The Law of Attraction and Success
Last weekend I took part in a Mind Body Soul event and had a lovely time.
I’d been looking forward to this event for some time as its one of my favourites and I hoped that the visitors to my stand would not only be interested creating a happy life, but also interested in my coaching programme. I felt it was going to be a really successful weekend. Everything was flowing and it was all positive.
Having set up my stand, I pottered round to say hello to the friends I knew and to introduce myself to the people I didn’t. One of the stands had a large wheel of fortune with lots of positive feelings marked on the wheel. I gave it a spin and it stopped at Enthusiasm. That was me – full of enthusiasm about the weekend.
I was given a card with a saying about enthusiasm with a punch line about our attitude to the outcome of events.
And I started to think – you know how I like to ponder. So I got some tea and thought.
And I went back over some basics:
I create my own reality and I create more of what I’m feeling.
I was really pleased and excited about the event and knew it was going to be really good.
I had a good time. Feeling good – expected more good to come.
But —– you knew there had to be a ‘but’ didn’t you, or else why am I writing this?
Only two people asked me about the Law of Attraction, wanting a quick fix. They didn’t seem able to take the responsibility for their lives, so they drifted off.
I was hoping to get some new clients from the event and I didn’t get the outcome I wanted. (Not only didn’t I get any bookings for coaching but no one even asked me about it!)
Does this mean that it wasn’t a successful outcome? Yes – I felt disappointed. That is until I adjusted my thoughts and changed my attitude. I had several in depth conversations with three or four people and I had a lovely response to my new talk on the Soul Connection – the spirituality of the Law of Attraction. The talk was a great success – but overall, was it a success?
A hidden success
No and yes. The No is because I didn’t get any new clients that day.
Did I get what I expected? – obviously, The Law of Attraction always delivers what you expect – but not on a conscious level.
Was the weekend a success? – Yes. I’d had a wonderful time. And the weekend showed me a particular deep seated belief that I need to change.

Feature Photo – Success is a mind-set
The photo is of me climbing Mount Snowdon – my 70th birthday present from my children. Did I get to the top? No. But I got to ‘MY’ top and I was very pleased with my achievement. Success is a mind-set – which by the way generates more success.
Sorry I missed your talk but am really interested in the subject, maybe you could make it the topic for a future blog. Thanks. Christine
Thanks Christine. Good idea – I’ll do that. Have a happy Easter.
I’m still learning to understand about the degree of surprise I feel when I receive something or something happens…if I am not surprised then I know that my belief and expectation is right. If it is hard work to achieve then I know that my beliefs and expectations need working on…and I do need to keep on working!! Judy
Hi Judy. Thank you for your comments. I wouldn’t have used the word ‘surprised’ but its a really good way of looking at it. I think – if you have to do too much; put in too much effort, then there is a belief involved that needs to be released. You know yourself how wonderfully effortless, the most magical creations, manifest.
I’m off to Cumbria within the hour. Have a happy Easter.
How funny. I could have written exactly the same article. Had exactly the same experience. And yes something is stopping my desire. More work to be done.
Hi Cat. How funny and what a coincident. Although we know there are no such things as coincidences! For me the realisation that the belief is there, is the ‘biggest’ release, and then listening to/reading inspirational stuff – reminding me that I’m making it all up and that I have the power of Source at my back and I can be, have and do anything I want. That always helps. Thanks for your comment Cat. Happy creating. Rose
