One of the most surprising things I've learned about the Law of Attraction over the years is how you can get more by doing less.
A little goes a long way.
The Law of Attraction isn't about doing everything you can to manifest your dreams. It isn't about making the perfect vision board, saying 100 affirmations 3 times a day, or visualizing for hours on end.
When you try to do EVERYTHING possible to manifest something, you overload yourself. After a while, you are disappointed, frustrated, and burnt out.
It's a trap where you set yourself up for failure. You don't thrive under such conditions, so how do you expect to succeed with the Law of Attraction?
The act of doing so much indicates you are focused on how your goal will manifest – which is the Universe's job, not yours.
You're trying to make your dream manifest, instead of allowing it to happen.
Stop making the Law of Attraction a to do list that has so many demands upon you. Start setting yourself up for success.
Here are some tips to make you more successful at manifesting:
1. Instead of trying to do everything, do the things you enjoy the most. They will produce the biggest results.
Start off by committing to your favorite item. If you get all excited and lit up when you create a vision board, then go make the best vision board possible. Or if you love to visualize and tapping into the feeling that what you want has already manifested, then go experience the most kick-ass visualization you can.
You don't have to do more tasks, but you can for extra credit. But only do them so long as you enjoy them. The second manifesting begins to feel like work, step back and reassess. Recommit to only doing what makes you happiest.
2. Use the 80/20 rule to your advantage. The 80/20 rule states that 80% of your activities provide you 20% of your results, while 20% of your activities yield 80% of your results. Those 20% activities have the biggest impact. Focus on doing them.
What activities have resulted in your biggest manifesting success in the past? Put your energy into doing them. Don't worry about the rest. You will free up time and prevent yourself from becoming burdened and overwhelmed. You can do other manifesting activities if you want, but you don't have to.
3. Stop trying to be perfect with the Law of Attraction. Nothing will create blocks to manifesting your desire like trying to do everything perfectly. It doesn't matter if you get it right the first time or the 10,000 time.
You will get better at manifesting over time. Take the pressure off and treat each experience like practice. You can make adjustments and improve. But you might also have manifesting success come from a “mistake.”
Manifesting and the Law of Attraction aren't a job.
They aren't something you have to do. They're something you're supposed to enjoy doing.
It's the enjoyment that creates…
So focus on manifesting from a place of fun and joy, and you'll start creating room for the Universe to gift you what you want.
