S:0087 Principle: Magnets Have Two Ends

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Picture a simple bar magnet, not a horseshoe magnet nor an electromagnet, just a plain straight magnet like you may have played with when you were little.

Even with the simple understanding you had as a child, you knew (could observe) that the magnet could be used to pick things up. It was magic.

Later, perhaps as an experiment in science class, you observed the interaction between two magnets and learned about two fundamental principles that are still a part of your life. You learned the difference between attracting and repelling forces. When you turned the magnets one way they would be attracted to one another. Turning one of the magnets around caused them to repel one another.

It’s useful to look at the things that drive you forward in life (repel you) and use that energy. At the same time notice what pulls you forward (attracts you) and use that energy also. Some sources may have taught you to only use goals and similar things to attract what you want in life, never focusing on the repelling stuff. That’s like cutting off half the magnet; use both ends.

Later when you have strengthened your personal foundation, have built sufficient reserves and no longer have repelling (fear-based) forces at work, your natural attraction will provide all the energy you need to bring you everything you want. Until then, use the repelling forces also.
