Many people believe in " the law of attraction" and apply it every aspect of their life whether relationships, finances, health or professional success. I can't confirm or deny this phenomenon but I can share with you how I feel it applies to my own life.
I have been on a vertical learning curve the past few years. I earned my M.A. after not having been in university for 40 years. After 27 years in education I created a new business for myself in the form of my private practice in psychotherapy and counselling. And above all, my life is filling up with many new people I would never previously have come across.
In the every day challenge of establishing one's credentials and expertise, it is not uncommon to be kept at arm's length by others who may be more established. I'm sure that has happened to me but much more have I been mentored, encouraged, supported, complimented. So many people have been so generous with their advice, knowledge, suggestions and even further contacts. People I never knew have agreed to meet with me, have shared their own experiences and have in some cases, even referred clients to me. When someone recently asked me why I would bother meeting someone they happened to know in another context, I immediately thought of how generous other people have been to me and that it's become my pleasure and obligation to "pay it forward".
I can't tell you if I have become a poster child for the "law of attraction" but I can tell you that being open to others, being kind and generous and allowing a positive light into your life can really do wonders. I recommend it highly!!
