Are you finding it difficult to attract the money and prosperity you want? It's a familiar refrain: you've been a diligent student of self improvement, you've been studying the law of attraction, you're putting the teachings into practice, but yet it still just isn't working.

Why is it so difficult and what are you doing wrong? In fact, I received the following email from one of my readers recently:

"Warren, what is your definition of money and how do you picture it? The reason I ask is because I have tried so many different home study and coaching programs that tell you how to think and begin to manifest wealth, but they just don't work for me. And no one seems to really want to take me there. I'm not saying that their programs have no value, but they don't seem to ever really complete the picture. How does someone like me, who's still not able to get it, get over the hump? I am working really hard and I want to create more abundance in my life, but I haven't been able to make any of these programs work for me."

Let's attempt to address this sentiment by considering the following points.

Point 1: Money is just money

For me, money is merely energy. It's a medium of exchange. There's nothing good nor bad about money, but rather it just is what it is and is a means by which I'm able to acquire things or services I desire, or by which I'm able to contribute.

Debt, by the way, is the same. It's neither good nor bad, it's just debt. How we feel about it and what we think about it can make the debt we may carry feel like a good or bad thing, but those are all feelings that are based on the mindset we hold around the topic.

Point 2: Money is not what you really want

In my experience, this is where people get off track most often. They put there focus on some amount of money and focus on attracting the money, but the money isn't what they really want.

When I'm visualizing about what I want, if I take the time to peel back the layers of the onion, it's never the money. Yet, this is a trap I catch myself falling into often - I'll find myself focused on the money rather than what I really want. And what I really want is ultimately to be able to experience and feel something.

For example, I want to be able to take my family to Disney World and watch the enthusiasm of my kids as they ride Space Mountain. That's the feeling of joy I want to have and that's what lights me up. It may require some money to make that happen, but it's the experience at Disney World that I'm after and that's what I really want. And when I picture the experience in my mind, it triggers real emotion for me. Which is exactly what I'm after.

Point 3: The only person who can change your mindset is you

The challenge with all of the "how to think and get wealthy" programs (including mine), is not that someone is not willing to take you there, but rather it's that no one can take you there other than yourself. And there's the rub ...

I know I often catch myself just wishing someone would take me by the hand and "show me how" and just fast track my journey for me. But of course that never works because the journey is 99% mindset and without the mindset, the mechanics just don't have the same impact. And the only person who can change my mindset is me, but it takes a ton of effort, patience and persistence every day, even when it's not obvious that it's working or having an impact.

In my opinion, this is the second reason why most people "fail" at this. It's difficult to stay focused on what you want when all your present results or circumstances are to the contrary. It takes discipline and will power to keep your mind focused on where you intend to go rather than where you are. In fact, it may well be the most difficult work you will ever undertake.
