Saying 'just be happy and you'll attract everything you desire' may be simple, but it doesn't work for everyone.
If LOA is a universal law it has to work for everyone. And it truly does, at least when you know the whole story about everyone. Everyone is a vibrational mix, lots of vibrational set points on lots of topics. You could be happy about 9 out of 10 areas of your life which would mean if you would give those areas equal air time you would be very very happy. But if you are obsessed with that one area that isn't working, which means you give that on area more air time than the other 9 ones, then you will mess them up too.
Were you happy about your business at that time? Were you listening to the news and reading the papers regularly? Were you healthy? Overall happy relationships, not only your mate but also parents, friends, colleagues? etc.
