Hard work and the Law Of Attraction are actually more related than one might think. Taking personal action, and keeping faith when no results seem forthcoming, are two of the hardest things you will ever do.
Sadly, there has been a preponderance of misguided interpretation and direction for making the Law Of Attraction become a reality in our lives.
The assertions to "let go"..."be at ease"...and, "allow it to come to you" are all meant for cues about detaching from one specific result, NOT about desiring to be rich, but failing to take advantage of the opportunities the Universe will provide.
Back in 2006, when The Secret first came out, hundreds of thousands of people wrongly assumed that just dreaming on the couch about checks being deposited in their accounts, or unexplained sacks of money showing up on their front porch, would bring about the manifestation of untold wealth.
What is even more sad was the exploitation of this erroneous interpretation by charlatans who spotted easy prey and easy money.
Workshops, seminars, and even entire conferences costing upwards of $1500 per head, sprung up to perpetuate the deception of no-sweat spiritual profits.
People sat through (expensive) presentations that made them feel good by holding onto the visualization of tremendous riches flowing effortlessly to them.
When it did not happen...when they lost their homes, their jobs, and their savings in the financial/housing collapse in 2007-2010, they became completely disenchanted.
Jenni Shears, a realtor from Phoenix AZ who also runs a successful online business, said, "I had so many friends who swore by 'The Secret'. They were completely enamored with with the idea of holding visions of checks coming to their mailbox each week, visualizing their bank accounts increasing consistently, and meditating on financial success.
Sadly, they never made the connection with taking action. Some of my friends told me about business ventures that came into their thoughts...but they never developed them. They did NOT want to do the hard work that comes with creating a home business, or an online business.
They did not want to deal with obstacles, setbacks, or hours of work just to hit a brick wall. I was about to scream!
Some of them had wonderful ideas. I even modified a couple of those ideas for my own online business when the housing bubble burst, and I made significant money. Extremely good money. It's even better now.
Yes, I put in hours of frustrating hard work learning some basic technology, but it paid off. They could have done the same thing.
It was all so simple. Just take action. The Universe is not going to give you something for nothing.
Hard work is a critical part of the Law Of Attraction."
What people did not understand is that yes, riches will definitely flow effortlessly to you, but you must hold strongly to the faith that it will happen...and you must take some kind of personal action to bring it about.
In order to call in the wonderful promises of the Law Of Attraction, you must have complete faith that results will happen, and that your life will definitely improve.
Please be realistic, this is NOT going to happen after a few days, or even a few months. God/The Universe is not in the business of creating magic. What He wants to do is have you develop an unwavering relationship with him.
A relationship where you live your life by His Word, boldly asking for what you desire, and having complete faith that He will deliver...even when you are experiencing no tangible results.
This is where hard work and the Law Of Attraction intersect.
In his outstanding, simple book (The Science Of Getting Rich) on acquiring wealth, Wallace Wattles is extremely candid, saying, "To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work man is called upon to perform.
He follows that up in his next statement, "There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought; it is the hardest work in the world."
Please integrate this into your own awareness of how the Law Of Attraction really works. If you cannot persevere with the goodness of this thought process, you will become limited in the results you will achieve.
It will be easy when things are going great. It will require the hard work when it seems like God has turned his back on all of your efforts.
Riches are not going to come to you by snagging the winning PowerBall ticket, or an unknown distant relative leaving you a staggering fortune.
Your wealth will be created through an opportunity the Universe will provide. It will come in the form of an idea, or meeting someone who can assist you, or even an event that triggers an understanding of what you need to do.
It will be work that you will enjoy, but it will also be work that must be done. Daydreaming about how you will use this opportunity...laziness...or procrastination will NOT be part of the equation.
Good intentions do not count...only right actions.
You must take personal action in order to call in the financial increase you want and deserve.
There will be challenges and obstacles along the way. God/The Universe is looking at how you will handle them...and how your faith will be sustained.
You will be given the solution to overcome them in the most profitable way, but it will require some focused processing of your own.
You will not have to compete with anyone. You will not have to worry about a "deal" being once-in-a-lifetime. The right people and the right situation will be brought to you, but it will not be instantly.
It is a real possibility that it may take several years of trying to do the right thing. This is how it has been for me.
My home Internet business is continually evolving. Yes, I am finding easier ways to make good money, but I still have to sit down each day to the keyboard, and create the content that I am directed to.
Always...always...give thanks that you can do the hard work required to call in the Law Of Attraction.
Your words are powerful. Choose them wisely. Yes, this is challenging work...to speak only positive words when nothing is happening...to refrain from complaining when you are experiencing a block. But it is demanding work that will reward you with financial increase.
We are all in this together. I am truly thankful for the people who uplift me, validate me, and pray for my success.
I am thankful that hard work and the Law Of Attraction has brought them into my life.
