The extent to which you don’t have what you want in your life is the extent to which you are resisting it.
What are you resisting?
Clarity? Success? Great health? Incredible relationships? Amazing wealth? Happiness?
If you take a quick inventory of your life today, what is missing? What is it that you want that you don’t have? What is your consistent complaint?
Do any of these sound familiar? I wish I had more money. I wish I was in better shape. I wish I knew what I’m meant to be doing with my life. I wish I had more time. I wish I had more energy.
Now take a look at where you might be resisting the exact thing that you desire.
(I’m going to use money and energy as examples as these tend to be our biggest complaints.)
If you desire more money, what resistance comes up when you think about having more money? Is there some fear around success? Or perhaps a fear that you will have to work non-stop to earn great money? Or maybe it doesn’t seem possible because no one in your family has ever made great money.
Now try to soften the resistance. Look at all the areas of your life where you are already wealthy. This could be that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, an education, a family that cares about you, friends that encourage you, and opportunities for new experiences. When we have wealth in one area of our life, we can certainly have wealth in other areas. When we bring gratitude for all that we have, we invite in even more abundance into our lives.
Our true worth is not based on the size of our bank account, the kind of car we drive, or how big our house is. Our true worth comes from within. We are pulled to grow, expand, and increase life. We are the ones who stop this. The main cause? Our thoughts and beliefs.
If you believe making money is hard, or you have to work hard for your money, or you’ll never be rich, you’re right. What you focus on expands. You create what you believe.
If you want to change your circumstances, you have to change your beliefs. You have to change the way you think and the words you use.
Notice how many times a day you say, “I can’t afford it.” Or “I’m so tired.” Or “I’ve always been overweight.” The more you say it, the more you reinforce it, and the more you see more of exactly that.
This can be challenging to grasp at first but I ask you to be willing to experiment.
Take your most common complaint and decide for ONE full day, you will NOT, not one single time, utter that complaint. I don’t care if your bank account is low or you only slept 4 hours last night, for one full day, DO NOT say I’m so broke, I don’t have enough money, I can’t afford it. Or I’m so tired. I’m exhausted. Etc.
One day. Eliminate your consistent complaint for ONE full day. At the end of the day, take a few minutes to reflect on the day. Write down what you noticed, how you felt, and what was different that day. Do it again the next day. When you start to want to complain, stop, and replace it with a softer version, such as, I am choosing not to invest in that right now. I am using my money for something else. I feel all right. I am doing well. Things are on the up. I feel good.
Nothing but good can come of this, which is even more reason to give it a go.
I can’t wait to hear about it. Send me a quick reply and tell me about your experience.
Sending you much energy and abundance,
P.S. If you’re not sure how to switch your complaint into a positive statement that resonates with you, send me your complaint and I’ll send you a few positive statements to use instead.
