Are you playing hide and seek with success? Does it seem that the more you want it…the farther away it seems? Why is it that so many of us struggle with prosperity?
Ahhhhh, life without struggle… With money easily flowing in (and out!) so effortlessly. No limitations on your choices. No panic when paying bills; frantically scraping funds together. Relaxing vacations with friends and family (or on a private beach with a personal chef!). Shopping on a whim, pinching pennies a thing of the past. Sound like an impossible dream?
Perhaps it’s time to make a radical change. Could it be that a shift in thinking would make all the difference? Most of us think we have control over our thoughts, when the truth is that we are unconscious; on auto-pilot the majority of the time.
So, how can we change?
- Practice conscious thinking: Find ways to remind yourself to make conscious choices. Leave yourself notes around the house and office, such as “I am present at all times” or “I make conscious choices”. Set reminders on your smart phone and/or computer with affirmations, such as “The world is conspiring in my favor”. Ask others to remind you if they notice that you are talking negatively. Being accountable to others is tremendously helpful.
- Identify your trigger words: What words will remind you to be present? Which ones send you down self-destructive paths? Identify and leverage them to your advantage.
- Empower yourself. Make choices that are in your favor. Choose wisely; considering the possible outcome. Allow your intuition to guide you, rather than your emotions.
If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always gotten. Don’t let what others say and/or do affect you. Ever notice how others seem to be threatened by your success? And try to derail you? Choose to be successful. Tune out the negative and allow in the positive…and watch the magic happen!
Make this the year you actually say NO to what you don’t want… and YES to what you DO want. Please share your questions and comments below. What worked? What tweaks did you add to make it yours? What questions do you have? I’d love to support you in any way that I can!
