Have you ever thought why only a few get to be rich and famous? What did they do differently to be successful? Many celebrities have credited the Law of Attraction for their success. They have endorsed that the Law of Attraction techniques helped them reach where they are now.
Oprah, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Kanye West, Jim Carrey, Will Smith, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Steve Harvey; the list goes on. Let us see what these highly successful people have to say…
“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
It’s virtually impossible to ignore Oprah when you are writing about the Law of Attraction success stories. She has talked extensively about how the law helped her succeed. In her interview with Larry King, she reveals how the Law of Attraction helped land her dream role of Sophie in the movie ‘The Color Purple’ and how this laid the foundation of her successful career in show biz.
Oprah promoted the documentary movie, ‘The Secret’, in her show. The movie focusses on how the Law of Attraction helped many people get what they wanted. It is presented as a series of interviews. The recent revival of the concept can be attributed to Oprah. Her shows dedicated to the movie skyrocketed its viewership and boosted the sales of the book of the same name.
Oprah has given numerous interviews over years about how you can transform your lives using the Law of Attraction techniques. She has also promoted the Law of Attraction authors like Eckhart Tolle.
“Positive affirmations cause the subconscious mind to attract success and improve your life”
“Music is my life. The fame is inside of me. I am going to make a number one record with number one hits. And it’s not yet; it’s a lie. You’re saying a lie, over and over again. And then one day, the lie is true.”
She was just a struggling artist with big dreams. Now she is one of the most famous and wealthy pop stars in the world. She made this possible by focussing on what she wanted to become rather than where she was.
Lady Gaga used the Law of Attraction techniques of visualization, affirmations, and mantras to transform her life. She used specific words to trick her brain into thinking that she is already famous. “It’s sort of like a mantra. You repeat it to yourself every day,” she says.
“I believe you can speak things into existence.”
“A wise man once told me that luck isn’t some mystical energy that dances around the universe randomly bestowing people with satisfaction and joy, you create your own luck.”
Jay Z attributes the Law of Attraction techniques to his meteoric rise from not-so-pleasant early days to success and fame of today. He thinks that blaming others for your poor situation will get you nowhere. He firmly believes in creating your own destiny. He started by trusting in his own talent. He believed that the talent is there and used it to achieve what he wanted.
“Making music is art. It doesn’t change who you are as a person. It doesn’t mean you’re entitled or you’re above the law. You still treat people as human beings. It doesn’t change the laws of the universe. Life has a balance and for every action, there is a reaction. So, if you put negative energy in, negative energy comes back to you. You have to live your life within the laws of the universe and I haven’t lost sight of that.” Jay Z
“I am a production of me. I thought I was the best rapper in the world. I sat around and thought about it, and then became Kanye West.”
“I always felt like I could do anything. That’s the main thing people are controlled by! Thoughts- their perception of themselves! They’re slowed down by their perception of themselves. If you’re taught you can’t do anything, you won’t do anything. I was taught I could do everything. And I’m Kanye West at age 36.”
Love him or hate him; you can’t ignore him. That is Kanye West for you. The successful rapper was not born that way. He owes the spectacular spike in his fortune to his self-belief. He says that you need to be your own biggest fan. If you want others to root for you, you first need to root for yourself. To make your dreams come true, you need to focus on what you want to be and not on your present predicament. Kanye credits his unbelievable success story to visualization and unflinching belief.
“As far as I can tell, it’s just about letting the universe know what you want and then working towards it while letting go of how it comes to pass.”
“Total believer. I believe in manifestation. I believe in putting a rocket of desire out in the universe. You get it when you believe you have it. People still sit around and go “When it’s gonna come, when it’s gonna come” And that’s the wrong way. You’re facing away from it. You have to go, “It’s here, it’s here, it’s here”.”
“So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it.”
One of the best comedy actors, Jim Carrey is an avid advocate of the power of the Law of Attraction. He has openly said that he owes the law his rags to riches rise in fortune.
In an interview with Oprah, Jim Carrey elaborates on how he used intention and visualization to become a millionaire first and then launch a successful career in the film industry.
“I believe that I can create whatever I want to create. If I can put my head on it right, study it, learn the patterns, and — it’s hard to put into words, it’s real metaphysical, esoteric nonsense, but I feel very strongly that we are who we choose to be.”
“Our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, our ideas are physical in the Universe. That if we dream something, if we picture something, it adds a physical thrust towards realization that we can put into the universe.”
Will Smith, the iconic Hollywood actor has declared candidly that he owes his enormous success to the Law of Attraction techniques. He points out self-belief as the key ingredient to reach where you want to.
Unlike many others, Will Smith uses the law knowingly and makes use of every opportunity to spread the message. He has repeatedly said that success is right there for everyone; all they need to do is believe in it. He reiterates that you just need to decide what you want; the Universe will take care of the rest.
“I am going to be the number-one box-office star in all of Hollywood. What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true.”
“When I was very young I visualized myself being and having what it was I wanted. Mentally I never had any doubts about it. The mind is really so incredible. Before I won my first Mr. Universe title, I walked around the tournament like I owned it. The title was already mine. I had won it so many times in my mind that there was no doubt I would win it. Then when I moved on to the movies, the same thing. I visualized myself being a famous actor and earning big money. I could feel and taste success. I just knew it would all happen.”
Successful in diverse fields from bodybuilding to acting and politics, Arnold Schwarzenegger says that he owes it all to vision, belief, focus, and visualization.
“Like attracts like. You have to understand: you are a magnet. Whatever you are, that’s what you draw to you. If you’re negative, you’re going to draw negativity. You positive? You draw positive. You’re a kind person? Most people are kind to you…If you see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand. This is so true.”
“[The Secret] is the most powerful book outside of the Bible that I have read in my life.”
A self-confessed fan of the Law of Attraction, Steve Harvey has actively promoted the concept in his talk show. Like Oprah, he too contributed immensely to the success of the movie ‘The Secret’ and subsequently the book of the same title.
Steve Harvey has stated time and again how the law of attraction techniques motivate him to achieve things in life. According to him, once you understand the process of asking, believing and receiving, along with practicing visualization and gratitude, your success is guaranteed.
