Shane goes into detail about how he started to utilize the law of attraction when he realized that thoughts are things, and he worked to change his belief system to create his own destiny.

A lot of you guys may actually already have read some books about the law of attraction. Oprah talks about the law of attraction, but we want to share a little bit of a different insight into the law of attraction.

I’ve been studying personal development since 1998 and I’ve been able to radically transform my life. Since the very beginning of my studies, I went from having $35,000 a year as a blue-collar worker to well over $50,000 a month within six months period of time becoming an entrepreneur.

I’ll tell you what, people attribute that success to the business I’m in, but there were a lot of other people doing that same kind of business that weren’t getting the result I was getting. In fact, I’m somebody that’s never had big results in my life because I’m typically on the wrong side of the bell curve.

But something shifted, something changed within my mindset and I realized that thoughts are things, which was the first jump I made in my life to utilize the law of attraction. I realized that beliefs become self-fulfilling prophecies and I started to work on my belief system to change my perspective about the way I would think about things. I changed the way I think, which changed the decisions I was making and it was like a big paradigm shift. These changes helped me to get big results in my life.

Let’s say you get started in a job and you think that the sky’s the limit — everyone is there to support you, the economy is great and everything’s just perfect. Then as you go through life, things happen to you and you start to become very cautious and skeptical when you start to get too happy. When this happens, you can be the cause in a situation or you can be the effect of the situation.

That’s exactly what happened to me. With the many jobs I had, I felt like I was completely the effect of the situation. Like no matter how hard I tried, ultimately I wasn’t really in control of my destiny because there was a boss.

But at the end of the day, I could control what was happening my utilizing the law of attraction to create my own destiny.
