I’m a firm believer that we are here to create our own destinies. Our lives are exactly as we have made them – for good or bad.
I’m fairly certain that most people involved in MAXpersuasion are either living the good life or are on the path to the good life because expanding our universes is truly one of the best ways to get exactly what we want out of life.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about affluence. From the principles of affluence, to the thoughts, to action, to the realization.
Installing an affluent mindset and thought processes will help you to realize your dreams. I’m talking here about the strategies of the world’s wealthiest.
Want to know why Bill Gates is wealthier than you? I’ll tell you…
It’s really more than a mindset. I’m talking about foundational principles, wealth strategies. It’s about programming ourselves and teaching ourselves at the level of our other-than-conscious mind.
At the core of who you are, you have a really good idea of who you are and what you want. Maybe you’ve gained this insight as a result of working through your universes, and understanding your own criteria and your own core values in life. These all provide you the drive that it takes to succeed.
My dad taught me when I was young that if I loved what I do, I would never work a day in my life.
This is sage advice that has been passed on from father to son, from mother to daughter, from generation to generation, probably since the dawn of time. And I can tell you that I’ve certainly benefited by that.
I know that if we were to go around and follow some of the wealthiest in the world, we might feel like they are literally working from dawn to dusk, maybe even much more. It might even be exhausting to follow them around and try to keep up.
Why? Because their dreams are not our dreams.
If they had to follow you around for a day – and you were lit on fire in terms of manifesting your universes, experiencing your criteria and values for wealth generation and success in your life – I’ll tell you, they would probably feel tired too.
What fuels this fire is the fuel of really understanding who you are and what you want. And the clearer the image, the clearer your ability, the clearer and stronger this fire will be burning within you.
If we can get our mind into the mindset of a millionaire or billionaire, then that’s where we’re headed. You can create those same results.
There was a saying in my early training in neuro linguistic programming that said, “If it’s possible in the world, it’s possible for me. It’s only a matter of how.”
And of course there was always the smart aleck in the room that had to challenge the trainer and say, “Are you telling me that a paraplegic has the same ability as an Olympic athlete?” No, that’s not what’s being said here.
What’s being said is that if it’s possible for other humans of roughly the same capability that you have, it’s possible for you. Meaning, there’s nothing inherently better about Bill Gates than you, yet I guarantee he’s wealthier than you or me, at least today.
Why is he wealthier? Could it be that he was just lucky? Well, yeah. It sure could. Could it be that he was at the right place at the right time? Yeah.
But it’s not enough just to be in the right place at the right time. I love saying, “I’m a great believer in luck. And I find the harder I work, the more of it I have.”
Where inspiration and perspiration meet, that’s where magic happens.
However, you can’t have one side without the other. It’s not enough to have the inspiration (the thoughts) without the perspiration (the work, the action, the doing).
It’s not enough to just do. That isn’t going to cut it either, not without the inspiration, the thought, behind it. We have to couple these things. That’s when we find real success and rewards in our lives.
Until Next Time,
