Law of Attraction in Action: Pride

LOAlogoBLOGThis is post 262 in my series on the Law of Attraction in Action. You CAN use your power to manifest your desires. I do it every day! Read all the posts in my Law of Attraction in Action Series to see how.

Some people view feeling pride as a negative quality. I’ve had clients who excitedly share an accomplishment with me but when I ask if they’re feeling proud and letting others know their mood changes. They’re afraid people will react badly to their show of pride. I hear:

•    “Someone may get jealous and not like me.” Don’t you want friends who are happy for you?
•    “It may sound like bragging, which turns people off.” Feeling good about what you’ve done or earned isn’t bragging. It’s owning yourself.
•    “Don’t people like us more when we’re modest?” That’s a DoorMat/people pleaser mentality of worrying that everyone will like you!

Pride makes you excited, which creates a good vibration for the Law of Attraction to pick up on. Stifling it doesn’t. Owning pride makes you feel very good about your path and ability to reach your goals. It fuels your vibration so the Law of Attraction can work with you. Not feeling pride tells the Universe that what you already manifested didn’t matter to you, so it’s harder to attract more.

Red Aurbach said, “Take pride in what you do. The kind of pride I’m talking about is not the arrogant puffed-up kind; it’s just the whole idea of caring – fiercely caring.” “Fiercely caring” feeds the vibration you need to keep getting desires met. So if you want to manifest more, joyously own what you’ve already done, let your pride rise to the surface. And if someone doesn’t like it, you don’t need that person in your life.

Love yourself enough to know that you deserve to feel pride and that you are more important than the person who is jealous or judging you unfairly. Let the Law of Attraction bring you more to feel proud of!
