For most people, dreaming about a life with more success and abundance is a lot like winning the lottery.
Even after you’ve decided it’s impossible (or possible for others but not for yourself) you still wonder “what if…”
What if you could have the time and money freedom to spend with your family?
What if you fully committed to your dream career?
What if you manifested the love of your life?
But as much as we like to play with “what if’s”, the universe doesn’t work on a lottery system. The same seemingly inexplicable success that you see happen to others is always available to you as well! Not by random chance, but by birthright.
And contrary to what you may believe, everyone plays by the same set of rules – there are no hidden advantages or underhanded deals with the universe.
The dreams you hold in your heart can become the life you love living… if you use the Law of Attraction in the right way.
And in today’s post, I’ll show you exactly how – so you can attract the success and abundance you long for!
Trade Your Impossibilities for Possibilities (And Believe It’s Possible For You)!
As a human being, you’re a part of a young species on our planet Earth. In fact, not too long ago we believed something that had no basis in fact and lived tiny, contained lives as a result.
We believed the Earth was flat.
Because we believed it was impossible to go beyond the four corners of our world, we cut off our curiosity and settled for smallness.
That is, until we set our eyes beyond the horizon of our current awareness and challenged the truth of that impossibility.
The awareness we have today was made possible by the question “what if – there’s more to the world?” That thought was set into action by the desire for more.
The same holds true to your life. Most of us live every day creating the same results over and over because we choose not to challenge our current thought patterns and beliefs.
But now you’re at a point where your own “four corners” feel unsatisfactory.
You welcome “What if?” and lean into that deep longing in your heart to go beyond the limits of your current awareness and achieve more wealth, more abundance, and more success in all areas of your life.
This is a signal from the universe calling you to expand from where your life is right now. But to begin exploring those possibilities, you’ll need the tools necessary to answer that call.
Tools of the Trade: Building Attraction Instead of Dissatisfaction
Before you can start attracting the life you desire, you have to prepare your mindset. No successful explorer sets out on a journey without first calibrating their equipment.
In your journey to greater success and abundance, your “equipment” begins with the thoughts and beliefs you carry in your heart and mind.
First, let’s equip our awareness to understand what kinds of thoughts and beliefs prevent you from attracting results you want:
1. You’re afraid of the hidden down-side of success.
As much as you desire success, you have an equal – if not greater – desire to avoid the “inconveniences” that success may bring.
You may have thoughts along the lines of:
- More money, more problems (more taxes, jealousy, stress of hiring, etc.)!
- I don’t want to outshine anyone or lose people I love!
- My family isn’t going to approve of my new career!
When you give your attention to negative outcomes, you chart a path of great difficulty to get to your dreams. Don’t set your intention on avoiding the negatives but rather, consider the positives.
Instead: Create affirmations that focus on positive emotions, brave thinking, and visualization.
Be specific and clear in your vision, and as you repeat your affirmations, lean into the feeling of already having manifested your dreams.
What would you love? Feel into that question and hold that vibration of curiosity, possibility, love and abundance.
2. You protect yourself from failure at all costs.
Your inner critic will step in at the perfect moment and stop you from expanding into a greater life every single time – if you let it! This might sound like an inner voice saying (often without you noticing):
- I’m not ready.
- I can’t write/I can’t do videos/I can’t speak up.
- I’m not good enough for my dream.
The fact of the matter is, no one is ever “ready” to do something they’ve never done before! Your inner critic attempts to drag you back into your comfort zone the moment you step out of bounds. Don’t let that be you.
Instead: Flip the script. Rather than give in to imposter syndrome, notice the voice in your head – acknowledge that it’s trying to help you – and then release it. You have the ability to choose which thoughts to listen to at any given time. Choose to focus on the light rather than the shadow of any given situation, circumstance, or condition! With this practice, your thoughts will start sounding like:
- I’m on my way!
- It’s not that I’m not ready, I’m learning as I go!
- Failure isn’t something to be feared, it’s an opportunity to learn and grow!
3. You tell yourself it’s “too good to last.”
You expect success to be a fleeting moment, so instead of letting it take residence in your life, you limit abundance to a visitation. In turn, you limit how much success you’re allowed to have.
Instead: Consider that the law of attraction works with infinite abundance. That means that there is unlimited wealth, success, and abundance available to you (and everyone) that can never run out!
So instead of setting your allowance to what you’re used to – or what seems “realistic” – open yourself up to receive the support and limitless generosity of the universe.
The key is to make conscious decisions every single day to align your thoughts with your desires. And once you calibrate your tools for success, the next step is putting them into action!
Take Responsibility for Your Dreams (And Your Success)!
Success doesn’t magically appear to select individuals out of the blue.
You hold the same creative power to manifest your dream life by birthright, but the secret to tapping into that infinite potential lies in how your thoughts inspire your action. Rhonda Byrne explains how this relationship works in her famous book, “The Secret”:
“When you want to attract something into your life, make sure your actions don’t contradict your desires.. Think about what you have asked for, and make sure that your actions are mirroring what you expect to receive…
Act as if you are receiving it. Do exactly what you would do if you were receiving it today, and take actions in your life to reflect that powerful expectation. Make room to receive your desires, and as you do, you are sending out that powerful signal of expectation.”
