“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”
– Maya Angelou
Your attitude plays an important role in attracting money into your life or driving it away.
If you grew in an environment that undermined self-esteem and lacked motivation or ambition, it would be harder for you to attract money.
If you believe that you don’t deserve to be wealthy, or think that money is filthy, you probably feel that you don’t deserve to have enough money, even if you consciously wish you had more.
With a negative attitude toward money, you will not try hard to get it, you won’t pay attention to opportunities, and might even make some errors of judgment that would you cause you to lose money.
On the other hand, if your attitude is positive, and you are open and willing to have it in your life, you will attract money into your life in various ways.
Here is an excerpt from the book Visualize and Achieve, addressing the attitude toward money:
“It is rather funny to hear people say how much they want money and wish they had more, yet, in the deep recesses of their subconscious mind, where it counts most, they repel any opportunity to improve their situation.
It is difficult to attract money, if there is a negative attitude about it. You cannot attract something that deep in your heart you despise. This is a most common attitude for many people. They desire money, but their attitude is negative and therefore repellent.
If you want to attract money, you have first to get rid of all negative thoughts and attitude about it. A habit of many years has to change.”
There are several techniques, which can help you change your attitude about money, and one of them is the technique of repeating of affirmations.
By repeating affirmations aimed for changing your attitude toward money, your subconscious mind will eventually accept them as true, and a negative attitude will gradually be replaced by a positive attitude.
Here are a few affirmations for achieving a positive attitude toward money:
“I deserve to possess money.”
“I have the right to have money.”
“Money is a useful tool.”
“Money can improve my life.”
“I am very comfortable with having money in my account.”
“Money is following into my life in harmonious ways.”
You will find many more affirmations in the book Affirmations Words with Power.
