How Does The Law Of Attraction Work?

What you’re about to learn today is going to change your future forever. It’s not that the law of attraction is a magic pill that you can take to make things change automatically. But it’s a mindset that can help you to get to your goals faster.

But what is the law of attraction exactly?

The law of attraction isn’t what you think it is. Yes, you can use it to attract what you want, but it doesn’t quite work that way. The secret lies in a small change in perspective.

Please do remember, the law of attraction is not a quick fix. Quick fixes don’t exist. However, use the tools provided in this article and you’ll start to move towards what you want in life.

What Is The Law Of Attraction?

The law of attraction means that you can attract whatever you want in life if you focus on that what it is that you want. According to the Urban Dictionary, the definition of the law of attraction is as following;

The belief that positive thoughts are magnets for positive life experiences and negative thoughts are magnets for negative life experiences.”

What does this mean? It means that if you focus on something long enough with intention, you’re able to manifest it into reality.

It also means that you attract who and what you are, not who and what you want. This is KEY to understand, so I’m going to repeat it:

You don’t attract who and what you want, you attract who and what you are!

So, to get what you want in life, you’ve to figure out what person you’ve to become to get it. Focusing on the person you want to become is the key principle.

Understand this is the beginning of using the law of attraction.

So many of us focus on the wrong things in life. Instead of focusing on our transformation, we focus on instant satisfaction. If we don’t get what we want immediately, we often try to find something new to reinforce our dopamine addiction.  

Guided By Fear

It’s also far more likely that you’re going to get distracted because of fear.

Do you think about how other people are going to perceive you when you’ve to give a presentation? What would happen if you focus on providing value to the people rather than how they would perceive you?

Let’s take this to a personal example of mine. When I started this blog I was super excited. But once I had made the website known to the public, thoughts of fear entered my mind.

What if no one wants to read this stuff? What if I’m not qualified to write about this?

It’s your mind telling you to stop doing what you’re doing because your mind tries to protect you from uncertain outcomes.

This means that your mind isn’t supporting your decisions. Especially not when it means that you’re putting yourself outside of your comfort zone, into the danger zone.

This is a natural reaction of the mind. Fear is an emotion and there’s no human being alive that doesn’t have to deal with it.

Learn to pursue through fear and you’ll reach your goals.

The law of attraction means that you focus on the results that you’re after, instead of focusing on your fears.

Does The Law Of Attraction Really Work?

Many people believe that the law of attraction is real. But is it true? How can you confirm this?

First of all, who have used the law of attraction? Famous names are Jim Carrey, Conor McGregor, Oprah Winfrey, and Will Smith. They have used the law of attraction to rise to the top in their field. Let’s see what some other famous people have to say about the law of attraction:

Life Will Pay Whatever Price You Ask.
-Tony Robbins

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.
– Albert Einstein

Many people have used the law of attraction to attract what they want. There’s one thing they all have in common. They focus on the person they’ve to become, to reap the rewards of what they’re after.

Whether you like to call it the law of attraction or not, what you consistently focus on becomes your reality. If you focus on the negative stuff in life, you’ll attract more of that. Focus on becoming a great asset to the world and what you can achieve is limitless.

Your focus determines your destiny. If you’re still skeptical, try this short experiment for yourself.

Do This Quick Exercise

Look at all the blue things around you for about 20 seconds. The goal is to memorize as many blue items as you can. Do it now.

How many blue things can you recall?

Quite a bunch of them, can’t you? Now tell me how many yellow things you memorize?

That’s much harder now, isn’t it? Now do this again but memorize as many yellow items as you can in the next 20 seconds.

How many red items did you notice? Don’t worry if you didn’t notice any. This exercise shows you the power of focus and intention.

You Can Attract Whatever You Believe And Think About Consistently

If you believe that your current income is the amount you should be earning, you’re right.

But if you believe that you’re worthy of more, you’re also right.

Think about what it is that you want consistently and it becomes your reality. Of course, only if you combine this with action. The combination of action with the law of attraction is deadly.

It’s simple; if you don’t believe you can do something, you won’t be able to do it. You’ll only get in life what you believe in and the law of attraction can help you to believe.

Let’s dive into the juicy stuff.

Before Using The Law Of Attraction

It’s a start to learn that the law of attraction exists and how it works but how can you turn this to your advantage? How to attract anything you want in life?

Start From The Inside

If you want to use the law of attraction to get something outside of yourself, you must change something inside yourself. This could be a belief that you’ve created or it could be the way you talk to yourself.

Decide What You Want To Attract

Decide what it is that you want to attract into your life. If you’re trying to attract many things, it may be too much. You must make a decision on what’s the most important thing for you to attract at this moment.

It’s important that you go into the exercises with full intention. Without intention, you’re likely to fail and reach the feeling of being stuck.

Decide what your main priority is. This helps you to focus.

Keep An Open Mind

Keeping an open mind is super important. You need to focus a tremendous amount of energy on the person you’ve to become, to get what you want.

It’s definitely not going to happen if you’re being skeptical.

Besides, what do you lose if you try it out?

How To Use The Law Of Attraction

Before you can attract anything you want, you must believe that it’s possible. If you don’t believe it’s possible you’re not going to achieve it.

