Success and The Law of Attraction: Creating a Wealth Mindset

chopra law of attraction

One of the most important keys to success is the development of a prosperity consciousness, also known as a wealth mindset.

chopra law of attractionIn today’s world, it is becoming clearer and clearer that the main principles for success have to do not only with one’s business savvy, persistence and determination, but with the mindset that they hold, and the extent to which they believe they are capable of success.

That’s because thoughts create your experience of reality, a concept known as the law of attraction. Basically, the law of attraction is a principle that says you get what you give, and your energy (aka: your mindset and beliefs) determine what you will get back out of life.

If you think everyone is out to get you and looking to cheat you every chance they get, that’s exactly the experience you’ll have. If you think that people are generally well-meaning and there are infinite possibilities for creating wealth, then that is the experience you have. Either way, it’s up to you.

If you want to learn more, there’s a great Introduction to The Law of Attraction posted over a universal-laws.org

The key point I want to address here, however, is how this law actually impacts the ability for you to develop success for yourself.

It’s true on both a neuroscientific and physical level. Generally speaking, when you believe that you will be successful, your mind will release chemicals into your brain that stimulate you to action, thereby making it more probable for you to experience that success.

If you believe in endless opportunities, your mind will train itself to look for those opportunities, and you will be inspired towards better ideas for generating wealth and prosperity for yourself and your business.

That means that even though the idea of “thoughts creating reality” might sound like a New Age concept, it is definitely applicable to any business operating today, regardless of your industry.

So, if you haven’t had the success you desire with your business, I strongly encourage you to rethink the mindset that you hold, and to evaluate some of the underlying beliefs that might be behind your thoughts and actions.

When you do that consistently, you will quite literally propel yourself forward into success.

In the meantime, here’s one of my favorite explanations of this concept, by teacher Abraham Hicks. Listen to the video to get an idea of how the law of attraction works in your own life.

The Key To Success Is In Your Thoughts

Think and Grow Rich

think-and-grow-rich-quoteHave you ever read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill?

If so, you know that there is a mysterious truth to the universe that ties together an individual’s success and ultimate results in life with the state of his mind, and belief in his own ability to create that success for himself.

To be honest, the first time I read the book I thought it was a little strange, and much of the actual text is dated. The book was published in the 1930s, and it’s easy to write it off as a Depression-era “feel-good” book to try to encourage people to get back to work and build self-confidence.

However, as you dig further into what Hill is saying, it becomes increasingly evident that the material presented in the book was collected through interviews with hundreds of the country’s most successful personalities and businessmen of the time, and they all agreed with Hill’s main premise.

We are what we think about, and we can control our own destiny.

The Law of Attraction in Today’s World

The Law of Attraction blog, SuccessThoughts.org is a modern day rendition promoting many of the principles outlined by Hill and his contemporaries.

The “science” behind the law of attraction is still far from being definitively proven, but in the last few years there have been a number of different experts claiming they’ve figured out different versions of why the Law of Attraction works. From Jack Canfield to Bob Proctor, Rhonda Byrne, and Abraham-Hicks, everyone seems to have a different way of describing very closely related principles, which actually have their origin on many of the world’s most-revered religious texts, including the Bible, Tao Te Zing, as well as Buddhist and Hindu writings.

The premise is that there is an underlying current of energy (some call this God, others energy, others beauty) that permeates all things, and we can influence the creation of our own reality by tapping into this cosmic-fabric. Through meditation and controlling our dominating thought patterns, we are able to effect future manifestations of wealth and abundance.

Sound too good to be true? Give it a try. Here’s one of my favorite abundance meditations from Bob Proctor. Try this out for 30 minutes a day for a month or two, and see if you don’t feel better about your financial situation, and see evidence of more wealth coming into your life.
