Wealth coach and financial literacy guru Ash Cash stopped by
BLACK ENTERPRISE to share some of the
principles discussed his new book, Mind
Right, Life Right: Manifesting Dreams Through The Laws of The
The Law of Attraction
The law of attraction is a 19th-century philosophy that teaches
that positive and negative circumstances are shaped and created
by a person’s thought pattern. Hence, positive
thinking will attract positive energy, and in turn, lead
to a happier, healthier, and financially abundant life. On the
other hand, negative thinking will produce negative experiences
in your life. This school of thought reemerged into mainstream
pop culture following the release of the best-selling book
and film, The Secret, in 2006.
Cash opens his book by blasting the law of attraction as
“bulls—t.” He criticizes this belief system, saying that, based
on his personal experiences, this philosophy alone will not
create long-lasting success.
“I think that when the law of attraction was being introduced
to everybody, people accepted the law of attraction as the
be-all, end-all. That if they wanted to achieve all their
dreams and aspirations, all they had to do was think about
them, then—poof! They would magically appear,” Cash says.
“It’s not just about thinking. Your thoughts do become [real]
things, but there’s a process that comes along with it.”
Cash does admit that he too was very excited after
watching The Secret the first time, and it helped
him attract a lot of great opportunities. However, “I wasn’t
really able to hold on to them, until I realized that there
were other laws that [also] govern the universe,” he says.
Ash’s Secrets for Attracting and Sustaining Success
In our interview, Cash lists three principles from his book that actually generate success:
- Thoughts do become things, but only with action. You have
to put in the work.
- Your perspective is what matters the most. If you change
the way you look at things, then the things that you look at
will change, as well.
- Understand that the universe is abundant, and there is no
reason to be jealous of others. Instead, we can get whatever we
want, if we focus on it.
