Well I've been fascinated with the whole idea of the law of attraction for some time but also thought it was a load of farce. I've listened to audio
books of Napoleon Hill and still couldn't understand it. It was a long journey for me as I've read many small posts and articles and the entire
topic is a rather shady one kept under wraps. However, If I'm wrong here, please do educate me.
So to keep it short and simple, I've been doing some thinking of how powerful the brain is due to the sheer number of calculations one executes for
each action and it was mostly related to how we do things. They say
the hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.
What is the law of attraction?
The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim "like attracts like" which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by
focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.
(Small disclaimer everything from this point on is an opinion of mine)
Now, it's a lot like this when we are attempting to do something, anything at all, once we have the basic knowledge we can do it. So for example,
let's say there's something on a shelf and you can't quite reach it, you'll have to jump to reach it. We don't realize it or just very often
overlook the idea that we visualize the jump. Within that visualization, we do many calculations, how much high will I have to jump to reach this
item, grab this item, safely remove it from where it is and so forth. When we jump, we'll most likely grab the item once we envision ourselves
grabbing it, if there is doubt within our minds then there is a fair chance you'll fail or the interaction will be a bit sloppy.
With that said, from the audio books i've listened, they stress knowing exactly what you want, and how you'll get it step by step and visualizations
much like the above, but it won't just come to you, you have to actively get it.
If the above example wasn't clear, we basically visualize everything we do. In the event you should be running across the street, not like a mad man
but as an analytical human with the belief you will get across safely then chances are you will be successful. If you are running across the street
and think negatively chances are you'll get hit because you may deviate from your original envisioned plan and that deviation ruins the calculation
you had previously made and that millisecond is the cause of your failure.
So essentially there is no easy way out and there is no thinking your way to riches, you will and you must work just as hard as another person. But if
you envision yourself doing something, it makes it 10x easier when you actually do it, I guess you could say it's like practicing mentally.
