We have all heard the term ‘Money Mindset’ and although it is very true that you have to have your money mindset straight to be able to move forward to the many accomplishments that you desire in life, I prefer to use my own term ‘Money Manifesto.’ I know, sure, most of us aren’t in a political party stating a manifesto and trying to change the world (although if you are and are trying to change the world for the better KUDOS to you), but we are individuals trying to change our own world so why not have our own proclamations on how we are going to get to where it is that we really want to be in life?
The truth is that many of us walk through our days just going with what ever the world brings to us. This is great if the universe is bringing you all the things you desire in this life, but if the desired results aren’t actually manifesting in the ways that you would like perhaps its time to take a look at your own personal money manifesto (I love the fact that manifesto has the majority of the word manifesting in it, this just makes me feel like it is really allowing people to move toward what they really want).
What is a manifesto?
Well often times the word manifesto is used by a political party to publically declare an aim for a certain issue before an election. Such as “I, so and so, will work very hard to get more funding for our schools.” It is a public declaration of what a person seeks to achieve.
So for us that would mean that our money manifesto is our mission statement or proclamation of where we are going where money is concerned in our lives. You need to make the DECISION that no matter what happens this is what you are doing and this is where you are going and set out to get there no matter what. Sure there may be some miss steps, but those are the steps that will show you the ways that work and the ways that don’t and act as stepping stones to continue on on your journey. As you have probably already guessed just wanting to have or make more money doesn’t really do anything. Unless, of course, you have a trust fund waiting for you or where born into an wealthy family. Wanting to have or make more money takes ACTION….it isn’t just going to fall out of one of those money tree’s and land square in your lap. Although I am a complete optimistic, I just haven’t ever heard of anyone finding a money tree.
So taking action in this case means getting really clear on what your money manifesto looks like. What are you looking to achieve financially and why?
What’s so great about the WHY?
You see the WHY may just be the most amazing and powerful part of your money manifesto. Why? Because this is what is most important to you and what will continue to push you forward toward your goals.
So write out your proclamations and make sure your why is entwined all throughout it. Make sure that you are coming from a deep place within yourself and that you really know what the desires are and can visualize and feel the outcomes. I can’t stress how important it is for you to be able to see yourself at the end of the road, already achieving your goals. This makes achieving it more of a reality and puts those amazing thoughts into the subconscious mind so that it will continue working toward that goal and pushing you into the direction that you are wanting to go.
Read any Law of Attraction book and one of the first things that you will glean is that you have to get really clear about what you want and start to visualize it already happening and feeling the emotions associated. I can’t make this stuff up, its proven.
Another thing that you will gain from any Law of Attraction book is that if you live in a world of lack you will have more lack and what you fear you become. I believe this is where the term ‘Money Mindset’ became so popular. If you say things like “I cant afford that”, you are right. You need to change those thoughts to thoughts of abundance and gratitude.
Let’s think of a few things that might block your money manifesto from coming true then see ways that we can change them:
Let’s go back to the example up above:
**I can’t afford that: You are coming from a place of lack which means you are right you can’t afford it. So change the dialog. Is it something you want or something that you NEED? You might want those new shoes but you NEED electricity. So you would find a way to pay the electric bill no matter what, right? But the shoes are a want and not a need. So if you decided you really did feel like you needed the shoes it’s better to come from a place of deciding how to get them. Where can you save the money or what can you do to make the extra money to get them? Changing the dialog from lack to how can you do it will bring you out of that mental mindset.
**There isn’t enough money for everyone to be rich: First off not everyone wants to be rich. Some people just want to be able to live comfortably and not have to worry. The reality is that there is enough pieces of the pie for everyone to have their fair share. Money is energy and we are all able to acquire energy as long as we are putting the right vibes out there. When we come from a place of lack that is what we are putting out there and that is what we are getting back. Be grateful in all that you already have and watch as that feeling of abundance grows out into your reality.
**I’m not good enough at anything to make money: I call BS on that. We all have amazing talents. Being bold enough to put them out there is another story. We have all the resources within us to make our every dream come true. Get clear on your talents and the priceless abilities that YOU DO have. Get clear on your goals and your money manifesto. And get clear on your WHY and watch the magic happen. Believe in yourself no matter what and believe in the fact that you know that you are worth it. Because you are.
