Keep this one thing in mind: It’s within your power to make this time the opportunity of a lifetime.
Those of you who are familiar with the basic principles of the Law of Attraction know that putting attention on a lack of money will only lead to greater lack. You must focus on prosperity if that’s what you want to manifest in your life.
However, a lot of people ask me, “How can I focus my attention on wealth, when I’m bombarded with news of the serious economic problems in the world right now?”
My first answer to that is: Stop doing that!
What do I mean??? Stop subjecting yourself to the bombardment of doom and gloom.
- Stop watching the negative news
- Stop reading the negative articles in the paper
- Stop hanging out with negative people who talk about doom and gloom
- And more importantly, YOU must stop talking, thinking, and worrying about it.
People see their 401k funds getting smaller, hear about more home foreclosures, and see the jobless rate continue to increase. “This is the reality I live in,” they will say, “…so how can I possibly bring wealth into my life during these times?”
My answer: Choose to!
Think about this: just as a booming economy does not guarantee you will be wealthy, a so-called “recession” does not mean that you cannot thrive financially. Let me assure you that your prosperity is entirely in your control – always!
Yes, it’s more difficult to keep your attention on wealth when others seem so intent on focusing on scarcity. But if your positive outlook depends on the “collective reality” of other people, you can never become the master of your life.
Think of this as a time of great opportunity! You might have been doing well when the stock market was booming, but maybe you were only “going along for the ride”. Were you creating your reality through your own intention, or were you simply following the will of others?
Now you know that if want a prosperous future, you must create it yourself. See this as the moment you once and for all declare your independence and seize control of your life.
Again, stop watching the news! You’re now being inundated with stories about the state of the economy. Watch a nature program to remind you of the world’s beauty, or a comedy that makes you laugh. This will put you in a positive state of mind.
When you can’t avoid hearing negative news, remind yourself that this simply serves to provide you with contrast. Let it point you in the direction of what you do want, and put your undivided attention on prosperity.
Think of all the good things you have in your life now. Look at the beautiful world that surrounds you. Feel grateful for this. Then think of the happy, prosperous future that awaits you. That future is actually here already – it’s just waiting for you to decide it belongs to you.
Take control of your life… you’re not subject to the whims of any economic situation until you allow yourself to be. Great economic times won’t guarantee your success, just as “rough” economic times don’t guarantee your economic failure.
YOU get to choose.
Just found your blog this evening when looking for some new reading material. I’m enjoying it. I SO agree with you about not focusing on all the negative economic news swirling around. The moment the pundits starting talking about looming recession / depression and all that gloom and doom — I tuned ’em out. Oh, I catch myself some days falling into the “bad times” mindset but I’m pretty good about “changing the channel” fairly quickly.
Not that I’m impressed a lot, but this is a lot more than I expected for when I found a link on Furl telling that the info is quite decent. Thanks.
Another good stuff from Antonio here. Your posts are so relevant and uplifting.
Yeah, I choose to dwell on prosperity. That’s what I’m gonna do. Please keep this up! thanks.
Just when everyone is thinking negatively, it’s really amazing to see someone rise above these “crisis” and go about achieving what they want out of life. That’s when we could use the advise and presence of like-minded individuals who look into the future way beyond what this current situation is offering. Thanks because you’re one of them Antonio.
I think that it was on your blog that I read that when you feel negative thoughts coming – just think about the things that you are grateful for.
Also I have found that in the midst of the “bad” news, there have been stories that have good news in them too!
There are still people prospering in the world and there is still a lot of wealth in the world too.
I was watching Donald Trump on Larry King and he said that now is the time to think like a champion!
Great stuff! I could not agree more strongly with you regarding stop watching the news! The sky is the limit and prosperity is available to all of us and our definition of what it is is not necessarily the same for everyone.
