How to Avoid Blocking Wealth and Success
By Valerie Dawson, Founder of The Dawson Method
When you try to attract abundance, wealth and success with the Law of Attraction, your own thoughts can sometimes work against you. Three of the most common ways this can happen are described below, along with tips for turning those negative thought habits into more positive ones.
Turn Doubt into Open-Minded Optimism
Have you ever gotten a great idea that caused your heart to beat faster and you began daydreaming about how awesome it would be to accomplish such a thing? Then most likely the doubt and disbelief crept in. You may have thought, “I don’t have the money or knowledge to do that; no one would take me seriously,” and so on.
For many of us, the problem isn’t that we aren’t capable of achieving great wealth and success – but that we have closed our minds to the many great ideas that could put us on the path to such an outcome. Doubt and disbelief are symptoms of a closed mind – and wealth and success cannot come from that type of mind-set.
Instead, open your mind; let the ideas flow in, and then do whatever you can to follow through on them and see where they might lead.
Infuse “You” Into Everything You Do
Have you ever tried to model your actions after others who have been successful doing what you want to do? This is not necessarily a bad idea because it’s true that you can learn a lot from others who have already accomplished what you want to accomplish. However, a problem arises when you try to squash down your own uniqueness in the process.
When you do this, you are not thinking for yourself but trying to become someone else – and that simply never works. You would do much better to embrace the qualities that make you unique and express them in every aspect of your work and personal life. You can still model your approach after the success of others – but do it in your own unique way.
Turn Negatives into Positives
You may be taking a “destructive” approach in improving your life by trying to blast the negative stuff out of your consciousness - as if hating something intently enough could remove it permanently. However, the more you focus on the negative the more you are going to keep perpetuating it in your life.
One of the most powerful techniques you can learn is the ability to switch the angle of your focus. Rather than trying to avoid focusing on the negative stuff, you can learn to see it in a different light - for example, imagining yourself being debt-free, rather than resisting the feeling of being in debt. It seems like such a small shift, but it can make all the difference in the world.
