Then the ship began to sink.
Immediately I felt the lack of income, every time I withdrew money the total went down, every purchase felt like it was draining the limited resources. I did without, I over-thought 'necessities', I bought food because it was cheap instead of yummy and I wasn't anywhere close to broke. Needless to say, the cycle continued until the account was empty and that shiny new life and business never moved in the profitable direction because I simply was not pointed in that direction. I was focused on profits instead of fun and just like cheap instead of yummy, I was left unsatisfied.
Skipping over the stories of all of the other dominoes that fell in the following years, I eventually got a job. Yep, exactly in the same boat as four years before but with a boat-load of more complications to make the situation at least 4 times more uncomfortable but I was happy to have the income coming in.
What happened next is the magic. Sure the job paid and paid well, I didn't like it and life was more complicated all around but the flood of abundance was almost comical. I had spent four years asking, begging the universe to let some money in and nothing, as a matter of fact, just the opposite. Then the minute I got a job and had money flowing into my bank account and cash-in-hand every night the dollars began flowing in from all sorts of unexpected sources.
The thought I leave you with is this: Is it easier for you to get your head around a one-way bank account on steady drain and be excited about your new career path or business or is it easier for you to keep your income greater than your expenses even if it means just showing up at a job you don't like?
