Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is a New Age belief based on the concept that "like attracts like" and that by focusing on positive thoughts, such as affirming to yourself that you will win a million dollars, your thoughts and affirmations will subsequently manifest themselves by granting you the one million dollars. Your thoughts are similar to magnets. Positive thoughts will attract positive outcomes and vice versa for negative thoughts.

Regardless of the absurdities of such a hypothesis, optimism, in contrast to the Law of Attraction, has been empirically proven to enhance mental health and well-being. But repeating mantras to yourself and demanding that a higher power succumb to your wishes will not grant you instant wealth, fame or complete VIP access to the Playboy Mansion.

According to numerous books written on the subject, in order for the Law of Attraction to work, you must do the following:

1. ASK for what you want

2. BELIEVE (with complete sincerity) that you already have what you want

3. RECEIVE it and be grateful that your request was granted

The Universe or God (or whomever you pray to) will grant your wish if you truly believe, with all your heart, that you already have what you desire (believe until your brain falls out). Being grateful and thinking positive will increase the likelihood that your wish will be granted.
The Best-selling book entitled "The Secret" is about the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is also the main subject in a book called "The Complete Idiot's Guide To The Law of Attraction", by Diane Ahlquist.
