My clients are always surprised when I suggest they should work less but give more to get ahead.
At first it seems like a contradiction until you begin to understand at a deeper level that giving comes from the heart;
- It is fuelled by passion and demands excellence and diligence of you.
- It requires that you stand ready and willing to receive fair and generous reward for your contributions.
However, working longer hours filled with loitering, web surfing, and keeping up appearances is exhausting and taxing on the spirit. It's a signal to the universe, the God Source, that perhaps your time and talents are not worthy of high achievement and reward.
When you come from giving, you understand that your offering is of enormous value and your employer ultimately tunes into this new you, which translates into promotions and bigger pay checks.
This is not theory… I experienced this first hand back in my old life as an Equity Analyst. I cut back my work hours, maintained the quality of my work and service, and was rewarded with a promotion, pay rise and bonus.
And it was not a fluke either because my clients have done the same and have received amazing results too!
Granted, when you have an upgraded image of yourself, your boundaries change, you take different actions and you communicate differently. And it doesn't necessarily take big demonstrations to experience monumental shifts - a subtle change in your outer actions can move mountains.
Here is Abraham-hicks busting the work-hard- to-deserve-what-you-want myth:
"If you believe that you must work hard in order to deserve the money that comes to you, then money cannot come to you unless you do work hard. Financial success, or any other kind of success, does not require hard work. It does require alignment of thought."
And this article is offering you a powerful way to create that alignment in thought (and belief):
Genuinely value what you have to offer right NOW, no matter how little you may think it is and watch as those around you start to value you even more. Then you won’t feel the need to try too hard nor have to justify why you deserve great rewards and fulfilment from your job or your business.
You can apply this in any area of your life. Appreciate how valuable you are as a love interest, as a friend, as a client, as a parent... and watch as the world responds in kind.
Love and Prosperity,
