Whenever we choose to do something, it is important to ask the question: What’s in it for me? By this we don’t mean money, grades, awards, or recognition. The more important question is “Who are we becoming?”
The principle of becoming is based on a natural law known as the Law of Attraction.
The positive or negative results I have in my life
are attracted to me by the person I have become.
We don’t necessarily chase success. As if we were magnets, success in life is drawn to us by what we are becoming. This is true for failure as well as success.
Our friend Michael Cole was first exposed to the Law of Attraction in his mid-twenties. It launched him on a life-long quest of becoming, a quest of discovering and developing his True Self. With his personal, financial, and professional life in a total mess at the age of 25, Michael didn’t understand this concept when his mentor first introduced him to this law.
“Michael,” his teacher said, “you said that you are not happy with your job, you’re not happy with your life, you’re not happy with your financial situation. Whether you know it or not, you have attracted this to your life by the person you have been up to now. If you want to change your life for the better, you have to stop trying to change all the things out there—like ‘improving’ your wife or kids or finding the right job. You need to work on you, on becoming a better thinker, learner, and communicator. I promise that your life will explode in positive ways that you never dreamt possible.”
Michael took his mentor’s lesson to heart. He swallowed it hook, line, and sinker and today feels like one of the most fortunate people on the planet.
Reflection: The Law of Attraction may be difficult to understand or accept. Things can come into our life that we didn’t ‘attract’. However, consider how the Law of Attraction may be operating in the bigger picture of your life. Can you see that who you have become has attracted some significant things into your life?
