Does Law of Attraction Work?

You probably heard about the Law of attraction
before. It was made popular by a book and movie called
“The Secret”. Basically to sum it up, Law of attraction
says that anyone can attract whatever they want, just by thinking about it consistently. So if you think about what you want and you
really focus on it, you will manifest it in your life. On the other hand, if you think about the
things you don’t want, you will attract more of those things. If you think about making money a lot, money
will appear in your life. If you think about having a relationship,
you will end up in one. Likewise, if you think about why you don’t
deserve to be rich or in a relationship, you will become poor and alone. That’s all pretty silly. We can’t just make
money appear out of nowhere, by just thinking about it. But our thoughts can and do affect our lives. And this is because of a concept I like to
call: Mental Proximity. Take a look at this apple. Now I would like you to imagine yourself wearing
a funny hat, where that apple just hangs in front of your head. From now on, you will see the apple 24/7. How do you think this will influence you? Well, first, it’s going to change how you
make your decisions. If you get hungry and you want to get something
to eat, what do you think of first? You obviously think of the apple, because
you’re always reminded of it. Or you might think of something similar to
it, like another piece of fruit or something that’s red. The second way it’s going to influence you,
is by changing your perception of the world around you. Everything that’s red is now more visible
to you. You notice round, apple sized objects more
often. Maybe you’re more aware of the knives to cut
the apples with. Or perhaps you spot recipes to make smoothies
or apple pies. Essentially you’re going to start noticing
things that relate to apples a lot more. All this happens, because that apple is in
your mental proximity. What I mean by that, is you’re constantly
reminded of it and you never stop thinking about it. Basically you see the world through a filter,
which connects everything to that apple. I’m sure this has occurred to you before. You bought an item and seemingly out of nowhere
everyone around you had it as well. This happened to me when I bought my first
motorcycle. Suddenly everyone was driving one. But in reality the motorcycles had always
been there. It’s just that after I bought mine, I started
noticing them more often. I was driving around in one all the time after
all, which is basically like having a hat with a motorcycle hanging there, 24/7. Now, how about we take on a more interesting
topic. Money. Let’s say you start thinking about money more
often. Not how you would spend it, but how you could
make and save more of it. By thinking about money and having it in your
mental proximity, your decisions change. You might become more conscious about your
spending habits and you try to stop impulsive splurging on things you don’t need. Maybe you start planning on getting a raise
at your current job. Perhaps you start looking for a better paying
one, or maybe you even start your very own business. The perception of the world around you also
changes. You probably start noticing opportunities
to make more money, that you didn’t necessarily see previously. When you walk by a piece of real estate, you
might start calculating if you could maybe make money off the property. You see it as a potential investment opportunity,
rather than just someone’s living space. Essentially you just start noticing options
that were previously already there, you just didn’t think about them. Did you magically manifest these opportunities
with your thoughts? Obviously not. You are just able to finally see them, because
money is in your mental proximity. So if you look at the law of attraction from
this point of view, it does work. However, it’s not the universe that magically
helps you. It’s your brain that does. If you give your brain a problem to solve,
it will begin solving it. That doesn’t mean it will find the solution
though. But as we’ve seen, mental proximity does have
an effect. Now, believing in law of attraction can actually
do more harm than good. If you believe that you can just think about
something and then it’s going to happen, it’s actually less likely to happen. That’s because you probably won’t form a plan
and take action, that would get you closer to your goal. If you just sit in on the couch and think
about being rich, you’re actually doing yourself a disservice. You have to get off your ass and actually
put in the work. Law of attraction doesn’t work without the
law of action. With that out of the way, you might be wondering
how to keep something in your mental proximity. You might have noticed that it’s not that
easy to be constantly aware of something. That’s because mental proximity fades away
if don’t refresh it. And the best way to strengthen it, is to read,
talk and journal about the desired topic. Reading will expose you to new ideas and you’ll
become more conscious about the topic you’re reading about. So if you start reading a book about social
skills, you’ll become more aware of all the little things people do during social interactions. But when you’re done reading the book, social
interaction will eventually leave your mental proximity, whether it’s 1 week or 1 month
after. You won’t be as aware of it anymore. You could start reading another book, sure,
but the best way to keep something on your mind is to talk or journal about it. You see, both talking and writing are different
forms of thinking. You’re essentially putting your theoretical
thoughts out of your head into the physical world. Talking will help you solidify your ideas
and you’ll be able to remember them for a longer period of time. Now what’s so great about journaling is that
you can come back to whatever you wrote, over and over. That’s why you should always write down a
few key points, in your own words, about whatever you learn. You can then come back, re-read those thoughts
and refresh mental proximity. So give things you want to change or improve
on, mental proximity. Have them on your mind and the way you see
the world will change. Read, talk and journal about the desired topic
at least once per week, to refresh the proximity. Also get off your chair and actually take
action. The mental proximity will help you, but if
you’re not actively seeking out things and taking action towards your goals, then nothing
will happen. Don’t be one of those people who think that
if they just think positive thoughts, the universe will help them. The universe won’t help you. You have to help yourself. Thanks for watching.

