Like You Were Getting Paid For It

Appreciation PaysZig Ziglar once said that some people find fault like there was a reward for it.

You’ve probably known some of those people, too, right?

Like my ex-boyfriend’s mom who found a problem with every gift she received. The new tv wasn’t as big as she wanted; the replacement tv didn’t had lousy sound; the new sound bar required a separate remote.

It was easy to see why she received so much cash!

My mom does this with her cooking … whatever she serves up, no matter how fabulous it is – she’ll tell you what’s wrong with it. The crust isn’t flaky enough, the pasta is undercooked; the whipping cream isn’t stiff enough.

Like there was a reward for it.

It’s a talent, isn’t it?

I’ve got some of those skills, unfortunately. And it isn’t conducive to effective manifesting.

The skill we conscious creators want to be good at is finding what’s going right.

We want to be talented at seeing the positive and highlighting the good.

Like there was a reward for it.

Because guess what … there is.

Every time we focus attention on what feels better, we become a match for more good things – including more enjoyable interactions, more helpful people, more positive experiences, more fabulous health, more awesome insights, more delights and wonders and joys – and more financial prosperity.

When we find enjoyment, we get more enjoyable things – including cash benefits.

So you could say there is money in making the effort to find the blessing, to express the compliment, and to see what’s going right.

Abe says if a brick fell on our head every time we had a negative thought, we’d clean that thinking habit up pretty quick.

I think it could also work the other way …

like if we got paid $10 for every good thought we engaged (when we might have been tempted to think a less fabulous thought), I bet we’d have a rockin’ appreciation habit in place in no time.

What do you say we play with it?

Every time you notice you’re starting to think a not-so-great thought, pretend you’re getting paid to replace it with something more positive.
Because we are getting paid – vibrationally. In one form or another.

Like attracts like – so when we dial on the good stuff, we attract more good stuff.

It really does pay to be Pollyanna.

Let’s start thinking like we understand how the system works. 🙂

    Jeannette, You never cease to amaze me with your new, fun ways of playing with LOA and Universe. So simple, so powerful, I am so adding this to my “practices”.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Jeannnette! I love your post! I was headed home from an amazing visit with relatives. (time spent cooking, laughing, playing music, touring a plant). Turned off to drop some of the homemade treats to a sick relative and got run into by a young girl that wasn’t paying attention. I was sure the entire back end of my car was demolished. The front end of her car was barely hanging on. When I got out to look at my car, there was one small scratch and a dent in my wheel. How did I luck out like that?! I felt so lucky that I began thinking of ways to make it better for the girl that hit me.
    Yesterday, I spent the afternoon moving plants so that we could put in a decorative walk. Today it rained! Yay! That will make the moved plants so happy in their new home!!
    Today, a friend called to see if she and her husband could come in to discuss me managing their money! Cha-ching! Life is GREAT!

    I’ve been studying Law of Attraction for over a year now but I’m new to your website and posts. I love your insights on the daily practice that we all must do.I like the thought of an appreciation brick hitting me in the head every time I have a negative thought. Many thanks to you, Jeanette for your great work!

  • Nona says:

    Love this! Controlling our vibe is easier when we have creative frames for looking at it, and this totally thrusts you into the moment and reminds you of the exchange going on at all times between your vibe and the universe!
    Thanks for another great post 🙂

    Just listened to this podcast while out for a run. Indeed, you offer some of the best tools I’ve ever found. Pretty simple, right? “Find good thoughts as if there is a reward for it”. BOOM.
    This tool takes practice, and it helps me to remember that others are practicing too.
    When you find some aligned good thoughts about the current president, I hope you can share. We all know when a thought is aligned and that it’s a matter of going more and more general. I know that I get what I think about and I’d like to feel better and allowing.
    Thanks for the podcasts! They help keep me out running!

    OK, Jeannette – this is a fun, wonderful idea! I have a lot of catching up to do to earn my vibrational money. A just smacked my head today on something accidentally, and bit my tongue accidentally when thinking negatively. So your post is more confirmation for me to make changes. Thanks!

  • Kat says:

    Perfect timing for me as usual, Jeanette! Pollyanna all the way to the bank. Especially helpful during these planetary transits. It’s a very simple thing to remember to help pivot-shift into appreciation. 🎉

  • Ming says:

    Love it when you talk Money Jeannette ! 🙂 Yes, Pollyanna is a badass – I remind myself of that always.
    It would be something if we got $10 bucks for every good thought.
    I’m into practicing this even more. Like attracts like yay !!

  • Lizette says:

    Oooh! I love this post more than any other post you’ve ever posted and I’ve really loved them all!!!!!! You should get paid for this stuff!!!! 😂😂😂 (Can you tell I’ve had wine?)
