How to Attract A Great Business Relationships Using the Law of Attraction
In my previous article An Introduction to the Law of Attraction I explained what the Law of Attraction was and how whether you realize it or not, it is always in operation. It could also be called the ‘Law of Vibration’ because from your words you form thoughts, and those thoughts evoke certain feelings or vibrations.
Those vibrations sometimes called ‘vibes’ are either positive or negative and they will attract more of the same. Another way to say this is that ‘like attracts like’. So it makes sense to say that you most likely want to find business partners who have similar ‘positive vibes’ as you do.
In this article How to Attract A Great Business Relationship I’ll take you through a step-by-step process that you can use to attract a great business partner, client, strategic alliance or even support team. First it’s best to determine the qualities you want in your business associate or partner. This is called ‘Identifying Your Ideal Partner’ exercise and be clear if this is to be a true business partner, an ideal client, a great strategic alliance or someone (or several people) as part of your support team.
It’s easy to make what is called a ‘Clarity Through Contrast’ list by taking a sheet of paper and at the top put the heading ‘My Ideal Partner’ or you fill in the blank with what you want to attract.
Beneath that on the left hand side write ‘Contrast – What I DO NOT WANT’ and on the right hand side write ‘Clarity – What I DO WANT’. Just let your thoughts free flow down the Contrast side and do up to about 50 if you can. You don’t have to do this in one sitting you can do it over a few days. Then read out each DO NOT WANT response and on the right hand side write what you DO WANT.
By the time you finish this list you should be pretty clear on the type of business partner you are looking for that would suit you and your company best.
Now that you know the type of partner you are looking for you need to think about where you might meet your new partner.
Today many people are meeting potential business partners through in-person networking groups and attracting great fits through word-of-mouth referrals. Social media is a place that you can check out someone that you might be considering. For business LinkedIn is a good starting point as it has business information and may contain some testimonials about that person or company.
Facebook is also another good source that can offer information about them or not. If they have no social media sites that might be an indicator to you that this person might not be a fit with your business – or it may not matter. If you belong to an association there may be someone in that group that is a perfect fit for what you are looking for.
Do you know of someone who met a great business contact in a shopping line? Or waiting in line to by hockey tickets? It can happen to you too!
In any of these scenarios as long as you have identified the qualities you are looking for you are more likely to attract someone with some of these qualities. The next step is to write out a page or two of how you will feel when you actually are associated with this person in your business.
You might say things like “I am so excited to have found the perfect website development company and there is a bonus because they do SEO work! or “I love knowing that my new business partner is so skilled in areas that I am not that we make a perfect team!
Write whatever you feel will make you feel great when you are working with this person and write ‘as if’ it has already happened. You might want to start a vision board with pictures of what you want your business relationship to look like.
The final step is what is called ‘allowing’ and it means that once you have put out there what you want you need to let it be. No frantic, desperate feelings as you wait because since you know ‘like vibrations attract like vibrations’ you will only attract someone who is most likely not a good fit for you or your business!
Now every single time you get one iota of evidence that you are getting closer to attracting the type of business person you want in the type of business relationship you want then celebrate this!
It’s a good idea to keep a journal and express gratitude for all the great people that are coming into your life – even if, they are not yet your ideal business partner.
Stay focused on the type of person you want and keep these notes you have made in front of you and not hidden away in a drawer. The law of attraction states that you attract into your life whatever you put your attention, energy or focus on whether wanted or unwanted. Expect the perfect business match to start showing up – it might even happen before you have written everything out.
