Creating abundance isn’t always done with savvy business decisions, wise investments and betting on the right horse at the track. While those things can be part of making financial gains because they show belief in the act of attempting to get more money, it’s not necessary for you to have money to begin creating abundance.

If you think that you have to have money in order to make money then it’s time to start viewing money and prosperity differently. In above illustrations each act required money to start with; however, if you look closer, they have something else in common.

Whether one is making an investment or placing a bet, each act has the person acting on the faith that they can benefit from what they’re doing. The person betting on the horse has faith that his horse can win and give him a financial gain. The person investing into a business or the stock market has faith that the decision can make him money. The problem with betting on a horse is that most of us also know it’s a gamble and there is often a certain element of fear about losing that sabotages even the best intentions around gambling. Typically the person investing in the business or the stock market has more underlying beliefs that they are making true sound investments than the person betting on the horse, thus increasing their chances of feeling good about what they are doing.

Each one is aware that there is some risk in using these methods of creating abundance. Yet they do it in the faith that it can work for them, and in the hope that it will, but their underlying “feelings” around their choice is what determines the success of the investment or of attracting money in from another avenue.

Of course it is important to note that not everyone who makes a risky business decision will see financial gain. And every horse cannot win. So there’s no way that every person, no matter how much belief they have, can make money in this way. Yet creating abundance in your own life is possible, and it doesn’t require, like in the case of the horse better, that others lose so that you may win.

Foremost is the belief that the universe or God provides abundantly. There is more than enough for everyone. No one has to go hungry so that another can eat; no one has to lose so that another can win.

Once you start to believe that there is enough for you (without it meaning that there will be less for someone else) then you free the way for yourself to start creating abundance in your life. And once you believe that it’s not necessary to spend money to make money, you’ve cleared another hurdle that holds many back.

By allowing yourself to view money and prosperity differently, choosing to believe and feel abundant before you actually are, you become a match to attracting abundance. The Universe naturally will orchestrate things in unbelievable ways to make it your reality.
