"If you want more money, BE THE SOURCE of more money for another"
"If you want to find love, BE THE SOURCE of love for another"
"If you want to be happy, BE THE SOURCE of happiness for another"
The idea is that when you find someone with even less than you, when you GIVE IT TO THEM, you will realize that you actually DO have some, and you will experience the FEELINGS of having it, and by doing that, you will attract more and more of that.
It's true. I've felt it, I do it on purpose sometimes.
Actors are trying to do it for a living.
I say "trying" because most of us aren't working anywhere near the amount or at the level we'd like, and the vast majority who enter the business quit.
You know that actor who is so wonderful to be with; so full of life, and jokes and smiles for you? He'll give you a hug when you need it, and smile for your soul, and a joke to entertain you during that party?
She might hate herself.
She might be covering up, or hiding, or just trying to feel worthy for a minute by making you laugh.
He tells you a funny story about himself to make you feel like you're not so bad.
For example, right now I'm talking about "actors" as if I'm talking about someone other than myself!
Yeah- I'm a great fun to be with, but sometimes.... I just don't believe it.
I feel like I'm lying about something, hiding, and feeling shameful about.... life.
What I've learned is that it's often just a matter of the things we are saying to ourselves, or the beliefs we have that stem from some long-ago childhood incident.
They call it a "Negative Childhood Imprint", and I recently took a quiz to find out more about myself.

I was surprised by my answers along the way because I felt like I was betraying some secret out to the internet, but then I realized how ridiculous that was.
I found myself not feeling "worthy" of a bunch of very simple things that I would easily tell someone else they were worthy of.
I mean simple things like... self-improvement, or TIME to myself.
Like I didn't "Earn it" as a reward yet.
Sounds crazy, right?
Well, that was just taking the quiz!
But after, I got some videos about learning visualization, and emotional anchoring, and projecting your desires etc- standard new-agey stuff, but I found that I didn't feel WORTHY of the effort to do it!!!
Fortunately, I changed my mind, and decided to go for it.
If you know what I mean, or know an actor (or any other perso) like that, maybe you want to share my story, and tell them to take the quiz too.

Oh- and remember- if you saw yourself from the outside, you;d probably think you were pretty damn cool.
