Do you think earning a higher income is hard? If you do, ask yourself why? Where did you get the idea that wealth was difficult to achieve? Who taught you that? Why do you choose to hang onto this believe? In what way does it serve you today? I know for myself, when I used to believe that wealth and success were beyond my reach that having that belief was strangely comforting. If wealth was out of my reach, then it wasn’t my fault that I was stuck in a job I didn’t like woefully under-earning and underachieving. The whole situation was beyond my control and that let me off the hook for taking responsibility for my life. Even as I complained about my situation I never had to really stop and look at what had brought me to that point.

Then I discovered the Law of Attraction and all of that flew out the window. I had to face the fact that it was ALL my doing AND my responsibility. After the initial shock wore off I realized that being responsible for myself and my results was actually amazingly freeing and empowering. I got to change all of the stuff I didn’t like about my life. I could DO something and BE who I was truly meant to be.

Now, not that many years later, I’m living a life that I truly love and embrace every day and feel an overarching sense of gratitude for every single bit of it. What am I trying to say to you with this story? The secret to creating a prosperity mindset is to simply take responsibility for your life and the results you have already achieved whether you are currently satisfied with them or not. Know that I don’t mean that you should blame yourself for these results. If you aren’t completely happy with your life know that it is within your power to change it and that although you created it you did the best you could at the time and taking even a single second to berate yourself for any negative results that occurred is counterproductive to your prosperity mindset.

Look inward and open your heart and mind to the possibility that you can earn more and that it can feel effortless. Maybe that hasn’t been your experience so far. So what? All it means is that you haven’t found the right inspiration, resources and support systems to make it happen for yourself yet. Once you decide that you can earn more and that it can be a joyful journey, you’ll attract everything you need to help you achieve your dreams.

Take a few minutes to look around at your life and identify some of the people/actions/things that support your prosperity and some of the people/actions/things that don’t. Make a list for each with up to 10 items on each list. Now, go out and have more of what supports your prosperity and weed out what doesn’t. Sound simple? It really is simple once you really “get” on an emotional (versus just an intellectual) level that you really can create the life you dream of living. That can be your life NOW.
