Day 11 Of The Law Of Attraction. Ideas and opportunities are the way God brings favor to you. His Plan requires action on your part. Leave 1 Dollar is just a start.
And a "start" is all it is.
All my simple method does is open the door for the circulation of money in your life. The idea that just by giving some money away, a greater abundance of it will automatically fall out of the sky is completely off base.
This is where churches fail their congregations. Sermons asking you to tithe even when you are going without...to "give until it hurts" do a great disservice to their membership.
Yes, giving...of both money, and our time and talents...is a part of God's Plan, but living in poverty is not.
If giving were the only way to gain wealth on God's Earth, why isn't everybody in church rich?
When you give unselfishly, when you stay focused on God's promises, when you treat others the way Jesus treated everyone, when you give thanks for the blessings you experience throughout the day...God will present you with ideas and opportunities to significantly increase your wealth.
NOT sacks of money...ideas and opportunities.
As the Scripture above states: He is giving you the power to make wealth. Not lounge on the couch and expect the FedEx guy to deliver some anonymous bags of gold coins.
Eileen Thompson (47) is a writer who lives in Taos NM. She said, "Way back in 2006 or 2007, when The Secret first came out, I was overcome with the idea. I purchased the DVD from Amazon, and watched it everyday. I wanted to get the correct mindset for getting out of the rut I called my life.
I was in a dead-end middle management job at a health care company. I wanted to be a writer. I wanted more money. I wanted to make a difference in someone's life.
My friends wanted to form a meet-up group to discuss The Secret and talk about instituting specific plans to manifest our wildest dreams of getting rich.
Things started real well...but after a couple of months they started getting weird. Instead of focusing on goals and persistence toward what we really wanted in Life, it became more of a wishing and complaining hodge lodge of people with little motivation.
Fortunately, I kept reading and learning more about The Secret. I found many wonderful articles and books. I met people who were motivated to change their lives for the better, and were taking actionable steps to do it.
I also stumbled across a little-know eBook called The Secret Behind The Secret, and that sent me into overdrive. It had the exact information I needed to hear, and gave me clear instruction on how to take the action I needed.
God, the Universe, whoever, was providing me with grounded ideas to get my writing career off the ground.
Believe it or not, I started just by sitting down in the morning and writing for 15 minutes. That's it!
I started by taking baby steps to integrate the Law of Attraction.
Each night, I would write for 30 minutes more. I know this doesn't seem like much, but it was start, and it actually made me feel like a real writer."
In my own experiences, God provided me with the idea to start an online business that generates excellent money. He also presented me with a huge opportunity to invest the money I made selling my tract home in 2008, when the rest of the economy was crumbling.
I have definitely been blessed, but I know it happened because I moved my feet in accordance to God's path for me.
The Law of Attraction is all about action...both mental and physical. God loves us, and he gives us the power to make wealth.
I chose the Salvation Army Store to leave one dollar. There are all kinds of great places to hide a dollar bill.
I went in there to purchase some sweatshirts to leave for the homeless guys at the park, downtown. I plan to use this place a lot more. There are all kinds of vases, decorative jars, music boxes, make-up boxes...you name it...to hide a dollar bill.
I may start taking a couple dollars in there when I buy more sweatshirts.
While eating breakfast at IHOP, this morning, I got the opportunity to promote Dr Joe Vitale's Law Of Attraction Practitioner Certification course.
Is this something everyone on the path must have? Certainly not.
But for those who want a more solid connection with The Law, or think they may want to present it in future community meetings, (or meet-up groups) it is a goldmine.
I have seen other companies charge close to $500 for a home study course in The Law Of Attraction. Dr Vitale charges less than fifty.
I am thankful I have the time, opportunity and money to eat breakfast at IHOP, and I am thankful for the ideas I receive when I am there.
I'm sure it works the same for you.
