Why Setting Intentions and Powerful Goals Matter for Wealth

Setting intentions is a critical part of creating powerful goals.

Most people think that intention and goals are the same.

But if you think about it, there’s a huge difference between the two.

Today, I’ll be talking about the magical powers of setting intentions daily, and how it can get you to true wealth and abundance.


Setting intentions


Intentions Vs. Goals


Intentions and goals have been used interchangeably to describe how you’re focusing on your desires and finding ways to make it happen.

But if you think about it, intention and goals have totally different meanings.

Intentions come from the Latin word intendre or intentio which means stretching or purpose.

Meriam Webster also defines intention as what one person means to accomplish. It implies more than what a person has in mind to do or bring about.

On the other hand, goals are often defined as a limit or boundary.

It is also defined as the end toward which an effort is directed.

Goals are focused on the outcome and the future. It’s the achievement, the destination that we want to be in.


goal setting


It is also the external results that you are looking for when putting together a thought process.

Intentions, on the other hand, is internal. It’s the energy you use in your consciousness to create action.

It involves the will you need to take action at the present moment so you could work on your goals.

Setting goals give you something to look forward to. It helps you set standards, milestones, and measurements to see if the steps you take meets your expectations.

Setting an intention, on the other hand, allows you to focus on the present and raise your energy.

Doing so helps increase your will and desire to achieve your goals.

While it’s possible to set goals without intentions, the results may not bring you the sense of satisfaction you’re expecting.

That’s why setting goals and practicing daily intention-setting go hand in hand.

Intentions highlight your values and create a sense of purpose, inspiration, and motivation to achieve your goals.


Why is setting intentions important?


new year's resolution


Surveys show that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February,

And one of the biggest reasons why our resolutions fail is because of the pressure we feel around changing a new leaf.

There’s also the thing called ‘holiday remorse’, where we feel the guilt-driven response of holiday excesses like overeating or binging.

This guilt becomes the catalyst for the resolutions we create and fail at.

Since guilt is a negative emotion, these resolutions also produce negative results.

This also causes a deficit in your willpower and affects your self-worth.

So why is setting intentions more effective than setting goals alone?

Intentions are more powerful because it comes from our internal compass.

It goes deeper into our consciousness.

Intention setting directs us according to our values and morals. It requires your presence of mind and acts as a powerful reminder of our bigger purpose.

It also triggers introspection and balance.

Without intention, goals can seem superficial.


What are the examples of daily intentions?


When you set an intention every day, you’re training your mind to think of better ways to deal with stress.

Intention setting is like having a toolbox filled with solutions that let you manage and overcome daily roadblocks.

Here are some examples of daily intentions that help you achieve your long term vision and goals.


I intend to love myself unconditionally


setting intentions for self-love


Believing that you deserve self-love is a great way to start.

When you focus on your intention for self-love, it’s easier to practice forgiveness and gratitude.

Setting an intention for self-love helps you also become more receptive and self-reliant.

This means you feel comfortable with making mistakes and accepting failure as part of the process.

You also become more understanding and gentle to yourself. You begin to talk to yourself better, and let go of the unfair expectations you have. 


I intend to embrace the right process


Set an intention to be kind to yourself and embrace the right process to get to your goals.

Life comes in cycles, and every day you get to experience change and discomfort.

When you set intentions of embracing processes, you become more open to first time experiences and new things. 

Embracing cycles and processes also help you rediscover yourself and find new challenges. 


I intend to stop taking things personally


Setting an intention to stop taking things personally actually makes you feel so much better about yourself and others. 

Nowadays everyone has access to a computer or mobile device. And everyone also feels entitled to share what’s on their mind. 

Unfortunately, not everyone has the regard to think about what you feel about their opinions. 

And everyone tends to take even the small, specific things personally. 

When you allow yourself to be free of the weight of other people’s opinions, you make room for the things that truly matter for you. 

It lets you focus on what needs to be done and lets you achieve the goal you set faster. 


I intend to be productive and still get rest 


setting intentions for productivity and rest


Daily intentions can help you be more productive. 

