Three things you need to move towards financial success

Do you have a system to move you towards financial freedom?

If not, would you like to borrow mine?

Today I’d like to share with you the first three aspects of my ‘ADAPTING’ formula, which you can find in “Paradigm Shift”.

I hope they help set you on the path to peace and success with your finances!

Let’s leap straight in:

1. Attitude

People who are financially successful have an attitude to go with it.

They don’t let the fear of failure stop them.

They move forwards anyway, and we must be the same!

They maintain a Positive Mental Attitude for the vast majority of the time, and when fears and doubts crop up, they recognise it and change the negative thought for a positive one.

We too must develop our PMA. It gives us great control over our often erratic selves, enabling us to look at a situation from a position of clarity and calm. It puts us in the driver’s seat and gives us perspective on our problems.

Learn, then, to replace fear with hope. Remember that all the fears you have, you have learned. They are the result of your conditioning and environment. You have borrowed them on long-term loans from friends and family.

Well, now is the time to return them! You do not need these obstacles in your life any more. Decide today that you will work hard on yourself to banish fear from your life. You have within you the power to achieve whatever is necessary to attain the success you want.

Don’t let fear lull you into procrastination. Watching your life slip by is no way to live. Instead, nurture a positive attitude!

2. Desire

Desire is the fire in the belly.

It can help us overcome our fears when it’s burning strongly enough. It drives us forward into unchartered territory because we know that if we can make it to the other side the rewards will be immeasurable.

Desire gets us out of bed in the morning. It cries out for us to act no matter how tired we feel or how downhearted we are. Inside, we know that we are moving towards something worthwhile, something that will completely change our lives for the better.

For desire to work at its optimum, we must be absolutely clear as to what it is we want. We must have our vision and goals properly defined, and they must inspire us to move forward.

Desire is fuelled by the big ‘why’.

Why are you trying to change?

Why are you working on yourself and your business when you would otherwise be curled up on the sofa watching television?

What is the big benefit of doing the things non-successful people don’t want to do?

Somewhere, inside of you, is the Divine Inspiration to move forward, to step out into the unknown, to be seen. To be vulnerable.

This is God tapping you on the shoulder.

Don’t ignore it!

Your ‘why’ must be big and bold and if it’s backed by Divine Inspiration, it will be.

It must have the power to draw you forward in the darkest moments. If you desire freedom from a job and a pay cheque that are controlled by someone else, that is your why.

If you want the freedom to work anywhere in the world, on your own terms, that is your why.

If you want the freedom to be able to spend more time with family and friends, that is your why.

Write out ‘why’ you are doing what you’re doing, and let it fuel your desire!

And if you’re not clear, clean on it. Clean using the key words of Ho’oponopono:

“I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”

Let Divinity nudge you in the right direction.

If your desires are for you, they’ll stick around and you will start to make progress.

And if they’re not, they’ll gently fall away, to be forgotten and replaced by something else.


3. Autosuggestion

We are controlled to an extent by the experiences we have on a day-to-day basis. Our senses pick up moods and messages from our environment that we may not notice consciously, but they nevertheless impact our lives.

We also form habits and act in certain ways because of the way we speak to ourselves. In other words, autosuggestion is self-programming. It is the reason we are the way we are as a result of the stimuli we expose ourselves to.

But here’s the good news: it is the only form of programming over which we have full, 100% control! This is a do-it-yourself form of learning.

Clearly, if we have habits and attitudes we want to change, we can use autosuggestion to do that. The methods for changing negative patterns are to speak to ourselves in a positive way and to write down the changes we would like to see.

You can see now why the way we talk to ourselves is so important to cultivating PMA. Writing is equally important as it makes the desired change tangible. It also imprints the new desire on the subconscious mind in a stronger way than the mind can do alone.

Remember that the subconscious doesn’t know the difference between a real or imagined event, so even if it seems silly to be thinking and writing about habits you don’t yet have, things you haven’t yet done or people you haven’t yet met, do it anyway.

The subconscious doesn’t know the difference and if you do this persistently it will have no choice but to accept what you’re telling it and begin to bring you the new habits you want.

Now what?

There is no accident that you are where you are.

As it says in A Course in Miracles, “Your passage through time and space is not at random. You cannot but be in the right place at the right time.”

And the circumstances of where you are are laying the foundations for the ideas that will take you forward to the next phase of your life.

And you have full control over those ideas!

You get to decide where you go next and what you do to maximise your chances of financial success.

So keep watch over you attitude.

Take your desires seriously.

And when negative self talk starts yelling in your ear, rev up your positive mental attitude and bash that nonsense down with autosuggestion.

This is YOUR life.

And your moment.
