If you’re a believer in metaphysical principles such as the Law of Attraction, you’ve probably noticed that people who don’t consider themselves to be metaphysical often practice metaphysical principles without realizing it. They likely call it something else and explain it in a different way, but it’s all the same advice.
One such principle: the concept of ‘dressing for success.’ A similar concept is ‘dressing for the job you want, rather than the job you have.’ (Click here for more tips on using the Law of Attraction in your career).
Non-believers will say that dressing for success and dressing for the job you want are logical ways to prepare yourself for the job you want or the life you want. They also will say that it signals to those around you that you are ready and prepared to take on this new position.
But isn’t that what the Law of Attraction is about? When you act ‘as if’ you show the Universe that you know that you’re worthy of and ready for the role or position that you’re trying to obtain. Dressing the part is no different than acting ‘as if.’ It helps you to feel like you are already doing what you want to do, and when you feel a certain way, you attract circumstances that match that very vibration.
Your thoughts also reflect the way you feel. When you’re feeling bad, your thoughts are likely pretty negative. But when you feel good and you feel like you are destined to be the person you want to be, your thoughts are going to be in alignment with what you want.
In many respects, mastering the Law of Attraction requires you to find a way to trick yourself into feeling what you want to feel before you actually have a logical reason to feel that way. In other words, your task is to start having the reaction you would have when you achieve your dream before you actually achieve your dream.
According to Tom Dooley, in many respects it’s a game. His online course Playing the Matrix helps you to get in the mindset of thinking and feeling the way you would feel once you achieved your goals. In doing so, you bring about the circumstances that bring those goals to fruition.
