I thought I'd make a topic about it, as I truly believe it is worth it.
The cosmos (universe, whatever) doesn't know the difference between what you "Want" and what you "Don't Want". It just gives you what you think about most. If you're wondering what I mean by this:
The most successful people in the world understood this law, and used it to their advantage. Keep in mind being successful doesn't necesarily mean just having money, although it is often apart of it. Read the reviews and the Wiki on it and what they say about Deliberate Intent and being Joyful throughout your life to get what you want. In the very simplest form I can describe it in is this:
The more time you spend in a positive vibration (such as feeling happy or joyful) the more the cosmos will work toward giving you more of that, such as things or events in your life that make you happier.
However: If you instead focus mostly on what you don't want instead of what you do want, you'll get more of what you don't want and life will seem miserble.
I know this because I've experienced it first hand. I've seen so many examples in my own life and in others around me. It's all in the mindset, it really is.
People often call things "Coincidences" when they don't understand why something has happened when in fact there is some deeper logic, or force, if you will.
It is the Law of Attraction, like attracts like. Positive vibrations (happiness, joy, excitement etc) attract more of the same and will make you feel even better. Negative vibrations (guilt, sadness, sorrow etc) attract more of the same and will make you feel even worse.
I cannot stress more of how much importance this following quote from the Wiki contains, it is the secret to a successful life:
"Many modern proponents say that the Law of Attraction has roots in Quantum Physicscitation needed. It should be noted, however, that no reputable scientist or publication ever supported the alleged scientific credentials of this theory. According to proponents of this law, thoughts have an energy that attracts like energy. In order to control this energy, proponents state that people must practice four things: 
Know what one desires and ask the universe for it. (The "universe" is mentioned broadly, stating that it can be anything the individual envisions it to be, from God to an unknown source of energy.)
Focus one's thought upon the thing desired with great feeling such as enthusiasm or gratitude.
Feel and behave as if the object of one's desire is already acquired.
Be open to receiving it.
Thinking of what one does not have, they say, manifests itself in not having, while if one abides by these principles, and avoids "negative" thoughts, the Universe will manifest a person's desires."
The part about "no reputable scientist or publication ever supported the alleged scientific credentials of this theory." is absolutely wrong. See for yourself:
The awareness of the Law of Attraction is truly life altering, whether you're aware of it or not, it is always in effect. If you think you "Can't Have" something you want, you're absolutely right. If you absolutely believe you *Already* have it, you will receive. I highly recommend you watch the DVD's mentioned here (Secret, What The Bleep - Down the Rabbit Hole) and read the books (The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent, and any others you can find on the subject) and just be open to what they have to say. Try finding them at your local library or bookstore, Amazon works great too.
As some might point out: "If there really is a Law of Attraction, why is there so much poverty, illness and death?" Because peole focus on scarcity and not on abundance. They focus on these negative things, and put all their energy into them, which only creates more of it. That is my opinion, anyway. You have been armed with knowledge, use it well.
Please feel free to discuss the topic, it will be interesting to watch.
Live and learn.
