Are you down in the dumps? Forever feeling like a pessimist? Based on a book read by 21 million people, read this article about the law of attraction and you’ll turn from Negative Nelly to Positive Pat.

Practising the Law of Attraction is said to be one of the most helpful tools used to help achieve your life objectives.

So, what is the Law of Attraction?

If you talk, act, think and generally exude positivity, then you’ll attract positivity into your life. Likewise with negativity, if you exude negativity then you’ll attract negativity. Essentially the Law of Attraction states that like attracts like, energy attracts energy.

‘like attracts like’

For example, if something has upset you, and you continue to think about the ordeal, you tend to find that you’ll become even more upset.

The Secret by Rhonda Bryne, as aforementioned has sold over 21 million copies in print, being translated to over 44 languages, being featured two times by The Oprah Winfrey Show and also having combined gross film revenues in excess of $300m in sales.


Here is a summary of the world famous’ The Secret;


Your Mind is like a Transmission Tower

Think of a frequency in a similar way to how a TV works. TV’s have frequencies known to you and I, as channels. If we don’t want to watch a channel, we’ll change it. This tunes into a different frequency and shows us a different channel. Your thought’s become things. Thoughts have frequencies, as you think, those thoughts will attract similar frequencies. Change your thoughts, to change your life.


Ask, Believe and Receive

If you want anything new in your life, whether that be it; material goods, changes in routine or to find your soulmate, you need to follow three steps; asking, believing and receiving. Each step actively involves thinking these things over and over in your mind.

When you’re asking for something you need to be very specific and clear about what you desire. Next, believe what you’re asking can come actually come true and materialise. Finally, you must act as if you have already received it. Enjoy the feeling of ‘already having it’.

According to The Secret’s Law of Attraction, the purpose of this last step is make your mind think that you already have it because that will subconsciously, inevitably lead you to what you want.


Living with Laughter will bring Good Health

There have been several scientific studies that show laughter is such a powerful emotion that it directly correlates to helping cure illness as well as bringing happiness you and those around you. Think of laughter as the best type of natural medicine.

If you find it difficult to laugh, start with a full smile, then with time gradually increase that full smile to laughter. Do things that will help you laugh, like going to a Comedy Show.


Regularly Practice Visualising

Visualising is one of the most powerful methods of the Law of Attraction. Imagine and think about what it is you desire regularly. Painting this imprint in your mind will only motivate you to work harder towards your desired thing, whilst subconsciously attracting all components for what you require to complete your goal.


Give Money to Receive More Money

First and foremost vocally and mentally give thanks and appreciation for the money you do have, for this will bring future prosperity as like attracts like.

Think of this like Karma – what comes around, goes around. The Secret explains; giving and generosity are powerful acts of kindness. Be altruistic and the universe will mirror your outflow with an abundance of inflow. This doesn’t mean shopping to buy the latest dress, suit or any material good for yourself, rather it refers to giving to charity for example.

This Christmas, I’m volunteering again at my local homeless shelter run by Crisis at Christmas (one of the UK’s largest homeless charity). For this, I’ve set up a Just Giving page where Start Smarter have donated and you can too!


Show Love and Respect to Yourself

A famous philosopher once said that the traits and attitudes of the people closest to you, are what you become.

Take the time to love and respect yourself. You’ll find that the universe will respond by sending you people that love and respect the same traits you love about yourself.

For clarity, this should not be interpreted as your pass to be narcissistic and excessively self-absorbed, instead take time out to thank yourself, do things you love, dispose of things that don’t fall into your ideals of showing respect towards you.


In summary, be grateful, happy and give thanks for all the positive the in your life – there is always somebody worse off. But crucially the Law of Attraction states that these actions will bring future happiness and a wealth of whatever you desire. Welcome to The Secret.

    Ok ok ok Mr Nazi, I don’t know where to begin, like honestly I’m at a loss for words.

    Firstly I hope you understand what I write as after reading the article it doesn’t seem English is your first language, I’m not sure what language you speak but using google translate has left your article full of weird nonsensical gibberish of an attempt at the English language.

    Secondly, eh? You do realize you’ve severely mistaken the concept of love with egotism right? You come across as ridiculously narcissistic! Then have the nerve to acknowledge the concept of narcissism!

    Your article is called the law of attraction, but where in the hell have you even acknowledged the art of a relationship and what “laws” are involved in creating and sustaining one? All you go on about is making yourself feel better? Again ego much?

    Look honestly it was my mistake for reading this trash, honestly that’s on me. But let me give you some advice, it’s clear you’re some coffee barista with dreams of grandeur. Your job is to stay below people like me who, you know actually have brains and give to charity without showing off about it? Give it a rest and go back to your sad little life and stop writing these crappy, pathetic, obtuse “articles”.

    The fact you’ve come this far just screams to me you haven’t had a single person in your life tell you what a douche you really are, have you? Well in that regard it is my absolute honor to tell you, you’re the living embodiment of the most asinine of asinine. Sit down and keep your mouth shut like you’re supposed to.

      Hi Sarah, thank you for taking the time to comment on my article, doing so really helps boost me up in the search engine rankings. 🙂

      In regards to my grasp of the English language, my ability has got me to the place I am today, so it’s done it’s job just great. It seems maybe your understanding is some what limited for you to draw the conclusions you’ve conveyed.

      One of the definitions of ‘love’ I like; ‘letting somebody be free’ – this can be left open to interpretation. You clearly don’t know me very well for you label me as ‘egotistical’, but hey, I’ll leave you to continue keyboard bashing if it makes you feel better (and because remember it improves this articles rankings).

      Just to break it down for you in layman’s terms, a few of the concepts this article touches on are that; sometimes life is about taking the time to think about your own feelings rather than prioritising another’s over your own. It’s also about having a positive mindset and putting your situation into perspective to another’s whom could be far worse than yours.

      Whether I am coffee barista (I’m not) or not, there’s nothing wrong with that. Coffee Barista’s are not “below anybody” in this world. I’m intrigued into what you do for a living that you feel is so above Barista’s?

      Moreover, you’ll probably be sad to hear that labelling me/this article as “sad, crappy, pathetic, obtuse or asinine” doesn’t phase me one bit. It’s more so that you’re criticising those with “dreams of grandeur”. There was a famous saying coined by the great Martin Luther King Jr. “I have a dream!” – it all starts with a dream Sarah. Barista’s can have dreams, Joe Blogs can have dreams, anybody and everybody can have dreams, and I’m afraid to inform you, there’s nothing you can do about that Sarah.

      I promoted the Just Giving page as much as I could in order to increase donations and raise awareness towards the fantastic charitable work Crisis undertake. It had nothing to do with “showing off”. I donate to various charities which It worked a dream, we surpassed the £500 goal within 20 odd days thanks to the promotion in this article coupled with other promotion. You should try registering to volunteer at one of Crisis’s homeless shelter this coming Christmas. Alternatively try starting a blog and maybe doing something similar for a good cause. If you need a website designed, the Start Smarter Website Design team produce some amazing websites.

      P.S. You’re comment has, conversely, further motivated to stand up and speak up like I am (and we all are) supposed to. So once again, I’m grateful for that. (Being grateful is one of the Laws of Attraction the author Rhonda Byrne writes. Try it, it really works. It’s working right now for me! )
