Through the years of studying the law of attraction, I’ve become painfully aware of the things that I do to sabotage my success and of course, I watch these same behaviors in my clients.

By becoming aware of the behaviors that keep you from mastering the art of intentional creation, you can then make a decision to do something about it.

Here are 5 more ways to fail as a conscious creator:

1 – Resign Yourself to Not Having What You Want instead of Detaching and SurRendering to the Divine Order.

One of the most difficult concepts of conscious creation is learning how to use the law of detachment. As students, we know it is absolutely critical to detach. We know this so we make bold attempts to “let it go.” We force our mouths to say, “I’m okay if I don’t get this.” Inside, however, we feel anxious and disconnected from those words; or occasionally instead of detaching, we give up which leaves us feeling deflated, discouraged, depressed and hopeless.

We want to detach but a part of us is afraid that if we let it go, it won’t happen.

A client recently realized that she didn’t want to accept herself exactly as she was; she didn’t want to accept that she was already beautiful. She didn’t want to let go of the belief that she was ‘fat and ugly’ because she was afraid that if she accepted and loved herself now, she’d become complacent and lazy and not do anything to improve herself. Instead of loving what is and detaching, she was rejecting her reality (and herself) and thus, repelling the very beauty that she was working so hard to fulfill.

Many law of attraction students refuse to trust in the big Universe and therefore detachment is simply never going to be the powerful trim-tab that it could be in their intentional creation briefcase. However, refusing to detach is better than giving up.

There are three options: One, you are detached and allowing your good. Two, you are attached and resisting your good. Three, you are resigned and no longer attracting your good.

I always know when a client has ‘given up’ instead of surrendered to the Divine Order and Divine Timing. The swing in their step is gone and their eyes show the sadness that is in their hearts.

Resignation is not detachment! An unsuccessful attempt at applying the law of detachment always feels negative while successful detachment feels confident, certain, and like a peace-filled poncho of hopeful anticipation.

Let me draw some distinctions. You will FEEL the truth as to whether or not you are detached and allowing your desire, attached and repelling it or resigned and no longer attracting it.

Resigned and No Longer Attracting:

* resigned

* apathetic

* sad

* hopeless

* doubtful

* anxious

* lackadaisical

* disappointed

* disillusioned

Attached and Repelling:

* anxious

* fearful

* angry

* impatient

* resentful

* hesitant

* distrustful

* insecure

* abandoned

Detached and Allowing:

* connected

* energetic

* cheerful

* hopeful

* certain

* eager

* inspired to action

* satisfied

* starry-eyed

Detach and allow; trust and let go but never give up!

2 – Focus on the Pie in the Sky ALL the time and Ignore the Meatloaf in Front of You.

If you want to fall down a lot, try to run before you’ve learned to walk. If you want to stumble terribly, put the cart before the horse. If you want to make a fool of yourself, run for President before you’ve ever served a day in any lesser office.

If you are focused on attracting a million dollars – GREAT! You can absolutely manifest this type of wealth. I’m not ever going to suggest that you not shoot for the stars. In fact, I encourage you to imagine yourself living in lavish prosperity.

However, if you currently live hand to mouth, then it’s very likely that your everyday experience will prevent you from leaping that Grand Canyon in a single bound.

In addition to visualizing ultimate success, visualize what you need right now. It’s important to take your ‘three-foot’ tosses as seriously as your ‘grand leaps.’

Accept where you are as perfect and be willing to manifest incrementally. Soon, you’ll be able to manifest bigger and bigger dreams because you’ve built your confidence and your imagination will let in the truth that you are an abundant being.

Imagine an athlete that’s unwilling to compete winning the Olympics! Now, imagine a conscious creator who’s unwilling to work, suddenly becoming the CEO of a fortune 100.

Visualize and attract both.the optimal success AND the current needs.

3 – Re-tell Your Story to Anyone that Will Listen.

Refuse to Give up Your Past and Deny its Perfection.

Great storytellers always gather crowds. We love a delicious ‘overcoming the odds’ story of triumph; we find juicy gossip irresistible and have a sincere desire to connect with others who have traveled similar paths.

If you’re going to re-tell your story over and over again, then you will want to be aware of your negative emotions as you recount your past. If you can tell your story for the sake of enjoyment, learning, and fun then go ahead, be a storyteller.

However, if you tell “your story” to elicit sympathy or fury from yourself of your audience, then know you are in a cycle of re-living and re-creating more of the same.

Your past is perfect – claim this as you tell your story and your creations will continue to be delicious.

4 – Do it Alone. Don’t find Like-Minded, Successful Creators to Play With.

Why do we want to be lone rangers? Why must we insist on overcoming the odds all by ourselves?

By surrounding ourselves with successful people of like minds, we draw into our experience the energy of belief, success, prosperity, joy and freedom.

Success is not defined by obtaining everything you want but by enjoying and appreciating everything you have while patiently persisting in the pursuit of everything you want.

When you choose to play with others who are joyful, for example, you invite more joy into your life. Make a decision to reach out and learn from other law of attraction students; join law of attraction discussion groups; take classes or hire a coach.

If you want to quicken your path towards fulfillment, reach out and selectively surround yourself with those who are already doing it! Almost by default, you will begin to become what you’ve surrounded yourself by. be it negative or positive.

5 – Be a Lazy Creator.

I am amazed at how often I get an email or a call from a fellow law of attraction student that wants to prove the law of attraction works by sitting on the couch.

In other words, they want to attract what they want without having to do anything physically to get up and achieve and receive it.

Is it possible to have your ideal mate knock on your door? Sure, it has happened. Ladies have married their milkman.

However, that’s just crazy, risky and lazy! Don’t wait for your lottery to hit, get out there and make it happen. In addition to using the power of your mind to intentionally create what you want, take at least ONE action every day towards your goals.

Don’t wait for success; go claim it with whatever ‘hard’ work you have to for now. When you become aware that you are working ‘harder’ than you’d like then create it easier.

Persistent visualization along with persistent and consistent inspired action will bring forth incredible manifestations and success.
