The Law Of Attraction Defined

Wikipedia says, "The phrase Law of Attraction, although used widely by new thought writers, has a variety of definitions. Turn-of-the-century references conceptualized the law of attraction as relating to physical structure and to how matter develops. A more modern consensus among new thought thinkers is that the Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too."

It's only fair to share the other side as well. Wikipedia goes on to say, "Since many of the claims of the law of attraction appear impossible without violating established scientific principles and our understanding of the universe, it has received criticism from the scientific community. Physicist Ali Alousi, for instance, criticized it as unmeasurable (and therefore unscientific) as well as questioning the likelihood that thoughts can affect anything outside the head. The Associated Press is also quoted as saying that "some medical professionals suggest it could even lead to a blame-the-victim mentality and actually be dangerous to those suffering from serious illness or mental disorders."

This is a very basic definition and those of us who believe the law of attraction is alive and well, know there is so much more to it. Intentional Winning, (LOA plays a mjor part in IW) starts first with taking responsibility for your condition, for better and for worse. You got you where you are, and I believe you can get yourself wherever you want to be!

You know, it's not airy-fairy, think it to be it, it's so much more. It's about first knowing what you want, finding a first step in that direction, taking that step, taking that step, taking that step! Yes, I know I wrote that three times, just as you will take that step three times, four times, ten times, a million times. Taking a step is taking action. When you take action, you move mountains. Resources become visible, people who are living where you want to be, will suddenly be in your life, the question then becomes, are you seeing what's now visible? Are you speaking with these "new" people, or smiling with a nod and moving on? When you determine what you want and start to become aware of how much opportunity is all around you, and then take the steps, you'll see that the law of attraction is alive, well and available to you!

We have started this journey, I'm so glad you're here!

I think the number one kicker in people's lives are the people around them.

My son was trying out for a provincial football team. He had two of his friends at the house with him, who were also trying out.

I know they were trying to save their egos from the sadness of not making the team by what they were saying.

No way we'll make this team and you won't either Michael( my is my son).

I heard Michael start to say negative things about himself and his friends were agreeing with him! I called him over for a private chat.

He had already recieved numerous awards at a national level, so it was strange to hear him speak this way.

I asked him why he thought he couldn't make it. He didn't know. In fact, after 5 minutes of talking about why he didn't know how things became negetive, he turned it around and started focusing again on the positive.

He decided it was time for his friends to go home so he could focus more on the good, before morning tryouts.

He made the team, but his friends didn't. Michael then saw that his friends decided the night before that they weren't going to make it.

heyyyyy...the secret word code is says sing! I tell ya, as soon as I move and get settled in, I'm gonna take lessons and break some eardrums! hahahaha

Tania, that's a great story, and good for you for pulling your son out of the negativity. Maybe next time, give all the boys the pep-talk! Congrats to your son.

I see Mason gets it, he tells the other kids at pre-school, "Okay everybody, come over, gather here, I'm going to tell you the Monday Motivator!"
One kid asks, "What's a Monday Motivator?"
Mason looks at Teacher Cris (a personal friend of mine) and asks, "What's a Monday Motivator?" She tells him, "Its a newsletter your mom writes every Monday. It makes people happy."
"Oh, good. So everyone, I have happy news, it's called a Monday Motivator!" He went on.

I about died laughing when I heard this story, but I was also very proud! They do what we do. Aren't you glad we're doing?!

hahaha...Mason! That's great!

I would have pep talked the other boys Kathy, but I know them well, and it hasn't worked in the past.

They have parents who like to blame downfalls on others, which tends to rub off without many realizing this.

Sometimes people need to know when to walk away and not let the negative ones suck the positive energy from them.

Yes, it does make me proud.

My second son has no interest in sports or public glory, and wants to be a massage therapist. He's quieter than the others and likes his reading and video games.

I know he'll be the best massage therapist that he can be and that's all that matters.

Shayla wants to sing and be famous...well... help!

I'll set her up in lessons when we move and see how it goes. Then we'll take it from there. If she wants to sing, then by jobe, she will sing! LOL

Connor is Connor...and perfectly happy being so.

Self esteem is the best gift any parent can give their child. It doesn't mean they'll always want to be a front runner, but they'll have the get up and go for when they see something that they truly want.
