The path to getting what you want for some people is through hopelessness. Many of the teachers of the law of attraction who made money off of you lied to you. They lied because they tried to convince you that there way was the only way to make the LOA work in your favor. The way the LOA works in your favor in through your truth.
My truth (I don't know what your truth is) about the LOA is that sometimes the law of attraction works for me through hopelessness. There are times when I am hopeless of ever getting what I want. The moment I accept my hopelessness rather than resisting it, shortly thereafter I get what I want or something even better.
