The Law of Attraction and Other Lies to Separate You from Your Money

The Law of Attraction goes something like this.  Your thoughts are pure energy.  Like energy (positive or negative) attracts like energy.  Therefore, if you have positive thoughts, you will attract positive outcomes.  Trust in the universe and it will give you want you want.

Co-author of The Secret, Lisa Nichols, gave an example of the Law of Attraction this way, “Every time you look inside your mail expecting to see a bill, guess what?  It’ll be there.  Each day you go out dreading the bill, you’re never expecting anything great, you’re thinking about debt, you’re expecting debt.  So debt must show up….it showed up, because the law of attraction is always being obedient to your thoughts.”

Easy.  Right?  Well, not so fast.  The bills didn’t show up because you went and bought things you couldn’t afford.  They showed up because you expected them to show up and the universe read your mind.  What do you have to do to get those bills to stop showing up?  Stop buying things you can’t afford?  No!!!!!  That would be silly.  Lisa has a solution.  She said, “Feeling happy and grateful for the money you already have, is the fastest way to bring more money into your life.”  Wow.  You don’t have to work for it.  Just be happy and grateful.  Buying her book wouldn’t hurt either.  Would it?

This advice fits the pill popping, quick fix, no responsibility segment of our society nicely.  It takes the responsibility away from the person.  The fix is as simple as thinking really hard about what you want.  Maybe writing what you want down 15 times a day or (this was advice actually given – no kidding) imagining a field of clovers.  No lie.  Image a field of clovers for 20 minutes a day and money will come your way.  Not only is this advice crafted to take your money but it also does a lot of damage.  While people are daydreaming about clovers, they aren’t taking action to fix their lives and pursue their dreams.

Do you want to know the real secret?  The secret of life and success?  Here is the secret.  On average, you will enjoy the level of success you deserve.  Let me say that again because most people will reject it.  I’m hoping you are one of the few who are ready to embrace the truth and take ownership of your life.  I’m hoping that you will take the responsibility for your life and your own success.  If you are still reading this, I’m betting that you are one of the few.  So again, on average, you will enjoy the level of success you deserve.  Yes.  Stuff happens.  Stuff beyond your control and you didn’t deserve.  A meteor shot through a woman’s roof and hit her in the leg.  Yup.  That qualifies as STUFF that HAPPENS.  How you respond to STUFF is what makes a difference in your life.  If you wallow and ask the horrible questions, “why me,” “why does this always happen to me,” “Why can’t I ever win,” you are going to get terrible results.  If you ask yourself the empowering questions, “What did I learn from this,” “How does this make me stronger,” “What can I do to get the best result from this situation,” you will progress toward success.

Focus on small, incremental and consistent changes in your actions and you will gain great levels of success in your life.  Don’t fall for solutions that take the responsibility away from you.  Don’t fall for solutions that claim unrealistic gains.  Don’t fall for solutions that require “massive action” because they will led to massive disappointment.

Success is possible.  We can help you.  Our solution will require you to take responsibility for your outcomes and together will create a platform for your success.
