake-up calls, I began an internal journey.
I started reading books. One of the best books that I read during that time was the classic book of success by Napoleon Hill… Think And Grow Rich.
I watched The Secret, a DVD about the law of attraction, (free to stream for Prime members) and even read The Law Of Attraction by Abraham Hicks!
Another great book I read during this time was The Science Of Getting Rich, by Wallace D. Wattles (free to read here, and free to listen to on YouTube here) and the Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks.
I essentially cut myself off from the outer world for about two years, and put some time into untying, or kind of ‘unlacing’ myself from all of the messy connections that I had formulated in my head.
I had to start thinking about life in a new way. I had to get myself onto the path of creating the reality that I actually wanted in my life.
But even after this ‘wakeup call,’ it took me 5 or 10 years to really figure out where to go and how to build that life that I wanted.
Today, my life is magical. But that didn’t happen by accident. It only happened because I made it happen.
I make more money now than I ever imagined I would. I have loftier goals than I ever thought possible. I have attracted the love of my life into my life. I have lived, and continue to live, in some amazing places.
But I literally had to design this life for myself. And I did it using the Law of Attraction.
Law of Attraction - The Three Fundamental Variables
The Law of Attraction consists of three fundamental variables that you must have control over if you want to manifest the ideal reality for yourself. Let’s take a quick, closer look at exactly what these variables are.
1… Your Thoughts
This is the most important place to start. This is the number-one thing that I was getting wrong when I was younger.
This is what all of those books helped me to sort out. I had to get my thoughts in order. I had to figure out how to think about things in the correct order.
2… Your Vibrations
This is your emotional state of being. This is the part of the equation that dictates your feelings.
3… Your ‘Will’ Center
Your ‘will center’ dictates the actions that you take.
It is the things you do. It is the decisions you execute on and pursue.
Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions
As you can see, these variables basically add up to ‘thoughts, feelings, and actions.’
You have the thoughts you think in your mind, the vibrations you embrace and embody, and the actions you perform upon the world.
Most Teachings Fall Really Short of This
To correctly embrace the Law of Attraction, you must embrace all three of these variables.
Granted, most teachings fall very short of this.
Most teachings give you generic advice about loving yourself and manifesting your destiny. But there is actually a lot to this that the alleged ‘gurus’ aren’t telling you. So let’s go over the basics of the entire thing.
Books Helped Me A Lot With This
As I said before, I read some great books to help me figure this out.
The Law of Attraction is not rocket science, and it is not a ‘new’ concept.
But there is a lot of misinformation about it online.
It is not a ‘get rich quick’ mentality. I had to do real research, and figure out where I was going wrong.
Once I figured it out, I was able to start changing the way I was thinking, feeling, and living. And once I changed those things, I started to attract abundance, happiness, and success.
Nothing Comes For Free
Before we get too in-depth with this, I feel like it is very important for you to understand that nothing comes for free.
I did not ‘get rich’ by easily changing a few things. I had to work hard to achieve what I have achieved.
If you think anyone has built a successful life without working for it, you are sorely mistaken!
It takes true work and action to produce results. But in order to know what actions to take, you also have to align your thoughts and feelings with the correct way of thinking.
That is what the Law of Attraction is all about!
Action Is The Key
If you want to create the kind of lifestyle and income that you truly want in life, then you need to put in an incredible amount of action.
This is a part that a lot of people miss.
I still put in 14 hour days, building cash flow systems and business systems to help me actualize my goals and plans for myself. I work on building my teams, improving my systems, etc.
This is how I forge my destiny and build the kind of life I want to have in the future.
So, the main thing we need to do is delve deeper into each one of these different variables. Yes, we have talked about the basics and what they are… but in order to understand exactly how they function, we need to go in deep and back-engineer how the Law of Attraction actually works.
All of these variables work together if you use them correctly. There is a oneness that comes out of living within all three variables consistently, within the right alignment.
On the flipside, if you are NOT in alignment, you will not be moving into a very good direction.
If you start to use all three of these variables, and can practice oneness and bring them all into alignment, then you can set yourself up for having the life that you truly dream of having.
