Why the Law of Attraction isn’t Working for You


Ever wonder why the Law of Attraction isn’t working for you? You have seen the secret movie, you read all the books, you are applying different methods, but nothing seems to be working.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Using the Law of Attraction properly is fairly simple once you understand it. For some reason, all these gurus do not teach you practical ways to apply the law of attraction and actually get results.

8 reasons why the law of attraction is not working for you

1. You are not clear on what you want

The first step to getting the Law of Attraction to work for you is knowing what it is that you want. This may seem like common sense, but many people do not take the time to get clear on what they want.

They just think about what they don’t want or they focus on the lack of what they want instead of the abundance. When you are clear on what you want, it becomes much easier to manifest it into your life.

If you want to manifest love, a better relationship, or manifest someone back to you, you need to be completely clear on your end goal.

2. You don’t believe that you can have it

The second step is to believe that you can have it. This step is often the hardest for people because they don’t think that they are worthy of what they want or they think that it’s impossible.

If you don’t believe that you can have it, then how will you ever be able to get it? You must change the beliefs that are in your subconscious mind. You must stop thinking on the negative if you want things to happen.

3. You focus on the lack of what you want instead of the abundance

The third step is to focus on the abundance of what you want. This means that you should not focus on the lack of money that you have, but rather, focus on the fact that you want to manifest money.

If you are trying to manifest more money. When you focus on the lack of something, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. However, when you focus on the abundance of something, it becomes a reality.

4. You don’t take action

The fourth step is to take action. Many people get stuck in the planning stage and never actually take any action. If you want to manifest something into your life, you need to take action and put in the work.

Just sitting around and thinking about it will not get you anywhere. Once you start applying the law of attraction you will get inspired to do certain things at certain times.

You are guided by something higher than yourself that will help you fulfill what you are trying to manifest.

5. You give up too soon

The fifth step is to be persistent and never give up. Many people give up too soon because they don’t see any results right away. However, the Law of Attraction takes time to work.

You need to be patient and keep pushing forward. If something isn’t working in your life then you must be patient and use conscious creation to begin attracting good things.

6. You don’t have a strong enough why

The sixth step is to have a strong enough why. You need to be really passionate about what you want in order to manifest it into your life. If you are not passionate about it, then you will give up when the going gets tough.

7. You don’t have a clear plan

The seventh step is to have a clear plan. When you have a clear plan, it becomes much easier to manifest what you want into your life. You need to know exactly what you need to do in order to get what you want and make things happen.

8. You are not consistent

The eighth step is to be consistent. You need to keep applying the principles of the Law of Attraction in order to see results. Many people give up after a few days because they don’t see any changes.

However, if you are persistent and consistent, you will eventually see results.

When you apply these eight steps, you will be able to get the Law of Attraction to work for you. Just remember to stay positive and have faith that you can achieve anything that you want. Keep your thoughts feelings and beliefs on what you want.

More reasons the law of attraction fails

First of all, we all know the phrase ask and you shall receive. That’s not really true and here’s why. If you are asking for something that means you do not have it. It is something that is lacking in your life.

Think of it this way… the universe, source, higher power, God, whatever you want to call it only says yes to our desires. It does not judge and it never says no. I like to picture it as that big genie in the sky like in the movie The Secret.

when the law of attraction isn't working for you signSo, let’s say I want more money. The universe says yes, yes you do granted, you will want more money. I want a new car, yes… yes you do granted, you will want a new car and you will continue to want a new car.

Asking for things you do not have will only get you more of not having it, I hope that makes sense.

The only way you can actually attract things into your life is to feel as if you already have it. As if your desire is achieved. Your goal is met, it is done. If you can conjure up those feelings you will manifest your desire. It will show up in your life.

We use our thoughts, affirmations, positive thinking, subliminals, whatever tool you want to use to create the emotion inside yourself of already having your desire. This is how the law of attraction works.

