Why Law of Attraction Fails And What You Can Do About It


Ever wonder why law of attraction fails? You watched the movies, read the books, and put into practice the law of attraction to manifest something in your life that you desired and it did not work.

You swear you are using the law of attraction right, at least you thought you were.

Why does the law of attraction fail?

The problem is most people still do not get how to use the law of attraction properly. Therefore getting no results and then going around stating that law attraction doesn’t work, it’s fake…all a scam. Girl sad because the law of attraction failed for her

What most people do is they think about what they do not want without realizing it.

Most of the comments and many of the emails I received asking for help tell me that people are using the law of attraction completely wrong.

If you go read some of the comments on my other post you can see people are thinking about exactly what they don’t want. For example, my boyfriend is now with someone else, I can see he is happy, he has moved on, this isn’t working.

I can’t see how this will ever work, they are with someone else new now…. And so on. I can tell by these statements that most people are doing exactly what they should not be doing for the law of attraction to work.

The same principles apply to using subliminals. Ever wonder why subliminals are not working for you?

When you use the law of attraction, you have to think about what you want, not what you don’t want. If your goal is to get back together with someone, then you should be thinking about how happy and in love you are with him/her. You should be picturing the two of you together, smiling and in love.

If you are thinking about how much you don’t want him/her to be with someone else, then you are focusing on the wrong thing. You will get more of what you focus on, so if you focus on the fact that he/she is now with someone else and how much you don’t want that, then you will only get more of that.

You have to be in a better mood and state when using the law of attraction as well. If you are feeling angry, hurt, or resentful, then it is going to be very hard for the law of attraction to work for you. You need to be feeling positive and happy when using it.

So, if you are not getting the results that you desire using the law of attraction, then try using it in a different way. Make sure you are thinking about what you want, not what you don’t want. And make sure you are in a good mood when using it!

Top 10 Reason Law of Attraction Fails

1. You’re not focused on what you want

2. You focus on what you don’t want

3. You’re not feeling positive and happy when using it

4. You’re using it in the wrong way

5. You need to be patient

6. It’s not a quick fix

7. You’re trying to control the outcome

8. You don’t believe it will work

9. You’re not taking action when necessary

10. It’s a combination of all the above!

If you’re still struggling to get the law of attraction to work for you, it is probably a combination of all the above. You need to try different things until you find what works for you and make sure you are patient! It’s not a quick fix, but it can work if you put in the effort.

The Law of Attraction States You get what you think about.

Read that statement several times. You get and attract into your life what the majority of your thoughts are on. When I hear statements like I see my boyfriend with someone else, he’s so happy now, they look like a good couple, what can I do, I miss him so much…

They are thinking about what they are missing, what they are lacking, what they do not want to attract into their lives and focusing on all the wrong things that are just going to bring them more of the same because that’s what they are thinking about most of the time.

I will say it again, you get what you think about if you’re thinking about thoughts like the above paragraph that’s all you’re going to attract more of into your life whether you want it or not. This is why the law of attraction fails for most people.

You cannot attract what you want into your life by thinking about what you do not want, the universe knows no difference and will give you what you are picturing in your mind.

How to Actually Make The Law of Attraction Work

By holding thoughts and pictures in your mind you are telling the universe exactly what you desire in your life. If you are thinking about your ex with another person basically you are telling the universe by thoughts and pictures this is what you want.

You must hold pictures in your mind, think thoughts and get into feelings of already having something.

Then you are telling the universe by thoughts and pictures this is what I want, and then and only then the law of attraction will work for you. Do not worry about how that is not your job, it will happen in its own most efficient way. Many times in ways we would never expect.

The Law of attraction works and that has been proven many times. Learn how to use it properly and your life will never be the same.

The law of attraction is not a scam. It is a real, proven principle that works if you know how to use it properly.

Most people fail because they think about what they do not want and this just brings more of the same into their lives. To make the law of attraction work for you, focus on what you do want and nothing else.

Hold pictures and thoughts of what you want in your mind and the law of attraction will do the rest. You may not see the results you desire overnight, but if you stay consistent and focused on what you want, you will get there.

    I have been in a relationship with my sweetheart for the last 2 years. This year I made a mistake that I was against. I never wanted to do that but it went wrong. And so I feel very guilt about that mistake. So how do I use the law of attraction in this guilt?

    • The best thing you can do is forget about it and move on. Things that happen in our past are gone and there’s nothing we can ever do about them.

      Thinking or worrying about things that happened in the past will just attract more of the same in your present.

      You need to think about and keep your mind on what you do want, then you will manifest a different future

    But how am I supposed to detach myself from what i want when i have to think about what i want and how I want my ex back it just doesn’t make sense

      Perhaps try doing fun things that you enjoy and make yourself happy like hobbies, going cinema
      And spending time with positive peoples. I’ve found it really helpful reading the secret stories as they’re inspirational and positive and often people are in the same position as you.

    Question…i, like a lot of ppl love my ex dearly…in my opinion she is the greatest woman to walk the planet. Now MOST hours on most days i am confident but some days when projecting loving thoughts i break and there are tears and unbelief for 15 mins. So…do those 15 minutes effectively kill the dream? Am i back to square one?

    Hi Mike,

    Great post! I did comment on the other posts a few months ago regarding a guy is like to attract back after briefly dating 2 years ago. He isn’t physically back yet, but I have been seeing his surname and the number 11 quite often (not necessarily in the time of day either). I have taken these as positive signs that what I am doing is working! I’ve stopped visualizing as it has begun to feel like a chore and instead, I’m living my life! I think about my guy during the day, but positive bought a only!

    I truly believe my guy is on his way! Thank you for such uplifting posts 🙂
