We don't attract what we want, we attract what we are

I'll give it a try:

Δεν ελκύουμε αυτό που θέλουμε, ελκύουμε αυτό που είμαστε.

How's this look...

Εμείς δεν προσελκύουν αυτό που θέλουμε, μπορούμε να προσελκύσει τι είμαστε

EDIT: Apologies if my translation say anything bad in it. I used Google translator and I have no clue if that was even remotely close...

this is the closest i got:

Δεν προσελκύουμε τι που θέλουμε, προσελκύουμε τι είμαστε

which translate to:

We do not attract what that we want, we attract what we are

+1, although I would prefer the for έλκουμε. It's έλκω not ελκύω in modern greek, no?

kostkon's translation is the closest you can get, without becoming verbose

Δεν ελκύουμε αυτό που θέλουμε, ελκύουμε αυτό που είμαστε.

Χαζή ιδέα αν θες τη γνώμη μου. Τα αντίθετα έλκονται, τα όμοια απωθούνται. :p
