Have Power & Freedom With Money

By: Melanie Fine

When I talk to people who are worried about their money situation or feel like it is hopeless, I ask them what are they grateful for? Sometimes they say "Nothing! Nothing in my life goes well. I am always struggling. I can't seem to makes ends meet!" Others say, "Hmmmm I don't know", while others say "I am grateful for my family, but everything else sucks." What is interesting is that being grateful every day for something can have a dramatic effect on your bottom line.

The book and DVD "The Secret", by Prime Time Productions in Australia, has become an international blowout success. It has been seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, The Ellen Degeneres Show and pretty much every morning news show out there. I am amazed by how I can't go into a bookstore or have a conversation anymore without someone mentioning "The Secret". (If you are one of the few people who haven't heard of it, you can check it out at www.thesecret.tv). The principle premise in the "The Secret" is The Law of Attraction. Said simply, it is that 'like attracts like'. You can see this law in nature, in relationships, and in success. Have you ever wondered how successful people continually have success in their life? In my own life I see it with my friends who are positive, upbeat and successful.

They attract positive, upbeat and successful people into their lives. They also attract success to their lives. People who are grateful for what they have, attract more of what they are grateful for.

Whether you believe it or not, one part of it rings true and makes a lot of sense to me. Being grateful is more fun and feels much better then not being grateful. So if we apply the Law of Attraction to your money and being grateful for it, it goes without saying that you will attract more of it into your life. If you focus on debt or chaos with your money you will attract more debt and chaos into your life. This is why people in debt never seem to get out of debt! If you are sick and complain and feel horrible all the time, guess what you have, sickness, complaints and horrible feelings! If you have love and happiness in your life and you focus on and are grateful for it, you will have more love and happiness coming your way! If you are thankful for what money and opportunities you have, it goes to say that more money and opportunities will come into your life. You will be surprised by what can happen.

So if you focus on what you are grateful for every day and celebrate every win you have, according to the Law of Attraction you will have more of what you are grateful for! This makes sense. Think about the last time you did something for someone and they were really grateful to you? Aren't you more inclined to give them more? Their gratitude reinforces your giving.

All this to say: focus on and appreciate what you have. Actually put a structure in place to be grateful every day. Each day write it down in a journal, talk to yourself about it in the shower, tell three people a day, or make it a practice at your family breakfast or dinner table. Be thankful for your family, your home, your money, your job, your friends, your resources. Try this on: be thankful for things you don't yet/even have, and soon your bottom line will increase as you attract it all into your life!

"None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselvesFree Reprint Articles, and spend without fear of bankruptcy."-Fred De Witt Van Amburgh (born 1866).
