555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 11.
Time Awake: 11:04 a.m.
Today’s entry is directly influenced by a video I watched by speakifier Gary Vaynerchuk. In the video, he spoke about the Law of Attraction.
So what is the Law of Attraction? Essentially, you bring to yourself what you think about. So if you are a negative thinking person, you bring all the negative stuff to yourself. And if you are a positive thinking person, you bring positive things to yourself.
Great! So if I think I want lots of money, all I have to do is think about having lots of money. Or, if I want a yacht, all I have to do is think about having a yacht.
That’s not how the Law of Attraction works. The thinking process is only part of the process. Action is the other, necessary, part of it.
If you want lots of money, you make decisions for employment and creativity that will bring you money. If you want a yacht — and I don’t know why you’d want a yacht — you work appropriately to earn in order to afford that thing.
If you want the right kind of relationship for yourself — be it romantic or friendship — you seek out the kind of people you want in your Life. And — more difficult — you improve yourself as a person in order to bring the right kind of people to you.
In the process of doing all of this, the results are utterly satisfying.
Do the work. Do the work. My step-dad always said that. Do the work.
