When “The Law of Attraction” became widely known a few years ago, many people were mislead into thinking that you simply had to declare your desire to the Universe and wait for opportunities to come to you. People were hearing glowing testimonials of individuals who asked for and received extravagant things to manifest in their lives.

In a certain light, it’s easy to believe that these opportunities just fell into their laps, like a genie in a magic lamp. However, I guarantee there are two things happening in each Law of Attraction success story, and here’s how you can approach them.

1) Awareness

First, you need to come to the realization that in order to live your life on purpose, you have to know exactly what you want. Increasing self-awareness is first thing you focus on. Everyone has a current reality in the middle of himself and his purpose. Get as clear a vision as you can of that dream.

2) Take Action

Once you have become clear on you want, then you have to develop a PLAN. There are many different methods you can take to map out the journey to your purpose. The simplest one is to just sit down and put it all on paper.

As you’re doing this, you might hear that little voice telling you that you can’t do it. We all have that voice — the one that give us all the excuses as to why we can’t possibly fulfill our dream. Instead try to block out those doubts, address that voice and find ways to circumvent the obstacles it puts in front of you. Use it as your helper, instead of simply making believe that it’s not there. When that voice comes in, let it be, and take notes. Then develop a plan, and put it into practice.

Keep in mind that the Law of Attraction is not a genie in a magic lamp, but rather a tool to help you focus your intentions. That said, it can help bring amazing opportunities into your daily life on the path to finding your true purpose.
