Many people try to put the Law of Attraction into practice and then complain it does not work. In fact my experience suggests far more people have this experience than those who find it does work. Why is this? Is it that the whole idea of the Law of Attraction is wrong? And what does this have to do with motivation anyway?
The answer is that there is nothing wrong with the Law of Attraction, but everything wrong with the way most people try to use it. If you have not worked hard on pumping up your motivation it is a bit like trying to drive a car without putting any petrol in it. If the tank is empty, the car will not move no matter how hard you press on the accelerator. And if you do not have the right motivation, the Law of Attraction is unlikely to work properly for you no matter how often you repeat your affirmations and stare at your vision board.
Actually, you may feel that last sentence not quite correct, as staring at your vision board should start to build your motivation. In my view that is its main purpose. But I still stand by what I have said. Many people don't get motivated when they use their vision boards.
If motivation is so important, how can you make sure you really have it?
Begin by looking at your goals and dreams. Do they excite you? Really excite you?
It is not enough simply to say "Yes! I really want that!". Motivation goes much deeper than this. When you look at a goal you want to achieve you should feel a state change. There should be something deep within you that resonates with it. There should be deep and powerful feelings about it. If so, then you are motivated. If not, then you have to do something about it, or you will probably not achieve the goal.
The first step is to find out whether this goal is fully aligned to your inner values. If it is not, then it will be difficult for you to get really motivated. My experience suggests that more than half the people who set out to achieve a goal are not really motivated to achieve it because it is not aligned to their inner values.
Do you even know what your inner values really are?
A good start to finding out is to take the goal and start day dreaming about it. How does it make you feel? What thoughts come into your mind? Follow the trails of those thoughts and see where they lead. You may be surprised where they end up, and this may give you a clue to who you really are and what it is you really want.
In many cases you will find you just need to tweak the goal slightly for it to be properly aligned with your inner values. Time spent day dreaming to find out what those tweaks should be is not time wasted, but time properly invested. If nothing exciting comes out of this, then you probably have completely the wrong goal, so look for another one that will excite you.
Now your goal is properly aligned, start to imagine how life will be when you have achieved that goal. How does that make you feel? This time you should feel the power. You have now filled your tank with the right fuel, your motivation, and the engine is ready to respond.
If you have tried manifesting and using the Law of Attraction in the past and been disappointed by the lack of results, build your motivation in the way I have suggested here. You will be blown away by the results! Even if you find the Law of Attraction works for you, still use this technique to amplify your motivation and you will find it works even better.
Get motivated, and there is nothing in this world you cannot achieve!