    law of attraction is not just attracting what you think about. its attracting what you are , what you do , think , belive , feel, focus on , do habitually…. they are a lot of factors in the place.

    It's a nice theory but unfortunately it's new age mumbo jumbo because science, biology etc doesn't back it up and neither does the fact that there are many law of attraction coaches regurgitating the same stuff over and over for years and yet they are still on YouTube instead of living there lives that law of attraction has created or hasn't created I should say.
    There is only one solution and that is to address the worldwide disease of selfishness and greed, but until then nothing will change, with practicing law of attraction you either get nothing at all or a harsh lesson in karma, the one thing it also feeds is the same greedy, selfish attitude that created the financial and emotional issues in the first place.

    Oh good. I thought you were about to dive into that metaphysical silliness. But no, you kept it scientific. Good job.

    I wanted money then I applied for a full time job and got it now I make a fair amount of money a week and get paid weekly at my new job so I'm super happy.. I thought about my debt and how I can pay it off quicker they called me and offered me to pay a large chunk (not all of it) then they would get rid of the rest of the debt the same week as I got my job.. Super happy so now I'm saving my money instead of continuing to pay off my debt

    omg β€œthe secret” xDD
    It’s soo ridiculous. Dated a girl once that lived by that book. Let me tell you, it didn’t work out for her. πŸ˜‰

    Law of attraction works with or without action. It is all about attracting what u think about and desire most. What if u work work work but u don't get what u desire? It's bcoz you didn't believe or you had doubts about what you was doing. That means law of attraction works with or without action. It is there whether u believe in it or not

    Here I was, all depressed because what seemed like an interesting, rational and somewhat profound YouTube channel was suddenly pushing the 'Laws of Attraction'. I'm glad I stuck around and watched the video instead of unsubscribing.

    Like Robert Kiyosaki's book on making money, or training for the Soccer / Football World Cup,
    It's not enough to just be pumped up, you also need to know the correct methods and how to get to the goals.

    I manifested $80,000 and didn't do a freggin thing!!! I do it all the time and the universe WILL make sure what you need it finds you. For example I wanted to make some extra money and didn't what kind of business to start. I put it in the universe and didn't angst over it everyday, I just waited for the person to show up all the while being content with or without it and BAM showed up like clock work. try small things 1st guys and then work up to bigger things. I'm a pretty positive person in general so LOA or High frequency vibrations was easy to adopt as I realized I would do it all the time and didn't know it. Beginning by saying it doesn't work will ensure that it doesn't, I swear you're gonna work a lot harder for it when you're skeptical.

    I have a theory the low of attraction has a called bliss and when you follow your bliss and do what makes you happy then you no longer need to have any worries. Will Smith actually use this word on a commercial about his experience in skydiving

  • Jolly Holly

    All been interpreted wrong. Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich secret was: You become what you think about. = law of attraction. Simple.

  • Abdullah Bin Kamal

    Your explanation here is not accurate
    You can't get what you want
    You can only get what you are
    Law of attarction only works if you are thinking about an action or profession and not about things or objects.

  • Gabriella.B Dunn

    Vision boards are also a great aid to refresh one’s mental proximity…along with action, you’ll go a long way.
