What Willy Wonka And Einstein Taught Me About Success And The Law of Attraction



Founder: Chris T Atkinson

Hey Chris T Atkinson, A BIG “Gday Mate” to you from Brisbane Australia… That’s the beautiful Brisbane river behind me in the photo!

Welcome to the launch of my brand spanking new website about The Law of Attraction.. Which I aim to make the Number #1 place for helping you to create the life you always dreamed about. As captured in these words I once read:-

Sow a thought and reap a habit…
Sow a habit and reap a character…
Sow a character and reap a destiny…

And it all starts with the seed thoughts we sow(plant) in our minds… Yes “Let Your Thoughts Determine Your Destiny”…

What Willy Wonka And Einstein Taught Me About The Law of Attraction

The Genius of Willy Wonka

I love the above “Pure Imagination” song from “Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory”.. This movie impacted me as a kid, and continues to impact me today! And in future articles I’ll aim to share more about the powerful law of attraction truths in this song and movie if you haven’t discovered them already! Hint it has to do with our imagination? I guess Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein both knew the same success secret. For it was Einstein who said:-

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

And it was Albert Einstein who also said:-

Imagination Has No Limits

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” – Albert Einstein

Guess the genius Einstein and Willy Wonka knew there was more to kids classic stories than meets the eye. For there is a deeper reason that we love certain movies and books we call “The Classics?”.. And the reason is because they contain eternal truths and messages in story form to wake us up from our slumber to discover who we really are… If we have eyes to see and ears to hear!..

This is why Jesus, one of the great law of attraction masters said:

“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” – The Masters Book(Matthew 18:3)

What Our Favorite Classic Movies and Books Tell Us About Ourselves?…

The Classics Shared In Movies Books And Music Form Are The Language of The Heart

For our favorite classic movies and books such as The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Narnia Chronicles, Cinderella, Snow White, Pocahontas, The Lion King, Star Wars, etc, etc (you get the idea)… These “classics” (and there are many more) are much like our favorite music…in that they bypass the mind and open the heart, for they are the language of the heart… And the language of the heart is the language of heaven!…

This is why the great spiritual masters and teachers throughout the ages have always taught timeless and eternal truths through stories(parables)… And this is why the God Force right now is still speaking to us today through these classic movies, books and music to stir us from our slumber.. And to awaken us to the fact that we are dearly loved and that our life matters and that we were put here for a  reason. This is our birthright and our inheritance…

My Goal Is To Help You Be The Best YOU…

We can become our own best Super Hero 🙂

One of the goals of my site is to bring you the very best personal development and law of attraction teaching and tools from past, present and future Masters of Life. To help you become the “Best YOU” you can be. To help you release the GENIUS in you that may be locked up inside you. Like the Genie trapped inside the magic lamp..

For the word Genie in English comes from the Latin word Genius.. ie: Genie-In-Us… And every single person is born a Genius, but sadly only a few discover their Genius… But with a little help I believe we can be one of those few!… For to quote Einstein one last time it was he who said it so perfectly:-

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

There’s an old story that explains your gift to the world…

The story goes that before each of us was born, a gift was given to us to give away to the world once we were born. The problem was after we were born into this world no-one ever told us what this gift was.. And if you happened to find your gift, no one ever explained to you what to do with it.

The story then goes that when you discover the genie living inside the magic lamp that is you (ie the genius living inside you).. The genie will grant you three wishes. For your genie will ask you these three important questions and how we answer them will determine our destinies…

The Three Wishes Of The Magi Genie That Will Determine Your Destiny…

Your Wish Is My Command!

Wish Number 1 from your Genie is:

1.”Do you wish to give your gift only to yourself?”

Wish Number 2 from your Genie is:

2.”Do you wish to give your gift only to those you love who you are close to you?”

Wish Number 3 from your Genie is:

3.”Do you wish to give your gift away to the world?”

How will we answer these questions that is the question?…

And it is my hope that both of us will choose to answer question 3 with the answer, “Yes I choose to give my gift away to the world!”… For it is here in this place of passion and joy in BEing who we really are… And in DOing what we were uniquely created to DO where we will HAVE the life of our dreams.

