It sounds like you have been working away in your chosen path, without focusing on the results you really want. If you don't have the finished sculpter constantly in your vision, all the chipping, chiseling and carving won't bring about a piece of art, or at least a good product. You are really working the hard way, instead of putting the LOA to work for you, showing you far better ways. Insisting on the "how" is always the hardest way, not getting you what you desire most of the time. Focus on the outcome and let it actualize, seizing opportunities and taking inspired actions along the way. It's a different feeling. Much more enjoyable instead of hard work you make yourself do, reluctantly but on auto pilot without revision.
I just read Neville's Sound Investments today, in which he was informed of and analysed the message his wife received in her dream: You must stop spending your thoughts, your time and your money, for every thing in life must be an investment.
Let you and me both start investing our thoughts, time and money. May things come together for you miraculously and joyously.
