When people start applying the law of attraction to their lives, one of the things they struggle with is waiting for those desires to manifest in their lives. They’ve clarified their goals. They can visualize them. They may even be taking steps to move towards those goals – yet they haven’t manifested the money or quality of life they wanted. Does the law of attraction really work? And if so, what are they doing wrong?
Personally, I don’t believe that the law of attraction is magical or supernatural. To me, it’s just another perspective on setting and achieving goals. So, if you aren’t getting the results in your life, don’t give up!
Seek Out Opportunities
Of course, that doesn’t mean with a snap of your fingers, a million dollars will fall into your lap. You can’t manifest money that way. But you can look for ways to provide more value and get paid for the value you provide.
Think about it – most people would rather complain about how unfairly they are being treated at work, how they got passed over for a promotion, how they deserve to make more money, than to actually do something about it. They’d rather wish things were different than take action.
It may very well be that you can’t make any more money at your job. Rather than trying to get blood from a stone, you can change your mindset. Stop complaining about your job, and take action to change your lifestyle, such as finding a better job, starting a part-time business, or gaining the skills that would net them a higher salary.
Understand Your Motivations and Desires
This is where so many people become stuck with the law of attraction. They want things to manifest exactly according to their wishes. But often, we have motivations that lie beneath those wishes – and those motivations inspire our true desires. Does it really matter how we get more money if the end result is thousands of dollars more? (Within reason, of course – I’m not advocating illegal activity here!)
It’s not that there is a “right” formula to manifest your desires. Rather, it’s about taking action steps towards your goals, overcoming obstacles, and being persistent. The secret to knowing if you are on the right path or not is to analyze your emotions – manifesting should feel joyous rather than frustrating. It should feel like this is the next step in your life. And you should feel passionate and energized when you think of your new lifestyle and the abundance you will bring.
If where you are currently seems like a chore or a shot in the dark, perhaps you aren’t yet on the right path. Explore your desires further and really become clear about what you want and why you want it. When you understand the “why,” that will motivate you to take action.