For here we discover freedom, peace, happiness and fulfillment that comes from giving of who we are… Thus fulfilling the proverb in “The Masters Book of Life” which teaches us that, “It is more blessed to give than to receive”.. For it is in giving that we receive, even as the river gives the water to the thirsty lands and people below only to be refilled again by the mountain rains… thus giving in this way harnesses the law of attraction for you..

And it is a sad thing indeed to see a stagnant blocked river that no longer gives water to others. For we call such things swamps. And here in this place that no longer gives, we find a place of unfit water to drink, that is a breeding place for mosquitoes and all manner of unclean things. Likewise the same is true of the person who has chosen to keep their gift to themselves… A sad thing indeed!..

Take the road less traveled by..

But you and I will be different for we will be like Sam and Frodo from Lord of the Rings traveling toward our destiny… As Robert Frost so aptly said:-

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference” – Robert Frost

How To Discover Your Gift And Genius

But a genius is someone who simply found their gift and gave it to the world! And the Good News is… that after you find your gift and give it to the world, your life will be filled with happiness and wonder…

Yes You Are A Genius! 🙂

For what is a genius?… A genius is simply someone like Albert Einstein who has found the Genie inside themselves, just like Aladdin found the Genie in the bottle… For they have simply found the gift within them… They have found themselves…And discovered the magical genius person living inside them that was there all along unbeknown to them…

For when we discover who we really are… It is then that the ugly duckling is transformed into the beautiful swan! The neglected ragged girl becomes the beautiful and adored Cinderella. And of course Aladdin is transformed into the Prince that he always was even when he stole to survive, living on the streets in the poorer part of town…

Discover The True You!...

Yes you like our heroes in these stories are diamonds in the rough that will soon be found and polished and presented to the world in all your glory! For a lantern light should not be hidden away in the darkness in shame… But rather placed high on a hill to light the way for others…

It’s time to take your place after wondering in the wilderness for years..

And it is my goal that together we are going to help you discover your Genius and who you really are so that you may give your gift to the world… Even as Simba in the movie the “Lion King” takes his rightful place as King after many years of wondering aimlessly in the wilderness… Simba coming into his rightful inheritance with the encouragement of his Father Mufasa’s ghost speaking to him from heaven the following words in this video(words that may resonate with you too!)…

Take your place in the circle of life..

And likewise, just like Simba in the Lion King it is your time to take your place in the circle of life… For your gift is meant to bring happiness and service to the world in some way… And it is here in this place of loving service to the world with your gift, that you will find purpose, fulfillment and joy as you use the law of attraction to draw to you all that you need at exactly the right time…

For it is here that the law of attraction works most powerfully

For when our motives for service are pure, based in love, it is here that the law of attraction works most powerfully. For it is here that the Universe, or the God Force can then bring to us all the people and resources that we need to fulfill our purpose…

This is why it was Aladdin who found the magic lamp. Because Aladdin’s heart was pure.. In other words he had a good heart(not perfect… but a good heart)… he was one of the good guys!.. So I welcome you on this journey of discovery. And I leave you with the words from the Willy Wonka song “Pure imagination”…

“If you want to view paradise simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it…

Wan to change the world?
There’s nothing To it..

There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination
Living there you’ll be free if you truly wish to be” 🙂 …

Helping You Determine Your Destiny

    Got my attention. Looking forward to reading more.

  2. Macy says:

    Hi Chris,
    Great article, I loved it! I’m looking forward to reading more about The Law of Attraction!


  3. Kelly says:

    Thanks Chris,
    It’s nice to hear a bit of positive reinforcement in these times of negativity and despair for the future. You seem to be a very up-beat, imaginative person. I always try to act out of love and attempt to serve others but sometimes other people really have a wall up. Is this the type of thing that you will deal with in your further articles?

