Whether you agree or not, money is a form of energy which is always in motion.
I believe this is why money is called a ‘currency’, because like the powerful current that moves the oceans, energy of money is always moving.
Money then is always moving towards or away from each of us, depending on our energy and relationship with it.
Essentially, you are the attractor factor in your life. Given the ‘right’ mindset, you have the magnetic power to attract the money that you desire to make your life work.
Most people simply don’t believe this.
Instead, they see money as exclusive and elusive. They believe it is ‘the way’ rather than ‘the means’ to the way.
This distorted perception promotes the idea that they must chase after money, as opposed to having money chase after them.
The key point here is money only facilitates. You cannot eat the money or use it to keep you warm.
As such, money is a medium of exchanging its value for the value of goods and services, such as food, clothing etc.
Yet, some people seem to effortlessly attractor money while others seem to repel money.
Consider the notion that only two per cent of the people in the world own 98 per cent of the wealth, while 98 per cent of the people own only two per cent of the wealth.
What accounts for this?
A clue may lie in this quote by financial expert Suze Orman, who said, ‘Respect and power attract money, disrespect and powerlessness repel it.”
If this statement holds water, then the real question is about our sense of power or powerlessness.
So often, we hear people say that money gives you power, when in truth, its having the power within that attracts the money.
Look at folks like Donald Trump, who made millions of dollars, lost it and then somehow cleverly attracted it again.
Are there some special characteristics that make persons like Donald Trump magnets for money, while John and Jane Q. Public seem to cause money to run away from them?
Here’s how Charles Haanel answers this question in his book, ‘The Master Key System’: “Why should some men realise their ambitions easily, others with difficulty, and still others not at all? The cause cannot be physical, else the most perfect men, physically, would be the most successful. The difference therefore must be mental – must be in the mind; hence mind must be the creative force, must constitute the sole difference between men. It is mind, therefore, which overcomes environment and every other obstacle in the path of men.”
Alas, we have the answer to life success and power.
It is all in the power of the mind and the quality of mind we develop. Just imagine that the courage to develop your mind is all it takes to become a money magnet!
This truth levels the success playing field. Anyone then, who chooses to improve the quality of their mind, can become the master of their lives. Because before you can master any money, you must master your mind.
If you think for one second you can get around the laws of life, think again. You cannot dupe life. You get out only what you put in. Your life will be equal to the quality of the mind you build.
If you desire a better life – more money, more possibility; then work on developing your mind. It is a surefire way to attract not just cash money, but all of the resources that you need.
Indeed, poverty is more about poor mindedness. Be mindful not to surrender your power over to the money. If you are always chasing behind money, it is a clear sign that money is running away from you.
Stop the chase and contemplate. What do you believe about money? Why does it seem to be running away from you? What can you do to better develop your mind?
Despite your best efforts, you cannot gain control over any substance to which you already feel inferior. People like Donald Trump are not any ‘luckier’, or not necessarily smarter. They are simply more aware of their mind power and invest in the continued development of their mind.
From leader to leader, remember you have unlimited power. You are your life attractor factor. It produces according to the quality of the seeds you plant in your mind. Make today the day that you develop your mind to live the life that you love.
