28 Principles of Attraction

Wild Abundance

I recently picked up my weathered copy of Thomas Leonard's, The Portable Coach, and was struck by how many of his 28 Principles of Attraction map out perennial truths that will unleash your flow.

The book has loads of suggestions and exercises, that will keep you busy for some time. It won't replace working with a coach, but it definitely is a good starting point for gaining awareness on the habits that hinder your abundance.

Here are the 28 Principles of Attraction. Notice which ones jump out at you and choose to explore how you can embody them:

1. BECOME INCREDIBLY SELFISH. Without you, there is nothing, and attraction isn't possible.

2. UNHOOK YOURSELF FROM THE FUTURE. Attraction works in the present, not in the future.

3. OVER RESPOND TO EVERY EVENT. By over-responding instead of over-reaching, you evolve, which is very attractive.

4. BUILD A SUPER RESERVE IN EVERY AREA. Having enough is not nearly enough for you to be irresistibly attractive

5. ADD VALUE JUST FOR THE JOY OF IT. When you add value because you enjoy it, people are naturally attracted to you.

6. AFFECT OTHERS PROFOUNDLY. The more you touch others, the more attractive you'll become.

7. MARKET YOUR TALENTS SHAMELESSLY. If you're embarrassed about what you do well, you won't be very attractive.

8. BECOME IRRESISTIBLY ATTRACTIVE TO YOURSELF. How can you attract others if you don't feel irresistibly attractive to yourself?

9. GET A FULFILLING LIFE, NOT JUST AN IMPRESSIVE LIFESTYLE. A great life is attractive; a lifestyle is usually seductive.

10. DELIVER TWICE WHAT YOU PROMISE. When you consistently deliver more than was expected, new customers are drawn to you.

11. CREATE A VACUUM WHICH PULLS YOU FORWARD. Being pulled forward is attractive; pushing forward is not.

12. ELIMINATE DELAY. Time is expensive and thus is very unattractive.

13. GET YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS MET, ONCE AND FOR ALL. If you have unmet needs, you'll attract others in the same position.

14. THRIVE ON THE DETAILS. Subtleties, details and nuances are more attractive than the obvious.

15. TOLERATE NOTHING. When you put up with something, it costs you. Costs are expensive and thus unattractive.

16. SHOW OTHERS HOW TO PLEASE YOU. Don't make them guess.

17. ENDORSE YOUR WORST WEAKNESSES. When you can accept and honor the worst part of yourself, you are more accepting of others.

18. SENSITIZE YOURSELF. The more you feel, the more you'll notice and respond to the many opportunities in the present.

19. PERFECT YOUR ENVIRONMENT. The attraction OS is a sophisticated system which requires a first-class environment.

20. DEVELOP MORE CHARACTER THAN YOU NEED. Integrity is not enough to become irresistibly attractive.

21. SEE HOW PERFECT THE PRESENT REALLY IS. Especially when it is clearly not.

22. BECOME UNCONDITIONALLY CONSTRUCTIVE. High levels of respect are very attractive.

23. ORIENT EXCLUSIVELY AROUND YOUR VALUES. When you spend your days doing what fulfills you, you are attractive.

24. SIMPLIFY EVERYTHING. Abandoning the non-essentials leaves more room for you to attract.

25. MASTER YOUR CRAFT. Being the best at what you do is the easiest way to become successful.

26. RECOGNIZE AND TELL THE TRUTH. The truth is the most attractive thing of all, but it requires skills and awareness.

27. HAVE A VISION. When you can see what's coming, you don't need to create a future.

28. BE MORE HUMAN. When you are genuine, you are attractive.

You might feel a little overwhelmed when reading the principles, especially if you're in the initial phase of designing your consciously creative life. Hold fast, my friend, wonderful things are in store for you.

Those of us that have been around the block a few times nod with emphatic certainty on some, cackle with recognition on others and smile and say, “Yes!” to the ones still at play.  As you clear the clutter of the unnecessary habits and energy drains in your world, you wake up to the abundance that is you. And that is irresistibly attractive!

    Yes, it just sticks out – aren’t we “supposed” to be good/accepting/more-than-tolerating etc – even when it’s costing our own soul?!?
    Last year this started happening to me (especially when I went back to Sweden and spent 6 months in the Rebirthing Community which “started me properly” on the inner-empowered path) – one person after another started to appear “in my face” criticizing the way I talked, dressed, made food, behaved, felt, lived, ate (and so on…) It was very useful to receive criticism so that I could “be better”, but this was energetically from a totally other place – but this was awful! And then I got it – the value of a combination of non-negotiable stick-in-the-ground absolute-NO with DISTANCE in which I could see these people in complete and utter love and send them every wish for wonderful blessing that I could muster “from afar.”
    It really changed things. They stopped “bugging” me, my self-image rose (in Divine Humility, yes, but I felt proud in that “constructive” way) and unimagined blessings started to pour over me at so many levels. And my presence as a performing musician took a giant leap forward! WOW!

    Thanks for posting these!

  2. The very first coach I worked with studied with Thomas Leonard, and I worked through many of these principles in her program. The one principle that created an initial shift was #15. That was huge! I was not in alignment when I was tolerating. While it may have been attractive to someone else (doing what that person wanted) I did not feel attractive. Getting into alignment caused a bit a turbulence, but turbulence usually doesn’t last long. Thanks for the reminder and listing these principles Adela.

    1. Ooooh #15 Tolerate Nothing has been a huge game changer for me too, Julie. Every once in a while I’ll discover that I’m still playing the tolerating game. It wakes me from my stupor. I find that it frees my creative expression and capacity for sheer joy. Like the man said, “Tolerate nothing.”
