How the Law of Attraction Can Help You Ace Your Exams

If you’re like most students, you probably approach exams with a degree of anxiety and worry. You’re anxious because you don’t know if you’ve prepared enough and worried because you’re afraid that you won’t do well. While exam anxiety and worry are perfectly normal, they are not a requirement for your success. In fact, you CAN do away with these negative emotions AND still achieve phenomenal success in your exams.

How? By being prepared and applying the Law of Attraction. In its basic sense, the Law of Attraction (LOA) is about being confident that you will achieve the best results, even before you achieve them. It is also about giving your best effort in every moment and believing that you will succeed. The Universe is always listening to your thoughts, words and actions. And whatever you think, say and do, the Law of Attraction will give you more of it.

Here’s how you can get started:

Tip #1 – Do the work and study
The Law of Attraction is one of the most natural laws in the universe, but it will not work for you if you don’t do anything at all. Remember, it’s not a quick fix formula or miracle that can help you through an exam that you haven’t studied for. In order to magnetise the Law of Attraction, you must apply “affirmative action.” This simply means you must prepare yourself with the right knowledge and skills, as well as a high level of optimism. This is your first step.

Tip # 2 – Have faith
The lack of faith and confidence is something that often sabotages even the most well-meaning and hardworking students. You can make all the preparations you want, but if you constantly have doubt and fear, you can’t perform at your best. To counter your feelings of fear and doubt, adopt a positive and happy attitude, no matter how big the exam is. As you study, have full faith that you’re going to do your best in the exam and get the best results. The more you get into action by doing your revisions, the more confidence you’ll build. As the saying goes “the more I practice, the luckier I get”

Tip # 3 – Be accountable

As a student, you must realise that no one else is responsible for getting you better grades in your exams. Only YOU can make that happen. Therefore, learn to accept the responsibility. Take a look at where you are now and how much time you have until that big exam. This is your reality, figure out what you need to do and get started right away purposefully.


Tip # 4 – Practice positive affirmation

To become more confident in your own abilities, practice positive affirmation. This is how you do it -Each time you open a book or turn on your computer to study, say to yourself, “I am confident and I have faith that this is my best study. I am going to do my best in this exam.” It may feel silly at first, but once you make it a habit, it will come naturally to you and it will feel good.


Tip # 5 – Tap into your intuition

Unless you possess a photographic memory, it is impossible for you to memorise entire books from cover to cover. Therefore, students often struggle with figuring out what to study for their exams. Before you begin studying, take some time to think about the topics that may come up in your upcoming exam. Listen to your intuition and then make the necessary preparation. Your intuition is the universe’s way of showing you the way.

Tip # 6 – Visualise your success

Each day, take 10-15 minutes to meditate and clear your mind. You can do it in the morning, evening or just before bed. If you’re not sure how to meditate, ask your parents for help in finding a brief guided-meditation recording. Once you’ve finished your meditation, visualise that you are studying with a happy attitude and that everything you are studying is being stored in your mind.


Tip #7 – Counter those negative thoughts and emotions

You are a human being, made of flesh and blood. You have thoughts and emotions, and some of them will be negative. No matter how positive you are, they will crop up time and again. So how do you handle it? Whenever you feel scared or have nagging doubt, say “Thank you” and think of happy things in your life. This will re-programme your subconscious mind to be more confident and deserving of happiness, fulfilment and success.

We leave you now with this thought – You are the most deserving person out there to ace that exam! Keep this in your mind and study well with happiness in your heart and optimism on your mind.

Steps to healing yourself

Have you ever felt really tired and worn out? Like you didn’t have the energy or mood to get up and do anything at all? If you’ve felt this way before, perhaps it’s one of those occasions when the demands of student life have gotten the better of you. But if this happens, please don’t feel bad. Rest assured it happens to the best of us and the good news is there are steps you can take to get your mind and body back on track.

What you need during these tough times is “healing,” to be exact, physical and spiritual healing, which you can achieve with the Law of Attraction.

How does it work? Well, think of it this way. How you feel, be in on the inside (spiritual) or outside (physical), is very often a direct reflection of what’s going on deep in your mind. So you could say that your mind may be the root of the issues you might be experiencing, such as a lack of energy and focus, or moodiness and irritability.

So by gaining better control of your thoughts, you can attract wellbeing and resolve the health issues you’ve been facing. The power to feel better, stronger, healthier and be more active and focused is within YOU. And here’s how YOU can tap into the incredible power of your own mind and thoughts to heal yourself from the inside out:

Pump up the affirmations

To get your mind and body on the right track, you can start by using positive affirmations. To do this, take some time out of your day to talk to yourself. Clear your mind and say to yourself words like: “I love my body and I take good care of it;” or “I am healthy, energetic and focused,” and, “My body is healing itself naturally.” You can come up with your own affirmations and repeat them to yourself regularly.

