Many people carry around feelings of unworthiness ingrained from childhood. These feelings often stem from the association parents or a religion attaches to money.

Feelings of self-worth translate into positive outer manifestations in all areas of your life. Those who feel that they deserve only the best in life attract other people and circumstances to themselves that will confirm those beliefs. When you understand that abundance and wealth are the natural states of the universe, and you recognize that you deserve to be wealthy, your actions will begin to model your inner beliefs.
