Where are all the millionaires?

Where are all the millionaires?
What will it take for my money to grow?

500 million people watched ‘The Secret’ so why are there not 500 million millionaires?

The amazing thing is, it’s possible.

It’s okay to be interested in the knowledge within ‘The Secret’ and follow the Law of Attraction but being interested does not make a millionaire. You have to be committed to making the shifts and changes in your life that will allow the abundance to reach you.

I truly believe that your thoughts can become things but it’s more than just believing in yourself and faking it until you make it. It’s so hard to find inspiration on your own so you need to commit to finding the right mentors for you. I have never spoken to my mentors personally but I regularly find inspiration and courage from people like Mike Dooley, John Assaraf, Wayne Dyer, Joe Vitale, Sarah Prout, Christie Mary Sheldon and Steven Aitchison. Watching vidoes and reading their books has really helped me focus and stay committed to changing my life for the better, even if it’s in baby steps.

I realise that there has been scientific evidence to confirm that using affirmations can help us to a more abundant life. The problem for me was that the affirmations I was using felt so far gone from my reality that it felt like I was re-affirming the lack I had in my life.

For example –

I AM FINANCIALLY FREE – A bit hard to believe when you’ve eaten beans on toast for the last 3 days and the elastic on your favourite pair of knickers has snapped and you can’t even afford to replace them until next pay day. Oh Aye, and I almost forgot that one of your bairns has a birthday party to go to this weekend so you will have to buy a gift. And so it goes on…….

I AM CONFIDENT AND INDEPENDENT – Not the easiest thing to feel and believe when you keep thinking about all the bad decisions you have made in the past. Nothing seems to go your way and have not been able to keep a promise to your children that you will take them on a fantastic holiday abroad this year. You need to rely on the governments Working Tax Credits to top up your income otherwise you would be eating toast without the beans!

These are just a couple of examples but these are things that I would really love to feel for real. So, it got me thinking about how I should say these affirmations in a way that works better for me. One of my mentors has suggesting saying it this way – I AM IN THE PROCESS OF BEING FINANCIALLY FREE. At first I thought this was fantastic but doesn’t the universe always give us what we want? Wouldn’t that mean that I would never reach financial freedom as I would always be in the process of reaching it?

I’d also ask the universe “Why do I never seem to have any money? Just like I’ve said, the universe would continue to show me reasons why I never seemed to have any money by things like appliances around the house breaking down, the fridge started freezing all the food and had to be replaced as it was unfixable. Getting a flat tyre on the way home from work. And it goes on ……….

I’ve discovered a better way to use my affirmations and not only is it believable to me, I feel empowered and so I’m also raising my vibration so feel really good when I say them.

I AM DOING WHAT I CAN TO BE FINANCIALY FREE

I AM DOING WHAT I CAN TO BE MORE CONFIDENT AND INDEPENDENT EVERY DAY

I no longer ask the universe “Why do I never seem to have any money” I rephrase this and do not make it a question, instead I turn it into a demand.

SHOW ME WHAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE TO HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY

The universe will have to show me the way. It’s the law!

Stop worrying about how it can happen.

 

More Faith Less Fear

This is my very first blog! It’s been a number of months since I started the process of working from home for myself and creating my online business. What a self journey I have been on so far. The truth is, I have had all the tools I needed to be up and running for ages but, although I love this new journey, until very recently I had been worrying too much about how I could make this a success.

I have now realised that always thinking about ‘how’ I could manage things in my life has held me back. The fear I had about how I could make it work overtook my faith in myself.

This is how I used to think – I’d wonder, “Have I bitten off more than I can chew?” I mean, I am bringing up 2 bairns on my own, I work part time so don’t have a full time income coming in to the household. The girls are growing all the time so always need new clothes. How can I pay for these clothes and everything else they need?  I’ve agreed to go on a week’s holiday abroad this year with my friends and all the bairns and flights have to be paid soon. How can I find the money to pay for the flights? My car needs MOT’d. How much is that going to cost? My cooker is not working properly. How can I afford a new cooker right now? And to add to all of this, I have started my own online  business but as yet can’t afford to pay for advertising. How can I make this business a success? “AAAAAHHHHH! FFS!” Do you follow me?

What I am trying to do now is stop thinking “How” I will be able afford all of this. I’m wasting my time and energy on “How” and it’s not sending out the right vibes and signals to the universe. Isn’t it true that if we want something so much and take the right steps when we see an opportunity, then anything is achievable? I have to believe that I can make it happen and only focus on the end result. Forget about the in between stuff and how I will get there. The getting there will all fall in to place if I believe in myself.

“How” is not the first question I should be asking myself. If I concentrated more on “Why” I want to change my lifestyle and enjoy having my own business, I will then keep my focus on the journey ahead.

The next thing I should be asking myself is “What” do I want? A vey high income working for myself, a better lifestyle and so on.

Then “Who” can make this happen? Yes it’s obviously me that can make this happen but I feel that with the help of the mentors I found when I started this new journey, I am not alone so I can get guidance from others to help me. If you are like me and want to earn money working for yourself but don’t know where to begin to make it happen, click HERE.

Then finally the “How” you create a better income and better lifestyle will all come together.

This is a more constructive thinking cycle. I plan to stick to this way of thinking more often and focus my thoughts and energy on the end results.

With respect,

About Me

AnnieI asked myself the question “What would I love?”

My truthful answer is – time and financial freedom.

Hi, I’m Annie. I am very fortunate to have a lovely happy life but….. For a long time I have had a longing to want more. A desire to experience the nicer things in life and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

I am a single Mum and earn a part time salary, I thought my earning opportunities were limited as I need to work around school hours. I also thought that my career was limited as I don’t have a degree or come from a corporate background and the only skills I have are life skills, learned from the school of life! Fortunately, I discovered that all I needed to create a better lifestyle is my laptop, internet connection and my desire to want a more abundant life for my family and I.

When the girls were in bed I often searched online for ‘something better’. Not that long ago I found an online business opportunity that let me have access to the best training and fantastic mentors. I can also ‘Earn while I learn’ and the best part of all is that not only am I learning new business skills, I am learning so much more about myself and my confidence is growing all the time.

I’m on an exciting new journey to creating my time and financial freedom. Would you like to join me?

See you on the inside!

Take care, Annie. x
