YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
13. The less I do, the more I earn
If you could work less and earn more, would you do it? If you said no, I would question why. Working less means you get to have more fun. In fact, if you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work. I know lots of people who work very long hours and still barely earn enough to cover all their bills. The belief that you must work hard in order to make money is quite limiting. There are only so many hours in a day. And if you use up most of them working, you neglect your health and miss out on fun and quality time with the people you love. This affirmation is about showing you that you can create a sustainable income by doing what you truly love, and it doesn’t have to be hard or require working long hours. Entrepreneurs have an advantage because they have the opportunity to create their own business and automate a lot of the process so that eventually, they can work less and earn more.
If you have an expertise in something, then I believe you can help others on your own terms and earn more while working less. One way to do this is to increase your income and not your hours. Reach more customers or clients. This may require you to hire help like a coach or someone who specializes in that area. Of course it all requires hard work, but the idea that working hard is the only way to earn money is very limiting. A lot of people don’t believe it is possible and I can tell you that it totally is, you may just not see it yet. Many people overlook their value and what they can bring to the world so they stay stuck at jobs where the opportunity to grow or get promoted is not likely. While others feel they must prove to people that their success didn’t happen overnight, so they continue to work really hard. Maybe on some level they fear that if the stop working so hard, they may lose their job or their business will decline. This is also a limiting belief and in many cases simply not true.
Working hard simply because you believe it’s the only way to be successful is a limiting belief and you are only making it harder than it needs to be. It often keeps you from moving up at a job or growing your business because you don’t allow yourself that opportunity. There are many people who work long hours, making very little per hour and are too afraid to ask for a raise or apply for new jobs even if they are extremely valuable and underpaid. If you don’t believe there is a better way, you will find it difficult to find a better way.
You must first believe you deserve to earn lots of money without having to work hard. How does that feel? Does it feel good and exciting or difficult and impossible? If it feels impossible, I suggest you search for proof that will debunk that belief. It’s understandable to have to work hard to build a business or a foundation to financial freedom, such as going to school and getting a degree so you can get a good paying job, but the ultimate goal is to do all that in the beginning phase and not for the rest of your life. This also falls in line with doing what you truly love where now your work feels more like a fun hobby.
There are many ways of doing this. Having several streams of income such as Investments, or different businesses/products is one way. Increasing your hourly wage is another. Imagine having things run on automation or selling products or services online. Once those products are created, the only thing left is to sell them. If you have a business you can hire someone to help you grow that business that you could not do alone.
Working long hours and barely taking days off will eventually lead to burnout, stress and misery. That is a good way to work yourself to death. I want you to believe in a new way to work and create success and prosperity in your life. I believe it is possible for anyone. If you work hard out of fear, you are also blocking abundance and not allowing it to flow freely to you. The less you do to force making money, the more you will be able to receive.