When I was in my twenties, I was actually creating a life for myself that I didn’t want.
Because my thoughts, feelings, and actions were not in alignment and working as one.
But once you start to get these things aligned the right way, you will start to notice synchronicities. You will start having chance encounters with significant people. Things will happen out of the blue that will turn your life around!
This is where the doors start to open. But there are a number of steps that you have to go through to get this process moving in the right direction.
Deep Dive On The Three Variables
Let’s get in-depth with the three law of attraction variables, and talk about how to develop each one correctly.
1… It All Starts With Our Thoughts
Our thoughts control our emotions and our actions.
There is a really cool phrase that I’ve heard before, and it is so true!
“If you’ve got stinking thinking, you’re going to be creating all kinds of negative stuff in your world.”
But how do you get your thoughts going in the right direction?
Gratitude is my number-one biggest trick for keeping my thoughts on-track.
Gratitude is one of the most powerful vibrations and thought processes. When you are thinking about an experience that you are grateful for, you are filled with positivity, love, and warmth.
This could be a moment you got to experience, someone you loved, a memory with your kids, etc.
When we consciously think about experiences that we are grateful for, we put ourselves into a state of love and positive vibration.
This is how our thoughts precede our feelings, and this is a powerful thing to understand.
Live With Intention
A lot of people are living their lives in reaction-mode.
They wake up, grab their phone, and look at everything that’s going wrong. They check their email, they look at social media, they look at their to-do list, they look at the drama going on, etc.
They also think about everything that they are going to have to do that day that they don’t want to do.
Did you know that the highest ranking posts on social media tend to be posts that spawn arguments?
Arguments literally boost posts because they involve people commenting back and forth. That is a ton of engagement.
Great for the post. Bad for the positive vibes and good thoughts!
When I was 20, I used to be stuck in reaction-mode. I never lived with intention. I was always living day to day.
I checked my bank account every day. If I happened to have $21 in there, I would think “Ok, I can pull $20 out, but I can’t use an ATM that charges a fee. Where am I going to get money for rent? Blah blah blah.”
It was always about reacting and surviving. It was never about getting ahead and thriving.
But you see, I also fed into this. I got to the point where I would keep checking my bank account, stressing over the money that wasn’t in it. This decision, then, kept putting me back into that survival, reaction-mode mindset.
That was my vibration. I didn’t have enough, I dwelled on that, so that is what came to me.
I was stuck in a scarcity mindset.
I was stuck in a cycle.
Recognize The Good Things That Are Happening
Interestingly enough, during those years when I was obsessing over my empty bank account, a lot of great things were happening that didn’t get my attention.
I had a car that would start every day. I had a job that paid me enough. I had shoes, and pants, and clothes, food on the table, great friends, etc.
I was living 23 blocks from the beach!
I was able to walk to the beach and enjoy that wonderful ocean-front environment (which is one of my favorite types of environments).
See, there was no shortage of good things going on in my life. The problem was what I chose to focus on. I was choosing to focus only on the negative, when there were actually so many incredible positive things happening all around me.
And when I made that shift, and started to focus on the positive, that is when my life really started to head in a better direction.
Stop Living In The Past
Another thing that we often do is live in the past.
Our bodies do not actually know if we are living in the past, present, or future.
So if you spend all of your time thinking about the past, your body is going to fire, release hormones, and perform as if you are living back in that situation.
Sure, you can keep looking back into the past and reliving those bad situations. Or, you can focus on what is happening around you now, focus on the positive, and start creating that positive alignment in the way you think.
Your body will follow your mind. That is why you have to get your thoughts right first. Then, positive feelings follow. And then, your actions complete the alignment.
2… Your Vibrations Have Power in Your Life
I want you to try something. I want you to imagine the perfect life that you want to live one day.
I want you to imagine owning that beautiful house you want to own. Imagine having that mountain view, that beach-front property, that business you’ve always dreamed of, that relationship you’ve always wanted, etc.
Then, I want you to start putting real mental energy into visualizing it. If you are an artist, draw it. If you are a writer, write about it. If you keep a journal, journal about it. Get really specific about the types of life experiences that you want.
