There‘s a pair…Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog! Attraction can create strange bedfellows to paraphrase an old expression. You just never know who is going to love who when it comes right down to it. In the case of Miss Piggy and Kermit it was love that was rooted in a brilliant marketing campaign designed to attract both children and adults.
It worked too! Both characters became celebrities and to this day both frequently appear on television shows, at award ceremonies and for charity fundraisers. If you could name a perfect marketing campaign, the joining of these two characters should be at the top of the list.
We can learn a lot from the pig and the frog. Listen to them talk and they believe in themselves. Miss Piggy may come across a bit arrogant, but she is focused at all times. Kermit may waver in the face of such a strong personality, but in the end he is always on track and true to himself. As a result, this team of make-believe animals can sell or promote
To borrow some words from a Creedence Clearwater Revival song Bad Moon Rising, people with negative focus always seem to be singing these words:
Bad times, good times, bad moon, full moon, which do you want to see on the way?
There is an old expression that says we make our own luck. That is a particularly appropriate expression when it comes to business. Did you know that 90% of online businesses will fail within one to two years of start-up? And the common reasons for failure include:
Lack of commitment to the business
Failure to market the business
Failure to provide adequate customer support
Lack of branding
Lack of core values that direct business activities
Lack of planning
Lack of vision
I see a bad moon rising, I see trouble on the way. I see earthquakes and lighting, I see bad times today.
”There are others, but these problems are typically found in businesses that do not survive the intense competition. You may be wondering what this has to do with the Law of Attraction. Well…look at this list closely and you realize there is a common thread that ties each of these items together into a cohesive unit
lack of focus, energy and attention! What are missing is the positive attitude, effort and commitment that brings positive results. Instead the business flounders because negative forces are at work. Lack of interest and low energy lead to a failure to attract new customers or keep existing customers.
The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable, and binds us irrevocably, thought and act.
Another summarization as outlined in the movie The Secret is:
You can attract positive vibrations or you can ask for positive results and become inspired to act in a way that proves your belief in positive results and then act or receive the positive benefits. In other words, you can think of yourself as successful; attract opportunities for success; and then act on those opportunities.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you.
-Henry Ward Beecher
