Carry Money With You

A lot of people get into the habit of using credit cards. That's not necessarily good, bad, right or wrong. Credit cards are like electricity: handled well, they can do great things...handled poorly, they can be harmful.

But CASH.....ah, cash is a different story.

When you reach into your pocket and feel a big wad of bills, it makes you feel more prosperous. More confident. Like you've got things under control.

So, here's the Prosperity Tip: go withdraw as much money out of the bank as you can and carry it around for a day. Walk through the mall and look at things you like and say, "I could actually buy that right now. I've got the money in my pocket right now to take that home."

As prosperity starts to flow in your life, increase the amount. One friend of mine (who shall remain nameless) never carries less than $3,000 in his wallet.

Thirty crisp $100 bils.

How do you think YOU would feel today if you had a big wad of cash in your pocket? Try it and see!

Happy Holidays!

Be A Bigger Tipper

I had to learn to be a good tipper. I confess that -- for the early years of my adult life -- I skimped on giving a decent tip to someone who'd just served me.

Then I discovered something. One day, I was experiencing a little extra cash in my life and I decided to give a crazy-big tip to my server. SEVEN DOLLARS! (This was about $4 more than I normally would have tipped."

And a funny thing happened: I felt rich! You can't believe the feeling of wealth and abundance you can buy for just a few bucks. Even though it wasn't a lot of was my own expression of wealth and abundance in my present circumstances.

Sure enough, the Universe responded. I started making a little more money. And my tips got bigger. And I started tipping even more.

Today, 20% is automatic unless the server was extremely slack. Even then I usually leave a decent tip.

After all, tipping well is something I don't do for them. I do it for me....

Buy Fresh Flowers

People often smile a bit when I mention this one. I think it's because they don't see how this ties into the concept of a "prosperity consciousness". Or maybe I just notice their reaction because that's how I reacted when I first heard it.

Life loves life. And there's something about putting live plants and greenery in your home that seems to create a feeling of abundance.

Plus, think about how you feel when you walk into someone's home and you see that they've got fresh flowers in the living room. Or on the kitchen table.

Even something as simple as ordering flowers regularly can give you a feeling of abundance. And a feeling of abundance is what creates abundance!

Also, if you want to really apply this your florist and ask them about a standing order of fresh flowers every 10 days. You'll be creating more abundance in your home AND applying the "law of circulation" at the same time.

To your prosperity,

Where's Your Focus?

One of the core principles in attracting more abundance and wealth in your life is to adjust what you focus on.

Most people focus on what they DON'T want. The trick is to adjust your perspective so that you're focusing on what you DO want.

One way to do this is to get in the habit of asking yourself, "So, what DO you want?"

So when you catch yourself thinking about how much you dislike your job, you immediately ask, "So, what DO you want?" Answering this question will automatically force you to think about something that you want.

Just because this is a simple concept, don't overlook its power. People who constantly focus on what they don't want usually wind up attracting more of it in their lives.

Think about the ideal car...the ideal house...the ideal relationship....the ideal career....the ideal income. Keep your focus there and you'll notice that things start improving in ways that will surprise you!

One of the most powerful concepts of prosperity is the "Law of Circulation". It says that you will attract into your life that which you circulate.

You already know this to be true because you will agree with me when I say that -- if you want to have more friends, be more friendly. If you want to have more love, be more loving.

It's also true with money as well. If you want to have more money in your life, practice putting the money you have into circulation . Hoarding money like a miser only proves to the Universe that you don't expect to have any more money coming in.

Think about it: if you KNEW you had $1,000,000 arriving on Friday, would you really worry about saving that extra $2 to buy the cheap brand of spaghetti sauce?

Ask yourself: if you were wealthy right now, would you REALLY only pay the minimums on your bills? Probably not. So, act as if you're wealthy right now and go ahead and pay some extra on that bill that's due. After all, it's going to your account anyway!

Why do so many people settle for the "free" phone that comes with signing a contract with the cellphone company? Is that REALLY the phone you want? Or is it the one you're settling for? Do they make nice cellphones for everyone but you......or do they make them for you, too?

Now, am I saying that you should blow your money without any sense of consequences? Of course not. What I'm referring to is simply this: don't hoard money. When you close the valves to your spending, you'll often find that you've closed the valves to your receiving as well.

If you want to experience more money, put money into circulation! And feel GOOD about doing it!

This Is What You Chose!

FACT: You are where you are in life because this is where you've chosen to be.

Wow. That's another one that really offended me the first time I heard it. How dare this person tell me that I was living in a crappy little house with no money for rent or heat in the winter time and that I'd actually CHOSEN that for myself!

No! I didn't believe that. I had a whole list of reasons for why my life wasn't working.

The government.
My boss.
My landlord.
My negative relatives.
The economy.
Gas prices.
The Democrats
The Republicans

The list went on and on. The only problem was I wasn't on it! I really believed that everyone else had more impact on my life than me! No wonder my life wasn't working! My life was a car going down the road at 90 miles an hour and I was sitting in the passenger's seat waiting for someone to drive!

One day I woke up and realized, " matter what's going on, there's always one person at the scene of the crime....ME!" And that's the day that I realized that I was the one creating my results. No one else.

FACT: Your results in life -- in any area of life -- are a result of your actions and decisions. And those actions and decisions are the result of the thoughts you think.

Take ownership of your thoughts, actions and decisions......and you take control of your life.

Declare Yourself "In"

I was in the park awhile back and lots of kids were playing. One little girl was standing on the side just watching. I asked, "Why aren't you playing with the other kids?" She answered, "They haven't asked me to yet."

The good ending is that when I left the park she was playing and having a wonderful time. But, I couldn't help but think how many adults do the same thing when it comes to love, abundance, good health, spirituality, money, joy, etc....

So much of prosperity and abundance comes from just declaring yourself "in" the game. No need to ask for permission. It's all right there waiting for you.

See, they don't just make first-class seating for everyone BUT you...they make it for anyone who chooses it. So, all you have to do is choose "in".

Do they make luxury cars for everyone but you? Of course not. They're available for you, too.

The life you want also wants you. It's all waiting. You just have to declare yourself in the game!
