What would you do for money? It is the age-old question that has been asked time and time again. There have even been movies made about it; remember Demi Moore in Indecent Proposal?
What would you do for money? Many of us have the mindset that we have to do one of two things:
1. Work really hard or 2. Become some kind of unscrupulous character to get it.
What if I told you, that all it takes is changing the way you think?
That’s right, change your thinking. I know everyone on the planet has told you 50 ways to Sunday that you need to change something. You have changed so much, how can you change anything more? This rule not only applies to money but many other areas in life too.
Here’s how it works:
Stop wanting money.
Huh? What the heck? Now that you are super confused, let me explain. Wanting money and wanting things is exactly that. You will only ever attract to you more wanting. Instead of actually receiving money, you will receive the everlasting experience of wanting money. The universe works in mysterious ways!
Back to Step 1. Stop wanting money. Step 2. Believe you have money and abundance and you will always have it.
Think of it this way: you already have money. You have (hopefully) a job that pays you money. You have more than enough to survive. (No one says you need the latest Smartphone, daily lattes or a 65” TV to survive). What hinders us is our constant focus on want and lack. By doing this, that is all we will ever attract to us. Focus on lack and your grey matter will send you out to the nearest shopping mall to buy stuff.
Are you getting it? If your mind believes that you are lacking in something or do not have enough, it will find whatever way possible to go out and get it. Even if it means putting you in more debt. Your mind doesn’t stop and say, hey, what about my debt? Nope. It just goes right ahead and solves the problem of lack that you think you are experiencing.
Focus on abundance and prosperity. Say to yourself: I am prosperous. I am abundant.
This philosophy has been a huge advantage in paying down my debt and realizing that I have more than enough of everything in my life. I have a few of them posted on the wall above my desk and I remember to repeat them to myself every evening and morning. It is my own small form of meditation.
The next time you think about how much debt you have, tell your brain to think differently about money.
You can have money and you can be prosperous!