It helps you create a roadmap and keep track of the tasks you need to do during the day. 

The right intentions can also help you increase the quality of your work and cut your creation time. 

But most of all, the right intentions also allow you to treat rest as an equally vital part of productivity. 

You need to allow your mind, body, and spirit to have time to breathe and reorganize. 

When you set the intention for balance, you also increase your sense of self-worth. 


Five Steps to Setting Intentions for Wealth and Abundance


Everything that happens around us begins with an intention. 

And when you set intentions towards the right goal, it becomes more potent and powerful. 

So here are five steps to powerful intention setting that you should be applying in your daily life according to Deepak Chopra. 


Slip into the gap 


Tap into pure awareness and go beyond the noise inside your mind through meditation. 

Meditating helps you go beyond the ego-mind and into the silence of pure consciousness. 

It also helps you go into the ideal state where you plant your seeds of intention into the three levels of your mind. 

Read more about it here:


Release your intentions and desires 


When you find this stillness, release your intentions and desires. Do this process after meditation when your mind is still open to all possibilities. 

Once you have stated your intention, do your thing and go on with your day. 

Repeat this process a few minutes every day.


Remain in a state of restful awareness




Intention works better when you function at a level of contentment instead of need. 

Don’t let other people’s doubt or criticism affect you. 

Trust your higher self and know everything will work in its perfect time. 


Detach from possible outcomes 


Detachment can be a positive thing, especially when you set specific intentions. 

Remember that attachment and expectations are based on insecurities and fears. 

When you detach from the outcome, you’re functioning on trust and the power of your true Self. 


Let go and let the universe handle it 


Speaking of trust, use your focus to set intentions and believing in the Divine Source Energy. 

Relinquish control and don’t listen to that small, cynical voice. The belief that there are things that move in faith and not logic, and you’ll be on your way. 




Setting intentions is all about functioning with your higher self. 

You can trust your gut while taking action to get your desired results. 

When you start practicing this, you’re expanding yourself to prepare for the wealth, abundance, and happiness you so deserve. 

Do you have any tips on how to set intentions and achieve the right results?

How to Get Rid of Debt and Increase your Wealth

Do you want to know how to get rid of debt and finally live the life you’ve always wanted?

Most people are worried about debt. And most are always looking for ways to get rid of their debt. 

What most people don’t know is that debt has to do with your money mindset. It’s also related to the energy you assign to it. 

So today, we will be talking about how to get rid of debt and how to increase your wealth and abundance.


how to get rid of debt


Good debt vs. Bad Debt 


What comes to mind when you hear the word debt? 

Most would have a negative notion when it comes to debt. But like money, debt can also be good or bad. 

The adage, “It takes money to make money” comes into play when we’re talking about debt, especially with business. 

If it helps you to increase your net worth, then it’s good debt. 

For example, getting a loan to pay for your college tuition can be considered as good debt. Investing in yourself and your education can help you get better chances at work later on. 

Your college degree can get you the edge you need to compete in the workplace. And getting higher degrees can also increase your chances of promotion later on. 

Getting a loan to start a business is also a good example of good debt. And so is getting debt for homeownership. 

On the other hand, bad debt involves borrowing money to purchase assets that depreciate your net worth. 

These purchases usually don’t generate income but rather become a liability. 

For some, it’s buying the latest mobile phones. For others, it’s the shopping spree. Some get new car models that cost tons of money. 

Probably the worst form of bad debt is credit cards. 

A credit card in itself is neutral. But the way you use it can go either way. 

Most of the time people who use a credit card think of it as an extension of their cash. What they don’t know is that the interest rate is much higher than the rates on consumer loans. 

This behavior causes more problems. Instead of getting out of debt, it makes it more difficult for people to pay off their loans. 


Debt and your money mindset 


debt and money mindset


In my years as a money mindset expert, I’ve encountered so many clients with debt problems. 

Almost all of them didn’t have problems creating money. Actually, they were good at it. 

The problem was, most of them couldn’t keep the money they make. 

Despite having a good job and a steady income, these clients still struggle with credit card debt. 

