There is nothing more important than your own development...
OK let's talk about the Law of Attraction...I know some people find it a bit 'out there' or woo woo but a not too hard look at your life will make it pretty evident that as Earl Nightingale says 'we become what we think about'.
Whilst some authors and teachers like Stephen Covey, Tony Robbins and indeed the wonderful Mr Nightingale, all of which are among my favourites, have not used the law by name, they are all (as are many others) in my view, using the underlying principles and process as a basis of promoting the benefits of self and personal development.
This process, which at its simplest means being proactive in deciding what you want, asking for it in the positive, seeing it and feeling like you have it already, being persistent and consistent in this, and taking consistent action to move you forward is tried and tested.
Of course there are others such as Bob Proctor, Bob Doyle, Rhonda Byrne, James Ray and Joe Vitale who are much more comfortable with talking about the law overtly but as you will notice in their books there is still a process which in most cases is not too different to the one I have just outlined.
What is important to understand is that everything is energy and therefore the law operates anyway, it is always 'on' - so if you think it either does not work or that it is inconsistent, then you are right - it is important to realise that your mixed results are because you are spending a lot of time with mixed thinking and feelings.
If we think about something enough (good or bad) that it creates a feeling, this then creates a vibration or frequency that resonates into the world that then provides the attraction or pull towards of what ever it is, to you.
You only have to think of the times you really wanted something a lot, then think about the process I have outlined above to realise that you got it because,
1) You really wanted it (in the positive)
2) You thought about it a lot and consistently (saw it)
3) You pretended you already had it (felt it)
4) You took repeated action to get it
All of this put you in the right frequency/energy/vibration that was then in resonance with your desire which then created the circumstances and conditions for it to start to move towards you.
Knowing this, let's use this wonderful ability we are blessed with for good and let go of the idea this stuff doesn't work.
It does and we all know it.
