The first question you may ask about the title of this article is, “What in the world does the Law of Attraction have to do with an internet based home business”? There are probably other questions you would ask as well and I will most likely write other articles to express an opinion on the response. But to get back to this question and my response.
Most people start a home based internet business to either supplement their monthly income or to build an income so they can retire from their, 8 to 5, job and spend more quality time with their families. Also, most people have basic beliefs about themselves that, in most cases, will cause them to sabotage their success at reaching their goals. They do this in many different ways. I can’t go into all of them in one article so I will just cover one that you may think are elementary.
The first way people sabotage themselves is to say “I don’t need to set specific goals.” That statement is very true if you plan NOT to succeed. To be successful in any endeavor you have to have goals. You have to have immediate goals (what to do today to improve my business), monthly goals (what I believe I can accomplish toward my quarterly goals), quarterly goals (what I believe I will accomplish toward my yearly goals), yearly goals (what I believe…), 3 year goals (what I…), 5 year goals (…), 10 year goals, and so on.
I know this seams very simplistic to a lot of people but it is one of the major blocks in the success of start up internet marketing businesses. Let’s look at a couple of these in a little more detail.
1-Immeadiate goals: What do I plan to do on a daily basis to increase traffic to my web site? How many articles do I plan to write this week? How much time I will I spend each day in forums? How many blogs will I publish this week? How much time will I spend each day increasing my education and how will I prioritize the knowledge I need to gain to be successful? These are only a few of the things you need to consider on your immediate goals. I am sure if you take a few minutes you can come up with several more.
2-Monthly goals-What do I plan to do to increase optimization of my web site this month? How much money can I allot to advertising for the month? Where will I use my advertising allowance? What adds will I use based on the type of advertising I will be doing? How will I track the effectiveness of my adds? These are just a few of the things you need to consider each month to increase you traffic and cost per customer ratio.
3-Quarterly goals-What is my targeted increase in customer base, quarterly profits, optin increase, etc? These are things you need to have defined based on the actions you are taking so you can have a gage to determine if your campaigns are working.
4-Yearly goals-What net monthly profit do you believe you can accomplish in the last month of the year? What number of optin subscribers do you believe you will have by the end of the year? How many, how much, from where are all questions you should have ask and have projected numbers for by the end of the year.
5-Three year an up goals are very broad categories that you should have goals of accomplishment set for. How much monthly income will I have, what type of house will I live in, what type of car will I drive, and so on.
Now to how this is related to the Law of Attraction. If you don’t believe you deserve to have the things you have set your goals to get then you will not get them. It is really that simple. You may not believe this but your basic belief in what you should or should not have has a very limiting effect on your success. If you believe you have to ‘work hard for your money’ you will. If you believe ‘money is bad or rich people are thieves’ you will not accomplish your goals. I could go on and on with this list of beliefs but I think you get what I mean.
There are ways to get around limiting beliefs. There are also ways to change limiting beliefs. It is not easy to do so mainly because we have a tendency to believe that we do not have limiting beliefs but most of us do.
Work on your goals, write them out and read them at least each morning when you get up and just before you go to bed. Take 15 minutes each day and think about the end result you are looking for. Not only will this help you accomplish it but it feels good to see yourself as having the things you have set your goals to accomplish.
Good luck and I truly wish you all the success you are willing to believe you deserve.
I know this is the second article in the series and you are still asking, “What in the world does the Law of Attraction have to do with an internet based home business”? I also know there are probably other questions you continue to ask as well and I have all intentions of writing other articles to express an opinion in response. But to get back to this question and my response.
The last article gave my opinion on how goals were associated with the law of attraction and also a little about beliefs. In this article I am going to give you my opinion on how gratitude plays an important role in the Law of Attraction, your internet based business and being as successful as you would like to be.
Most people think about gratitude, when they think of it at all, as saying “thank you” when someone opens a door for them or when they are given some type of help in any number of situations. Believe you me, it is nice to have someone open the door for you, especially when you need (have a bulky object in your arms) it opened. Even though “thank you” is appropriate to say when other people help you to show your appreciation and gratitude, this is not what I am getting at when I refer to gratitude in association with your internet based home business and the Law of Attraction.
When you consider the Law of Attraction in combination with success in life you have to consider what material objects really are. How they are brought into being and what actions are necessary to attract them into your life.
I will not be able to address these issues except from a very broad perspective in this one article, in fact I will only briefly hit upon them. It would take a complete book to address what material things really are and another complete book to discuss how they are brought into being and what actions are necessary to attract them into you possession. Taking this into consideration please realize that I am just going to touch very broad aspects of these ideas.
1-What material objects are. Material objects are composed of atoms (as I understand it you can actually get to a smaller unit than the atom, I think I have heard it termed the Plank Scale). The most solid thing you see is 99.9999999… percent space. All material objects, including you and I are made of atoms. I am not an expert in this field, so far be it from me to try to detail any of this information, BUT, if the center of an atom was the size of a basketball the electrons circling it would be about 20 miles out from the center. Considering everything is made up of atoms you try to determine how much of you is space and how much is matter.
2-How material objects are brought into our possession. Everything in this universe has a specific vibration. Like vibrations attract like vibrations. To bring anything into your possession you have to maintain a vibration in resonance with the things you are attracting. The problem with this is that nearly all of us attract through an unconscious vibrational pattern. We do not control our thoughts our thoughts control us.
3-What actions are necessary to bring matter into being, as far as material wealth is concerned. That is easier to answer. First is thought, which is pure vibration. Seeing what you desire in your mind brings that thing into focus. Second is word. What you talk about most of the time is what you think about most of the time. Third is action. Taking inspired action on intuitive ideas that are presented to you at the time they are presented will bring you what you have thought about and spoke of.
Here is where gratitude comes into play. To bring the things you desire into your life you have to be grateful for what you have right now. You have to believe that you are deserving and be thankful for all you desire before it is physically present and in your possession. So if you can’t see your internet based business as successful right now, even though you are spending such and such amount of money out of pocket and spending so many hours of your leisure time building a business, you will never truly be successful as an internet marketer.
Get your goals firmly set in your mind, especially your one year and above goals. Think about them, focus on them and see yourself as having achieved them in your mind. This brings you into vibrational resonance with what you desire.
Talk about your goals as if they were already accomplished. This creates and instills belief that you are deserving and that you can have those things you desire.
Take inspired action whenever your intuition, not your emotions, shows you a path to follow. And for goodness sake show and speak gratitude to the Universe for all the many wonderful things you have in your life right now.
You know what you have to show gratitude for. It may be a wonderful family, great relationships and enough money at the end of the month to pay all your bills. Though, It just may be for being able to get out of bed each day, having eggs for breakfast, breathing fresh air or any of thousands of little things that we take for granted each and every day.
Remember the Universe has already made everything you could possibly imagine, all you have to do is get in vibrational resonance with it to attract it.