This is the language that the universe actually understands. It doesn’t understand words or thoughts it understands feelings and emotions this is the true power of how you attract any desire. Read some of Neville Goddard’s books

Practice using the law of attraction

If you can master this you can attract anything you want into your life. The more you practice this the better you will get and the faster your manifestations will happen.

This is why in another article on our website I suggest doing manifestation experiments. Practice manifesting on things you really don’t care about. Like my tennis ball experiment.

Do this, go into a quiet room and relax. Take a few deep breaths and clear your mind. Now think of something you want to manifest in your life. Think about it as if you already have it. why the law of attraction isn't working for you written in the clouds

How would it feel to have it right now? Can you hold it in your hands? What does it feel like? What does it smell like? Do this until you can almost feel it. Then, be grateful that it is yours. Done deal, thank you universe.

Let it go …forget about it for now. Your order has been placed. Let the universe figure out how and when it will bring it to you. It is on its way.

Most of you will need to repeat this exercise daily unless you have a lot of experience using the law of attraction and manifesting your desires.

    Hi MIke,
    I have a question that relates to manifesting objects and manifesting relationships. So i can totally grasp the visualization technique for receiving a tennis ball like you did, as in visualize a tennis ball near your car etc then letting go …forget about it and then there it is. However what i am struggling to grasp is how does the same thing work for getting your ex back? ….i mean i visualize me and my ex back together…doing fun things together, i have hundreds of thoughts a day of us being happy and doing things together…living in the end like you say, quite a lot of thoughts are of pasts fun things we did…which means they have already happend. Obviously i am trying to act like we are already back together…however this has been 8 months now…still nothing. Can you tell me if i am doing the techniques wrong?

    • Hi, it sounds like you are doing everything right, accept thinking about things that happened in the past especially if they are negative.

      It takes practice but you need to control your thoughts and not think about things you do not want to happen.

      The past is gone there’s nothing you can do about it. Concentrate on the way you want things to be and nothing else.

      Don’t worry about how or when it’s going to happen just think and feel as if it already has if you can do that it will definitely work.

    Hi, so I am really wanting to manifest multiple things into my life right now. I dont know what to do. Should I just stick with manifesting ONE thing at a time? Is manifesting multiple things, too difficult? Im just wondering why Im not seeing any results, YET. Do I need to be more patient?

    • If you’re new to this until you get the process down completely, I would recommend manifesting one thing at a time you will build your confidence in the process.

      Once you prove to yourself that you can do this and you are in complete control of your life manifesting becomes easy.

      The more you do it the easier it becomes and you will have no trouble manifesting many things at the same time.

        Thank you! 🙂

  3. Hello. Lately I have been trying to move on from a man I have not heard from in four months. I was able to forget about him, but I kept on having dreams about him wanting to start over with me. I still love him, and wish that the relationship had not ended due to his job. I’ve been trying subliminals for a day and I wanted to know, what how can I make this effective and work into letting him come back to me? I changed my number and so did he so how will he be able to contact me?

    Hi Mike. One of my really good friend has left London and taken up a job in Saudi Arabia. Can I manifest back to London and that she didn’t like her job etc and becomes a permanent London resident as I would like to see her more? I’m really sad she’s left .

    • Think and hold your thoughts on what you want. Being sad will bring you more sadness.

      I know it is not easy but you must control your thoughts and feelings. This is how we show the universe what we want. This is the language it understands.

    What if I ask for my desires , numerous times throughlut the day? Is that too much? Should I only ask once per day?

    • Asking comes from a feeling of not having something… lack. You should be thinking and feeling “as if” you already have what you desire.

      • Valerie Valerie

        Thank You Mike!

        • Valerie Valerie

          So how many times per day should I think and feel already having it?

          • You should get to a point where you feel like that the entire day. If you live as if you already have your desire law of attraction will bring it to you in the most efficient way possible.

    It is possible to focus and manifest several things in same time?(maybe i do not get all at once)

    • You can manifest several things at once but, usually, it is easier to focus on one desire or goal at a time.
