The Law of Attraction basically states that โ€œlike attracts likeโ€, so if your thoughts are negative, you will continue to attract negatives into your life as the universe tries to give you more of what you want and more of what you are attracting vibrationally. What does this have to do with setting goals? Everything!

I wrote about setting goals, but there is another piece of this puzzle, and that is staying positive about what you want. Remaining positive, regardless of what outward appearances look like, is the key to successfully attaining your goals.
Many people who start affiliate marketing and/or blogging are hoping to earn money and create an income so that they can give up their jobs. If you are only half-hearted, or give up when things seem bleak you may not be in alignment with what you really want or you may not know how to set goals that are achievable. Let us work on that together!

What are your specific goals?

law of attraction and setting goals
Pin it!

Each goal must be written out clearly; if part of it is vague, then search out what it is that you really want. Ask yourself โ€œif I could have anything in the world, what would I want?โ€ and then ask yourself โ€œwhy?โ€ Feel free to adapt your goals as your understanding of what you want changes, and as you successfully achieve your goals, write up new ones.

Most of the things that we want i.e. a million dollars, are not so much about the money but the feelings that the money will give us. I used to be a person who bought lottery tickets, hoping for that big win. After I started really reading up on LOA, I realized that it was not the money that I really wanted per se, but the feeling of freedom that I wanted. Freedom from going to a 9-5 job, freedom to go anywhere and do anything whenever I wanted. Freedom.

I once read the goals of a successful online entrepreneur, that were stated as โ€œI want to make money from anywhere in the world, while I am travelling. I want to generate money no matter where I amโ€. Those goals resonated with me, and I thought that is what I want! I set that goal, not knowing at the time how I would achieve it. I did a lot of research on how that goal could be achieved, and settled on affiliate marketing, which can be done with a laptop from anywhere in the world.

Measuring The Success of Your Goals

How do I know if what I am doing is bringing me closer to my goals? Well, how do you feel about it? Are things lining up for you? Or do you hit a wall with every move that you make?

You will know that you are in alignment with what you really want when you see that you are progressing down a path, and if every step you take allows you to see a little further down that path. If you are not in alignment, then you must look at your goals again and search for what you really want. Do you BELIEVE that your goal is attainable? Are you staying positive in the reality that you can have what you want?

Another aspect of this is that sometimes as we are busy changing our lives, we find that fear moves into our hearts. We can doubt that what we are doing is good for us. We start to fear that we are making a big mistake. This does not mean that we are not in alignment. I find that when this happens, it is a challenge from the universe on whether I really want what I say I want. I find that it is best to just keep focusing on my goals and remain positive. The last time this happened to me, I pushed through it with positive thinking, and had 2 sales the next day!

Attainability

It is good to write out some of your goals in a backwards timeline, but also in the present tense. For example, in 5 years I am a millionaire; in 3 years from now I am making $100,000.00 a year; In 1 year from now, I am making $50,000.00 a year; this month I will make $4000.00. You can measure your success with this goal every month, which makes it easy to see how it can progress in 1 year. If you earn only $3500.00 in the first month, would you consider this success or failure because you did not reach $4000.00?

Using the above goal, if you do not achieve $4000.00 a month, is there something that you can adjust to increase your income? Is there some action that you can take? Will a little tweaking bring you up to that goal or perhaps beyond? And most importantly, is your goal realistic for you? Can you really believe in this goal? You may have to start with a goal that you believe is more attainable, and once successful with this goal it is easier to up the ante. However, do not be afraid to set big, scary goals because this is how we grow; by learning that we are capable of much more than we (or others) think. It is always up to us and our attitude about our goals that will show whether we will be successful or not.

Relevance

We must keep adjusting our goals as things come into alignment with them. As things happen, and we see the potential of how that will impact our lives, we can change what we want accordingly. Visualize what you want. Immerse yourself in that visualization. See, touch, feel, smell whatever is going on around you, in your mind. You will recognize the things you want, and what you do not want.

If you are having trouble deciding what you want, try writing down on the left hand side of a piece of paper, what you DO NOT want. Then try writing on the right hand side whatever the opposite of that is for you, and then focus on that. Be as detailed as you can be with the items that you DO want.

WHAT I DO NOT WANT
-Abusive relationship

-9 to 5 job

WHAT I DO WANT

-Loving, supportive, partner who inspires me to be myself and loves me for it! Someone who will bring me coffee in the morning!

-Freedom to earn a $10,000.00 a month from anywhere in the world. Ability to travel monthly, and learn new things to write about.

Is It Track-able?

This is the easiest way to see if we are in alignment with our goals. How much success are we having? Write out your goals and then keep this โ€œlistโ€ in a place where you can review it daily and monitor how things are going in your life. If you are in affiliate marketing, this can be measured by whether you have an increase in the number of visitors to your site and whether you are getting any sales in the products that you are reviewing/selling.

You can also measure this by how you feel on any given day. Is your attitude more positive? Do more people seem to gravitate to you because you seem to have become moreโ€ฆfun, happy, positive or just more? Do more people ask for your advice? Do you find that you are not bothered by things that may have bothered you in the past? Do you get better parking spots? Do you get more green lights? Is unexpected money showing up for you? Or other benefits, like people giving you tickets for sold-out events?

Sweet dreams are made from success!

If it seems that things are โ€œgoing your wayโ€ then you are in alignment with the universe. Keep track of these events and how you are reacting and keep testing which elements work the best for you. And as you learn how to make things work for you in your life, remember to share these tips with people who ask you why everything in your life is โ€œsuddenlyโ€ so great, because the best part of being successful is being able to share that success with others. No man (or woman!) is an island!

