I’ve talked a bit about the Law of Attraction.  I’ve mentioned how it’s important to have faith that the things you wish for will come your way.  Jumping without a net level of faith, even.

That’s a very high level of faith.  And you might think that I’m saying it will only work if you’re willing to put all your eggs in one basket without any concern for the future.  To be clear that is not what I’m saying.

Nothing in the LOA says that you have to put yourself in a tenuous spot for it to work.  Nothing in the LOA says that you can’t prepare a little just in case.

Think of it this way.  The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a pretty fast car.  It can go from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.  So just a little faster than my Prius.  It is a well-built car with many safety features like ABS brakes, traction control, and Active Handling.  So it’s designed to be driven hard while maintaining a good level of safety.  And I like to think of myself as a pretty good driver.  One would think between my good driving skills and the Stingray’s safety features there’s going to be little chance of a crash.  And yet I still put on the seatbelt.

I don’t put on the seatbelt because I don’t have faith in the Stingray’s design.  I don’t put on the seatbelt because I lack faith in my driving skills.  I put on the seatbelt because it’s prudent.  Because no matter how much faith I have in the myself and the Stingray there’s a world out there beyond the two of us that we have to deal with.

So don’t mistake me for saying that if you want to become rich with the LOA you need to take all your money and invest it in something risky because that’s the only way to show true faith in the LOA.  Feel free to invest some money with absolute confidence things will turn out well, but hold a little to the side.  Again it isn’t a lack of faith, it’s just prudence.

The LOA is here to help you, not ruin you by taking unnecessary risks.  Just know that when you do use it that the LOA will provide, and it will.  But feel free to be prudent and wear your seatbelt as the LOA sometimes gives us what we need, not what we asked for.  Have a great day.

As you go about your business today, always keep in mind how you can be of service to others.  Service doesn’t have to be something huge or costly.  Holding the door open for someone walking behind you is being of service.  Smiling at someone who looks like they could use a happy face is being of service.  Simply taking a moment to truly listen to someone is being of service.

There are two reasons to be of service to others. The first, and most important, is it’s kind.  And we should always strive to be kind.  Kindness reflects well on you, and it’s contagious.  There is just never enough kindness in the world, so feel free to spread a little around by being of service.  The second is karma.  You receive from the universe what you give out.  But here’s where it gets tricky.  If you are of service to others because of the expectation of return on investment, then you’re actually being greedy.  And the universe will be greedy towards you as well.  To truly be of service it must be done with generosity, selflessness, and again, kindness.

So as your day progresses and you see an opportunity to be of service, no matter what that opportunity may be, take it.  They’ll be happier.  You’ll be happier.  And that makes the world a happier place.  Have a great day.
