Ask and You Shall Receive: Can You Get Rich Just by Asking the Universe?

By Leonard Harman

Picture it: you and the wealth you desire. Now, imagine playing that image in your mind — repeatedly and consistently. If you were so inclined to believe the Law of Attraction, this sort of thinking has the power to get you what want: the ultimate income you desire.

How is this probable?

The Universe Responds to What You Want

Your thoughts are powerful enough to create tangible results. Applied to the Law of Attraction, powerful thinking is about “acting as if.”

  • As if you were earning 10 million pesos every year
  • As if you were selling a hundred more products every week
  • As if you were so financially comfortable that you don’t have to work — ever

In other words, don’t just say you want to earn 10 million, sell a hundred more products, or be financially well off. Carry on as though that vision is already taking place.

This is not to say that you should start splurging (and end up deep in debt) like a wealthy person. Start with visualization. Write yourself a check for the multi-million-peso income, sales earned, or dream bank account. Put it in a highly visible place that it’s the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you look at in the evening.

What you put out to the universe or any higher power you believe, will come back to you. So, if you want and believe you will gain money in abundance, then you will receive it. Conversely, if you consistently contradict your desire by saying you’re probably not going to earn as much or be financially secure, you’re likely to get precisely what it is your thinking.

The mind is a powerful thing.

Don’t Just Sit and Visualize

Of course, millionaires and billionaires didn’t get rich simply by thinking it and visualizing their goals. There is some work required here. The good news is that since you know what you want, you’ll have a better idea of how to get what you want. People who have a destination in mind will know the best routes to take.

So how do you apply this to your journey to wealth?

Come up with a detailed list, a step-by-step guide to achieving your goal. For every step, consider the probable setback then create a potential solution to it. From this point on, everything you do has to mean the achievement of your ultimate income.

Next, eliminate what it is that’s stopping you from your goal. It could be old habits or misguided notions about going after wealth; maybe your upbringing has led you to believe that the need to make more money is greedy and selfish.

Whatever it is that has been blocking you from being wealthy, know that you can remove that obstruction and allow abundance to flow into your life.
