Dressing For Success And The Law Of Attraction

Have you heard the saying “Appearance is everything”? It may sound shallow, but in actual fact it is a key component that makes up most of the first impression one gives others in any social of business setting. So what does Dressing For Success have to do with the Law of Attraction? Here are a few notes on this key element…

Society has groomed us over the centuries to look at our appearance as the key defining element that makes the relationship between ourselves and other members of the society we live in. Your clothing is the key to the impression you have on others you want to be associated with. Key points to consider:

  1. Branding: Your appearance makes part of a statement of who you are. You will be able to attain your set goals if you cloth yourself for success from the get go. It is more to do with how you feel about yourself than what others feel about you. How comfortable and confident in your clothes will determine first and foremost the strength of energy you will be able to put out into the universe around you. If you are not confident in yourself and how you look, you will not be able to release and attain your true potential as you will be bottling up and shutting yourself down, losing who you really are and could be. Looking at some famous names out there, you will note that they did not become overnight successes all by what they specialized in. It actually ment that they had to work on themselves to gear up and tap into their true potential by dressing right.
  2. Your Wardrobe and Current Fashion: What is in your wardrobe? are you up to date with current fashion trends? Do your clothes look as if you had to get your mother to dress you up or do you come across as if you are wearing hand-me-downs that do not seem to fit? It is important to keep your wardrobe current and filled with only clothes that fit you right. Whether it means that you have to go to a specialist fashion designer to get your outfits fitted just right or simply to find out what type of clothes you should be wearing, not forgetting the all important dress codes of where and when you should be wearing them. You should find it not too hard to change and adapt accordingly. It enables you to bring out the second bold statement of the level of due diligence of knowing how to take care of not only ones own personal self and own possessions, but that of others as well.
  3. Your Cleanliness:Not only does this refers to you as an individual but it also applies to your clothes. They all need to be clean and neat.

The Law of Attraction – A Brief History

Following the publication of Rhonda Byrne’s book ‘The Secret’, and the release of the subsequent, highly-successful ‘The Secret’ DVD, the term ‘The Law of Attraction’ swiftly entered popular consciousness. The self help and self improvement phenomenon has been widely discussed on television by such mainstream figures as Larry King and Oprah Winfrey.

It’s hardly surprising that many people consider The Law of Attraction a relatively new creation, a kind of self help pilates or Atkins diet, if you will. However, it’s been around for quite some time, and takes a good deal of its inspiration from Classical and Ancient beliefs.

Before we proceed with a brief (and potted) history, here’s a quick in-a-nutshell definition for those of you who don’t quite know what The Law of Attraction is. The Law of Attraction is a radical spiritual philosophy that states that ‘like attracts like’, that ‘you get what you think about; your thoughts determine your experience’.

The principles that form the foundations of The Law of Attraction can be found in one of the world’s oldest religions: Hinduism. It is possible that a fascination with Hinduism lead the idea to be adopted and developed in later theosophical works published by a number of leading Victorian spiritualists. Madame Blavatsky, for example, used the expression ‘The Law of Attraction’ in her 1877 book ‘Isis Unveiled: the Secrets of the Ancient Wisdom Traditions’. A quarter of a century later, James Allen (publisher and editor of the magazine ‘The Light of Reason’) alludes to the same principals in his highly-regarded proto self help book ‘As a Man Thinketh’, taking his inspiration from the Jewish proverb ‘As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is’. The central belief behind the book is that noble thoughts make a person noble, whilst lowly (or ‘bestial’) thoughts make a person miserable. One of Allen’s most memorable quotations is, “Mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance”.

Four years after ‘As a Man Thinketh’ was published, with the development of the New Thought Movement, the concept of The Law of Attraction begins to gain considerable pace. In 1906, the book ‘Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World’ by William Walker Atkinson is published. A year later, ‘Prosperity Through Thought Force’ by Bruce MacLelland appears in print. One of the founding members and leading lights of the original Theosophical Society, William Quan Judge wrote about The Law of Attraction in 1915, as did Annie Besant (founder of the Central Hindu College at Varanasi) in 1919.

Thereafter, a steady stream of metaphysical authors and theosophists make reference to The Law of Attraction, including Florence Scovel Shinn (author of the self help book ‘The Game of Life and How to Play it’ 1925), Alice Bailey and Sri K. Parvathi Kumar.

