Do you recall the initial ray of hope you felt when you watched The Secret for the first time? I undoubtedly remember the desire that overflowed my heart, understanding that – Yes, I can make my dreams come true – FINALLY!
However, how many of you quickly saw that expectation diminish into frustration? And how many of you (please be truthful now) began muttering things like:
- “I think the universe is against me.”
- “I’m annoyed that sometimes I am able to make it work, but most times I can’t. What’s the trick?”
- “It would seem to work for others, but I just can’t put it together.”
- “Why am I having so much difficulty?”
- “I’m trying EXTREMELY hard but still nothing is happening!”
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Roughly, 97% of individuals also couldn’t make the Law of Attraction work for them the first time around. Think about it, just like anything else, you have to practice several times before you see success. A youngster doesn’t learn to walk without falling over a few times, right?
But in practice, everything is easier said and done. If you’re frustrated, it’s hard to stay optimistic. And it’s especially harder to remain hopeful when the evidence all around you screams negativity like the unstable economy or senseless acts of violence such as those recently seen in the news.
And do you know what happens when you do not stay positive? That’s right – you start attracting negative and unconstructive things into your life.
So how can you make the Law of Attraction work for you – without becoming frustrated? How do those who have successfully realized the Law of Attraction do it with such confidence and finesse?
Well, here’s 3 quick suggestions so you will never feel frustrated or tired of begging from the universe, since you know how to start manifesting like a pro.
1. Allow Yourself To Receive
Like a lost youngster who approaches a law enforcement officer and asks, “Excuse me Sir, can you tell me how to go to the post office? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you?” Well, if the child goes on and on asking, the police officer can’t even give an answer, right?
Well, it’s identical with your mind. If the only thing your mind is doing is transmit, transmit, transmit, the universe – which is trying to respond – can’t present you a single thing since you’re not enabling yourself to receive!
So, have the self-confidence in yourself and stop exhausting yourself by running around person-to-person begging for riches, and then wondering why nobody is dropping a dime in your cup (Hint: It’s because you’re running away too fast before they can even reach for their wallets).
Think of your wishes and leave it out there, go away, and belief that your cup will be filled with gold coins (or whatever it is you asked for) when the time is right.
2.Be Patient with Yourself
Receiving takes time.
Sadly, many people give up just a couple of steps before the finish line because they’ve determined that if it’s not working by now, it’s never going to work whatsoever. Worse still are individuals who throw in even more and more energy because they believe that with more resources, the results will come faster.
This is like expecting nine mothers to conceive and deliver a baby in a month. You, furthermore, can’t bake cookies in half the time by doubling the temperature. You will burn those cookies to ashes!
In simple terms: Everything in this world has a natural development time, and this fact will not change regardless of what resources you toss at it.
So loosen up and be patient. Take into account that you too, as part of the universe, are also ruled by the laws of the universe, and you are not able to alter the natural development time.
If you think of this, you will be less likely work yourself into frustration, or worse, push yourself into a downward spiral of negativity.
3. Educate and Support Yourself
Like the kid who is learning how to walk, you must have support. In addition you require guidance on how to take action, and also the role models to look up to.
A lot of people give up because they think that “The Secret” is the “be all and end all” solution. Well, it’s NOT. “The Secret” is just a tiny portion. It was certainly not intended, and has never been, the entire solution.
Arriving at the conclusion that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work when all you ever did to educate yourself was watched “The Secret” 19 times (without considering changing the behavior of other areas of your life) is comparable to concluding that exercising is not an effective approach to burn fat because all you did is run on the treadmill for 2 hours a day (but you’re still stuffing yourself with fried foods and cheesecakes).
So seek and be hungry for new knowledge. Also, try to be among people or communities where you can support each other, learn from each other and share new knowledge that you have found.
While the Law of Attraction is not an overnight delivery service, it will indeed deliver, if you do your part too!
