Money and Perception
There is no doubt that what we experience is a reflection of our thoughts and beliefs. When it comes to the law of attraction and money the premise stays the same.
Every single person learns the value of a dollar from their parents and family members. For many people these beliefs, even if erroneous stay with us throughout our life.
For many the ideas that were formed about money in our childhood are very hard to change.
Most people are taught that money is very hard to obtain, yet it in reality it is ever-present.
I can recall my own mother using the phrase “ do I look like Rockefeller?, although she only applied this sentiment to really expensive items, I can still recall that phrase being said in her voice to this day.
Think about how many of these traits we are passing on to our own children today!
There is no questions that statements like this are predicated by fear. It may come as a startling realization that it is the fear of being without; a lack of financial resources.
Fear of the future is no way to live in the present and it is by no means the way to monetary abundance.
Thinking of money as scarce and unattainable can only lead you to realizing that fact. Money will indeed become scarce.
Thinking of money as impossible to amass will can only lead you to missing every positive action step that will lead to monetary abundance.
Money is everywhere, it is all around us constantly. No matter your present circumstance or how little of it that is perceived. It is always there in quantity.
Change in Perception:
Consider, if you will, someone living in a low rent high rise. Most of us would perceive that person as being poor, and money in that area as being scarce. Those people would be lumped into the low income demographic.
Now consider how how much that building cost to build when it was first planned, think about how much the land is worth, think about the amount of money that building generates as a whole instead of focusing on one single unit.
How much does that seemingly low income building generate in cash flow for utilities, repair companies ,trades and the like? How much does it generate in maintenance fees? Some one has a job taking care of the grass, the snow, etc.
The person living in that situation may feel as though money is scarce, but in reality nothing could be farther from the truth.
Anyone who is not in a monetary position that seems favourable to them at this present moment, must realize that money is a river, it can never remain in a static state and that it is as available to them as much as it is to anyone else. All they have to do is reach into the stream and cup their hand and lift it up to have some, much like drinking from that stream.
Now, the negative person – the naysayer would say something like ,“ that is easier said than done”.
But it is really that hard?
The answer to that question is in all reality, it is as hard as you believe it to be.
If you are in that situation and you continue to focus on the scarcity, then that’s all you can see. You can’t see the money that is encompassing. You will only be focusing on the problem, not the solution.
Shifting focus on the positive would require considering all the money that is generated by the whole of the situation.
Then you can get to work on the real details, the positive action that will lift you out of that situation and into a better life. The solution could be right in front of you.
Again, this leads us to the “what can I do that will improve someones life?” idea.
What some call the creative method. When we start to think of obtaining money in this fashion it brings us into an “all things are possible” reality, regardless of your current savings, education or means at that very moment.
Possibility is upon you.
Examine and note your monetary beliefs
Question which monetary beliefs are yours
Question which beliefs are conditioned
Never focus on scarcity
