Okay so, My dad had been selected for an interview and if he had made it, we would be going to Germany for 3 years and that was a great opportunity. We made him prepare well by covering every piece of information and asking questions and he answered very well.
So, I decided to use the LOA to manifest this. I fantasised about being in germany (not as a chore, I was just imagining how my life would be there) and I told myself that my dad will make it, my mom knows the secret too and so does my dad.
So my mom was also kind of convinced that he'd make it because he's really really good at what he does. So, my dad called us after the interview and told us it went well and he answered everything well too.
He too was hoping for his name to come. There were 5 people interviewing and only one had to go. Now, the results came tell he is a bit disappointed because we were all looking forward to going to germany. I don't particularly feel bad or anything.
I'm just confused as to why he didn't make it. I like to think that it's only for the better and maybe there is some other plan but considering the law of attraction exists, there's nothing like fate right? So, what did we do wrong?
Thanks in advance to all the people who respond! ♥♥
First, I'm sorry for your father having not to make it. But I'm very sure there's still a lot of opportunities along the way.
Your reality is not your father's reality. Although you did visualize your father having to make it, it's still up to his insides how he'll be able to manifest this, or if he's vibrationally-aligned. He may have some inner conflicts about his capabilities or his chances during the interview. This is something that's out of your hands. It doesn't mean though that you won't be able to go to Germany, if that's what you want, but it can be manifested in a different way. The Universe aligns itself and comes up with what you want not exactly as how you visualize the circumstances to be but under its own terms... as long as you have a clear intention on what you want, what you want will be given and the "how" part of how it can be brought to you is part of the fun of not knowing.
Also, you must have held on too much or are too attached to the thought that you can't learn to let it go and let the Universe. @Stingray's "Manifestation Experiment 1" explains this part in detail.

Hmmm, I'd like to put forth a different perspective from the one @sagchiq03 offered (but not any more valid of course).
"Your reality is not your father's reality" I agree with that, and although both realities exist, you are ultimately the boss of your reality. Everything that happens in your reality happens due to your beliefs, vibrations etc., I mean everything, including what other people around you experience. If that weren't so, Law of Attraction would come to a contradiction; in plain English, if your desires depended on other people's state of being and their desires that would mean that some times you wouldn't get anything and everything you wanted. And that would mean that Law of Attraction sometimes wouldn't "work" :)
So, if everything exists righ now, "manifestation" of things as a concept for something to come into existence is false. It was always there, what ever it is that you want, it's just that people can't percieve/experience("manifest") certain things while having limiting beliefs about the subject, not vibrating in a prefered way etc. There are infinite amount of probabilities(even infinite amout of versions of your dad and his reality :)), choose one that you prefere.

sagchiq03, you mentioned Ho'oponopono in your last reply. One of the key precepts of Ho'oponopono is that we are clueless on the level of the conscious thinking mind. We don't see the whole picture of what is going on so we can't know what would be best for us or for others. It's all about surrendering to our God-selves, Divinity or whatever you want to call it.
It's not really about intending anything, but about clearing the way for inspiration to come through. Blessings often come in disguise.

you ask what did we do wrong. first of all you are not alone in this world it was not you or your dad that took the decision.You ask this because you see this event as failure. what if the failure was going there? would it change your perspective on the situation? you see the one that took the decision add is own interest, moral value, and different factor that contributed in is decision. could it be that he think another candidate is more suited for the job? could it be that the position is not as interesting as it sound and he did not want your father to be deceive by the job offer? you do not know; only the one that took the decision know it. since your father is the one concerned he might have is own idea on that. ask the right question to the one concerned and you might find the answer or a part of the answer. stop seing everything as 2 extreme white and black, good or bad since it sometime is more complex then that with a lot more variance between the 2 opposite extreme.
if you know your self you will know other but if you do not know your self how can you hope to know other? first know thyself and then get to know other.
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
Let there be light, be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.
Your father has done everything right, his desire is far more greater than he is aware of and the Universe has already laid the groundwork for his fulfillment for something even better, trust it, it is never up to us what and how something unfolds for others, expect nothing for others but only for yourself, then good things can happen for others from your own perspective and even then, you might be surprised, trust that everything is always working out for YOU as that is always enough for yourself and everyone who is close to you. Trust is the key word here and you are always doing everything right, hang in there and expect amazing things that will surpass both you and your dad's expectations, relax, Universe has this!

I am going to bring some tough news which may cause you to become distressed.
My understanding is That the traditional concept and leading theory of the law of attraction and its principals.... do not work. And it may be some hard truth to bear at first but my life became easier when I accepted this.
The secret has been written by feminazi psycho-airy fairy marketing guru. In case you didn't know, I think now she has published 5-6 books further sugar coating her original message of the law of attraction. I would guess, on this fact, that her main agenda is to make money. Her target audience includes insecure, unsure, hopeful people like yourself that are looking at any means to get what you desire, without paying any cost of discomfort or pain.
Following the secret puts you in an incredibly weak position: You are putting your power into a specific, particular outcome. Your locus of control is external, and to put it brutally, anyone that is blindly putting their faith into the secret is merely exercising another format of learned helplessness. Folks, expecting an event to occur because of your feelings and thinking (and nothing else) is nothing short of schizophrenic. If the secret were genuinly real, children would be flying. Children would have unicorns and mermaids existing. Children have utter conviction that Santa and the tooth fairy exist not as a fantasy- but as real. Children do not have this mental buffer of fiction and reality because they are not developmentally matured enough....using this as evidence to show that the secret is utter bull.
But here is what you can rely on- yourself. Not your feelings, are your stories, or your positive thinking, but your behaviour and actions. The best way for your dad to get a job would be to apply for hundreds, study on how to succeed at interviews, and then go out and try. Action taking. That is not the secret. That is common sense.
