In my last post, where I discussed our beliefs about money and wealth, I stated that people actually believe they create money/wealth with what they do and that this belief is complete nonsense. You do not create money/wealth with what you do. You are a creative being. Like everything else in life, you create with your thoughts and your emotions.
That being said, if you want to have more money/wealth in your life, the ONLY way to make that happen is to flush out and eliminate your negative/limiting beliefs about money. So obviously, the first step is to identify those negative/limiting beliefs. That is the hard part because we take most of those beliefs for granted. Thoughts like: money is the root of all evil; most rich people probably did something bad or dishonest to get their money; getting rich takes a lot of work and struggle; having a lot of money is a big responsibility; striving for wealth won’t allow time for much else in life; if I get rich, everyone will want something from me; money isn’t really that important, especially if you’re already happy; and you can’t get rich doing exactly what you love.
It’s going to be up to you to flush those out. If we can help, let us know. In any event, once you create your list, one effective approach to eliminating those beliefs is to create an ideal opposite statement for each belief. For example, let’s say one of your beliefs is “other people’s opinions of me are important.” (You might not think that’s limiting but I assure you it is.) The ideal opposite might be something like: “What other people think of me is none of my business because I know that I am a worthwhile and valuable person.”
With that ideal opposite statement, sit in a chair, cross your ankles, left over right or right over left, whichever feels most comfortable, and do the same with your wrists and clasp your hands together. One at a time, for as much time as you have, repeat your ideal opposite statement to yourself, over and over again, until there are no resisting thoughts, feelings or emotions. As you do this, breathe in deeply. Then, leave a few seconds of silence to allow for a response from your inner mind. Notice the resistance, if any, but do not engage with it. Repeat until your mind is free of resistance. This should take no longer than 5 minutes per statement. Be thorough and persistent until every one of your negative beliefs has been neutralized.
You might take just one negative thought, do this in the morning, and then keep repeating the ideal opposite thought to yourself all through the day as the feeling of the opposite thought feels better and better. If you’re really diligent about this, you should be able to neutralize all of those limiting beliefs and watch the amount of money and wealth flowing into your life increase and increase.

If you are a business owner, company president or chief executive located anywhere in the US who is serious about creating extraordinary business success, there are some things you must understand. For example, how you approach your day is far more important than what you do on the job.
