The Law of Attraction is the name given to the maxim “like attracts like”. It is often turned into the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. This belief is based on the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that “like energy attracts like energy.”
But is there anything to this “Law”? What’s actually going on? And why do so many people who apply it seem to get no clear results?
In this episode, Keith is joined by Clinical Hypnotherapist and Meetup Maestro Matt Kendall who recently gave a very well received talk in London on this very topic, but not in the way you might imagine or expect!
Matt shares some of the results and insights from his research into this Law. We will be exploring a balanced and researched discussion on a range of personal development techniques, including taking a long, hard look at the Law of Attraction itself, and a whole lot more besides.
Among the topics covered in this exciting and interesting episode are –
- Is it actually a “Law”?
- Why do some seem to get great results and others nothing, when they do the same thing?
- What do peer reviewed articles, statistics, and scientific research have to tell us about the subject?
- What is wrong with the Personal Development industry, and what does that have to do with the Law of Attraction?
- What are some practical, real-world, steps which one can take to enable one to change?
Matt is a qualified therapist and works with clients mainly for social anxiety. Matt tells his clients “you cannot therapy your way out of an issue!” Matt believes that action is much more effective that trying to get the right “mindset” or asking the universe for help.
Matt also worked as a dating coach for a number of years, helping both men and women to develop their social skills. Unlike a lot of people in the self-help industry, Matt clearly walks the walk and demonstrates everything in his own life. His real world experience, straight forward approach and clear steps can help anyone to start over and get a life they are happy to lead.
Matt arrived in London 6 year ago with just a suitcase and a laptop. Armed with only his skills, he has built up businesses, social circles and Meetup groups. Matt currently runs several Meetup groups which total nearly 20k people. He has done all this on his own by using very simple systems.

Award-winning coach, international speaker, multi-time best-selling author, hypnotist, occasional magician, and writer of this post, Keith spent his first 40 years suffering from several phobias including being terrified of speaking with strangers. After one incident too many, he started studying and training in NLP & hypnosis to conquer his own issues, found he was rather good at it, and changed careers (aided by redundancy at just the right moment after 20 years in IT). He helps people transform their deepest fears into their greatest strengths, and having helped over 5,000 people across 5 continents, he is the UK’s #1 Fear Strategist.
