The Law Of Attraction Needs The Law Of Perspiration

The Law Of Attraction does not work without The Law Of Perspiration!

I bring this up because I feel there’s  a lot of talk about the power of manifesting – and “doing positive affirmations” and “doing positive visualizations!”

I’m a big believer in the powers of positivity – and focusing on what you want.

But… we also need to remember that although positive energy is helpful, so is inputting lots of proactive energy.

True Confession…

Before I got published, there were many times I was ready to give up on writing my first book (a novel)  — many times when I was exhausted, frustrated, or doubtful – or some dizzying Combo Cocktail of all of these.

Each time I was ready to give up I’d tell myself, “Right now another writer is giving up!”

I then told myself that if I kept on going, then I’d be that much closer to being an author who catches a publishing house’s eye – instead of a writer with regrets.

I’d motivate myself the same way I do when running long distances.

I’d tell myself to just try to get to the next tree.

Then I’d get to the next tree of my book writing – and keep running.

I was determined. I had made the internal decision: I will be published, dammit!

I even went to book stores and envisioned my book on the shelf – and realized my last name of Salmansohn would make my book a neighbor to Salinger.

Although this positive thinking created lots of Law Of Attraction positive energy, it alone was NOT what got me published.

In the end I thank the Law Of Perspiration for my becoming a published author.

I credit pushing myself to keep on learning and keep on growing as a writer.

I credit constantly challenging myself to try to write more emotionally deeper – attempt to become more vulnerable.

I didn’t simply think my way into becoming published.

I sweated my way into becoming published.

I kept on writing, re-writing, re-re-re-re-rewriting.

I pushed myself out of my comfort zone!

I allowed myself to feel a lot of temporary pain before I saw any kind of longterm gain.

As a result, I’m a big believer that a comfort zone is a nice place to visit – but true growth and happiness happens outside of it.

Basically, as I stated up top – The Law Of Attraction is awesome! I definitely am a believer in its powers! But it alone will not get you where you want to be. Y

ou need to be ready to team up The Law Of Attraction with The Law Of Perspiration.

If you ever want to get a lot – you gotta be willing to sweat a lot.

Think happier. Think calmer.
