What Do You Mean, “How Do I Make Money?”

I get soooo many calls and emails from people asking how to make more money…

My question is how do you NOT make more money???

Money is just like everything else – It’s energy.

And what do we know about energy? It’s massively abundant.

The ONLY difference with money and most other energy is

3 Sets Of 12 – Never Compare Yourself To Others

I just left the gym…

As usual, I had a great workout…and without fail, something to provide me entertainment while working out.

The gym I go to is always good for entertainment.

Anyway, as I was working out, a guy walked up who was ridiculously huge. I say “ridiculous” because this guy was ‘cartoon-character’ huge. His arms were larger than my both legs (combined)

Today I happen to be doing cardio weight training which is when you use considerably lighter weights, but do more reps.

So the muscle man’s friend came up..who was almost as big as he was and he wanted to use the machine I was on.

I noticed he was kinda chuckling to himself then I overheard him clowning me to his friend.

Unbeknownst to the two guys, my battery had died on my ipod…so there was no music playing, they assumed I couldn’t hear them.

Initially, this kinda upset me…but what was I going to do? Beat the guy up? :-)

So, I just left it alone and finished my set.

As I stood up I turned around and the guy was standing right in my face with a ‘belittling’ grin on his face, as to say, “now you can see how it’s supposed to be done.” As he proceeded to stack on the weights.

Oddly, someone else saw this whole exchange and said to me, “Hey, don’t worry about those guys…they’re jerks.”

I didn’t reply at first, but after a few seconds I said to the woman, “I’m not worried about them because I have different goals than they do.” Then I went on to explain the benefits of doing cardio weight training.

As I was talking to the woman, the first guy came over to where we were sitting and handed me my water bottle (I’d left it at the machine I was on). He overheard me talking to the woman and said, “Hey that’s a good idea…I might try that.”

He even went on to ‘apologize’ for his friend. (It wasn’t really an apology, but it was as close as men get to apologizing to other men)

Not that I needed an apology, but it made me feel pretty good.

The woman commented and said that I have a great attitude and that I dealt with the situation very well.

I just think it’s because of the way I choose to look at things.

I workout because it’s fun. I want to stay in shape and keep healthy. I have no intention on becoming some steroid-inhaling monster-man.

If that’s what other people want, that’s cool…but it’s not for me and I’m not going to allow anyone else to make me feel bad about my choices.

It reminded me about a lesson I learned several years ago: Scott, a longtime friend of mine from Miami, and I were hanging out and saw a guy who he knew driving down the street in the new convertible CLK (AMG). This guy was around our age and I remember saying, “Geez, what the heck does this guy do to drive that?!? I need to be driving that”

Admittedly, I was a little jealous (very jealous) and actually started getting upset – not at him, but at myself.

To add insult to injury, just that moment, a gorgeous Latina (I had a really big thing for Latin women) walked by and heard me talking to Scott. She looked at us, chuckled and says, “You wish”

Ouch

By now, I’m boiling. I wasn’t upset about the car or what the girl said, but the fact that I wasn’t doing what I needed to do to afford that type of car.

Scott says to me, “Don’t ever be jealous of what other people have… you never know how they got it.” He went on to tell me that both the guy’s parents were killed in a car accident and he manipulated and stole from his brothers and sisters to get the majority of the money.

Wow

That’s something to think about.

Really put things into perspective.

Practical Application

NEVER, EVER compare yourself to other people. Decide what you want in your own life and choose that path – no one else’s.

Don’t allow other people’s judgment of you dictate your happiness.

Feelings Are Not Only Valuable, They’re Everything

Learning better control over our feelings is a fundamental understanding of the law of attraction. We can live the life we want by attracting better situations and circumstances.

While having expectations about people and life in general is important, it’s necessary to learn how to acknowledge your feelings and emotions, allow them to flow through you naturally, and release them without high expectations. The force of emotions and feelings is natural, and you will experience the same as the emotions you send out during every interaction with other people. This is the law of attraction at work.

Some people say we have no control over situations that occur in our lives. This it totally false.

It’s important to understand that, scientifically, the things that happen in our life can’t happen unless we attract them to us. We have control over how the rest of the world shows up for us.

The law of attraction teaches us that changing a circumstance depends on us and how we react to situations. People who claim that emotions and situations are generated without our intentions or control of emotions tend to have a negative outlook on life. If you do not like a particular circumstance- Change It.

The law of attraction teaches us t hat it does not matter if we think the emotions we are experiencing are intentional or unintentional, but if we release these emotions- we are creating our current situation. Habits can be changed. Change is positive.

Practical Application
Acknowledge your emotions, whether they are negative in nature or positive, and never run away from them. You can’t deny feelings, and in order to shift your feelings to more positive situations, you must accept what you are feeling is real. Fighting negative emotions takes work.

When you find yourself having negative reactions and feelings towards a circumstance, challenge those emotions. Analyze them. Question your decision making. Find the positives and focus on them and the law of attraction will reward you with positive circumstances.
