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


Most people have difficulty “getting” this principle of Irresistible Attraction because it’s so simple to see the many ways in which the present is not perfect.

Generally we have been trained — by parents, peers, society — to focus on how good it’s going to be in the future. When you do that you aren’t living in the present. (By focusing on how good the dessert is going to be you don’t notice the pleasure of the bite of the entree you’re chewing.) It is normal to be bothered by what’s wrong with the present and to anticipate a future that will be better; go ahead and do that.

An easy path to this principle is to start noticing the things that are perfect in your life right now — and write it down. You will start to feel the joy, pleasure, comfort, energy, peace and confidence of the present. The more you do this simple process, the less you will focus (and attract more of!) the things that are not perfect.
