By now, everyone has at least heard about the law of attraction. Simplistically, the law says that you get, by and large, what you consider.
Since”the secret” got out, many have attempted to think about all the things they need through the application of various techniques – directed meditations, vision boards, positive thinking, positive feeling, and so on. Some swear it works, others wonder what they’re missing and how come they still have not got what their mind is focused on.
So what’s missing? Is considering something, wanting it and feeling positively about the result to really materialize the object of your desires? Of course not! Thinking about what you need by itself won’t get you anything. You need to ACT on your thoughts and desires.
You need a new car (or some other life style improvement)? You need a better job? Start treating with integrity and respect the one you have now! You want more money? Start paying off your debts ! You want the perfect husband? Become the perfect wife (don’t just lie there wasting time in wishful thinking). Yes, the universe responds in kind but ONLY when you show that you are ready to take personal responsibility. And the only way to show you are accountable is by taking IMMEDIATE action.
Remember the old tale about the individual who was always begging God to help him win the lottery? 1 day God got fed up and said”At least purchase a lottery ticket”.
God promised rain but rain never came. Obviously the tribe complained to which God replied”I could have sent you rain, as promised, but you did not dig any ditches”
So it’s all good to want and visualize something. But you are not prepared to get it until you start acting on it. How should you behave? Do everything and anything. Acting randomly will lead you onto the right track just as surely as acting intentionally and systematically. The point is you will need to be doing something, to begin somewhere, anywhere. Don’t just sit there staring mindlessly in your vision boards. Get real! Instead of constantly talking about your dreams, act on them. Start”digging the ditches” and you will get rain, if rain is exactly what you desire. If you do not dig the ditches, rain becomes impossible to obtain (regardless of how much you beg for it).