    • Hey thanks for commenting Kelly and for your kind words… And yes it is always good to have positive reinforcement to push away all the negativity and despair around… And the good thing is all you have to do on a dark night is flick the light switch on and the darkness has to flee as light(positivity) is far more powerful than darkness(sorry Stephen King lol)…

      And what we focus on determines how much light we’ll carry in us…

      It’s a credit to you Kelly that you aim to act out of love and serve others… And as you say sometimes people will have a wall up… I guess all you can do then is be led by the flow of life within you if you should allow your light to shine on this person or not… As sometimes if a persons eyes aren’t used to the light because they have been dwelling in darkness(ie fear, shame, self hatred, negativity etc) sometimes ones light can be blinding to such people… And the kindest thing can be to not shine it on them..

      It’s like when you’ve been sleeping in the dark and someone suddenly and rudely turns the light switch on…It’s almost blinding… But sometimes you can only shine a little light(if any) on such people and if they are open for more light(ie love) then gradually allow more light(love) to shine on them…

      But your intuition(ie inner-tuition) will guide you in such things… As sometimes the most loving thing you can do is to wipe the dust off your feet and move on…Or as The Masters Book teaches,

      “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces”. The Masters Book(Matthew 7:6)

      Because some people do not value what is true treasure(love)…

      I know this post has been a little long but there was a flow there to share so I did…Hope that helped.. And yes no doubt I will touch on such things in the future as this blog is all about love which is in essence what the law of attraction is…

      And regarding positivity and negativity…To finish I will leave you with the quote by Charles Dickens that sums up how ones focus can effect everything (aka the law of attraction being harnessed or not).. And the quote is:

      “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only”.. – Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities – English novelist (1812 – 1870)

    Hey Chris,
    Love your use of modern day parables, makes it so easy to relate to and understand ;0

    • Hey Anne.. Appreciate you commenting… And happy to hear you love my use of modern day parables…And that’s a great insight you share as I hadn’t thought of it that way.. But yes I like that term you use “Modern Day Parables” for in essence that’s what all the Classics that are modern day books and movies really are… I guess just more high tech versions of the old parables…

      I wonder if some of the great master teachers such as Jesus, Buddha etc were around today they would be in the same league as the Steven Spielbergs of today and others who are harnessing the power of modern day cinematography, books, social media etc to (consciously or unconsciously) help us to awaken from our slumber to who we really are aka Neo in “The Matrix”?

      What do you think?.. Just food for thought..

    Every day is a new beginning, a chance to undo yesterday’s missteps and to take new chances to rock the universe.

    • Absolutely Samuel!!!… I love your enthusiasm and words… Thank God we get to choose to start over again when ever we want… Forgetting what lies behind and pressing forward towards our high calling and destiny to ROCK THE UNIVERSE!

      Thanks Samuel.. You brought a smile to my face with the power of your words… I lift my glass and toast the opportunity we have to take new chances once again!…

    Great article my Aussie friend. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can acheive. – Napoleon Hill. Good positive info is much needed these days. Keep it coming. Wishing you peace, prosperity and blessings in your new endeavor!

    • Hey Dennis my yankee friend.. Good to hear from you!…

      And so true, re Napoleon Hills quote, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve”… This quote has always been one of my fave quotes since the first time I read it in the book “Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude” that Hill co-authored with W. Clement Stone…

      I’ll do my best to keep the positive vibe flowing mate… Go with the FLOW! lol… And thank you for you well wishes… As for my endeavor.. my mind has conceived and believed and it is now achieved! Onwards and upwards my friend… and may you also have peace, prosperity and blessings in all you put your hand to 🙂 …

  8. Adam says:

    Chris your ideas on the law of attraction sounded great and my wife and I very much enjoyed your positive outlook and how you displayed it on your web page made it easy and simple to understand, infact we were so impressed we decided to take your advice. Thank you Adam Brady and wife

    • Hey Adam so good to hear from you… Glad you and your wife enjoyed the positivity of my article and web page… And great to hear that you were both so impressed that you decided to take my advice… As the Universe and the law of attraction is harnessed in a powerful way when people hear truth and take action on it immediately, for it is the truth that sets us free! And blessed are the doers not the hearer’s..So good on you both for being Doers..

      Your wife sounds like an awesome woman to be partnering with you in the law of attraction.. sounds like you must have attracted her to you through the law of attraction… Say hi to her from me!