Boost with deep breathing

You breathe to stay alive, but did you know that breathing can also be an emotional release to ease stress and heal? Done correctly, deep breathing therapy can help you to relax and boost your natural immune system, which triggers self healing. All you need to do is to slowly take a deep breath, hold it for a few seconds and exhale slowly. Repeat this breathing pattern for 10 to 15 minutes. Try to do this at least once a day, preferably at the same time and in a quiet spot, to reap the most benefits.

Power up visualisations

Once you’re comfortable with deep breathing, you can practice visualisations. To visualise, you only need to imagine something in your mind, in great detail. So to self heal, for example, you can imagine yourself in a peaceful place. You are lying down comfortably and a bright light appears above your head. As it moves down towards your feet, you can feel its gentle warmth pushing all the negative feelings and pain out of your body. If you like, imagine the light passing over you several times. At the end of the visualisation, you should feel refreshed. Practice these visualisations regularly.

 Let go of the negatives

Each day, you carry around emotional garbage, like anger, jealousy and hate. But unlike normal garbage, which you get rid of regularly, you tend to hold onto emotional garbage. The build up of these negative thoughts cause your body to release stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, which can disrupt your natural immune system. Therefore, it’s crucial to let go of the negatives. You can do this by being more forgiving, focusing on the good things in life, being thankful and looking for silver linings in every negative thing that comes your way.


To further develop your positive mindset, it’s best to work with a coach. In order to help students understand how their minds can influence the way they function in daily life, we’ve designed the HeadStart programme to help them fully appreciate their own mental strength.  Through performance coaching, we help students to manifest healing for themselves through a systematic approach and practice. This equips students with a unique blend of effective tools and techniques that help them to perform at their fullest potential!

Self-love and the Law of Attraction

Growing up is hard to do and if you ask any adult, they’ll admit that life wasn’t always carefree in their youth. More likely than not, their teenage years were a challenge. Adolescence is a time when insecurity may be at its peak and to make things worse, your peers can be an insensitive bunch. But more likely than not, you are your own worst critic. When you look into a mirror, you may not like what you see, especially when you compare yourself to others. It is through these challenging times that you tend to forget to “love yourself.”

When you stop loving yourself, you are more likely to blame yourself for things that don’t go well in your life, no matter how small. And when your problems become the focus of your life, you will feel like a failure, and you will love yourself even less. Once you’ve entered into this vicious cycle, it is hard to get out of it, and it could lead to anxiety and depression.

A sense of happiness

One of the most important keys to making the Law of Attraction work for you is self love. We’re not talking about narcissism and conceit, where you think you’re the better than everyone else. We are referring to a sense of happiness and contentment with who you are right now, even if there are things that you’d like to improve upon. Nurturing a healthy, happy and loving relationship with yourself is crucial to your overall wellbeing, as well as your relationships with others.

But on a different level, when you don’t love yourself, the law of attraction takes note of this. You are telling the universe that you aren’t deserving of the things you want most in your life. Whatever vibe you emanate, the universe will give you more of it. So when you love yourself, the universe will align to your energy and the law of attraction will help you to get what you want.

 

Steps to loving yourself

You should know that the power to create, manifest and live the life of your dreams is in no one else’s hands, but your own. There are many steps you can take to cultivate a loving relationship with yourself, such as:

  1. Shift your focus – Instead of focusing on the things that you dislike about yourself, learn to look for things that you do like.
  2. Get to know yourself – To get to know yourself, develop your interests, try new things and care for yourself. Pay attention to what your mind, body and spirit are telling you.
  3. Accept, forgive and be kind to yourself – No matter what happens, don’t be too hard on yourself. It is ok to make mistakes and learn from them. By being kind to yourself, you will learn what experiences you want or don’t want to have in your life.
  4. Do things that you love – Pay attention to the activities that you enjoy doing. When you do what you love, you feel free and fulfilled. Always take some time out of your day to nurture your interest and to find new ones.
  5. Open yourself to personal growth – A crucial part of self-love is personal growth. If you’re not good at something, you can always get better at it with practice and effort. And even when you’re really good at something, there is always room for improvement. So open your heart and mind, and actively seek out new discoveries and experiences.

