1. Know What You Want
Don't just think you want something. Know it! Most of us know exactly what we don't want in our lives. We have to become just as clear about what it is we do want. Knowing that you want to make $10,000 a month or more is much clearer than just knowing you want more money.
2. Listen to Your Gut
Pay attention to what your gut or intuition is telling you and act on it. Often we ignore the many signals our inner selves give us or say to ourselves, "That's crazy, I can't do that." Your intuition will lead you where you need to go in order to get the money help you need...if you let it.
3. Use Positive Money Affirmations
Write a short positive affirmation that states your money goal. For example: "$10,000 easily flows into my life each month." Click here to find out how to use affirmations effectively and here for examples of prosperity affirmations.
4. Visualize Your Goal
See yourself living the life you would lead if money were no object. Create a moving picture of all the things you would be, do and have when your money goals are realized. Allow it to become so real in your mind's eye that you actually experience the feelings of safety, joy and freedom that having money brings to you.
5. Get In The Flow
Step into the flow of the Universe and ask for money help. Whatever power or deity you subscribe to, ask for some guidance. Get quiet at some point each and every day and ask to be alert to your highest good, ask to be in the right place at the right time, ask to know what your life purpose is and how you can best serve others'. Ask and ye shall receive ;o)
6. Get Moving
Wishing just ain't gonna make it so. You need to take action! I know from personal experience that making changes is often uncomfortable and sometimes even downright terrifying. Even when I know these changes are for the good.
Ralph Waldo Emerson stated, "It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, 'Always do what you are afraid to do'." A great book by Susan Jeffers says the same thing but in a different way, "Feel the fear and do it anyway!" The great thing is, once you take even a small step towards your goal, the Universe will place opportunities in your path.
7. Listen To Your Self-Talk
Pay close attention to what your mind is mumbling to you. We all have some pretty heavy negative programming going on up there, especially where money is concerned. A question I ask myself often when I notice that my self-talk is negative is, "Do I really want what I just thought to manifest in my life within the next 3 minutes?" If I don't, I cancel the thought and replace it with a more positive, uplifting one.
8. Ride the Waves
Life isn't always a calm sea. Sometimes we have to hold on tight and ride the waves that threaten to overtake us. Use these times to look for opportunities, because they are always there. It's easy to blame circumstances when things get tough but blaming or despairing over something doesn't move us forward to where we want to be. As Carl Sagan said, "It's better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."
9. De-clutter Your Life
Clean up! Not just your home or office but your relationships both personal and professional. You can't work at your best if your life is full of clutter. It may sound harsh but let go of those people who suck the energy right out of you, leaving you feeling like a wet dishrag. Throw out anything in your home or office that you haven't used for over a year. You'll be amazed at how light and creative you feel once you've de-cluttered your life!
10. Nurture Your Passions
Love gardening? Love motorcycles? Whatever your passions are, nurture them. Think you can't make a living at something you're passionate about? You'd be surprised! It's easy and fun to build a business based upon your passion for a subject! This site can show you how to easily do it! Our passions reveal to us our life purpose. It's our inner selves letting us know what will bring money, love and joy into our lives.
Use any or all of these tips to increase the flow of money into your life and increase the flow of happiness you experience on a daily basis.
