For some it works and some it doesn't. It all comes down to what has more belief. Knowing one will or knowing one won't. The reason one doesn't get, even with the positive thought, is they don't have faith in the belief they will. And also there is the negative thought deep in the subconscience that rules. It's the one that has the belief behind it.
As the Law of Attraction states, "what one thinks one gets", is very true, but one has to have the faith and belief behind it. It takes time to have it become a reality. Most people don't persist to bring it about, so loose. Plus, Ronda Burns didn't explain fully what one has to do to get what they want.
The simplicity is this. Just have the concept, no more. Believe and have faith it will happen. With faith and belief it comes to one. One doesn't have to spell it out, picture it, or even write it out in detail. Just have the concept. You know what you want, believe it and so shell it be. The second truth is this. Act on that concept. By that I mean, act as if you have it. If it is a beingness, be the person you want, and act as if. If it is something you want, act as if you have it. Know it, believe it, have faith it is, and most of all act it.
There is a saying, "to have, one must Be first." "Be, do (act) and one will have. Plus, there must be faith and belief one is. So as one IS, one DOES (acts), one HAS. The universal creator, God, gives to those that ARE. It can't but do that, because what you ARE, you DO, then HAVE, and BECOME.
That is all the Law of Attraction is. The attraction is "what you think (be), by doing (act) you attract to you what your thoughts and concepts are.
All you have to have is the concept and act as if it is.
ohhh mannn haha i have heard about this and let me tell you my mom is crazy about this thing and it doesss notttt work! Basicly its saying if you think positive thoughts about what you want then the universe will for to you and give you it. For example "That BMW 2011 is mine!" thinking/saying that you already have it means that the universe will conform to you and eventualy "give" you the bmw. some people even creat "vision boards" where its a picture board of everything they want. The secret also involves visualizing/smelling/tasting what you want so it really is a reality. Oh and if you have a negavtive though towards it even "that BMW will be mine SOON" then it wont work or "i hope she doesnt wer the same dress as me" then it will happen, and the more negatively you think, the more negative will attract to you.
ifyou want my opinion this is all a bunch of bull that some person wrote about to make a lot of money for some scam, and well it worked. if you want to lets say, make the goverment better, then you would be thinking wow this gov is great, they pass great laws, they know exactly what they are doing and "supposedly" it will happen, but in reality there is no magic sky daddy that will confirm to the mind of just one person.
Alright, let's say I think the government is being overly controllive, does it still work then? I mean, the Government is pretty much the big thing, it has to do with everyone, and I mean everyone. So if the Fed passes laws that basically baby the people, is it my fault for thinking that? O_o
