If you’re just discovering the Law of Attraction, here are a few books to give you a basic understanding and get you started along the path of attracting greatness.
The Secret is a good book to introduce the subject. Take away the Hollywood glitter and glam, and this book creates a convincing argument that you are not helpless in this life. The power, the ability to change your life is within your grasp. However, with its superficial overview and flavor of the month popularity, I have known people that only use one tool to tap into the Law of Attraction and find themselves disappointed when it doesn’t instantly change their lives. Read this with the knowledge that it’s just the tip of the iceberg, then delve into something deeper.
What I like about this book is that it goes more into depth about the why involved with LOA. If I do this, why do I get this result? What do I need to do? Just thinking positively doesn’t make good things materialize. Why does not being in tune with the right thoughts attract the wrong results? Schwartz answers these questions in simple terms.
This book’s whole objective is an exercise in the Law of Attraction, and Napoleon Hill does an excellent job of setting intention from the very beginning. I also recommend any video you can track down by this author because his passion shines through and inspires. He vibrates on a positive frequency. In this book he brings real examples of wealthy, successful people and the common principles they held as universal truths. Not only does this book show you how great men found great success, but how you can do it too.
I love that this book weaves profound lessons through a great story. It’s about a guy who was miserable in his corporate job and had screwed things up with his family and kids. This guy meets an old man who, through a series of events, invites him to his home. The house turns out to be an amazing mansion and a symbol for great success. The elderly owner of the house tells the distraught younger man his rags to riches story and they end up becoming friends. The twelve pillars (also part of the house’s architecture) end up being the old man’s guiding principles and the knowledge he imparts the younger guy. Plus, there’s a great twist at the end.
Similar to The Twelve Pillars, this is a story about finding success. A guy working in direct marketing finds a mentor who shows him the path to success. It just so happens that all of the lessons the mentor imparts are principles of the Law of Attraction. It does a great job of illustrating the real life applications of the Law. It’s an easy read.
