In 2008 Raymond Holliwell wrote ‘Working With the Law’ later turned into an excellent audio programme by Bob Proctor and Mary Morrissey giving their interpretation and teaching about the book and these key Laws of the Universe.
You will probably have heard of the Law of Attraction, about which there are many books, notably Rhonda Byrne’s ‘The Secret’.
But you’ll probably have also heard – or even found – that the ‘Law of Attraction’ doesn’t work!
Well – it doesn’t.
It’s like the Laws of Physics.
You cannot just apply one of the Laws of Physics.
The Laws of Physics only ‘work’ when they are all put together.
You see, the Law of Attraction (LoA) is only the third Law – there are ten others.
And to make it work you and I have to apply them all.
In his book Holliwell devotes a chapter to each of them
- The Law of Thinking
- The Law of Supply
- The Law of Attraction
- The Law of Receiving
- The Law of Increase
- The Law of Compensation
- The Law of Non-Resistance
- The Law of Forgiveness
- The Law of Sacrifice
- The Law of Obedience
- The Law of Success
Only when we put all these together and apply them all diligently can we achieve the outcomes promised by books like ‘The Secret’.
Only then can we achieve the outcome promised by the great ‘on stage’ speakers like Tony Robbins.
Only then does it all ‘make sense’ and lead to the abundance you and I are seeking.
But doesn’t it look like a lot of work?
Won’t it take a lot of study and learning?
Doesn’t it mean we’re going to have find other ways of doing things, doing things differently?
Yes to all.
Surely there’s an easier way?
Some people, many people, think so – because they have an alternative.
It’s called the Law of Averages.
“Keep on doing what you’re doing, measure it, and eventually, according to the LoA, you’ll get the results you want”.
“If you make 100 phone calls and get 5 positive results, all you have to do is keep making the calls” – that’s the sort of thing that millions of people are told every year – especially if they get involved with Network Marketing.
“It’s just a numbers game”
Trouble is that the Law of Averages is a fake law.
It doesn’t exist.
There is no mathematical or any other basis for it.
It’s just a phenomenon of measurement.
Now there’s nothing wrong with measuring what we are doing, but it can be a little like doing our tax return – we sometimes interpret the numbers to give us the result we want.
“Lies, damned lies and statistics”
The trouble with statistics and the Law of Averages is that they come up with things, measures, ‘averages’ that are actually and sometimes physically impossible.
“The average family has 2.4 children”
I have yet to discover what 0.4 of a child is!
But that’s what the Law of Averages says – so it must be true.
But most people, and especially people engaged in ‘old school’ sales, believe that it works and that it’s true.
The thing it that it’s used as a crutch.
It’s used to make people feel better when they don’t get the results they want – “don’t worry, the Law of Averages says you’re bound to get some good results soon, just keep putting in the activity”.
And it’s used to help people feel safer – “flying is the safest form of travel – only one accident in so many million miles flown etc”.
Instead of relying on this fake law we need to do something else.
We need to apply the real Laws.
But there’s a catch.
It means change – and people hate change, or at least are not very keen on it, and would much rather avoid it.
Even to the extent of giving up on what they really want.
The Law of averages is not a ‘Law’ – it’s just a measuring device.
If what you’re doing isn’t giving you enough positive results then change what you’re doing.
Don’t wait for the results to just ‘turn up’ because the Law of Averages says they will.
Not going to happen!
You have to use the measurements of the results you get to find a way to change what you’re doing.
Test other ways of doing things – see if you get better results.
Work out other ways of doing things according to the real Laws of the Universe – all of them – the Law of Attraction won’t do it by itself.
Forget the Law of Averages – it will never make anything better happen.
It will never make anything change
Only you can do that
