There are many great ways to incorporate the Law of Attraction into your life. Here are two powerful, time tested tools that will enable you to utilize this universal principle to its fullest. Each of these self growth tools is a proven success blaster that works on several levels to help you make meaningful and lasting changes in your life.

1. Affirmations -- A strong affirmation is the single most powerful manifesting tool that you can use to help create change in your life. Affirmations are simply statements about the life that you desire or the person that you want to become. You write them out and then read them aloud two or three times a day, especially first thing in the morning. When you read your affirmations aloud to yourself you are literally ‘affirming’ to yourself exactly what you wish to become, exactly what you wish to manifest into your life.

Good affirmations are always related to your current goals and are always written in the present tense, as if you already possess the thing you desire. Always begin your affirmations with the words, “I am...” or “I enjoy...”, or for an even more powerful statement try, “I am grateful that...”, and then follow that with your goal or dream. The trick with affirmations is to turn your wants into your haves.

Here are some examples:

Let’s say that you want to lose weight. The wrong way to word your affirmation is to simply say, “I want to lose weight.” A more powerful statement would be, “I enjoy good health and vibrant energy by making healthy eating choices.”

Another common goal that many of us share is increased abundance, primarily in the financial area of life. Again, the wrong way to word your affirmation would be to say something like, “I want to be rich.” Instead, you need to frame your desires as if you have already attained it. “I am grateful for the abundance that flows into my life. I am proud of the savings and investment habits I have developed that have allowed me to amass a net worth of one million dollars.”

Get the idea? Great. Once you have created a set of affirmations that reflect your dreams you need to put them somewhere where you will be sure to see them and read them every morning when you get up and again every evening before you go to bed. Put them on the nightstand near your bed, or tape them to the bathroom mirror.

Affirmations are an amazing way to program yourself for success and will help you move onto the path toward your dreams.

2. Your Dream Card -- A dream card is nothing more than an index card or piece of paper on which you have written your top three or four goals and dreams, and that you carry with you and read many times during the course of the day. Your dream card is similar to your affirmations but differs in several fundamental ways.

Just like affirmations, you write your dream card in the present tense, as if you already possess whatever it is that you are trying to manifest in your life. Affirmations, however, tend to focus on traits and abilities that you seek to develop in yourself, while your dream card is the place to put the dreams and goals that you are seeking to manifest in your life.

Your dream card is the place to put that new car you want, or that better job, or even that special relationship that you desire in your life. Remember, even though these are things that you ‘want’, you shouldn’t use the word ‘want’ at all on your dream card. You have to create positive statements that reflect you already in possession of your dream. State your dreams boldly and positively. Combine several goals into one powerful statement that reflects the achievement of each of them.

Try something like, “I love driving my brand new, metallic grey, Lincoln Continental to my new position as Vice President of Marketing for one of the top firms in my state.” Change it around to include your specific dreams. Be sure to include at least three or four of your top dreams on your dream card.
Here is the most important part, the one aspect of the dream card that helps you actually manifest your desires. You have to carry your dream card with you at all times, and you have to pull it out and read it as often as you can. Every day. No exceptions. Every day. Even after you have memorized what is written on your card you still need to physically pull it out of your pocket or purse and read it to yourself. Do this at least a dozen times a day.

Every time you read your dream card to yourself you are telling your subconscious mind what is important to you. Your subconscious mind can be your greatest ally in your growth, and can find connections and opportunities to achieve your dreams that your conscious mind might miss.

Affirmations and dreams cards both work by helping you focus and train your subconscious mind on those things that you want to bring into your life. The law of attraction tells us that we can only attract to us those things that we focus on the most, but t he main reason that many people struggle to achieve their dreams is that they only focus on their dreams occasionally.

If you are serious about creating change in your life you should be using both of these proven tools each day. When you do, you will dramatically increase your manifesting ability and begin to see amazing results in your life.