      I bet once you both focus on what you want with laser like focus and take massive action together as one.. You will then see amazing things happen through the law of attraction..Come back and share all the good that is happening for you both in the following weeks and months…

      And regarding your comment regarding my website and writing being simple to understand… That means a lot to me as it is my intention to make it so.. As our illustriously quoted friend from this article once said:-

      “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” ― Albert Einstein

      Enjoy 🙂

  9. Roger Hooper says:

    Good to see your work Chris. Love that you want to share it and not keep it just for yourself, but I guess as one of my favourite motivators said – “you can have anything you want if you help enough others to have what they want” (Zig Ziglar), it does make sense what you are doing. Anyway, who wants to journey in life by themselves!?

    I look forward to hearing more good stuff from your direction.



    • Hey Roger..Really appreciate your comments… And yeah love old Zig Ziglar words too, ie:”you can have anything you want if you help enough others to have what they want” nobody has to lose in God’s economy of doing things…. Yes everyone gets to win…

      A Win Win philosophy of doing life is always to be preferred over a win lose scenario where someone wins and someone loses…

      The old saying being true “Give and you Will Receive” in all aspects of life!…

      Thank you for your encouragement Roger and I too look forward to sharing more good stuff from my direction as well as hearing the good stuff happening from your direction!…

    This is great stuff.

    • hey thanks Jodie.. Anything in particular speak to you?…

      • Jodie says:

        What Einstein, said about fairy tales. I was pretty much brought up to feel that fantasy has no place in my life. I don’t generally like fantasy, but these fairy tales never seem like fantasy to me, and every time i watch one of my favorite classics I am reminded, REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.

        • Thanks so much for sharing that Jodie.. sounds like your inner child wasn’t really cherished or nourished growing up… As a parent we all do our best as I am sure your parents did… But if only we realized how damaging it can be to try and force a child to be someone they are not!..

          The fairy tale CLASSICS that you are drawn to never seem like fantasy to you because they aren’t fantasy but reality, the reality of WHO YOU REALLY ARE.. continue to REMEMBER and EMBRACE WHO YOU REALLY ARE… Because YOU ARE AWESOME! …

          Thanks again for sharing that Jodie 🙂 ..

  11. Bill Joren says:

    Man I never thought about movies this way chris… this is causing me to reevaluate a few things as the movies I love all have the common theme of escaping the matrix… I believe I am meant to start an online business based on what I love doing to escape the 9 to 5 rat race matrix.. and I’m now going to no longer ignore these feelings.. Now where to start?… thanks for the inspiration from your article!

    Bill Joren

    • Hey Bill.. thanks for leaving a comment and glad to hear your listening to your heart as this is the starting place to getting the law of attraction working for you..

      A good resource re where to start in regards to escaping the 9-5 rat race is a free report one of my mentors put out that has to do with building a income producing blog (based around your passions hobbies and interests)… You can get it here if you are interested:-

  13. KellyK says:

    Hi Chris,

    Well I’m so happy for you to have this finally launched! What an amazing and unique site this and I truly have felt even more inspired than ever to pursue the dreams and ideals I have had running in my mind for a long time! That being a way to discover how one person, one community even, can ask a simple question: “What would happen if we all just started to love each other?” What would happen to crime, greed, back stabbing, hatred, etc….and on and on. This is a great place to start; to give me inspiration as well, and to stay focused on what I want to accomplish with the rest of my life. Some of my years weren’t so lovely, but it’s never too late, ever, to believe in everything that God promises me; in His universe; all is ours! Thanks for a really awesome site to get a ton of inspiration from! Hope to see you on facebook sometime too!


    • Hey KellyK 🙂

      Thanks for your kind words… And Great to hear that you are feeling even more inspired than ever to pursue your dreams and ideals you’ve have had running in your mind for ages after visiting here!..

      I love your dream that you have to discover how:-

      One person, one community even, can ask a simple question: “What would happen if we all just started to love each other?”

      I love it because it is a dream I share also!…

      I am happy to share this journey and dream with you and will do my best to help inspire and flame to reality all the dreams God has placed within you…
