5 Ways to Attract Synchronicity

5 Ways to Attract Synchronicity

Do you believe in coincidences? You know when you’re thinking about someone, and then the phone rings and it’s that person? That’s synchronicity, which can be explained as a meaningful coincidence.

    This principal occurs on a much larger scale in daily life, and I’m going to share how you can recognise and utilise it to benefit you.

    These five steps have helped me transform my life in amazing ways. I went from Struggle Street, to millionaire and beyond. I finally found a way I could play the game of life, and win!

    Here’s what you can to do to open yourself and attract synchronistic events into your life:

    Form a Clear Intention

    Become absolutely clear of your goal. Be as specific as possible. Write it down. Visualize it! Give as much detail as possible. When I first did this step my motivation was 100% financial. I decided I wanted to be wealthy, but more specifically, I wanted to earn $50K/month.

      I was a time poor, grumpy, financially challenged mechanic, and the idea of earning $50K/month was beyond my reality. But I stuck with my intention and my specific dollar amount, and this change of mindset opened me up to a chain of synchronistic events that brought me to my goal.

      Once you are crystal clear on what you wish to create, aligned ‘coincidences’ will start presenting to you. For me, it was meeting three separate men, who shared their success stories with me, who all earned exactly $50K/month.

      Stay firm in the belief that you can do it. The only limit is your imagination. Accept that your life can change for the better, you don’t need to know how at this point, you just have to believe it.

      Stop Resisting Outcomes

      You set the clear intention, great. What happens next? The ‘what ifs’ drift in. It’s a self-survival tool our mind utilizes to guard against negative outcomes. You must resist.

      When something happens to take you off track, it makes you think you can’t achieve the goal and you give up a little bit of hope on that clear intention. You’re no longer suspending disbelief of your pie-in-the-sky ideal and you slip back into your linear reality. This can happen easily during a conversation with a friend or family member, just trying to protect you. You’ve got to keep suspending the belief. The synchronistic events will follow.

      Be Playful with Your Perceptions

      Find the opportunity in every event as it pertains to your vision. See any setback as though it was supposed to happen. Instead of being grim and wallowing in current circumstances, stand by your decision and follow through.

      Be playful with this, start perceiving everything as though it was meant to be, as if it’s leading you closer to your goal. Synchronicity will start playing out in front of you just follow it.

      Trust Your Snap Judgement

      You have to start trusting in your gut, your intuition, which supports your snap judgements. Those initial instincts that set you on this path were there for a reason.

      When things start going bad, people have a tendency to say – it’s an omen, get out! Refuse to believe the negative hype, back yourself and jump in with both feet. Before long you’ll be following one synchronistic breadcrumb after another delivering you to everything you’ve envisaged.

      Follow the Breadcrumbs

        Two weeks into my entrepreneurial adventure, I hadn’t received any wins. This was the date I was supposed to be returning to my job after my holidays, but the boss fired me when he found out I was launching a new business venture.

        Because I had no job to return to, I kept going. By that fourth week, I had a huge surge in results and started earning more money per week than I was previous banking per month. If I had not been fired, this wouldn’t have occurred.

        That was the final breadcrumb in a line of meaningful coincidences that all equated to one struggling mechanic’s rise to successful entrepreneurship, and his first pie-in-the-sky achievement of $50K/month.

        This, of course, can apply to absolutely anything your life. Weight loss, health, relationships, and lifestyle goals. Each one must start with a clear intention, steadfast focus, the ability to see events from your chosen perception, and trusting your gut!

        Beliefs are self-fulfilling prophecies. Beliefs create reality, for everyone! Coincidence is one thing, but when it happens a hundred times in a row, to people around you, and to yourself, that’s beyond coincidence. That’s the Universe sending you breadcrumbs. That’s synchronicity working for you.

        20 Time Management Tips to Super Boost Your Productivity

        20 Time Management Tips to Super Boost Your Productivity

        Are you usually punctual or late? Do you finish things within the time you stipulate? Do you hand in your reports/work on time? Are you able to accomplish what you want to do before deadlines? Are you a good time manager?

        If your answer is “no” to any of the questions above, that means you’re not managing your time as well as you want. Here are 20 time management tips to help you manage time better:

        1. Create a Daily Plan

        Plan your day before it unfolds. Do it in the morning or even better, the night before you sleep. The plan gives you a good overview of how the day will pan out. That way, you don’t get caught off guard. Your job for the day is to stick to the plan as best as possible.

        2. Peg a Time Limit to Each Task

        Be clear that you need to finish X task by 10am, Y task by 3pm, and Z item by 5:30pm. This prevents your work from dragging on and eating into time reserved for other activities.

        3. Use a Calendar

        Having a calendar is the most fundamental step to managing your daily activities. If you use outlook or lotus notes, calendar come as part of your mailing software.

