I also probably have a bit of baggage that I need to work on: I grew up in an LOA household (more than 40 years ago - it was popular even then!) and we used to get punished if we weren't positive enough. It had the opposite effect to what she intended, as it made me hate everything LOA until I re-discovered it a few years ago (and decided to apply the same principles, but put in a great big dose of Buddhist compassion on top).
Just my thoughts. I know everyone isn't like my mother, but I thought it might be worth saying something in case it gives someone a different perspective.
