You might think that attracting prosperity sounds like a phrase that people use who think you need to meditate two hours a day, not eat meat and communicate with spirits with Biblical names. And while there are some New Age and New Thought gurus who do all of those things, actually attracting prosperity to your life is much simpler than that.
That’s not to say that it’s easy. There are a number of ways to do it wrong, which only means that you won’t attract the prosperity you deserve. There’s no doom and gloom option when it comes to trying to bring good things into your life. There’s no way to do it wrong and actually attract heartache.
Even by just attempting methods of attracting prosperity, you start wheels turning in both your head and the universe that can help good things happening in your life. Because the first step in making good things happen for yourself is a change in your attitude. This can affect every part of your life, if you let it.
Instead of seeing things through a negative lens, it’s necessary to see them through a positive one. Use the analogy of a glass that’s filled halfway with water. Instead of seeing it as half-empty or half-dirty, learn to see it as half-full. If you burn dinner, don’t see it as a ruined meal, notice that the pans will still be fine after they’re washed.
This shift in perception takes you from seeing negativity and limitations and instead into seeing the positive side of everything. Attracting prosperity works on the principle that what you believe and what you surround yourself with will attract similar things. If you go through your day noticing what’s wrong with everything, you are going to attract problems.
But if you go through your day noticing the good side to each situation, you will attract prosperity. This might sound far-fetched to some people, but when you focus on being positive and on seeing the good in things, your attitude will change.
Once this attitude shift takes place, it becomes even easier to automatically see the positive in even a very bad situation. When you begin noticing positive things, opportunities that you would have otherwise missed if you had been focused on the negative instead make themselves known to you.
When viewed this way, attracting prosperity seems less like some strange metaphysical system than it does good common sense. When you see an opportunity you might have missed with a more negative attitude, it’s like you’ve attracted the potential for prosperity, by seeing an opportunity where you wouldn’t have before.
And when you’re faced with an opportunity, you can take advantage of it where you couldn’t have before. Even if it was something you might have noticed before but not acted on when you had a more negative attitude, with a positive attitude you may act on it and believe that it will work in your favor. Attracting prosperity becomes second nature when you believe that good things are possible.
