Whenever you’re feeling down on your luck or efforts, how many times have you heard someone say, “Just be positive, it will all be okay”?
Or how many times have you told yourself to keep your chin up and that things would look better in due time?
I think we’ve all experienced and done this at some point.
When I was working hard to get rich, I repeated these phrases to myself ALL THE TIME — I did everything to try and stay positive when things got hard. But then one day, all of that changed.
I was done with positive thinking. And it was when I flipped that thought around, that things really started changing and looking up and the fun started.
What do I mean? Well, let me start with this example:
- On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest) imagine you are a person with a level 2 strength of character and attitude looking at a level 5 problem. Would this problem appear to be big or little? From a level 2 perspective, a level 5 problem would seem like a big problem.
- Now imagine you’ve grown yourself and become a person with a level 8 strength of character. Would the same level 5 problem be a big problem, or a little problem? Magically, the identical problem is now a little problem.
- Finally, imagine that you’ve really worked hard on yourself and become a level 10 person. Now, is this same level 5 problem a big problem, or a little problem?
The answer is that it’s no problem. It doesn’t even register in your brain as a problem. There’s no negative energy around it. It’s just a normal occurrence to handle, like brushing your teeth or getting dressed.
It gets easier the higher the level you’re at. Now why do you think this is?
It’s simple — it lies in what I like to call “power thinking”.
What’s the difference between the two? Read on to find out…
“Power Thinking” Vs “Positive Thinking”
How is “power thinking” different from “positive thinking”?
Well, the distinction is slight but profound.
With Positive Thinking:
- People use positive thinking to pretend that everything is rosy, when they really believe that it’s not.
- People believe that their thoughts are true.
With Power Thinking, however:
- Everything is neutral — nothing has meaning except for the meaning we give it.
- Our thoughts are not true, but since we’re making up a story anyway, we might as well make up a story that supports us. We don’t do this because our new thoughts are “true” in an absolute sense — but because they are useful to us, and feel a heck of a lot better than non-supportive ones.
So it all comes down to this:
If your subconscious “financial blueprint” is not “set” for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know, and nothing you do will make much of a difference.
After 14 years of struggle I finally changed my thinking — I went from positive thinking to power thinking — and the first thing I did was commit to my success, stay focused, dedicate 100% of myself, and played the money game to win! I swore I would focus and not even consider leaving this business until I was a millionaire or more. I became a level 10 person.
This was radically different from my previous efforts, where, because I always thought short-term, I lacked focus, I would constantly get side-tracked by either good opportunities, or when things got tough. I convinced myself “everything will be okay” (positive thinking) if I kept my eyes and ears peeled for any opportunity that came my way.
It’s not enough to be in the right place at the right time. You have to be the right person in the right place, at the right time.
If You Want To Change The Fruits, You First Have To Change The Roots
If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.
In every forest, on every farm, in every orchard on earth, it’s what’s under the ground that creates what’s above the ground. That’s why placing your attention on the fruits that you have already grown is futile. You cannot change the fruits that are already hanging on the tree. You can, however, change tomorrow’s fruits. But to do so, you will have to dig below the ground and strengthen the roots.
You gotta work on that POWER thinking.
What you cannot see in the world is far more powerful than anything you can see. Money is a result, wealth is a result, health is a result, your weight is a result. We live in a world of cause and effect.
A lack of money is never, ever, ever a problem. A lack of money is merely a symptom of what is going on underneath.
And all that lies in how you think.
Whatever results you’re getting, be they rich or poor, good or bad, positive or negative, always remember this:
Your outer world is simply a reflection of your inner world
In other words, everything you see or don’t see in your life, do or don’t do in your life, everything you have or don’t have… is a result of who you are on the inside. It’s that simple.
Now how do you change your inner world if you’re not getting the results you’re looking for? The first step — awareness. Becoming aware of those thoughts that are creating those feelings, which are driving your actions, and causing your results.
So I ask you this: are you a level 2 person, a level 5 person, or a level 10 person? Are you being held back from living the life you’ve always wanted because of “positive thinking”?
If so, join me for my free web class, Don’t Believe A Thought You Think (airing April 16-22) and discover how to make power thinking a habit so you can master your life and become truly unstoppable.
You want to be living life to its fullest by fully taking control of your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
You want to be fully aware of yourself and make choices based on your inner power, not judgment or fear. Judgment and fear will keep you from having what you truly want in life, and that’s no way to live.
So to make sure that doesn’t happen to you, I highly encourage you to join me on my class as my guest. I know this class will make a huge impact in your life.
