The Conscious Living Series: Part 7: Drop Your Sense Of Entitlement (By Yaz Rooney)

Why are you not manifesting the life that you want? Reason number 5 is, you have a sense of entitlement.

When they find they are not manifesting the things or situations that they want quickly and easily, many people give up too easily, saying that it shouldn’t be that difficult. Why SHOULD they have to face their fears? Why SHOULD they have to give up their beliefs? Why SHOULD they have to do this or that? Isn’t the Law of Attraction supposed to be magical? People chant affirmations such as ‘I deserve this’ and ‘I’m special’, imagining that this is all that is required to change their lives. While it’s really important to have a deep sense of self-worth, possessing it is not always the only requirement to make your dreams manifest. Sometimes self-worth can tip over into arrogance and a sense of entitlement.

Many people have a sense of entitlement because they’ve never really had to work for anything. You don’t have to come from a wealthy family to be spoiled. You could simply have had parents who gave you everything they had, without you having to do very much in return. You might go through life unconsciously believing that EVERYTHING should come easily to you, including the ability to manifest at your will. If this is you, you’ll most likely be the kind of person who is attracted to get-rich-quick Law of Attraction websites, to the Manifest-Everything-in-Three-Days empty promises that some gurus make. You most likely will not want to stick to the longer manifestation cycles that people talk about. You’re not likely to try to break a bad habit in thirty days, or want to wait a year while working on your deep issues. You’ll wonder why you should have to work at being less selfish, or why you need to put in hard work to make something happen. It comes as too much a shock to have to put in effort at something, when all your life things have come easy.

So ask yourself if you’re not manifesting because you’re saddled with the idea that you’re entitled to have anything that you want quickly and easily. Ask yourself if you’re not just a little put out by the fact that you have to put in the effort to make your dreams happen. Perhaps you’ll find that your first job will be to challenge the belief that everything SHOULD come easy for you!
