Tip#169: Your Thoughts Are Worth Millions - Millions
How do you know you are thinking negatively if you don't stop to think about what you are thinking about? It's a big paradox because you may not even realize that you've learned to think a certain way growing up that is secretly sabotaging your dreams and goals today.
The Millionaire Mind Intensive
Last weekend I gave myself one of the greatest gifts I could and attended the Millionaire Mind Intensive in Toronto. This was a 3 day intense personal development program that instantly changed my life. It was like boot camp for dealing with your personal blocks once and for all.
The Millionaire Mind title can be deceiving because your paradigm about the word millionaire could limit you to thinking it's just about making a lot of money. It was so much more than that. The program was abundantly educational, cathartic, therapeutic and deeply spiritual. And ultimately it does feed your financial intelligence and self-worth.
Within 3 days I was able to identify sub-conscious issues about money and clear much of that old programming out. Though it is important to know that years worth of personal development had prepared me for this highly active weekend. The program also helped initiate the process of re-programming my mind with positive thinking and goal setting. The law of attraction was a big part of this process as well.
T. Harv Eker is the creator of this program and author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. The book was given to me as a gift about 3 years and since then accepted the paradox that something in my childhood had indeed created a block about my financial successes.
The movie Millions takes place in the UK and explores what happens when a 7 year old named Damian and his 9 year old brother finds a bag full of money. You see 2 different mindsets at play with Damian wanting to help others with the money and his older brother wanting to invest it. With magical visitations and teachings of patron saints throughout history Damian learns the powerful, altruistic value of money.
Damian knows the gift of ruling money instead of money ruling him. With that kind of positive programming you know he will grow up to have a strong sense of self-worth and self-esteem. The roots of his positive thinking began to grow as a child.
Courage and Humility
It takes incredible courage and humility to look back into your past and identify when your old negative programming began. As taught in the Millionaire Mind Intensive, your roots determine your fruits. In other words, in order to change the fruits of your tree you must change your roots of your thinking and beliefs.
The challenge is that you may have become so comfortable with your way of thinking that it's hard to believe anything else. It's like believing all your life that the colour RED is RED when in fact it is the colour GREEN. Your belief system will be turned upside down and that would be the greatest step forward for you.
If you are willing to let go of all you think you know is true then you would have faced your greatest foe. And that foe was you.
So if you continually find yourself stuck in your life, career or relationships be open to the fact that you have been creating your situations all along. Believe you are in control of your life and your thinking and a new world of success will break open for you.
