It can't possibly be the law of attraction, actually, because if you're afraid of not being able to pay the bills, or worrying about lack - apparently that's the worst possible thing you can do! It's too many negatives! You're supposed to believe in abundance, and be positive!
I have had the great fortune to have some ongoing work over a number of months, where I can rely on a regular income. Small, but beautifully formed, and much appreciated. But as yet, I don't regularly have enough of that work that will cover the bills. As yet. And - yet - miraculously, I have never been overdrawn, and have always paid my bills over the last four years! Yes. Thank you. I applaud myself and take a bow.
Mostly, I've achieved this by juggling. Getting short term, short jobs that can be done fast and pay quickly, to supplement my modest income from regular loger term work. And so far, I haven't had to sell the family jewels. Which is just as well, because there aren't any. I do have a few art deco plates in the loft, though.
And when the longer term, monthly paid jobs run out, I get some more. This is surprisingly laid-back behaviour for a Taurean, security-loving worrier (as was). I used to think I needed a 'proper' salaried job to assuage my anxiety about covering the cost of living. Consequently, I wasted nearly 30 years! You see, I've always wanted to write, but somehow had the mistaken belief that I wouldn't be able to make a living from it. Wrong! It just goes to show that you can do anything you put your mind to, if you really go for it! NLP did a lot to get me into this way of thinking - removing barriers caused by limiting beliefs, thinking positively, persisting and being creative.
The way I started to convince myself that earning my own living was a possibility was by listing all the possible ways I could make money. I had a lovely little hardback book (which I still have), with sections with different coloured pages. I had one section of pages of 'ideas for businesses', one set of pages of 'my skills and talents', one 'moneymaking ideas' - and ways I can monetise my other ideas. It opened up my mind to the range of possibilities. For example, in my skills, etc - I could train, coach, write (with a whole section on all the different things I could write). In my moneymaking ideas list, I could sell any e-books I'd written, or even sell my vast collection of books at a car boot sale if I wanted to!
From that, I started to break down the steps it would take to achieve any of those ideas - like - promoting my business - different ways to let people know what I was doing. People to approach, ways to approach them - word of mouth, newspaper advertising, flyers, referrals.
Pretty soon, I was on fire! And in fact, it seemed there was nothing to stop me and everything to gain by just 'going for it'!
Best thing I ever did. So, if you have hopes and wishes or dreams, turn them into aims and goals by writing a plan of action - and taking action!
