Do you ever feel that if you think something bad will happen, it definitely does? This is the law of attraction at work – positive thoughts attract positive outcomes, whereas negative thoughts attract negative outcomes. This simply means that if you want good things to happen to you, you should think positive to shun away the effects of negativity.
But that's not easy, you say. You may not find positive thinking easy, but it definitely is possible. Here's our prescription, in the form of ways to think positive, for purging negative thoughts, and increase your ability to attract the positive outcomes that you want.
Learn How to be Grateful
The first step to dealing with negativity and living a happy life is gratitude. Be grateful for what you have because there are so many others who are much worse off than you are. Look at the things in your life that are going well for you. Bills piling up? At least you sometimes manage to buy food when millions around the world go hungry. Your family isn't with you? At least you have friends who care about you.
If you can't immediately see a reason, force yourself to find one. Look around you. Maybe you have an elderly neighbor who finds it difficult to manage his daily chores? At least you are capable of getting your work done on your own. The mere fact that you are able to read this makes you automatically better than 60% of the world's population who has never seen the inside of a school. Remember that life can't be 100% perfect all the time. You just have to take the bad along with the good.
"Everything Happens for a Reason"
Thinking of each setback as a stepping stone to something better can make you feel better about the situation, and make you take steps towards the better alternative. If something you had set your heart on did not work out for you, it is possible that this could be because that thing was not good for you.
For example, let's say you have lost your job. Yes, it would feel like a disaster at the time. What will you do for food? How will you pay your bills? But maybe, just maybe, this could the best thing that could have happened to you. You can start devoting time to your hobbies, or start a small business on the side. Look at J.K. Rowling. A single mother who was living on welfare. All that spare time allowed her to accomplish something that she had been meaning to do for a very long time, but could never find the time for. The Harry Potter books are now the highest selling books of all time, and spawned mega hit movies, making Rowling a millionaire multiple times over. This is not an isolated story; if you look at most wealthy people, you will hear a similar story about their past.
Do not be so Hard on Yourself
The last step in trying to reduce negativity is to make things easy for yourself. Stop blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong. There's no point wondering about what you could have done better to improve the outcome – blaming yourself only makes you feel worse. What's happened has happened and cannot be undone – it's time to take steps to make things better now.
Learn to regain control of your life. Had a terrible breakup? Don't doubt your abilities to find someone else – after all you found someone the first time around, didn't you? You can do it again if you want to. You just have to put your mind to it, figure out what you need to get done and go ahead and do it.

What is the law of attraction?
The law of attraction has become popular through books such as The Law of Attraction (Esther and Jerry Hicks), The Secret (Rhonda Byrne) or Law of Attraction – Getting More of What You
Want and Less of What You Don't by Michael Losier. In some cases the law of attraction has been studied from the perspective of quantum physics as a field of energy and vibrations. In other cases it has been associated with metaphysics or the spiritual realm.
It is not necessary to understand quantum physics or practice a particular form of spirituality in order to make the law of attraction work in your life. A useful interpretation of the law of attraction is that it relates to the ways in which we draw experiences to us by our thinking, feeling and behaving. Our thoughts influence our moods, feelings, behavior and interaction with others. You may be extremely good at noticing whether you are sad, happy, irritable or restless. Yet you may not know how these feelings are connected to what you are thinking. So during this book you will be introduced to the tools and techniques that can be used to develop the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are more likely to produce positive experiences in your life.
You may already be able to detect the law of attraction in your life experiences. For example, do you tend to avoid people who complain a lot? Does negative thinking can cast a gloomy cloud in the home, or workplace? Have you experienced walking into a room and sensing the atmosphere within it? Perhaps you know someone who has a smile that lights up the room, or has a knack of making others feel welcome and appreciated.
A common interpretation of the law of attraction is that we create our own reality. For some people this can be taken to mean that the external world becomes less important than their own, selfcreated world. Taken to extremes this could lead to a selfcentered attitude whereby the only thing that matters is your own thoughts, feelings and behaviors. It can also lead to selfblame, such as the idea that you are attracting bad experiences to yourself. To counter such views, it is worthwhile considering that there are certain things in life that are out of our individual control such as stock market crashes, extreme weather conditions, life threatening illnesses or the death of loved ones.
