Gratitude is riches, complaint is poverty.
The more grateful you can be fore the money you have even if you don't have much, the more riches you will receive. Today we are going to work on turning one of the biggest reasons why people complain about money into an act of gratitude. You'll be replacing a complaint (which creates loss of money) with gratitude.
Most people don't think they complain about money, but if you think there's a lack of money in your life then you're complaining about it without even realizing it. Complaining doesn't have to come from spoken words, it can come from your thoughts. We have thousands of thoughts per day, and most of the time we aren't really aware of them. Any thought of worry, jealousy, or complaint about money is causing a lack of money flow to you.
Sometimes it's hard to think positively when you have more bills coming in than it seem money to pay them. But, if we complain about our bills, then we're also complaining about money. It sounds contradictory, but if you want to be open to receiving more money in your life then you have to feel grateful for your bills. You have to be grateful for everything that costs you money.
In order to feel that gratitude for your bills, you should think about the services you received for that bill and be grateful for that. For example, if you have bills for rent or a mortgage then you should be grateful that you have a home to live in. If you have bills for electric and gas, then be grateful for heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer and for appliances. If you have internet or phone or cable bills, just be grateful that you even have those luxuries to browse the web, make phone calls to people you love and watch TV for entertainment.
One additional practice I encourage you to do is to write on every bill you have yet to pay "Thank you for the money" and feel grateful for having the money to pay each bill, whether you have the money to pay it or not. You can even do this for e-bills you get. Just forward the bill to your own email and in the subject line write "thank you for the money". Then, for every bill you pay, remember to say THANK YOU!
From here on out, you should practice this when you pay your bills. Feeling gratitude for the money you paid out guarantees you'll receive more. Gratitude is like a magnet with everything in life. The more you put gratitude out for the things you have, the more you'll receive back.
