In the quest for creating and/or manifesting more money in their lives, I see many people making the following mistakes. Most of the time, they are not even aware that they are doing it, at least not consciously. So let’s take a look at 3 of the most self defeating mistakes people make, and then what to do instead.
Mistake #1 - They get busy figuring out how they are going to make it (wealth) happen for them. They try to think of ways to save money or work more hours in order to get more money or come up with a plan of action. In short, they get in their own way.
What to do instead: Allow. Allow. Allow. Start from the end desire. Write down what it is you are wanting to have /create and then allow the universe to bring it to you. Do only those things that you feel guided / inspired to do in the direction of your goals/ dreams. Those things that feel good, and you will be led one step at a time to your destination. Remember, focus on the end result / desire, not how you are going to get there or where it is going to come from. Don’t put limits on yourself or the universe. Stay open to possibilities and delightful surprises along the way.
Mistake #2 - They feel safe “playing small”. Playing small is comfortable. Playing big would require them to move out of their comfort zone. It may require that they put themselves out there and that can be a scary thing, so they procrastinate, or avoid or delay and do whatever it takes to put things off, for just another day, or another week, or another month, or another year, or another lifetime!
What to do instead: Decide to, as they say, feel the fear and do it anyway? Take small steps in the direction of your dreams. Do one small (or big) thing every day or week that you have been afraid to do and keep moving forward with that. Pretty soon, you will begin to feel less and less afraid and more and more confident and exited about your life as you begin to see your victories and accomplishments take shape.
Mistake #3 - They focus on what they don’t want. They are caught up in their own story of lack and limitation and they talk about it constantly to themselves and to others. They speak about how they can’t make ends meet, lament about how they are so tired of the struggle, and moan about how depressing things are. The more they do this, the more stuck, powerless and frustrated they feel.
What to do instead: Simply really! Focus on what you DO want. Choose wealth and tell yourself that nothing else is acceptable. Think, speak and act as if you are already wealthy now. Imagine your life the way you would like it to be. Start by being grateful for all of the abundance of blessings you already have in your life and focus on those. Gratitude opens doors! It paves the way to wealth and prosperity like nothing else. It can line your pockets with gold and fill your bank account quicker than a New York minute.
