If your definition of abundance is "having more than just enough" or "a consistent flow of what you need when you need it," but that seems like an elusive goal, I've got some insight and inspiration today to help you (including access to a free movie all about how to create more abundance).
Today's blog post comes from one of my favorite mentors, David Neagle, from his portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life.”
Question: When your world is falling apart and you do not have the money or access to money to get help from ‘a coach’ how do you keep pushing for the breakthrough?
Answer: Fantastic question!
First, let’s get some perspective. Your world is never REALLY falling apart. I know at times it may seem like it, but take comfort in knowing that you create your own reality. Instead of looking at your situation as negative, try to identify how it serves you for it to be happening.
Do you need to let go of something you should have let of a long time ago?
Are you experiencing changes in your life that will eventually lead to a better and more free “you”?
How the “Law of Diminishing Intent” Keeps You Stuck
I see this law proving itself a lot with my prospects (those who tell me they want to come see me but never respond to my offer of a free consultation and those who have a consultation but defer to work with me til a later date), as well as with friends, family, and others I meet in social situations complaining of unfulfilled goals. It’s disheartening to see. And I will admit that I am guilty of it at times, too.
It’s a very true and insidious “universal law,” which basically states that the longer you wait to take action on an idea you have or a goal you want to achieve, the less likely you are to actually take the action. And if you don’t take the action, nothing changes and you stay stuck right were you are.
“The road to nowhere is paved with unfulfilled intentions.”
So what causes us to put off doing what we usually know needs to be done in order to get unstuck from unsatisfactory situations? And more importantly, how can we help keep ourselves from falling prey to the stagnancy this law creates?
Read the four steps.
In last week's blog, How Gratitude Improves Your Bottom Line, I explained how gratitude works on a spiritual and even scientifically verifiable way emotionally, to be able to better attract people/resources/circumstances to you that will help you get clients and make money as well as to tap into the creative, problem-solving part of your brain that will help you come up with solutions or new ideas to turn things around in challenging times (which there WILL be when you are a business owner).
I promised to share in this next blog some specific ways that I and my clients and readers have used that have helped us to get measurable (and often very quick) results from tapping into the power of gratitude.
What do you do when business isn’t going so well, and all the “doing” you are doing still doesn’t seem to be yielding new business, and you’re starting to feel the fear well up?
Do what I have learned to do: Stop and be grateful.
“What?!” you may exclaim. “How can I be grateful when more money is going out than is coming in?”
It seems counter-intuitive, but being grateful for both what IS and what ISN’T, for what you HAVE and what you DON’T HAVE, is a big key to helping turn things around.
I have proven this time and again in my business (even when I forgot for a while and had to bring myself back to this knowing). So have others.
Secrets to Getting What You Want
* Do you have a pattern of attracting more of what you DON'T want than
what you DO want?
* Are you frustrated with Law of Attraction principles that don't seem to work
(or take a long time)?
* Is there something specific you have been trying to manifest in your business (or life) that
keeps eluding you?
Believe it or not, you are a POWERFUL MANIFESTOR! You just might not be PURPOSEFULLY manifesting in a way that creates what you want, or that lengthens the time it takes.
This is one of the 3 Keys I teach my business clients in order to more easily and quickly create the business success they desire. And to share a bit of that with you, I have created the 30 Days of Manifesting & Prosperity Challenge on Facebook.
One of the dilemmas of holisitc practitioners and spiritual business owners that keeps them from having monetarily successful businesses is the seeming contradiction between helping people/being spiritual and making money.
I've heard if from my peers, my clients, and even my own inner voice (usually in the tone of my maternal Grandfather). Just as I've had to work on it with myself (greatly improved but it still reappears from time to time, especially when I try to move up another level in income), this belief in its many forms shows up in all of my business clients to some degree and in various stages.
Thanks to some wonderul coaches and mentors, I have learned that God wants me to be abundant more than I want it, and accept this idea more and more in my life. I in turn help my clients understand and accept it, too, in a way that opens them up to allow more abundance in.
Change – Adapt – Grow
Resist – Struggle – Die
I was whitewater rafting in West Virginia once and got unexpectedly tossed out of the raft. Even though the water was shallow and I had a life vest on, my first response was to panic and flail about in the tumultuous water, which only served to give me a mouth full of water and keep me stuck in the swirling rapids. In a panic, I thought, "Oh no–I'm going to drown!"
