We live in difficult times! No doubt about it! With all thats going on in our world the financial crisis is a hard one to deal with. In my country, Greece, many have moved abroad in hopes of a better future. They say, we can’t make it in Greece, its too hard. Unemployment is at its peak. No jobs, minimum wages are low as can be. So what do we do in times of need? Is it true, that external circumstances are to blame? The government? The economic crisis? Do we just sit and accept that times are hard and things are out of our control?
I say, categorically NO! External circumstances are not to blame. Yes, things are hard, but lets look at a different perspective. A deeper one. Money is a touchy subject for many. But what if I told you you could have everything your heart desires? What if I told you no matter what is going on around you, you could have financial abundance and the government or state of your country or any other factor has nothing to do with your financial status. Difficult to accept, I know. However, the size of your bank account doesn’t define you. Nor, does it give you value as a person. The size of your bank account directly reflects how you value yourself and how deserving you think you are.
Purpose! Purpose will bring meaning in your life like never before. It will bring you financial abundance. What is purpose? Purpose is the reason that something is done or created or for which something exists. God created each and every one of us for a reason. Everyone is uniquely different in that each of us have unique gifts that should be shared with the world.
People go around living their lives in a way they think they must, because thats the way it should be. Thats the way they have learned. Each of us have been given special qualities and gifts that if uncovered can serve people in need. You were brought to this earth for a reason. That reason is your purpose. Your purpose is something bigger than you. Something you and only you have to offer, no one else can, because no one is like you. Find your gifts, find your purpose and you will reach financial abundance.
Purpose is a game changer. However, your mind set is where it all begins. We must change our mindsets in order to have anything different in our lives. Come from a generative mind set, because there are no lack of resources, only a lack of resourcefulness. It all starts in the mind, and in your perspective. Change your perspective and change your world. Most of us have been taught to wait, be cautious, don’t choose what we want because thats selfish. Wait. Wait till we have enough money to follow our dreams. Wait till we have enough money to take that course we’ve always dreamed of. Wait till we have saved enough funds to take that trip. When I have this, then I will be happy. When I reach this place, (either financially or relationship wise), then I will be happy. Wait, wait , wait, and while you are waiting for things to be just right, your whole life has passed you by. You’ve been in that emotionally draining job for years, barely scraping by. Your funds are always depleted as is your energy. You can change that.
So where do you begin? If you want abundance in your life, you have to come from abundance. First, be grateful for where you are and what you have. Everything in your life is a lesson. You never loose. You only gain. You only learn. Begin by making a gratitude list every day of the things in your life you are grateful for. Come from a generative mindset. How can you generate more income? Fill your heart with gratitude and you will have more to be grateful for. Believe that you deserve more, better, chose work that brings you love, connection and fulfillment. What have you always dreamed of doing? You know. If you had to guess what would it be? Find it, and go do it. Begin today by taking small steps. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just start. Your purpose will bring you financial and romantic abundance, but first you must come from a place of gratitude.
So, when is the best time to do things ? When is the best time to make that change in your life? What are you waiting for? Yesterday is the best time I say, but I’ll settle for today!
Lets begin with gratitude!
