We'd all like to experience it, especially where money is concerned.
But in order to actually bring financial abundance into your life, you've got to change your beliefs.
Take a minute to think about your beliefs when it comes to money. Are there any thoughts that could be standing between you and a more abundant life? Even if you don't say them out loud, your beliefs are a message to the universe. It's like sending an email of what you want - or, at the very least, expect - to experience in your life. So if you believe that you'll never have enough money, that's exactly what the universe will give you!
Your beliefs lay the foundation for your entire life. Not only do they communicate with the universe, but they also affect the actions you take (or don't take!). If the wrong beliefs take hold, they'll lead to actions that will prevent you from achieving a life with financial abundance.
How do you know if your beliefs are holding you back? See if any of them match these common prosperity-blocking beliefs:
1. "I have to work really hard for my money."
Mom and Dad probably told you that hard work is the only way to get ahead in life. You probably have gotten used to the idea that you have to struggle mightily for every single penny you earn. Plus, you probably don't think that you can get something for anything less than that. Unfortunately, these beliefs might be causing you to push away legitimate opportunities that would lead to more financial abundance.
The key to changing this belief is optimism. Instead of thinking that you have to work like a dog all the time, embrace the fact that good things can come easier to those who expect them.
2. "I don't deserve a lot of money."
Maybe you think that other people need the money more than you do. Or maybe it makes you feel guilty to even consider accepting more money for that 9-to-5 job or for that above-and-beyond task you just completed.
These feelings aren't noble; they're a sign of unworthiness.
This belief is your way of telling the universe "thanks, but no thanks". Until you believe that you actually deserve more abundance in your life, you won't get it. Learn to love yourself, and it'll be much easier for you to accept all of the good things - including money - that come your way.
3. "Money doesn't grow on trees."
If you think there's only so much money to go around, you're focusing on lack instead of abundance. Unfortunately, until you change that way of thinking, all you'll experience is lack.
To shift your mindset, look at all the examples of massive abundance. Look at your wealthier friends, or look at the endless array of rich celebrities. They've created plenty of financial abundance in their lives, so why can't you do it too?
Instead of believing that things are impossible, use these examples to remind you that anything is possible. These people are living proof that the sky's the limit. The only one holding you back is you!
Bottom line - if any of these beliefs sound familiar, you've got to eliminate them. Once you do, you'll begin taking actions that lead to more financial abundance. Either way, your beliefs are going to turn into your physical reality, so focus on making your reality a good one!
