How grateful are you for everything today? The bed you woke up in? What the weather is doing? The city you live in? How much money you have in your bank?
Gary Douglas says: Gratitude grows gratitude in others, without gratitude you cannot receive. The greater your gratitude, the more money you can have.
Do you always focus on the things that you don't have? It is great to look at what you would like to create, but if you don't look at what you have already created, you can only receive so much. How much more money could you receive if you had gratitude for everything?
The advice most experts give is that if you work hard for long hours then you will make a certain amount of money. What if this is not the only way to do it? What if there was a more fun and easier way to make even more money?
Asking questions opens you up to more ideas and different possibilities. When you ask a question and answer it, you have one idea and one possibility. When you leave the question open-ended and are really curious about a solution, you open up your mind allow yourself to become aware of unlimited ideas.
Here are 5 questions you can ask to open up your creativity and ideas to money flows.
When people travel, they generally look for things like: warm weather, nice views and a big shopping mall. When I travel, I do things a bit differently. I go to places that match the energy of what I would like to have, do and be in life. What if you were to get the feel of what you would like to create in your life and found destinations that matched that? For example, I enjoy being around riches and so that is one of the reasons I choose to be in Houston so much of the time. It has a wonderful, generative feel to it and it is a very easy place for me to be. Houston is one of the wealthiest cities in the world, it has a low unemployment rate and it is very entrepreneur centred. This matches the energy of what I would like to create.
People usually look at money and finances like it is a dense and solid subject. In this reality, money does not have a fun, easy-going and free-flowing feel to it. What if your money situation were not solid and heavy but could be light and easy to manoeuvre? How much more relaxed would you and your body be if you started acknowledging that you have more options than you have been willing to look at with all things money?
Here are 3 options you may have that you never acknowledged possible.
Curry Glassell joins her Access Consciousness colleague Megan Hill in her first episode of the What Else Is Possible Show.
Megan describes Curry as one of the most phenomenal creators in the world, and Curry puts it down to being the question “what else is possible?”.
This question can change your whole day. When there is drama or trauma, you can get to enthusiasm and possibility to get out of it a lot easier. If you have a problem, know what you can change it.
I often say it doesn’t matter who your parents were or how you were raised; wealth is always possible to create. That is because the ability to prosper has nothing to do with how much money you have but, rather, what your relationship is with the money you have.
Sadly, the vast majority of us have an unhealthy relationship with money. That’s why 70% of lottery winners lose all their money within five years. That’s why I, the daughter of a billionaire, spent most of my early adulthood living in a panic over how I would survive. And it is why millions of people born into poverty can work incredibly hard and never seem to accumulate more wealth.
In my experience, the core reason most people struggle in their relationship with money is because they are disempowered in this area of their life. Many people (particularly women and children) are taught a point of view that it is inappropriate or impossible for them to control their own financial situation. This drains them of all personal power around money and creates a situation where they will never be able to fully create wealth for themselves.
We are taught to believe that wealth comes from having access to lots of money. But experience has shown me that this is not true. I was raised in a billionaire household and yet lived most of my early adulthood in deep anxiety about my personal finances. At the age of forty, I was a single mother with $2 million of debt and no idea of how financial systems work.
Living a life of prosperity – creating the right riches for you – has nothing to do with how much money you have around you. It is about having a healthy mindset and a willingness to create.
Of course, wealth creation is easiest if you have the right tools, so here are some that I believe are key to financial freedom. Most exciting, every single one of them is within your reach, right now!
This might surprise you and perhaps sounds a little cliché, but experience has shown me that self-worth is the key to creating wealth. Why do 70% of lottery winners lose their money within five years? Because, at a deep level, they do not believe they can have this type of wealth. Or it may be they feel they don’t deserve it. Either way, this unconscious lack of self-worth drives them to make unhealthy decisions and unwise investments.
The definition of elegance is:
"Refinement, grace, and beauty in movement, appearance, or manners."
For you, elegance could be walking tall and enjoying your body. It could be wearing pearls, it could be wearing high heels. Maybe it is choosing the champagne over the $6 wine. Elegance can be an array of things.
The energy of elegance and money are very similar. Elegance makes you feel graceful and beautiful with minimal effort. When you are generating money, it is almost effortless.
Which brings me to my next point...
How often do you do these things? How often do you indulge in these energies? Do you only wear your nice jewellery on special occasions or only drink champagne on birthdays?
I challenge you to do what makes you feel elegant just for fun!
Let me know how it goes.
One of the most important things we can understand about our relationship with money is that most of our attitudes, habits, and beliefs around wealth are ingrained in us before we even understand the true concept of money. It is widely accepted that the way we see the world, and our place within it, is largely developed by the age of six or seven. Unless we confront and change these patterns later in life, we will continue to adopt the same behaviors and therefore create a financial reality for ourselves that is based on what we already believe we deserve.
I was born into a billionaire household, the daughter of an incredibly successful Texas oil magnate. Although this early life instilled many unhealthy patterns and behaviors in me — behaviors that would ultimately lead me into multi-million dollar debt — one thing I never experienced was financial lack. I never went without financially as a child; I never saw my father struggle with which bills to pay; I never knew the discomfort of not having enough food, clothing, and shelter.
To be clear, I felt the lack in many other ways; emotion, compassion, understanding, and self-empowerment. But the fact that I never had to go without in terms of basic needs, created an absence of lack in my financial universe. This has been an important factor in my role as a financial coach, as it has allowed me to help others find their way out of lack, with greater ease.
Money – it’s a topic we all have in common. Lack of money, excess of money, hard-earned money, easy money – it’s something that affects everyone. But few people have seen money from as many angles as Curry Glassell. From being born into extraordinary money as the daughter of an oil magnate, she’s had it, lost it, found it again and along the way learned so much about different people’s relationships with the almighty dollar. She’s spent years teaching people how they can change viewpoints that keep them from creating wealth, and also how to be comfortable with money once they get it.
Curry teaches a course called “Right Riches for You”, and she is constantly surprised at what stops people from earning the money they want and deserve. “When we get down to the core of people’s money beliefs on a course, there’s always a story they’re not aware of. For some it’s that their parents never had enough and taught them that money was always in short supply; for some it’s their culture or religion’s view on wealth – for me it was that I had grown up with some very wealthy people who did some very unkind things so I associated wealth with meanness and saw money as the root of all my malaise.”
