And when i see all these rappers on TV saying "I got all the money in the world, i got all the ladies in the world etc..." then they have HUGE million dollars mansions.
And when i saw an interview of Justin bieber on TV, the reporter asked "What would you do if you fail in your career?" and he immidietly replied "That won't happen". She then said "yes but what if?" and he said "no no that's not gonna happen". Like if doesn't even think one second about failure and now look where he is now...
But mostly my question is, does egocentrism can make law of attraction work?
It seems that the awnser is YES but what do you think about this?
I think your observations have some merit. As for the rappers focusing on success--they often do so with great detail and vividness, which is known to generate emotional fuel for the manifestation of change (images along the lines of what you say: "I got all the money in the world," "I got all the ladies in the world," "I got bling here and bling there," etc.). As for Justin Bieber refusing to contemplate failure, that is another good example.
Mike Dooley, author of Manifesting Change
(a very good audio book), points out something quite interesting which makes me think of your point about not accepting failure: one doesn't really know one fails if one never gives up. One could die trying and be none the wiser. So the notion of failure has an element of time, which is considered by many to be an illusion, anyway.
As for whether egocentrism makes the LoA work, I would say "no." The law is the law is the law is the law. It pre-existed our manifestation into this so-called physical reality--it is the prime cause of our spirit's manifestation into the physical world. We are conscious co-creators dwelling among of our creations, including the "seeming" reality of our existence in physical form. Given that the LoA predated our taking human form, the LoA is not caused by, or made to work by, human egocentrism. Were that true, then the LoA would not "work" for those who did not muster up egocentrism. But the LoA is always
at work, and those with little or no egocentrism also get what they think about, under the LoA.
Again, citing Mike Dooley, the LoA is like gravity--it's just a law. It doesn't care about the particulars of a person's situation--it just works on anyone and everyone, based on the law of vibration and the dominant content of their thoughts.
