Do your best in everything that you do. The big secret to living is having the faith of knowing what you do stimulates the law of supply and abundance. The belief that there is always a sufficient supply of abundance for everybody is more important. Yet, this may not be easy to do if you often express dark thoughts and feelings of lack, pessimism, and negativity.

Practice looking at your life with a brighter view. Optimism is rewarding. Depressive attitudes and negative behaviors restrict the flow of supply and prosperity. Precious energy is wasted with negative thinking. So, practicing positive attitudes as often as you can, causes positive things to happen.

The world is made so that abundance comes to you whenever your thoughts and actions are in harmony with the highest spiritual power. Naturally, if you dismiss your spiritual connection to the law of supply and riches, and when you disconnect from the highest power source, sooner or later you experience something unpleasant in your life.
