The Secret To The Law Of Attraction
I was scrolling through twitter this morning and I saw someone mention how *amazing* “the law of attraction is”…
If you aren’t aware of these books/concepts, they’re based upon the principle that thinking positively and imagining the future you want will magically make that future become real.
If you sit around doing nothing but imagining a great future – I’m sorry to break it to you but that’s not going to bring you closer to your dreams…
But i’ll give credit where it’s due. There are SOME benefits to these concepts.
I’ll touch on that in a bit…
The thing is:
I hate when people claim that “the secret” or “the law of attraction” is responsible for their success…
It’s not because I don’t believe that these people believe what they’re saying – it’s because it’s a really damaging narrative.
There are millions of people who hear this stuff and begin to believe that positive thinking is the only barrier between them and their goals…
Millions of people who are going to end up sorely disappointed.
But I get why this stuff CAN help:
BELIEVING that achieving your dreams is possible is a huge mental hurdle most people don’t get past…
Positive thinking and affirmations can definitely help people overcome that hurdle.
But THINKING only creates results when you also take ACTION.
My worry is these concepts train people to be passive.
People think that the world is going to work towards helping them if they think positively – that’s no bueno.
So what does this mean for you?
Please don’t buy the secret.
