Up until a week ago, I literally wanted to hang up when family and friends advised me to, “Just think positive.” Oprah, Iyanla Vanzant, Joel Osteen, all of them were truly getting on my nerves. “THINK POSITIVE?! Are you kidding me? YOU try to think positive when all you’ve had is disappointment and setbacks.”
So, when my best friend-cousin called to chat about life’s problems, I MUST have been channeling someone other than myself, or maybe the wise “Buddha Shannon” who I doubted was still alive.
I also have to thank John Randolph Price for his magical offering, The Abundance Book. I started it again, for the third time, ten days ago… and guess what folks ? I’m thinking positive! Yup, me, the girl who wanted to marry Oscar the Grouch.
But back to my conversation with best friend-cousin, Tee. “Tee”, I said. “What if for every positive thought we think, someone gives us $50? And for every negative thought, the same person takes $50 away. I don’t know about you but I would try to make several million in just one day!”
So, that’s what I’ve been doing! When I wake up in the morning, I tell myself, “Self, let’s make some money today.” I imagine that instantly I get $50 for each positive thought. And each time I’m having a negative thought, I quickly try to change it around so I don’t loose a whole $50.
This might sound silly but I promise you it’s been working all week! Last night when I went to bed, I was overcome by joy. It was a bliss that was supernatural. As for my mental bank account, I add $50 bills all day. As a matter of fact, I just added another one by pausing to think about how much I love the color green. CHA-CHING!
I hear your question, “Is this really going to manifest into tangible money and the life of my dreams”? All I can say is that I surely do hope so.
I’ll keep you posted.
LIVE IN COLOR! – Shannon
