Here’s an interesting way to view how we manifest things in the world. Imagine that the universe, which is a different way of stating “higher power”, is akin to a big mail-order department. It’s constantly responding to the mental and emotional energy that you put out to it – the majority of the time.
The Law of Attraction
This means that the stronger and more persistent the energy coming from you is, the more likely it is to become a reality. You “order” what you get by sending energetic messages out to the universe based on your prevailing beliefs. I call this the ‘Law of Attraction!’ Again, based on the Law of Attraction, the universe will do its best to support you based on the message or order that you send to it.
But if you’ve mixed messages in your file, the universe can’t comprehend what you want. One moment the universe hears that you wish to be wealthy, so it starts sending you chances for wealth. But then it hears you state, “Wealthy individuals are greedy”, so the universe starts to support you in not having much cash.
The universe is completely impartial to what you say you want versus the subliminal messages it picks up from you. It simply responds to the loudest and most dominant message it receives from you. The first reason most individuals don’t get what they want is that they don’t really know what they want. Wealthy individuals are totally clear that they want wealth.
They’re unwavering in their desire. They are totally dedicated to creating wealth. As long as it’s legal, ethical, and moral, they’ll do whatever it takes to have wealth. Rich individuals don’t send mixed messages to the universe. Poor individuals do.
Poor individuals have plenty of great reasons as to why getting and actually being wealthy may be an issue. Therefore, they’re not 100 percent certain they truly want to be rich. Their message to the universe is confusing. Their message to other people is confusing.
And why does all of this confusion occur? Because their message to themselves is confusing. I know it may be difficult to believe, but you always get what you want — what you subconsciously want, not what you state you want.
You may emphatically deny this and respond, “That’s crazy! Why would I wish to struggle?” And my question for you is precisely the same: “I don’t know. Why would you wish to struggle?” Put bluntly, if you’re not accomplishing the wealth you state you want, there’s a good chance it’s because, first, you subconsciously don’t truly want wealth, or second, you’re not willing to do what it takes to produce it.
Let’s explore this further… There are really 3 levels of so-called wanting. The first level is “I want to be rich.” That’s a different way of stating, “I’ll take it if it falls in my lap.” Wanting alone is worthless. Have you noticed that wanting doesn’t necessarily lead to “having”?
Note likewise that wanting without having leads to more wanting. Wanting becomes habitual and leads only to itself, producing a perfect circle that goes precisely nowhere. Wealth doesn’t come from merely wanting it. How do you know this is true? With a simple reality check – millions of people worldwide would love to be wealthy, but the reality is that relatively few are.
The second level of wanting is “I choose to be rich.” This involves deciding to become wealthy. Choosing is a much stronger energy and goes hand in hand with being responsible for producing your reality. Choosing is better but not best.
The third level of wanting is “I will be rich.” This implies holding absolutely nothing back; giving a hundred percent of everything you’ve got to accomplishing wealth. It implies being willing to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. This is the warrior’s way. No excuses, no ifs, no buts, no maybes—and failure isn’t a choice.
The warrior’s way is easy: “I’ll be rich or I’ll die trying”. “I will be rich.” Try stating that to yourself…. What comes up for you? For some, it feels empowering. For other people, it feels intimidating. Most individuals would never really commit to being rich.
If you asked them, “Would you bet your life that in the next 10 years you’ll be wealthy?” most would say, “No way!” That’s the difference between rich individuals and poor individuals. It’s precisely because individuals won’t really dedicate to being wealthy that they’re not rich and most likely never will be.
Some may say, what are you talking about? I work my butt off, I’m trying very hard. Naturally I’m devoted to being rich.” And I’d reply, “That you’re trying means little. Most individuals I know who are not financially successful have limits
on how much they’re willing to do, how much they’re willing to risk, and how much they’re willing to sacrifice.
Although they believe they’re willing to do whatever it takes, on deeper questioning I always find they’ve plenty of conditions around what they’re willing to do and not do to succeed! I hate to have to be the one to tell you this, but getting wealthy isn’t a stroll in the park, and anybody who tells you it is either knows a heck of a lot more than me or is a bit out of integrity.
Wealth Begins With You
In my experience, getting wealthy takes focus, courage, knowledge, skill, a hundred percent of your effort, a never-give-up attitude, and naturally a rich mentality. You likewise have to trust in your heart of hearts that you may produce wealth and that you utterly deserve it.
Again, what this means is that, if you’re not fully, totally, and truly dedicated to producing wealth, chances are you won’t. Are you willing to work 16 hours a day? Rich individuals are. Are you willing to work 7 days a week and give up most of your weekends?
Rich individuals are. Are you willing to sacrifice seeing your family, your friends, and give up your recreations and hobbies? Wealthy people are. For a time, hopefully a short time but mostly a long time, wealthy people are ready and willing to do what poor people aren’t. Are you?
Perhaps you’ll be lucky and you won’t have to work long or hard or sacrifice anything. You may wish for that, but I certainly wouldn’t count on it. Again, wealthy individuals are committed enough to do whatever it takes. Period. It’s intriguing to note, however, that once you do dedicate, the universe will bend over backward to support you.
The universe will assist you, guide you, support you, and even produce miracles for you. But first, you have to commit!
Your Declaration Of Wealth
Make this commitment statement to yourself: Place your hand on your heart and state… “I dedicate to being wealthy.” Then, touch your head and say… “I’ve a millionaire mind!”
1. Write a short paragraph on precisely why being wealthy is important to you. Be as specific as you can.
2. Meet with an friend or family member who’s willing to support you and help you be accountable. Tell them you are 100% committed to becoming a millionaire.
Put your hand on your heart, look them in the eye, and repeat: “I, ____________ [your name], do hereby dedicate to becoming a millionaire or more by ________ [date].”
Tell your partner to state, “I believe in you.” Then you say, “Thanks”.
Check in as to how you feel before your allegiance and how you feel after it. If you feel a sense of freedom, you’re on your way. If you feel a hint of concern, you’re on your way. If you didn’t bother doing it, you’re still in “not being willing to do
whatever it takes” mode or “I don’t have to do any of this weird stuff” mode.
Either way, let me remind you, your way has gotten you right where you are today. To end up somewhere different, you are going to need to think and behave in different ways.
