Why the law of attraction doesn't work

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

Why the law of attraction never worked for you

Think about what you want not what you don't want. Visualize the things you really want and the universe will send them back, only if you did it right.

The law of attraction doesn't work for 99% of the people who try it. This is not my prediction but it's one of the core beliefs of people who strongly believe in the law of attraction. They say that 99% of the people are doing it wrong and this is why it's not working for them.

But the important question here is, what if the law of attraction doesn't really work and it just happens by coincidence that 1% of the people , who believe in it, succeed in life because they were doing other things right.

How many times have you worried about things that never happened?
Of course some of your worries happened but most of them didn't, right?

Had the law of attraction been correct then everything you worry about was actually going to become a reality.
We spend years of our lives worrying about things, sometimes almost every day, and most of them don't happen simply because thinking about something over and over can never make it happen.

Selective perception or a law that works

I am pretty sure you know of a person who believes that the law of attraction has worked for them but again what guarantees that this person saw his reality correctly?

In many of my previous articles i said that our perception of events is based on our beliefs. If you used the law of attraction then succeeded few years later, because of a different reason, then you might believe that the law of attraction was the reason for your success.

Success in life can't happen by day dreaming, positive thinking, visualization or the law of attraction. Yes all of those factors can help you get motivated, can improve your mood a bit but when it comes to real results it's all about actions and not thinking.

Try to think about having 1 million dollars every single day but without working for it and you will realize , maybe years later, that this approach never works.

You might want to tell me now that this is not the proper application of the law of attraction but just refer back to the promotional video that was released years ago for the secret book and you will realize that this is exactly what those people are promoting.

In that video a little kid wanted a bicycle and then he kept thinking about it until his parents bought it to him by chance. The video implied that without doing any kind of effort you can still attract what you want which is total nonsense.

What really works

I don't consider myself very successful but some people consider me successful given the fact that i am worth few million dollars. I started my journey from scratch and during that journey i had periods where i had no hopes whatsoever that i am going to make money.

In 2006 I lost hope in making money to the extent that i got severely depressed and this was the time where i learned what i learned about depression.

And even though i was 100% sure i will never make it i just kept trying in order not to feel ashamed of myself for quitting. And few years later i made the first million even though i had all kinds of negative thoughts that you could imagine. And by the way my goal was not making 1 million dollars for all i wanted was to make 1 million Egyptian pounds (200,000 dollars back then).

I ended up making much more than what i planned for ,few million dollars, while having a negative mindset.

I didn't believe i was going to make it but i was trying anyway because i didn't want to declare defeat and give up. Had the law of attraction had any effect i would have never managed to become a millionaire while going through one of the darkest periods ever in my life.

Do you know what really works?
It's your ability to keep taking actions everyday even if you think you won't make it.
It's your commitment to continuing the fight everyday even if you are not sure you are going to win.
It's your actions that define what you get in life and not really your thoughts.

Positive thoughts are great but they can't be of any help on their own without proper actions. Proper actions however can certainly work even if the thoughts were negative.

This is why the law of attraction is total nonsense.
I would call it the law of probabilities instead.

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
