The first step to attracting abundance and opening the flow of positive energy into your life is to let go of your preconceived notions of wealth and affluence. It’s time to start having faith that you already have more wealth and affluence than you know. And if you don’t have everything you need right now, you can still have faith that you have the courage, strength, and spiritual intelligence to tap into the abundance flows of energy and opportunity that stream around you each and every day.

Develop a win-win mindset. Don’t think of having enough money as a matter of having more than your neighbors. Having enough money means that you intrinsically believe that there is enough for everyone on this planet if individuals learned how to use only their fair share of resources (i.e.; food, fuel, energy, land). In other words, you believe that by only taking what you truly need and leaving enough for others, you are focusing on feelings of abundance and not harboring feelings of scarcity and lack.

Get organized. Reducing clutter and banishing energy-zapping chaos is a useful, effective way to improve your luck, achieve your goals, and invite positive things into your life.

Trust yourself. You are the expert on your life. Avoid second-guessing yourself and start honoring your inner wisdom. Your body and mind are powerful tools that can guide you towards greater luck and prosperity, if only you’d listen to your gut more often. Your mind and body are designed to pick up on signs and signals all around you. If you want to be luckier in life and love, listen carefully to what your gut is telling you.

Don’t just stand there, act on opportunities. Keep your eyes open for possible open doors, and then see where they lead. People who are lucky don’t just notice opportunities, they act on them. There’s a saying in sports that goes something like this: 100% of the shots that you don’t take, don’t go in. Stand in the sidelines if you wish to be safe, comfortable, and static. But if you want to be luckier, you’re going to have to get in the game!

Don’t doubt the power of positive self-talk. Do you know how self-fulfilling prophecies work and what they have to do with being luckier and more prosperous? In a self-fulfilling prophecy. what you believe in eventually becomes reality because you will naturally do and say things that cause events, good or bad, to happen.

Practice being humble and grateful. You’ll see all the blessings that good luck has already laid at your feet when you count your blessings.

When it comes to luck, the old adage “opposites attract” doesn’t apply. The way you think, the way you act, and the way you treat other people will always attract more of the same back to you. If you adopt a generous mindset and believe that the Universe will always provide you with what you need, and not necessarily what you want, you are free to give to others generously. After all, when you have an abundance mindset, you naturally believe that “there’s more where that came from!”

Start each day by giving thanks for all the abundance in your life. Believe that as you go about your day, all of your needs will be met effortlessly and with the greatest of ease. As you begin your day, pray for the courage to give to others generously. The more you believe that your needs will be met, the easier it will be for you to help others meet their needs. It’s like a Mobius strip of good energy and abundance feeding into itself, over and over again!
