There are a lot of books available on the Law of Attraction, and many of them are really good. They all explain the Law of Attraction from different perspectives, including the scientific perspective.

This is important because, in order to make this “law” work in your life, you need to understand that it is a scientific principle, like gravity. If you properly apply this principle in your life, it will help you get what you want.

I don’t believe, though, that understanding this principle is enough. You have to actually apply the principle in your life. In other words, you have to take action.

This is how Jack Canfield’s Key To Living The Law of Attraction will help you. Instead of just another book explaining how the law of attraction, this book offers you exercises to help you determine what it is you really want out of life. (These principles can be summed up in the following three words, which is your action plan: clarity, purpose, and action.)

You start by doing the exercises that helps you determine what your purpose in life is. If you really want to understand why you’re here, and what you were meant to do, you have to do these exercises. This proccess also includes determining what your passions are. This can be anything from wanting to help children to helping any other specific group in society.

Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll use this to formulate your purpose statement. Then you define your dreams and goals. You’ll look at seven key areas in your life: personal, relationships, health and body, careers and education, recreation, financial, and contribution (Your contribution has to do with what you ultimately want to do with your life.)

The next steps you take are to write your goals list, as well as affirmations that will help you reinforce what you want and get this information grounded in your subconscious. Finally, there are other exercises like meditation and prayer that are meant to reinforce your vision and keep you on track to attain it.

Although I really enjoyed Key To Living and found the exercises very helpful, one thing I realized is that if you have issues in your life you need to deal with, like anger and resentment, then I would skip this book for now. This stems from the fact  that you have to eliminate any kind of obstacles like these first, or they will get in the way of you actually attaining your dreams.

The reasoning here is that you won’t focus on what it is you really want. You also won’t believe that you can get it. Since the real key here is what you believe, as well as taking responsibility for your actions, the solution is to learn to do these things first before trying to determine what you really want. Instead, go back and read Canfield’s The Success Principles, because this will help you far more with dealing with these issues first.

If, however, you’re finally ready to realize your dreams and get what you want out of life, this book will be perfect for you. It gets straight to the point, at only 144 pages, and most of those are exercises, so there’s very little reading at all except to tell you what you need to do and what your next step is. Highly recommended for those who are ready to live their dreams.
