Too many people are 'stuck in a rut'. On the surface they may appear happy but deep down, wish there was more to life. Do any of the questions sound familiar?
- Do you have dreams you want to fulfill but don't know where to start to achieve them? Maybe because of a lack of money, lack of ambition or fear?
- Are you envious when you hear how well your friends are doing? So well in fact that they can afford to live the life you can only dream about?
- Do you often get stressed over money worries or your health?
Did you answer 'yes' to any of the above?
You are not alone!
We naturally assume if we have money, we are happy and our problems are over. True, money helps solve finances but, equally true is the statement 'money doesn't buy you happiness'.
Just time set aside daily, the desire to change your life, a goal to aim for and the will to give it a go.
Where do I start?
You start by learning creative visualization. There are many tips you can learn to perfect how you do this but I will cover the basics. Take some time out of whatever it is you are doing. If you need help relaxing before you begin this process, practise some deep breathing. When relaxed, you need to visualize the goal you are aiming for. If the goal is to buy a beautiful house in the country, vizualize the house. Picture what it looks like, open the door, enter each room and admire the beauty and character when you look around each room. See yourself and your family in your home. Happy, content, free from money worries. You will get this house. Visualize this daily. Don't ever let a negative thought get in the way. Now you need to believe that you will get it. Using the example of the house, believe that one day this house will be yours. If you don't believe it, you will never get it. If you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything. You will find the richest and most powerful people in the world practise positive thinking. Many rags-to-riches stories are from people who started with nothing but believed in themselves to such an extent, they made it happen. Of course there will be people who win the lottery but if you are waiting for that to happen, the odds are against you and the chances are you never will. As you practise this daily, vizualising and believing, you will actually start to see things changing. It is amazing, astounding and almost unbelievable but it works. Remember to never allow a negative thought to get in the way. Stop the negative thought entering your head. Change it instantly into a positive thought. Believe in your goal and believe in yourself.
The power of your mind:
Your mind is more powerful than you think. It influences everything about you. It basically controls you. What it can't do is think positive thoughts and negative thoughts together. One will over-rule the other. Ensure it is filled with positive thoughts and you will see the difference.If you are finding positive thinking difficult, and it really can take some practise, especially if you are used to filling your mind with negative thoughts, I will cover positive affirmations tomorrow which are very helpful programming the mind from negative to positive. In the meantime, continue with the vizualization of that dream home or whatever other goal you are looking to achieve. I ask you, what have you got to lose?
