I Finally Understand The Law of Attraction.
The first time I heard about the Law of Attraction I was shocked. It came to me from a movie called "The Secret", which was shown at my Physical Education class. As I had social problems, I was so ready to apply this law, but it wasn’t easy, here’s my story and the way that I finally understand the Law of Attraction.
At the time I had low self-esteem and I was deeply depressed, I was being bullied and distrusted authority, in desperation I kept watching the movie "The Secret" over and over and over. But without knowing how to apply the Law of Attraction correctly, I failed.
So I decided to research the Law of Attraction and read "The Law of Attraction" by Abraham-Hicks and "The Science of Success" by Wallace D. Wattles. However even after reading both of these books, I still felt discouraged and realised that I was still in the process learning.
I began to feel quite frustrated, and almost gave up trying.
I wondered when am I ever going to master this law and have the results that I am looking for?
The turning point came in June, I had spoken to one of my teachers about my trouble trying to apply the Law of Attraction, my teacher explained, “that I shouldn’t compare myself to others”, and that, “I have to always have goals, you can't just wish for success.”
After that conversation thing started to change, I felt a little bit more open to these ideas and more confident, at least I had told my story to someone and they understood me.
I also tried sharing the Law of Attraction with my Mom but like so many, she thinks that we can't get things easy, that we have to beat others, before they take what we want.
I think she thought I was going crazy.
I decided to study "The Science of Success" by Wallace Wattles again and finally, I understood it!
My problem was that I needed to follow my own dreams instead of others. I had become a slave to society and I decided to stop it, to end it now.
I started writing notes to myself on how to fix my problems.
I stopped feeling responsible for how other people feel.
I realized that it was not my job to make people happy, if they don't want to be happy.
And I learnt that I should follow my dreams, and do what I wanted to do.
No longer could anyone stop me from doing what I wanted, no one could breathe through me, they no longer had any power over my life.
I also learned, that you have to be specific in what you want, it is an exact equation. As Wallace Wattles says, “you can't multiply two by two and fail to get four.”
You also have to respect the choices of someone else, you can't manage someone else's life, only your own.
I’m happy for all the trouble I’ve been through, because now I manage my life completely. I have control over everything and I realize that, thanks to the Law of Attraction, I have a great advantage now.
I finally understand the Law of Attraction!!
I would love to share with you some quotes that, I think, really capture the essence of the Law of Attraction.
“Have no thought of trying to rule over others or of outdoing them.”
“The struggle for power is the battle of the competitive world, and you must rise above that world and its motives and aspirations and seek only for the fulfilment of life” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Cast out envy; you can have all that you want, and you need not envy any man what he has. See to it that you do not hold malice or enmity toward anyone; to do so cuts you off from the mind whose treasures you seek to make your own.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“When you make a failure it is because you have not asked for enough. Keep on, and a larger thing than you were seeking will certainly come to you.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Don't help people unless they want you to help them.”
“Never do something you don't want to do.”
“Do not try to do great things until you are ready to go about them in a great way. Do no be in a hurry to get to great things. Doing great things will not make you great, but becoming great will certainly lead you to the doing of great things. Begin to be great where you are and in the things you do everyday, every minute, every hour and every second.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.”
“Take the first step in faith you don't have to see the whole staircase.”
“He/She who motivates you conquers you.”
“He/She who cannot obey himself/herself will be commanded.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can do that.”
“The object of all life is development and everything that lives has an inalienable right to all the development it is capable of attaining.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Have absolute faith in your perceptions of truth. Never act in haste or hurry, be deliberate in everything, wait until you feel you know the true way. And when you know the true way, be guided by your own faith.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Greatness is reward enough for itself; the joy of being something and of knowing that you are advancing is the greatest of all joys possible to man.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Haste in every business brings failure.”
“There is no lack of opportunity.”
“Remember that your thought must be held upon the creative plane; you are never for an instant to be betrayed into regarding the supply as limited, or into acting on the moral level of completion.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Do not spend any time in planning as to how you will meet possible emergencies in the future, except as the necessary policies may affect your actions today. You are concerned doing today's work in a perfectly sufficient manner, and not with emergencies which may arise tomorrow: you can attend to them as they come.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Do not concern yourself with questions as to how you shall surmount obstacles which may loom upon your business horizon, unless you can see plainly that your coarse must be altered today in order to avoid them.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“No matter how tremendous an obstruction may appear at a distance, you will find that if you go in a Certain Way it will disappear as you approach it, or that a way over, though, or around it will appear.”
“No possible combination of circumstances can defeat a man or woman who is proceeding to reach their goals strictly along scientific lines. Give no anxious thought to possible disasters, obstacles, panics or unfavourable combinations of circumstances: there is time enough to meet such things when they present themselves before you in the immediate present, and you will find that every difficulty carries with it the wherewithal for its overcoming.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Guard your speech. Never speak of yourself, your affairs, or of anything else in a discouraging way.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Never admit the possibility of failure, or speak in a way that infers failure as a possibility.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Go in a Certain Way, and if you do not receive that thing, you will receive something so much better that you will see that the seeming failure was really a great success.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“You will not fail because you lack the necessary talent to do what you wish to do. If you go on as I have directed. You will develop all the talent that is necessary to the doing of your work.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“Do not hesitate or waver for fear that when you come to any certain place you will fail for lack of ability; keep right on, and when you come to that place you will fail for lack of ability will be furnished to you. Go in full faith.” - Wallace D. Wattles (The Science of Success)
“If you don't believe it don't expect it.”
Note: These quotes aren't mine but belong mostly to Wallace D. Wattles and other metaphysical authors.
I am not trying to tell anyone what they should or shouldn’t believe. I just want to share how I was able to understand the Law of Attraction and what has helped me succeed today.
Thank You for reading my story.