So you can see, the likes of Esther Hicks, Beth and Lee McCain and, most recently, Rhonda Byrne, far from being pioneers of a strange and new system of self help and self improvement, are in fact part of a long and enduring tradition.

Design a Life – Use the Law of Attraction to Design a Life

There is a power that permeates our universe and when used correctly, we can use this power to draw to us whatever we focus on with our thoughts, be it wealth, love or a new car. When we magnify our thoughts with the power of emotion, they become magnets to whatever we have asked for and then we only need believe that we will receive that which we have asked for and wait for the sign that will lead us to it. We can design a life of prosperity and abundance but first there are a few steps we need to take in order to get into the right mindset and come into harmony with The Law Of Attraction.

One major thing we are missing in today’s world where we live in a society ruled by T.V., and materialism is Discipline. Without discipline, how can we hope to suddenly start using a mysterious power brought to our attention by people who have barely just discovered it themselves? The Law of Attraction has been around since the dawn of man, according to all the experts on the subject but for some unknown reason it got lost and was only used by a select few, who guarded it’s power greedily.

Since then, until now, only those who were disciplined enough and had enough belief have been able to use this force successfully to design a life and create inventions that have catapulted man into this technological age we are now in.

If you wish to use this law as it is your right to do then i recommend that you take steps to discipline your mind before attempting to attract anything into your life. Should you try to use the law with your ill disciplined mind (no offense intended) then i assure you, you will most likely fail and become one of the many doubters.

To discipline your mind, you first need to weed it of negatives. What i mean by negatives are the beliefs you have which are locked in your unconscious mind controlling your life discreetly without you knowing it.

These beliefs need to be either banished from your mind for good, or completely reversed. I’ll give you some examples of beliefs:

“I always get sick in winter”. “I am not a very good runner.” “My hearing is terrible.” and a very damaging one, “I’m nervous around people in positions of power.”

These are all programs that you picked up somewhere along the line and can be just as easily unprogrammed or reprogrammed. After all, it was easy to put them in there wasn’t it? You can just as easily take them out and put new ones in. All you have to do is stop conforming to other peoples rules and expectations because they aren’t living your life, you are!Choose thoughts that feel right to you and let these become your beliefs.

Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, catch it and weed it. It is past programming and is useless to you so get rid of it by dismissing it and replacing it with a positive affirmation.

Here are some other techniques you can use to start the discipline of your mind.

1:Meditation – Find some information on it and do it because it will train you to quiet your mind

2: Contemplation – Take one subject that you are interested in and think about it non-stop for 5 minutes and this is without reacting to anything outside yourself. If your mind wanders then just come back to the contemplation and continue.

3: Affirmations – Affirm to yourself daily powerful and stimulating statements such as “I’m so full of energy.” and these will be like new flowers planted in the garden of your mind instead of those nasty limiting belief weeds!

Try this and then go online and find more information because it is very important that you keep up the momentum of this growth journey that you are obviously on. Keep going and do not stop. Study the laws of the universe and discipline your mind and you will get to the point where you can design a life with just your mind!

Understand the Legal System by Knowing the Law

The laws that we tend to abide by as citizens reflect society’s views and expectations. Our society establishes the rules of our system, both personal and non personal. Everyone wants to be treated fairly, so that’s why we have laws. Laws guide us on the right path set by society, they tell us whether we can or cannot step on that stone, to get to where we need to go.

The Six sources that Govern our Society.

The Bill of Rights

  • The rights to bear arms
  • The right to freedom of speech
  • Protection from unreasonable search and seizure
  • Trial by jury
  • Civil trial by jury
  • Powers of States and people

The Constitution – The measurement of all the law, the land lord of law. The constitution applies to everyone, in which it determines the United States as a republic, and the construction of our congressional system

State – State law gives the state the right to set their own laws, as long as it does not create a problem with federal laws. A lot of times state laws make federal laws more precise.

Administrative – Rules created by regulatory agencies

Statute – law that was set up by the United States congress and by elected officials. These laws are very important in our life, because we are most affected by them. Statue Laws include

  • Credit
  • Traffic Rules
  • Responsibilities in marriage

Common law is law made by judges through decisions and used today as a basis for statutory interpretation and application
