I just started reading "Dynamic Laws of Prosperity" by Catherine Ponder. It's supposed to be one of the best. :) - by Marcus
What book(s) do you recommend Shaun? - by Houston
Napoleon Hill outlines everything one needs to know on the subject. Earl Nightengale and Napoleon Hill are the two people that put the law of attraction on the map.

"The Secret" and all the other contemporary books got most of their content from the two men named above.

"Think And Grow Rich" is a book that can be read over and over and you'll still pick up points and ideas you don't remember reading before.

It's been an excellent resource to help me control rather than be controlled by my thoughts and emotions. - by Billiam
Also, besides all of the above, Maxwell Maltz "Psyco-Cybernetics."

Those books and every resource I've ever used has shaped my thinking and behavior, shan. Some of my life dreams have been achieved with the help of the insights I gained from these resources. I also believe that insight - illuminating experiences from reading/resource material - often comes from unexpected places.

For example, I didn't find "The Secret" illuminating in this regard of attraction BUT my studies in bagua and aikido have given me great insight into attraction and repulsion, blending and confronting. and important inter personal dynamics to understand.

The best to you.

I agree there are universal principles that govern the law of abundance. But whwn that door opens for us, we must be willing to do the work.

When we do...and only then, the result? Abundance.

Many people embrace the lottery mentality, meaning, they expect the universe to open the door and do the work. As a few studies have shown, a sad dismal story follows these lottery winners.

Probably because they are unprepared and unable to handle the result of winning.

Bottom line: the power of abundance is very real and its available to all but there is one rule. The universe opens the doors, you do the work. When you ask the universe to do the work you frustrate the plan - and are usually left frustrated, angry and depressed. - by GlennB
"What is the work and how do I do it?" is the question. That's where success is created or not.

People wanting to be successful become frustrated when from every direction they get varied, often conflicting, directions as to what constitutes what's known as "the law of attraction" as well as: how and how not to sell, promote, market, network, and prospect.

When people grapple with are cliches then cliches turned into everyone's communication of what they define as the substance embedded in the cliche.

When burdened with challenges (work, relationships, financial) we can become vulnerable and highly susceptible to ideas or products that promise quick and simple fixes - the proverbial blue pill. As we have discovered, there is no easy way around a challenge, but there is a way to break through it.

Books like The Secret and others like it fall short of helping people learn what needs to be done in the here and now.

Many "Gurus" suggest that if you simply focus your thoughts, attention, and energy on having what you want, it will "magically manifest".

Successful people live in the here and now. If they spend any time at all visiting their castle in the sky, it is to learn what needs to be done so they can take the necessary action to turn their dreams into reality. The key word is action. Successful people focus on taking action and creating, others focus on escaping and fantasizing. - by GlennB
"Successful people focus on taking action and creating, others focus on escaping and fantasizing." -- GlennB

That's the difference! I've learned that from myself then in watching others. It's always the same.

People have to believe their actions can produce what they want. With
