One of the grave mistakes for most people in applying the law of attraction is not fully understanding the nature of attraction. the greater majority of people who learn of the law of attraction limit their understanding only to their immediate thoughts. While that is important its still a limited part of truly creating their reality.
They judge their thoughts as negative or positive and use that as an indicator to what they can attract. They continue on as they previously did with over working themselves and taking lots of scattered action hopping to manifest their desires by simply thinking positively about their desired goal.
This method fails to produce their desired outcome. action is needed in this physical realm to manifest the things we want. However, sometimes the only action that we do need is to develop a steady practice of creating the experience in our inner world.
How much action one would take would be in proportion to how strongly you connected with your vision. How much time did you spend creating your inner reality? As you strengthen your time mentally creating what you want, then much less physical action is required.
This requires practice. As you grow in discipline and focus the stronger your ability will become in manifesting your desires. the law of attraction by itself is powerful but an even deeper understanding of the creative process is needed to manifest faster and stronger results.
