The tighter you try and hold on to something that you are afraid of losing, the more you are pushing it away. Those thoughts are filled with fear, and if you continue to persist, what you fear the most will come upon you. Remember what Job said, "the thing I feared most has come upon me."
If you are afraid of being poor, that is all that you will attract. But if you believe that you deserve only the best, even in the worst situation, you will begin to see your life change towards that good that you strongly and undoubtedly believe that you deserve!
Fear nothing - just think about what you want, relish in that good thought. It feels so much better!