Here’s how to apply the wisdom of this “secret” into your own life, in 3 simple steps:
1. Use your imagination to write down what you would love.
In order to attract success and abundance, it’s essential to be clear and specific on what success looks like for you!
Why is this so important? Imagine you had access to a master builder that could create your dream home. But instead of a blueprint, you told them “Build me something to make me happy, where I feel at home.”
No matter how skilled of a master builder they may be, they wouldn’t be able to make that house! So always aim to be specific and clear in your vision of greater success and abundance in your life!
2. Listen to the “2 Sacred Signals” from your soul: longing and discontent.
These signals inform you on what you would really love in your life and where you’re seeking expansion.
A longing is when you want something to shift in your life.
For example, “more income” or “a home with beautiful views of the water”, or “more time to spend playing with my kids/grandkids.”
Discontent usually manifests as unhappiness with your present circumstances. You may say things like, “I’m tired of working overtime” or “I hate going to bed alone every night.”
It’s essential to know that both are signposts, pointing you toward your dreams!
They are not signs that you are “ungrateful” or “greedy.” Life is always seeking to express itself in ever greater ways through you, and your unique “longings and discontents” are invitations to participate in the process.
3. “Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt
As long as you keep breathing, you will continue to create results in your wealth, your relationships, and all other facets of your life.
Whether you create a life out of design and attract success and abundance or drift back into default is always within your power to decide.
You can control who you choose to be every minute of every day, so notice big and small opportunities to increase your success and abundance moment by moment.
You can do this by making a habit of identifying what you “can do” within your perceived limitations.
For example, if you want to buy a bigger home, but don’ have the money yet – what could you do from where you’re at?
- You “can” create or clarify your vision – like drawing a blueprint for your dream home.
- You “can” begin looking for homes that match your vision.
- You “can” start a savings account to invest in your dream home – dollar by dollar, cent by cent.
When you start to forget your power, hit the refresh button. Remind yourself that success is in you right now!” Don’t wait for someone else to come along and change your situation for you; take responsibility for creating the change you desire.
Taking responsibility for your success shifts your mindset from “life is happening to me” to “life is happening with me”. This differentiation is what sets apart those who rely on conditions to succeed, and those who pave their own way to abundance.
Turn Your Money Situation Into Financial Success with an Abundance Mindset
Every one of us wants freedom and abundance, and the yearning to be wealthy in all areas of life is a natural calling. Again, this doesn’t mean we are greedy or ungrateful. After all…
Money enables you to be comfortable enough, so you can be creative enough to really give the gifts that are within you to the world!
Our desire for greater riches is yet another expression of Life, seeking to express itself through us in ever greater and more creative, expansive and beautiful ways.
As one outstanding example of how an abundance mindset empowers us to share our gifts freely to the world, Jim Carrey’s success story stands out.
At 19, Jim Carrey moved to Hollywood in pursuit of his dream like so many other young actors, but was immediately met with disappointment.
Broken and depressed, he wrote himself a check for $10 million “for acting services rendered” and post-dated it to Thanksgiving day of 1995.
He kept that check in his wallet for years until it eventually deteriorated over time. Then, in 1995, right before Thanksgiving day, he found out that he was going to make $10 million for his role in “Dumb and Dumber”!
What happened here?
Jim Carrey aligned his thoughts and actions in a way that put the power of the universe to work in his life for a specific goal.
He was able to transform both his financial situation and his quality of life by becoming a vibrational match for the Law of Attraction.
You can use Jim Carrey’s method, which is one of the techniques we share in our free vision board kit!
To turn up the volume on your vision, pair it with positive affirmations like this one from Bob Proctor:
“I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities through multiple sources on a continuous basis!”
Notice 2 things about this money affirmation:
1. It uses the present tense. This moves the positive energy into the “now” rather than in the future.
2. It opens up the possibility that there are an infinite number of ways the universe supplies and supports you (multiple streams of income)!
Remember to release the “how” and trust that the universe will bring what you desire into fruition.
This will change your money mindset within your subconscious mind and shift you into an energetic vibration that’s open and expecting to receive greater success from the universe!
Above All, Attract Success and Abundance with Gratitude
At this point you’ve learned the tools and mindset needed to take your daydream into the “dream work”. You’ve challenged your own impossibilities, discovered your hidden abundance blocks, and learned the step-by-step process in turning empowering thoughts into powerful action.
Now let’s close with a practice that will amplify your connection to the Law of Attraction and increase your overall happiness in life: gratitude.
Gratitude is the feeling tone that is harmonious with the experience of abundance.
We typically express our gratitude when we receive something special, such as a gift or a favor.
But a grateful heart is something you should cultivate every single day. The more often you can shift your vibrational state to one of gratitude, the easier it will be to shift your mindset to one that aligns with the success you desire.
So allow yourself to be guided by the universal signals of longing and discontent as you crystallize your vision of success, but always hold on to gratitude. Always leave the door open to experience the gifts and results you expect from the universe.
As you learn to use the Law of Attraction, remember that it is in your spiritual DNA to desire this kind of freedom and abundance!