These are positive thoughts. These are thoughts that can help you to shape your future. But before you can shape your future, all of your thoughts, feelings, and actions must align.
And to do that, you must let your thoughts set the tone for your feelings.
This is how you raise your vibration.
How do you do it? Let’s talk about that.
Past, Present, and Future
There are three different ways to use your thoughts.
You can focus on the past. You can focus on your environment now, today. And, you can focus on your thoughts about the future.
But as you think about all of these things, you need to weave gratitude into the mix.
So when you do think of the past, think about the great things that happened. Don’t dwell on those painful memories. Don’t be sad about that thing that didn’t happen!
Instead, focus on the great times you had, and be grateful for them.
The same goes for the present. Weave gratitude throughout your thoughts for the present. Don’t dwell on what is going wrong. Instead, dwell on what is going right!
The future is no different. Don’t dread or fear what could go wrong. Intead, plan and focus on your goals. Focus on the amazing life you are planning for yourself. Be wise and strategize, but also be fully committed to the positive things on a day-by-day basis.
Your Thoughts Affect Your Vibrations
There is a very good reason for focusing on the positives.
When you focus on the positive, your vibrations and feelings get more positive as well.
But at the same time, as your vibrations increase, your thoughts will also become more positive.
And that is what alignment is! When these two things begin to align, you will start a positive cycle that will create all kinds of positivity while also squashing and banishing fear and negative thoughts.
This is an essential part of the Law of Attraction.
The Perfect Day Exercise
One of my favorite exercises is the ‘Perfect Day’ exercise.
In this exercise, you write down what your perfect, most ideal day would be.
Do you want to drink coffee? Write that down. Do you want to lay on the beach? Write that down. Do you want to have a beautiful house that you wake up and live in? Write that down.
Whatever the perfect day looks like for you, write it down. Be as detailed as possible.
Of course, this may change as you grow… but the point here is to get focused on the good things.
This will get your vibrations and your thoughts aligned toward the future in a positive way, and that is extremely powerful.
Ingest Positive Thoughts From Books, Videos, And Podcasts
Putting positive and motivational thoughts into your mind is just as important as putting healthy foods into your body!
You need to do it!
There are a ton of older motivational audio books to be found for free online.
The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, by Joseph Murphy, is just one example of a book that you can get online for free. You can download this audio book for free, listen to it on YouTube, etc.
You can get a library card and borrow awesome books from the library.
You can get online and listen to some motivational podcasts, etc.
Take the time to feed your mind. This will help to raise your vibrations. As your mind grows more positive, your feelings will follow… and you will start to feel and experience that alignment.
3… Your Actions Manifest Your Destiny
Back when I started to learn about the Law of Attraction, I actually really misunderstood it. I thought that the entire point of it was to act like who I wanted to be in the future.
This is a small part of it… but I still didn’t get it right.
So what I did was this. I wanted to be a millionaire, so I would go out with a friend of mine from college. We would go out on the town, exploring our hip little neighborhood, and have what I called ‘millionaire days.’
We would eat lunch, we would have a few beers, I would shop a little bit… and I would spend so much money!
I figured that as a millionaire, that would be the point of everything. So that was how I lived.
But little did I know, these actions were actually reinforcing that ‘feeling of lack’ that was keeping me down. Instead of saving that money and gaining control over my finances, I would spend my money and be back down to nothing!
Something Had to Change
This kept happening, and kept knocking me back down to where I had started. As it turns out, my actions were not aligned with my thoughts and vibrations. I was not existing in a state of oneness.
But this all started to change when I read the book The Millionaire Next Door, by Thomas J. Stanley & William D. Danko.
I started studying what millionaires and wealthy people actually do with their lives. And the results were much different than I expected.
They were not these lazy people, shopping and spending money carelessly. They were super disciplined. They made wise choices. They were smart.
They weren’t maxing out their credit cards on fancy cars. They were hustling and burning the midnight oil to get ahead in life!
And that is when it started to click. I needed to get my thoughts straight.
