remember talking to a good friend, Ivan, who owns a chain
of hotels across the United States and is now expanding
into Canada and overseas. He explained he had come from
an immigrant family; his father worked as an accountant
and later opened a retail store while his mother put herself
through school - eventually becoming a nurse. I'm not
going to bore you with his entire life story. But my point
is he didn't have a family that gave him a million dollars
to start his venture. Instead he started off working for
his father, eventually took over the business, bought
another - made it a success - sold it and bought another
until he got his first hotel just outside Dallas. I asked
him: "Were you ever nervous? Did you ever think about
failing? Did you ever have those what if thoughts?"
He answered: "They entered my mind - but I dismissed
them rather quickly - I just thought about making it happen
and convinced myself that it would happen. After that
I never doubted I would succeed - I just didn't know how
big this whole thing would get." In short Ivan developed
a positive wealth consciousness - without being aware
of what he had technically done - but he had trained his
mind and subconscious to focus only on creating wealth.
what is a Positive Wealth Consciousness?
This is the process of believing that you can and will
make money. It involves believing that it is your right
to make money and create wealth. It requires that you
focus on all the good things that your wealth can do for
you and those around you. It means understanding that
if you have more wealth you will help more people. It
means putting your ego aside - not desiring wealth so
that you can show off and say: "Look at me, I'm rich."
Instead - it means saying: "Yes I have a lot of wealth
and that allows me to take care of a lot of people - including
my family and all those that I help when I spend my money."
Yes you will spend your money - let's face it - the more
you have the more you will spend. This is the basis of
Creating a Wealth Consciousness. Because you believe that
having money is not a good thing - then you will never
have any money - no matter how hard you try. Once you
get this new belief - that having money is a good thing
- into your system then you can begin attracting Wealth.
order to attract wealth you need to first look at where
you are now and then create a realistic plan for the next
3 months, 6 months, year and five years. If you're in
debt and don't have a job - aiming to have a million dollars
in 6 months is not being very realistic. Instead your
first priority should be to get a job and get out of debt.
If you already have a job and you want to make more money
- then give yourself some realistic targets for the next
3 months, 6 months, year and 5 years. Now I know some
of you will say it's difficult to make money - I don't
know what to do to make more money - I'm in debt and don't
know how to get out. For every problem there is a solution
- otherwise we wouldn't have problems. Focus on finding
a solution. Train your mind to focus on the solution.
Start sending the messages to your subconscious that you
want a solution. Do this regularly and you'll get answers.
The money won't fall from the sky but you will be guided
do you train your mind? You first focus on what you want.
Let's say you want to find a job - you start telling yourself:
"I know what to do to find a job. I'm doing the right
things to find a job. I've got the right job." Then
start thinking of all the possible things you can do to
get a job. I know you may say: "I've done all that
- and still have nothing." The only reason you don't
have anything is because you're not looking in the right
place. You're not paying attention to the signs along
the road. You may be dead set on getting a particular
job and ignoring all kinds of other opportunities. The
same applies if you're trying to make more money.
may be bent on making money a certain way - in the process
you're ignoring the other opportunities that are being
presented - often dismissing them. I had a student who
wanted to make more money. He thought the only way that
he could make more money was by expanding his business.
He did that - but didn't make as much as he thought. Once
he started working with the Creating Power System he started
paying attention to the other opportunities. He ran into
an old friend while he was car hunting and to cut a long
story short - they decided to partner in some real estate
ventures - and things took off. He still has his business
- but the additional money he wanted to make - money that
he thought he could only make from his business - came
from a completely different source.
only happened because he paid attention to the signs along
the road. He was presented with a number of other opportunities
before partnering with his friend - but they didn't seem
right to him. Eventually he made the right choice because
he was calm, and believed that he would get the right
opportunity at the right time. That's the other ingredient
needed. You have to be patient and trust that you will
get what you need and want at the right time - but remember
- you have to put that ego aside and go with what is best.
friend Ivan, who owns the hotel chains, examined a number
of business opportunities before buying his first hotel
- including buying a 50-percent stake in a used car lot.
The used car dealership is still successful - but it pales
in comparison to where he is now.
the used car dealership he said: "At the time - it
just didn't feel right. I went through the books, knew
it would be successful - but I just didn't see myself
doing that." You have to go with what fits for you
- just because it's a good opportunity - doesn't mean
it's right for you. Ivan passed on that deal and 2 months
later he bought his first hotel. That was in 1993. But
he was willing to wait for what he thought felt right.
You Can Do To Attract Wealth
are a number of things you can do to attract wealth, no
matter what your situation. You simply have to get your
mind to work for you and not against you. Here's a little
exercise you can do. Get a notepad and a pen. Now start
thinking about making money or improving your finances.
Write down all the thoughts that come to mind when you
think about improving your finances or creating wealth.
Be honest - only you will see this list. Keep going until
you feel you've had enough. Keep adding to that list over
the course of the day. Then when you feel you've got enough
- take a look at what you wrote. Underline the thoughts
that are positive and circle the thoughts that are negative.
How many are negative? Any negative thought you have about
money or improving your finances is tied to a belief that
you have about money and only works against you. If you
think it's difficult to make more money - you'll only
have difficulties when it comes to making money. Why?
Because your subconscious mind is only going to create
your reality based on your beliefs. It doesn't care if
these beliefs are good or bad for you. It simply acts
on your instructions - and those instructions are your
thoughts and beliefs. So change your
and you change your beliefs. Change your beliefs and you
change your life.
