There is a lot of “life advice” on the internet. People have all kinds of stories regarding how to achieve your desires. But, the process I’m going to discuss is not any law of attraction hack. I’m not going to tell you to write it down, think about it, visualize, meditate, or affirm it over and over.
You can get anything you want in life without doing all those things too. How? It’s simple; by taking action. Stop chilling. Don’t waste your time. Instead, get up and do something. You are not going to get what you want just by “wanting it.”
You must show that you want it by taking action. How badly do you want it? If you are drowning in water, for example, what’s the only thing you want at that moment? It’s to get your head out of the water and breathe. You want some air. It’s the only thing you want. You don’t care about anything or anyone at that moment.
If you truly want something in life, you must focus on it so intensely that there is no other option but to get it. And by focus, I mean do anything to get it.
Newton’s first law of motion states, “An object at rest stays at rest, and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.” So, if you don’t have an external force (in our case; action), nothing will change. You will remain in the same state that you were in before.
Stop playing video games, watching TV or Netflix, sleeping till noon, and hanging out with people that aren’t motivating you. Instead, get your life back on track. Make a plan.
Even for the law of attraction to work, you need to take action. If you want to manifest $1 million, you can’t just imagine that you have the money, and then take a nap. You must show the universe that you really want it by taking action. You must be doing something to work towards achieving your desires.
Do you want a job? Get qualified, obtain the skills, and apply for jobs. Do you want a good relationship? Stop hanging out with shitty people. Focus on improving your life and learn to love yourself. Do you want to have good health? Stop eating garbage. Eat healthily and start exercising. It’s that simple. Whatever it is that you want, do the action that is going to get you there.
Don’t fall for hacks and shortcuts. There is no free lunch in life. You have to put in the effort and work for what you want. You must start taking action. Do something every day that is going to take you closer to the thing you want. So, another important thing is persistence. Don’t quit. If you continue doing the right thing, you will eventually get what you want. The universe has no choice but to give it to you.
It is a guarantee that hard work and persistence will give you the results you want. But, you should know that you are working hard for the right thing. The results might not show in a short time. Don’t worry. Just keep going. You will only see the results if you have the patience to stick to your action with persistence.
For every desire you have, there is an action associated with it. What is that action? Find it out. What is going to take you closer to your desire? Do that thing and do it every day. As James Clear said in Atomic Habits, “If you get one percent better each day for one year, you’ll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you’re done.”
So that’s it. To get what you want, start taking action. Do what is necessary to achieve it. Do it and do it consistently. Never give up. Keep going. Eventually, you will get it.
