A fun and not very well known fact: you don’t need to work to get money. What do you feel when you read this? Are you sceptical or laughing at the naivety of this statement? If you feel such resentment that makes it difficult to stay open minded to the possibility that this is in fact possible, then please read on.
When I first heard this, I was very sceptical because the only way I knew how to make money was through sheer sweat and blood. This scepticism was the reaction of feeling fear. I was afraid that if I allow myself to think that way I will suddenly become lazy and unmotivated. I was simply afraid of the future.
And because of fearing that all that I learned before might just become useless to me because of this one statement, I decided to research this just to prove myself that I am right and that the world still spins the same way as it used to.
After a quick google search of “ways to earn money without working” I found things like investing, selling, ads, photography, tutoring, course creation, and other ways to generate passive income. It turned out that the statement is in fact true, but instead of getting upset that I lost this fight with myself I became excited from all the different things I can do now to increase my income!
Then a couple of days ago, I asked my boyfriend what has he recently learned about money. He said: “You don’t need to work to get it.” I looked at him surprised from his answer and felt happy knowing that he realises it as much as I do.
And for some people, like my boyfriend, this realisation does come suddenly like a light bulb that lights up above your head. Or at least it looks like that. Actually, to get to this ‘aha’ moment my boyfriend had to go a whole year thinking how to increase his income on the side of his main job.
You don’t need to wait a year or more to realise that abundance is everywhere as long as you pay attention to it and take care of by using, learning, and reaching out to it. Start today! Make that important google search! And while you at it, record how you feel in the comments below.