Learning from difficulties

Life is full of challenges, be it at home, school or among your peers. And sometimes, when you least expect it, you might find yourself in a tough situation. What goes through your mind when you’re faced with something difficult? Do you think that your life is going badly and start complaining? Do you think, “Why does this keep happening to me?”

While it’s easy and even tempting to adopt the “woe is me” mind frame, it is not the best attitude to have. According to the Law of Attraction, if you feel negatively about yourself, more negative things will be attracted to you. So instead of feeling miserable and sorry for yourself, the best approach is to “roll with the punches.”

This means, if you’re faced with a difficult situation, or if things aren’t going your way, you mustn’t think of it as a hindrance, or that bad things only happen to you. Instead, think of the difficulty as part of your route to success. If you allow it to, hardship can bring you positive results. Here’s how to turn the tables on your problems and start learning from your difficulties:

  1. Be more appreciative
    Difficulties can help you to develop a deeper appreciation for the good things in your life, which may have gone unnoticed.
  2. Valuable lessons
    Hardship teaches you to work harder and smarter, and helps you to learn from your mistakes. By reflecting on your difficulties, you can find better solutions that will serve you in the future.
  3. Sweeter success
    When you’re faced with adversity, and you manage to overcome it, your success will be that much sweeter.
  4. Become stronger
    If you don’t let them overcome you, challenges and problems can make you stronger and more resilient.
  5. Problems are opportunities
    Each and every problem you face gives you the opportunity to be better in every way, be it what you’re doing or how you’re behaving.

By adopting a positive mindset in the face of difficulties, you’ll no longer be sabotaging yourself with negative thoughts and instead, you can begin to attract better circumstances. Remember, the Law of Attraction is always present and it is observing you. If you work hard to resolve issues with a positive approach, the Universe will lend you a hand.

This is why, in our HeadStart Programme, we Nurture a Growth Mindset and we coach students and their parents about the Law of Attraction, as well as how to apply the tools that can drive them towards success and greatness.

The five main objectives of the ‘HeadStart’ Programme are to:

  1. Neutralise and shift the existing mindsets of students to a ‘growth mindset’, thus opening them up to the potential for increased performance and positive change;
  2. Identify and overcome fears, doubts and limiting beliefs, which are ‘roadblocks’ to experiencing significant progress;
  3. Take 100% ownership and accountability and responsibility for the results being generated both in school and at home;
  4. Increase the culture of positivity, construct uplifting environment and build cohesive family units which results in harmonious and empowering relationships; and
  5. Equip and empower teens to thrive in a rapidly changing social and work environment

So the next time you bump into a roadblock to achieving your goals, look at it as a golden opportunity. Instead of lamenting your bad luck, nurture a positive perspective and welcome the chance to learn and grow. This is one way to let difficulties work in your favour and to get the Law of Attraction support you on your way to success. If you need help in shifting negative mindsets, do get in touch with one of the coaches at LOA Malaysia.

Body language

How to communicate well without speaking.

As a teenager and student, you’ve probably become aware of how important communication can be in daily life. Whether you’re speaking up in class, talking to your parents at home, or hanging out with your friends, effective communication can offer you a wealth of knowledge, opportunities and experiences. But why is it so important for us to communicate well?

Firstly, communication is the foundation of good relationships. By being a good speaker and listener, you are able to share interests, dreams and concerns with others, as well as give and receive support. This is why the Law of Attraction emphasises upon good thoughts and words.

However, speaking, or verbal communication, is only part of how you communicate. The other part is your body language, or non-verbal communication. Everything from your facial expressions and how you walk, to your posture and your tone of voice, can indicate how you’re feeling on the inside.

But your body language doesn’t just affect other people, it affects you too. Therefore, to be more confident and successful, your body language must attract those traits. We can all benefit from improving the way we communicate, so here are some tips on how to communicate well using your body language:

 
Face: Keep your face relaxed and don’t wear a slight smile, with your eyebrows slightly raised. This conveys confidence and friendliness without anxiety.

Eyes: Your eyes are the windows to your soul, so if you’re speaking to someone, maintain comfortable eye contact. This conveys that you are interested in the conversation. However, avoid staring; it is ok to look away occasionally.

Posture: Whether you’re sitting or standing, maintain a fairly relaxed posture with your arms and legs uncrossed. This signifies that you’re at ease with yourself.

Body: When speaking to someone, face them. Lean towards them a little to indicate that you’re actively listening, and avoid looking up to or down on them.

Shoulders: If you’re someone who often shrugs, stop doing it. This small movement indicated to others that you either don’t know or don’t care.

Distracting gestures: Avoid making distracting gestures, like fidgeting with a pen, glancing at papers, or tapping your feet or fingers.