Some struggle to pay off their college debt or house loans. 

Some find themselves out of debt for some time. But a few months later, they see themselves in debt again. 

It’s an unfortunate cycle, and it’s something we see happening all the time. 

And the reason behind this isn’t about the debt itself. It’s all about your mindset around money. 

Your energy and emotions are connected with how you deal with debt and money. 

And the reason why you can’t get out of it is that you feel you still don’t deserve it.

There’s a lot of fear and shame about debt. This is also the reason why it’s so difficult to get out of debt. 

We are sensitive to how we deal with our finances. It can get difficult to talk about finances and be transparent about it because we fear judgment. 

Remember the three levels of the mind? We have the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, and the superconscious mind. 

[Read more about the three levels of the mind here:]

Your conscious mind may have helped you create wealth and abundance. But in your subconscious, there’s still a part of you that believes you’re not good enough. 

It’s possible that you still doubt yourself and your worth. 

That’s why it’s difficult for you to pay off existing debts. And that’s why debt becomes such a stressful thing to address. 


Why you can’t get rid of your debt 


Most of the people I spoke with about their debts often have to deal with the negative emotions they have around debt. 

Some feel shame and guilt for having so much debt. Others feel anxious and insecure about how much money they accumulated and how much debt they’ve gotten as well. 

They also fear being judged for not managing their finances and still have debt despite the increase in their income. 

Let’s take accountants for example. 

Most accountants are geniuses when it comes to fixing other people’s books and finances. 

But when it comes to their own, it’s a nightmare. 


how to get rid of debt


This is because of the emotions they unconsciously attach to their own money and finances. 

Accountants can fix other people’s books because these books their emotions aren’t involved. Because of this, they can make logical decisions and come up with the best strategies. 

But when they deal with theirs, they are usually overcome with guilt, fear, and shame. 

If you’re not able to get rid of your debt, this means there’s still an energetic imprint of your past self. Your subconscious still believes you’re not worth the financial stability you so deserve. 

Negative feelings and emotions around debt are much stronger triggers compared to having savings. 

It can reflect deeper, darker shame and insecurities about ourselves. It can also trigger feelings of unworthiness and bring you down to lower vibrations. 

You might think of debt consciously or unconsciously and you might not be aware of these negative emotions. 

But when you focus on the anxiety caused by your debts, it will be what you manifest. 

This is also the reason why people can’t go beyond debt. Even if you clear your debt in a few months, your credit card would probably get maxed out again in a matter of time. 


Energy Clearings, Forgiveness, and Debt 


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Your mindset and attitude around money is the product of all the experiences you’ve had in the past. 

Some of these beliefs may have been inherited from family and friends. Others may have been conditioned to you by society or other influences. 

But then, there’s also the universal law of money. Your wealth and abundance start with you. 

The same goes for debt. You have the power to take control of your finances and get rid of debt. 

A huge part of ending the debt cycle is to forgive yourself and clear your energy. 

Let’s talk about forgiveness first. 


debt and forgiveness


Your relationship with money relates to your emotions. And most of the time, we have negative emotions attached to money and finances.

So I’d like to remind you that money is neutral. It shouldn’t bring you pain or shame. 

You assign this emotional attachment, and you also have the power to remove it. 

You need to realize that you are not your past mistakes. You need to learn how to move forward and reshape your thoughts and emotions around money. 

One way to do that is through gratitude.

Focusing on gratitude increases your vibrations. It also helps you focus on the good things and reframes your perception. 

Forgiveness can open doors and clear up the negative energy that you have. It helps you let go and prepares you for better opportunities. 

When it does, you’ll find new and creative ways on how to get rid of your debt. 


How to get out of debt quickly


I’m not saying that a credit card is evil. Having a good credit line is what we’re aiming for.

The point of all this is for you to learn how to spend your money wisely and get rid of the blocks that prevent you from growing your net worth. 

I also want you to become debt-free in the shortest amount of time. 

The goal is to pay off the debt as fast as possible. And find the best ways you can start. 

Here are some ways on how you can get rid of debt and how to find ways to get out of debt that works for you. 


