Successful people attract people to them because their story gives people hope that they too can be successful, whatever success means to them.
People are attracted to the higher vibrations of successful people like moths to a flame. It is the energy that attracts them; they want to draw on this energy for themselves. They usually do not consciously know why they are attracted to successful people, but this is why: they want bask in that the Higher Energy that the successful person gives off, they want to soak it up for themselves. When the crowd goes to see the famous figure live, when they tune in to the TV to watch a celebrity being interviewed or when they read a success story it is pure energetic self-interest.
Self-interest explains away almost all of human behaviour, good or bad.
Tuning into this Higher Energy heals people’s wounds. And, via art (music, poetry, paintings, movies, etc) the expression of pain, conflict and difficult emotions (in the art) helps people to acknowledge and identify with their own emotional baggage.
Knowing and relating to other people’s pain helps us to feel better about our own lives. And for many of us, the different art forms, music especially, helps us to heal by expressing what we don’t fully know how to self-express.
