How NOT To Attract Money
I’ve had enough!
I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with all the CRAP written on the internet about how to attract money using the Law Of Attraction.
Not because I don’t think it’s possible to attract opportunities to make money, but because most of the information is just plain USELESS! By useless, I mean that it is not actionable and you can’t do anything with it.
I searched Google for “attract wealth” and here are some of the gems I found:
“Step into the flow of the Universe and ask for money help…”
At first glance, this looks like an innocent enough premise, but when we dig a little deeper you’ll discover that statements like this often leave us more confused that before we read them.
Check this out… Could you please tell me exactly WHERE I find this universal flow. Once I’ve found it, HOW do I step into it and HOW do I ask for money help? Do I go looking for a universal river at full moon and then bathe in it? Do I howl into the night sky “I need money help!” and hope the Universe is listening to me?
See what I mean? This is not actionable advice, so in my mind, it’s totally useless. Unfortunately, many of the “new-age” or “spiritual” teachings that are popular today, are filled with this useless crap.
“Learn to vibrate at the frequency of money…”
This one cracks me up…
I may not be the smartest guy on the planet, but could someone please tell me exactly how many Hertz (cycles per second) money vibrates at? I’d also love to know HOW to vibrate myself at that frequency, so I can attract some of this money too.
I decided to try vibrating at the frequency of money just to see if it worked…
In my gym, I have this cool fitness gadget called a Power Plate. You stand on it and it vibrates your body like a jack hammer. I kid you not. I stood on it this morning and set it to HIGH, hoping that it could vibrate me to the frequency of money…
Unfortunately no money fell from the sky. However, I did make a few sales from my website, but I doubt that was from vibrating for 5 minutes. Maybe if I can get Power Plate to add a MONEY switch in addition to the HIGH/LOW switch, I’ll be able to attract some more money.
Obviously, I’m just being facetious and having some fun, but there is a point to my banter:
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to attract money. The problem (as I see it) is that most of the people who talk about ‘attracting money’ come from a mindset of lack i.e. wanting to get something for nothing.
If you believe people who tell you that you can somehow magically ‘attract’ money by doing nothing other than ‘vibrating’ or ‘asking’, you’re never going to have any (or at least not for long).
Having a mindset that supports you taking action towards becoming financially free is essential, but that alone is never going to make you rich.
Go ask anyone on the Forbes Magazine “Rich List” how they created their wealth and they aren’t going to tell you that they sat around vibrating to the frequency of money.
So, how have wealthy people ATTRACTED their wealth?
Drum roll please…
The Only Way To Attract Wealth
The way that EVERY wealth creator in history has made their money is by providing or creating some kind of VALUE that people are willing to pay money for.
Read that sentence again, because it might be the most important sentence you read in your entire financial life.
If you provide lots of VALUE, you’ll easily attract OPPORTUNITIES to exchange it for MONEY.
NOTE: You can’t attract money itself (at least not from my experience), but you can attract opportunities (to exchange some form of value for money).
If you’re still focusing on attracting money, you’re probably broke. Focus on how you or your product or service can add value to others, and then watch the money flow in.
Here’s the equation:
GIVE NO VALUE = GET NO MONEY
GIVE VALUE = GET OPPORTUNITIES (TO EXCHANGE VALUE FOR MONEY)
If making money is that simple, then why is it that most people don’t succeed in becoming wealthy?
I believe it’s because most people have NO IDEA what kind of value they should be adding, so they end up paralyzed by confusion (not knowing how to move forward) or beating the same old financial freedom drum over and over again doing the same thing (even if it is not working) until they give up or burn out… Sound familiar?
So what’s the Secret to creating wealth?
In my opinion, the secret to wealth creation is discovering your unique VALUE that you can add to the world, and then spreading that value in a way that is enjoyable for you.
If you’re like most people (including me a few years ago), then you probably have no clue where your unique VALUE lies or how to share it with the world, so you’re probably struggling to exchange your potential value for MONEY.
The Good News Is…
There is a way to determine what your unique VALUE is use it to create enormous amounts of wealth, without having to howl at the moon or figure out how to vibrate at the frequency of money.
