Many, many years ago when I had just started on my spiritual journey, I came across Mike Dooley. I listened to one of his first audio books on manifesting and his message really resonated with me. Maybe it was because he had been a Price Waterhouse accountant (just like me!) or maybe it was his silly stories. Regardless, to this day I remember one gem that I began using right away and it worked so well for me that I really want to share it with you.
His advice was simple: every time you pay a bill tell yourself, “Thank God I’m Rich.” This was a huge shift for me. As our household bill payer, I had long experienced the dread that accompanied every bill I paid. I viewed it as a loss, feeling as though our money was going out the window!
So you might imagine that it was a big jump for me to try the Mike mantra. But I so disliked the way that I felt about money and bill paying that I was willing to try it. And guess what – it worked! Now, I’m not suggesting that I won the lotto the next day or anything like that, but I will tell you that I felt so much more relaxed and even happy while paying our bills. Nothing really changed at that moment, except how I felt—and that has made a huge difference in my life.
