First I should explain. I'm one of those nuts who really believes in the Law of Attraction. I'm the only one in my neighborhood who does, so mostly I keep quiet about it. When I slip and mention it to close friends and family they simply tolerate my eccentricity. (I'm one who believes we all have a right to our own beliefs, so I don't try to convince them.)
Meanwhile, I go through the day being careful about the thoughts I think and the words I say.
So, if you're a non-believer, you'll shake your head and say "No, it doesn't make any difference." That's OK - it's up to you.
But if you are a believer, think about this: The term "Hard-earned money."
Just now I walked into the living room to turn off the TV and someone was going on about gasoline prices and spending "your hard-earned money," and it got me to thinking about it.
How can a person expect to be successful in their occupation if they look at their money as "Hard earned?" Doesn't that imply a struggle? Doesn't that imply hardship? If you get up in the morning thinking that earning money is going to be difficult, don't you think it will be difficult?
You may need to work hard, but if you're in the right occupation, it's joyfully earned. That's how I feel about my work as a copywriter. I feel thankful every day that I can earn a living doing something I truly love to do.
I love writing, I love the challenge of finding the right marketing messages, and I love meeting new people and helping them toward their success.
It isn't always easy work. Some days it's difficult to find just the right words. Some days I've had to deal with clients I wish I'd never met. Some days I have to say "no" to an outing with a friend because I have a deadline.
But still, I love the work and my money is joyfully earned.
The Law of Attraction says we'll draw to us what we think about most - and with the most emotion.
So if you love your job and feel thankful that you get to earn a good living in your chosen profession, start thinking of those dollars as your "Joyfully-earned money."
It just might draw more of them to you.
