impaul99: What you said in your reply didnt really go against my point of view. In your post, you propose a counter-intuitive approach to things, and i agree with you to some extend. What i mean by that is that those 95% of the american population really dont have any kind of goal or plan to be rich, so they invariably end up in poorness, because as everyone knows "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail". So if someone uses the LoA the way I described it, the person will certainly have outstanding results in life, and will definitely NOT be in the 95% of population category. No need for believing in unproven things.
Acting Like Godot: Pretty interesting post. But you sure your experience isnt melted togheter with some kind of unconscious confirmation bias? How many times have you wished for something yet not received it? I'm sure a lot of times. How can you explain it? Why is your will sometimes "recognized by the universe" and then delivered, and sometimes it isnt?
