While traveling to NYC last night, I ended up reading a book called How Rich People Think by Steven Siebold. I suddenly got it. Millionaires are people just like us BUT they are not afraid to dream BIG, go BIG and ultimately not afraid to play BIG. For them life is a game played with easy and deep unconditional faith. Contrary to popular belief, these people are not rich because of some kind of luck or some kind of external circumstance. They are rich because they are not afraid to sit down, meditate, dream BIG and then GO BIG. They are not afraid to execute their BIG ideals and they don’t stop until they reach their goals. No matter what. I always subconsciously knew that dreams are here to be fulfilled and lived by. Think about it! What’s life’s purpose? From my perspective, life’s purpose is to be happy! When are you happy? I am assuming that you are happy when you are living your dreams. Some people are so afraid to even dream, let alone dream BIG. So no wonder these folks are feeling jealous of other people and stuck in life. Btw, as for jealousy, it’s a great tool because jealousy is the ultimate guide showing us that we should be doing something similar to what the object of this negative feeling is doing. The truth is that it’s their egos that are blocking their way to ultimate happiness. Once they allow the abundance to enter and show them the way, the negative jealousy feeling will disappear. Therefore, be thankful for your jealousy feeling. It’s your guide. Embrace it and learn from it.
Rich people know that dreaming BIG and LIVING their dreams is the number one priority in order to actually become rich. The bottom line is this: In order to become rich you have to expand your mind. And let me tell you, it’s not that easy. What do I mean by expanding your mind? I am talking about forgetting all of your fearful beliefs and allowing abundance and love to enter into your life. Abundance is the opposite of lack. When you have a lacking mentality, as most of us do, you can’t attract or create any positive outcomes in your life. There is no way you can become rich without first expanding your MIND! Therefore, being rich is actually an internal job! You must first see yourself RICH and throw away all those blocks that are holding you back and then you may start attracting abundance, in the form of money, into your life.
Have you ever wondered why so many “quick” millionaires lose their “fast” money overnight? Because they don’t have the proper mindset needed in order to manage the wealth or, better yet, manage this kind of energy in their life. Money is pure energy, nothing else. In order to manage this type of energy, your MIND must be ready! Otherwise, you will lose it all.
Now, how do you expand your mind?
- By daily meditation.
- By daily affirmations.
- By thinking RICH and ABUNDANT thoughts!
- By believing YOURSELF and by actually LOVING YOURSELF.
Therefore, here we go again. Let’s do this experiment. For the next 30 days, let’s meditate daily and work on expanding our mind. Every day, sit in a quiet place and close your eyes. Imagine yourself living YOUR DREAM and an abundant life full of prosperity and financial independence. Think about what you would do with all the money in the bank account. How would you spend it? How would you change the world?
Set aside 10 to 15 minutes to do this daily practice. Observe what comes into your mind while meditating. Be prepared to face your fears. Your ego will be jumping like crazy and will tell you that you are ABSOLUTELY CRAZY and not worth it. Expect to hear the following: “ Who do you think you are?”, “Do you really think you can change the world?”, “It’s a total waste of time”, “Wake up and come back to reality”.
You know what to do when you hear this? Smile and say “Thanks, dear Ego, for telling me this useful stuff, but thanks – I am going to pass. Dear Ego, if you don’t mind, I am going to follow my intuition that knows very well what’s best for me. And my intuition is actually telling me to become rich and free in order to use the financial resources in a proper way and make a positive impact… [Or whatever you want to do with your money – fill in the blanks]”.
It’s absolutely essential to monitor your EGO / FEAR thoughts, because that’s the only way you can gently break the vicious circle and win over your ego. Therefore, take notes. Gently talk to yourself and trust yourself.
Let me know how everything goes for you. Can’t wait to hear your stories!
Have an abundant day and prosperous day!