Your Thoughts, Your Vibrations, and Your Actions Are All Connected
As I read this book and began to understand the principles, I realized that your mindset, your vibrations, and your actions all had to be on the same page.
It all starts with your thoughts, though. Before an Olympic athlete ever hits the mat, they will go over the routine over and over again in their minds. They prepare themselves mentally. They prepare their mind. They visualize victory.
This is all mental. This sets them up for positive vibrations. They not only think of themselves as champions, but they also feel like champions.
But if this is all they do, they will still fail… because they haven’t blended their actions into the mix.
They need to hit the mat, every day, and practice. They need to hit the gym and work out. They need to show up for training, every day, and go through the motions.
This is when you begin to see actual results.
You get your thoughts straight. This influences your feelings. And that influences your actions. And when they all come together, you manifest that destiny!
There Are Only Two Core Emotions
We can feel many things in our lives. We can feel love, anger, sadness, happiness, elation, euphoria, frustration, thankfulness, apathy, etc. There is no limit to the number of things we can feel.
But when you reduce it all down, you will find that there are actually only two core emotions that humans feel: positive emotions, and negative emotions.
Remember this… that every single thing you feel is going to fit into one of these categories.
So if you want to move in a positive direction, make more money, and manifest a destiny that will make you happier… then all of your thoughts, feelings, and actions must be centered on the positive!
Leveraging The Law of Attraction in Your Life
Now that we have talked about how to use the law of attraction, let’s talk about where to take it from there.
We know that our thoughts, feelings, and actions must align themselves to propel us forward into a positive destiny. We know that we must focus on the positive at all times, and that all three of these variables must be working together to manifest the life we desire.
But there are a few more truths here that are important to understand if you want to fully utilize and embrace the Law of Attraction.
Law of Attraction - You Attract What You Are Vibrating
The law of attraction actually states that “whatever you are vibrating right now is what you are attracting to you.”
And what comes to you is entirely dependent on YOU. The world, the universe, your subconscious mind, your intuition… none of these things judge you for what you attract.
Your thoughts, vibrations, and actions DECIDE what you are going to attract!
My life is much different now that I have my thoughts, feelings, and actions in alignment with the future I want.
Now, I make it a point to stay in a constant state of gratitude. I think great thoughts. Every morning, the first thing I do is plug into a great audiobook to get my thoughts in order.
I walk, I make my coffee, and I get completely prepared for my work.
By the time I get to work, I am already aligning my thoughts, feelings, and actions into a state of oneness. I am totally dedicated to what I am about to do. I feel good about it. Everything is positive.
That is the state of mind I continue to exist in. And as a result… my business has grown to 6-figures, I continue to make my life better, and every day is better than the last!
Love and Gratitude are the Most Powerful Positive Thoughts
We have talked a bit about positive thoughts and positive emotions.
But right now, I want to focus on the two most powerful emotions of all… Love, and gratitude.
The more love and gratitude you can fit into your daily life, the better off you will be.
Instead of hanging onto resentment, anger, frustration, or bitterness, let go of these things and focus on the positive.
Focus on how much you love that person. Be grateful for what you make at that job. Realize that each person in the world has feelings, and love them for that. Realize that your current situation comes with a lot of blessings. Be grateful for those blessings.
The more love and gratitude you can fit into your life, the faster you will find yourself aligning with positivity.
You Live What You Create
Like it or not, your actions have created everything that you are experiencing right now. For better or for worse.
That is the truth.
Every action starts with a thought. Those thoughts give birth to certain feelings. That is your vibration. Then, you take action based on those vibrations… and that lands you where you are.
Your existence today was literally created by your thoughts, your vibrations, and your actions.
That’s it. That is the entire puzzle, all in one neat, organized box!
The simple truth of the matter is that we live in a cause-and-effect universe. There is no denying that. That is the reality, and there is no way around it.
Do you remember when I mentioned synchronicity earlier?
The actual, technical term for synchronicity is:
“The simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.”
This concept was first conceived of, and explored by, Carl Jung... an analytical psychologist.
