The Law of Attraction: "The Hungry Don't Get Fed"

Aug 18, 2007
Ever heard that saying? It's as old as dirt, and I have long since forgotten who said it (anybody out there know? Please email me or leave a comment).

"The hungry don't get fed" is an ancient principle that is based on the Law of Attraction. It's another way of saying that a person who is desperate for something will NOT get it-but the person who already has plenty will get more. Or as I like to say, "the fat get fed, NOT the hungry."

This principle explains why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. If fact, it explains A LOT about the world we live in. Think about it; a single guy who is desperate for a date will have a very tough time getting one. He literally cannot "attract" a date because his desperation just pushes them away.

Likewise, which candidate is more likely to get a job: the one who appears calm and secure or the one who gives off a needy and desperate vibe? I think I know who I'd hire...

Anyway... it's easy to see that desperation is not a state of mind that attracts success. So which state of mind will guarantee the Law of Attraction is working for you? It can be summed up in one word: "expectation."

Expect More = Get More

Why is it so difficult for many people to just expect good things? I have personally coached people who knew exactly what they wanted but couldn't bring themselves to say it-even to their own life coach! Maybe it's because many of us have been "brainwashed" into believing that it's better to go through life never expecting anything than to risk disappointment. Personally, I wouldn't recommend living by that philosophy.

To get in the flow of life and attract better things to you, there is one simple deal-breaker: You must expect better things. Want to have a successful business? Expect it. Attract your perfect partner? Expect that the person is on the way.

Of course, what we are really talking about here is faith. Faith in yourself, in others and in the world in general. Faith is the state of positive expectation that allows good things to come to you, just as fear and desperation always repel your true desires.

The real "secret" to using the Law of Attraction is to not be "hungry" for your desires, simply expect and assume that they are on the way. Have faith and confidently assert your intentions and expectations, as if it were already a done-deal. Because when you're in a state of positive expectation, they are.

Set your sites on the things you really want, then use the unstoppable power of faith and expectation to attract them!
