As you scroll through Tiktok and Youtube, you might have come across self-help gurus and teenagers alike preaching about the Law of Attraction and how it changed their life. But what really is the Law of Attraction? It can be summarized in one sentence: “You create your reality with your thoughts.”
Let’s take an example of a student wanting good grades. The Law states that if she sees herself as a straight A’s student, she will begin to play the part (regardless of what grades she is currently getting) and eventually gets the grades she wants. The reverse also works. If she believes she can’t get As then she will block herself from those results. Sounds quite intuitive, you’d say? The Law of Attraction’s breakthrough point is in saying that this process works for everything in life - from becoming a billionaire to winning the lottery.
That just sounded a bit like voodoo magic, does it really work?
The ultimate judgment is yours to make, but there are many real-life examples of people who have used the Law of Attraction to achieve great things, including prominent figures such as Albert Einstein, Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, and many more. Here are some ways in which the Law of Attraction have helped them and can help you too:
1. Beliefs fuel thoughts which fuel actions.
When you believe a goal is achievable, you free your thoughts and creativity from limiting beliefs to concentrate on how you can achieve your goal. You’re more likely to come up with plans and take the necessary actions because you believe you will succeed.
2. A positive mindset creates positive feelings and attitudes
People following the law of attraction usually have practices such as repeating daily affirmations and recording what they’re grateful for. These practices contribute to a positive mindset that puts us in a good mood, so we are primed to go about our day performing at our best and being our kindest self to others. Positivity attracts more positivity in the form of relationships, achievements, happiness, and health, as proven by scientific studies.
Whether you’re a believer or not, you can benefit from the Law of Attraction’s valuable insights about the individual’s potential to create with their thoughts. Next time you catch yourself in the middle of a negative thought, switch it around to a positive one and notice the immediate change in how you feel. That is the power you hold within you, so yield it wisely, every minute of the day.
