You might think that attracting prosperity sounds like a phrase that people use who thinks you need to meditate two hours a day, not eat meat and communicate with spirits with Biblical names. And while there are some new age and new thought gurus who do all of those things, actually attracting prosperity to your life is much simpler than that. You see in order for you to attract prosperity you must have needs. Which we all have. Why do I say this, needs these are demands that create action and brings about results. You cannot attract prosperity without needs and demands. My simple formula for attracting prosperity is “Needs + Demands + Action = Prosperity.
That’s not to say that it’s easy. There are a number of ways to do it wrong, which only means that you won’t attract the prosperity you deserve. Attracting prosperity begins with a change in the state of your mind. There’s no doom and gloom option when it comes to trying to bring good things into your life. You need to change the way your mind thinks and perceives things. You cannot expect to prosper if you have a negative mind about yourself. You need to see and feel yourself prosperous before you actually are. Remember a positive mind attracts positive things. Like attracts like; money attracts more money. That is why they say birds of the same feather flock together. If you do not have a written down purpose for your life it would be smart to do so before you start focusing on attracting prosperity.
Even by just attempting the methods of attracting prosperity, you start wheels turning in both your head and the universe that can help good things happen in your life. Like I mentioned earlier the first step in making good things happen for yourself is a change in your attitude and this begins with the change taking place in your mind. The bible tells us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. One of the best ways to renewing your mind is by reading. Successful people are great readers. Remember that to those that have more, more is required of them. Being prosperous or successful is not an easy task, it is a huge responsibility and you must be well prepared for it. Are you?
Instead of seeing things through a negative lens, it’s necessary to see them through a positive one. Use the analogy of a glass that’s filled halfway with water. Instead of seeing it as half-empty or half-dirty, learn to see it as half-full. If you burn your dinner, don’t see it as a ruined meal, notice that the pans will still be fine after they’re washed. If you do not do well at your first attempt don’t see it as a failure but as a first attempt in the right direction. Do not accept failure in your mind. Make adjustments and give it another shot. Often times we do not succeed at the first attempt.
This shift in perception takes you from seeing negativity and limitations and instead into seeing the positive side of everything. Attracting prosperity works on the principle that, what you believe and what you surround yourself with will attract similar things. Be careful with what you surround yourself with including your friends and associates. Don’t go through your day noticing what’s wrong with everything, you are going to attract problems but, instead make it a habit to notice only the good things. This might sound far-fetched to some people, but when you focus on being positive and on seeing the good in things, your attitude will change. Look at the bad things with a positive mind and see what that does to your life. I make it a point on a daily basis to reflect through my day and ensure that on my list I have more positive things than negatives. This does not mean that I do not see negative things I surely do but I try as much as possible to concentrate on the positives.
Once this attitude shift takes place, it becomes even easier to automatically see the positive in even a very bad situation. When you begin noticing positive things, opportunities that you would have otherwise missed if you had been focused on the negative instead make themselves known to you. In other words you open up the flood gates of blessings. You begin to attract the right ingredients for prosperity. You develop a mechanism whereby you may create for yourself health; strength; success; prosperity or any other condition which you desire.
When viewed this way, attracting prosperity seems less like some strange metaphysical system than it does good common sense. When you see an opportunity you might have missed with a more negative attitude, it’s like you’ve attracted the potential for prosperity, by seeing an opportunity where you wouldn’t have before. With a positive mind before you, opportunities are easily noticed and you can quickly take advantage of them.
Even if it was something you might have noticed before but not acted on when you had a more negative attitude, with a positive attitude you may act on it and believe that it will work in your favor. Attracting prosperity becomes second nature when you believe that good things are possible. The key to attracting prosperity is a positive mind. Keep it positive and “standout tall and be counted”.
