The 'real' Law of Attraction - in actionby Jake Smolarek
The thing about the Law of Attraction is that it works. All the time
It doesn't matter if you know about it, agree with it or not, or don't understand it - it's always going to work. It's like gravity. If you lose your grip on a coffee, it's not going to ask for your permission to fall on the pavement. And if you decide to stop believing in gravity, you won't suddenly float off into space.
It'll always work, no matter whether you want it or not. The same principle goes for the Law of Attraction.
But, what actually is the law of attraction - and how does it work?
In simple terms, it just means that 'like attracts like.' Positive thoughts attract positive things. And negative thoughts attract negative things. Simple.
But there's more to it than just thoughts. Every single person is a living magnet, meaning we radiate ideas and energy. Because we are all sending out energy and looking to receive it, we connect with people on our level—the people who are sending out similar thoughts and energy.
Just like a magnet has two sides, so do you. If you refuse to think negatively, you'll repel pessimistic people. So, if we want to attract different people, different circumstances, and a different environment, we have to change the way we think. And the law of attraction doesn't just stop at thoughts; it begins there.
No one is capable of controlling every thought that pops into their head. The only thing you can do is to choose which thoughts we focus on. You need to actively give space to positive thoughts and spend less time dwelling on the negative ones. Choose to consider positivity even if there isn't much of it.
Think about your goal
Maybe you want to run a marathon. Or you want to get a promotion. Perhaps you wake up one morning, and you say that you want to buy a red BMW.
If you put focus and energy into that thought and concentrate your thinking around it, you'll start to see red BMWs everywhere. This is called manifesting. It's like an opportunity. It's astounding how many opportunities and benefits people who radiate positivity attract. Why? Because you become what you think about.
That's the law of attraction. Think about the red BMW, and imagine it's your goal. If you keep on thinking about that red BMW, you'll start to notice whenever one passes you by. You'll see it everywhere. Because you have it at the forefront of your mind, you'll look for ways and opportunities to see and buy that red BMW and follow those paths to reach your goal.
Get clear about who you want to be and what you want. Start generating positive feelings. Focus on what's good, and remain optimistic about improving and bringing change in your life. You'll be surprised how quickly and effectively you start seeing changes.
Imagine what kind of person you want to be, and act like them, focus on thinking like a magnet of positivity, and you'll become one.
If you focus on who you are not or who you believe yourself to be, that's who you'll be, or that's who you'll remain. How are you supposed to make changes if you haven't even thought about what you want to change?
Thoughts translate into actions. Positive actions attract positive actions, positive people, and positive circumstances.
It all begins with changing your mindset.
