Because most of us were programmed to get a particular type of job, secure a 30-year mortgage on a three-bedroom house, and put our nose to the grindstone to get a five percent raise each year.
Well, that’s not how I want to live.
And I’m guessing it’s not how you really want to live either.
I want to be free to do work that I absolutely love, create the lifestyle of my dreams, and earn all the money I need to do anything and everything I want to do.
And I’ve accomplished all of those things. However, I knew I had to think and act in a specific way to get there.
And that’s where most people run into roadblocks because we’ve been taught that we need a good education and years of experience to achieve our dreams.
But that’s not what leads to great success.
This is what determines results
A high level of success, including financial abundance, is something we magnetize to ourselves through our consciousness.
So, if you’re interested in making a significant improvement in your financial position, I suggest you focus your attention on developing a consciousness that radiates prosperity.
You can get started by writing down a powerful money affirmation that is meaningful to you. Then, every day, write the affirmation 100 times and read it aloud in a manner that is fueled with positive emotion.
By repeating this process each day, it will begin to alter your conditioning by depositing new creative energy in the treasury of your subconscious mind. And that will move you in the direction you want to go.
How much money do you really want?
A minute ago, I mentioned that I had to do certain things in a specific way to create the life I want.
Listen, there’s no mystery here…
We always reap what we sow.
Saying you want more money is not good enough to create a substantial jump in your income. Think about it. An additional five hundred dollars a year is more money. If you want a lot more, you must decide on a specific figure that really excites you and demand it.
And let me tell you something…
No matter what the figure is, you ARE capable of earning it—and a lot faster than you think.
But first, you have to make a committed decision to do it.
Create a new image
Write the amount of money you want on a goal card and say your goal in the present tense, as if the money is already in your possession.
“I’m so happy and grateful now that…”
Thinking and feeling that you already have the money creates an image in your mind that begins to move into form.
Next, look at the dollar amount you want and seriously consider questions like these:
• How can I do my job (or my work) more effectively?
• How can I improve the quality and quantity of the service I render?
• How can I create passive streams of income that will help me multiply my income?
Break it down to the ridiculous
Now that you know how much money you want, are you open to playing a little mind trick that will make it easier to start moving toward your goal?
It’s what I do whenever I set a big financial goal: I break it down into smaller chunks.
Here’s a simple example of what I mean…
Let’s say the amount of money you want to earn is $1,000,000 a year. Right now, that may seem impossible; however, breaking it down makes it seem more manageable and less intimidating.
So, let’s break down $1,000,000 a year into monthly, weekly, daily, and then hourly numbers.
A million dollars a year is equal to $83,333 a month. Dividing that amount by four gives you a weekly goal of $20,833. That number may still sound too high; however, if you divide it by five, you’ll see how much you would need to earn per day–$4,167. Finally, divide the daily number by eight, and you’ll have an hourly rate of approximately $525. While that number may still be intimidating, if you brainstorm ideas, I bet you’ll find a way to get there.
Or here’s another approach that gives you more flexibility. Break the million dollars into quarterly goals—making each quarter larger than the previous quarter.
For example, your first quarterly goal might be $100,000, your second could be $200,000, and your third and fourth might be $300,000 and $400,000, respectively. Then, you would get quiet and ask yourself what you can do in each quarter to reach the goal you’ve set.
Approaching your annual goal this way will give you time to build momentum and increase your sources and quantities of income.
Looking at your money goal from different perspectives is an excellent strategy for earning more money than you ever have before. But only if you are also developing a prosperity consciousness, working on expanding your mind, and acting on your ideas.
When you commit to a dream and really go after it, your subconscious mind comes up with ideas to make it happen. To keep your subconscious mind focused on what you want, carry your goal card with you at all times and read it several times every day.
And every night, ask yourself, “What is one thing I could do tomorrow to move toward the achievement of this goal?” Write down your answer and make it a priority the next day.
It’s not about the money
The greatest reward of reaching an exciting money goal is not the amount of money you earn. It’s the kind of person you must become to get there. You must bring more of yourself, more of the potential inside you, to the surface.
Money is important. It solves a lot of problems. However, money is a means to an end—it allows you to provide service beyond your physical presence.
Are you ready to think and act bigger so you can achieve your financial goals?
You may not believe it now, but I know—without a shadow of a doubt—that if you really put your mind to it, you CAN do it. And what’s more, it can happen much sooner than you think.
To your success,
