We all want money. That’s a given. Money buys experiences, freedom and stability. So it is OK to want more money. I think many people have some success in attracting more money into their lives at times. But… is that stream consistent? And is it enough to do what you need to in order to live your best possible life?
Now I’m going to let you in on a secret to manifesting money. I want you to look at your big picture goals and apply the filter: How can I save the world? Think about each of those goals, and see how you can be of service and value to the people around you, and the people connected to you in this awesome universe we live in.
Making this shift does a few things to fire up our goals. It shifts the focus from how can I make money, to how can I be of value to someone else in order to receive money. If someone else is counting on you to save the world, how much more motivation is there to keep doing it? Uhhh tons! It takes us out of our own head, makes us a bit more objective in problem solving, and gives us something to focus our attention on and be passionate about. It also gives us a positive emotion to focus on. Money is an abstract concept. When we take a concrete outcome that will make people’s lives better, it is much easier to attach it to a positive emotion.
The other concept I want to share is that scarcity equals value. Everyone thinks about their own world and their own experiences. The What’s in it for Me? mentality is probably the most commonplace concept when you start thinking about money. It is a rare thing to have goals that serve the world with your greatness. If you shift from What’s in it for me? To How can I be of Service? Then start solving problems, you will have all the money you can dream of.
I know what you’re going to say. I’m hustling as hard as I can now, barely making ends meet. I don’t know where rent is coming from this month. I get it. I’ve been there. I got fired from a job. It was a blessing in disguise as it was a horrible fit and I was miserable doing it, but at the time we went from me being the primary breadwinner to having to subsist on my husband’s income from a seasonal business, and it was October. I have never hustled as hard and as unproductively as I did at that time. It was really difficult to think about other people when I didn’t know where our rent money was coming from.
But if you want out of that place, you focus on what works. And what works is to change your thoughts about money. If all you can see and feel is scarcity, that is what you will get more of. So get a hold of your run away emotions. Crawl out of the hole. The direction is up. Meditate to gain control of your thoughts and emotions. Plan for a better future and execute the things on your list.
