Law of Attraction

December 1, 2008

With Christmas fast approaching, I wanted to pass on some thoughts about giving and receiving gifts, but the gifts I am talking about are not material ones. Rather, they involve what we can give to, and receive from, each other – and ourselves – by paying a little bit more attention to our words, thoughts, and actions.

In November, I had the privilege of traveling to beautiful Victoria B.C. with a dear friend of mine, to participate in a very unique certification program. I attended four days of intensive training with Michael Losier, author of the best selling book “Law of Attraction: The Science of Attracting More of What You Want and Less of What You Don’t”. Michael Losier is a NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) Practitioner and professional speaker. For over 10 years, Michael has given hundreds of presentations via radio and TV, conferences and corporate training sessions about a powerful force that is at work in all of our lives right now.

Michael calls this powerful force the ‘Law of Attraction’ and at this very moment, it is attracting people, customers, situations and relationships into our lives. The problem is, not all of these things are the way we want them to be.Michael teaches a straight-forward, 3-step approach to change that. His approach has become extremely popular and has received much attention over the last several years. This has lead to good news, bad news and more good news.

The ‘first’ good news, for Michael anyway, is that he has been scooped up by Oprah to spread his philosophy on the ‘Oprah and Friends’ radio show. The bad news is this means his availability for personal presentations and training is now very limited. The ‘second” good news is that in order to solve this problem, he has put together a training program to certify others to teach his approach.

I am very pleased to say that I successfully completed this training program and am excited to let you know that in the New Year, I will be offering interactive, high-content training sessions where attendees can expect to learn GREAT tools and information on how to deliberately attract more of what they want and less of what they don’t in all areas of their lives. This straight-forward, step-by-step, no nonsense, “how to” approach is so simple, we can incorporate it into our lives every single day!

I will have more information about these training sessions on my web-site soon. During the training I received, it became very clear how important it is to give deliberate attention, energy and focus to our words, thoughts and actions every day in order to achieve the results we are looking for in ANY area of our life.

This message really hit home when one of the members of a breakfast networking group that I attend shared an excerpt from a book he was reading (thank you Wayne). I have included it below and as you read it, I would like you to notice how very relevant it is to the steps you and I are taking together – whether big or small – in regards to nutritional and lifestyle changes that will lead to a healthier, more vibrant you! So, here is the excerpt that was read, from the book The Greatest Guide, by Robin Sharma:

Your days are your life in miniature. As you live your hours, so you create your years. As you live your days, so you craft your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you think, the food you eat and the actions you take are defining your destiny – shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for. Small choices lead to giant consequences – over time. There’s no such thing as an unimportant day. Each one of us is called to greatness. Each one of us has an exquisite power within us.

Each one of us can have a significant impact on the world around us – if we so choose. But for this power that resides internally to grow, we need to use it. And the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. The more this power gets tapped, the more confident you become. Henry David Thoreau related this point well when he wrote: “I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of a human being to elevate their life by conscious endeavour.” And advertising guru Donny Deutsch added a more current spin on the idea when he wrote in his book Often Wrong, Never in Doubt: “For every person with the stuff, the one out of a hundred who goes to a rarefied place is the one who says ‘why not me?’ and goes for it.”

The best among us are not more gifted than the rest. They just take little steps each day as they march toward their biggest life. And the days slip into weeks, the weeks into months and before they know it, they arrive at a place called Extraordinary.

The ‘significant impact we have on the world around us’ can start simply by making better choices for our own well-being. As we become healthier, more vibrant and more joyful, isn’t it very possible that we will have a more positive impact on the people and situations around us…and attract more positive people and situations into our lives?  I think so.

Finally, no Tip of the Month would be complete without me saying SOMETHING that is food and/or nutrition related! So, here it is: Enjoy all of the special treats and comfort foods that the holiday season has to offer…while still practicing some moderation, variety and balance if at all possible! Don’t stress it – bless it! Then, eat it and enjoy it! My very best wishes to you and yours for a healthy and joyful holiday season.
