I don’t have to prove anything to anyone…
by Andrea Schulman
Before becoming a Law of Attraction coach and web administrator, I didn’t realize that “proving myself” was a concern of mine that carried much weight. I’m not sure if I ever would have realized it did if I hadn’t chosen this career path.
I started my website and business because I had developed total and complete faith in the Law of Attraction. I saw it working in every aspect of my life. I learned how it worked, and I learned how to make it work for me.
Because of my successes, I wanted to take my passion (teaching) and apply it to this subject. I knew this subject was something I could enjoy teaching. I knew it was something that would make a difference in people’s lives. And it does-I know this for certain.
However, there must have been some latent beliefs about me needing to prove myself. As I established this business, I suddenly felt the need to prove my ability to attract.
Now, if you want to teach people about the Law of Attraction, there is a temptation to “prove” that you have it mastered. To demonstrate that your life can measure up to society’s standards of what “the good life” looks like. However, taking this route is highly limiting. Here’s why:
When we worry about proving our attracting skills to others, we become misaligned. Instead of going after the things we truly desire, we start to go after the things we think other people need to see from us in order to take us seriously.
This is an issue, because with the Law of Attraction, you have to have a pure desire in order for your dream come through to fruition. You have to want something because you want it, not because you think other people will approve of it.
I am growing with the Law of Attraction, and I continue to see it working in my life on an everyday basis. However, at this point, I truly understand I cannot “make” anyone believe that the Law of Attraction works for me. All I can do is live it, and be honest about it, and those who are ready to hear the message will be drawn to it.
I cannot prove it to anyone else. What drives and motivates me is much greater than the symbols people are often looking for. I’m just not willing to reduce my desires down to these symbols. I am driven by freedom, passion and love. That is what drives me, and my life is a reflection of these three important factors, regardless of what other people think.
Learning how to use the Law of Attraction isn’t about achieving some state of perfection everyone else agrees with. It’s about following your own path and enjoying the adventure of the unfolding. It’s about allowing good things to happen to you. It’s NOT about forcing your life to conform to other people’s standards.
In other words, the Law of Attraction works, and I know it works, regardless of how rich, beautiful, successful, healthy, thin or popular I am. I don’t have to “prove” myself in regards to any of these factors. I may manifest a nice car or a successful business, but this does not mean I am a truly masterful creator. What makes me a masterful creator is whether or not I am enjoying my life and doing what I want to do. And I am, no matter what it may look like to anyone else.
There are lots of things I deliberately create that may not seem that impressive to other people. I like manifesting friendly people. I like manifesting new ideas and clarity. I like manifesting fun with my friends and family. I like manifesting a good article on my blog. I like manifesting synchronicity. I like manifesting conversations about creation and the Law of Attraction. I like manifesting my happiness.
These things may not be too impressive to others, but these are the things that make my days joyful and exciting to me. I don’t want to pretend that it is my success or my money that makes me a masterful creator, because these are just details, and they aren’t really particularly important to me. Of course, I like creating financial freedom, but only because it allows me to live my life the way I want it, not because I enjoy money or success on some deep, personal level.
This is an important message for me to share today, because I feel it needs to be said. You have an opportunity to create a joyful life for yourself. You have an opportunity to create wonderful things that have meaning to you. Whether or not other people agree with your creations or would want them is irrelevant, because they are yours.
I invite you to join me in evaluating your desires creations on a personal level, without considering other people’s opinions. Are you going after things that really drive you? Is your life reflective of your joy? This is all that matters.

I’m learning to give my true desires top billing in my life, and I invite you to do the same. There’s no sense in trying to prove yourself to anyone through your creation, because in the end, other people’s opinions have nothing to do with what really drives you.
Ultimately, there is no competition. There are no winners and losers, and nobody’s passing out prizes at the end for being perfect. Perfection, after all, is an enigma, and it doesn’t actually exist. We each have a life to live, and we all get to choose how to live it. We each get to do it differently, and we each get to be unique.
Life is a gift that is given to all of us, but to make the most of it we have to be honest about how we really want to live it. This is how we use the Law of Attraction with true success.
