We all have dreams and desires. Some of them, more lofty than others. And, some of us actually do something with them.
Yet, many do nothing with them, other than dream. The standard bill-of-fare for achieving in this world – hard work, more hard work, even more hard work, and a great big lucky break – strongly drives me, like many, away.
I see that much work in anything, and I grab a beer and go find a picnic table by the bay. That last part, the big lucky break, is a real game changer as well. The ‘big lucky break’ is what gives us the impression that success is only for the next guy.
Just like winning the $200 Million lottery. You really have to be lucky!
Success and the Law of Attraction
Don’t get me wrong here, I am not saying you shouldn’t work. Quite the opposite. We do have to work. We do have to create. And in doing so, we create life experiences that lead to wisdom, insight, and ultimately, success.
But, keeping your nose to the grindstone will just give you a flat face.
The key, as everyone has heard at least once in their lives, is to work smarter, not harder. That’s where supercharging your efforts through manifestation, and the Law of Attraction comes in.
Law of Attraction Helps Hone Core Skills
Writing, like anything thing else, is a skill you can learn. And, since it’s a skill, you can utilize the Law of Attraction to become better at it — to help you learn it the easiest and best way possible. And, to be your very best at it.
It’s all a matter of where you place your focus. The Law of Attraction is a universal law that says what you think about the most, what you focus on the most, becomes real in your life. That what you worry about, what makes you happy, what makes you scared or what brings you great comfort, will increase in your life. Both in the physical, and the non-physical sense.
It all boils down to our intentions and attention. Where you place your intentions and awareness determines what is attracted into your physical, day to day life. So, how does that apply to your writing, specifically? And how can you achieve success in your freelance writing endeavors?
Law of Attraction Can Remedy Writer’s Block and Land Clients
You can achieve success in your writing in many ways. You can use the Law of Attraction to have the words come to you and flow effortlessly onto the page. You can use it to secure new clients. To find better ways to complete an assignment. Or to overcome any obstacle and finish that manuscript you’ve been writing.
The easiest way to do this involves a simple, two step process. The first, cerebral. And the second, physical. Taking action and putting the Law of Attraction to work for you.
The first step involves gathering all the issues you have (or don’t have) with your project or idea and setting them aside. That’s right, gather up all the worries, the problems you face, the blocks and the circumstances, and chuck them!
Don’t misunderstand me. I know denial is not only a river in Jordan. All those issues, those problems and worries, are still there. But we’re going to go past them. We are answer finders, not problem solvers. The problems will work themselves out, when you know what it is you want.
Remember, the key to the Law of Attraction is what you place your focus on. What you think about the most, manifests in your life. So let’s look at the answers!
If it will help you keep track, you can even write all these issues down as you think of them. Go ahead, get them out of your system. Leave a lot of white space between each one.
Now after each issue, after writing it down or formulating it in your mind, think immediately of the perfect, positive outcome to each issue. For instance, an issue may be that it’s so noisy in your house that you can’t focus on writing very well.
Draw a line through that! Erase that from your head!
Focus instead on, “I am so focused on my writing that I don’t hear any distractions.” Also, “I write freely and effortlessly.” And, “It’s a joy to write, it makes me happy!”
Take each issue, as you formulate it in your mind, and replace it immediately with the positive, reversal of the problem.
Affirmations Become Reality
That brings us to the second, primarily physical step. That is, reading aloud your affirmations that you formulate. Each one of the positive answers and outcomes to those issues that you identified becomes an affirmation that you can use.
And each affirmation focuses your attention on what you want to happen, what you want in your life. Remember, I am not denying the rough patches, the challenges that we all face. I am saying to limit the focus you afford the issues and place as much focus as you can on the positive elements you want in your life.
That is the utilization of the Law of Attraction, in it’s simplest form.
Each morning as you sit down to your writing, pull out your affirmations, and read them off. It is best if you read them off aloud. Keep the list short and concise. Ten to twelve items works best. You can use multiple lists if need be, for different segments of your writing.
As you repeat the affirmations, see yourself, and feel yourself completing each item. See, and feel yourself writing well, writing often, and finishing that book.
Then as you finish for the day, go back and repeat the affirmations. Make those things a habit in your subconscious, act as though they are really happening. Your mind really can’t tell if you are vividly imagining them, or living them out. To your subconscious, it’s all the same.
Will your writing improve, and all the issues disappear with the snap of a finger? Of course not.
But where do you think your writing success will flow from? Constantly focusing on all your issues and problems? Or on your writing success?
I wish you all the best.
