The Law Of Attraction Explained In Less Than 200 Words

“Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting”

— The Secret

Do you remember the book, The Secret? I’ll let you in on a secret of how it works.

Oh, don’t get me wrong. I’m not an expert in psychology, psychiatry, meta-physiology, or any other -ologies, but I’m pretty sure I understand at least one part of The Secret’s Law of Attraction, in a very simple way.

We want to be surrounded with what we feel.

If we’re happy, we want everyone to be happy. We want the sun to shine. We want flowers. We want peace, love and joy.

If we’re crabby, we want everyone to be crabby. We want rain. We want to be sick. We want mess. We think the world’s going to hell in a hand basket.

And if we want it, we make it.

If we’re happy, we go out of our way to be with other happy people or try to cheer people up. If we’re crabby, we go find the grumpiest people in the office, or complain until people console us. That reinforces our belief that the world is either happy like us or crabby like us.

Conclusion – If you want to attract happiness, don’t hang around crabby people.

(Well, at least it makes sense to me.)

I wanted to be happy tonight, so I volunteered to be the target speaker at another Toastmaster contest. In short, I hung around happy people.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!

    I’ve always been the grumpiest! But when I started to learn more of metaphysics, I got to read a lot on the Law of Attraction and it changed me in a lot of ways. Great post…!

    We’re all grumpy from time to time. But if we know that hanging around other grumpy people and dumping our problems on them, we’re just bringing them down and ourselves down farther.

    Keep smiling and I mean it when I write …. Cheers!
