So...how does this all work with the LOA? It seems like, according to this post, what we want chooses us, we don't choose what we want.
During college, I felt like I had to choose some type of career path and I decided that because I was interested in politics and researching and I could write reasonably well, I should become a journalist. Added to that, I have a nice voice, so I thought I might be well-suited for radio. Well, I got some bones, but it seemed like everything was against me to succeed. I'd see others cruise into the field with no problems. I worked as a journalist, hated it, but still pushed on. I had so many obstacles...jobs would fold around me, shows would get cancelled, etc...
I tried to use the LOA to get ahead. I visualized the perfect job, I dream-boarded it, I journaled. But nothing. Finally, I had to realize that I never wanted this path for myself, I only thought I wanted it.
Through soul-searching, I realized my true passion is with plants and the ecology, although I have very little knowledge or talent in this area. Without doing anything, I managed to manifest property in the country for a sustainable farm. I've manifested a whole community of like-minded people. I feel very keenly that this milieu is somehow aligned with my purpose. But I didn't choose it at all. It chose me.
So, do we choose what we want or not?
