101 Ways To Magnetize Money

November 23, 2008 by Lulu in Save Money with 28 Comments


101 Ways to Magnetize Money by Matt Furey is a book about attracting, or magnetizing, money to your life. I received this book from the promoter to review so let’s go ahead to see what I found out.

The first thing I noticed is that the book is a very easy read. Every tip begins on a new page and some are a few sentences long while others are a few paragraphs.

The book is written in simple language and is very easy to follow along. The author suggests other books or websites that he found helpful right inside of each tip so that you can go ahead and look them up for further information.

101 big 196x300 101 Ways To Magnetize MoneyThe tips mainly focus on changing your mindset so that you can attract positive feelings into your life. This positivity will then attract money into your life in a number of ways.

Matt talks about being grateful for what you have. Far too often we complain about life without realizing that there is always someone in a worse off situation. I have been guilty of this myself…when I was working last year I complained all the time about this one person who made my life miserable.

What I should have focused on was the fact that I even HAD a job to go to every day where someone could get on my nerves. Looking back on this today…I see so many people who have lost their jobs…yet I can still pay the bills. I do not have to like EVERY single person I work with and I can go home and not have to deal with that person.

Matt suggests that the first thing we need to do is:

Tip 1 Start The Day with YES energy. Far too often we roll out of bed all grumpy and this clouds the rest of the day. I used to do that ALL the time when I worked at the restaurant. I would get up and groan at the thought of what I had to deal with.

The business was not doing well and my paycheck was suffering. When I developed a better attitude it seemed like everything went better and we made more money. Of course I ended up leaving that job…which brings me to another tip:

Tip 15 See Yourself DOING

This tip really means that you need to visualize exactly what you want. I wanted to leave the restaurant and go back to school. I saw myself going through the process of filling out the applications, registering and even going to class in my mind.

This detailed visualization allows you to see every step of the final goal and it is a mental checklist that you can use to complete your various tasks to get on the path to magnetizing money.

Tip 58 Throw Out The Junk

This is a tip I have recently started taking a closer look at, even before I read the book and I am glad to see it listed. Having a little bit of disorganization is good as it fosters creativity but most people confuse this with clutter.

I grew up not having much so I used to hoard stuff. I thought that I had to keep things because having ‘stuff’ meant that you were making it. I am a very emotional person and I especially hold on to items that have some kind of emotional meaning for me.

I realized that I had to throw out the stuff that was not making me a better person in order to make space for the things that WILL positively enrich my life.

Tip 51 Pay Yourself First

This is a tip that many personal finance bloggers already know and Matt emphasizes it in the book. He says that just knowing you have the savings ready will attract more money to your life as you are confident and able to take on tasks better.

Tip 52 Give Money Away

In this tip he says that you should give to those who are less fortunate than you are. I was always a bit leery of giving money away when I did not have any myself. How could I pay my bills if I put money in church or gave to the Red Cross?

Well I still don’t give to the Red Cross …but I do put money in church every Sunday. It started with $1 each time and now I put $5. I know it is not much….little kids next to me are dropping tens in the basket but I am making the effort to put money in. This money goes to the less fortunate and karma returns it to me.

Since I started putting money in church the blog is doing better, I feel better and life just seems to flow better. I do not know if it is as a direct result of giving but it is not hurting.

Tip 72 Don’t Be Afraid of More Taxes

I think this is a hard one for people in the US to deal with. I grew up in a country where we did not pay taxes like in the US.  As a result, the government did not have the money to build all the great roads and bridges that are in America.

It was not difficult for me to make the mental transition once I moved here because I saw all the wonderful things that ARE available because of the taxes that we pay. Instead of crying about the taxes, just be greatful once again that you do have a job and great roads and all the other things that come with that.

There are many other tips in the book that tell you little ways to improve your mindset and improve your financial karma. Some of the tips deal with a little bit of Feng Shui, some deal with more spiritual concepts but all of the 101 tips are doable.

I will be looking at implementing more of these tips in my daily life so that I can attract more money and wealth into my life.

    Nice summary. I like Tip #58: Throw Out Junk.

    I try to purge my possessions at least once a year. I go through my clothes, my books, my kids’ toys, etc. Not to say all of it is junk — but if you don’t use something during a year, chances are you will never use it again. So better to give it someone who WILL use it.

    We collect all these things and donate them to a charity like ARC, Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc.

    It feels so good to “lighten the load” and get rid of some of your material things. I highly recommend it.

    @ Debt Reduction Formula
    Thanks for stumbling!!!! I also purge stuff….just not as often as I should. I actually went through my closet and found clothes that I have not worn in three years. :-)

    The book is really good.

    It seems you have given it a positive review. Is there anything new to the list than the normal standard tips we usually hear? Do you disagree with certain tips? Do you think some things were left out that could have been added? I’m just curious because since it is such a quick easy read I would like to read it and am looking for more information.

    @ Craig
    I disagree with the tip about always flying first class. To me this tip goes against my frugal nature and what do you really gain from flying first class.
    He advocates that flying first class will attract money because you are living the lifestyle that already has money…but coach is good enough for me. :-)

  6. CraigNovember 24, 2008 at 5:27 pmReply

    @lulugal

    I agree with you as well. I understand what he is saying in terms of the “dress for success” mantra. But first class is so expensive. I hear those once you fly first class you can’t go back to coach. My parents recently flew first class on an international flight. Of course this was after years of saved up miles to help expense the costs. But they said it was totally worth it. Must be nice for those people who can do that regularly.

  7. LuLuGalNovember 24, 2008 at 5:33 pmReplyAuthor

    Well I understand dressing for success…but in my case it is a bit extreme. I guess he started doing that when he could afford to pay for it.

    Right now it would just be silly for me to fly first class. I prefer to attract my money in other ways.

    The majority of the tips are doable…….I don’t think he was saying the ONLY way to be successful was to do all 101 tips at the same time.

    Interesting article I liked the positive nature of the book. As we all try to make more money it is also wise to see how we can save money on things we are already using. The CDRP can help a family save up to 40% on their auto insurance.

    This seems a lot like “The Secret”, but without the whole “genie in a bottle” mentality. I don’t know if you saw or read “The Secret”, but it made sense to me until they started claiming that your thoughts can create things…somehow…someway….you will get that BMW if you just believe. LOL

    I’m definitely a believer that positive thinking gets you further than worry, stress, and negativity. If you feel that you’re going to fail, chances are you probably will.

    I am living in a wonderful 1940’s studio, however, my belongings don’t have much space. I have two new rules: 1) Don’t purchase anything new..help friends move and find new treasures, Salvation Army has 50% off days every week. Free books at Friends of the Library etc. 2) For every “new to me item” that I bring home, I must donate, give away or sell three items! The items do have to be of like items…one new shirt…out three articles of clothing. One new book, three gotta go! It’s feels great and I have given a ton away to friends and hostesses as gifts!

      I think it is very important to give thanks for what you have because too often we overlook the praise giving part of our lives.
