Are you stuck in a perpetual cycle of lack? People often tell me that they would be happy if they had more money. However, contrary to popular thought, money is not wealth. You are already rich in many ways. When you realize that, your energy around money will change. Money is just energy. It is not inherently good or bad, nor does it have magical powers. To find out how you can enjoy the wealth you have right now and attract more into your life, keep reading!
Define Wealth: Your definition of wealth may not have anything to do with a surplus of money (it usually doesn’t). Wealth is what you value most and see as your top priorities. For example, if you have close family and that is very important to you, you have family wealth. Do you have a career that you love and that is important to you? That is wealth. What you value and see as priorities is where you find joy and where your wealth is. Your house, travel, books, spirituality, relationships… the list could go on. It doesn’t matter how any of this compares to what other people have or don’t have. If you love, value and make these things a priority in your life, then they are your wealth.
Enjoy your wealth – It sounds cliché, but when you are in a state of gratitude for what you have in your life today, it is easier to attract more of what you want tomorrow. While it’s human nature to focus on what you don’t have, take a look and using the slot deposit filter described above, determine if you already have “wealth.” If what you have makes you happy and you have created a life that demonstrates your values and priorities, then celebrate! Evaluate your wealth and then enjoy it. Most people don’t want money to have money; they love it for the pleasurable experiences it can bring them. When you realize how much wealth you already have, you will begin to feel a deep level of gratitude which, ironically, will allow you to create more financial wealth.
Attract and Increase Your Financial Wealth: Now that you’ve defined and are enjoying your current wealth, let’s talk about how you can gain more financial wealth to expand your experiences (note I didn’t say “improve” because that’s not necessarily what needs to happen) . To change your financial situation, link money to anything you value highly. Ask yourself how the money could make it better. For example, if you love to travel and are grateful for the travel opportunities you currently have, what would it be like to weave more money into your traveling life? Would you go to different places, travel more extensively, or incorporate different activities into the travel experience?
Do you notice the difference? You are not sad, nor do you feel lacking. Instead, he is happy and appreciative of the trips he already takes and wonders how more money could improve his experience. Try this with each of the categories you defined as value and priority. By allowing joy and gratitude for your current “wealth” to expand and exploring ways that additional money would enhance it, you are raising the priority of money in your value system and attracting more of it into your life.
Money is just energy, neither positive nor negative. Its value lies in how it enhances what is truly important to you. As you recognize the benefits of adding money to your “wealth,” its value to you will increase and your financial situation will improve.
Take a moment right now to really see how abundantly rich you are in all the ways that matter to you and feel happy. Everything else will come from that.
