Like attracts like

Like attracts like; we all invariably attract what we focus on.

When your mind is actively fixed on a particular goal, you seem to be more attuned to people, information and activities related to it. Have you noticed that when you’re thinking about choosing a particular brand of car, you keep noticing that brand everywhere you go? Or if you are expecting a baby, you seem to see more pregnant women than you did before?

Brian says in his seminars that you are a “living magnet”, you invariably attract the right people, ideas and opportunities into your life that are harmonious with your goals.

When you focus on a goal, the reticular activating system (RAS), a part of your brain that functions as a filter to process over four hundred billion bits of information per second that you are exposed to every single day, searches for people, places and circumstances to support what you are thinking about. Simply put, if you have well-defined goals,

RAS will direct your attention towards people, events and opportunities that can help achieve your aspirations.

If you have never experienced positive coincidences, you may be wondering why. Here are a few reasons:

  • You have goals but no burning desire to succeed. You do not put in enough effort to succeed. This gives the Universe mixed signals, indicating you are not sure if these are your true goals.
  • Your desire is not consistent.

• Your action and desires are not aligned.
