Another sidetrack from medicine, I was just come across the "Law of Attraction" and is seem like an inetersting concept !!! is anyone out there familliar with it?

And it is impersonal and does not see good things or bad things.

It's an instantaneous, but he's achieved most of his successes that way. A little segue from this, he claims that he used "...

So you are trying to say we will get what we focus on be it in a negative or positive way. I think it is quite true. Borrowing from pyschology model of system 1 and system 2 process of thinking, our decision is affected by what we come across despite the fact that we like to believe we are not that easily manipulated. For example, if you are to chose between 2 candidate in an interview, you will more likely to choose a name that you have came across recently and not one that you have never come ...
