It can be challenging to create abundance when you are struggling with a lot of negative thoughts about money. You are probably already aware that you need to stay focused on abundance in order to create abundance, by taking control of your thoughts and developing an “abundance mentality” to replace your old “scarcity mentality”.
But exactly how are you supposed to do this? When those old, scarcity-focused thoughts keep popping up in your mind, how should you handle them?
Developing an abundance mentality can be achieved best by the power of repetition and persistence. Don't disregard the “persistence” part of that formula; it's important! A lot of people don't realize that they have to put forth quite a bit of effort to change their thoughts at first, and once they've done that consistently for a few days, THEN the process gets much easier. But you have to work on it consistently for a little while first.
To get you started, here is a simple two-step plan for developing an abundance mentality:
First, it's important to use the power of repetition to your advantage. Take a sheet of paper or an index card, and write this statement on it: “I am abundant in every way.” Carry this slip of paper with you over the next few days, and say the statement out loud many times each day. Each time you say the words, do your best to tune into the FEELINGS that they inspire. What does it really feel like to BE abundant in every way? Does that thought make you feel uplifted, happy, free, excited? Stay tuned into these feelings for a few minutes each time you recite the statement.
Next step: Make sure you don't accidentally contradict your new abundance mentality.
Be sure you don't complain about money, or get sucked into feeling frustrated about your financial situation, and be sure you don't invest ANY of your attention or energy to financial problems whatsoever. Keep in mind that you will be tempted to do so – after all, it's a habit! But it's a habit you'll have to start breaking as quickly as you can. If you don't, you'll find that your results in creating abundance are less than good. Essentially you'll be splitting your energy between your old scarcity mentality and your new abundance mentality, but you can't have it both ways.
So, if you happen to catch yourself complaining about money, stop immediately and say your abundance mentality statement again: “I am abundant in every way.” If you happen to catch yourself worrying about money, say the abundance mentality statement again: “I am abundant in every way.” If you start feeling jealous about someone else's good fortune, say the statement yet again. Keep saying the statement over and over again, and it will begin to sink in and form a strong abundance mentality.
Does that seem too simple to you? It really IS simple! You'll have to put forth some decent effort at the beginning, but in a short period of time you'll start to see the results. Just keep in mind that when it comes to creating abundance, you have to be consistent and persistent. If you aren't, your results are going to show that lack of commitment.
