Keep Your Attention On What You Want
Have you ever wondered: "How does this 'Law of Attraction' really work? Can I really attract only what I want?"
You Can! It requires you to make many conscious choices. Most of the time it seems much easier to notice what we don't like or want and to focus by complaining about that. The ***trick*** is to become clear about what DO you want and to keep your attention on THAT!
I'll share a personal story that will demonstrate how the Law of Attraction works in every day life:
I am going to move to the west coast soon. Having lived on the Canadian prairies for more than 30 years, the prospect of returning to a warmer climate is bringing me much joy!
I am keeping my attention on where I want to live. In fact, I just visited the city I have my attention on, did a whirlwind tour with a realtor and found the ideal area I want to live in.
In the old days, I would be focused on (obsessed with) my current situation and what I need to do to change the "reality" of where I am right now. But according to the Law of Attraction, placing my attention on what I do NOT want would bring more of THAT into my life.
It is so much more fun to think about where I am wanting to live. I took a walk along the ocean and discovered some special stones which I brought back to Saskatchewan. These stones are now arranged in a small bowl next to my computer monitor where I can see them all day long. They provide a good focal point for keeping my attention upon where I want to be.
I have placed sea shells and starfish throughout my house as reminders of the ocean--where I am wanting to live. There are sea shells in the bathroom, along the bath tub and next to the sink. In the kitchen, I arranged sea shells in a dish and placed them on a counter top where I can't miss seeing them. I've placed sea shells and a starfish IN my bed, so that if I awaken during the night, I can reach for them and remind myself of where I am wanting to be.
More and more I am daydreaming about my new location. While I was physically there, I made many mental pictures--pictures of myself shopping or having coffee at a sidewalk cafe or entertaining friends in my new condo--pictures of everyday life as I want to be living it.
At first, when I told people about my upcoming move, I felt uncertain and tentative about my decision. That's normal. We are only comfortable with what we know already...anything new or unexperienced will feel strange--until the "new and unexperienced" becomes so normal and real in our minds that the Universe just HAS to give it to us.
In fact, that is all the Universe is waiting for--for you to spend so much time living the life you want in your mind that the ONLY thing left is to give you the life you are wanting!
In closing, bring to mind something that you are desiring...close your eyes and picture yourself actually enjoying what you are wanting. Engage all your senses--pretend to smell it or taste it. What would it physically feel like? That's the first step in deliberately attracting what you REALLY want!

Reaching for the Goal
Can goals be easily reached? This question is in most of our minds. Some tend to think that goals are hard to achieve and that only very clever people can be true achievers!
Why You Must Stop Setting Goals
My goal in life is to have no goals. They get in the way of true progress.

Keeping the Dream Alive
Like the song by Linda Ronstadt, "a dream is a wish that your heart makes." To lose a dream is to die a little yourself. It means closing down the part of you that can soar above the reality of your current life to see new and exciting possibilities.
Waiting On Your Big Break Is Playing Desperation Life!
Have you ever put all your eggs in one basket? Have you ever had so much riding on one big break that if it didn't happen you would have to move down to the zoo and live off of kudzu and stump water? If you have, you're playing desperation life!
Great Things Materialize Once We Start to Visualize
Watching the Olympics last week really amazed me. The feats of strength were fantastic, and the drama of the events themselves was captivating. But what really made the biggest impact was being reminded of something we all know or have learned in the past, and yet rarely put into action for ourselves: the art of visualization.
Goal Setting - The Facts Behind The Fiction
To have hopes and dreams for the future is a wonderful idea. If you want to call them 'goals' that's fine also but do learn to get things in perspective. They are NOT achieved in the way you have been led to believe.

Ready, Fire, Aim
Does the sub-title to this edition of Footprints and Monuments sound familiar? It does to me in a very real way. When I was a teenager my dad and I loved to go hunting. We would hunt whatever animal happened to be in season at the time, and anything else that moved. Especially snakes, but that is another story.

Develop Your Soul Goals!
Occasionally when I talk with people about goals they seem to interpret the intention of goals as being to get more things. Naturally things are important but there is so much more to goal setting that I wish to share with you.
Breaking Goals Down To The Basics
One of the primary reasons why people fail to execute their goals is they set forth unrealistic or overly complex goals. Most of us have the tendency to look at the finish line without paying much consideration to the distance between the end point and us. Here are a couple examples to illustrate this point:
5 Steps to Goal Setting Success
Goal setting is the true secret to success in any area of life. But although setting a goal may seem simple, achieving it is usually another question altogether.
The Stories We Tell Ourselves
The Hasidic master, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach taught that on Passover night we are bringing our entire life stories to the Seder table to be freed. What exactly does this mean? To begin with, we are by nature, storytellers. Whether we are aware of it or not, we live in a world of stories. Stories that we tell our family, friends, coworkers, and clients. Stories we share over the phone, e-mail, in our journals and the stories that are constantly playing themselves out in our heads. Stories about what's happening to those we love, stories about those we despise, stories that inspire the spirit, and stories that instill fear.
Willpower: Who Needs It? Not Me
What is this mysterious creature, this intangible element, this phantom that we seek for so hard, yet can often never find, or keep control of? This thing called 'willpower' and who really needs it anyway?
The Psychology Of Success
Everybody has a dream. A fantasy, if you like. Usually it takes the form of something we would like to have, or something we would like to happen to us. How we respond to this dream will decide whether we are successful, or whether we remain as we are.
Your Goals Clearly In Mind
Keep Your Goals Fresh In Your Mind - Most of us have goals, the question is how many of us actually follow-up and work those goals.
Reaching Your Goals: A Ridiculous Way to Succeed
If you've ever had any sales training, you've probably been taught the technique called "Reduction to the Ridiculous." This is the technique of breaking a price down to smaller and smaller units until it sounds insignificant compared to the value of your product. Here's an example?
