Hey. WOW!! It has been a while since I have posted on my blog. I guess the main reason why is life. I have been busy in my personal and business life, conventional business life.

I have also been learning and trying to figure out the elusive magic of “makincashonline”. It has been a trial and error process. I have made some money and lost some money. But regardless I have learned some valuable lessons. I have learned what the flash in guys do and how to avoid falling for that trap. I have learned that not everybody can be the first in. I have learned that cyclers stall out very quickly no matter how cleverly structured they are. I have learned that 2 x ? matices take forever and a day. I have even learned that “pay it forward” promotions even though they sound great just end up costing you more money to get started before you stop.

Sounds pretty bleak doesn’t it? But all is not lost there are lots and lots of great opportunities out there. Especially if you want to market a lotion or potion or what have you. But with most of those programs you need to typically be on an auto-ship and who wants that? Not me that’s for sure. So what am I excited about these days you may be asking? I do have something. Something I want to share with you. It is something I feel so good about and believe in so much that I took the time to build a website.

I wanted to find something I could do without the need to push products or services on my family and friends. I wanted something I could do and be successful on my own if that had to be the case. I wanted something that could provide both monetary and time leverage. Something that would work 24/7 with a minimal effort from me, I did not want to spend a ton of time doing a given task. I wanted something that would be around for the foreseeable future. I believe I have found not only one such program but two!!

I have been doing these two programs for a little while now and they have been preforming as per their respective claims and program parameters since I started with them. The website I built has general information as well as company approved videos and a start on proof pictures. I will be doing a post featuring my programs in the near future, so I wont be getting into them here now. I will however drop the linkMCO1 to the website so you can check them out there at your leisure. Please feel free to drop me a message and let me know what like best about the programs.

Why Is This Better Than a Lottery Ticket?

People day in and day out buy lottery tickets. They buy just about every conceivable type and style of lottery tickets. People will pay lotto max or whatever provincial or state run lottery system out there. Then there are the federally run lotteries. On top of that there are the countless little quick picks, too numerous to name “scratch card” type that people buy on a whim. In 2012 Americans alone spent $65,500,000,000.00, yup you read that right sixty five and a half billion dollars on lottery tickets in 2012!(1) That number is up a whole 8 billion over the year before! Why?

I believe it is a sign of the times. People are struggling so they are hoping for a solution. They are putting their money on either a random or heavily speculated sequence of numbers. The odds are astronomical to say the least. A typical ticket holder’s odds of winning in a local state lottery are about 18 million to 1 not very promising if you ask me. And then with the Federal Super Lotto your odds jump to staggering 120 million to 1. Wow!! Mind blowing and yet people show up consistently week after week to buy a ticket, because heaven forbid they miss a week and that is the week their numbers come up!! It blows me away that people will put their hopes and faith into a system that is designed to extract their money.

I myself prefer to believe in opportunities and my ability to work them and make them successful. I perfer things that are tangible and is something I can have a chance of controlling. If not completely, at least to some degree. I over the years have tried several opportunities from typical MLM opportunities, to direct selling plans with over rides, to forced matrix systems. And I have had varying degrees of success with certain ones in every type of business model. And obviously I have totally flopped in other versions of the very same models. So needless to say not all that glitters is gold, but, in every case I hand a direct hand in my own successes and my failures.

The concept I get really excited about now is a hybrid between the typical forced matrix designed compensation plans and a standard mlm or multilevel marketing compensation plans. It is the best of both worlds. The speed of a simple small forced matrix and the sustainability of an MLM pay plan. Beautiful!! Now doesn’t that sound about as good as pay plan can get? Second to none I am sure. I think it will be a while before something can come out that will top that.

We have developed our exclusive “TEAM BUILD” rotator, so, now even if you have tried every other deal out there and have no one left that will even answers the phone when call, or you are that person that has never made a dime on line, or even a complete introvert, YOU can be successful with our system.

Decisions Decisions Decisions!!

