The more you find something to appreciate, the better it feels. The better it feels, the more you want to do it. The more you do it, the better it feels. The better it feels…the more you want to do it! The Law of Attraction assists with the powerful momentum of these positive thoughts and feelings until, with very little time and effort, you will find your heart singing in your joyous alignment with who you really are! And, in this wonderful-feeling vibration where no resistance exists, you will be in an exaggerated state of ALLOWING — you will be in the vibrational state where the things that you desire can flow easily into your experience. The better it gets, the better it gets! Abraham Hicks
In my blog post a couple of months ago called ” Building Your Business with Gratitude “, I talked about the journal I started in mid January, to help me focus. I have been using it everyday for the past 2 months, writing my goals, tracking my steps to success and writing down the things I am grateful for each day and creating monthly dream collages. I realized that another key piece to this is faith. You have to trust that process because you don’t see the results immediately.
Why is this? What I have learned in the past two months while doing the process is that I am being rewired. I am creating a new habit while at the same time breaking some old ones that haven’t moved me toward success. This rewiring doesn’t happen over night but taking steps each day has a compound effect.
There is a book floating around among my business friends called The Compound Effect, by Darren Hardy that I have but haven’t read yet. My understanding is that he talks about taking steps everyday toward your goal that will build the momentum. His premise is different than mine but I think it has the same outcome.
Here is what is happening. I have been tracking every little and big thing that I do each day that is focused toward building my business and this has helped me see all the steps I am taking that I might not be aware of if I weren’t tracking them. I am also keeping track of movement toward my goals. This has helped me focus on what I want and takes my focus away from those things that I don’t want, that I might be seeing around me, such as someone’s business growing faster than mine is. If you understand the law of attraction you get what you focus on whether it is something you want or something you don’t want. The Universe doesn’t care, it just follows the energy.
I have learned it is better to have understated goals at first, so that succeeding build your faith and personal momentum. Each time I accomplish a goal I have the experience of success behind me to meet the next one. I notice if I set my goal too high that part of me that might not believe that I can achieve it finds a way to sabotage me.
The bigger thing that I am discovering is that I might not meet all of my weekly goals but there is an explosion happening in my business on a larger scale, more in alignment with my larger goals. This has taught me that the most important part of this practice is consistency and focus, not meeting every goal. The compound effect I am feeling is like a magnetic force that has been built up over the past two months as I am rewired internally and have faith in the process.
My business is exploding in unexpected ways and I believe this process has had a big impact on what is happening, and I am not stopping now!
