This doesn't have to be so hard

The other day my coach, Steven, had me reeling. "Lauree," he said, "For some reason you think money and a husband are difficult to get."

"It's as if you believe that you have to change who you are in order to get what you want, when in so many other areas of your life you've proven that doing the exact opposite works so much better."

He's right.

I have made a habit of taking naps in order for great opportunities to show up. Then they do.

I have shared love generously with people I care about and received more love and support in return than I imagined possible.

Why do being financially buoyant and having a fulfilling romantic relationship have to be any different?

The difference is that I think they are different.

You mean my future husband magically appears while I'm taking a nap?

I'm pretty sure the answer is supposed to be Yes, but it doesn't feel that way.

I think that I am not good enough or aren't doing the right things in order to get them. I need to be prettier, get it.

I'm making this so much harder than it needs to be.

What helps me succeed in other areas is that I believe I know what I'm doing.

I trust my intuition. I notice what works, smile widely when it does and then do it again.

Now I need to believe it in these areas too.

I need to see that doing what I love to do, and being myself allows money to appear and great guys to be attracted to me because (1) it's true, (2) it's easier, (3) wouldn't it be awesome if it were true and that easy?

Number three has me bouncing up and down in my desk chair like I just won a prize.

I did. I am giving it to myself.

A six-figure income and the man of my dreams are within my grasp and only a few naps away.

Guess what I'm doing this afternoon?


What are you making harder than it needs to be?
