Money is Not Attracted to Desperation

by | May 14, 2023 | Personal Development

Money moves for its own reasons.

Of the many reasons it prioritizes, desperation is categorically low on the totem pole.

A beggar may receive a few coins from those who feel sorry for him.

A family member or friend may decide to help you in critical circumstances.

But in both situations, there’s a reason money did not move more quickly to the person in need. Rarely does money respond to need alone, especially large sums of money.

I asked a friend:

When you’re desperate for money, does it seem to show up more easily or does it seem like there’s no flow at all?

She responded by saying:

When I am desperate for money, I notice more the space of “how long it’s not showing up.” Then I get discouraged, and sometimes I don’t feel like taking the actions to generate money. Generating money for me involves sending out email campaigns and creating offers to clients that already are visiting. The resistance gives me the experience of no flow.

Desperation is resistance. It will give you the experience of no flow.

There will be ebbs and flows in life. We will all go through times of lack as well as abundance.

But desperation is a bad bargaining chip and one of the worst scents on anyone.

If you fail to win over a client, no problem. There are eight billion people on the planet. It’s never a joyride to miss out on an opportunity, but if you learn from the experience and adapt your approach, there’s a better chance you will land the plane next time.

It isn’t necessarily easy to set aside desperation and think long-term. But whatever you give your attention to expands. So, it is in your best interest to set aside ingrained feelings about your standing in life and instead focus on the actions that will see you thrive. It may not happen a day, a week, or a month from now… but if you stick with the process, your life will transform.