This is actually a very deep concept that Jung talked a lot about during his career. But we need not understand how synchronicity works to understand the benefit of being aware of it.
How to Embrace Synchronicity in Your Own Life
As you begin to align your thoughts, feelings, and actions toward a state of positivity and purpose, you will also begin to notice ‘positive connected events’ happening, as if purely by chance.
This could be a result of our changing positive mindset. It could be the universe rewarding us for our newfound positivity. It could be that we are becoming ‘awakened’ to the opportunities that have always existed around us.
It could be the result of us ‘opening our eyes’ and escaping the ‘blindness of negativity’ that we have always lived in.
Whatever you believe, there is really no denying that synchronicity is a real thing. And whether it is mystical or not is really irrelevant.
The idea here is that we need to be aware of it. When it happens, we should embrace it, be thankful for it, and be on the lookout for the next ‘event’ in the sequence.
This is a new awareness that can really help us to level-up in our lives. And it is through this ‘leveling up’ that we embrace our destiny.
You Must Decide to Embrace The Law of Attraction
Following the Law of Attraction doesn’t happen by accident. Sure, a few good habits will get you started on the right foot.
But this is a process that requires intentional, consistent action to tap into.
If you think that you can accidentally fall into wealth or happiness, you are unfortunately setting yourself up for a lot of disappointment.
Nothing good in life happens by accident. And even if coincidence does happen to bring something good your way, odds are good that you will just ruin it if you don’t have your thoughts, feelings, and actions in alignment.
When we get stuck in reaction mode, we often ruin the best things that accidentally come our way. That is the nature of our cause-and-effect universe. Nothing is free. Nothing is accidental. Everything is caused by something else.
And the only way to take control of your destiny is to cause your own success through your actions and willpower.
This is probably the number-one best thing that you can ever do.
Just stop complaining!
Complaining is always negative. You are focusing on the bad things, speaking about the bad things, allowing the bad things to influence your energy, etc.
Complaining is the exact opposite of gratitude.
If you have an attitude of gratitude, you will see the problems as opportunities for growth, find the good in the challenges, and figure out how to get past them so that you can live an abundant life on the other side.
You will find hope and joy in your journey, instead of bitterness and frustration.
You will be amazed at what you can accomplish, and how drastically your life will change, if you can make this one simple change to your behavior!
How Do I Start Walking in the Law of Attraction?
So how do you start down this road? How do you start using the Law of Attraction in your own life?
Well, to start with, I would suggest you do two things. There are some books that I would suggest you read, and then there are some actions I would encourage you to take.
Shift From Negative Thoughts to Positive Thoughts
One of the most powerful ways to get started down the path of attracting positive things into your life is to shift your focus from the negative to the positive.
There are a number of ways to do this. One of my favorite methods, personally, has been through books.
Here are some books that you can find really cheaply or free online. You can also borrow these from almost any library. You can even find free audiobooks of them on YouTube in most cases!
- Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
- The Law Of Attraction by Abraham Hicks
- The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles.
- The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy
- The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley & William D. Danko
There are certainly other books out there that can really help you to start figuring this out, but these were some of the most influential books that helped me on my journey… and they really started me down the path of learning what the Law of Attraction was!
But you can also bring more positivity into your life a number of other ways.
You can start spending more time around positive people. You can start plugging positive podcasts and motivational speeches into your ears instead of depressing music. You can start practicing gratitude, every day, no matter where you are.
Gratitude may seem like a cliche and naive thing to embrace if you are used to pessimism. But trust me on this one… it is so powerful! You have no idea how shifting your attitude from negativity to optimism and gratitude can literally transform your life!
The thing about gratitude is that it trains us to look for opportunities in the moment. It also keeps our mind in a state of positive well-being. Your perspective truly is everything.
If you can’t get your perspective to shift over to the positive side, you will never understand what it means to attract good things to yourself through the law of attraction.
Listen to Your Gut Instinct - New Thoughts Will Direct New Intuition
Some people call it intuition, and some people call it a gut instinct. But regardless of what you call it… it is real, and nearly everyone has experienced it.
