This instrument of communication is a moment-to- moment projection of your thoughts and feelings onto the world. Based on whatever you send out, the world responds to you. Your attitude is a powerful tool which can be used effectively to attract desired people, things, and circumstances into your life experience. The two primary components of attitude are projection and perception. Your self-image is communicated or projected to

93 others through your attitude. This communication projected by you is then perceived by others, and they respond accordingly. If you desire other people to be friendly, kind, and generous towards you, then you must project just those qualities in your attitude toward them. To use your attitude most effectively, you must recognize these two components and strive to make the projection and perception of your self-image one and the same. The communication that you project through your attitude has two parts: the thoughts and images you project, and the feelings you have inside about those thoughts and images, which you also project. When you interact with another person through your attitude, that person receives both parts of your communication. However, they perceive and usually respond to the feeling part, no matter what the thinking part says. For example, you meet a new business associate who wants to impress you. He or she starts to share their ideas and vision which sound incredible. But, for some reason you have a gut feeling that this person is not all he or she claims to be. You respond accordingly with searching questions, looking for inconsistencies. Here, the ideas being projected by the new associate were not consistent with the feelings being perceived by you, and you reacted accordingly. Later, you usually find that your gut feeling was accurate. When the attitude projected and perceived are one and the same, you become magnetic, attracting people and situations which will benefit you. If that same new The Universal Law of Human Magnetism

If you felt nothing but sincerity, honesty, and a deep sense of commitment radiating from the new associate as he or she shared the same thoughts and vision in the first example, you would be the first to offer your support and help them in any way. If you feel that most people seem to misunderstand you and your intentions most of the time, this could be a result of a contradiction between the thoughts and the feelings you project though your attitude. There is no simple attitude projection or reception formula. How others respond to your attitude is a combination of what you are projecting in thoughts and feelings, and the state of mind of the perceiver, the other person.
