The Law of Attraction is quite a subjective topic- some people swear by it, and others think it's a pile of utter sh*t.

When I first heard about the concept I was very sceptical. I thought the whole process of thinking about something so much that it'll come true was something you'd expect to read in a children's fiction book. But I began to become intrigued to see what all the fuss was about. 

Unless you're living under a rock, you've probably heard about the book, The Law of Attraction by Rhonda Byrne, which is dedicated to explaining the theory of the law of attraction. I was listening to Steven Bartlett's podcast, Diary of a CEO, the other morning whilst doing my makeup (which if you haven't already, you need to give it a listen because it's super motivational) and he explained how he absolutely hated the book due to it not placing a larger emphasis on the fact that in order to actually achieve the things you're constantly visualising, you actually have to WORK for them. I couldn't agree more. 

What most people fail to understand or put into practice is that the law of attraction is more than just thinking about something and then it mysteriously happening. The whole process should merely act as a motivation to achieve and constantly remind you of the reason of why you do what you do- why you get up in the morning, why you do the job do, why you started in the first place.

 Some may scientifically argue that it's proven that everything consists of energy, even our thoughts. So it makes sense that every thought we radiate emits into the atmosphere. I don't disagree with this, but I believe that constantly motivating yourself to achieve what you want will allow you to fall into more opportunities to get you where you want. Whether you believe that is the result of a greater force providing these opportunities for you or the result of hard work is up to you. 

The reason I decided to write this post was that after listening to Steve's podcast, I started thinking about the things that I used to wish and hope for over and over would happen, and I realised they did.

Safe to say I was shook. 

So I'm keen to know your thoughts on the law of attraction or if you've ever visualised and manifested things into your life. Make sure to let me know in the comments!
