Does The Law Of Attraction Work

You maybe one of those folks who have watched ‘The Secret’ or read the book. Or you may just have heard about the power of the law of attraction. Anything to do with positive thinking and self improvement will usually have something to do with the law of attraction, even if it is only just a loose connection.

Many people think that if they just focus their mind on becoming a millionaire, then it will happen. After all, that’s what the books and movies say. But many people feel it is not that easy, no matter what they have seen or read.

The question is does the law of attraction work?

Let us look closer at what the law of attraction is meant to be. Do an internet search and you will see one common theme which basically states that whatever we focus our minds on, good or bad, it will happen in our lives.

And one famous author once wrote: ‘What the mind can believe, man can conceive’. I may not have that word perfect but it is along those lines.

So what's the problem with the law of attraction? The first problem is not much in terms of what is wrong with the law of attraction and more about the problem is with us.

We believe that thinking a thought without taking any action will bring it into our lives. We also spend far too much time thinking of the things we don’t want. And then they appear instead of the things we do want.

What I am getting at is that the law of attraction works fine. It is just the way we are using it.

You may feel that you have been doing all that you should be doing to manifest your desires into reality but nothing ever seems to happen. If that is the case, it is usually down to one of the two reasons mention above. You are thinking but not combining it with action or you are concentrating on what you don’t want instead of what you do want.

Think of it this way. When a person is in debt, he or she should be focusing on positive ways to raise their weekly or monthly income. They should be thinking about becoming more wealthy and not on the debt itself.

This is easier than it sounds and I speak from personal experience. I have been in a lot of debt and instead of focusing on making more money and making a plan to combine my thoughts with, I spent far too much time worrying about the debt itself, which just led to more debt. I often asked myself back then: "does the law of attraction work?", but once I changed my focus and took action, things began to change for the better.

In many cases, most people make the mistake of not combining the positive thoughts with action, and that is a fundamental mistake.

If you don’t get it by now, we manifest what we think about, no matter if it is good or bad.

So before asking yourself "does the law of attraction work?", you need to be clear and sure of exactly what it is you want to come into your life and what steps you can take to make it happen.
