I've personally spent hundreds of hours in counseling with trained pros, and I've researched the human psyche, and that has made me very humble indeed about making unwarranted claims on a subject that has eluded the understanding of the most brilliant minds on our planet over the past 7 millennia.

It's one thing to create a product like "Double Your Blog Traffic," because somebody might actually have a good method for doing that. But so many people resonate to the truth of LOA, and clever marketers are using that resonance to peddle a lot of junk.

I'm not going to mention names because my study of universal laws tells me that all thoughts and actions are supported. (If you don't believe me, take a look around planet earth. You'll find scumbags and saints thinking and acting with perfect freedom and without constraint.) Fortunately, Life (and the Law of Attraction) has a habit of disciplining those who fail to demonstrate personal integrity.

Even if you ARE rich, there is no way you can tell anyone else how to duplicate your success. There is an excellent reason for this;to find out why you can read the information on my course, "The Keys to Deliberate Creation." (No, you don't have to buy the course, I just don't want to say stuff I've already said much better elsewhere. Anyway, I'll post that information for free in a later article )

Do you know what the Law of Attraction (and other universal principles) is really all about?


That's right, happiness.If you are the sort of bloke who cannot be happy unless you have two Porsche's in your garage, then you'd better get to work writing some more convincing emails, and designing some more courses. A lot of us, however, don't find happiness by grubbing around for more and more THINGS.

The Law of Attraction is being twisted, just like the old "snake oil salesman." It is being twisted by marketers who have no clue who they really are, and are trying to convince you that "success" is narrowly defined by the accumulation of stuff. These guys are following the old paradigm that success is just MONEY. And it isn't, not by a long shot.

Do you know how a marketer can become an "expert" in the Law of Attraction (or anything)? He gets together with a bunch of his marketing buddies, and they all push each others' products. They all write testimonials for each other, or find their friends to do so.

I'm not saying that all marketers are like this. But I can tell you this: I get 30 or 40 emails every day from these fellows, and it seems to me that they are coming out the woodwork.

The first, and most important thing that happens when you begin to apply the Law of Attraction is that you clarify what you want, and tap into a desire. And that makes you feel HAPPY. And if you are smart enough to keep going with this desire, and not get sidetracked by the mundane belief that if you aren't rich yet you aren't successful, you will stay happy. And then you will create some wonderful things, and attract good things into your life.

Applying the Law of Attraction in the presence of the Law of Attraction Marketing crowd is a little bit like going to a party and finding a roomful of opinionated loudmouths. Your reasoned and nuanced points of view get lost in the babbling, shouting, boasting, and drinking. You think, "there must be something wrong with me! All of these people seem so DRIVEN. Wow, they must really have something going for them." Yes, but where are these people driving to? That's the question you have to ask yourself, because their goals may not have anything to do with your goals.

The Secret to Life is that we are all here to discover our own personal path to personal power.

That's the path that will lead to happiness. Will it lead to riches?
My answer to that is, WHO THE HELL CARES!! (I'm shouting now)

Your path to personal power is different from anyone else's.

I can tell you that for sure, because we are all unique. We all have a unique universal ID that the universe responds to. The key to life is to understand that you might get inspired by someone else, you may even resonate to their methods, but you cannot do things just like somebody else and expect to be successful. You MUST find your own personal resonance to happiness and success, whatever that is.

That's the beauty of life, people! In order to be happy you have to be inspired. And inspiration comes from your personal connection to source. Guru's, authority figures, Oprah, the latest rock star, Barak Obama, Donald Trump, Eckhart Tolle, or the latest Law of Attraction Marketer can tell you how they did it, and even inspire you. But until you understand that trying to duplicate another's success will lead to failure, you are going to feel stuck.

The Law of Vibration and the Law of Attraction reward those who are intensely focused and passionate on one thing, even if those people are not admirable. Like Bill Gates, for instance, IMHO. Every time I try to write web code for IE 6 and IE 7, I want to bop that guy on the head with a rubber chicken. But one thing about ol' Billy - he's focused very strongly and clearly on computer software, and the universe rewarded him for it.

Here's the funny (and wonderful) thing about a clear focus: if you want something, you already have a desire for that thing. And desire, my friends, is the fuel that makes the engine go. It's the "energy" in the energy drink.
The clearer your focus, the stronger is your desire. And "desire" is nothing more than connection to your own creative energy. That is the most powerful, vibrant, inspirational energy in the universe. It is, essentially, a personal connection to your higher self, and to the forces that created the universe and keep it in balance. The key to success, in other words, is finding what lights you up, and then doing it. And the clearer you are about what it is you want, the better you will feel.

Will you be successful? I don't know! Success has a lot of other things connected to it - like your definition of what success IS. In the United States, popular culture tells us that success is Porsches and big houses and a fat bank account. But this is a crass and mundane inversion of something profound and wonderful, something that is intimately connected to the very essence of who you are. Such a crude definition of success will likely activate all of your self-limiting beliefs about failure, and money, and a lot more besides. But I can guarantee you one thing: when you find your personal desire, you will feel fantastic. And there's nothing better than that. It's the foundation for a truly successful life, even if you don't get to be a billionaire like Bill Gates. Or even a big-time self-promoting marketer...
