Law of Attraction and How to Excellently Apply It

Aug 17, 2007
The law of attraction has been quoted as one of the most powerful laws for centuries. The law has been used by thousands of successful people. Many of them are self-made millionaire. In this article, we will talk about law of attraction and how to make use of it with the self-concept.

In Brian Tracy's book, "Maximum Achievement", gives a good overview of law of attraction. I hereby summarize the law as shown in the following:

The law of attraction says that each human being is a living magnet. It also says that we radiate thought, energy and that we invariably attract into our lives the people and circumstances that harmonize with our dominant thoughts. If we wish to attract different people, different circumstances and different events, we have to change the content of our conscious mind. We can dramatically improve the quality of our lives by taking control of our mind and manufacturing beliefs and expectation consistent with that we want to happen in the future. It can be said that what we think, we are.

A positive mental attitude is an absolutely indispensable prerequisite for success. The only factor that determine how well a person does or how far he goes is affected by his attitudes. Attitudes come from our expectations about outcome. If we expect things to turn out poorly, we have negative attitudes. Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations well in advance of the event. If we make a habit of always expecting the best out of everything we do, we have one of the keys to a successful life.

Where do our expectations come from? They come from our fundamental beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. Our beliefs are based on our self concept. Every one of us has a self-concept, which is the controlling factor in our performance. Our self-concept is a combination of all the ideas, thoughts and experiences that have happened to us over the course of our lives that come together to form a composite image of the person we believe ourselves to be. We always perform in a manner consistent with our self-concept.

The self-concept is made up of three fundamental ingredients. Understanding of the self-concept is a key to understanding and unlocking human performance.

1. The first element of the self-concept is what we call the self-ideal, or the ideal self. Every one of us has numerous pictures, feeling and thoughts of the ideal person we would most like to be. It's usually a composite of all the people we have admired. We are continually adjusting our behaviors, actions and words to try to be more like the ideal person.

2. The second part of the self-concept is the self-image. It is the way we see and think about ourselves. It's our inner mirror. We tend to walk, talk sit, act, think and relate to other people in a manner consistent with this self-image, or inner mirror. If we wish to change our external performance, we have to change this inner picture.

3. The third element of the self-concept is self-esteem. It is the root of self-concept and the core of human personality. Self-esteem is the most important element in human performance. The person with healthy self-esteem likes himself. People who genuinely like and accept themselves as valuable human beings perform at higher levels of effectiveness. Self-esteem can be caused by using the word "I like myself, I like myself." repeatedly until it is driven deeply into your subconscious.

People who genuinely like themselves and accept themselves as valuable persons like and accept other people to the same degree. It is impossible to like or love anybody else more than we like or love ourselves.

The law of attraction can be useful if you know how to apply it. In this article,we talk about self-concept and how it is related to the application of the law of attraction.
