When Gehati was first established, I'll admit that I wasn't initially diving in head first to make this company grow. It was a passion of mine, yes, but I treated it like a side hustle for many, many years. At first, the thought never occurred to me that my passion for creating jewelry, fragrances, and candles could lead to a full-time supportive income.
That all changed when I became a single mom. You see, not only did I have bills to pay, but now I had a son to take care of. When he was an infant, I decided to make Gehati's business growth a reality, somehow and some way.
Eventually, I experienced an energy shift. At the time, I didn't know that I was in charge of my own reality. Bad things happen to good people, right? While that may be true, that's not the end of the story.
I'm in control of what happens in my life. When I focus on attracting positivity, motivation, and determination, I experience personal growth and can see clearly where I want to take my business.
With that being said, I'd like to explain what the Law of Attraction is and how I'm using it to grow my business.
What is the Law of Attraction?
No, we're not talking about dating or being physically attracted to another person. The Law of Attraction is all about energy.
Simply put, it's about developing an ability to attract good things to happen in your life. You can give yourself the power to experience good things and live a fulfilling life. You will attract into your life whatever you focus on. Example, you want to be financially stabled and secure. Your mindset has to stay focus on being just that. It cannot for one second start to doubt the possibilities of achieving that goal. Doubt will increase your chances being slim to none. But your positive outlook and belief system will increase your chances to actually accomplishing that goal!
Now, how do I apply this principle to entrepreneurship?
I'm very passionate about my business, so it's rather easy to feel good about doing something that I love. However, entrepreneurship is a series of highs and lows. It's a never-ending roller coaster that can definitely suck you dry. There are good seasons and bad seasons.
If you need a visual, I love this one I saw on Natalie Franke's Instagram page. It's a spot on representation on what it takes to work for yourself.
Does it resonate with you? I think it's an accurate representation of the various seasons we navigate through as business owners. The truth is we're all on a different journey, and we have to learn a lot of things on our own.
Here is what I do to attract positive energy that helps me grow my business:
I believe in myself and the vision I have for my business.
Understanding your place within the law of attraction will help you to change your thought process of yourself and make room for you to create an amazing future. The law of attraction knows no order of difficulty. Therefore, it allots for infinite possibilities, infinite abundance and infinite happiness.
I show up every single day. Even when I don't feel like it.
It’s simple, there are no other options and I don’t look at my plan B as an option. I stay the course, challenging or not, and focus on my end goals aka the “BIG” picture.
I do everything for my son.
I’m building my business to pass down to my son debt-free. This is my livelihood, so I have to let the law of attraction guide my daily life. I come up against more challenges than not, so in order to persevere, I must keep a motivating outlook on the path I’m on.
This is a little snippet of how I apply this technique to my life. Remember, only the ones that are strong enough to withstand the storms will reap the rewards that await for them.
