8 Serious Law of Attraction Mistakes That You Must Avoid

When it comes to the law of attraction, positive thinking, visualization, and all that good stuff only make up one part of the entire picture.

Another huge aspect of successful manifestation is to avoid the behaviors, actions, and thoughts that prevent the universe from bringing you your wishes.

The biggest manifestation mistakes are often seemingly insignificant actions and thoughts that are easily overlooked but actually have a devastating effect on your manifestations.

The good news is that the most important of these mistakes can be easily corrected with just a little bit of effort.

In this post, I will share with you the most important law of attraction mistakes to avoid. Simply by avoiding them, you put yourself way ahead of many others using the law of attraction.

1.) Being Desperate

With the law of attraction, it’s pretty simple. You can want but you must never need.

When you need something badly, you make it really hard to attract it.  If you’re desperate for it, then all you’ll do is push it away.

The universe interprets the emotion of need as lack and therefore can only react by bringing more lack into your life.

Ideally, the best frame of mind to take when trying to manifest something is to want it but at the same time, be perfectly alright with not having it.

We are only human of course so there will be times when you feel as if you really need what you ask the universe for.

If you catch yourself feeling a little desperate from time to time, that’s alright.

So long as you are aware of this mistake and make a conscious effort to avoid it then that’s enough.

Note: If you’re trying to attract something that you actually really need, such as a job when you’re unemployed, then being proactive and taking inspired action would be the best way to put yourself in the right frame of mind.

2.) Doubting yourself

Self-doubt is one of the biggest hindrances towards successful manifestation.

While it’s normal to have some doubt in the law of attraction especially if you’re new to this stuff, you should try to avoid doubting yourself as much as possible.

This means that you shouldn’t doubt the actions and steps you take to manifest.

Realize there’s no need to be perfect when performing law of attraction techniques as well.

Instead, you’d want to be as confident as possible when attempting to manifest, believing that no matter what you do, you’ll get what you want.

It doesn’t matter what it is that you’re trying to attract, believe in yourself and your efforts with as much confidence as you can muster, and I guarantee you’ll get it.

Sadly, confidence and self-belief aren’t discussed often enough among law of attraction circles. In my experience, these are highly important traits to have and can really make a huge difference in the results you get.

3.) Taking the law of attraction too seriously

If you find yourself getting overzealous with using the law of attraction, to the point where you feel frustrated, then it’s time to take a step back and relax a little.

Make an effort to relax and detach a little.

Relaxation and detachment balance the feelings of desire inside of you, which is always present any time you consciously use the law of attraction.

It prevents this desire from becoming desperation or frustration.

Not only that, taking a laid back relaxed attitude to the law of attraction will keep negative emotions such as anxiety and doubt at bay.

Make it a point to stay relaxed and detached and everything will flow much more smoothly. You’ll be more likely to attract what you want at a much faster rate.

4.) Not Knowing What you Want

When you’re unsure about what you want, you send out conflicting signals to the universe that makes it very hard to manifest anything at all.

If this is something you struggle with, take some time to ask yourself what it is that you really want.

Find out if what you’re asking the universe for is something that you really want.

When you know that you want something with absolute certainty, you’re pretty much bound to get it.

When you possess an unshakable conviction in what you want, the universe along with all of your being will do everything to find ways to turn your desires into reality.

Avoid ambiguity as much as possible and state your wishes to the universe in the simplest and most straightforward manner.

Lack of clarity regarding desires and wishes is one of the most common reasons people fail to attract what they want, so avoid it as much as you can.

5.) Not Believing that it’s possible

Can you really manifest anything at all? This is a question many of my readers often ask me.

The answer is yes, you absolutely can but there’s a catch. You can only manifest things that you can see yourself having.

You need to believe that it’s possible. And the more strongly you believe that in its possibility, the more likely you’re going to get it.

That’s just how the law of attraction works, you may trick the world but end of the day it’s what you believe that matters the most.

Cultivate a self-image where you can see yourself having all that you want and that’ll become your reality.

6.) Trying to Manifest Too many things at once

One mistake people often make with the law of attraction is to attempt to manifest too many different things at once.

This will be doable eventually, but if you haven’t had many successful experiences with the law of attraction, it’s best to focus on manifesting one goal at a time (Or a few at most).

End of the day, the act of manifestation is to reshape your reality according to your desires through the power of the universe.

And such an act takes quite a fair bit of focus and mental energy, therefore it makes sense that focusing on just a few goals at a time would yield much better results.

If you’ve been having trouble manifesting what you want, try focusing on just one goal at a time, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how helpful it can be.

7.) Thinking Too Much About Your Goal

The best results often come when you’re able to keep yourself distracted and your thoughts away from your wish and just forget about it.

The universe responds very well when you’re able to simply “state your wishes and forget”.

If you think too much about your goal, you’ll be more likely to think thoughts that interfere with the workings of the universe.

Think of your goal/wish when it’s necessary such as when you’re performing law of attraction techniques but otherwise try your best to keep your mind occupied and distracted.

8.) Not taking action

Contrary to common belief, taking action is actually a huge part of the law of attraction.

Many people have this misconception that the law of attraction is just about sitting back and receiving. While this is definitely a part of the law of attraction, there’s more to it.

Real proper application of the law of attraction involves every aspect of how you live your life, from your thoughts to your words and actions.

Not only will taking action move you closer to your goals, it’ll also put you in a far better state of mind for manifestation and help you avoid law of attraction setbacks.

By taking action, you’ll keep feelings of stagnation and anxiety at bay which will allow you to manifest far more efficiently.

Instead of sitting back and waiting, work alongside the universe to make your desires a reality. I promise you that it’s worth it.


So there you have it, these are the most important mistakes that you must avoid when using the law of attraction. A lot of them seem insignificant but over time, they can really have a negative effect on what you manifest.

The good news is that with these mistakes, as long as you’re aware of them, it’s relatively easy to avoid them. All you need is a little mindfulness and conscious effort and you’re good to go.
