Sit, listen to the wind, birds and trees. Allow the beauty and chaos that is nature to enter and propel you through this time we call life. Breath in the smells of an open fire place and a camp fire. Know the difference that they have on you and your surroundings. Give with an open heart and mind. Know that there are richer and poorer. But never measure those two thoughts by the amount of money one has. For richness is how you live and give of yourself, not what you have.
There is a knack to being in the right place at the right time in business. One of the ways you can increase your chances of having life unfold the way you would like it to is to repeat affirmations to yourself so that you can expand your mind’s way of thinking about the opportunity at hand at a sub-conscious level. Some of my favourite affirmations were taught to me by Stuart Wilde, and they are ‘I am always in the right place at the right time’. ‘All my needs are constantly met’. ‘I am blessed with unlimited abundance in love, money, friendships, opportunity and talent’. ‘It is safe to trust the process of life,’ ‘I am guided and protected’. And last but not least ‘Opportunity finds me’.
Once you begin saying these or similar affirmations to yourself, and you have gathered a bit of experience behind you, you will find that you begin to get into ‘the Zone’ in business. That’s when things will begin to fall into place for you in all that you do. Remember to train yourself to believe that you don’t have to be constantly involved in activity for your business to succeed. If you can make each action you take become effective, then you won’t need to do so much work in order to achieve the same result. People who are constantly running around trying to get everything done are taking on too much or not doing things effectively. The truly successful people make running a business look easy – because it doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s only when your belief system says that massive amounts of activity are needed for you to grant yourself the right to make lots of money that running a business becomes difficult. If you choose the right product or service, you don’t really have to work very much at all in order to make money. Train yourself out of thinking that success has to be difficult, because it doesn’t. Work with the subconscious mind by repeating affirmations in order to cancel out some of your old ways of thinking, and watch as the dollars come to you easily and effortlessly.
As Stuart Wilde says, In Bad Times The Rich Usually Get Richer. There are reasons for this. Quite a few. Firstly, the rich do not acquire things, they acquire investments. People associate the wealthy with lavish things like cars, artwork, and large houses. What most people don’t see however is that very few of those things are depreciating assets. The house, the art, and many times the cars are all assets that are going to increase in value over time. The rich know that while it’s nice to look at a great painting, the underlying value appreciation of that painting makes it twice as nice. Continue reading →
