Why Doesn’t the Law of Attraction Work for Everyone?

As soon as you say that you practice the Law of Attraction, you’ll hear the detractors coming at you. “I tried it for two months and got nothing.” “Yeah, I won a vacation in a contest – but the taxes were huge!” “Who can be positive all the time? That’s just foolishness.”

That’s what you’ll hear from people who claim to be Law of Attraction dropouts. The fact is, they never really dropped in. They heard or read something about the Law of Attraction, but they didn’t really practice it.

No wonder they didn’t get the results they wanted.  The Law of Attraction works. What doesn’t work is a half-hearted attempt to use it like a catalog ordering form. It’s not a “blab it and grab it” concept.

If it were magic, then you could call out what you want, wave a magic wand and it would appear. The Law of Attraction is not magic – it’s energy. Energy can be redirected, but that takes focus and effort.

The Law of Attraction does nothing for cynics who hold out their hand while snarling at the process. Let’s say a person decides to test this by proclaiming, “I want to see a Ferrari in my garage tomorrow.”

That person did not sincerely ask, is not sure if he believes in this, but would gladly receive if it happens. The next day, he sees his dented old truck in the garage and says, “See? That didn’t work at all!”

Of course the Law of Attraction didn’t work – because it was not applied properly. What if you have a sincere desire to learn the Law of Attraction and still don’t see results? Look around at what has come into your life.

Did you ask for tranquility, only to lose your high-pressure job? After losing that job, you found the courage to walk away from the corporate world and take a lesser paying job in an art museum.

In order to bring tranquility into your life, you had to lose first before you win. Because energy is fluid, you had to get out of a negative, stressful path in order to receive the tranquility you desired on a positive, calming career path.

Belief is the center point on which the Law of Attraction balances. The universe holds endless opportunities – whether or not you believe you are worthy of them. If you don’t believe, the opportunities will not invade your life.

It’s only when you believe that you can have a new opportunity and you deserve that opportunity do you actually put yourself in a position to receive it.  Putting yourself in a position to receive takes time and effort that is sometimes ignored and never engaged.

If the ideal mate for you is in Atlanta and you’re not confident enough about your abilities to accept the transfer to the Atlanta office, then you’re not in a position to meet that person.

Your energies may connect in a future time and place when you really focus on it, but look at the time you waste by missing the opportunity. The Law of Attraction is part of an orderly universe that at times must set up the circumstances by delaying one opportunity until you are in a position to receive.

That’s not a denial – that’s an orderly transition.

Over the centuries, possibility thinkers have added to the ways that you can tap into the energy of the universe for what you want or need. These are more than techniques – they’re proven methods that you can practice and refine as you choose.

The key is separating the right motivation from the wrong one.  The wrong motivation is to become something that you are not and think that people will be fooled.  That can be done with deceit and acting, but a motive so negative is in complete opposition to the Law of Attraction.

The right motivation for applying the Law of Attraction is to become the best person you can be by fully exercising your potential. There are some ways you can support the right motivation.

Personal Coaching is ideal for connecting with another positive thinker. Your coach can show you other techniques to use in practicing the Law of Attraction.  You may also need a personal coach to help you make the transition into new opportunities that opened up for you because you attracted them into your life.

    Great post Richard.

    What a lot of the law of attraction material forgets is a HUGE component- action. Yes, we must feel, see, and believe in our thoughts of what we want to see in our experience. This is fundamental in the law of attraction, but this is what energizes us to start manifesting. We must keep taking action, knowing that we will manifest what we want. It is not enough to think strongly… we must think so strongly that our body is physically compelled to start taking immediate and constant action- that in my opinion is how things are created from a thought.

    Look forward to more of your posts…. keep on sharing.

    I am very new to the Law and have to admit, I have not studied as much as I probably should however, I have seen a change in my personality…I seem to be much more positive…I seem to look at things more positively. I do think I am deserving. And…you are dead on about having to lose one thing to gain another. I am that person who needed peace in their life and had to lose their job to find it. Thanks for a great post!!!

    How can you believe in something that repeatedly fails? It’s impossible not to be cynical. The burden of proof is on you.

  5. Kelly says:

    David, The proof is also on you as well. The law of attraction is not just on the positive scale of things but as in a whole of what you “think” about you will “bring” about. Makes no difference whether what you are thinking about is of good thoughts or bad thoughts.

    Belief + Action= Manifestation? Is that how it works in a nutshell?

    What about people who seemingly get lucky? The waitress who dreaded her nowhere job, but was compassionate enough to sit and chat with a lonely guy who turned out to be a philanthropist and left her a multi-million dollar inheritance. Or how about the homeless guy who grew tired and weary of trying to get and hold down a job and decided just to resign to living the life of a vagrant, only to one day be told that his wealthy aunt that he never knew bequeathed her entire fortune to him? And one more that I know of personally, a lady who existed just at the poverty income guidelines and absolutely hated her life and the choices she made, always complaining about how unfair life was, suddenly was approached by a man in a parking lot who offered her a job as a personal assistant, just doing normal everyday tasks that she always does, like collecting the mail, grocery shopping, and running miscellaneous errands, for $1,000 a day for no other reason other than he was filthy rich and wanted someone to do his simple tasks?

    None of these people *believed* this turn of fortune would take place, nor did they apply themselves to achieve it, but they certainly got lucky. I guess this type of luck is not related to the LOA, but being that there is no real way to manifest such a situation of ease, LOA wouldn’t apply anyway.
