3. Drawing & Sketching in the Law of Attraction

I really believe in the law of attraction. What you see is what you get. What you always say and hear is always what you get. If you will use drawing in the law of attraction, you will get positive results.

Do you want a car? Then draw a car. Do you want a elegant house for your family. Then start sketching your dream house. What about dreaming a happy and rich family? Then, draw a happy family. Always remember, you should be careful on what you draw, if you draw houses and cars, then you will soon get houses and cars. Think the things you always dreaming of. Simply draw things and suddenly those drawing of things will turn into a real thing.

If you love to draw, your chances of becoming a fine artists or an architect is very high. In career planning, the only things that you should remember are “skills, interest and enjoyment”.

  • Skills: You will become the best person in your field if you are expert. Skills is very important in career planning.
  • Interest: Even if you are skillful and knowledgeable in your chosen field, you will only become successful if you have a passion on it, that means your career should be depending in your hobbies and interests.
