Create More Space to Attract Opportunities of Abundance

Money raining downWe all say we want more…money, time, balance, happiness, joy, clothes, electronic gadgets, etc.

And, the list goes on…

But, have you made space in your life for more of what you say you want?

When a container is full, you can’t expect to add more to it without it overflowing. Have you made room to attract the abundance you say you want?

How much do you really need?

Is your closet overstuffed with clothes that are outdated, too small no longer of interest to you?

Then, you have not created space for anything new. Imagine your clothes and shoes orderly and ready to wear with space to spare. You have just created an opportunity to attract more clothes.

Where are you spending your time?

We all have the same 24 hours in a day. How do you use yours? Are you taking on more responsibilities than necessary? Learn to say “no” (and mean it), delegate tasks when possible, trim and prioritize your to do list.  Everything is not a high priority. When your to do list is prioritized and trimmed, you leave plenty of time left to do the things that matter to you most.

What do you want to attract more of in your life? (money, your dream career, a substantial raise, more time and energy, self-employment opportunities)?

In order to attract more in your life, you must begin to show gratitude for what you already have. Be grateful for the coin you find lying on the street; be grateful for the gift of a cup of coffee; show gratitude when you locate a huge discount on something you want to purchase. When you consistently show gratitude for whatever monies come into your life, you open the door for more money to enter into your life. Abundance is not just about money. Gratitude for the things you already have goes a long way in attracting more of what you want.

How do you want to spend your energy?

Which of the things you are trying to balance can be postponed or revamped in a way that frees your mind and body? Living in overwhelm leads to unnecessary stress on your body. Is there a way for you to streamline some tasks, delegate or outsource others? Be adaptable. Recognize that things will pop up that will require you to adjust and make different choices. Give yourself permission to change things when they aren’t working for you to create balance in your home life, work, school and countless other tasks on your schedule. When things don’t get done, reschedule and allow for more realistic expectations.

It’s never too late to begin to create space for abundance.

Begin now changing your mindset about how you view abundance.

Creating space for opportunities of abundance in any area of your life does not have to be a struggle. It’s an easy transition. If you want more information about how you can enjoy a life filled with abundance, you may be interested in my More Wealth and Abundance audio and transcript.

  1. Great advice. I have to remind myself of these very things often. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. Yesterday I attended a wonderful day-long program of speakers from different fields on the topic Innovations Without Borders. They ranged from a bridge builder to a parapalegic snow boarding champion. The constant theme was being honest, authentic, showing gratitude and most important, clearing space in your life for new endeavors.

    At one time it seemed to me that clearing a closet of unused items or keeping a gratitude journal were unrelated to abundance, but my experience has now shown me that these are critical. Clearing my calendar to make time for the things that matter has been powerful as well.

    Thanks for emphasizing the power of decluttering.

      Flora, thanks for your comments. Yes, decluttering does seem to be a recurring theme in a lot of venues lately. I think it’s partly due to a sense of overwhelm a lot people feel. I’m happy to hear that you recognize the importance of gratitude and clearing space for the things that are important to you.

  3. This is a timely post for me!

    I have been making a conscious effort to minimize my possessions lately. Since October my work life has included lots of 3 week work assignments around the world. There is nothing like packing for one of these short term assignments to remind you of what you need and what you don’t. Having too much is burdensome. I have been consciously taking an inventory of what I have in my life and what benefit I derive from it. If it isn’t something I love, use or that provides value- I have been boxing it up and donating it.

    As a result, it is easier to clean my home and find things when I need them.

      I’m so glad to hear that you’ve taken steps to declutter. Isn’t it awesome how decluttering opens space for more opportunities (things) to flow in your life?
