[size=150]The Law of Attraction[/size]

[size=110][color=#663300]This is the law by which we're creating our lives. The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like: debt attracts debt, negativity attracts negativity, failure attracts failure. At the other end of the spectrum, wealth attracts wealth, positivity attracts positivity, and success attracts success.[/color][/size]

We transmit energy constantly; others pick up on that energy and gravitate towards us (or are repelled by us). The Secret is the most recent incarnation of the Law of Attraction, which states that like attracts like. It's as simple as that.

[size=130][color=#385500]You're a positive person when you:[/color][/size]
1. Stay in touch with your dark side and weaknesses, and are willing to grow towards healing and strength
2. See the positive qualities in other people
3. Feel compassion towards yourself and the world (we're all doing the best we can!)
4. Listen to - and try to understand - other perspectives, regardless of how different
5. Give the benefit of the doubt
6. Express your true self in thoughts and actions, gently and honestly (and free others to do the same!)
7. Share your negative thoughts and emotions
8. Celebrate the success and happiness of other people
9. Feel fear and defeat, and keep persevering anyway
10. Follow your dreams and desires

[size=130][color=#5f0000]You're not positive when you:[/color][/size]
1. Ignore your dark side and weaknesses (and then act them out)
2. Focus on other people's mistakes and weaknesses
3. Obsess about being perfect; whether it's at work, at home, or with your appearance (or other people's!)
4. Try to change other people's perspectives and opinions
5. Try to please people constantly and ignore your own needs
6. Let other people's moods and energy dictate your own
7. Swallow your negative thoughts and emotions
8. Resent the successes and joys of others
9. Allow fear and cynicism to harden your heart and color your perspective
10. Ignore your goals, plans, and passions

[size=150]Perfection and popularity[/size]
Positive people are determined to do their best, and to see the best in the world around them. They don't focus on "should have" or idealized, perfect expectations that are impossible to live up to. They have an open heart and a sense of humor. They don't care about being popular or keeping up with the Jones's - and they stay in touch with their hearts and souls.

[size=150]Failures and disagreements[/size]
Positive people make mistakes and own up to them. They keep lines of communication open, opting for discussion and connection - and they're satisfied with "agreeing to disagree." Neither failures nor disagreements faze them, because they know they're part of living and working with humans!

[color=#9f1313]"We are not onlookers peering into the unified field of separate, objective reality - we are the unified field. We can reach beyond the physical body and extend the influence of intelligence. Every thought you are thinking creates a wave in the unified field. It ripples through all the layers of intellect, mind, senses, and matter, spreading out in wider and wider circles. You are like a light radiating not photons but consciousness. As they radiate, your thoughts have an effect on everything. Your relationship to life is the same as that of one cell to your whole body. One cell can talk to your whole body. One cell can influence your whole body. You can talk to the whole of life - influence the whole of life. The whole of life is as alive as we are. The distinction between 'in here' and 'out there' is a false one - as if the heart disregarded the skin because it was not on the inside."

Deepak Chopra

We are always in change and moving toward something. Why not be a creator of self moving toward things that make one a balanced person? I think that we can be whatever we want if we are open to the change and ready to work on self. Everyone for self can put the standards of achievement and step on the path of fulfilment. But, what I think is very important for the application of this law is:

One has to be aware of personal wishes, finding thoughts that feel good, because he/she is going to move toward them.
[color=#9300ca]"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potential -- for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints; possibility never.”
Soren Kierkegaard [/color]

“Self-sabotage" is the opposite polarity of this law. It happens when one thinks what he/she wants and says it, but then goes about making sure it doesn't happen. It is like wanting to see Paris and then going in the opposite direction.
