To some extent or another, we all desire to make money. True success as an entrepreneur comes from the ability to create wealth and call it in at will. While accumulating wealth may appear to be sufficient, financial success is also determined by how we build it. Without the ability to sustain that success in our lives, we are right back where we started.
Consider the last time you experienced financial success, whether it was winning a contract or receiving a cell phone notification alerting you to your newly replenished bank balance. If recreating that moment now feels like pure chance, you are not alone.
You set your sights on the stars and manifested the money you desired. But if you want to do it again, one crucial question remains: Where did the desire come from?
It’s possible that you manifested wealth from a place of scarcity. In other words, you were chasing your “idea” of success because you felt something was missing in your life. You were essentially shooting in the dark with no real aim. The results? Similar success will be difficult to find in the future because you’ll never know where to look. Living abundantly can assist you in attracting money because your attention is not drawn to what is lacking. After all, where we focus our attention is how we create our reality.
There is nothing wrong with pursuing our dreams; it is our motivation as entrepreneurs. However, we are frequently so distracted by the novelty of our destination that we fail to take appropriate action (or even at all). If we constantly think of our goals as something we lack, we are conditioning our minds to fear them: the unknown.
By putting these things into perspective, you can help yourself attract money
How much and why do you want to make money? You want to be healthier; how much weight would you like to lose, and why? You want the ideal relationship — what, in your opinion, makes the ideal partner, and why? We can begin to paint a picture of what success looks like and how we might get there by being brutally honest with ourselves.
However, circumstances may change along the way. You may encounter things along the way that cause you to question your life’s narrative and whether you are even on the right path. Most importantly, we can only find answers to these questions if we take action.
So, how can living abundantly help you attract money rather than simply chasing it?
First, let us consider what we mean by abundance. I like to compare abundance to nature, the world’s natural phenomenon that never ceases to amaze me. Nature, when you think about it, is also unstoppable. Long after humans have left this world, they will always find a way to survive. Abundance is an unstoppable force. It is, in the end, the natural order of things.
Living abundantly entails understanding how to attract success and living from a place of abundance
This is true regardless of what you want to see in your reality. We cannot expect to enjoy consistent success unless we embody abundance. To live a life of abundance means to operate from a place of expansion rather than contraction. But what exactly does it all mean?
With so much fear and anxiety in the air these days, you could argue that our emotional state is more vulnerable than ever. As the world continues to close in on us, feelings of doubt, blame, and shame threaten to keep us from reaching our full potential.
For obvious reasons, living abundantly to attract money is easier said than done
Much of it is related to the unconscious mind and accessing that all-powerful space within. Our thoughts lead to choices, and our choices lead to actions, the majority of which are made unconsciously. We can begin to align our unconscious mind with consciously chosen outcomes by intentionally engaging with our quality of thought and developing a relationship on this same plane. Only then will we be able to express our true ideas, choices, and desire for abundance.
You need a method to overcome resistance. You can unlock that abundant life by breaking down those invisible barriers with a four-step process.
Acceptance is the act of accepting responsibility for one’s actions. First, we acknowledge that we are the creators of our story. Everything that has happened up to this point is the result of our conscious and unconscious choices. We can make decisions from a place of truth here.
Recognize the act of realizing that you can’t make honest decisions from a place of deception. It is about becoming more present with ourselves to make choices that are powerful enough to effect real change. Are you being true to yourself right now? Is the end goal, as you see it, truly what your heart desires?
Gratitude: the act of acknowledging that everything we experience is the result of our expectations. Much earlier in our journey, we are invited to welcome in gratitude. Feeling grateful for something in advance can be a catalyst for change because it is the most powerful embodiment of positive expectation.
Pay some attention: the act of reflecting on the fact that we are all human. We reject the idea of perfectionism and accept that we will make mistakes from time to time. This only facilitates progress. When we stray from our path, we must pull ourselves back with grace and self-love so that we can keep moving forward.
We must learn to be compassionate to ourselves. While doing so, we must keep in mind that such change may be part of a long-term strategy. Rome was not built in a day, and neither should your entrepreneurial vision. Slow and steady wins the race; once you’ve mastered that momentum, you’ll be set for life.
Coming from a place of truth and patience is thus essential for taking those small but critical steps toward your goal. Good things will naturally follow if you learn to live abundantly in all aspects of your life. Whether it’s money, health, or happy relationships, abundance opens up endless possibilities. Only then can you truly enjoy an abundant, joyful, purpose-driven existence — and all the riches that life has to offer.