    1. Hello Lawrence, and thank you for your comments!

      I searched everywhere for a way to make LOA more meaningful for me, and I found it! Feel Good and have clearly set intentions. Choosing goals that say “I am a successful affiliate marketer” is a simple way to feel this truth and have it become real in your life! And be grateful!

      Cheers,

  4. Hi, Irma! Thanks for sharing this useful information! I always knew about the law of attraction, but it seems that I forgot about it from time to time. Now I am doing something about it, and I am trying to be positive. Of course, it doesn’t always happen. ๐Ÿ™‚ In fact, I am sure that I wouldn’t be here if this law doesn’t work.
    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Linda and thank you for stopping by today!

      I think it is more a matter of catching ourselves being negative and working to change that. And especially being hopeful about what we are doing in our lives, and not letting people bring us down. Positive feelings bring positive results!

      Cheers,

  5. The peculiar thing about the Law of Attraction, is that it is always at work, whether you are aware of it or not. Our society likes to put a time frame on it, and if things do not manifest for them in a certain time period, they give up. They also want instructions on how to make it work. Do these instruction exist?

    1. Hi Judith, and thank you for your question/comments,

      The only instructions that I know of that really, really work are to clearly set your intentions – but do not be too rigid in how the results will come to you (in other words do not tie the hands of the universe!), and to work on feeling good all the time. How positive you are, in general, is proportional to how rapidly the universe responds. It is important that you think about why you want what you want, and work on having those good feelings as often as you can in your life. Then the universe gets into alignment with you!

      Cheers,
      Irma ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Setting a realistic and attainable goal clearly defines what one wants to achieve in ones life. I like the point that one should stay aligned with his goal, making adjustments where necessary while still pushing forward to attain it. Very interesting post!

    1. Hello Seth and thank you for your comments!

      I still find that big goals are kind of scary, so I keep working my way up to them!

  7. I love this post! I hope many people will come here and change their lives. Having a positive outlook is essential for success. What you put out in the world is what you will receive back, so staying positive is a win-win for everyone. We should all strive to be more positive, help each other, give back to our communities and become better all around humans. Thank you for writing an amazing post.

    1. Hello and thank you for stopping in and for your lovely comments!

      It is my goal to help people, which I believe is at the heart of most peoples goals. Remaining positive is something that I actively work on, even saying a silent thank you when I get through a drive thru line quickly or get an appointment scheduled when it really works for me. It is a snowball effect of more good things coming my way!

      Cheers,
      Irma ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I love this article. Very inspirational with wise words of encouragement. I also completely agree with you. Negative thinking leads to a negative mindset which leads to very little productivity. With optimism, motivation, and dedication, you are bound to find success in the things you want most! Thanks for this great post! Writing goals are extremely important!

    1. Hi Rob and thank you for your comments,

      I found this out recently when I was doing a return to work to see if I could work with my injury. Everyone was so cranky and negative, with lots of back biting. I realized that I was starting to get anxiety again! It was shocking. I have been off work for 4 months, and in that time I established this website with all of its posts. When I was back to work, I could not get into the head space to write and I was fortunate to have some back up ideas to help me get started. A positive attitude is the cure for what ails you!

  9. Hi Irma, I’ve become a student of the Law of Attraction a few months ago, after devouring everything I could find from Napoleon Hill, then included others like Jim Rohn and am just starting to follow Tim Ferris (who is like a modern-day Napoleon Hill). You’ve packed so much great advice here that anyone can put to use right away.

    I’ve long struggled with having a definite purpose other than what other people decided for me. But as Jim Rohn said, โ€œIf you donโ€™t design your own life plan, chances are youโ€™ll fall into someone elseโ€™s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.โ€

    But better a late start than not at all, right?

    1. Hi Laurie, and thank you for stopping by!

      It has been amazing to me how quickly things pull together when you clearly set your intentions and practice feeling good and being positive. I believe that we can change the world for the better with a positive attitude!
      Setting goals is something that you must do regularly, as your reach your goals and then write new ones! And do not be afraid to reach for the stars, setting goals so big that they scare you.
      I also do a round of tapping (EFT) while sitting in traffic. I do what is called the ho’oponopono, and I just tap wherever, sometimes just on my finger tips, while saying “Thank you” “Thank you” “Thank you for the blessings I have” “Thank you for the blessings I am receiving”, and I repeat whenever I can. I will say it silently while waiting in line, and the line seems to move more quickly. In traffic, I get all green lights, and better parking spots. Gratitude…who knew??

      Cheers,
      Irma ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I recently heard of this idea from a friend and now I’m hearing about it again. It’s funny how the universe works. Much like this post says. Begin first by giving of yourself and the rest will follow. Advice more entrepreneurs should hear and follow. Thank you!

    1. Hi Neil and thank you for your comments!

      I am currently reading “Think and Grow Rich”, which is where many modern Law Of Attraction gurus got their ideas from. Napoleon Hill was mentored by Andrew Carnegie, and was influenced by Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and many other successful business men. The idea of clearly setting your intentions, purposefully feeling good, and giving to others will reward you with the realization of your dreams!

      Cheers,

  11. I’ve actually been reading a lot on the Law of Attraction lately. There are a ton of different books and articles written about it by a lot of very successful people. It seems like anyone who has accomplished their big goals have utilized the power of the LoA either consciously, or unconsciously.

    The best piece of advice that I ever heard on it was to “keep your mind ON the things you want, and keep it OFF the things you don’t want.”

    1. Hi Nick and thank you for stopping in!

      Yes, that is exactly correct. Focusing on the negative just brings more of it to us. I know that when things go wrong for me, part of it is a lack of faith in myself and what I can accomplish!

      Cheers,
