Provide a solution to a need and you become a magnet.
A flower evolved perfume, colour and nectar to attract insects such as bees to pollinate it. Like anything in life the individual has to plant seeds for anything to grow, to offer the world something attractive to attract opportunities. Do nothing, gain nothing.
Over a week ago I regained ownership of my laptop bag from the cat Helix, denied its favoured bag to sleep upon the homeless cat then vanished upstairs, so it felt empty working on my laptop with no cat sleeping near me. In the UK Boxing Day sales I purchased at a bargain price a sleeping bed for a small dog at £3.50, placed the bed near me, then let nature take its course. Helix found the bed and as I hoped adopted it as its new sleeping base, I now have a cat back near me curled up like a happy sleeping ball.
To attract people, animals, plants or opportunities into your life, you have to invest resources of time, energy and money into things that they need. There is nothing mystical about becoming a magnet; understand what the other party needs then provide it.
