The Law of Attraction ExplainedWhile it''s gotten a fair bit of media attention of late, the law of attraction never quite gets a simple, easy explanation as to what it is and how it works. In a nutshell, the Law of Attraction is that like attracts like, or, in the realm of personal development, the law of attraction is that you get what you think about.
If your mind is focused on debt, if you''re obsessed about problems and stressing out about how your life is difficult, then that''s what your life will attract for future states of mind. If your mind is focused on the positive aspects of success, that you have money, and that you''re focusing on your positive achievements, then that''s what will come to you as the result of your positive mental efforts.
Thinking about your future in the present tense is important; it''s why the preceding paragraph was written the way it was. You must be able to see yourself in the circumstances you envision and desire for the Law of Attraction to benefit you rather than harm you!
Putting your desires into the future tense creates a barrier of expectations to overcome. It''s all too easy to think of the indeterminate future as being too far away to influence or matter. Saying "someday" you want to get out of debt and become financially secure, you''ll remain mired in debt and in your current state, unless you actualize it into the present tense.
While the Law of Attraction seems like hocus pocus, and revolutionary, it''s built on the same techniques that sports physiotherapists have used for training professional athletes ? to visualize the outcome of what they''re doing and act as if every shot, every pitch, every swing, every basket, is made perfectly with a pure follow through. Furthermore, the law of attraction has a lot of anecdotal evidence you''ve already known. Has there been something in your life that you always felt was destined to happen, that you''ve always felt "would be"? This can be as mundane as believing and assuming that you''d graduate from high school, or as inspiring as believing that you''d always date the person of your dreams and make a happy life together. Thinking about these goals in the present tense removes the barriers to achieving them, and lets the law of attraction work for you, and is a common illustration of the Law of Attraction in action in personal development.
Ultimately, you''ll get what''s on your mind ? that''s what the Law of Attraction means. Make sure that what you''re attracting to yourself with your mental outlook is a positive influence, rather than a negative one. When you think negative thoughts (even when you talk negatively), you bring negativity into your life.
