Your job in this step is to pray for guidance to clear all that blocks you from believing in your greatness. Then allow the Universe to help guide you to whatever assignments you need to aid in the healing process. Show up for the assignments and trust that the more you clean your thoughts and energy, the more positive experiences you will attract into your life.
14) Anecdotal Evidence: Evidence that the LOA is an effective way of attaining goals is anecdotal, non-scientific and self-reported. This fact does not prove it doesn’t exist. But closely scrutinize whether you want to invest time, money and energy into something that is ineffective and potentially harmful. People are much more likely to publish successes than failures. We also practice apophenia (the belief that there is meaning behind random data) when we focus on coincidences without regard to the much greater number of times that we do not experience coincidences. How many times did you think of that person and they didn’t call you? Of the two thousand people I thought of today, only two actually called. That’s not a great percentage – 0.1%. But if I think of it in terms of the people that called we get a different story. I thought of Bert and he called me – that’s 100%!
Here's what Alexander Graham Bell had to say on the matter: "Can it be said that when you think of that great gap, that there are not many forms of vibrations that may give us results as wonderful as, or even more wonderful than, the wireless waves? It seems to me that in this gap lie the vibrations which we have assumed to be given off by our brain and nerve cells when we think. But then, again, they may be higher up in the scale beyond the vibrations that produce the ultra violet rays ."
Sometimes your subconscious thoughts and beliefs affect the outcome of your efforts to manifest your desires. If, for example, you want more money but you believe that money is the root of all evil, you’ll find it hard to manifesting more money. If you want a new job but think, “I don’t deserve a better job,'” you’ll have a difficult time getting hired. And if you look at a loving couple and think, “I still don’t have a loving relationship,” you’ll perpetuate the lack of a mate. You need to become aware of and change these negative thoughts and beliefs if you want to bring your dreams into reality.
Make a list of ten things you like about yourself. It can be anything-- your hair, your mathematical ability, your taste in music. The ten things can be significant or trivial. It doesn't matter, so long as you truly believe them. Once the list is in place, you should think about each of those things, and acknowledge that there is legitimate worth in having each one of those qualities.
I was thinking the same. I've never heard a "professional" man of his age, speaking like such a catty little 15 year old girl. If you read all the comments you can see how he speaks down to/mocks every person who disagrees with him, while sarcastically throwing little digs in wherever he can. I came to this article looking for evidence to discredit the LOA. I just can't seem to take anything he wrote seriously because of his unprofessionalism. Very narrsassitic.

I’m not plugged into mainstream media and music. I don’t know about pop stars, pop music, and all of that. Occasionally I’II hear something, because I have a nine-year-old daughter, but mostly I’m uninterested. Also because I don’t care for hyper-sexualised music videos of young, half-naked women writhing about with pink lipgloss giving me deer eyes.
"Scientific experiments using a placebo effect for health reasons have shown that if you believe something will make you feel better. Rven if it is a sugar pill and not a true medication, it will cause you to think you feel better and then you do. ... Every time you think of a negative thought, you need three positives ones to negate it. If you focus all your positive energy on a positive outcome, it will happen. You can see this with prayer, as people focus on sending a positive message up in prayer for a positive outcome," Estes explains.
