Unless you live under a rock you have heard the moaning and seen the hand wringing over the economy. Perhaps you too have spent more time then you choose to admit worrying about what might happen. You are surrounded with negative messages and fear. It is easy to allow that worry to fill not only your mind but your body as well.

Most of us have heard about the Law of Attraction so we know that what we think about and more importantly what we feel about is what we attract into our lives. So what happens when a whole country is feeling about the same thing...specifically worrying about a depressed economy? Wow! Not pretty. It is so easy to get dragged along in the current of worried thoughts.

The good news is that you have a choice. YOU choose what you focus on and feel. Not everyone will attract economic despair into their lives. There are plenty for whom this downturn will be the opportunity they use to build a wildly successful business or create streams of passive income. There are many who will use this time as the beginning of their financial abundance and success. The difference in these people is what they choose to focus on. They choose to focus on abundance, opportunities and to be thankful for the blessings they have.

How do you choose to use this economic time? Will you look for opportunities and expect them everywhere? Will you find things to be grateful for every day?

Here are three simple steps to help you focus on what you want and attract abundance into your life. The first step is to stop watching the news. If you must, read the news rather then watch it so it is less sensational. What I find from skipping the news is that I feel so much better about what is going on in my world. Besides if there is something I must know my friends will keep me informed. If this seems like too big of a step just skip watching the news for a week and see how you feel. The second step to keep your focus on the positive is to spend a few minutes each day listing at least five things you are thankful for. Write them down in a journal or just state them out loud. The third step is to catch yourself worrying. When you do, replace the worry with a simple affirmation. It may be..."I am well cared for." "My life is full of abundance." or "I see wonderful opportunities daily." Just short thoughts which you can repeat over and over until you feel calm.

You do not have to join in with the fear and chaos around you. Instead your life can be a peaceful oasis if you choose to focus on what you want and the abundance you already have. No matter what the economy you will find opportunities and growth around you. So get started today!