Use your credit card wisely 


debt and credit cards


Look for a credit card with the best interest rate. 

If you can, find ones that have a zero interest rate option and minimum payments that fit your budget.  

You can also look at refinancing higher interest cards so you could get a lower interest rate. 

It also makes sense for you to pay off your credit card with the highest interest rate first. These cards cost you more money in the end, so make sure to deal with it first. 


Set a budget and stick to it 


Create a budget and cut costs in all aspects of your life. 

Do a budget audit and see which parts of your current expenses you can do without. Start with the stuff you do for entertainment. 

Are you still paying for cable? How many subscriptions do you have that you don’t use? 

Check your grocery list and see which ones you can do without. Look for brands you can replace with much cheaper options. 

Assess the way you spend and see which ones you can do without. Try and keep things simple and live frugally. 


Sell some of your stuff 


debt and decluttering


Another way to get out of debt is to sell your stuff to get extra cash. 

Selling can give you a win-win situation. It helps you clear our space and gives you a way to keep living frugally. 

It can also help you let go of the negative energy that comes with the stuff you buy. 

Some people use shopping as therapy. Others buy things to impress others and improve their social status. 

Whatever your reason is, letting go of what you buy to make room for yourself can bring you peace of mind. 

It can also help you manage your debts better. 


How do I get out of debt with no money


But Gull, how do I get rid of my debt when I don’t have enough money to pay for it? 

You know what? I’ve been there before. I know how it feels to have no money coming in despite my achievements and talents. 

And I’m not sharing these things with you to judge you or your lifestyle. 

It’s not easy to take care of maxed-out credit card bills. And it takes time to completely get out of debt. 

I’m telling you these things because it can be done. You can pay off all your bills on time. 


debt free and happy


You can lessen your debts even without having the money. 

You can manage to pay off your college loan, that mortgage, and those past due credit card statements on your desk. 

And I can help you with that. 

All you have to do is follow three simple steps. 

  1. Identify what you feel about money. Doing so will help you know what to change and how to change it. 
  2. Create five accounts to help you let go of the guilt and shame you have around money. You can start with 1% for each account so you’ll have money to spend on debt, investment, larger purchases, or just to have fun.
  3. Increase the percentage as you go. Start with 1% then go as high as 5% as more opportunities come.

Learning how to get rid of debt takes more than having the money to pay off your debt. 

To get out of debt, you must first understand how you respond to it emotionally. 

When you understand it, you’ll be able to come up with the best and most logical solutions to get rid of debt.

On Saving Money: The Truth About your Savings Account

Saving money is one of the most difficult things to do for most people.

The truth is, there’s a different mindset needed to start savings.

Today, we will be discussing the truth behind saving money and how we can successfully make it a habit. 


saving money


How can I really save money?


Saving money helps people feel safer and more secure. It gives people a sense of calm, especially during times of crisis or emergency.

Have you noticed that when there is a significant amount of money in your savings account, you have more freedom to do as you please?

You can call your own shots and make life choices that do not depend on your paycheck.

For example, a healthy savings account can allow you to take a vacation or buy the things you want without thinking about the price tag.

It could also allow you to fulfill your dreams, like building a business or donating to your favorite charity.


saving money for a good purpose


Saving money has a lot of perks. So why do most people still find it hard to save?

According to a survey done by GoBankingRates, about 50% of women and 30% of men claimed that they have $0 in their savings account. 

Because of this, the lack of money became the number one source of stress for Americans. In one survey conducted by the American Psychological Association, 72% of respondents said that money is a source of stress in their household. 

Money issues are also the reason why 37% of marriages in the US fail.

If you think that having a higher income guarantee having a sizable savings account, this research proves that isn’t the case. 

Here are some reasons why it gets difficult to save money. 


When income goes up, the lifestyle goes up


Most people wait for a salary bump so that they can finally buy their dream house, dream car, or go on their dream vacation.

Being able to buy the things they previously can’t afford gives them a boost in self-esteem and confidence. They go on spending that money because they believe it will make them happier.


