Thoughts Become Reality!

That is one of the fundamental laws of the universe. If we look at everything all around us, all of them started off first as a thought. From a non-physical point of view, it could then be concluded that our thoughts about things and events shape our reality of happiness, sadness, peace, joy… perhaps even love. So then if thoughts become reality, what happens when chronic thoughts are repeated over and over again? What happens to the reality of that person? Of course if the thoughts are positive, they produce positive results but what if they are negative?

For discussion purpose, lets talk about chronic thoughts of “Wanting”. Many times I hear people pray and all they pray about are things like: “God, please give me…….”, “I don’t want ……… Please take this burden off me.” Prayers that springs from thoughts of wanting something, which if we look deeper, springs from thoughts of lack, limitation and separation from the source. With thoughts shaping reality, wouldn’t such thoughts just perpetuate the reality of wanting, yearning and longing? The reality of that person then becoming, “I’ve been asking and praying but I still don’t get it.” Why me? Poor me!

If what a person is seeking for is to achieve or have something, shouldn’t the thoughts then be thoughts of gratitude? Prayers that say: “Thank you for ………..” and “I’m grateful for ………..” kinds of prayers that is open to receiving instead of prayers and thoughts that keep producing the reality of wanting. The question that comes to mind here then is “Could it be that all that we are asking for has already been given to us but we are not yet open to receiving it?

So how to make the shift then? In my humble opinion, Perception is the key word here. If one perceives that one has no control aver the things that happen to them, then that becomes their reality. If one perceives that one could take responsibility of the things that are happening in one’s life and look at it as he/she has made conscious choices that led to this reality. Then perhaps…… a positive shift could happen, from victim-hood to victor-hood.

Ultimately, it surfaces one’s believe of a Source of Providence or a Source of Lack and Limitation. I know I’m opening a can of worms here with this discussion. However, let’s keep the discussion going so that we all can learn…… with an open mind of course. Be aware of your chronic thoughts my friend.

Many of us know about Goal Setting and how to go about doing it. There is the usual writing it down as though you have already achieved it, putting a date to it and even reading and re-reading it to feed your mind.

However, I’ve noticed that many still don’t get to their goals because of Procrastination. It is often easy to say “I’ll do it tomorrow” and go about our daily comfortable routine. I’ve also seen that some people come up with excuses like: “Geez. That was a busy day and I did a lot of THINGS.” However, when put under scrutiny, many of those “busy things” aren’t really necessary or progressive. Some would even justify that those “busy things” were necessary. Here’s what I saw on the Oprah show about The Secret. Lisa Nichols said something along the lines of “When you are ready and asking for a positive change, you gotta let go of the old stuff to receive the new!”

In the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey mentions that it is the things that are Important but Not Urgent that need to be done first.

Therefore, to overcome procrastination, I use a very simple question daily that gives me a kick-in-the-butt. It has worked for me and I hope it’ll work for you too. Done with a positive tone, it motivates a person to do what is really necessary.

The question is “Is what I’m doing now going to get me one step closer to my ___________?” In my case, I’m into internet marketing and my goal is to make my first million dollars by Dec 2008. My question then is “Is what I’m doing going to get me closer to my million dollars?” When the answer is No, I still have a choice but it sure makes me feel uneasy not doing the necessary. Hope this helps.

If you’ve got other methods to overcome procrastination, please do share it. Comments are welcomed.

Got this from T Harv Eker’s newsletter today and thought I would like to share with you.

Many of us who are into attracting wealth sometimes forget this too. That while we go about our day to day, doing our best to become financially independent, we focus too much on “Our efforts to generate our returns” rather than “Asking and then receiving”. Not to sound too religious about asking, there is a force in the universe that gets moving when we ask.

The next step (in my opinion) after asking, is to be open to receiving. Receive well my friend.

Wealth File #10:

Rich people are excellent receivers.
Poor people are poor receivers.

If I had to nail down the number one reason most people do not reach their financial potential, it would be this: most people are poor ‘receivers’. They may or may not be good at giving, but they are definitely bad at receiving. And because they are bad at receiving, they don’t receive!

The main reason people are challenged by receiving is that they feel unworthy or undeserving. This syndrome runs rampant through our society. I would guess that over 90 percent of individuals have feelings of not being good.

The reality is, if you think you’re worthy, you are. If you think you’re not worthy, you’re not. Either way, you will live into your story!

To your success.

I got the following from Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich. This message was taken off the Power Talk audio series by Anthony Robbins.

Somehow, in the midst of making money and attracting wealth, maybe we should also be thinking of how we can increase our capacity of accumulating wealth. Maybe this might sound a little deep but bear with me here. If a person hasn’t learnt to BE wealthy, even if he / she earns or makes a lot of money (a good example here would be lottery winners), it would still be spent and the person goes back to the original ‘broke’ self. This is what T Harv Eker in his book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind calls the financial thermostat.

So, while we are making money, perhaps it would be useful to also raise our financial thermostat, to be able to increase our capacity to hold wealth. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to present to you the 12 things that constitutes real riches.

  1. A positive mental attitude
  2. Sound physical health
  3. Harmony in human relationships
  4. Freedom from fear
  5. The hope of future achievement
  6. The capacity for applied faith
  7. Willingness to share one’s blessings with others
  8. To be engaged in the labour of love
  9. An open mind towards all subjects and all people
  10. Complete self discipline
  11. Wisdom in which to understand people
  12. Financial security

Notice that the positive mental attitude and the rest comes first and money being the last on the list. Guess money as an energy gets attracted to us when all-of-the-above is achieved. 😉

Have Fun Y’all!