There are so many business and financial opportunities out there these days, what is one to do! How does one decide what they should do? Do I invest my money at risk? Do I do my next start up? These are some serious questions you need to consider before you jump into anything.

Let’s look at investments first. No I am no broker or self-guided guru, like most people out there, so I rely on the experience and guidance of others. This method has its pro’s and con’s. With brokerage firms you are guided by their alleged experience and expertise. Hopefully they have a long running track record of successful gains for their clients. But past performance is no guarantee of future gains, and those returns have to be high enough to stay profitable after commissions and capital gains on the principle. But even with the best companies that can be difficult.

So investing can be good if you have the right firm or opportunity and enough money to put in that you can afford to risk loses or heaven forbid you lose the whole shot on a high risk high yield deal. Because of those reasons I tend to say out of investments.  This can seem good to people but when the negative happens it can be devastating to people. And loses can be devastating, trust me.

So with that being said, and tried, I tend to prefer something that I can have some control in. Business opportunities. With business opportunities they are very vast in scope and cost. I have done several over the years. I have done a few business startups from scratch. These were mostly I the construction industry and it is very hard to build up something big enough that you can sell or have be something that you take a back seat to and have a secure retirement from. With that realized I got into a bricks and mortar style of business, started that from scratch, built it up to something and sold it at a profit.

I took those profits and looked at a typical franchise set up. That was kind of fun, they have their benefits but they also have their down sides. The benefits are you are branded by the parent corporation and you can usually get better purchasing power via the association. The down side you not free to direct your business at your leisure you must follow the corporate structure. It is difficult to be flexible to local business environs and market situations as corporate has to consider all franchisees regardless of location and everything must be even across the board. The plus side is a structured success formula that should work for most people, the down side is the typical pricey upfront set up costs. I was able to afford that and it was fun and profitable and I still enjoy an income stream from it as I was in the position to finance the sale of it for the new purchaser. And a foot note on that is hopefully that does not come back to bite me, as nothing is for certain.

So now I look at stuff that does not require a heavy up front cost. I like stuff that can help more people get into a positive financial situation. I like that with these type of business opportunities you are not corralled by franchise marketing and operational/territorial regulations. You can be creative in your marketing and acquisition of customers and/or partners. The only rules are that you follow ethical business practices and do not mislead people you are talking to. These opportunities tend to follow the honesty is the best policy and the do unto others as you would have them do unto you principles which sit just fine with me. I can get behind an industry that is built with those guidelines.

If you are looking to build and ethical profitable business and are not scared of a little hard work I would be happy to work with you to achieve all that you can possible achieve. I offer a no pressure opportunity for you to fully consider the ins and outs of what I do. I am here to answer all of your questions and if you decide to join me I am here to help you in any way I can be as successful as you desire.

Have an amazing day!

Cheers.

The More It Works The Better I Like It

I know I just posted a blog yesterday about building a rapport with someone first before you drop you big sales bomb on them. But I have to say it is the “bomb”! And in this the bomb is a good thing.

Yesterday I blogged under the title of “Why cant you get anyone to join you??”. And in the blog I was talking about how to ease people into joining you with a small win first. I have learned that you need to introduce them to a small ticket sell item that people will find a good value from so they can feel good about doing business with you. Image

I been studying the secrets of online selling for a while now, and that is one of the more prevailent concepts in the industry. The reasoning is that the people you are meeting online do not know you at all. So to come right out with your primary business “buy now” it’s only $200, $300 or $400 or even more dollars get in, join me now will blow most people out. Sure you may get lucky and get maybe 1 in 1000 to jump in with you, but those are long odds. Not to mention the exstensive contacts lists you would need to acquire or purchase to blast through those numbers.

So the thinking is if you can have a good value low cost introductory item to present to people, they, your new contacts can try the water with you for just a few dollars. If your low cost product or introductory opportunity is of good value or a quick return on investment, now they have faith in you and/or your ability.  So now when you want to approach them with your primary idea they are much more receptive to your concept because you have previously shown them value and/or earnings already.

