One of the best things about the law of attraction and the fantastic results that come from it is that you can use it just about anywhere – including in the workplace.
Some people make the mistake of thinking that they have to have a certain space in which to manifest, meditate and do anything else that serves as part of their law of attraction routine. However, this is not actually the case – as long as you’re somewhere that you can think, speak or write (and the first is basically a given) then you can use the law of attraction.
It makes perfect sense to want to use the law of attraction in the workplace. It’s where you probably spend the majority of your time outside the home. It’s also intrinsically linked to your goals and ambitions, and not just the ones related to your career goals. If you’ve got a vision board with a new house or car, dream holidays and basically anything else that involves building wealth, it is closely linked to your workplace – even if your main goal is getting out as quickly as possible!
Using the Law of Attraction in the Workplace
The biggest restriction you’ll have in terms of making use of the law of attraction at work is the kind of job you do. If you spend all day in a private office, you’re better off than most. If you take five or ten minutes to jot something in your manifestation journal, it appears to the outside world like you’re working on something. If you like to speak out loud when invoking the law, you can probably get away with that too. Even if it’s difficult, just hold the phone to your ear and you’ll appear to be doing something important.
That’s the ideal scenario, but that doesn’t describe every job. If a large part of your work involves driving then you have more important things to concentrate on, and the law of attraction works best when you can give it your full attention. Meditation out on the road is a big no-no, of course, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on visualising your dreams while you work. You have other advantages, such as being able to listen to whatever you want. You probably also have significant downtime throughout the day while you wait in your vehicle for something. There’s no better time to grab the journal or vision board from the glove box and lose yourself in thought during the brief time you have.
With a little thought, you can apply it to just about any job. The law of attraction helped me and many other to become more productive and to manage our time more effectively. In most roles, the better you handle your time in the workplace, the more you have to devote to other things. If you can get into the habit of using the law of attraction as a priority during this downtime, you can greatly speed up your manifestations and dreams.
Three Tips to Use the Law of Attraction in the Workplace
So, that covers when you can use the law of attraction in the workplace, but what about how? The good news is that anything that works well for you at home can work equally well at work, and you should never need an additional reason to focus positive thoughts on what you want.
Here are three great ways to utilise the law of attraction at work, potentially without the need to do anything all that differently to what you do already.
1. Make Journaling a Priority
As a writer, I have always found journaling and scripting to be the best way to make the law of attraction work for me. I’m not much of a talker at the best of times, and it’s even more difficult when it feels like I’m talking to nobody in particular. A journal can make all the difference.
The great thing about this is it’s small enough to keep in a bag if you go the physical route, or easy enough to store in the cloud if you opt for a digital vision journal. You can access it any time and anywhere. I find that writing down what I want, even if it’s repeating something I’ve written previously, helps me to focus on what I want to achieve on that day and in the future.

2. Put Up a Vision Board at Work
I’m in the camp that believes that vision boards can and will work even if the owner pays no particular attention to the law of attraction. I wrote recently about a friend who has made a career out of speaking on the subject of vision boards, and hadn’t even heard of the law of attraction before I introduced him to it.
However, in combination, they’re one of the most potent tools available. I also believe that if you want to achieve peak effectiveness in using the law of attraction, a vision board is a must.
If you don’t have one already, we have numerous articles already available here on the site covering the subject extensively. Check out our bumper introduction to vision boards for the full lowdown, and I’d also personally recommend this feature on how to make a vision board for work for obvious reasons.
Ideally, you’ll be able to put your vision board up on constant display in the workplace for it to work effectively. However, I can completely appreciate that this isn’t always the case. If you spend a lot of time in a vehicle, work in a kitchen or are rarely in the same place, choosing a wall and sticking with it simply isn’t overly practical. What I would suggest instead is going down the digital route and making your vision board on a phone or computer. You can then set it as the background on your devices, so it’s there when you check your phone and ready for you when you start your laptop. In many cases, you’ll find yourself looking at the board more regularly than someone who has it one fixed place, and that’s definitely a good thing.
3. Fill in the Gaps with Affirmations
Affirmations are another key component of making the law of attraction work on your behalf, and they are beautiful in their flexibility. You could be in the car, on the train, packing an order or doing anything else your work involves. All you have to do is say the words, and you don’t even necessarily need to do so out loud.
Many suggest that affirmations have to take the form of ‘I am’, and they have a point. I have also had success with ‘I will’ affirmations. They don’t use the present tense that’s so highly advisable in this context, but they do form a commitment between you and the universe that you’re going to get something done, and help is at hand through the power of attracting your preferred outcome.
If you’re on a rest break, I’ve seen plenty of success by people reciting their affirmations back to themselves in the mirror. If that’s not possible, just think them or say them out loud even when nobody is listening, as the universe is always paying attention.
If affirmations are not yet part of your law of attraction routine, you’ll find an introduction covering everything you need to get started here.
Can You Use the Law of Attraction at the Workplace? – In Summary
Yes, you absolutely can use the law of attraction in the workplace. Indeed, outside of your home, it is probably the most powerful place in which to use it overall. So many dreams, goals and ambitions are intrinsically linked to the workplace that there are more reasons to use it there than not to, and if you’re not already using the opportunities outlined above for this very purpose, I would suggest starting right away!
