I truly believe that having an abundance of money is a good thing, but until you get there, you have to be happy with what you have. And, for some people, that means you have to be happy with little money. It’s hard to do until you get the right perspective, and I find that Ester and Jerry Hicks have been invaluable in helping me gain the right perspective in many areas of life, including money. So following are some quotes, taken from the Money And The Law Of Attraction Cards, to help you be happy with little money or a lot of money or anywhere in between.
1. Your Future Is Bright
The eternal laws of the universe steadily hold the promise of expansion and joy.
Isn’t that a better thought to focus on than lack of money? The basic thought behind this is that whatever you want, you can get. The future can contain more money and more of what you want. You don’t need to be stuck where you are for the rest of your life, so don’t think and behave like you are stuck.
My husband and I have been stuck in some pretty tight places. In fact, at one point, we have both lost our jobs at the same time. But we made it our quest to be happy with little money at that time. We knew that even though we couldn’t buy much of anything (including what we needed), and we were going into the red even more, there would be a day when we had more than we needed, and that thought helped us to stop stressing out about where we were and motivated us to start taking action on what we needed to do to draw more money into our lives.
2. You Can’t Make Others Happy With Or Without Money
It is not your role to make others happy; it is your role to keep yourself in balance.
It doesn’t matter what other people think about your situation right now. Whether they think you should have very little money in order to be a good person or that you are not good enough because you don’t have a lot of money – who cares. It’s not your job to worry about what other people think about money. It’s your job to worry about what you think about money.
I’ve found that when you stop caring about what other people think – good or bad – you start turning more inwards, and that’s where you need to get in order to be happy and to draw more money into your life.
You don’t need to live by other people’s money rules. You need to live by your own.
3. This Is A Good Reason To Be Happy With Little Money (Or Whatever You Have)
Once you are able to achieve and consistently maintain your personal alignment, a great deal of money with flow into your experience.
When you feel happy at a thoughtful, emotional, and spiritual level, you start to attract good things into your life, including money. To me, achieve your personal alignment means acting in accordance with what you know is right, thinking good thoughts about yourself, your life, and the world, and feeling good about life every day. There are many ways to do that, including positive affirmations, appreciation, love, gratitude, visualization, etc.
Getting into personal alignment also means letting go of limiting beliefs that are blocking you from being the person you want to be. Start digging into the beliefs that are holding you back from being happy with where you are at, and once you start letting them go, you will be amazed at how your life changes.
4. Give Your Attention To What You Want
The most valuable skill or talent that you could ever develop is that of directing your thoughts toward what you want.
Can you truly be happy with little money? If you can, then that’s a good thing. But the fact that you are reading this article tells me that you probably can’t. You are probably focused on how to give up and make the best of it, which means you are focused on how much having little money sucks.
If you are focused on what you don’t want (little money), then you are going to be unhappy. Therefore, you need to give your attention to what you do want.
- Do you want to make an abundant amount of money?
- Do you want to find a job that you are passionate about that makes you a lot of money?
- Do you want to be happy no matter what you have or don’t have in your life?
Start focusing on what you do want and I guarantee that people or situations will arise to help you move towards that place. All you have to do from there is take action.
5. Don’t Criticize Others
When you find yourself critical of the way anyone has attracted or is using money, you are pushing money away from you.
I see a ton of people hating on others who make money.
- They complain about people on YouTube making six figures.
- They complain about people who come into money through inheritance.
- They complain and criticize and then they usually follow it up with how little money they have.
It’s not surprising to me that they have little money. If you are hateful and critical towards other people for how they bring money into their life or how they use it, you are putting yourself into a state where you can’t attract money. It’s a state of anger and jealousy, and that’s not an energetic state that opens up your awareness and allows you to see opportunities and then take advantage of them for yourself. You are too busy stuck in your head thinking and plotting and worrying.