I know myself I am going to be more willing to listen to some one who has already shown me how to make money when he/she wants to show something new. I have experienced that personally, the people I have done business with that I have a favourable outcome with I am more apt to join again. The same is also true for those that I have shown opportunities to, the ones that got in with me and made money will join me again and those that did not, seem to never be home when I call.

So find your thing that is of good value and of low cost that most people will benefit from the use of or exposure to and start to make your online millions today.

If you are stuck for something like I was feel free to use the one I do.

All the best to you!!

HOLY COW!! Those are some pretty big cuts coming!

 

I don’t know if you have had a chance to keep up on the news. I was listening to news story yesterday on CBC Radio, Canada’s official news radio, which stated that America was going to make some massive cuts in government spending. I was blown away by the size of the cuts.

85 Billion dollars to be cut from government spending. They are cutting from the federal budget. These cuts are going to be across the board, so no service sector will be spared. They are anticipating 750,000 jobs will be cut. These are all good paying positions.

I remember people saying to me, get yourself a good secure government job, you will be set for life. I guess that reasoning is no good anymore. It goes to show how trying these times are.

Three quarter of a million jobs gone just like that, good paying jobs with benefits and retirement packages. The drop in supporting businesses revenue may result in further layoffs. Not to mention the loose of the disposable income that these jobs provided into the communities.

The real lesson here is that you cannot count on any type of job for security anymore. People will just have to wake up to the idea that you must provide your own security in life. Working for someone else, though easy to do, have zero security. When things get tough they will cut you from the bottom line to persevere. It is just common business practices and the government are just now learning the lesson.

So what is a person to do? Well the number one best solution is to start a business of your own. A home based business is the best type to start as the start up cost is typically smaller than conventional business start ups. Not to mention the overhead required before you can realize a profit is very small with home based businesses.

I have been in home based businesses now for several years and have added quite nicely to my annual income streams. Not to mention the tax savings that a business affords you. By building a home based business I have diversified my income streams. So if my conventional business slows down, which it does from time to time, I don’t sweat it as I have a  couple of other sources of income coming in.

These home based businesses have allowed to get virtually debt free, live just a little better on a day to day bases.  We seem to run out of month now before we run out of money. It has allowed us to afford several vacations a year. All these things were unthinkable a few years back before I got started in this awesome industry. My wife used to hate me joining up in these deals, but she is pretty happy about it now.

I just want to let you know there is a better way out there, a better way to earn money, a better way to structure your earnings and expenditures, a better way to just live your life.

I have two main home based businesses that I highly recommend, they are working well for me, and they will work well for you.

Firstly is my Beachbody business that you can find out more about at http://glenmcdonald.biz

And secondly is a my online advertising business to learn more about this on click here http://bannersbroker.com/getfreewithglen

Or you can contact me via email at getfreewithglen@live.com

In closing I would like to say I hope the new round of cuts do not affect you or at least not too harshly if they do touch you. I hope you find some sound advice in my blog and take the bull by the horns and provide you and your family with the only true security and start your own business today.

 

I cannot believe this. I could not imagine this happening, can you?

Work your life, forty five maybe fifty years and then you retire to enjoy your so called “Golden Years” and it is ripped away from you because you are still carrying debt with you!! I was saddened and maddened when I read that. What has our society come to when that the average person cannot make money enough in his or her working years that they have to manage a debt load in retirement? Thinking about that blew me away. I couldn’t imagine trying to pay down debt on forty percent of what I couldn’t live on when I was working. It is no wonder so many elderly people look so down trodden.

 

The article was talking numbers like, of the people not retired yet but are over fifty-five about two thirds of are still in debt. Half of all retirees are still on the hook for about twenty-five thousand dollars and one sixth of all retirees are owing a staggering one hundred thousand dollars or more. These are current stats Canada numbers here. It has me concerned for the generation coming up to retirement. If our parents couldn’t pull off retirement debt free and have a little buffer to keep them going and we are doing what they did how are we going to fair any better?

