Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone! There are so many things that we should be thankful for. For me personally, I am especially thankful for family, friends and health. Let's value the people around us and be grateful for the things that we have!
We should be thankful for money as well. If you want to earn more, invest more and save more, I strongly believe that having the right mentality should be your starting point. In her best-selling book 'The Secret' by Rhonda Byrne, she talks about the law of attraction and how your thoughts can positively dictate your actions. Here are her thoughts on money using the law of attraction:
1. Think more thoughts of abundance in a day, than of lack of money.
2. Be happy now, without the money.
3. Be truly grateful for everything you have now.
4. Give the best of yourself to others.
Especially since it's Thanksgiving, try to pass on this message to your children. Money is definitely important, but be grateful for what you have now. Having this mentality of abundance will reduce materialistic temptations, increase the desire to help others and attract more happiness. Once you stop counting pennies and cease from being a slave to money, you will feel a sense of freedom. This mentality will give you the renewed energy to earn, invest and save money. What a great lesson to teach your children!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I need to check on my turkey...
