how some people have a lot of money and just keep making more and more
money - while some people struggle to make ends meet - even though they
keep doing everything they can to make more money? Or why some people
always have the money to buy what they want while others continue to
pile up their debts even though they have a decent job? Im going
to explain why this happens and how you can become one of those people
who is always living life with a positive cash flow.
years - through research, interviews and teaching my Creating Power
System Ive learned that people who have a great deal of wealth
and people who maintain a positive cash flow have developed a positive
wealth consciousness. In short - they always have money because they
always believe they will have money. As a result they continuously attract
money and moneymaking opportunities - while at the same time they find
ways to save money and make their money work for them. Now it wasnt
always this way. Not all of them had money to start with - in fact most
people earned their money and continued to find ways to make more money.
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. Im not going to bore you
with his entire life story. But my point is he didnt 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.
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 didnt 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
What Is A Positive Wealth Consciousness?
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, Im 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 - lets 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.
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 youre in debt and dont 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 its difficult to make money -
I dont know what to do to make more money - Im in debt and
dont know how to get out. For every problem there is a solution
- otherwise we wouldnt 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
youll get answers. The money wont fall from the sky but
you will be guided to it.
Do You Train Your Mind?
focus on what you want. Lets say you want to find a job - you
start telling yourself: I know what to do to find a job. Im
doing the right things to find a job. Ive got the right job.
Then start thinking of all the possible things you can do to get a job.
I know you may say: Ive done all that - and still have nothing.
The only reason you dont have anything is because youre
not looking in the right place. Youre 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.
applies if youre trying to make more money. You may be bent on
making money a certain way - in the process youre 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 didnt 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.
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 didnt 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. Thats 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.
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. About the used car dealership
he said: At the time - it just didnt feel right. I went
through the books, knew it would be successful - but I just didnt
see myself doing that. You have to go with what fits for you -
just because its a good opportunity - doesnt mean its
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. Heres 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 youve had enough. Keep adding
to that list over the course of the day. Then when you feel youve
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 its difficult to make more money - youll
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 doesnt 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 thoughts and you change your beliefs.
Change your beliefs and you change your life.
