I want to be wealthy. Why isn’t it happening?

The Basics:
• You’ve understood the Law of Attraction (or, you’ve got bills to pay!) and you want money. 
• When you think of wealth, it means money, a house and a car. Holidays too. 
• You may even be visualizing yourself as rich. 

The Problem:
• You’re not getting any richer. 
• You feel like using your imagination or visualizing is just “pretending”.

What you need to digest:
• Wealth does not directly mean money. Wealth is not having “alot of money” in the bank, or the house you want to live in. Become aware of the truth that wealth is having a definite, set amount of money, opportunity, options and an awareness that you can create any circumstance you want. 
• The portion of life you’re currently experiencing is not “life” or “reality” as you’re used to believing it is. It is simply the result of how you used to think. It is simply a portion of life. It’s simply an experience. Bill Gates is also experiencing a portion of life. The underlying difference is the experience. And that can be changed easily.
• All that comes to you is as a result of who you think you are.

Who do you think you are?

•Are you the story you’ve told yourself? Are you your past? Are you your bank balance? Whatever you think you are, whatever ideas you have about yourself, are determining your life right this minute. 


The Solutions:
• Feel wealthy. Your feelings are personal, intimate and they never lie. 
• Think yourself to be a millionaire, or financially independent, or earning X amount of money each month. 

Thinking what you want to think is free, but hard to do. 

•Become genuinely hungry about change. Desire to transform yourself first - and outer circumstance later. Believe you were born to life live on your own terms. Have an iron will. (Fake it, it will harden into fact soon enough). Believe in your own ability to achieve whatsoever you desire. Believe in your ability more than your education, contacts, and even actions. 

Do this for 30 days and you will not recognize yourself at the end. 

A lot of people feel like they’re victims in life, and they’ll often point to past events, perhaps growing up with an abusive parent or in a dysfunctional family. Most psychologists believe that about 85 percent of families are dysfunctional, so all of a sudden you’re not so unique. My parents were alcoholics. My dad abused me. My mother divorced him when I was six…I mean, that’s almost everybody’s story in some form or not. The real question is, what are you going to do now? What do you choose now? Because you can either keep focusing on that, or you can focus on what you want. And when people start focusing on what they want, what they don’t want falls away, and what they want expands, and the other part disappears.
—  Rhonda Byrne, The Secret

“Remember that your thoughts are the primary cause of everything. So when you think a sustained thought it is immediately sent out into the Universe. That thought magnetically attaches itself to the like fequency, and then within seconds sends the reading of that frequency back to you through your feelings. Put another way, your feelings are commincation back to you from the Univers, telling you what frequency you are currently on. Your feelings are your frequency feedback mechanism!”

It can be hard to forgive and let go but it’s important to remember that harboring the resentment and holding a grudge can hurt you even more. The word “forgive” really means to give something up for yourself not for them.
