Basically, we become what we think about. When you intend something to occur in your life, the forces of the universe will cause events to take place that will lead you to obtaining that which you intended. What this means is that you can ask for what you want by intending it in your mind and then allow it to come into your life. By allowing it, what that means is that you believe that what you intend will happen without a doubt.
When you doubt, it will drive away what you want. This is the opposite of the law of attraction. One of the main reasons why most people don't get what they want is because they simply don't believe that they can obtain it. Because of this, events that could have led to them obtaining their intentions will never manifest.
How to Use The Law of Attraction
1. Know what you want.
This is basic. Without a goal or a focus, you will waste a lot of time. When you know exactly where it is you want to be and spend most of your time going in that direction, you will have a much greater chance of getting there.
2. Believe that you can achieve it.
There are lots of things you can do to help increase your belief such as surround yourself with the right people and using visualization. For most of us, having a million dollars seems impossible. It's difficult to truly believe it. However, for a millionaire, it's like believing in gravity. It's already their reality so it's not at all impossible. If they lost everything, they can get it all back because they know it's possible.
By surrounding yourself with people who are already well on their way of achieving the things you want to achieve or with people who have already achieved it, your beliefs that you can create the same reality with your life will skyrocket.
In terms of visualization, when you see your goals as already being accomplished, it will help give you more confidence in yourself and that will allow you to take the necessary actions to accomplish your goals.
3. Take massive action.
You should realize by now that you must take action in order to achieve your goals, but how does this relate to the law of attraction? Well, once you know what you want and believe that you can get it and start to take action, things will start happening to help you achieve your goals.
In The Secret, the movies talks about how once you intend something the universe will move to bring events and people into your life to help make your dreams a reality. The truth is, YOU are the one who causes these things to come into your reality, not the universe. You can intend all you want but if you just sit on the couch all day, nothing will change for you.
Let's say your goal is to get fit. Do you think just intending it while sitting in front of the TV is going to move you any closer to your goal? Of course not. It's when you get off the couch and go to the gym that your life will start to change.
