Creating Wealth – Opportunity Is All Around
Do you see creating wealth opportunities everywhere you look? What is your outlook on life? Is the glass half full or half empty? Do you habitually think, “What if the worst happens or do you think what if the best happens”? Do you expect the best or fear the worst. Are your decisions fear based or positive outlook based?
When presented with an opportunity, rich people see the opportunity. Poor people see the risk and fear a loss. In fact according to T Harv Eker, Rich People focus on opportunities, poor people focus on obstacles. It has been said that every opportunity for creating wealth has obstacles and every obstacle has opportunities so the legitimate question is, “Where is your energy focused”?
So let’s say I offer to take you sailing on San Francisco Bay. Here are some possible reactions
- Wow I can’t wait to go. This could be awesome, I better bring sunscreen.
- I’d better think about it. What if it is windy and cold?
- I think I’ll stay on shore. It could be really rough out there in the wind?
Are you right or wrong? All of the above are true. Which do you see, what do you perceive is your reality?
According to Napoleon Hill, nature has built man so that he has absolute control over the material that reaches his subconscious mind. In fact, no thought, positive or negative can reach the subconscious mind without the aid of autosuggestion. So what is this thing called autosuggestion?
Obviously, auto suggestion is self-suggestion. It is the process of telling the subconscious mind repeatedly that something is so until it believes it and acts on it. The word, “affirmation” is frequently used to describe the process.
There are levels of affirmation. Hill tells us that the mere reading of words is of no consequence unless you mix emotion or feeling with your words. He goes on to say your subconscious mind recognizes and acts upon only thoughts which have been well mixed with emotion.
This is, I believe why many people struggle with affirmations. The mere repeating of words on a paper does not impress the subconscious mind. We must bring feeling, emotion, belief, strength and character into the affirmation.
It has been said that the more we involve our senses and emotions, the stronger the impression on our subconscious mind.
In The Success Principles, Jack Canfield tells us that visualization greatly accelerates the achievement of any success in several ways. Visualization has become popular and is the act of creating compelling and vivid pictures and impressing them in the subconscious.
We know from many experiments that the brain sees no difference between visualizing something and actually doing it.
So the conclusion is, in order to overcome prior negative programming we need to repeatedly and with emotion, impress an image or thought into our subconscious mind.
Hill tells us to fix the amount of money we desire and to close our eyes and concentrate until we can see ourselves in possession of that amount of money. He further tells us to repeat this process daily and to also visualize ourselves performing the service we intend to perform in exchange for the money we desire.
Inherent in all this is the need to take action. Closing our eyes and visualizing money will not print thousand dollar bills. But if we continue to visualize and insist, even demand that our subconscious mind produce, what it will hand over is the plan for which the money may be accumulated,.
You must execute the plan. Now all those fears surface again. What if it doesn’t work? What if I acquire it then lose it. What if my friends don’t like me? And on and on and …
It is often said that in order to grow, we must step outside our comfort zone. But that’s where the fear is. What if it is uncomfortable? Remember when you learned to walk? Did you sit on the floor and say, “well I better not try this walking thing, it looks pretty dangerous. I might fall. I might fail. Maybe I should wait for an instruction manual”
If you did, you are still crawling right. What happened? You focused on the goal and you made a choice to pursue that goal no matter what, no matter how long it took, no matter how many times you fell. Why? Simple, you wanted the goal and nobody had programmed you to believe you couldn’t achieve it.
What’s changed? You’ve been programmed so start reprogramming today. Create that goal, make that list of affirmations, start saying them every morning and night and most importantly, get into action.
It is often said that action does more than anything else to ease the fear of trying something new.
Rich people get started. Imperfect action always beats perfect inaction. In another one of these sessions I talked about driving from San Diego to New York. Now imagine waiting to start that trip until you know every little thing that you imagine might be necessary, Where are the potholes? What will the weather be? Are there any construction zones? Will I need to make detours? You will never get started.
How do you get there? You start! And you trust in yourself, believe in yourself to handle any contingencies that may arise. Have faith in yourself my friend and you will arrive.
Can you do the same thing with your financial future? Sure! Just start. Let the road unfold as you go.
