Although most people see a goldmine when hear that they can be, do, and have whatever they want just by thinking about it, most don't understand that the Law of Attraction is much more complicated and involved than just simply "thinking" about what they want in order to get it (I'll go into that a little more in a minute). Also, they may think about what they want, but what are they dwelling on for the rest of the day? The bill that just came in and what's going to happen if they don't pay it? How they can't get any sleep because of their neighbors loud music?
While nothing can be absolutely proved when it comes to the Law of Attraction, popular theory suggests that everything that goes on in your mind causes a vibration, and the bigger the vibration, the faster whatever you are attracting will come to you (be it something you wanted, or something you did not want). Empty thoughts that aren't associated with any kind of emotion or personal feelings don't cause much of a vibration, and aren't significant enough to override all of the negative things we are exposed to in this world--which inevitably cause you to have negative thoughts, even if they are thoughts that are completely void of emotion/feeling, they're enough to cancel out the empty thoughts of the things you DO want.
In order to make the Law of Attraction work for you, it's best to set aside a portion (more than once a day; perhaps upon waking up, and before bed) of your day to relax, and "think" about what you want. By "think", I mean fully emmerse yourself in the situation you want to be in, and picture it in the PRESENT-tense... do not picture yourself in the future in that situation, picture yourself having what you want--NOW. That is an important thing that many people overlook.
So to conclude this post, the Law of Attraction may not be the "Goldmine" that people think of it as when they are first exposed to the idea. It's not as easy as just thinking about what you want and then going on with your day. There must be a significant amount of "vibration" coming from those thoughts, and that happens when you visualize and get your emotions/feelings wrapped up in your thoughts.
