How many times have you said, “I’d love to, but I just can’t afford to do/have that right now!”? Saying “No. I don’t have the money right now” seems to be a socially acceptable excuse. This Iis a cowards way out, avoiding connecting with people and escaping from confronting the challenges of what it would take for yyou to accomplish your goals.
“When you do what you were born to do-the universe supports your every step.” -David Cates
Tell yourself (and others_ the truth. If you really wanted something you would find the time, money, energy, and support to dto/have what you want. Where there’s a will – there’s a way. If you are willing to have what you say you want – you will find the creativity and support to make it happen.
“Wealth is directly related to knowing what ones inner gifts are and then developing the ability to successfully share them with others.” –Jean Houston, PhD
There are infinite possibilities and potential for you. First, tackle the habit of automatically responding with “I Can’t” and develop the mind-set of “I Can”. Everything is possible. The only limitations come from lack of knowledge, love, creativity and action. These are all things you can develop, if you are willing to have what you say you want.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller
Do you want to exist or thrive? Many people believe that abundance comes through hard work, scrimping and cutting back. This rarely brings us abundance or joy. At best this brings us survival – fearing the future and never making mistakes. Those who follow caution may exist longer, but at a price of love and meaning.
Removing the blocks to Receive Prosperity
Take the test:
1. Are you hanging onto a job that is mentally, emotionally, or physically draining because it provides you with a good health or retirement plan?
2. Are you holding on to a relationship because it provides you with financial security and/or keeps you from taking responsibility for yourself?
3. Have you ever stayed awake at night wondering where you will get enough money to pay the bills only to go on a buying binge when money does come?
4. Have you said No to something you wanted because of fear – of not having enough money for the future or of being judged as selfish?
If you said “yes” to any of the above, you are only existing in an area of your life.
Financially thriving, free individuals have a different mind-set – not because they are wealthy but because their habits and beliefs create their freedom. People can have millions of dollars and not be free and others can have very little and be abundant.
Here are some areas that can help shift your circumstances and enhance your life:
When you know who you are and what you want, it is easier to make choices and set priorities that support getting your needs met. Ask yourself, “What are my gifts that I want to develop and share?” & “What do I want to do before I die?” Instead of saying “I don’t have the money,” you may mean that “This is not a value (or priority) for me at this time.”
When you love yourself – you make time for yourself, you listen to your soul’s deepest desires and choose opportunities that help you grow and stretch. You decide what you want and are willing to receive help/support when it comes. You develop relationships and seek a community of people who are living their full potential and have productive healthy love in their lives. Ask, “How can I love my Life more? How can I be more open to more love in my life? Who are my role models and what can they teach me?”
If you don’t have money you’re not accessing your creative potential – you are living in the existing zone (comfort zone). Resistance makes us step outside our comfort zone, making us grow and change. Ask: “Where do I need to think differently – or – practice imagining new possibilities? What steps can I take to stretch my comfort zone and start living a life I love and that loves me?”
Make “10 things that are important to do before I die” list. Prioritize them. Ask yourself: “
” If something calls to your heart, find a way to bring it into your life. Take an action now that supports your commitment to your hearts desire.
“Life is not about existing or maintenance of the status-quo. It is about celebrating love and stretching ourselves creatively to become more than we thought we could be. Life is about developing potential and being open to possibilities that expand the boundaries of our minds and hearts.” – Stephanie J. Allen
