    Okay, I guess I have a little story to share with you guys.
    I wanted to open up a small project for the longest time! For 2 and a half months I was procrastinating about it and didn't want to start it. A few friends of mine asked me whats wrong with it, and found out that I never wrote anything down on the paper, it was all in my head. So 3 nights ago when I wrote it down, is the same night I took action.

    The next morning I spent $682 for the coder

    That same day I got $100 back fro SEARS
    That same day I went on PayPal to find out $120 left there
    Next day I went to my restaurant where I eat, and got a deal to change the menu (graphic design)
    Today I wake up, a part of my taxes started to come and got $62 back


    ... Comon... Pharreeel?

    Call it karma or god's work, coincidence or the law of attraction but many people have talked about this before and many books have been written about this. It really does work. I've seen it work myself plenty of times. Once you get off your ass and start working you become more motivated, luck goes your way, you meet people and new opportunities open for you. It's like a snowball effect. You just need to keep it rolling. Work itself becomes way easier too.

    I think this is why in most cases, especially when it comes to IM most people will either earn fuck all or a ton of money. If somebody made it to $100/day by sheer effort they will make it to $1000.

    Obviously I'm talking about effort you put in. This does not apply to people who lack the knowledge and don't know where to start or how to. This applies to people who know what to do but don't bother trying.

    Just now got a person emailing me out of the blue, asking me for a flyer design. Another $150 right there. Last time I got a client through emails was 5 months ago, I usually get clients through private companies.

    Comon! Fo'real?

    idn this is how it usually works. the secret plus action causes lots of success. even ppl that say its just action fail to realise that action emphasizes on focusing on what your doing which the law of attraction says whatever you focus on you get more of good or bad.

    The secret doesn't exist.

    You experienced: Coincident + effort

    You attributing your success to the 'secret' = confirmation bias

    I call this "synchronicity", when you make a step in a certain direction in life, and all sorts of coincidences come to meet you aid you in your path.

    Why it happens is the big mystery. I'm making a film about this that hopefully will answer that question:

    looks good but DUDE, throw that music into the bin and get something better, not some psycho-thriller-ambient shit, it just doesn't fit ^^
    apart from that, i believe that synchronicity happens as soon as you do the steps in your life that you set out to do in your "life plan" before you chose to incarnate in that body :)

    and OP: congrats man, i can count the occurances of synchronicity in my life on barely 2 hands. so be glad, joy- and thankful that it happens instead of questioning it or abandoning it as a chain of very unlikely coincidences.

    Thanks for the advice guys. New version of the trailer up online now. "psycho-thriller-ambient shit" made me laugh.

    About only being able to count the synchronicity in your life on 2 hands - I believe that you can invite a lot more synchronicity into your life by creating change, and opening the door to synchronicity.

    For example, if you spend every day working in the same job, same building, same routine, then your possibility for synchronicity shuts down. But when you aim high and shake things up in your life synchronicity comes to meet you, as the OP demonstrated.

    Michaelangelo said "The problem with man is not that he aims too high and fails; it's that he aims too low and achieves."

    I would tend to agree.

    Yip i sure works Karma...This happened to my wife yesterday, she forgot to pit some money last week on the bonus ball and her number came up as she didn't pay she never won anything. However she said to herself that she was determined to win this weeks number (i think she did write it down) Guess what...... She won !!!! No one at her work can believe it. If you have not yet watched or read it then go out download it buy it , read 'the secret' today.