Although we do not have direct control over these things, we do have some flexibility regarding how we interpret them. So while we do not literally create our own reality, we experience reality through the filter of our own life experiences and sensory abilities. One person might regard a stock market crash as a major economic disaster and start to worry about losing their job. Another person might regard the stock market crash as part of the economic cycle of ups and downs. Someone else might see the stock market crash as an opportunity to buy low cost stocks and shares and wait until the market improves and then sell them at a profit. Noticing that there are different ways of interpreting the same event it is possible to question which viewpoint is more likely to draw good experiences to us.
The law of attraction has also come under criticism on the basis that it produces the belief that we must take responsibility for everything that happens to us. So if you become sick this is because you have attracted it to you. However, it is important to take into account other factors that may come into play with major health issues and take the appropriate medical or clinical action to address them. Nonetheless, if you or someone you love is dealing with a major health issue then it will be beneficial to harness some of the tools and techniques presented in this book as a supplement to the conventional medical interventions that are being used. This book is not about uncovering psychological issues such as past family dynamics, relationships or traumatic experiences. If you are experiencing psychological disturbances due to trauma, past family or personal relationships or have an addiction of some kind, then you are advised to seek appropriate professional support from a qualified therapist, counselor or medical practitioner.
Another view of the law of attraction is that you can simply think positive thoughts and sit back and wait for your life to change for the better. While thinking positive thoughts is a great start, action is also needed to make changes in your life. Just sitting around and having a few positive thoughts is not going to produce dramatic changes in your life. Starting to practice using positive words and phrases is a building block to a better life provided that you start to take actions that support them. Even if you start with a few positive thoughts and actions these will soon gain momentum and before long positive thinking and life enhancing actions will become a much larger part of your daily experience.
Altering your mindset will enable you to be open to new possibilities and opportunities. You can then follow up these opportunities to make positive changes in your life. Supporting positive thinking by actions requires a commitment to making changes in your life. When I take on life coaching clients, for example, a commitment is required from the client to make changes in their life. Sometimes a client may want to move away from their current situation yet it soon becomes apparent that they do not have the commitment to make changes to their lives.
In such cases it is necessary to question the client to see how we can move forward. If the client is not ready to make changes and commit to them, it is better to suspend the coaching process until the necessary commitment to change is in place. Consequently having a commitment to practicing making changes to the ways in which you think, feel and behave is required to attract positive changes into your life.

Contributor: Greg Kuhn, author of How Quantum Physicists Build New Beliefs. The following is excerpted from this highly recommended, super practical law of attraction book. (Note from Mollie: I read it just recently and am currently putting its step-by-step method to the test. More on that later!)
"One early June Sunday afternoon, taking a lunch break from fixing some holes in the roof, I sat down on my back porch. Relaxing and eating a sandwich, I enjoyed my view of some woods that backed up pretty close to the house. Halfway through my roast beef, I noticed a cute little bunny peering from the shrubs about twelve feet away … I had a compelling thought that I'd like to pet the cute guy …
"Since I had the whole summer at my disposal, I decided to try an experiment. Could I coax this cute little bunny up onto my back porch? I knew that this rabbit would be very cautious, but I also knew I could probably tempt him if I kept offering him some delicious fare.
"Almost every day that summer I laid out a small carrot or other vegetable for the little bunny. And I moved his food a little closer to my porch every time–careful not to overdo it or move too fast, so as not to spook him and ruin the experiment … By early August I was excitedly laying the carrot very close to my back porch steps. When I finally moved the meal to the steps, themselves, I could hardly wait to see the bunny complete my goal.
"On August 22nd, at 3:30 p.m., that little guy finally got up on my back porch and claimed some cherry tomatoes for himself. it took him about three minutes to decide to climb all the way onto the porch, but by gosh, he was up there. I had achieved my goal–and my furry friend had feasted luxuriously all summer to help me do it …
"As proud of myself as I was, little did I know that I'd done something even more profound than train a wild animal. I had created a foundational model for how to unlock the law of attraction's greatest potential for influencing our material reality … Just as I did with my friend the bunny, I later learned how to lure my subconscious into believing new things that are aligned with some of my greatest desires in a wide array of areas."
And so can you.