Expenses go higher but salaries are not keeping up


saving money and shopping


An average household in the US spends $5,000 in healthcare annually. When considering the cost of childcare, housing, and other expenses, savings fall at the bottom of the list.

With a fixed monthly income, this person becomes incapable of putting money aside.

For low-income households, savings can become a luxury they cannot afford.


Saving becomes an afterthought


Because of the increasing expenses, most people save less than 5% of their disposable income.

Most of the time, this happens only if there is money left over from paying all their responsibilities.

Some just focus on what they have now, thinking that there’s only one life to live.

While it’s good to savor the moments, some people take this too literally. They think money should be spent without thinking of the consequence.

This behavior also encourages ‘one-day millionaire’ thinking. So in the end, all their hard-earned cash goes to people, things, and experiences that don’t add up to their value.


Cultural differences



saving money at a young age


A person’s cultural upbringing also has a huge impact on their behavior towards money. 

Most Asian cultures have a strong inclination to fulfilling filial duties. This may include helping raise family members, usually brothers and sisters even as they grow older.

Or covering for hospital expenses of an aunt or uncle.

Differences in religious beliefs also impact how you spend.

All of these factors contribute to our relationship with money and can be carried on to the next generations.

So when a parent doesn’t have the right money mindset, their children tend to show the same behavior when they become adults. Children of spenders become spenders themselves. Children of borrowers become borrowers too.

“I must be a fool for not being able to save. I mean, I’ve been working for the past x amount of years, and yet I have nothing to show for it.”

If this is you, I want you to stop being so hard in yourself.

Do not beat yourself up because your life can change.

Remember the universal law of creating money? You always have control over how much you want to make.

Read more about it here:

In the next section, I will show you how to focus on yourself so that you can build back your self-esteem and be on your way to achieving your money goals.


How to Save Money


There are a lot of ways to kickstart your saving journey. If you’re unsure where to start, here are a few ideas that can help.


Track your expenses


Some people are too afraid to look at their bank accounts. 

Because of this fear, they become unaware of how much they’re spending and so they’re left wondering where all the money went.

Tracking where your money goes becomes much easier if you write it down. You can easily do this by using a spreadsheet or a notebook.

Write down all the things you’ve spent money on, whether that’s groceries or even a simple cup of coffee. 

Doing this will help you find opportunities to improve your finances.

In this article, Dave Ramsey talks about how you can start saving money. Tips that are simple and can be achieved by changing your routine and looking for ways to cut back on your spending.


Make a budget and stick to it


saving money on budget


After you have listed your expenses, you now have a clear idea of where your money goes each month.

It’s now time to make a budget.

Take note of your usual purchases and see which parts you can cut down from. 

Check alternatives when it comes to buying. Focus on the value and not the brand.

Creating a budget helps you be more mindful of how you spend. It also helps you become less impulsive when making purchases.


Make savings a priority


Instead of putting savings on the backseat, put it on the top of your priority list.

Before you spend your money on expenses, make it a point to keep a portion of it in your savings account.

This can be done by automating your savings account.

Most financial gurus would tell you that to be able to grow your savings account, you must first create an emergency fund.

As a money mindset expert, I strongly advise against that.

Emergencies should not be the reason to start saving money.

Instead of that, here’s what I suggest you do.


Work on clearing your money blocks


Here’s the truth: How you feel about money is manifested in your finances.

Just like what we have talked about regarding cultural differences, being immersed in an environment that has a negative perception of money will greatly impact your ability to earn and keep the money.

The law of attraction states you attract what you think. The thoughts you focus on turn into your reality.


saving money and good vibes


When you are saving money for an emergency, the emergency would have to appear and take that money away from you.

The good news is you can rewire your brain to focus on the positive through gratitude.

If your thoughts focus on your desires, you will have the drive to achieve those goals.

For you to change your money story, you must be willing to change the way you think and feel about money.

Tips on How to Save Money


I have talked about how you can master your cash flow and create better financial flow here:

And one of the best and fastest way for you to create savings is by setting up five accounts for your money.

The goal is to create five accounts where you can put in at least 1% of your actual earnings.

