And if you don’t believe me, ask Polly Letofsky who walked around the world. Her book, 3 MPH, is a great read. Polly will agree her journey started with her first steps in Vail, CO, sent off with an amazing tribute from her mother.
And yesterday, we took a first step together. You stepped up to read my blog and may I say thank you!
I am enjoying Secrets of the Millionaire Mind…I hope you are reading along with me.
Today we start revising our money blueprint.
There are three influences on your success blueprint/subconscious conditioning: Verbal Programming or what you’ve heard all your life. Modeling or what you’ve seen all your life. And finally, Specific Incidents burned into your subconscious. These influences are at the root of your success or lack of success.
Seems like I really use 4 alot. Secrets of the Marriage Mouse ~ Find Your Forever Love in 4 Proven Steps…and now I share there are 4 key elements to change any bad programming:
- Awareness- Recognize there’s a problem(s).
- Understanding- Once identified, you’ll quickly recognize the problem(s) doesn’t come from within you but from outside you. We weren’t born with bad programming, it is learned. This is important…we weren’t born with bad programming! Say that to yourself several times every day until you believe it in your core.
- Disassociation- Once you understand the origin of the problem came from an external source; you can disassociate yourself and change. You don’t have to “own” bad programming for the rest of your life.
- Reconditioning- A conscious effort to create your own truths about yourself, money and your ability to grow your wealth. Consciously through affirmations (and actions) and practice which over time creates a new program subconsciously. One you created and are proud to own.
What did you hear as a child about money, wealth, rich people…? Verbal Programming (Parents, relatives, teachers talking gave you your verbal programming)
Now let’s look at Modeling (pardon the pun). What did you see as a child? How did your parents or significant role models handle money and wealth? Were they spenders or savers, investors or non-investors, risk takers or conservative?
Were they generous or tight-fisted? Was money an issue? Was obtaining money easy or was it a struggle. We’ve all heard the saying “monkey see, monkey do.” Guess what, often times, it’s true.
If your motivation for acquiring money or success comes from a non-supportive root such as fear, anger, or the need to “prove” yourself, your money will never bring you happiness.
The third primary way in which we are influenced is by Specific Incidents. What did you personally experience while you were young that may have been traumatic or emotional? Remember the wealth principle from Day 1 – When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.
Have you ever said to yourself, “Self, why am I not having the success I should have in my business?”
Have you ever not made a call you knew you should make (or you promised yourself you would make); or not asked for a buying decision after spending your valuable time and money making a sales call?
Have you ever sat in your chair, frozen with analysis paralysis?
Have you ever started something but did not finish it?
The answer is a resounding YES, YES, YES!!! We’re all guilty and there is a reason. It could be specifically different for each of us but it always can be traced back to our subconscious conditioning.
Once again, your subconscious conditioning determines your thinking. Your thinking determines your decisions which determine your actions, which eventually determine your outcomes.
Stay tuned…more tomorrow.
And so life goes…on and on
