Thanks for your question Inspiredbydg, its an interesting one. I believe I was introduced to the law of attraction because I had reached a junction in my life. I was re-thinking how I was living, my career, my personal relationships and I had a lot of questions. Out of the blue my cousin sent me a copy of 'The Secret' because he had read it and as he said "he thought I might like it".
Turns out I more than liked it, I loved it and it started me on a journey of discovery that has lead me to leaving the career I was in for over 20 years, becoming a writer/coach and creating a whole new life for myself.
Simply put, the teaching of the law of attraction resonated with me and taught me that I could live a different life and most importantly I learned that I am in complete control of my life, I do not have to sit around watching random events happening to me, I can create what I want to experience and its great fun doing so.