So why am I recommending this? One, it’s pretty manageable even if you don’t have much. Second, I’ve used it myself up to date so I know that it works.

This process will teach you the discipline you need to start the habit of savings. It’s also a powerful process that can help you clear your debts.

So here it goes…


saving money in 5 accounts


Account #1: [Your Name] Account

This account is dedicated to yourself. It helps you feel at ease knowing that you’re putting money in for you alone. In the future, you can use this account to build investments that would help you during your retirement years.

Account #2: Account for Fun

Use this account to take care of yourself. Spend it on things that will help you achieve a more positive outlook in life. While it’s tempting to spend less on yourself when money is tight, you must resist the urge. Avoid using this account to pay for bills and other expenses.

Account #3: Account for Large Purchases

This account is for large purchases, those items that would normally take up to six months to save up for. Use this account when you’re planning to purchase a car, a phone, or a house.

Account #4: Account for Charity

This account is for helping those who are in need. Having money in this account enables you to help other people without dipping into your other accounts.

Account #5: Account for Debt Payments/ Investments

 If you have debt, use this account to pay your debts first. It is not advisable to invest money when there is still debt. Once you’ve cleared your debts, use this money to build your investment portfolio.

If you’re currently living paycheck to paycheck and you think that this task would be impossible for you to achieve, try these saving money tips.

If you only have $100 to spend, commit the $5 for these accounts. All you need to do is put $1 for each account monthly.

As you progress, you can increase the amount you put into these accounts.

When you’ve built the habit and gained momentum, you can increase it to 3-10% of your income. If you’re earning $2,000, commit 3% of your monthly income. 

In this case, it would be $60. If you divide $60 into 5, you only need to put $12 on each account.

Once you feel more comfortable, start increasing the amount you put in and you’ll see your savings grow in no time.




 Building up your savings takes time and effort.

But with the right mindset, tools, and support system, you can easily adapt to the habit of saving money.

Focus on Yourself and Attract Wealth and Abundance

Did you know that when you start to focus on yourself, good things happen?

Focusing on yourself gives you the chance to be grateful. And when you do, true abundance, wealth, and happiness happen.

Today, we’ll talk about how you can focus on yourself and tap into more opportunities for yourself and others.

Let’s get started.


focus on yourself for abundance


What does focusing on yourself mean?


Most people usually think that focusing on yourself equates to narcissism. Some of us think it is selfish to just focus on you.

But that is not the case. It is actually about having a good sense of self-worth, self-esteem, and self-love.

Let’s define the differences between the three, so we have a better understanding of how we can achieve them.


focus on yourself and your self-worth


Self-esteem is how you think others see you, while self-worth is how you see yourself.

Self-love is accepting who you are. Self-love is also making sure that your actions affect you positively. 

Let’s compare that to narcissism. Narcissism is thinking that we are above everyone else. 

Narcissistic Personality Disorder usually involves behaviors that often lack empathy and consideration for other people. They also often have an extreme and constant need for admiration. 

Narcissists also often use harmful behaviors to manipulate others into doing what they want.

This is exactly the opposite of what we mean.

Focusing on yourself means prioritizing your needs for your well-being.


focus on yourself and shine on


Mothers often think of their families before themselves. And because of that, we often forget to focus on ourselves.

That’s why you often hear mothers talk of being too tired to do anything else.

We often forget that our self-worth defines the standards you set for ourselves. You create the space that’s supportive of your growth.

Loving yourself won’t let you get affected by negative things. Self-love reminds you of what you deserve and don’t.

So, if you know all of that, you can chase only the best opportunities that will create abundance for you.

You won’t let yourself fall into situations that will only make you lose wealth than gain wealth. 

Now, how do you make sure that you have a good sense of self-esteem, worth, and love? Focus on yourself. 


How can I just focus on myself?


But Gull, I do focus on myself. 

I get regular massages, I exercise, I try to eat healthily. And I do journaling to understand my thoughts.

But why hasn’t this created an abundance of wealth yet? 

The problem is, we often focus on other people’s success and measure it with ours.

We tend to create standards from how we see other people and from what we see in the media.

