Using the Law of Polarity to Get Anything You Want

"The Law Of Polarity is Far More Exciting Than The Law Of Attraction"

One of my claims to fame as a Success Coach is my ability to help women identify what they truly want and then work out how to make it happen (and fast).

I love watching my clients unearth their desires, bring them to the surface, and proclaim them loud and clear for the entire world to hear.

Yet oftentimes it takes poking, prodding, and a whole lot of encouragement to get the women I work with to even admit what they want.

They have so many doubts, fears, insecurities, and judgments about their desires.

They wonder if they can truly have the…

Dream house….

Five-star vacation…

Upgrade on the plane….

Five-figure client…

And even that cleaner….

“Is it possible?” they ask.

“And do I deserve it?”

“Isn’t it greedy to want more? Shouldn’t I just be grateful for what I have? Should I be (gasp) realistic?”

Oh, the “R” word.

“I don’t believe in realistic,” I tell them. “And even if I did, you create your own version of realistic.”

When my clients ask those questions, it’s my job to bring one simple phrase to their attention: Everything you want wants you back.

You see, I believe that our desires are truly dropped in. They are a part of us—just like our DNA. I also believe that, because our desires are dropped in and because everything we want wants us back, we can trust that the goals we want to achieve, the love we’re destined for, the money we want to make—it’s all possible and it’s all actually already present.

This is exactly what the Law of Polarity illustrates.

“According to the Law of Polarity, everything is dual—so things that appear to be opposites are actually two inseparable parts of the same thing. Think of hot and cold, for example—although they’re opposites, they’re actually on the same continuum and you cannot have one without the potential for the other.” (

You may be reading that and thinking: Why haven’t I heard of this before?

It’s true; most people don’t know about this Law. But in my opinion, the Law of Polarity is far more exciting than the Law of Attraction.

It’s saying that you’re already on the continuum of wealth! Already on the continuum of the dream house. Already on the continuum of the best-selling book you want to write.

According to the Law of Polarity, when it comes to your desires, wealth, and the life you want to create, there may have been a period of time when, for example, you couldn’t afford to take a trip (maybe that time is right now). But if you can’t do something, that means you still have the potential to do it at the same time.

Maybe today, you don’t like the number in your bank account. There isn’t enough and you want more, yet you’re not sure if it’s possible for you. Well, wealth and being broke are on the same continuum—abundance!

If you’re capable of one, then you’re capable of the other.

You can also think about this in terms of human potential, because sometimes it’s easier to see possibility in others before we see it in ourselves.

For example, when you board a plane and walk down the aisle to your economy seat, you can see people sitting in business class or first class. They are there, and you can see them. So even if you don’t believe an upgraded seat is possible for you yet, you can see that it is possible for other humans.

And if you’re wondering how I was able to transform my own life and go from making $442 a month to a seven-figure business, this is it.

I focused on the fact that even though some of my desires weren’t my current reality, there were people out there doing them all the time, so the potential was there for humans in general. And since I’m human, I finally realized the potential was there for me too.

(That’s where my “why not me” philosophy comes from.)

What I’m saying is: even if you don’t have everything you desire today, it can be right around the corner because it literally already exists!

Finally, do you want to know the most important part of this process? Once you believe your desires are possible for you, take action. (I’m not a sit-on-the-mountaintop-and-wish-it-into-reality sort of gal.)

And here are four simple steps to get you into action on behalf of your dreams:

  1. Write down five things you desire right now.
  2. See yourself getting them in your mind. Feel the possibility.
  3. Now write down a simple action you could take to get those five things (they may be different steps).
  4. Start today!

I can’t wait to see you shift from one side of the continuum to the other.
