The capacity to “know” you’re prosperous — even when you don’t yet feel like you are — is a particularly difficult facet of learning to attract riches.
It’s simple to feel like your efforts to attract what you want are futile when your external circumstances constantly reflecting the illusion of lack. But it’s precisely that anger that will keep you trapped in a never-ending loop of lack.
With the help of your strong will, you can release yourself from the prison of scarcity. To what end do you put your efforts towards fostering a state of scarcity?
How? – By giving it your whole attention and keeping it at the forefront of your mind at all times.
– By repeatedly recognizing its presence in your life.
How? – By bringing it up in conversation with other people.
– By taking on the world’s scarcity as your own.
The more you dwell on your own lack, the more of it you will feel drawn to seek out.
The good news is that by shifting your attention to the opposite end of the spectrum, you can utilize the same technique to bring wealth and success into your life.
Always keep plenty of money and success in your thoughts. But do so NOT from a position of lack, fear, or anxiety, but rather with the optimism, joy, and self-assurance born of knowing that everything you seek is already yours.
Repeat to yourself again and over that you are a magnet for wealth and that good fortune comes to you effortlessly.
It’s important to let other people know about the good things in your life. Instead of griping about the negatives, you should spread the positives and encourage those around you to do the same.
Focus on the vast resources available to you at all times. All the things, people, and good fortune in your life count, but so do the outward signs of prosperity you find in the world. Instead of being jealous of the wealthy, think of it as though the universe has held up a mirror to show you that YOU, too, can become wealthy and successful.
Most essential, cultivate the “knowing” that you have as much control over your level of success and happiness as you do over your level of failure and hardship.
Perhaps you don’t think you’ve actively chosen poverty and hardship for yourself (after all, who would? ), but it’s easy to make such a decision unconsciously. If you don’t actively work for financial success, you might as well sit in the trunk of your car and expect it to take you where you want to go. No, seriously, you have to DRIVE.
The following affirmation is one that can be repeated numerous times a day:
“I CHOOSE the harmonious flow of riches and abundance NOW because I am a powerful creator in my own right.”
You could feel dishonest at first, when you start speaking it. It’s because you don’t truly believe that you “know” such a thing to be true. But persist anyhow. Eventually, you will start to believe the affirmation you have been repeating to yourself if you keep saying it with an authoritative and confident tone.
And when it happens, you’ll see the changes in your external circumstances that bring you the success and fulfillment you “know” you deserve.
