Try this for a couple of weeks and see how it changes your reality: Whatever you think people are withholding from you—praise, appreciation, assistance, loving care, and so on —give it to them. You don’t have it? Just act as if you had it, and it will come. Then, soon after you start giving, you will start receiving. You cannot receive what you don’t give. Outflow determines inflow. Whatever you think the world is withholding form you, you already have, but unless you allow it to flow out, you won’t even know that you have it. This includes abundance. […]The source of all abundance is not outside you. It is part of who you are. However, start by acknowledging and recognizing abundance without.
