My life is a bubble; but how much solid cash it costs to keep that bubble floating. ~Logan Pearsall Smith
When we appreciate the money that we have-no matter how little, and no matter how simple-we create a vibration of prosperity and an attitude of power.
This theme percolates in our subconscious mind, which is then stimulated to come up with money-making ideas and set in motion ways that we can prosper.
While it is easy to appreciate people and places and possessions, we all feel somewhat challenged to appreciate how we finance our lives. No matter how much or how low our funds, it never seems enough-because there is always more that we need and could use.
Ironically, the less we have and the more we express thankfulness and appreciativeness for what we do have, the more we begin the process of prospering.
Our appreciation opens up doors of opportunity, for it is a catalyst for further financial growth. Our sense of enjoying whatever wealth we possess invites us to venture boldly into more promising enterprises.
Of course the natural tendency when our funds are low and our expenses high is to worry and despair-neither of which do us any good at all.
Experiencing a distraught feeling is a signal for our subconscious to choose helplessness over initiative, apathy over ingenuity, and resignation over hope.
When the subconscious is thus disempowered, we stultify our imagination and rob ourselves of the inner power we need to transform outer circumstances.
Collectively, over time, your general feeling about money create your mental blueprint of how much you want to have in your life.
If your blueprint is set to a low amount, then you'll filter out information about how to improve your circumstances. You'll literally fail to see income-producing opportunities right in front of you. You'll subsist on loans and debt.
Conversely, if your blueprint is set to a high amount, then you'll actively seek out income and you'll see things that other people miss. Your imagination will be alive with the possibility of creative thinking. You'll see money for what it is-a medium of exchange-and a way for you to create new products and services that are revenue generating.
Poor people spend most of their time trying to stem losses, while rich people spend most of their time trying to make gains, but the difference in their blueprints and how they filter information is based on their depth of gratitude for what they do have.
“Wealth, ” said Benjamin Franklin, “is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it. ”