 

I have actually been concerned about it for a while now. I will not be a sad statistic we I am retired so I have decided to be pro-active. I am employing some strategies which are starting to pay off already. I have read some books that have taught me to be my own boss. There are definite advantages to risk and reward. You are either working on your goals and dreams or you are working on someone else’. But rest assured some ones retirement is going to be better because of your actions, the only question is who’s? Business ownership is the best and surest way to secure your future. Not all businesses are created equal and some are definitely better than others. All businesses allow for tax write offs, and let me tell you it is a lot better to pay for things with pre-tax dollars than after-tax dollars. But that is just the beginning.

 

Some businesses are very time consuming, and please don’t confuse self employment as a true business. I spent several years doing that, they are good and can be more lucrative than a typical job. While I was reading a book called the “Cash flow Quadrant” I realized that real business had to be independent of my efforts alone. Meaning that for true wealth and freedom into your golden years your business must be leveraged on the efforts of others. So how do we all get freedom if we have to gain our freedom on the backs of others, wont some people have to be poor so others can be rich? Well there actually is a business model where everyone can succeed. Enter referral marketing, direct selling or network marketing whatever you feel comfortable calling it. This industry allows for leverage to take place over time making it possible for people to enjoy true residual passive income well into their retirement years and even beyond.

 

The start up cost is typically very small, so most everybody can afford to get involved. The products and services are usually of a very high quality so that people will use them and continue to use them for years and years to come. The model is very simple find a product or service you can believe in and start to use it yourself and over time find others who will benefit from the use of these phenomenal products. As they start to use the products and share with people how great the products are the network starts to grow. As it grow so does your passive override commissions and as the products get used and re-ordered by a growing team of users and consumers so grows your residual income. But not just your income because everybody who joins is the head of their business they too are growing a leveraged income just like you. That is the best system out there in my mind to help everybody gain financial freedom. Team work makes the dream work!

 

I remember when I was a kid; I think it was a shampoo company that explained it the best. They showed a girl using their product and she liked and told two friends, and the TV screen split into two images. And then they told two friends and the screen split again, now four images and they told two and the screen images double again. Now let that happen again and again and again till there are a thousand people or more all using the products you introduced to first few people. And now imagine your are receiving a small override passive residual income off of all those sales no matter how big it grows for the lifetime of the company. That my friend is true wealth creation that is lifestyle freedom that is retirement. The only question is when do you get started and how fast do you want to get to retirement?

 

I am doing it and it is working great. I am, this spring, selling my conventional business because my networking business has been consistently paying me more and it is growing. I am really excited about my future and where it is taking me, I highly recommend to everyone they seriously check this fast growing industry out.

Holiday Season Wrapping Up

 

I don’t know about you but I really enjoy the holidays. I enjoy the family and friends. I enjoy the laughter and stories. Seeing people I may have not seen in a while. I enjoy the noise and the chaos. I even enjoy the hectic pace needed to pull it all off. I definitely over enjoy all the amazing treats and meals and goodies and drinks that are so abundant during the festive times.

 

But I am also looking forward to the big wind down in the New Year. The holidays are great to see coming and to enjoy when they are happening and they, for me, are equally great to see leave.

 

I know I have not done myself any favors this week and a half. I can feel it. I know that on January first I can call a stop to it all for another six month. Why six months you ask? Simple BBQ season kicks it June twentieth! Father’s Day! The most important day of the year! Well ok second only to Mother’s Day. I can usually spread myself out a bit better during BBQ season. It is like three months long here, longer if you don’t mind Q’ing in a jacket. I mean you can go year round if you don’t mind shovel the snow off the Q.