That’s the real struggle. How do we create our own standards that fit us?

Here are a few things that will help you boost your self and focus on yourself.


Receive with gratitude


focus on yourself: gratitude in receiving

Believe that whatever good you are receiving is what you deserve.

And then, be thankful rather than doubting your blessings. 

A lot of people always seem to think that if they don’t do enough to earn their greatness, but if you receive with gratitude then more of these things will come to you. 


Do things you love


Start investing time in your hobbies or learning something new.

Think of that one thing you didn’t do because you always say you don’t have time because you are too busy working on your job or business. Do that now.

When you make time for the things you love doing, you give yourself time to grow. You give yourself time to focus on what you truly want.




Write down your thoughts and feelings. List down affirmations and your best assets.

Take note of the things you’re thankful for each day.


focus on yourself and your thoughts


Journaling gives you a safe space to write down anything you are too embarrassed to say out loud.

Tracking your behaviors and feelings will help you become aware of what you should be focusing on.

Focusing on gratitude gives you less time to think about the negative situations in your life.

You’ll notice how your focus will shift dramatically. Certain people and situations become less triggering.

And all of a sudden, these things start affecting how you act and feel, and it takes away the fact that you should’ve been focused on yourself instead.


Why is focusing on yourself important?


There are many benefits when you start focusing on improving yourself.

For starters, working on ourselves will help boost our self-esteem and that will lead us to believe that we deserve the abundance we receive.

We took a few reasons from Positivity Blog to tell us why it is so important to focus on yourself.


Self-love is empowering


We tend to adjust who we are based on our social media feeds.

We do this because we feel that this is what will make other people like us.

But that is not the case. You have to like who you are for people to like you. 

Liking yourself is power. Knowing yourself is strength.

This way no one can break who you are down. And those who try to aren’t the ones you should be surrounding yourselves with in the first place.


Limits negative emotions


focus on yourself: gratitude in receiving


Having great self-esteem will eliminate the need for other people’s validation.

When you always need to hear affirmations from others, the negative things will impact you greatly too.

Focusing on who you are and what you like about yourself will save you time that you spend feeling bad about yourself. 

This way life doesn’t have to be hard too. You can start living life just focusing on you because you don’t have to impress anyone else.


Your thoughts manifest into reality


If you think good about yourself, it is easy to feel good and think good about others too.

But if you look at yourself negatively, it will also manifest in the way you look at other people. 

You always have to look within and work on that before you can make others feel good too.

If you achieve these positive things into your life, it will be easy to manifest abundance because you will think that you deserve it.

It will be easy to receive abundance as well because you know your worth, and that is what the universe will give you. 

That is why focusing on yourself is so essential because by doing this you will block what is not serving you.


How do I focus on myself and be happy and abundant?


I haven’t watched the news in years.

It’s just too much information for me to absorb. The news will find a way to me if it’s really important

While some people find the need to keep updated with the news, I just feel like it’s not for me.

Sometimes you just have to let other people be. You can always agree to disagree and be fine with it. 

The people who knew me in the past nows how much I love discussions. I love picking brains and talking things out.

But as I grew older, I realized there’s no use in convincing others about changing their thoughts. Not everyone is going to be ready to accept what’s truly best for them.

And I’m at peace with that.


focus on yourself and find peace


I don’t let other people’s opinions get to me.

The trick to this is being self-aware as well. Know what you believe in, and don’t let the negative comments get to you.

So be aware of the people you hang around with because they can affect how you think.

This doesn’t mean that you should start cutting out all the people in your life.  This just means that you have to be conscious of what information you retain from them.

According to Greater Good Magazine,  people feel more satisfied when they help others. And they feel more exhausted when they treat themselves.

I think that we live in a world where we think it is selfish to give ourselves what we want, but that is not the case. We should always find a balance of helping others but also helping ourselves.

This is our path to our happiness. And when we are happy, abundance will follow.

Abundance starts when you focus on yourself.

When you do, you realize your own worth and focus on what’s truly important to you.

Then you notice the right things and opportunities that align with your mindset. And that’s where true wealth is.
