Guest Post: Law of Attraction in 3 Words
Pete Hughes’ succinct take on deliberate creation may not appeal to everyone, but his simple style (and pithy humor) may offer inspiration to some:
It is hard to surf the Internet these days without stumbling across something about ‘manifestation’ or ‘The Law of Attraction’. Since the release of the film The Secret, hundreds, if not thousands of would-be gurus have sprung up, most eager to help you part with your money in return for finally providing you with an explanation of this ‘secret’ which will transform your life once and for all.
Well, to save you all the trouble of searching, I will in this article sum up the Law of Attraction, completely for free, in just THREE WORDS, which you have probably heard many times before, since long before the phrases ‘manifestation’ and ‘Law of Attraction’ were widely used.
Before I reveal the three words, I will start with a little summary of manifestation and the Law of Attraction as proposed by many ‘enlightened’ teachers.
- Decide clearly what it is you want.
- Write it down or stick pictures on a vision board or tattoo it to the back of your eyelids or something.
- Clearly visualise having that thing, preferably engaging all the 5 senses, on a daily basis.
- Continue doing this until you feel right now how you would feel if you already had that thing.
- Once you get the feeling, then your desire will manifest in your life.
But here is the big Catch 22:-
If you can get yourself to feel right now how you would feel if you had that thing in your life, then you will no longer desire that thing, because the only reason that we desire anything is because we think that it will bring us a feeling that is better than the feeling we currently find ourselves feeling.
So, according to the Law of Attraction, in order to manifest things that will make us feel great, we have to first get ourselves to feel great.
Hmmm, is this not just an incredibly long-winded and elaborate way of saying what many well-meaning but gruff uncles and P.E. teachers have been saying for years?
“Cheer up, Grumpy!”
That’s it! The Law of Attraction summed up in just three words. It is yours absolutely free. I do not want you to send me 9 monthly instalments of $35. I do not want you to spend $350 so that I can tell you these three words during a weekend at an expensive resort.
Here they are again:-
“Cheer up, Grumpy!”

What do you think? Is that simple? Does this three word instruction work for you? Would you sum it up differently?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
