Why the Law of Attraction does not work

The Law of Attraction. Everything that comes into our lives is by virtue of the images that we’re holding in our mind. Put in simpler terms, what we always think about will appear in our lives as reality. Some people say it is total BS, while others tell of the miraculous results they’ve experienced. So what went wrong for half the room, and why the Law of Attraction does not work for them?

Consistency is the K_Y

The thing that most people fail to… accept… is that you could not change your life around by 15 to 20 minutes of right or correct thinking (or feeling), especially if your subconscious mind has been shaped by years of negative thoughts. Some background – our mind is divided into the conscious and subconscious mind. The conscious mind does all the thinking and reasoning, but it is the subconscious that is running the show and all the decisions that we make is based on what this mind ‘thinks’. Our subconscious has been shaped by years of either positive/negative thoughts and you know what, some academics are now theorizing that the subconscious has been influenced for centuries (!!!!!) by our ancestors and passed down through many generations to us.  

Changing your predominant thoughts and feelings is HARD WORK. It takes discipline and resilience, particularly if you have been a negative person your entire life. To change your life around permanently, you need to have an attitude of gratitude all the time, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in.


It has been three years since I venture into the world of self-help books and products. I used to sweat the small stuff in life, lose my temper easily.. It has been a long and challenging journey, but recently I realized that I am a very different person now compared to who I was three years ago. I have been a negative person for most of my life up to that point. And that caused difficult people and situations to come into my life, making it hard for me to practice love, gratitude and all the other things taught by the self-help teachers.

All The Best To You Yeah!!

Just a final word before I leave you today. Persist and persist in believing in the Law of Attraction and practicing all that you learn from the books and teachers, and you will finally reach a point where love, gratitude, joy and all that is good becomes second nature to you.


P.S. One person that understands the law in depth is Bob Proctor. He has studied/taught thinking for more than 40 years. If you want to learn to use the law of attraction to manifest the life you’ve always wanted, read Magic in your Mind and learn about your six mental faculties.

And that’s it from me today.. Please share if you’ve enjoyed this:). Thanks for sticking with me, and if you have any questions or comments regarding the Law of Attraction, please leave them below and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

  1. Agree. Law Of Attraction doesn’t work for some people because of the subconscious mental block that prevents them from receiving. But there’s another key thing that people failed to do which is taking Action. It has to be coupled with taking massive action to produce results. Visualization, right mindset and taking action produce results.

    • Well said, but remember that INSPIRED ACTION is the right/best form of action to take. Visualization gives you the inspiration you need to take inspired action, which comes with feelings of JOY and EXCITEMENT. That’s how you know you are taking inspired action.

  2. I really agree with this statement — Changing your predominant thoughts and feelings is HARD WORK. It takes discipline and resilience, particularly if you have been a negative person your entire life.

    I have a friend who is always pessimistic about himself. He will always find excuses because of his pessimistic attitude. Luckily I have one principle – that tells me to aim higher for myself. Even though I know it is quite impossible but at least the higher your aim the higher your outcome.

    • Continue being yourself, and keep learning about the Law of Attraction. Once you know how it works, abundance will suddenly come pouring into your life.

      And let your friend know about this site :).

  3. I do believe in the law of attraction, but some effort does need to be put into it. As the saying goes Rome was not built in a day, neither will positive thoughts change anything a day. As you said years of negative will first need to be eradicated before new beliefs can take place. Great article enjoyed reading it from a different perspective.

  4. Yes I agree with what you are saying in this article. I also believe you receive blessings from being a doer like the bible says you reap what you sow. Plant the seeds and make the changes to grow the positive changes you want in your life

    • Well said, and good luck!

      One thing to note – make sure the actions you take are inspired. When you engage in practices associated with the Law of Attraction like visualization, you’ll be amazed by the inspirations you get – seemingly out of ‘nowhere’. And then you will be able to take inspired action, which is action that you take when you feel inspired to do it, and is always accompanied by a rush of energy, as well as feelings of excitement, enthusiasm and joy.

  5. Really nice website, nice content.
    I can see that you put all your effort and creativity for it.
    I like the sites design and its simplicity and how you can easily read all you want to know

    Keep up to good work.
