Why the Law of Attraction is Not Working

The law of attraction is a science that is already in effect.  It tells us that whatever we want is at our fingertips. We only need to apply the right method to attract them. But why is the vast majority of people in the world not happy with their finances, with their jobs, with their health, or with their relationships?  Why do most people fail to build their ideal careers, attract their dream partners, or start to earn millions? Why is the law of attraction not working for you?

While many may have never heard of the law of attraction, some who have a little understanding of this law still find it difficult to achieve their dreams.  Here are five reasons why the law of attraction does not work.

  1. Reality is a Reflection of Your Inner World 

The world we live in is the reflection of our inner world. If your inner world is in harmony, you will experience harmony in the outer world. Everything will fit perfectly into place and you will find your life in perfect harmony. 

On the other hand, if your inner-world is in disharmony and is dominated by negative emotions like fear, anger, frustration, doubt, hate, and guilt, your life will feel like a constant struggle. You will experience defeat, lose faith in yourself, and choose a life of limitations. It is sometimes impossible to change the things that happen outside, but it is possible to change what happens within. The law of attraction won’t work for you if you fail to bring your inner world in harmony.

  1. There is a Vicious Cycle of Failure 

Failure is a part of life. In fact, it is necessary and critical for our self-growth. Every time we experience failure, we should accept it and move on.  When we fail to accept failures and start anew, we unconsciously reinforce the belief that we deserve to fail. As the negative belief grows, we become focused on failures and direct all our attention on how to avoid failures, rather than on how to pursue success. The universe then gives us more failures because we are unwittingly asking for it. 

Our negative beliefs become irresistibly powerful and we start to accept the fact that we are destined to fail.  Unconsciously we expect defeat, and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. As a result, we become trapped in a vicious cycle of failure. 

If we had a positive core belief that we would be successful, that belief would be reinforced by successful incidents, our subconscious mind would be convinced that we are meant to be successful, and as a result, we attract success. 

This process follows the simple rule that like attracts like.  It is our deep-rooted beliefs that bring us all the negative or positive incidents that we face in our daily lives.

  1. Lacking the Willingness to Do What It Takes

Sometimes even a positive mindset can fail to bring the desired result.  Simply believing in your dreams will not manifest things for you.  Achieving a life goal requires action.  If you are unwilling to do what it takes to chase your dream, you won’t be able to reach it.  

  1. Not being Patient Enough 

You have to trust the process in order to manifest something.  Manifestation can take time. If you lose your patience and give up, the process will stop. It is important to trust your vision, trust the process, and wait patiently. 

  1. Spending Too Much Time Anticipating 

Getting what you want in life using the law of attraction is simple. Set your intention and become clear about what you want, believe in your abilities, believe in the universe, practice manifestation techniques, and keep working on your goal. The universe will do the rest. 

If your dream is too big, it is normal that you make assumptions about the possible ways the universe can make it happen. Let the universe sort this out. Trying to figure out the universe’s ways of manifesting things may hinder the process. Just hold the vision in your mind, continue to work on your goal and wait patiently. Soon your vision will become a reality.
