What’s The Secret? Why Isn’t The Law Of Attraction Working For Me?


Have you seen the movie or read the book titled, “The Secret” yet?  If you have, remember how you felt when you watched it for the first time?  Did you have a great sense of relief in knowing that your life can be any way you wish? All you have to do is ask the universe and it will answer in the form of making your dreams come true?  I clearly remember the excitement that filled my heart, knowing that – Yes, I can accomplish all my dreams  – FINALLY!

But how many of us soon experienced that excitement and new found hope fade away into frustration? How many of you reading this now (and be honest with yourself) started thinking thoughts like:

– “It seems to be working for other people, but It’s not working for me no matter how hard I try.”

– “Sometimes it seems to work for me, but sometimes I just doesn’t. What’s am I missing here?”

– “Why can’t I seem to get it?”

– “I think the universe is against me.”

– “I’m trying my best, but still nothing is happening for me!”

Don’t worry people, you’re not alone with thoughts like these. Around 97% of people were also disappointed with their results from trying the law of attraction for the first time. Think about this, just like anything else in  your life, you have to practice over and over again before you see success.  Even Thomas Edison, the great inventor, tried over 1,000 times to succeed with his invention of the light bulb.  Until finally one day, he succeeded.  Remember, that a toddler doesn’t learn to walk without falling over a many times, right?

But when put into practice, almost everything is easier said than done. Once you’ve become frustrated, it’s often difficult to stay positive. And it’s especially harder to stay positive when it seems everything around you is screaming negativity.  Like an unstable economy or senseless acts of violence that have become more and more the norm in the world we live in.

And just like you learned from the movie, “The Secret”, what happens when you fail to keep a positive outlook? That’s right – you begin to attract negative things in to your life.  The things you think and worry about most.

So how can we make the Law of Attraction work for us – without getting disgusted from frustration? How do people that are successfully using the Law of Attraction do it with such confidence?  On demand whenever they want?

Well, let me share 3 quick tips so you will never feel frustrated again.  And once you’ve applied these tips, you will begin to know how to start manifesting like a pro.

1. You Must Allow Yourself To Receive

Just like a child who approaches his mother and asks, “Mom, can I have some candy? Can I? Can I? Can I? Can I? Can I?” Well, if the child goes on and on asking, His Mother can’t even give an answer, right?

Well, this is the same principle when it comes to your mind. If the only thing your mind is doing is transmitting, transmitting, transmitting, the universe–which is trying to respond–is unable to give you anything because you’re not allowing yourself to receive!

So, begin to have confidence in yourself.  Stop exhausting yourself by running around from person to person begging for riches.  Then puzzled wondering why nobody is dropping a a dime in your cup. (Hint: This is because you’re running away to quickly before they can even reach for their wallet).

Just concentrate on your desires and leave it out there for the universe.  Go away, and have faith that your cup will be filled with gold coins (or whatever it is you asked for) when the time is right.  Most importantly, you have to believe.

2. You Must Be Patient With Yourself

To receive takes time.

Sadly, most people give up just a few steps before the finish line.  This is because they’ve decided that if it’s not working by now, it will never work at all. Even worse, there are those who throw in more and more energy because they think that results will come faster.

This would be like expecting 9 mothers to conceive and deliver a baby in 1 month or trying to bake a batch of cookies in half the time by doubling the temperature of the oven. This will burn those cookies to a crisp!

Simplified: Everything in the world around us has a natural development time.  This is a fact that you cannot change.  And it doesn’t matter what additional energy or resources you throw at it.

So just relax and learn to be patient. Remember that you are also part of the universe.  And you are also governed by the same laws that apply to the universe.  You cannot change the natural development time of things.

Try to remember this and you will be much less likely to get worked up and frustrated.  This will also prevent you from entering a downward spiral of negativity.

3. You Must Support and Educate Yourself

Like a child who is first learning to walk, we need support. We also need special guidance on how to do it, and also role models to look up to.

Unfortunately, most people give up because they think that “The Secret” is a “means-to-an-end” solution. Well, many experts will tell you, that it’s NOT. The Law of Attraction as seen in “The Secret” is just a small portion of the formula. It was never intended to be the “Whole Answer”,  and never has been.

So coming to the conclusion that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work after watching “The Secret” 29 times and never changing your habits in the other areas of your life, is the same as coming to the conclusion that exercising on a treadmill 2 hours a day isn’t helping you lose weight while you are still stuffing yourself with cheeseburgers, sodas and french fries.

So find knew sources of knowledge and educate yourself on the other aspects of the laws of the universe. Also, make an effort to surround yourself with others that are serious about self improvement.  There are many local groups in your area that meet to learn from each other and are also anxious to help others and share new knowledge.

While the Law of Attraction is not an next day delivery service, it will indeed deliver to you, if you are willing to do your part too!