How other people attract and spend money has nothing to do with you. You are supposed to focus on what feels good to you, so be happy for them – or at the very least, don’t focus on them – and then work on attracting money into your own life.
6. Your Career In Life Is To Live In Happiness
Make a ‘career’ of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy.
This is now one of my favorite Ester and Jerry hicks quotes. I went to college three times to pursue careers that were going to make me a lot of money, but they made me so unhappy that I couldn’t follow through with them. Instead, I decided that I didn’t want to spend my life unhappy and chose to do things that made me feel good, even for my career. I loved writing. I found freelance writing. And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.
I strongly believe that if everyone would just do what makes them happy, they would attract abundance to them. I’m not just talking about sitting around, though. I’m talking about finding a way to help other people in a way that makes you happy (what work is really all about) and then creating a business or finding a job that relates to that.
In short, if you view your life’s purpose as being happy and living a happy life, and then only choose a career that makes you happy, you are going to do be more motivated and passionate in your job/business, and you are going to have more success in every way, including financially if that’s what you want.
7. What You Focus On Now Will Come Into Your Future
When you acknowledge what you do not want and then ask yourself, “What is it that I do want?” you begin a gradual shift into the telling of your new story and into a much-improved point of attraction.
This is a great reason to not try to trick yourself into being happy with little money. As Abraham has said, you get the essence of what you think about because the law of attraction is consistent.
So if you are trying to be happy with little money, and you force yourself to think happy thoughts about little money and feel happy about little money, then you are going to maintain little money in life (it’s what you are focused on) and you are going to create a future with little money because it is what you are focused on. If that’s not what you want, then don’t do it!
For most people, having little money is something they don’t want. If that’s you, don’t dwell on it. Instead, ask yourself what you do want, focus on those answers, and follow the clues and take the action to help you get there.
8. You Are The Creator Of Your Life
You are a creator and the subject of your creation is your joyful life experience.
I know plenty of people who leave their lives in other people’s hands. Don’t do that if you want to create a more abundant life. Instead, view yourself as the creator of your life and then get busy doing what a creator would do.
You don’t have to be happy with little money. You don’t have to settle with anything. You are the creator of your own life. Learn, take action, take chances, and then tweak when necessary.
Make your life about joyful life experiences, as this Esther and Jerry Hicks quote says. Choose what feels good. Take actions that help you feel good. Focus on what feels good. This is how you create your own life experience.
9. Focus On Changing The Way You Feel
As you change the way you feel, you access the Energy that creates worlds.
It’s really easy to tell when you are headed down an unhappy path. If you don’t feel good, your thoughts are not focused on positive things. And if you are focused on negative things, then you are going to bring more negative things into your life.
So, when you feel bad, find a way to feel good.
- Watch a funny movie.
- Hang out with fun friends.
- Appreciate the things in your life.
- Love the people in your life.
Do things that make you feel good to help you access the ‘Energy that creates worlds’.
10. Instead Of Complaining, Do This
When you focus upon lack in an attitude of complaining, you establish a vibrational point of attraction that only gives you access to more thoughts of complaint.
One of the things that has changed my life the most is dropping the habit of complaining. After I realized that the Law of Attraction was really working in my life, it became apparent to me that complaining got me nowhere and nothing – that it was useless in my life – and once I dropped it, I started to attract more of what I really wanted. I know it can do the same for you.
You can see this work in your own life. Listen to the people complaining in your life and watch as they attract more of those complaints day in and day out.
I watch people in my family complain about everything and everyone, and they keep attracting those experiences and people into their life. It’s so obvious to me that they are getting what they are focused on – and complaining makes you focus on what you don’t want in a strong way both in thought and in feeling.
Don’t join in when someone is complaining. Instead, make a positive statement. You will annoy the hell of them, probably, because they simply want to focus on the negative, but you will be doing yourself a favor by refocusing your attention to more positive things. That will help you get unstuck from being unhappy with only a little money and focus on how you are going to get more money into your life.
