Reasons You’re Not Attracting What You Desire

If you’re the type that is interested in success motivation or personal development, you’ve probably heard about the law of attraction. Okay! Since the launch of the book and movie, The Secret, [you must have seen the book in bookstores] many people have been using this law may be you to attract what you desire.

The law of attraction is a philosophy…a philosophy suggesting that positive vibes [thoughts] bring positive results into a person’s life, while negative [vibes] thoughts bring negative outcomes. Please, thoughts vibrate, Thoughts are vibes [vibrations]. In the realm of the spirits, thoughts, and sounds are not that distinguished apart. A thought speaks [makes sounds]. Bible confirmed that severally. God and satan respond to your thoughts and bring them to pass. Why? Your thoughts talk into their ears.

Thought vibrates and this is based on the belief that thoughts are a form of energy and that positive energy attracts success in all areas of life, including health, finances, and relationships. Please follow me avidly.

The law of attraction certainly does work. I have written a few articles on the law of attraction in time past, but one thing is sure: there may be times when you feel like you are doing everything according to the law. The fact is this universal law works, but I assure you that there are multitudes who have tapped into this and use it daily but you’re still not getting the results you would like.

This is the goal of this write-up.

If you are not getting the [results] you want, or you feel like the law of attraction is not working for you, read through my humble list of possibilities for why you may not be attracting what you want.

8 Things to Consider if You’re Not Attracting What You Desire

  1. You Say One Thing But Perform Contrary Actions

Maybe you’re saying one thing and doing something that doesn’t jive with your saying/desires.

For example, if you desire a new career but don’t take any action toward attaining that career, you are in conflict. You can affirm that you desire to change jobs, but if all you do is desire it and don’t act upon your dreams, not much will happen.

Desire, belief, and corresponding actions equal manifestation of your desires. Also, if you want something, but your thoughts don’t line up with that desire, the law of attraction will probably not work for you. Your thoughts must line up with your desires.

  1. You Have Lots of Doubt  

Perhaps it is possible that somewhere inside you, you doubt that the law of attraction is effective.

Maybe you’ve heard other people put it down or dismiss it and part of you questions the validity of the success claims. Take a few minutes and gauge your thoughts associated with the law of attraction.

If you think for a moment that you hold doubt, let it go and make a firm decision to believe in the law of attraction wholeheartedly.

  1. All Negative Thoughts Are Dominating

If the mindset you manifest is primarily negative, the law of attraction may not work for you. Let me illustrate, if you want an expensive car, but then feel guilty about spending so much money on a car when there are plenty of people in poverty, your guilty feelings may limit the law of attraction’s influence.

  1. You Are Being Lazy

The law of attraction is a beautiful asset, but only if you do your part.

If you just vomit out your desires to the universe and sit on your butt all day doing nothing, chances are the law of attraction will not work for you. So, you’re lazy.

Keep in mind that it’s not mystery, miracle, or magic. There is a principle, a formula associated with the law of attraction and if you don’t understand it or neglect part of it, you may not get the success you desire badly.

If you desire something important to you, you must ask for it, believe that it is yours, take the necessary actions, and expect to receive it. If you skip the part of actually believing it is possible by having positive thoughts and actions, the law of attraction might not work for you.

  1. You’re Holding onto The Past

If all you’re doing is thinking about your past, you are setting yourself up for disappointment.

Sure, sometimes it’s alright to remember your past, but if you’re stuck there, you may find yourself stuck for a long.

The past is over, so do your best to let it go. Forgive yourself for any mistakes that you have made and learn from them. Live in the present moment and look expectantly for your bright future.

  1. Being Surrounded by Negativity

Do you live in an environment that is filled with negative people – quite negative? Are you surrounded by naysayers and people who continually complain and emit negative vibes and energies? If so, you could be allowing the negativity to impact you more than you imagine.

You can remain positive even in a negative atmosphere and allow the law of attraction to work for you. But if you are not careful, the negatives and their vibrations can affect you.

You may not notice it, but that negative energy may suck your positive energy right out of you. It is a great asset to surround yourself with positive people that emit positive energy as often as you can.

The saying that you turn into who you hang around has truth in it. Hang around with others who believe in the power of the law of attraction if you want to reap the law of attraction benefits.

  1. Living in Ungratefulness

If you live in a state of ungratefulness for what you have, you are emitting negative energy into your universe. This will repel positive things from heading your way. Please know it today, “ungratefulness repels positivity”. If you are grumbling and complaining about your rotten life and then expect to receive a bunch of blessings, chances are you will not.

Offer gratitude for what you have right now and for what will manifest in your life later at any given moment. Let the words “thank you,” flow through you abundantly and every time.

Be thankful to God for your breath, health, shelter, food, water, clothing, the blue sky, beautiful flowers, and so on. Let gratitude be a huge part of your life. Okay?

  1. Feelings of Unworthiness

The feeling of worthlessness and unworthiness can jeopardize the fruition of the law of attraction. If you carry the air of powerful feelings of unworthiness, the law of attraction might not work for you.

Sometimes it sounds humble or easy to feel like you might not deserve this or that, but the truth of the matter is that you are worthy in and of yourself. You don’t have to do anything to be worthy of love and goodness.

The universe wants goodness to flow to every soul and to believe in that is very helpful and your right. Let go of any past mistakes or negative things people have said about you. You are not who others say you are – you are a precious creation and you are worthy of love, blessings, and any other thing that you desire – good or bad. When feelings of unworthiness pop up, immediately begin confessing positive affirmations about yourself and visualize yourself as blessed and happy. You are worthy! Do you hear that?


Are You Blocking the Law of Attraction?

The above is simply some of the reasons why the law of attraction may not be working for anyone. Once these issues have been addressed, you should witness more desires manifesting in life. Forget not to be patient and grateful for what you already have. Walk around with smiles on your face and live in a state of expectation.

You never know when your expectations will arrive, but believe that they surely will.
