I’ve talked about beliefs quite a bit on this site. I’ve written about how beliefs stop people, create blind spots and even cause pain and discomfort. I’ve also written about how beliefs can help you achieve your wildest dreams and goals if they are strong positive beliefs aligned with your goals. In this article I’ll share 3 steps to install a positive belief system to attract more money.
Step 1: Choose What You Want
If you want to earn more money then you need to know how much. You may want a 10% raise at your job or you may want to earn an extra $100,000 before the end of the year. You may even want to double your business income before year end. It doesn’t matter what it is (or how much it is), the first step is to choose what you want.
Once you know what you want, write it down. It may be something like this: ”I am earning $500,000 as fast as possible.”
Ambitious people tend to set bigger goals.
Once you have your goal written down, your job is to read this goal once EVERY MORNING WHEN YOU FIRST GET UP.
A small caveat. People who have lower self esteem tend to be less likely to risk failure (or success); they are also less likely to handle the obstacles that will likely surface from pursuing bigger goals that are outside of their comfort zone (like attracting larger sums of money).
If that’s you, here’s what I suggest. Work on your self esteem and self confidence first. You do that by creating a powerful self image. That will put everything in line for you. You can get started here: 3 Tips to Build Self Confidence
Step 2: Get Into the Experience of Having It Now
Once you know what you want, you want to get into the experience of having it NOW.
If you want more money then you want to feel the abundance you would experience – not the money itself. A lot of people make this mistake. They screw up this whole abundance thing by trying to feel what it’s like to have an extra $1,000,000 dollars in the bank. And it doesn’t work because you don’t generate the feelings of abundance.
Money is not what turns people on. It’s what you can do with money. So what you really want to do is get into the experience of feeling abundant. You want to feel that you have more than enough money. You want to feel that you have more than enough time. You want to feel that you have more than enough food. You want to feel that you have more than enough health. You want to feel abundant in all areas of your life.

The second mistake a lot of people make is that they think they need to feel abundant every minute of every day. That’s total crap too.
You don’t need to feel abundant every minute of every day… in the beginning you’re only going to feel abundant for a few minutes each day. But that’s how this starts. As you keep at it, abundance will become your dominant way of feeling. It’s the repetition when done consistently over time that will transform your life.
Step 3: Do What You Can Where You Are
“You get ready for the good that lies at a distance by meeting the situation now at hand with whatever you have to work with.” ~ Catherine Ponder
This means taking action. You’ve got to start moving towards your goals if you want them to move towards you. If you’re sitting on the coach or in your cubicle daydreaming and hoping you’re going to get that promotion – think again.
You must be in action. All you have to do is move, even if it’s just a little bit. If you want more money then you must take actions that bring you more money. If you’re in a job one of the best ways to move towards more money is to find out what the companies BIGGEST problem is and help them solve it.
People who solve the biggest problems get paid the most. As an example, a company that is suffering to find new business has a big problem: finding new business. Help the company solve that problem and you become very valuable to that company. You’re doing the company a BIG SERVICE – and because you are helping the company solve a big problem you will get paid handsomely for it – you will earn more money.
Remember this formula:
BIG SERVICE = BIG CHECKS
I guarantee that if you solve your companies biggest problems they will reward you; money will flow to you. So an action you might take is to meet with your supervisor/manager/company owner and ask them what there biggest problems are.
After you ask them, just listen. Listen for all the potential opportunities where you can help the company solve their biggest problems.
Business works the same way. The business owners who solve the biggest problems for their clients earn the biggest checks.
If you’re a business owner, just ask yourself: What is the biggest problem my company can solve for more of my clients right now?
Then take one action. Survey your clients or phone them up and ask them what is their biggest problem. It’s really that simple to get started. Take an action. Some way – somehow – you must move towards your goals if you want them to move towards you.
When you move towards your goals they AUTOMATICALLY move towards you. Make it happen. Act now.
