We’ve accomplished a lot of difficult things in our lives as attorneys.
We scored well on the LSAT.
We passed our law school exams, and then the bar.
We’ve done the hard legal research, we’ve written the lengthy briefs, we’ve drafted the detailed agreements and we’ve argued persuasively against opposing counsel and before judges.
And for many of these tasks, we wished we could have just snapped our fingers and had this work drafted, proofread and completed.
But since there is no magic bullet, we did the next best thing – we tried to get leverage in some way. We got study guides or got the help of a tutor or joined a study group or fired up Lexis or pulled in an associate to help us.
But leaving the law is different. It’s hard to motivate to leave. It’s hard to admit we want to do something else. It’s so hard to change.
How to get leverage to leave the law
Leverage is the use of something else in order to gain the maximum advantage.
It’s why the Phoenician sailors began to use the wind and the Egyptian pyramid builders used levers and pulleys.
The biggest leverage we have to initially leave the law is our emotions.They’re not far.They’re right inside of us. When we have faith in our emotions as solid leading indicators, we can then harness their power of visualization.
And when we harness their power of visualization, we are then able to gain the maximum impact of our wishes, our aspirations, our intentions.
If we want to leave the law, our emotions can point us in the right direction.
A simple machine such as a pulley can help you effectively multiply the force your body produces.
And your emotions can help you effectively multiply the force your mind and soul produce.
What are your emotions telling you?
