As hard it may seem to believe, you really are rich. Now, you may not feel rich because the rent, car and credit card payments are coming due and you have no idea where you’re going to get the funds to pay for it. How can I possibly say you’re rich given those circumstances? Well, let’s look at the big picture.
To Most of The World, You Live A Dream Life
Thanks to the power of the Dot Com Lifestyle, I had the opportunity to travel for over 100 days last year and visited a bunch of places. If you lived in America all your life, you may not see how a lot of people in other parts of the world live. The terrible reality is the world is filled with people who don’t have anything. Three billion people live on less than $2 per day while 1.3 billion get by on less than $1 per day. Seventy percent of those living on less than $1 per day are women. Did you know that the kid making minimum wage working at McDonald’s makes more than 75% of the world’s population? In many parts of the world, there are people who don’t have food, never mind a Big Mac. They don’t have access to medicine and can’t see a doctor. They don’t work in an air conditioned office. And as scary as it sounds, they don’t have access to the Internet!
You may be struggling. You may be worried about your family finances. You may be making yourself sick thinking about the cost of your child’s education. You may be living from paycheck to paycheck. The credit card companies may be hounding you. You may think there’s nothing you can do about it. But there is something you can do about it. And you can do it starting right now.
Appreciating What You Have
You can appreciate and be grateful for what you already have. To most of the world, you are living the dream life. You may think your life sucks but there are billions of people who would gladly switch places with you.
Take a look at all the stuff you have already – food, shelter, clothing, friends, family, toys, etc. I’m pretty sure you have enough food for dinner tonight and breakfast tomorrow morning. You’ve probably got enough change in your pocket to get a Grande Mocha at the Starbucks. You’re living in a place with heat and may be even air conditioning. Your closet probably has a few outfits and if you’re female, I know you’ve got more than one pair of shoes. I bet you got a cell phone, a color TV, a computer and most importantly, access to the Internet.
I was born in a small farming village in mainland China. This gives me a different perspective on life. China wasn’t the mega powerhouse back then as it is today. Our house had no electricity. There was no running water. I had to use a leaky bucket and pull it out of a well. Cooking was done by an open fire. There was no eclectic stove and no one knew what a microwave was. I walked the streets barefoot because I had no shoes.
When my family immigrated to Canada, we didn’t have any money. We lived in the Downtown Eastside, the poorest neighborhood in all of Canada. I only watched CBC on the TV because we didn’t have cable. I was a latch key kid because both my mom and dad had to work to make ends meet. You could say my childhood sucked, but you’ll be wrong. It may sucked compared to what other kids may have had. From my point of view, I didn’t have any problems. I only have blessings.
Negative Thinking Produces Negative Results
Stop dwelling on the negatives and start focusing on the positive. Have you noticed that when you think about bills, all you get are more bills? That is the law of attraction at work. You attract to you what you are and you are what you think. Change your thinking and you’ll change your life. If you’re always thinking, “My life sucks!” you will attract things that suck. If you appreciate the things you already have and start thinking “My life is great!” you will attract things that are great. It doesn’t seem to make sense but that’s how it works.
I recommend you take a few minutes each day and count your blessings. Then say “thank you” that you have blessings to count – a lot people in this world don’t. It really is a sad fact that most people don’t appreciate what they have until it’s gone. Don’t let that happen to you.
Start counting your blessing and appreciate what you already have and you’ll start to feel better. Your spirit will be lifted. Your fears and anxieties will go away. You’ll feel less stress and won’t be in such a bad mood all the time. And most important, you’ll open yourself up to all the blessings that the law of attraction has waiting for you.
