How the Law of Attraction Limits You

By now everyone has heard or is familiar with the law of attraction. When we desire to have something, we have been taught to focus on just that to watch it come into formation. It is true that everything you desire to achieve and have in life will be yours.

“Well what in the heck happened to my red bike with the silver bell?!”
