I have always researched on how I can make my thoughts attract what I want because many Great thinkers believe in the Law of Attraction. Also, I have read several books on the subject of thought so that I pinpoint the factors that influence the power of our thoughts to attract our desires.
It then dawned on me that the ability of our thoughts to attract our innermost desires is influenced by three main factors.
The more you think about something, the quicker you attract it. For instance, if you regularly think about the lack of money, you will quickly attract poverty in your life. And, if you constantly think about making mistakes, you will often find yourself making mistakes.
Repeatedly thinking about something attracts it because these thoughts become deeply rooted in your mind which then makes you act in accordance with the thoughts.
Besides this, the repetition of a particular thought causes belief. The belief develops into a deep conviction which then attracts what you constantly think about.
Therefore, if you want to bring something into your life, ensure that you constantly think about it.
‘Whatever we plant in our minds and nourish with repetition will one day become our reality’ – Earl Nightingale: American Radio Speaker and Author (1921 -1989)
The Law of Attraction is greatly influenced by the feelings you accompany your thoughts with. If you have fearful thoughts about something, and you accompany these thoughts with fearful feelings, you will quickly attract what you fear.
Feelings help attract what you want because they determine your actions. For instance, if you feel motivated, you will work enthusiastically, and if you feel discouraged, you will act lazily.
Spiritual leaders and successful people understand the power of feelings. For instance, Rhonda Byrne, the author of The Secret, advises that thinking about riches is not enough to attract riches. She teaches that these thoughts will only attract riches only if we also feel rich.
Therefore, if you want your thoughts to attract your desires, ensure that they match with your feelings. The Law of Attraction won’t work if you try to think positively while feeling sad or anxious at the same time.
‘You gotta feel like a boss before you become a boss.’ – Rick Ross: American Rapper and Entrepreneur
- Your Ability to Focus
Spiritual teachers such as Jaggi Vasudev, teach that you can attract what you want if you concentrate all your thoughts on your desires. He claims that most of us never attract what we want because our thoughts waver. We think about prosperity in one moment, and we think about scarcity and lack in the next moment. This type of thinking ensures we attract mixed results: we attract both what we want and what we don’t want.
*People who think many kinds of thoughts must expect to receive a confused manifestation in their lives. If a gardener plants a thousand kinds of seeds, he will get a thousand types of plants – Ernest Holmes (Creative Mind).
Therefore, if you want the Law of Attraction to work for you, ensure that you continuously focus your thoughts on your desires, and also make sure that your thoughts and feelings are in alignment. I am not an expert in the Law of Attraction, but I just realized that I have always attracted the things I don’t want in my life because I often think about them. Sometimes, I might try to think about prosperity, but I then get back to thinking about what I don’t want.
Therefore, the Law of Attraction has worked for me but on the negative side. However, this year, I’m trying my best to embrace positive thoughts and feelings so that I attract a good life. I know I will win because I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.

What Hypnosis Teaches Us about Doubt and Affirmations
According to the Collins English Dictionary, hypnosis is a state in which a person seems to be asleep but can still see, hear, or respond to things said to him/her. Health professionals use hypnosis to heal patients since the mind fully responds to anything suggested to it during hypnosis.
There’s a famous story of a boy who was cured of Congenital Ichthyosis through hypnosis. The physician cured him by hypnotizing him, and telling him that his skin was healing.
Such accounts have led to the realization that the mind fully responds to what it’s told during hypnosis because hypnosis relaxes the mind hence preventing it from doubting anything suggested to it.
It‘s hard to heal a fully conscious person through suggestions because the person will doubt everything that a physician tells him/her. Therefore, hypnosis mostly works because it eliminates doubt by putting the mind in a relaxed state. In this state, the mind cannot question whether whatever the therapist is suggesting to it is possible or not; it just acts on it.
The mind is connected to the Universal Mind/God/Source Energy, and for this reason, it has healing abilities, and it can bring into physical existence whatever you constantly suggest to it. However, hypnosis proves that the mind only responds to our suggestions in the absence of doubt. It will be almost impossible for you to cure yourself of a certain disease if you regularly affirm that you are healing yet you highly doubt your affirmations.
When affirming (suggesting to the mind), you must believe that what you are affirming is true. For example, if you wake up in the morning and affirm that you are powerful, you must believe that you are a powerful being. You must never doubt the affirmations by questioning whether they are true or false. Just affirm, believe, and let your mind do its job.
I used to wonder why my affirmations never worked. Luckily, hypnosis made me realize that they never worked because I doubted them. For example, when I woke up in the morning and said, ‘I am the greatest blogger alive,’ I always doubted this statement immediately by asking myself if this was really true hence preventing my mind from acting on my affirmations.
