By now, everyone has heard about the law of attraction. Simplistically, the law says that you get, by and large, what you think about.
Since”the key” got out, many have attempted to think about all the things they need via the application of various techniques – directed meditations, vision boards, positive thinking, positive feeling, etc. Some swear it works, others wonder what they’re missing and how come they still haven’t got what their mind is focused on.
So what’s missing? Is thinking about something, wanting it and feeling positively about the result to actually materialize the object of your needs? Thinking about what you need by itself won’t get you anything. You need to ACT on your ideas and desires.
You need a new car (or some other life style improvement)? You want a better job? Start treating with respect and integrity the one you have now! You want more money? Start paying off your debts diligently! Become the perfect wife (don’t just lie there wasting time in wishful thinking). Yes, the world responds in kind but ONLY when you show that you’re ready to take personal responsibility. And the only way to show you are responsible is by taking IMMEDIATE action.
Remember the old story about the person who was always begging God to help him win the lottery? One day God got fed up and said”At least purchase a lottery ticket”.
God promised rain but rain never came. Obviously the tribe complained to which God replied”I could have sent you rain, as promised, but you did not dig any ditches”
So it’s all good to want and visualize something. But you are not ready to receive it until you start acting on it. How should you behave? Do everything and anything. Acting intentionally will direct you on the right track just as surely as acting methodically and deliberately. The point is you need to be doing something, to begin somewhere, anywhere. Don’t just sit there staring mindlessly at your vision boards. Get real! Rather than constantly talking about your fantasies, act on them. Start”digging the ditches” and you will receive rain, if rain is exactly what you want. If you don’t dig the ditches, rain becomes impossible to get (regardless of how much you pray for it).
