Goal Setting: What impact does applying a Date/Amount have with regards to Law of Attraction?

articles Jan 20, 2020



Given that so many of us are goal-setters, this article is in response to the volume of questions I get about this topic—Goal Setting and Law of Attraction.

Traditional goal-setting asks that you include in your goal some specific dates, times, and amounts. For example, a salesperson may say their goal is to have $5,000 in sales by December 31. Remembering that the Law of Attraction is always responding to your vibrations, what vibration would you be sending if this were your goal? Keep in mind that the Law of Attraction responds to what you say and what you think.

The following two lists offer some thoughts about how goal-setting can help and hinder obtaining goal results.

Here’s what I like about goal-setting:

a) Setting the goal sets the energy in motion.

b) Setting goals helps you get clearer about what you want.

c) Setting and having goals causes you to give deliberate attention to your desire.

Here’s when it may hinder your results:

a) Focusing on where you’re not instead of where you are.

b) Anxiety as you are observe that you’re “not there yet.”

c) Keeping score by saying “I only have 4 days left.”

Can you see and understand how goal-setting may help or hinder your results?

Here’s my suggestion for incorporating Law of Attraction into goal-setting:

Say “I’m in the process of continuously attracting and allowing all that I need to do, know, or have, to earn an abundance in sales.”

The word abundance means different things to different people. For some people, 10 might be an abundant amount, while for others the number 80 may be abundant.

Abundance is a feeling, so by saying that you have an “abundance of…” you know that means that there are plenty, or there are more than you’re used to. It means “lots” to you, without having to put a specific number on your goal.

As you observe that you are attracting ANYTHING that’s in alignment to your goal, celebrate it! And, in the celebration you’ll be sending out a positive vibration that Law of Attraction will respond to.

In short, while observing the positive things that are happening, you’ll create more of the same— it’s all about vibes.
