Law of Attraction Tips – What Direction To Take

by Rockstar

I'm a 22yr old guy at university doing an art degree. It will take me 3 more years to finish it and I hate it but feel trapped as I have invested a lot of time and money into it. The exhibitions cause me anxiety on a daily basis and my heart's desire is to quit it and follow my dream to be a musician.

I'm a very talented musician but the art course takes up so much of my time that I cannot finish producing my tracks before I have to leave it to go paint (which I hate). I know in my heart what I must do but the "have something to fall back on" fear holds me back. I'm getting older and I feel that I have to make a decision about what I want in my life now and put my foot down and trust my gut.

I used to study film in NYC but finances forced me to leave that and now I am in a small town in a horrible country where I have no friends and where I am not free to be myself.

I really have a voice inside me that says that I should leave the art degree because it feels wrong. I dread it but because of my age I am under pressure to become independent and the fear of failure lingers. I don't want to live my life in regret. I want to finish a demo album this year and go from there. I know many people have such a dream but its not just a dream to me. I am a talented singer and songwriter, that I know. I want to go back to NYC and I want to be free, successful and happy. I think I, at least, deserve the chance to try.

What do I do?

How do I implement the Law of Attraction when I have had many disappointments?

How do I change my perception and become confident in what I want, and let go of fear?

Are there any right or wrong decisions, or does the universe adjust, to that you can meet your aspirations and goals, regardless of what you think you should do?

An interesting exercise would be to write down a list of all the bad decisions you have made, as well as a list of all the good decisions you have made.

And then go through that list and write down the good things that have come from your bad decisions, and the bad things the have come from your good decisions.

Most people who do this exercise will have as many good things coming from bad decisions, as bad things from good decisions, so the question remains, can you get it right, or for that matter, can you get it wrong?

(I guess you could use this exercise to uncover the good that has come from the disappointments you have had, and focus on the good things that you are grateful for).

The question, “What do I do?” Is a question that all of us face, shall I do A or B, which will work, which will make me a success, which will make me happy?

Chasing success is an endless chase, as success will always be one step ahead of you. This is the nature of success, as the measure
of how much, how far and how long, shall always be a step away from enough.

But happiness, that’s immeasurable…

I guess that the question you really need to answer is this, “would you rather be an unhappy artist, or a happy musician, regardless of the success it brings?”

So the question remains, what do you do?

We have often heard that money cannot buy happiness but it turns out that happiness can lead to more money. In Getting Rich Your Own Way, psychologist and author Srully Blotnick cites a study that examines the connection between wealth and happiness.

The study consisted of 1,500 young people, divided into two groups. The participants in Group A were pursuing a career chosen for money, and Group B participants chose a career because it was what they loved to do. The number of participants in Group A outnumbered those in Group B by a five to one margin.

Researchers followed both groups for 20 years. At the end of 20 years, 101 participants were millionaires. Only one of the millionaires came from Group A (career choice based on money); the remaining 100 were all from Group B! The 1,250 participants in Group A who chose a career with money as their primary objective produced only one wealthy person. By comparison, 100 of the 250 Group B participants became wealthy by pursuing happiness as their primary objective.

One of the main problems that many Law of Attraction teachers cause, and I include myself here, is that we tend to tell people to visualise their goals, and adopt the thoughts and feelings of reaching them now.

Where as this is sound advice if you are reaching for a specific goal, it’s quite a sweeping exercise that assumes that you know what you want. And to be perfectly honest, not many people are 100% certain of the direction they want to take.

I would definitely suggest that you start to practise some form of meditation, this will help you apply the Law of Attraction, come to terms with the disappointments you have had as well as build your confidence.

Meditation will also help you to find and listen to the knowing part of you, amongst the ego driven voices that cloud your mind.

I have practised Vipassana Meditation for some time now and I am sure it will help you, take a look at the Website for some great information, you can also download an eBook on Vipassana called Mindfulness in Plain English

EFT is another easy to use technique, and can be used to tackle emotional issues, physiological issues and limiting beliefs.

EFT use a sequence of tapping on specific points of the body, rather like Acupuncture, and helps to accept certain things about yourself, so that you can move forward without these issues getting in your way.

To learn the EFT Tapping sequence you can download a free eBook by simply filling out your name and email address on the left hand side of the The Tapping Solution Website.

Hi there Rockstar..I understand your dilema very well as I have faced many situations where I've had to make difficult decisions on the direction that I should take.

One thing I can tell you for sure is that at your age, you may think it's more important to make the right decision than it actually is.

Even if you feel pressured to get your career underway due to time contraints, that is a falacy that we all buy into at some point in life.

I started a business as a portrait artist last year thinking that it was all I wanted and that I was meant to be an artist. I put a lot of pressure on myself to succeed at this undertaking, working on the set up as if it were the most important thing I would ever do and after I had done it I began to get some work.

Well I found out pretty quickly that the most fun I had was in starting the business. I began to resent drawing the portraits, the time it took, and the price I thought I had to charge in order to make it worth my while.

So after several months the orders dropped off and I was sitting alone at home.

To make a very long story short, I now am working part time at a regular job and I took up background acting, something I never thought would happen, and loving it so much. It allows me time to do other things and fills a need to be creative.

Also I am now free to do portraits when they come along and I'm even getting some offers for illustration work.

So don't limit yourself is my point and learn from whatever decisions you make.

Do what you love and if it isn't everything you thought it was, change it up and follow your instincts. It will all work out in the end, but always listen to your inner voice: it never lies.

Good luck Rockstar.
