Too often many claim that the Law of Attraction because it didn't produce the desired results. Observation indicates that Law of Attraction does work, yet often what inhibit the desired success is the blocks that get in the way and then we stop just short of the goal.
In the book Acre of Diamonds by Russell Conwell mentions this very thing about those that walk away from success when they already have it, totally unaware or taking their focus off of what they have and putting it somewhere else.
In this video with Eric Plantenburg explains that sometimes one of the greatest block from success is the fear of success itself. He shares his experience of going after a goal and failing! Then he share the success story that comes out of going after his goal anyway and the determination that ignites him to persevere, knowing that he will succeed the next time.
Fear of success is often a common block in the successful manifestations of Law of Attraction. Success means acknowledging many things such as the sacrifices that may come from achieving that success! Friendships may change or end completely. Careers may change. Environments may change. Many situations will change because that is part of creating the new momentum towards the desired outcome.
Another reason fear of success may arise is out of the limiting realization of true self worth. Knowing the potential of being a success can create anxiety of being perceived as being superior to others and possibly criticized for that success. Successful individuals learn to turn their back away from the negative responses of others and keep focused anyway.
If the little critic is actually inside the individual, then they replace that with other affirmation and mental programming that rebuilds their confidence. They may do this through self hypnosis or simply writing down all of the successes they may have already achieved that prove that the little critic is incorrect it its judgement.
Regardless of the blocks, once overcome, the success is always worth the effort!
