Are there ever moments in your life when you feel that something life-changing is about to happen? What do you do then? Do you take advantage of that moment, or do you walk away? I often do the former. This is why I was so thankful that I didn’t say no when I was invited to join a masterclass on the Law of Attraction and Neurolinguistic Programming.
And I would have if I had listened to the voice at the back of my head who just couldn’t believe that success is something that can simply be taught. I’m so glad I overcame my lizard brain’s resistance to learn more about something I used to find odd.
As I promised back in March, I’m going to share with all of you the things that I’ve learned from the Law of Attraction/NLP masterclass.
The Law of Attraction: What I’ve Learned So Far
1. Always begin with the end in mind.
Our goals should always be aligned with what we want. Motivation is a finite resource, and once it’s gone, it’s easy to get lost in the maze of distractions and conflicting goals. It’s also important to know why we want to achieve a particular goal, as that will determine the next steps that we will be taking and whether we can weather any challenges along the way.
As Viktor Frankl said in Man’s Search for Meaning, “When you know your why, you can endure any how” (emphasis mine).
2. I am not my body. I live in a body.
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience,” said the French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. This is a valuable nugget of staggering importance because it reminded me that who I am and what I do matter. Every thought that I think is creating my future, and every act that I make has an impact on someone’s life. As Joel Roberts said: “I am capable of a goodness which can resound around the world. I am capable, like God, of using language to bring things into existence.”
3. You can tell your brain what you want to achieve.
I did not want to believe it at first. After all, how can you convince me that my thoughts and emotions are powerful enough to shape the world? But author Vishen Lakhiani said it best: “If you can accept any model of reality, why not choose one that suggests you can literally bend reality with your mind?”
Our thoughts create our reality. “Everything that we ever created, everything that has ever existed, began in the mind. All thoughts are the beginning of all things real; all things that you can touch and feel began in the mind.” If that is so, if I choose to focus on the negative, I will always be stuck with negative thoughts.
4. “The map is not the territory.” – Alfred Korzybski
How we perceive the world is shaped by our past experiences, reactions, abstractions, and rationalizations. Our worldview is not reality itself. In a sense, the truth is subjective, and each person has their own model of reality. Therefore, it only makes sense to be more compassionate with one another. More importantly, this taught me that I owe it to myself to examine and reexamine my beliefs, challenging any thoughts and ideas that do not benefit me.
5. Self-acceptance is one of the first steps towards making a positive change.
When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works. Self-hatred and guilt are damaging patterns, and these are fairly common. However, it’s important that we accept ourselves for who we are, cliche as it is. We need to release our need to be right and perfect all the time. We should understand that we are not perfect; we are always learning. I should love the painful process of growing into the person I want to be. (I am literally crying buckets as I write this haha.)
6. How you do anything is how you do everything.
Many years ago, I read somewhere that if you can serve a cup of tea, you can do anything. I know that the universe has a purpose for reminding me of this concept. As Coach Bonnie said, how you accept compliments is how you handle money.
Bonus! 7. “The point of power is in the present moment.” – Louise L. Hay
This is something that I need to be constantly reminded of. It’s true, isn’t it? The past is done, and the future remains to be created. So I should rejoice in every moment, and make every moment count because the present is the only thing I have control over. I know now that I’ve got nothing to lose if I choose to live courageously.
On a final note, I would say that this masterclass has literally changed the course of my life. Now, I know how to pick myself up when I’m feeling depressed and how to reprogram my brain to get rid of bad habits and negative thoughts. It’s like I’ve been wandering the desert, lost for years, and I bumped into a treasure chest with maps and navigational tools to get me back on the right track.
That’s why I’m confident to share this with you. I invite you to take the class and experience a once-in-a-lifetime chance to discover more about yourself and how you can be a master of your own life.
