I have been that person that was desperate for money! Oh what a powerless awful feeling it was. I have been down to no gas, little to no food and no end in sight. You can read about it on my homepage here, or on this site where I talk about how to attract love and money.
There are many out there today that are desperate for money, no doubt. With the turn of the economy, many have suffered lay offs, pay cuts and can’t seem to get it back. They blame the economy. Yes it appears that the economy is in sad shape these last few years, but blaming the economy just won’t serve you nor get you out of this position. I know some that have been looking for a job or a better job for a year or more. I just don’t get it. I find that these people really believe that a job or a better paying job is the only answer. Having that belief that this is the only way sure puts some limits on you and in fact may be what is keeping you desperate for money.
If you find yourself desperate for money more times than not or just not having enough to do what you want, the problem is not actually the lack of money, but your relationship and beliefs around money. When this was suggested to me, I was very very resistant. I was lucky to meet someone who really challenged me on this.
You see there was this program I kept seeing on facebook. It was a 30 day abundance challenge. I was so desperate and I thought, what the hell, I will try it. Thing is, since I was desperate for money, I didn’t feel as if I could afford it. I was having a discussion via email with it’s teacher, Erika and she called me out and yes challenged me. I told her that I couldn’t even afford to eat, let alone fork out $197 for this challenge. Was she crazy? My boyfriend would have a cow. I needed tires worse. You name it, I had an excuse not to do it. Here I learned my first lesson in commitment and why you must commit to something or you will never succeed at it. I discussed the importance of commitment here on my blog post, Commitment is the Key.
So below is how Erika replied to my feeble excuses that felt like genuine reasons to me at the time:
Allowing other people’s opinions to enter in, such as boyfriend, is often yet another way to not take fully responsibility or be fully committed. Plus, keeping agreements is one of the most important principles of this entire system. If you don’t keep your agreements, you will not be a powerful manifestor, no way around it.