 

I have my new exercise regime mapped out, got my nutritional supplements in supply. Have my workout room ready even, Bowflex Blaze, a decent treadmill and a DVD player in the room. Gonna put all three of those bad boys through their paces every day! Also, I am going to be hitting some awesome cardio and endurance training with Thai Cheng and P90X workout programs. This year IS going to be the year I get myself back in shape. I am dedicated to making this happen like never before. I am sick and tired of being out of shape. In fact my body is completely the wrong shape. I have corrected it a bit already with my past activities, this new program is going to trump it all.

 

I will be logging my progress for my own selfish reasons, like smiling and gloating. Just kidding, I will be tracking my progress so I can see how I have improved and see what has worked better and what may need some tweaking. I will also share my results with you if on my site if you like.

Before 1

This is my before picture, kind of resemble an Alfred Hitchcock profile! Scared the crap out of me when I put that realization together! To be completely honest I was actually a little bigger than this picture shows before I took my before.  I lost a little bit of weight just by stopping my fast food addiction. Then I lost a little bit more using a nutritional product. My new program is a mix of nutrition and exercise. Now I know you might be thinking “good deduction Watson”. But believe it or not most people are overwhelmed on how do that when they have not been in that environment all along. These programs and products are designed for everybody at every level of fitness to get started and improve their health. I am obviously starting from a place of “HELP” and other may be in better shape, worse shape, or even excellent shape, and this program has products and services everyone will benefit from.

 

If you want to read more about my journey and what I am doing check out this link: http://www.teambeachbody.com/212glen

There is a more current picture of me there that shows some of my progress so far, with my earlier program. If I had success with my earlier program, why did I decide to change? Well the earlier program was just about nutritional supplements only. So when I stopped them or where away from them for a while, I started to put the weight back on immediately. The new program combines exercise and nutrition, so you are actually developing a lifestyle change. And when you make a lifestyle change it stays with you better. Further to that by combining proper nutrition and exercise, if you happen to be away from one side of it for a while the other is still there and vice versa.

So that is why I am so stoked about this program and why I know this one will be the one I will do for the rest of my life!

 

 

Here’s to Your Good Health!

 

So you try to eat right. You are eating a few servings of fruits and veggies every day. You try to three proper meals a day. But you find you are feeling sluggish, tired or even burnt out! Well it is NOT your fault.

If you are most people out there you have a very hectic schedule. You get up way earlier than you would like to. You are spending on average about one and half hours in your morning commute. So to allow you a few extra minutes in bed you skip a nutritious breakfast and grab a large coffee and a processed fast food breaky item off the drive threw menu. That is your first major and potentially deadly mistake of the day.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I bet three quarters of us mess it up daily by age twelve, if not earlier.  Think about it, when was the last time you had a sit down, home cooked breakfast made of wholesome natural ingredients that covered all the food groups? Be honest. Except for a few special occasions the answer would most likely be never. You see even if you try to eat right the food today grown is these huge mass agri-farms is actually almost ninety percent less nutritionally dense as the same product grown just thirty years ago. You need to eat about eight oranges to get the same level of nutrients just one orange had on grandpa’s tree.

So you know and I know most people are not snacking on celery and carrot sticks. Some are eating a piece of fruit at least, but most of us are grabbing a chewy bar or packaged cookies from the vending machine in the hall. There is death blow number two, and we haven’t had lunch yet.

In today fast paced no time to make a good lunch world we live in, we are still brown bagging it, it is just not coming from home.  Enter the fast food epidemic. How many of us are guilty of that, one two, three, five times a week. I would bet more of us than like to admit it. I know I was victim of the fast food ease and I was an even opportunity fast food consumer. I changed it up almost daily. Those meals are the worst thing you can eat during your day. Don’t kid yourself with the salad option either. Look them up, that should scare you off them.

Afternoon snack venturing a guess here that it is not more carrot sticks. Probably, more likely to be a chocolate bar or a bag of chips to keep up the carbs and sugars to get you through the afternoon push. Add that to your morning coffee with too much sugar and heavy cream, your one or two processed drinks during the day, heaven forbid you drink water, and now you are ready to have delicious nutritious dinner. Right?

