Because if you are focusing on the money, or anything you want, from a feeling place of lack, you are sending signals of lack to the Universe. And, therefore, lack is what you will receive.
If you focus on what you want from a feeling place of already having it, then the receiving will be faster for you.
This is the kind of thinking that successful people adopt, whether they know it or not.
Once you let go of being obsessed with your lack of not having what you want already, that’s when it comes to you.
Just like when you’ve misplaced your nail clippers for example.
As soon as you forget about it that’s when it shows up.
Same goes for the things in your life.
The signal you’re giving off, think about this “signal” as your feelings, usually trumps the actions you take to get what you want.
There is never a happy ending to an unhappy journey.
That is why you find some people achieve success faster than others.
Call it luck or a string coincidences but when you look deeper you will find that successful, healthy, high achievers enjoy the process more than the end result.
And once you begin to apply this concept, of being happy first before you get what you want, that is when life will be less of a struggle for you.
So your work now, after identifying what you want to be or do or have, is find ways of experiencing positive feelings as often as you can.
