Be thankful for and see the opportunities all around yourself. Shifting into a grateful mindset moves us away from lack and into prosperity. If you have gratitude for what you already have more will come. This can be hard for people who don’t have money because they mainly focus on the wanting of money and all they get is the wanting of money.
What we focus on expands. Telling ourselves “when I have money I’ll be happy” or “when I have this I’ll be happy” is counterproductive to all the abundance we already have in our lives.
Magnetic Money Music Monday – Week 5
I’ve included a few of my favorite lyrics from the song below with additional commentary
You’re gonna be, a shinin’ star
In fancy clothes, and fancy cars”
Everybody wants nice things, everybody wants money because money buys things but getting more is as simple as feeling gratitude for the things we already have.
I know a lot of people complain and say there is not enough opportunity or they can’t do this or that but this truly is an amazing time to be alive. We are surrounded by opportunities to make money, to travel, and to communicate more than ever before.
I rarely see people without a smartphone which is basically a pocket-sized computer. So many people have the ability to get a car and get online. There is so much in front of us.
You steady chasin’ that paper, just live your life
Ain’t got no time for no haters, just live your life
No tellin’ where it’ll take ya, just live your life”
Just live your life, do what you need to live the lifestyle you are looking to live and ignore any negative naysayers.
Hey, never mind what haters say
Ignore ’em ’til they fade away”
That has got to be my favorite lyric in this song. Don’t let negative people get in the way of your dreams and don’t be a negative person. Jealousy doesn’t do anything for us other than make us miserable. Next time you see something that makes you envious of something like an expensive new car or whatever, don’t get jealous get excited about it because other people are doing it and so can you!
Cause I’m a paper chaser, just livin’ my life
(Ay) my life (Oh) My life (Ay) my life (Oh)
Just livin’ my life (Ay) my life (Oh)
My life (Ay) my life (Oh) just livin’ my life”
When you get to the point to where you can follow your bliss, quite the noise, get out of the want and have gratitude for everyone who is with you is how things happen.
Seems as though you lost sight
Of what’s important when depositin’
Them checks into your bank account
And you up out of poverty
Your values is a disarray, prioritizin’ horribly
Unhappy with the riches
‘Cause you’re piss poor morally
Ignorin’ all prior advice and forewarnin’
And we mighty full of ourselves all of a sudden, aren’t we?”
Appreciation and gratitude have been so underrated. Forgive your critics and let that stuff go.
Got everybody watchin’ what I do
Come walk in my shoes
And see the way I’m livin’ if you really want to”
Trust your ability to create the lifestyle you are looking to live and start allowing life to work for you.
Got my mind on my money
And I’m not goin’ away”
As soon as you start to trust, you start to remove the fear and you start to march forward doing the things you need to do.
So keep on gettin’ your paper, and keep on climbin’
Look in the mirror, and keep on shinin’ (Shinin’)
Until the game ends, ’til the clock stop”
Life is a rollercoaster. Everything is not going to work out every day, you are not going to have bliss and happiness every day, every day is not going to feel exciting, your gonna have ups and downs.
I’m livin’ my life, my life
And I’ll never stop it”
Surrender to the rhythm of life and get into it. Instead of getting caught up in how this or that isn’t working the way you wanted it to and have some faith in your next experiences.
