I am often approached by people who tell me that the Law of Attraction is not working for them. I always ask, “Can you tell me the reason why it isn’t working for you?”
The answer is always the same: “Well, I concentrate on what I want, I visualize and recite affirmations, but nothing happens for me.”
“After you do all of that, what actions are you taking to make this happen?” I say.
“What do you mean?” is the frequent reply.
When it comes to the Law of Attraction, you have to have a plan of action. Before you build a building, you have to have a blueprint. After you have the blueprint, you have to work diligently in order to complete the project. You need to put in the hours to get the foundation done, and build the building from the ground up. The same thing applies to your goals and dreams. You concentrate and visualize, you recite your affirmations — but do you follow through by taking any action?
Let’s say you want to lose some extra pounds. Do you honestly believe that exercise is not necessary? Of course not. You know you need an exercise plan or regimen that you can follow to achieve your best results. You know that just by merely visualizing and affirming you won’t get the results that you’re looking for. You need to exercise, and watch what you eat.
The same is true with anything else you’re trying to achieve. You have to be plugged in mentally, in order to get the ball rolling. You have to set your intention with powerful emotions to keep that ball on course.
It’s true that you need to visualize and affirm that whatever you want is already yours. But if you never make a physical effort, if you don’t follow your intuitions, you will never capitalize on the opportunities the Law of Attraction will bring into your life. You are the one that has to make things happen.
You need to put forth the effort to bring the things into your life that you have already visualized. If you visualize yourself losing weight, you have to exercise. If you visualize yourself getting a better job, you have to apply for a job. If you visualize yourself winning a race, you have to train and practice.
Fulfilling your desires ultimately comes down to the effort you put into it.
