Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

LOAlogoBLOGThis is post 282 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.

I hear people say that they’re wishing and hoping and praying (that was a song!) for someone or some outside circumstances to give them a break so they can manifest what they want. I hear it as lot from creatives. Musicians keep hoping that someone will hear their music and offer them a record or management deal. Artists, writers, musicians, etc. wish for someone to discover them but do nothing pro-active to make it happen. Many people are waiting for someone to give them their big break. The Law of Attraction doesn’t respond well to that.

Waiting for your break can create negative emotions:

•    Frustration when nothing happens.
•    Disappointment that you’ve waited so long for your break but nothing manifested.
•    Desperation as you wonder why God doesn’t want to help you.
•    Hopelessness that makes you consider giving up.

You need to give yourself your big break! If the Universe sees you waiting and hoping but not taking any action it won’t believe you want it badly. If you do what you can to get the deal, the job, the romantic partner, the great apartment, your vibration reflects your desire more so it’s easier to manifest. Being pro-active gets you into a good place to get your break.

Your perfect opportunity will rarely come along if you do nothing to make it happen. It’s up to you to do things that will increase you chances of getting the big break you want.

Years ago I met a talented singer/songwriter. He lamented that he’d written over 150 songs in his studio in the basement of his home but couldn’t get a break. I asked what he’d been doing. He said he kept writing and recording more songs and saying prayers for getting a break. I explained that no one would find him in his basement and suggested he get out and network. He joined a songwriter group and made some good contacts. He loved interacting with the other songwriters. Instead of reflecting hopelessness, his vibration reflected his excitement about his music and eventually he got a publishing deal for some of his songs.

You have to give yourself the best chance to manifest your dreams by putting in some work. Wishing and hoping and praying is not enough to create a good vibration for the Law of Attraction to pick up. If you wait for conditions to be perfect before taking action, you’ll be waiting a long time. It’s rare that someone hands a break to someone who did nothing to attract it. Manifest your own breaks by doing what you can to make it happen. Then the Law of Attraction has some ammo to assist you!
