Expectations and the Law of Attraction

Question submitted via Formspring:
“How can I use the Law of Attraction to remove negativity?  I believe with all my heart I’ll achieve my goals, but people around me are always telling me it will never happen.  Now I am over thinking it and afraid I’m making it harder for things to manifest.  What should I do?”

We talked recently about how to avoid disappointment and feel at peace, and a big part of that was managing your expectations.  We aren’t upset about how things are, but that things aren’t how we want them to be.

One of the hardest things to grasp about mastering the Law of Attraction

is being committed to what you want, without being attached to when or how it manifests.  You have to trust that the Universe knows what you need even better than you do.  Your job is to be clear on what you want, and take action towards creating it every single day.  Everything else is up to the Universe.

Opinions vary as to whether or not you should talk about what you are manifesting with other people or not, since the truth is most people won’t be able to see past your current state, and your goals will sound silly.  So, if you are the type of person that having people doubt you is a positive motivator to work harder to prove yourself, then by all means, tell the world.  However, if you are the type of person that having people doubt you will make you start doubting yourself, then don’t share it with anyone.  In the end, it’s not up to them anyway; it’s between you and the Universe.

So if you are having trouble with people in your life not believing your goals are going to manifest, the solution is simple: Stop talking to them about it!  Remember, it’s always easier for them to pull you down and laugh than to take responsibility for changing their own lives!

If you stay focused, and most importantly take action *every day*, your goals will manifest, it is inevitable.  And when they do, you won’t have to explain anything to anyone, they’ll see it for themselves!

    Thank you for the great articles. It is lovely and very practical advise. =)
    many people who applies LOA principles always caught themselves in doubting state of mind. It is important to set an expectation without being over detached of whether your goal can manifest, like what you said. “It is up to the universe”, just do your part and they will take care the rest. Have FAITH in yourself!

    I can so feel the frustration of the questioner. Not only stop talking to them (great suggestion), but stop talking about it yourself as well! I find that with my experience in an attraction-based Universe is that people (and events) are awesome mirrors of my own thinking. So if I’m getting triggered on beliefs around insecurities, such as when people find fault with me, my natural tendency is to get defensive and want to be right. But I’ve learned that they are only reflections teaching me that I have a belief system that “I’m not good enough” or similar. My work then is to reframe that belief into something more positive. And when I do, all of a sudden, people who trigger that in me disappear from my experience! It’s so cool how it works. Great response to the question!
