Last year, I researched extensively on the power of thought so that I pinpoint the main factors that influence the Law of Attraction. I then discovered 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’ll quickly attract poverty in your life. And, if you constantly think about making mistakes, you’ll make several mistakes.
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, and you accompany these thoughts with fearful feelings, you’ll quickly attract what you fear.
Feelings help attract what you want because they determine your actions. For instance, you’ll work enthusiastically if you feel motivated, and you’ll work lazily if you feel discouraged.
Many 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 feel rich.
For this reason, if you want your thoughts to attract your desires, ensure that they match your feelings. The Law of Attraction won’t work if you 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
Jaggi Vasudev teaches 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 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).
If you want the Law of Attraction to work for you, ensure that you continuously focus your thoughts on your desires, and make sure that your thoughts and feelings are in alignment. I am not an expert in the Law of Attraction, but I realized that I’ve always attracted the things I don’t want because I often think about them. Sometimes, I might try to think about prosperity, but I then get back to thinking about lack.
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.

Four Major Reasons Why Biblical Stories Are Myths
Despite being born in a Christian family, I’ve always doubted if Biblical stories actually happened. When I questioned the validity of these stories, I was told to avoid questioning God’s word. I was advised to believe in the stories because they were written by Holy Men.
Despite the advice, I continued questioning Biblical stories. I then realized these stories are myths when I compared them with ancient myths. In this article, I will share with you four factors that make Biblical stories myths.
Here are they
Adam is found in both the Biblical creation story and the Sumerian creation myth. A man who builds an ark to protect himself from the floods (Noah) is also mentioned in the Sumerian creation myth.
Besides this, many ancient myths mention a miraculous birth that occurred after a Higher Power impregnated a human-being (The birth of Jesus).
2.Bible Stories, Just Like Myths, Are Unrealistic
Just like myths, Biblical stories are highly fictitious. They don’t make sense, and they’re some of the most unrealistic stories man has ever read. In the Bible, we read about ‘a chariot with horses of fire’ lifting Elijah to heaven. We also read about a whale swallowing Jonah, Eve talking to a snake, and Moses crossing the Red Sea on foot. I am 100% sure Christians could have classified these stories as myths if they were narrated by ancient Africans.
3. Both Myths and Biblical Stories Are Metaphoric
We are often advised to not read Biblical stories literally because, just like myths, they are metaphoric. In other words, these stories never occurred, but they represent fundamental truths about the world around us. For instance, it’s believed Jonah’s story symbolized how The Creator uses creation to fulfill his divine plan. On the other hand, it’s believed the Greek story about a Roman God eating his children and vomiting them symbolized how things are always destroyed and created again.
4.There is no Evidence of Biblical Accounts
Christians claim myths are not true stories because there is no evidence of their occurrence. However, they ignore the fact that there is nothing that proves Biblical stories are true stories. A
Brian Baker, who was once a pastor, also realized the lack of evidence for Biblical stories. In his book, Nonsense from the Bible, he wrote:
‘“The Bible is a collection of stories and myths based on hearsay transmitted from generation to generation and which were recorded by many different authors during a period spanning possibly 1,600 or more years. The ‘evidence’ then is only to be found in the Bible – no historical scientific or authenticated archaeological evidence exists. If you check the internet for such evidence you will discover many websites by Christian ministries – all present the evidence only from the Bible. Most so-called archaeological evidence is based on assumption rather than text (Brian Baker, Nonsense From the Bible).”
That being said, it’s reasonable to argue that Biblical stories are myths. However, even though they are myths, I firmly believe there are some fundamental truths about life, and our relationship with The Creator we can learn from them. For this reason, I occasionally take some time to read these stories to discover their deeper meaning.

Is Righteousness Necessary?
Righteousness is mainly defined as, ‘living a life that delights The Creator.’ It also refers to any behavior that aligns with the conventional principles of uprightness, virtue, and morality. Muslims and Christians strongly believe that God rewards and protects the righteous. For this reason, some of them strive to be righteous because they believe that being righteous guarantees blessings and prevents bad things from happening.
However, according to reality, bad things happen to anyone regardless of whether they are righteous or not. Nothing proves that the righteous are privileged or immune to bad occurrences. Just like wicked folks, the righteous are also found in catastrophic accidents, terrorist attacks, and many other bad incidences.
The universe seems to not care about righteousness because it treats the righteous and unrighteous similarly. For as Henri Frankfort observed: ‘A man who has been righteous throughout may yet be dealt with the powers who govern existence as though he were the blackest offender.’ (Henri Frankfort: The Intellectual Adventure of Ancient Man.’)
For this reason, the belief that God protects the righteous from bad occurrences is delusional. This belief might make you stop believing in God when bad things happen to you despite being righteous all your life. The only good thing about this belief is that it’s psychologically beneficial. It makes righteous folks less worried because they know their behavior assures God’s protection.
By the way, I am a realist. I look at life as it is and I don’t console myself with irrational belief systems. I only believe in things after proving their validity. Therefore, I embrace righteousness not because God protects and blesses the righteous, but because of the several benefits of righteousness I’ve experienced.
I’ve noticed that righteousness eliminates negative energy since it discourages negative feelings such as jealousy, hatred, and anger. Besides this, righteousness makes people trust you, and it makes life meaningful. It also enables you to be at peace with everybody and results in a good reputation that can help you attract wonderful opportunities. Many people will be willing to give you leadership responsibilities when you are righteous because they believe your behavior is reliable.
Therefore, righteousness is necessary because of these, and many other
However, it seems God is fair because he treats the righteous and unrighteous equally. He designed the universe to ensure that all individuals experience bad and good things regardless of their way of life. He blesses and rewards both the righteous and unrighteous.
That being said, realize that righteousness is necessary, but don’t be righteous because you want to be rewarded or protected for your righteous way of life. But be righteous because of its real benefits.
THE END. Thank you so so much for reading.
