    Hey guys,

    Lately, I've been reading, watching, minding everything about Law of attraction, secret to achieve success and that kind of stuff. Result : I'm disconcerted...

    I've read three books, watched "The secret movie", this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62DqsD2s5V8, too many times, it makes me confused.

    The problem is that most of them talk about setting goals, writing your dreams on papers, carrying it with you all day long and most important "becoming what you think about", it's the most complicated part.

    They say, if you want to succeed you need desire + faith/belief. OK, Let's say I've got desire, but... Where does faith come from ? I mean I have not achieved anything great in life (IM) and I have a low self-esteem as well, is that a problem ? Of course, but :

    Is it necessary to think all day long "I'm gonna be rich" ?! I think about money but all this stuff about writing down your dreams is confusing...

    ETC ETC ETC... Here's what I wanna ask you :

    - How should one control his thoughts ?! In which way ?! Simply thinking "I'm gonna be rich" or just thinking positive ?

    - Since I haven't a huge faith in myself, can some self-confidence be gained through the action ?

    - What do you think for success is necessary ? All this weird stuff, or just action ? How did you make it ?

    From what I've read/watched I think now that I can't reach my goals if I don't follow these instructions, really made me confused, I'd appreciate a few words about what you need to achieve success, controling your thoughts etc...

    Thanks, xrumering.

    Stop reading & take action, books won't help you getting the work done.

    "A lot of people in this world search endlessly for some complex magical formula to understand why some people are successful and others are not. But it really just boils down to this concept of productivity; that you are going to apply the most amount of effort to the best of your abilities in the given time that you have"

    If you want to read more, check out Bright-Sided: How Positive Thinking Is Undermining America by Barbara Ehrenreich, which thoroughly debunks the law of attraction and other visualization pseudoscience and exposes the charlatan self-help gurus getting rich selling this nonsense.

    Just like 2011nfl said, Everyone having their own key on their self. Some people find that quickly and some people find that little bit late. You have to do lots of experiment to find the key which is opt for your life to succeed. How do you know which is the right key(talent) you have without applying all those you have? If you're lucky then your first key may unlock the door to enter in the room of success. If you're unlucky, it'll take some more time but you'll definitely unlock with a one you have.

    I think you should stop thinking about thinking and stop thinking about getting rich or stuff. I'd say write down your goals, a specific plan of action, then just apply the plan.

    While getting into bricks ( you will ) just read about this problem, fix it and move on. I;d say you should read these kind of get rich books in your spare time. Focus on your business first. Stop with the positive thinking scam, trust me, it won't get you anywhere.

    Just try many things till something works out and it's easier from there. Good luck!

    Thanks for the replies, I just got confused, I now think that LOA and stuff like that is BS! at least they put it in the wrong way. LOA - I think it means to be determined to your goal and keep going through anything.

    Here's the real secret, it summarizes all success advice into something so simple a child could understand.

    "What you expect is what you get"

    Winners expect to win.
    Losers expect hardship.
