“The Law of Attraction is not really a new movement. It has been around at least since 1870's. Then Napoleon Hill published his wide range of studies in 1920's and 30's and discussed items such as cosmic habit force and such.

“Welcome aboard, Sampsa Lopponen. I wish you best of luck in the future.
