you feel rich? ... no matter your wealth?
If you see yourself as poor you stay there.
Veronica Lim of Millionaire Thinking looks at how your feelings
dictate your results
You Can't Get Rich by Feeling Poor! by Veronica
There you are – the paradox.
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. The worse it gets, the
worse it gets. The better it gets, the better it gets. Those who
don’t need it appear to have it, and those who appear most in need
are those who lack it!
Life is unfair! Or is it?
The truth is that life is hugely fair. It gives you exactly what
you ask for. Now, that’s the tough bit for many people. We may consciously
ask for what we want, but then we (often unconsciously) worry about
whether or not it will show up. This is tantamount to asking for
it not to show up.
How often have you said, “I’d like that . . . but I can’t afford
it”? How often have you bought something you wanted and felt guilty
about it at the same time? How often have you come across someone
who has a house or car you’d like, and then thought, “It’s all right
for some” and felt envious or annoyed? How often have you thought,
“How come they can achieve that and I can’t?” And how often have
you thought, “I need and I want more money” whilst feeling poor?
Do you notice how there are conflicting messages here? You’re saying
one thing but feeling another.
Now, think about something which you feel sure about. Something
which is well within your comfort zone. How differently does that
feel? How much do you even think about the subject at hand? I’d
say that you don’t even think about it, other than to conceive the
idea in the first place. You just take it for granted that what
you want to happen will happen. You just know it, and it feels good.
That’s where we want to be, as much of the time as possible. That’s
when both your thinking and your feeling are in alignment.
The toughest time to feel rich is when you are feeling broke.
The toughest time to relax is when you are feeling under pressure.
The toughest time to take time out is when you’re really busy. The
toughest time to stay on a diet is when you’re feeling fat. The
toughest time to stay focused on your vision and what you want is
when your current reality is far removed from that, and you’re focusing
on your current reality!
This is one of the biggest challenges that all of us face. Yet
the irony is that our most inspired ideas and actions happen when
we are relaxed, feeling good and focusing on what we want; not what
we don’t want.
So, how can you start to feel rich, here and now? Change your focus.
Remember that Crisis = Danger + Opportunity. The Chinese word
for Crisis is made up of those two other words. You notice the danger,
and you feel less than good inside. Then you change your focus and
look for the opportunity. You’ll feel lighter and you’ll be better
able to access your creativity.
Keep in mind too that at the end of the day, it’s not just about
the money. It’s about health and family and relationships and everything
else besides. Financial success is not the only measure of your
Money cannot buy you peace of mind, or love, or happiness, or a
feeling of success and all those other intangibles. All of these
are available to you in an instant, regardless of the current state
of your bank account. Success does not come from having or making
money; having or making money comes from success. So if you just
happen to be thinking that having more money will bring you those
intangibles, then, what is it that is stopping you from having those
intangibles right now?