        I use it. It’s even better if you can sync your calendar to your mobile phone and other hardwares you use – that way, you can access your schedule no matter where you are. Here’re the 10 Best Calendar Apps to Stay on Track .

        4. Use an Organizer

        An organizer helps you to be on top of everything in your life. It’s your central tool to organize information, to-do lists, projects, and other miscellaneous items.

        These Top 15 Time Management Apps and Tools can help you organize better, pick one that fits your needs.

        5. Know Your Deadlines

        When do you need to finish your tasks? Mark the deadlines out clearly in your calendar and organizer so you know when you need to finish them.

        But make sure you don’t make these 10 Common Mistakes When Setting Deadlines.

        6. Learn to Say “No”

        Don’t take on more than you can handle. For the distractions that come in when you’re doing other things, give a firm no. Or defer it to a later period.

        Leo Babauta, the founder of Zen Habits has some great insights on how to say no: The Gentle Art of Saying No

        7. Target to Be Early

        When you target to be on time, you’ll either be on time or late. Most of the times you’ll be late. However, if you target to be early, you’ll most likely be on time.

        For appointments, strive to be early. For your deadlines, submit them earlier than required.

        Learn from these tips about how to prepare yourself to be early, instead of just in time.

        8. Time Box Your Activities

        This means restricting your work to X amount of time. Why time boxing is good for you? Here’re 10 reasons why you should start time-boxing.

        9. Have a Clock Visibly Placed Before You

        Sometimes we are so engrossed in our work that we lose track of time. Having a huge clock in front of you will keep you aware of the time at the moment.

        10. Set Reminders 15 Minutes Before

        Most calendars have a reminder function. If you have an important meeting to attend, set that alarm 15 minutes before.

        You can learn more about how reminders help you remember everything in this article: The Importance of Reminders (And How to Make a Reminder That Works)

        11. Focus

        Are you multi-tasking so much that you’re just not getting anything done? If so, focus on just one key task at one time. Multitasking is bad for you.

        Close off all the applications you aren’t using. Close off the tabs in your browser that are taking away your attention. Focus solely on what you’re doing. You’ll be more efficient that way.

        12. Block out Distractions

        What’s distracting you in your work? Instant messages? Phone ringing? Text messages popping in?

        I hardly ever use chat nowadays. The only times when I log on is when I’m not intending to do any work. Otherwise it gets very distracting.

        When I’m doing important work, I also switch off my phone. Calls during this time are recorded and I contact them afterward if it’s something important. This helps me concentrate better.

        13. Track Your Time Spent

        When you start to track your time, you’re more aware of how you spend your time. For example, you can set a simple countdown timer to make sure that you finish a task within a period of time, say 30 minutes or 1 hour. The time pressure can push you to stay focused and work more efficiently.

        14. Don’t Fuss About Unimportant Details

        You’re never get everything done in exactly the way you want. Trying to do so is being ineffective.

        Trying to be perfect does you more harm than good, learn here about how perfectionism kills your productivity and how to ditch the perfectionism mindset.

        15. Prioritize

        Since you can’t do everything, learn to prioritize the important and let go of the rest.

        Apply the 80/20 principle which is a key principle in prioritization. You can also take up this technique to prioritize everything on your plate: How to Prioritize Right in 10 Minutes and Work 10X Faster

        16. Delegate

        If there are things that can be better done by others or things that are not so important, consider delegating. This takes a load off and you can focus on the important tasks.

        When you delegate some of your work, you free up your time and achieve more. Learn about how to effectively delegate works in this guide: How to Delegate Work (the Definitive Guide for Successful Leaders)

        17. Batch Similar Tasks Together

        For related work, batch them together.

        For example, my work can be categorized into these core groups:

        1. writing (articles, my upcoming book)
        2. coaching
        3. workshop development
        4. business development
        5. administrative

        I batch all the related tasks together so there’s synergy. If I need to make calls, I allocate a time slot to make all my calls. It really streamlines the process.

        18. Eliminate Your Time Wasters

        What takes your time away your work? Facebook? Twitter? Email checking? Stop checking them so often.

        One thing you can do is make it hard to check them – remove them from your browser quick links / bookmarks and stuff them in a hard to access bookmarks folder. Replace your browser bookmarks with important work-related sites.

        While you’ll still checking FB/Twitter no doubt, you’ll find it’s a lower frequency than before.

        19. Cut off When You Need To

        The number one reason why things overrun is because you don’t cut off when you have to.

        Don’t be afraid to intercept in meetings or draw a line to cut-off. Otherwise, there’s never going to be an end and you’ll just eat into the time for later.

        20. Leave Buffer Time In-Between

        Don’t pack everything closely together. Leave a 5-10 minute buffer time in between each tasks. This helps you wrap up the previous task and start off on the next one.
