I believe in the Law of Attraction.
HOWEVER — I agree with you that you cannot just wish and pray and hope for luck and privilege to land in your lap. You need to have intent, you need to take action.
The problem with the Law of Attraction that I have encountered is approach. Nothing is just handed to you — it takes work. With thoughts, feelings, and actions, consciousness can create reality, but not from a vacuum or luck or coincidence. There has to be intent. It takes action.
The concept of the Law is a really good one, but applying it takes effort. It also is applicable to EVERYONE, and plays no favorites.
