The Right Mindset To Attract Wealth
Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others or being envious of another’s person’s success? You can have the impressive degree, a huge bank account and the beautiful car but if you’re inclined toward envying others accomplishments there will always be someone with a bigger bank account and a bigger boat.
In the best selling book, The Science of Getting Rich,Wallace D. Wattles advises us to avoid having a competitive mindset and have a creative mind instead…
“You do not have to covet the property of others, or to look at it with wishful eyes; no man has anything of which you cannot have the like, and that without taking what he has away from him.
Having a Creative Mindset
To have a creative mindset is a healthy internal desire to accomplish, that which has not been done before whereas a competitive mindset is a personal competition with another human being. Which can take the form of envy and this can become self-defeating being rooted in fear and insecurity. It’s imperative to your success that you develop a creative (prosperity) mindset. If you find yourself struggling with envy here are 5 simple steps to develop a healthy creative mindset and enjoy your success:
1. Reevaluate Your Mindset
When you are experiencing envy it can feel threatening, but start with an awareness of your feelings and ask yourself what’s underlying this feeling?
Take some time to sit and meditate on what may be causing these feelings.
Remember to keep your own vision in mind instead of comparing yourself to others. Remind yourself of your own goals on a daily basis and let someone else’s success be that spark that helps you strive toward constantly reevaluating your progress instead of comparing it to someone theirs
“Envy is the art of counting the other fellow’s blessings instead of your own.” – Harold Coffin
Refocus with gratitude. It helps us to focus on all the positive aspects of our own life and not make comparisons with others.
Replace envy with compassion you don’t know what kind of sacrifices have been made and whether or not they are a definition of success in every area of their lives. You are getting only a limited amount of information from your perspective.
Recognize Insecurity and fear of not being enough is vulnerability. And we are all vulnerable. If you’re feeling threatened by another persons success realize there ARE some thing that are outside our control, some people are going to have different abilities and talents
then allow it to alert you to things that you want in life that ARE very attainable with a creative mindset. For this I like to bring to mind the serenity prayer.
