A Practical Guide to Capitalizing on The Law of Attraction for Project Success

By Tricia Molloy

You may have read about The Law of Attraction in the best-seller The Secret or heard about it on The Oprah Winfrey Show. It’s an ancient concept that’s often misunderstood. Let me simplify it.

Watch Your Vibrations
We are all vibrational energy beings and we vibrate at different levels at different times. Vibrations is just another word for feelings and emotions—our attitude. When we feel appreciated and are taking good care of ourselves, we will vibrate at a high, positive, constructive level. When we are burned out, stressed out, in fear, worried and feel unappreciated, we will vibrate at a low, negative, destructive level. Since energy attracts like energy, we will attract people and circumstances that are our vibrational match.

When it comes to ensuring the success of your projects, it’s essential that you maintain a high vibration—a positive attitude—to attract and lead other high-vibration people.  So, how do you do that? Start with self care. Exercise, eat right, get enough sleep and take time to relax and recharge. Smile more. Use humor to defuse stress and make your messages more memorable. Spend time with other positive people and, just as important, avoid the time-wasting, energy-draining negative people.

Ask for What You Want
Now that your vibrations are high, it’s time to set your intention for a successful project. First, ask for what you want and the people and resources to make it happen. Then, use universal principles to keep you positive, focused and productive. Use affirmations on your own and as a team like, “We have all the time and resources we need to complete this project on time and within budget.” Visualize the smooth process of your project. Consider using a vision board kept in a common area to illustrate what the project will look like at completion and the benefits it will bring. Take time to celebrate and give thanks for the successes along the way. Publicly recognize those who put in the extra effort, as well as those who took a risk and failed so you can encourage more innovative thinking. Finally, expect success.

It All Begins with Your Thoughts
One of my favorite quotes from The Secret is “Your mind is your garden. Your thoughts are your seeds. You can plant flowers or you can plant weeds.” What you think, feel, say to yourself and others, and believe to be true creates your reality. By capitalizing on The Law of Attraction as you plan and execute your projects, you can create your reality by design and not default.

    Wonderful article on how to simplify the Law of Attraction. My goal is to do the same for my audiences. Too cosmic for many, until it is broken into easier-to-understand actions.

    Well done!