There are a couple of ways to do this but I’ll only discuss visualization and affirmations.


Visualization is a great technique that you can use to manifest the law of attraction. Visualizing is easy to do and doesn’t require much of your time.

Visualize every day for 5 minutes when you wake up and 5 minutes before going to bed.

Visualization is similar to meditation but with a different goal. Set an alarm for 5 minutes or longer. Lay down in a quiet place and close your eyes.

Focus on your breath. Feel a relaxation throughout your body. Follow your breath for about a minute. Then think about what you want to achieve. Now, imagine yourself as having already achieved this.  

  • What would you be doing?
  • What would you be thinking?
  • How would you feel?
  • What do you look like?
  • And What does your environment look like? 
  • What do you smell?
  • Are there any sounds you can hear?

The key to manifesting the law of attraction is to focus on these questions with intention and focus.

Who do you need to become to get what you want? Use visualization to focus on this new persona you’ve created.

Tap into this feeling and you’ll notice that you become more confident with this new image. Shortly after you’ll see that your world is changing.

Let’s make sure there are no misunderstandings. It’s not going to be an overnight change. You’ve to practice this over and over until it becomes a habit.

But it’s the small habits in life that divide the successful people from the majority.

You can also choose to start like the one down below, to get the idea.

Once You Believe It, You’ll See It

Visualization helps you to get into the zone where you start to feel like you’ve already achieved it. The feeling is important because this can help you to reach what you desire.

When you’ve achieved something, you’re full of confidence. This type of confidence is real, right?

But what if you can fake this confidence? What if you can already feel it before you achieve it?

The brain can’t tell the difference between a real and a fake feeling.

Use this to your advantage. Make what you want real in your mind and you’ll be able to create it in the real world. Besides, every genius invention started off as an unrealistic idea.

You’ll See It When You Believe It
– Wayne Dyer

Visualization Board

Using a visualization board is another technique that many people use. It’s a board where you hang up pictures of things that motivate you in life. This can be anything from a nice car, houses, a beach, a mountain, love, or nature. The options are only limited by your imagination.

Hang your visualization board somewhere where you’ll see it on a daily basis. The best place is the bedroom. You see it when you wake up and before you go to bed.

The best way to create a vision board, according to this article in the Huffington Post, is by focusing on how you want to feel. This means that a vision board should stir up some emotions. When you feel strong emotions your vision board becomes more effective. This increases your chance of success.

You might want to create multiple vision boards for multiple locations. The more you see it, the more you start to believe it.

And when you can believe it… you can achieve it.

Affirmations is another great tool in your arsenal. This tool helps you to change your belief by telling yourself something specific over and over again.

This line must be in alignment with who you want to become.

First, you’ve to pick your affirmation. Make sure this relates to what you want to achieve. It has to be a line that empowers you.

Every morning after waking up, stand in front of the mirror and chant out your affirmations. A good starting point is to do this 10 times. Make sure you don’t wake up anyone else in the house though.

You can also do it in your car, in the lift at work, or while you’re going for a walk. It doesn’t matter where or when you do it.

What matters is how you use your body. It’s not going to have a great impact when you stand in front of the mirror like a zombie.

Instead, activate some empowering emotions. Feel as being the person that you want to become.

You only live once, make it count!

The more often you do this, the more you start to believe it. The more you start to believe it the more confident you become that it’s possible.

You can also use affirmations for all your goals. Keep affirming your goals until it becomes so clear in your mind. The benefit is that this focuses your mind and keeps you thinking about it all the time.

Feel like you’re already living like this.

Practical Use – The Law Of Attraction To Attract Wealth

Having wealth is going to make your life easier. It doesn’t come as a surprise that many people want to attract extra wealth to their life.

First, you need to get clear what your thoughts are about money.

Do you believe that money is the source of all evil?

In that case, change your perspective about money first. If you feel like money is a bad thing to have, you will never be able to attract it.

Think about what you could do if you had more money. You could give more to the less fortunate or provide more things for your family.

Make sure that wealth is something you look towards with a positive attitude.

Remember that there is a huge amount of wealth in the world. You can have a little piece of this if you set open yourself up to receive it.

Look at all the things that you’ve already got in your life and be grateful. Wealth is in abundance.

Now, think about what you need the money for. What do you want and how much does it cost? See yourself as already being in the possession of what you want.

What person do you have to become to get this amount of wealth?

Focus on the things that characterize that person. What would you be doing? How would you be living your life?

Again, feel it with emotion and do this daily until you succeed. Use the visualization tool to manifest this into reality.

Create Your Environment

The law of attraction works because you focus on the change that you must go through to get what you want. This means that you’ve to be aware of the environment that you put yourself into consistently.

Let’s say that you want to attract a woman that doesn’t drink. Chances are very slim that you’re going to find this woman in a bar.

If your friends hang out every weekend while you want to become an entrepreneur, it’s a good idea to spend less time with your friends and start socializing with other entrepreneurs.

Surround yourself with people that are in alignment with what you want to become. Be aware of your most dominant thoughts and remember that you have the power to change anything.
