THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
By Brian Tracy
You are a living
magnet; you invariably attract into your life the people, situations and
circumstances that are in harmony with your dominant thoughts.
This is one of the great laws that explain much of success and failure in
business and personal life. It has been written about as far back as the
ancient Egyptian mystery schools, 3000 years before Christ. It is so
powerful, pervasive and all encompassing that it affects everything you do
or say, or even think or feel.
Everything you have in your life, you have attracted to yourself because
of the way you think, because of the person you are. You can change your
life because you can change the way you think. You can change the person
you are. You have heard it said, "Birds of a feather flock
together." "Like attracts like." "Whatever you
want, wants you." These are ways of expressing the Law of Attraction.
Your thoughts are extremely powerful. They are a form of mental energy
that travels at the speed of light. They are so fine that they can go
through any barrier. This is why, for example, you can think about a
person, sometimes at a great distance, and in the next moment, the phone
will ring and that person will be on the line. Your thoughts have
connected with that person the moment you thought them.
Companies develop products, processes, services and ways of doing business
that attract an entire constellation of customers, employees, suppliers,
financiers and circumstances that are in harmony with the dominant
thinking of the organization. It is as though every human ingredient
inside and outside of the organization is a musical instrument.
Together, they make up a great symphony. They are all playing together and
creating a form of music that constitutes the activities of your business
and your life.
Whenever things are not going well in any organization, the fastest way to
bring about change is to bring in a new person who changes the way people
think and feel about themselves and what they are doing. New values, new
visions, new strategies and new policies toward customers and toward each
other bring about rapid and often dramatic change.
