Lately I came across the title, Why the Law of Attraction is wrong, but why it still works, which is published in Zen Habit blog. I find it very interesting and like to voice out my personal's two cent thoughts on this popular theory. The question whether it is working is very much dependent on the mindset of its beholder. Why I say so?
This is because I am a firm believer that every body is in control of his mind and free will. However, his mind is very much influenced by the value he attach to the event or things. Should his emotion takes over because he choose to allow it to happen. I rather prescribe it as implied consent which he consciously or unconsciously give in to his emotion except those spontaneous reaction which does not go through his mind.
As such, the law of attraction can work because the person believe in it and he guides his thoughts to stay focus on his preset goal. With his focus concentrating on that goal, ignoring all the distractions, but directing all the energy to the focus on the goal, which we are aware of the power of concentration.
A good analogy to this is to put a paper below the magnifying glass under the hot sun. You can see how powerful is the power that penetrates on one focal point, which eventually cause a fire on the paper if you hold it long enough.
Similarly, these energy drives him to a particular action which is consistent to his belief. Here, it works very well because positive thoughts will also breed more positive thoughts which eventually push his whole impulse to take that particular action, which ultimately deliver the results. Hence, it can even creates a breakthrough result. Now, you can see that these two forces work hand in hand to make it a reality.
As such, to put all the credit to the Law of Attraction may be too unrealistic and a bit inaccurate. However, I am more incline to phrase it as "so long as you can stay focus on your goal and constantly take the appropriate action in line with your goal, then the chances of achieving anything you put in your mind will materialise."
Here, the positive attitude plays a very significant role in boosting up his energy to work on it consistently and persistently. For him to take the appropriate action, he also need other elements such as skill, qualification and experience to deliver the results. Otherwise, he may have to learn, unlearn and relearn from the real practice.
Therefore, I rather conclude that it is more accurate to say that the above attributes deliver the results, and not LOA. However, it is also very difficult to prove that the LOA is wrong and to say it is wrong is also too harsh. Its truth can also be uphold to large extent.
I was initially so excited with it and hope that through sharing, you too may get excited as well. With the above discussion, it may give you some insight as how I look at it. In this connection, I am more than happy to hear from your perspective.
