Third, the law of attraction can also be used by managers to enhance the level of motivation within the workplace (Adams 58). According to Adams, the thoughts that are harbored by a person subsequently turn into results (58). The author recommends that the manager should focus on positive thoughts towards motivation and avoid pondering about the lack of motivation within a workplace because doing so helps in achieving positive results (Adams 58). Aside from this, employees with low levels of motivation emit negative energy in the workplace, which requires immediate action from the manager.
Allowing people to become de-motivated with work tends to affect the atmosphere in the workplace that also affects the motivation levels of other employees who previously did not have any reason to be de-motivated. A remedy for this problem includes actions from the managers to increase the levels of motivation among the employees in order for them to exhibit a positive energy that also affects other employees in the workplace. Fourth, the manager can encourage members of a particular team to engage in positive thoughts and working relationships in order to enhance the productivity of the team (Institute for Management Excellence).
In line with the law of attraction, it is assumed that the thoughts of a member can affect the thoughts of other people. Considering the fact that employees within a team work together more frequently than the rest, the likelihood of adopting the same line of thinking is highly possible. For example, an employee, who thinks that the project that their team is working on is going to be successful, is able to encourage the other employees to think the same way that would greatly help in doing the tasks assigned.
Also, an employee that performs according to the responsibilities assigned can affect the way his/her teammates perceive the tasks given to them. On the other hand, an individual who thinks that the project is doomed to fail will more likely fail in his tasks and affect the ability of others to succeed in the tasks related to the project. Likewise, negative thoughts about the team activities may also affect the overall success of the project and the willingness of people to work.
Lastly, the employees and managers can use the law of attraction to help them in achieving professional and personal success (Edwards 222). Based on the law of attraction, the employees should be careful in selecting the people whom they spend a considerable amount of their time in the workplace. Where it is possible, an employee should work with people who provide positive thoughts towards work. Likewise, the employee should be reminded that it is important to become associated with employees who exhibit good professional habits because it also affects their attitude.
In addition to this, the employee should also be careful in considering the values of the organization or team that he/she would join because it can affect his/her general outlook towards his/her career. Conclusion The law of attraction states that a person, thought, or objects are attracted towards another person, thought, or objects based on similar characteristics. The use of the law of attraction is extensive in relation to human beings because of its applicability in daily interaction and association with other people.
In relation to this, the law of attraction can be used for the purpose of understanding employees within the workplace and in recommending strategies for using the law of attraction for effective purposes. Among the uses of the law of attraction include as improving the work atmosphere, sharing organization’s vision to other employees, planning for motivation techniques, enhancing teamwork to drive towards effective performance, and achieving success in the employees’ personal and professional lives.
The use of the law of attraction for several purposes directly affects the performance of the employees in the workplace because of its contribution towards increasing positive thoughts, perceptions, visions, and behavior towards work. Indeed, the law of attraction is understood in terms of its appeal to the behavior of people to be attracted towards others. The said law can be used for the purpose of improving the performance of people within a workplace. In addition, it is a powerful tool that is made available for the managers.
