Does the law of attraction work?

Everyone I know who watched the popular movie The Secret was impressed by it, though opinions about it differ. Many feel that the movie is controversial and that the people in it who speak about their experience with manifestation and abundance are simply lucky.

Is that really so?

I have a different point of view. The law of attraction is not about some super, magical power that turns every dream and visualization into reality. On the contrary, it can be explained from a scientific point of view. For example:

Our brilliant brain is constantly inundated by approximately 2,000,000 bits of information per second that come in through our five senses but our nervous system is designed to process only a portion of it. It routes the incoming information into manageable sizes and processes only about 134 bits!

So most of the information our brain takes in is simply not processed, and the information we do process are the issues we put our focus on. It is here that we realize the importance of choice. When we choose to focus on one thing we also choose to delete unimaginable amounts of information that do not belong in our relatively small circle of focus.

So you attract into your life what you put your focus on by:
- focusing on it
- acting as if it's already in your life
- not letting failures discourage you
- learning through mistakes
- taking risks rather than playing it safe

I'd tell you more, but it's a secret! Watch the trailer of The Secret or buy THE BOOK to find out more about how the law of attraction works. :)