Affirmative gestures: Nod your head in agreement, smile at something funny, and laugh when appropriate. These simple gestures show empathy and lets people know that you’re on their side.

Fingers: Don’t point your fingers as you speak, as it looks like you’re blaming someone or something. Instead, steeple your fingers by pressing your fingertips together and keeping your palms separate. Many world leaders do this to convey confidence.

Walk: Walk with confidence at your own pace. Don’t shuffle or drag your feet. Hold your head high and look forward, not down. Keep your shoulders back and stomach tucked in.

At the LOA Centre, Malaysia, we believe that you can use your body language to stay positive and build your attraction. As a first step, our coaches will help you recognise the power of the mind-body connection. Next, they will show you how you can use it to your advantage with the Law of Attraction.

 
Once you know your own body language and what you may have been doing wrong, you can start making simple changes that will not only help you feel more confident, but reset your entire “vibe”.

 
A vibe is a word used to describe the longer word vibration. The word vibe is also often used to describe a mood or feeling. There are two (2) types of vibes; positive (+ve) and negative (-ve). What this means is that every mood or feeling you experience causes you to send out a vibration, either positive or negative and at any one time, you can only send out one such vibe, either positive or negative.

 
Once you start using positive body language, you send out positive vibes to those around you. People are naturally attracted to positive body language and confidence, so in turn, others and the universe at large, will respond by reciprocating your positivity.

 
So in order to start attracting good things to you, work on making your body language positive and confident. In fact, make “changing your body language” your personal project this week. You’ll soon notice that just by changing several body language habits, you can change your entire mood and gain more from life!

The Positive Path

Become a positive thinker and turn thoughts into action

Has anyone ever told you to “think positive”? It could have been a parent, teacher, relative or friend. And what thought crossed your mind when you heard it? Perhaps you thought that “thinking positive” is useless and that it doesn’t work, or that it’s impossible to achieve. Ok, hold onto that thought.
Why is it when you feel down, the whole world seems to be against you; but when you’re happy, it feels like you can conquer the world? The truth is, the world around you hasn’t changed drastically during those times, but you have. In short, how you think determines how you feel.
The power of your mind is at the essence of the Law of Attraction, which states, “What we think about, we bring about.” So if there is something you want in your life, you can attract it to you by visualising your desired results, using affirmations, expecting good things to happen, being appreciative, and taking inspired action.
To put it simply, if you make it a habit to think positive, positive things will come your way. Is it really that simple? How does it work?
Yes, positive thinking works, but you must also combine it with actions, because thoughts alone cannot move mountains. But firstly, realise that your thoughts are very powerful. They can give rise to feelings, and from those feelings come words and actions. Simply put, your thoughts, feelings and actions are all interconnected. Together, they create your life. So if your thoughts are negative, everything else will be too.
However, if you’re not used to positive thinking, it may not come easily at first. But it is possible to train your mind to think about good things that will help you to feel empowered, confident and capable.
There are six steps to becoming a positive thinker:

  1.  Know your goals and deepest desires
  2. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude and remind yourself of the things you are thankful for when you feel sad or angry
  3. Watch your self-talk and stop using negative words and expressions to describe things or ourselves
  4. Focus on the good in every situation
  5. Picture your dreams and make a picture board with images and words that inspire you
  6. And last, but most importantly, take action!

When you know what you want in life, talk and think to yourself in empowering ways, focus on the good and are able to visualise your dreams, you’re ready to take positive action. Though it may sound daunting at first, you can take small steps by making a commitment to take one action each day that will get you closer to your goals.
If you want to take action and start giving off positive vibes, you must first understand what we call the ‘words/result relationship.’ It is all about the words that we use, which give us thoughts, which in return has feelings attached to them.
Each word we use gives out either positive of negative vibes. Whatever words we use and thoughts they generate, the Law of Attraction matches them and keeps giving us the same results. So the only way to change our result from bad to good is by changing our vibes. That happens when we reset ourselves by asking the crucial question, “So, what do I want?” This gives us the path towards what we want and should act upon.
The secret to using the Law of Attraction in an effective way is to do the work consistently and to work with a coach. At the Law of Attraction Centre, Malaysia, our coaches teach, guide and equip you to learn, do and teach the message of the Law of Attraction. It is in the consistent practise of simple formulas, techniques and tools (with guidance) that you can generate the best results.
Last, but not least, remember that if your world cannot change, you can. You have to mental power to remove negative obstacles in your mind that stand in the way of your goals. So rather than think, “I can’t do this!” train your mind to think, “Here is my moment to shine!”
