Are you thinking but not growing rich? Maybe it’s because that’s all you are doing. Having prosperous thoughts is great, but it takes more than just thinking about being rich, to be rich.
You can’t think about wealth one second and then wonder why it’s not showing up in your life the next. These are two contradictory thoughts that cancel each other out. And leaving prosperity “in your head” won’t work either. It takes the combination of three things to bring wealth in your life: thought, feeling, and action.
Yes, you’ve heard it all before. But it’s true! What most people don’t get is that they think they need to just think of wealth once or twice and that will work! NOT!
You need to develop a wealthy attitude; a way of thinking that is always associated with wealth, not just something that you do now and then.
Then you need to couple that thinking with some incredible feelings of wealth. Don’t feel wealthy? Do you have a roof over your head? Did you eat breakfast, are you eating lunch-is dinner a sure thing?
Hello! There are a huge number of people in the world who can’t count on breakfast, lunch or dinner, in fact, they’d be lucky to get anything. Wealth is a relative thing and you need to find a way to feel wealthy, right now in order to experience it in your life. And no, doing it just once won’t work.
To feel wealthy, write down a list of all those things you are appreciative of in your life; your good health, the job you have, the roof over your head, the car you drive and (I don’t care if it’s old-most people in the world walk to where they want to go) the clothes on your back.
There are 6 billion people in the world we live in today. There are roughly 350 million Americans in the United States. There are 1 billion people in India alone and only one-third of them are considered in the upper class.
So essentially, there are about 350 million people in India who are poor, living on the streets or in shanty towns. Try thinking about how many people in the world really have dry roofs over their head, food on their table, and money in their wallet.
To the person living in India in a shanty-if you live in America, have a job, a house, a car-you’re wealthy! Now think of other places in the world where people don’t have it as nice as you do. You’re reading this on a computer. If you have a computer or can get to one-you’re rich in the eyes of the world’s poor!
So develop the feeling of wealth and be appreciative every day for it. The last step is to take action on your wealth. I don’t mean go hog wild and spend, spend, spend. That’s really not smart. Try donating to someone else from a feeling place of wealth. Give that homeless person the money in your wallet. Clean out your closet and take the clothes to the thrift shop or donate them to the Salvation Army.
Go online to Kiva and help someone else who’s trying to help themselves. Giving is an incredible way to feel wealthy and it passes the wealth on. But don’t do it if you’re just trying to get what you want from the Universe. That won’t work and the Universe will recognize your dishonesty. Give from your heart freely and watch what happens!
Seriously, get rid of the clutter in your life, make a change! Practice these steps for thirty days, thinking, feeling and sharing your wealth and you will attract more of it in your life.
