I truly believe that abundance is meant to be easy, we just haven’t been brought up with that mindset. Here are 3 ways you can help more abundance flow into your life with ease.
#1 Fix the Bugs in Your Subconscious Code
Of course I’m going to say this! It’s kind of my ‘thing’!
Before you put lots of effort into upskilling, starting a business, revamping your career or investing to improve your financial life, it’s SO important to first make sure that you’re not going to sabotage yourself along the way and undo your best efforts.
Subconscious sabotage is a real thing, and in my opinion it’s the number one reason that people don’t achieve the level of freedom, choice and abundance in their lives that they dream of.
Clearing your mind of subconscious blocks around money, wealth and success is not that hard. But it does require a systematic approach. I lay out a step-by-step process for doing that in my book The Abundance Code: How to Bust the 7 Money Myths for a Rich Life Now, available on Amazon here.
#2 Work Smarter, Not Harder
Why do we feel that we have to justify our prosperity by limiting it to the kind that comes from hard (or HARDER) work? That notion is a conditioned response. A mental trap. A myth. (One that I help you overcome in my book).
It’s just not true.
Over the years I’ve learned the power of leverage – I’ve learned how important it is to make my efforts reap bigger rewards for every hour I spend. I’ve learned that it’s definitely possible to work smarter, not harder.
This happens by focusing on doing the kinds of work that you can do once, but that pay you over and over again. Like: creating an online course or product and selling it over and over again. Or writing a book or an ebook and selling that over and over again. Creating a client attraction funnel and using it over and over again to get good, paying clients.
It may also mean paying other people to do simple tasks for you that are not the best use of your time, so you can focus on the higher level things that will reap you the biggest rewards. It also applies to putting systems in place in your life to save you time and effort. That can be as simple as setting up and saving a default online grocery order that you can just tweak every week and it gets delivered to your house.
Put in a bit of time upfront in order to systematise, automate and streamline areas in your life, career and business so you can be way more productive with your time. Or even simply get some of your time back, so you can chill a bit more and you’re no longer so tired. That can do amazing things for your creativity, which can lead to more great ideas and more abundance.
The main thing is: stop valuing hard work for the sake of hard work. Really look at how you could be working smarter, not harder.
#3 Invest In Income-Producing Assets
One of my favorite sayings is: “You don’t have to be wealthy to invest, but you do have to invest to be wealthy.” I have a very broad definition of investing though, and it does include investing in yourself.
When it comes to investing in income producing assets (of which you, yourself are one these assets) again it is the concept of do it once, and let it pay you dividends forever.
The most simple, basic example of this is a term deposit where if you lock part of your savings away for several months at a time, you’ll get a higher interest rate for it. Or maybe you can invest in a rental property that pays you extra cash each week. Or even just rent out a room.
What the best income boosting strategy is for you, will very much depend on where you’re starting from. Whatever it is, the idea is to get some extra money for little to no additional effort, apart from the time and effort it takes to set the thing in motion in the first place.
If you can learn a new skill that you can then use to increase your income, that may be the best investment you can make at this time. If you already have invested in yourself sufficiently, then it may be time to start looking at other income-producing assets you can invest in. Keep at it, be methodical, and before you know it you can have additional income rolling in every week, month or year that you have to do very little in terms of extra effort to get.
Invest in yourself, invest in your mindset, and invest in things that will pay you over and over again in either more time or more money. Because, you’re worth it.
As always, let me know in the comments if this post has helped you in any way.
