The Law of Attraction: Focus on Feedback!

Jun 21, 2008
The universe doesn't always just give you everything you want when you make pretty pictures in your head and say "thank you!" You, like most people, have probably already realized this. If it were this easy, we would all be millionaires. In fact, there would be so many millionaires, that being poor would become 'cool'... i.e. "Oh really, you're a millionaire? Yeah, I know lots of millionaires, but I decided to be poor... I like a challenge in my life!"

The universe is, however, always giving you opportunities to learn and grow. The question is "are you aware of these opportunities, and how are you responding to them?"

I borrowed this concept from Neuro Linguistic Programming. "There is no failure, only feedback!" More advanced students gradually work their way toward "There is only feedback!" Failure only exists because it is a concept we brought into being (some would say we did this through the law of attraction). Unless you have figured out some way that it is useful, you might as well let it go, and learn to view your ongoing experience in a constructive manner.

It is unfortunate, but much of what I have read and heard involving the law of attraction either doesn't emphasize (or completely ignores) the concept of feedback. The general description is that you just keep focusing on what you want, and then the universe will start answering you with an unending shower of stuff.

No matter what direction you take in your life, there will always be feedback. When you do something, and people react, or the environment changes, or your own point of view changes... this is feedback! Paying attention to it, and deciding how to alter your course based off it will determine whether you become a shocking success story, or just another self help junkie spouting empty wisdom.

When you try to learn something new, and it seems very difficult, this is feedback! It could mean that you just need to add a little more practice. It could mean you need to find a better instructor. It might mean that you aren't bringing the appropriate attitude into your learning experience. Or it might mean that it just isn't for you.

When you first begin to learn something new, repetition is incredibly important. Consistency of practice will lead to a powerful understanding of the material.
It is also important to consider the source of the teaching. Is it a book? Some things you can learn pretty easily from a book. Some things are nearly impossible to learn from a book. A qualified instructor can be invaluable assuming you have the time and resources.

It is important to always bring the best attitude that you can into any new learning. If you approach learning with "I'm no good at this!", "This sucks!", or "I just can't get it right!", then not only will you have a miserable learning experience, but you will never develop the level of performance that is possible with proper attitude. Work toward the attitude of "This is fun!", "This is getting easier and easier!", or just good old fashioned Zen emptiness.

When you are clever in your approach to learning, and you pay attention to feedback, you will be amazed at the depth of blessings the law of attraction can bring into your life!
