Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Fortune

Did you know that…
The Universe desires you to have everything you want to have.
Nature is friendly to your plans.
Everything is naturally for you.
Make up your mind that this is true.
Ah, and there’s the trick…. making up your mind that this is true!
Change Your Beliefs for Success!
Often, what we want to believe, and what we really believe are two different things… and which one do you think will win out? That’s right- what we deep down, really believe, those beliefs that are lodged in our subconscious mind.
What are the beliefs that keep surfacing, that you are trying to change? “Positive thinking” and affirmations are great, but too often, they only penetrate the surface.
What did you learn about money when you were growing up? That it’s hard to come by? That you need to work long and hard for it? Or maybe, that it’s the root of all evil? That rich people are selfish snobs? Even though you may really need and want money, what are your feelings when you see people that have it? Does it seem totally outside your reality?
You can go through life, consciously trying to change, trying to stay on top of every thought, action and word…. exhausting and self defeating, isn’t it?
So, how do you know what subconscious beliefs might be holding you back?
One simple way to find out is to start writing statements like these:
“I deserve success and happiness.”
“Success comes easily.”
“I find it easy to make money.”
“I encounter opportunities wherever I go.”
“I know what I want in life.”
“I am ready to face any challenges.”
“I believe in my ability to create success.”
Take a look at what you wrote, and as you read each statement out loud, pay attention to how you feel inside.
If any statement conflicts with one of your external beliefs, you will feel a twinge of guilt or fear, a feeling as if you were lying to yourself. The feeling may be subtle, but if you pay close enough attention, you will sense it.
Circle any statement that doesn’t resonate with you. Those are the beliefs you need to work on if you want to make any progress. You can not change anything, unless you know what it is, and acknowledge it.
And how do you change existing beliefs? You let them go, and replace them with more empowering beliefs.
This is why this exercise is so helpful. It will help you bring your old subconscious beliefs into awareness. Now it’s time to acknowledge them, let them go, and replace them with more positive and forward moving beliefs.
Did you know, that students who score well on tests are the ones who are most relaxed? That geniuses put very little effort into thought, that ideas just seem to come to them? High performance athletes don’t think they do. Of course, they have studied, and trained, but when the time comes, they perform on a level above thought. So the point is…. relax, stop thinking, stop trying, and study, train, and DO!