But here's the thing about your gut instinct. It plays off of what it perceives your desires to be!
And how does it do this? It figures this out by tapping into what you seem the most focused on!
So if you are focused on all kinds of negativity, then your intuition may tell you to get drunk and cry about it!
Whereas, if you focus on positivity, your intuition will find ways to help you rise above that situation and find victory!
That is a pretty big difference, right?
Have you ever had this ‘feeling’ about a situation and ended up being completely right about it? Well, that is your instinct. That is what a ‘gut instinct’ is.
Back when I was younger, when I was first starting my business, I was having a great time. Sure, the work was challenging, but my wife and I were enjoying ourselves. Everything seemed great.
But then, out of nowhere, I had this gut feeling. It just came over me.
“Miles, make a video every day for 90 days.”
I just had this powerful feeling that if I did this, it would change everything for the better.
I listened… and it changed my life. I had this crazy gut instinct that if I did this, it would be good. So I did it.
And you know what? It completely revolutionized everything I was doing! It was amazing!
This life that I am living right now? It ONLY came about because I followed that wild gut instinct that I had.
Of course, this is not the only time I have listened to my intuition. And there were a lot of other things that went into this. But this was one instance where choosing to listen to my instinct made a powerful and profound impact on my future!
I now live a very comfortable, fun life where I make plenty of money and live the way I want. But none of it would have happened if I wouldn’t have…
- Gotten my thoughts straight
- Gotten my feelings and vibrations in order
- Aligned my actions with my thoughts and feelings
- And listened to my gut instinct!
This is a very, very important concept to understand. The reason why you need to develop yourself and then listen to your gut instinct is this…
Your intuition will try to lead you in the direction of the vision of what you want and believe in… it will always lead you in the direction of your current ‘vibration,’ or emotional state.
See, if I only believed in never having money in my bank account, always feeling hopeless, never taking action… then that is where my intuition is going to lead me.
But that’s not what I wanted. I did the personal development work. I got my thoughts, feelings, and actions in-line with what I truly wanted.
And then, my intuition followed, and it started nudging me in the direction of success.
Take Consistent Actions From Your New Place - From Now On!
As you take steps toward positivity, and leave more and more of your old negativity behind, you will find yourself stepping out into a bold, fearless new destiny where literally anything is possible, if you are willing to work for it!
That’s really the main point. You can attract whatever life you want… but you have to be consistent, you must learn to have this true positivity shift inside of you, and you must literally become a powerful source of gratitude and optimism.
And you can’t fake it. The only way to make this work is to truly humble yourself in life, and pursue it.
I will be perfectly honest with you. I believe 100%, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that this is what dictates success for every entrepreneur.
The conversations you have with yourself... these determine your future. Because these conversations control your thoughts, which control your feelings, which control your actions.
If you are constantly living in a mindset of scarcity and you are trying to write blog posts because you feel broke, that blog post is just not going to work long-term.
You must start thinking beyond that scarcity mindset. If you are constantly trying to do things to escape a scarcity situation, you will just keep yourself stuck in it!
This is why I don’t publish content with the thought of ‘making money.’ Instead, you need to focus on creating value and helping people. You also need to think about doing what you love and care about.
This is the kind of thinking that will help you to get your thoughts into a better, more positive mindset.
Yes, I am making a 6-figure income with my business. Yes, I sent out some emails last month and may have made over $10,000 in those emails.
But what you also need to understand is that behind that success is over 1,000 days of filming YouTube videos, publishing blogs, putting together podcasts, answering emails for free that didn’t earn anything, etc.
The entire point of all of this was that I got my thoughts straight. Then, my feelings followed. Then, I started taking positive action. I trusted my gut instinct and made moves with my business that led me here.
But it has taken years. Change doesn’t happen overnight. You can’t get in a hurry. You just need to align yourself with the Law of Attraction, and do what needs to be done today to find that ‘oneness’ within yourself!
You never know where you can go if you will just align yourself and pursue it!
Well, that is it for this one. Leave a comment and let me know what you think, and feel free to ask any questions that may come to mind. I will see you all on the next one!