Wrong! You had every intention of going home and cooking a good meal. But the hour and a half commute beat that idea out of you. So when you are thirty minutes from home you call your favorite pizza place or bucket of chicken or whatever takes out place you haven’t had that week yet and make your order. Even if you can resist the take out option, when you get home you most likely to pull out some easy to cook processed meal instead. Again not really your fault, you’ve just spent twelve hours to get paid for eight.

In the next decade of doing this, and with less and less exercise your body starts to show the wear and tear. You are out of shape, probably packing around twenty, thirty, fifty or more pounds. You are feeling sluggish and tired. You go see your doctor and he says, you are showing beginning signs of type two diabetes. You are down and depressed, so you turn to the comfort foods that got you there in the first place.  But that, my friend, is the worst thing you could do. You need to turn this ship around! Now! And you can do it.

How? It’s too late! I was fat, out of shape and I don’t know how either! But I found a solution and I can help you. You see my story is not too far off from this one. I was eating the way I described above. I gained about fifty – sixty pounds of unwanted fat. I felt sluggish and burnt out. I didn’t go to the doctor when I started feeling weird from time to time because I didn’t want her diagnosis. I knew I had to change my ways. I stopped eating the fast food. I replaced two meals a day with a proper nutritious shake, just like more and more doctors are recommending. I started to feel better surprisingly fast. My energy went up. I felt good. I started to lose some weight. My days when my body felt weird stopped happening. I dropped about thirty five pounds. I found myself making better choices, when it came to what was going in my mouth.

I did the shake only program for about a year. It was good, it got me started on a better path, but it wasn’t the total answer.  I would lose some weight, I would feel better, and then I would gain a bit back, and then lose it again. I was just not getting any further with my program. I was getting frustrated. Then I heard about another program. This program is a complete program. Quality nutrition, various exercise programs from novice to extreme, a community to help you succeed, even a meal plan program to help make better easy eating decisions. Even if you feel you need to reset your health from the inside out there is a high quality cleanse program that may just be the right place to start for you. I am just getting started with this program, and I can already see the benefits of membership. I am so looking forward to my complete lifestyle change. I know without question if I can do it so can you. I would like nothing more than to have you join me in creating a better healthier fitter life for you and me.

 

“Progress always involves risk. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.”
—Frederick Wilcox

 

 

This is an awesome quote. I try to find an inspirational quote every day. I really like this one. It resonated with me today.

Progress always involves risk! This is so true. It is as true today as it was the day you first tried pulling yourself up by the coffee table. I am not referring to the last time you were so drunk that you fell down in the living. I am talking about when you were a wee pittance, and you decided it was time to try standing up on own two legs just like all the big people in your life.  This maneuver was not easy. It was very risky, your legs were shaky, your grip was not the best, but you did it anyway. Why? Because you decided the reward of standing was worth more to you than the risk of falling. You had a look of utter determination on your face. You were focused, nothing else going on around you mattered. You didn’t give a rip what anybody thought. You were going to stand by that table on your own power if you had to fall again and again.

You did it till you persevered! You ran that risk again when tried to run for the first time. Again, when you wanted to ride a bike. Learn to swim. Ask that first special person out. Drove your first car, you see the list goes on and on. You have accepted risk over and over and over again throughout your whole life. Even to this day you take unconscious risks every day. You run a risk getting out of bed, taking a shower, crossing the street. But for some crazy reason a lot of us decide that some risk is too risky.

You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first. I love this analogy. It really puts it in perspective. We take all kinds of risks, but for some reason we won’t steal second. Why? Is it because we might fall on our face? We have proven in our first year we can beat that one. And what if we do? So what. Just do what you did when we were young, get up brush off our knees, shed a tear even if needed, but get back on it and try again. This time with a little experience and insight though I am sure.