Therefore, always know that whatever you suggest to your mind without doubting will come true. If you always say to yourself that you are too old, or you are a failure, without a doubt, the mind will create situations that will make you an old failure.
To sum up, hypnosis shows us that the mind often responds to our affirmations, and it can bring into reality whatever is suggested to it only when we don’t doubt. Therefore, we must replace our doubts with faith because only when we don’t doubt will our mind effectively tap into the universal mind and attract situations and things that will help us reach our desired state.
‘As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.’ – Jesus Christ, Christian ‘Savior.’

5 Powerful Benefits of Constantly Reminding Yourself That Anyone’s Death is Around the Corner
Many Great Thinkers reveal that the best way to enjoy every moment of your life is to remind yourself that you might die any-f*?king-time.
I used to think this advice was stupid until I lost my beloved best friend: Fred Jesse. Through his death, I realized that death is real and it can happen anytime. Fred didn’t know he will die. We had a drink the last time we met, and he was sure that we’ll meet again. It never occurred to both of us that his death was around the corner.
Fred died a few months later on a grizzly road accident. He was the first closest person I lost. When I heard the news of his death, it was hard to believe because I never thought that Fred might die anytime soon.
His death made me realize that no one knows when they will die because we can die at any moment.
Fred’s death made me to constantly think about my mortality, and I realized the following benefits of becoming aware that you, your friends or relatives might die at any moment.
- You Won’t Care about Other People’s Opinions
Will you care about other people’s thoughts if you know that you’ll be dead in a few weeks? I guess no. No matter how good or bad people think or talk about you, their opinions and thoughts won’t matter if you realize that you are going to die.
Furthermore, will you care about someone’s opinion about you if you realize that the person might die anytime soon? What if you worry about what a certain person thinks about you, and then s/he dies a week later. Will it be wrong to say that all your worry was time and energy wasted?
With this in mind, it is true that being aware of our impending deaths enables us to stop caring about people’s thoughts or opinions because they won’t matter when we die.
- You will Live in the Present Moment
Thinking about my death made me teach myself how to live in the present moment and stop worrying about a future which might never come. I realized that all I have is the present moment, and therefore, I must stop being anxious about an unguaranteed future. It also dawned on me that all of us could enjoy every moment if we realized that it might be the last.
‘Every moment is a once in a lifetime moment. And maybe it’s the last. Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock.’ – Jonas Salzebeger
- You will Ensure That You Maintain Good Relationships with Your Closest Friends and Relatives
Realizing that, you, your friends or relatives might die at any moment will force you to maintain a good relationship with them because you won’t want your loved ones to die with unsolved issues between you and them. For this reason, knowing that death is unpredictable will make you to always ensure that you are at peace with everyone you love.
We refuse to solve issues with our friends/relatives because we think they’ll live forever. We fail to realize that we might never get a chance to forgive them or ask them for forgiveness because death might grab any one of us anytime.
- You Will Quit Postponing
When you become death-conscious, you will quit postponing important things because you will realize that you might fail to live the next day to do these things.
You will stop postponing the day you’ll start traveling around the world, when you’ll send flowers to your parents, when you’ll build a business to sustain your kids when you die, when you’ll start doing what you love, when you’ll start saving money for your loved ones, and many other important things you always want to do but often postpone.
- You Will be Thankful
Death consciousness makes you thankful because you realize that life is precious and not everyone manages to live as long as you, your friends and relatives have lived.
When I think about death I always remember that most of my best friends are orphans. Therefore, I become thankful for the fact that my parents are still alive. Thinking about death also makes me thankful for the fact that my friends and sisters are alive because not everybody has all their family members/friends alive.
Do you remember the woman who lost her entire family in a car accident in 2016? I guess either all or some of your family members are alive. Therefore, stop fretting about trivial issues and be thankful you still have a chance to experience the physical universe with them. At least you have a shoulder to cry on. Some people don’t have.
We always think we are immortal and for this reason, we take our precious lives and those of our friends or relatives for granted. We never appreciate their presence because we think they’ll live forever. Besides this, we love worrying about the future without thinking that we might fail to exist in it because life is short and death is unpredictable.
We don’t realize that we only have one chance to experience the beauty of the physical universe, and that life is too short to hold grudges, to worry, to postpone, to hate, to care about people’s opinions, and to do what we hate.
‘When we realize the shortness of life, we begin to see the importance of making every moment count.’ – Dillion Burroughs: American Author.
