If you want magnificent abundance you have to believe you can have it.
You must cultivate a firm and unwavering belief in yourself. You have to believe that the things you desire are possible for you, and you have to have enormous faith in your own tremendous success.
Belief is the number one ingredient to manifesting abundance. This is because when you believe that something is true, you enter that “state.”
- Do I really believe I have what it takes?
- Do I really believe that I am capable of the kind of success/money/happiness that I desire?
- Do I have faith in my power to succeed?
- Can I continue to grow my belief in myself until it becomes so strong that I feel like I already have what I want?
Another thing to do is to identify exactly what abundance means to you.
If you can get clear about this, it will be easier for you to manifest. For some people, abundance is earning a six-figure salary, while for others, it’s owning a bigger house in a better neighborhood and taking a few more vacations each year. Some, it’s the freedom to travel more and buy nice things. Someone else may have prioritized an abundance of strength or creative ideas. You might want all of these things! It doesn’t matter, what doesn’t matter is the clarity of vision.
If you have a specific sum in mind, write it down. If you want an extra 20 thousand dollars a year, be clear about it.
It will be much easier for you to believe in your ability to succeed and have what it takes if you know exactly what you want.
Once you know what abundance means to you, and accept that you must cultivate a solid belief system, you can begin to look at what comes up in the resistance to that belief itself.
We have many built-in beliefs that do not serve us in our quest for a happier and more abundant life. Often these are learned in childhood, passed on from our parents or from school.
Many of these negative beliefs are difficult to let go of, especially when it comes to money and what we feel we deserve to receive.
The biggest negative belief that I have come across in my experience is the belief that most of us share. The belief that we are not worthy.
It’s a big one, and as universal as it is, you have to do everything you can to change this belief as long as you hold it, you’re keeping yourself out of your abundance.
- You may feel that you do not deserve to receive the money because your parents never did.
- You may feel that you are not worthy to change your creative work because it is not good enough in your mind.
- Maybe you feel that you are not worthy because you have never felt proud of yourself.
- Maybe you feel that you are not worthy because your life has felt small so far.
The list of reasons why we feel unworthy is long and specific to our individual lives and past experiences.
The bottom line is that as long as you continue to feel unworthy, you use it as an excuse for procrastination.
Feeling not good enough means you create more and more reasons not to focus on what you want.
When you feel unworthy you simply create more procrastination that keeps you from getting where you really want to be. It is so easy to rationalize this form of resistance.
As Steven Pressfield says in his excellent book “The War of Art,” we do not say to ourselves, “I will never write my symphony.” Instead, we say, “I’m going to write my symphony; I will start tomorrow.”
Start changing this belief that you are not worthy today. Read stories about people who have done the things you dream of doing.
What did they do to get there? I bet none of them got there by slacking off and feeling unworthy.
At the heart of every success story is passion, belief and self-esteem.
When you have these three things you have a laser like focus to take action to make your dreams come true.

Yes it is hard work, but it is totally within your reach.
You must believe that you are 100% worthy of the incredible and infinite abundance of the Universe. Just like every single living person is.
There is no real difference between you and someone you admire who seems to have it all. Yes, they may have had a different start in life, different influences and so on, but as far as the man who is capable of manifesting whatever you desire is concerned, there is no difference.
You are capable of more than you know!
