Let’s face it, money doesn’t make the world go round — but we could all use a little bit more of it.
It’s easy for most to imply that if you work hard you will be rewarded well, but often that’s not how it works. Sometimes those who work the hardest see the least money, and those who slack are blessed with windfalls.
No matter your class, work ethic, or employment status, here are ideas on how to attract more money into your life.
How Can I Attract More Wealth?
1. What you sow, you will reap
We can all think of at least one person who doesn’t deserve their fame and fortune. It seems that they got to their position by building an empire on uselessness.
Why do we judge?
Whether we feel they are undeserving of their fortune, the fact is that they attracted it to themselves.
While the purpose of this lesson is not to inspire you to sell your soul, or do damaging things for the sake of more money, it is here to remind you that opportunities abound, you just have to seek them out and go for them!
An obvious example of this would be to apply to all jobs that appeal to you. You will never work your dream job, or earn more at work, if you don’t set yourself for up it.
Plant the seeds of financial gain and you will watch them grow.
2. Draw your money to you
The most challenging part of knowing how to attract more money into your life will be learning to reset your mindset — transforming it into one that welcomes prosperity, as opposed to denying it.
While this is not difficult to do, it may require some commitment and effort to grow accustomed to it.
The most important thing to remember is that you deserve financial stability, comfort, and wealth.
The harder you work at this, the more efficient these practices will be. These are quick and easy tricks to attract money into your life, and if all else fails, trick yourself!
3. Share what you have
If you don’t cling to money, if you are kind to others, and if you share what have (even in the simplest ways), you will open the door to receive blessings.
It’s tricky to wrap your head around at first, but the more you give, the more you will get.
You should not go beyond your limits or put yourself in a position where you will sorely miss whatever amount you gave away. If you won’t go hungry and someone needs it more, don’t cling to it — if you do, you will be placing more emphasis on the not-having-of money than on your spirit or the happiness of others.
This will taint your ability to attract money. That’s how the Law of Attraction works.
Give with a good heart, and you will receive.
4. Stop worrying
The Law of Attraction states that what you focus your thoughts on, you will create.
If you tell yourself you are miserable for a long enough time, you will become miserable. So, if you constantly trouble yourself with finances and worry about when your next paycheck will come, money will become a big problem in your life.
It’s always a good idea to not sweep your problems under the rug, but if you allow them to take control of you, they will consume you.
On the flip side, however, if you tell yourself that you are rich, you will become rich.
5. Have realistic dreams
Perhaps your mind is so powerful that you will turn yourself into a billionaire just by wishing it, but for most this won’t be the case.
Following the old quote, “if you equate happiness with money, you will never have enough of either,” it’s important to not aim too high in your financial goals, lest you end up disappointed.
Have realistic goals — you must fully be able to believe in the possibility of them unfolding.
Your imagination is powerful. It’s the basis of the law of attraction.
If you want to attract money, visualize your financial goals and meditate on them; they will clarify and become so much easier to achieve. You will be motivated and you will open your doors to success.
Everyone who has ever been successful started out as a dreamer. You can start off simple by imagining yourself wearing a dress that’s a bit out of budget, or by picturing yourself owning a great business.
Visualization is one of the most powerful talents our spirits have. If we can imagine it, it can manifest and we will be more driven to make those dreams reality.

7. Give yourself a little push
This is perhaps all it takes is to become the master of your own fate. Believe in yourself.
Buy a lottery ticket, or register your company name (even if you don’t have a company yet). Make a deposit on that thing you really want, or go out and find a job that pays more.
Whatever energies you put into the world, you will receive. The Law of Attraction is the answer to how to attract more money.
Remain positive and optimistic and trust that everything will be taken care of, and that’s how it will be. Of course, this comes with a warning.
Be responsible and never take risks if you feel they aren’t worth it. Don’t waste money you might need in the future.
Rather, invest in things that matter (if you are financially comfortable enough to do so).
8. Be grateful
The more grateful you are, the more blessed you will be. Appreciate every cent you have, and it will feel like more than what it is.
9. Be a minimalist
Don’t allow money to control you, for it’s a sensitive thing that has the ability to corrupt the soul. Don’t buy more than you need. You will feel less stressed, less cluttered, and you will save money too. This will make you feel richer.
10. Get a piggy bank
Open a savings account, or buy a small piggy bank for all your loose change and it will fill up so quickly, you might be alarmed by it. Again, it boils down to taking action. Invite money into your life, and it will come.
11. Reward yourself
Again, without spiting yourself in future — think like a person who is already living in abundance, even if your reward is small. Buy something for yourself, without consequence or stress or worrying.
It can be as small as an ice cream cone. The feeling of spending simply because you can will once again, make you believe you are richer than you are and that will become a prophecy. Perhaps you can buy your reward with the coins from your piggy bank!