So in today’s economy we know you need to be in business for yourself. You need the legit tax write-offs that can save you potentially thousands of taxable dollars at tax time. But more importantly the equal opportunity to succeed! To earn, potentially more money than you have ever earned in your life before now, if that is your goal. Enjoy a standard of living only dreamed about. It is funny, actually sad is a better word, to me how so many people will get involved in an incredible opportunity and then let the invalidated fear that their friend may think what they are doing is stupid so they never make a move. Don’t let other peoples opinion matter to you one little bit. See I look at the person I am talking to like this, what I am going offer is worth more than what they have to offer me, so why would I let their opinion of my goals and dreams matter. If they don’t want to join me in my success journey and reach greater and grander destinies with me, well it sucks to be them.

You see I have decided that I am going forward on my goals and dreams, and I do not need their approval to get there. I would love for them to join me so we can enjoy the rewards together, but they are not the decider if I am going. I have already made the decision to pull myself up. Maybe, they need to see the rewards of my risk before they venture out and risk for themselves. Either way it’s all good. I have met with neigh Sayers in just about everything I have done in my life. I have gone ahead with my desires win or lose. I have won some and lose some. But I can tell you this straight up I have zero regrets. Not one. Even the ventures that did not pan out financially for me I won intellectually. The only way to truly lose is to never risk at all.

 

So grab life with both hands and pull yourself up. I look forward to hearing how you risked and won.

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

The idea of attraction is instantly appealing to most people. Attraction is about bringing something toward you, almost like a magnetic pull. The idea of a magnetic energy drawing something toward you is at the heart of the law of attraction.

Now imagine what you could bring into your life if you knew how to direct that magnetic pull. When The Secret hit bookshelves, it revived an age-old concept. It’s nothing new. The idea has floated around for centuries, seemingly forgotten except by a few, then is always revived over time.

Some say it came from Hinduism. There’s a definite link to James Allen ‘s 1902 book, As a Man Thinketh . Allen’s title came from a Bible verse that says, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” For Allen, the heart was merely an extension of desires, goals and dreams ¬which could be fulfilled by attracting anything that is wanted or needed.

Rhonda Byrne, author of the blockbuster 2006 movie The Secret , admits that her inspiration came after reading The Science of Getting Rich , written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910.

Once again, the simple attraction concept of Ask, Believe, and Receive is back in the limelight. What we call the Law Of Attraction had several names during the 20th Century such as New Thought, Science of the Mind, Positive Thinking, Metaphysics and Prosperity Thinking.

If you look at these names and the writings about them, you’ll see that this idea flowed throughout the years in one form or another -yet all hold claim to the idea that you can attract what you want or need if you practice the correct approach.

What is the right approach to attract your desires, goals and dreams? To begin, you have to understand that what you want or need is all around you. It’s like picking fruit -you won’t get peaches from an oak tree.
You have to recognize where peaches are and be properly positioned to reach those peaches on the tree. You also have to know exactly what kind of fruit you want. This is an overly simplistic way of showing how you must be in touch with your own desires before you can attract what you want.

The universe is a complex system that’s extremely orderly. The design of the universe is claimed in various religious beliefs, yet even the scientific community joins in the agreement that the universe is orderly.
To be orderly, there must be certain Universal Laws. Remember the “if … then”” rules in science class? If you pour this chemical into the beaker along with that substance, then you will have an explosion.

The Law of Attraction pays careful attention to the “if … then” order of the Universe.

The more scientific thinkers in this movement insist that the Law of Attraction is an element of Quantum Physics. After all, Quantum Physics is a study of the impact of energy on matter.

So if the Law of Attraction could teach you to focus your energy on what you want or need, then those things (made of matter) could be drawn to you. It’s like becoming a human tractor beam, locking onto something and bringing it to you.

Whether the Law of Attraction is part of Quantum Physics or not, the essence of how to make it work for you is summed up in the three words; Ask, Believe, and Receive.

I will continue with more on the “Law of Attraction” in tomorrow’s blog entry.  It you about the power of the ask, the believe, and the receive.
