The Downside To Law Of Attraction

A while ago, I posted an article discussing what I called the "downside to the law of attraction".

The downside I referred to was that you get whatever you focus upon. So if you neglect to train yourself to focus on what you want, rather than on what you don't want, you will continue to get more of what you don't want.

For me that is the reason why personal development is so key. In order for me to create wealth and freedom in my life, I must first teach myself to focus on the wealth and freedom that I desire -- rather than focusing on its absence.

The better I get at doing that, the more quickly I'm going to attract the ideas, circumstances and inspiration that will lead me to create more wealth and freedom in my life.

So to me that's the whole point of a self improvement (personal development) regimen. It's about training my thinking patterns in a way that will better serve me.

As I've said before, this is so deceptively simple, yet it can be extremely challenging. I heard an audio by Dr. Wayne Dyer quite some time ago in which he said that we have something like 60,000 thoughts per day, but for most of us it's essentially the same 60,000 thoughts as we had yesterday.

Law of attraction works, whether we're aware of it or not. If we're not aware, then that's the downside -- law of attraction still works. We just give up the opportunity to apply it deliberately in our day-to-day lives.

So for now, forgive me ... it's time for my daily visualization. :-)

Hi there Warren, your post today in right on the mark.

I'm discovering that most folks frankly go into some form of "denial" whenever the Law of Attraction come us.

One of the things that the "Law" demands of us is that we must take 100% responsibility for our entire life. This very function throws people into a tail spin. It causes us to recognize (admit) that absolutely nothing outside of us caused us to be where we are today. We got here by ourselves.

You nailed by highlighting the very fact that if we focus on what we don't have, we just get much more of what we don't have. The ultimate vicious cycle.

The saving grace though, is that the "Law" has no discrimination, and works just the same the other way around.

Geez man, there is hope.
