There are at least three Laws of Attraction. A “law” is something that works whether you believe in it or not, like the law of gravity. Whether you believe in gravity or not is irrelevant. Gravity doesn’t care whether you believe or not, it still works.
The 3 Laws of Attraction are:
- Like Attracts Like
- Nature Abhors a Vacuum
- The Present is Always Perfect
From these three laws there are a number of corollaries which are extrapolations from the original law. Then, there are a number of simple steps or coaching tips you can use to apply these principles or laws to your current life.
From the first law of attraction, “Like Attracts Like,” I’ve already discussed a very critical corollary: If You Don’t Need It, You Are More Likely to Attract It. Neediness in any form is inherently repellent. This follows from the law because a lack of something attracts more of a lack of something, just like negative thoughts attract more negative thoughts in a vicious circle that is hard to break. This is why debt attracts more debt, savings attracts more money, and it is always easier to get a new job when you are currently employed.
Another corollary to the first law is, “Perfect the Present.” This actually works well with all three laws of attraction. It usually looks like the present isn’t perfect. There are wars going on, children starving to death, masses of emails piling up in your inbox, you can’t stand your job or your boss is driving you mad.
The trick is to make your current reality as perfect as possible. Imagine for example, that you will never be able to leave your current job so you have no choice but to master the one job you have and make it as perfect as possible. This might mean learning some aspect of the job you’d rather not do or learning how to manage a difficult boss. Or volunteering to do work that is more interesting to you in addition to your current assignment. Then, when you finally get to the point of not being desperate to get out of there (because you’ve perfected it), you’ll find you’ll attract the perfect next job.
Like Attracts Like. If you want the perfect job, perfect the one you already have. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t contact a recruiter or post your resume. You do need to be out there, but at the same time, perfect your current situation. The candidate who is happy in their work will be more attractive to new prospective employers.
And then there is the law of attraction, “Nature Abhors a Vacuum,” which is actually based on a law of physics –empty space has compelling suction properties. If you want something new to come into your life, such as a new career, then get rid of the old stuff in your life to create some space. The universe tends to fill empty space, pulling things in like a magnet. I personally find this the easiest and most effective of all the laws of attraction. Start tossing junk and you’ll be amazed what comes your way. Just be careful to say no to what you don’t want.

Here is a life coaching tip to apply this law of attraction to your own life:
Take one element of your life this week and perfect it. Don’t just clean it up, make it absolutely perfect. For example, if you decide to clean out your closet, don’t just toss the old clothes out. Buy matching good quality hangers for all your clothes so that they hang nicely. Sew on all the missing buttons and fix the tears. Polish your shoes and take the ones with worn heels to be repaired. Give away anything you haven’t worn in a year or that you’ll never wear again. When you open your closet in the morning, the perfection of it will give you energy. Get all the right storage things for your belts, shoes, etc. Think “California Closet” sort of organization.
One of my executive clients splurged and had her closets done professionally and she couldn’t believe how easy it was to get dressed for work every day and what a joy it was to open her closet door. Pick one area of your life this week and perfect it to the point that it gives you energy.
