Success is no accident in this life.
Whether you like it or not, what you put into this world, you will get out. Yes, there are many factors that determine success, wealth, and health, but what if you could harness the energy of the universe for your life? If you want to attract those things in life like health and wealth, you need to understand “The Law of Attraction.”
Here is a short definition of this universal law:
The law of attraction is the attractive, magnetic power of the Universe that draws similar energies together. It manifests through the power of creation, everywhere and in many ways. Even the law of gravity is part of the law of attraction. This law attracts thoughts, ideas, people, situations, and circumstances.
The law of attraction manifests through your thoughts, by drawing to you thoughts and ideas of a similar kind, people who think like you, and also corresponding situations and circumstances. It is the law and power that brings together people of similar interests, who unite into various groups, such as political groups, sports teams, sports fans, fraternities, etc.
Think about this definition for a second.
It’s All About Energy
This law is all about energy — our energy plus the energy we want to attract in the universe. If you think of this energy as powerful as gravity, you will begin to understand the significance of this law. Manifesting what you want in this world begins with how you think because your thoughts are powerful. Your thoughts lead to your actions in this world.
While there have been many celebrity endorsements of the Law of Attraction, namely Oprah, Will Smith, Jay Z, and Kanye — there have been several skeptics as well. There are many who believe that the universe will continue to do what the universe does, whether or not we have a positive attitude or change our thinking.
Without the action behind our thinking, the law of attraction cannot work. We must not only believe, we must do. That being said, understanding how these energies work is vital to creating a life that is ready for wealth. That’s why these books below are such great starting points.

While this might be one of the more mainstream books on The Law of Attraction, it is still worth a quick read through.

Still confused about how you can apply the Law of Attraction in your life? You might want to start here with this book by Katherine Hurst that gives you step by step instructions on how to start manifesting more of what you want in this life. Reviews for this book are generally positive and it gets an overall rating of 3.79 stars on Goodreads.
Katherine Hurts has personally helped millions of her followers around the world learn more about the Law of Attraction and knows first-hand the kinds of questions people have.

Dr. Wayne Dyer is a leading author, speaker, and self-help guru that has helped many people take control of their lives and make changes that matter to them. In this, one of his cornerstone books on intention, he explores a variety of gurus, mentors, and teachers to create his own theories on intention. There are seven types of energy fields, or intention, or attraction that Dyer discusses: creativity, kindness, love, beauty, expansion, abundance, and receptivity.
This is a book that allows you to more fully explore how you can harness these energies for your life. The Power of Intention walks you through the barriers that you are still clinging to, those barriers that are literally blocking powerful energy from your life and existence. One of those energies or the power of intention responds to appreciation, as Dyer explains:
“Meditate on appreciation. Cherish the energy that you share with all living beings now and in the future, and even those who have lived before you. Feel the surge of that life force that allows you to think, sleep, move about, digest, and even meditate. The power of intention responds to your appreciation of it. The life force that’s in your body is key to what you desire.”
We’ve talked about this before, that to be wealthy, you have to have a wealth mindset. This is one of the classic Law of Attraction books (mentioned in the Secret movie) that has stuck around for generations because the principles never get old.
Here is a real reader quote:
This book has changed my life. It has inspired ideas and plans in me that I never thought existed. It changed the way I saw the world, and actually worked to draw me nearer to my dreams as a result of the way the world works. I recommend everyone who is inspired to do more in their lives to read this, as it is a life-changing book.
If you want to attract wealth into your life, this is a good book to read as a starting point and guideline. Yes, the wealth discussed in this book is all about money, but that doesn’t mean you cannot use these principles to attract all kind of riches into your life as well. A foundational read, one that shouldn’t be glossed over!

This little book (under 30 pages) was written anonymously in 1926 and still is one of the most popular manifestos around. This is the kind of book you’ll find passed from family member to family member, across generations. The truths revealed inside still ring true.
In less than one hour total reading time, you can begin to make your dreams come true. You’ll be inspired to start writing lists of what you want to accomplish and then taking those ‘ideas’ and making them a reality. The plan set out in this book is simple and effective. I can strongly recommend this to anyone that wants to dream big and make shit happen in their lives! It’s one of my favorites for sure.
Time to get experimenting with the Law of Attraction in your own life? Yes. Great. That’s why E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality is on my list. Filled with scientific experiments anyone can do, that take little to no money, and very little time, this book is a lot of fun.
The first of the experiments begin with you asking for a tangible item within a certain time frame. Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? What does this prove? That you can manipulate and control the laws of the universe, that you can literally will what you want into your life. As you begin to prove this to yourself within these experiments, you’ll squeeze that inner critic right out of your life.
Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. That’s the beauty of this book. You can really criticize what you haven’t experienced for yourself. Out of all the books I recommend on this list, I think this might be the most powerful because you are literally experimenting and testing these theories in your life.
And isn’t that the real power in all of this — you want to change your life, get started.
