50 Affirmations to Develop Abundance

Published by under Creating Success

Affirmations are great tools that can help you overcome fear, build your confidence, develop an abundance mind-set and more.  The problem is that many people aren’t sure exactly how to write effective affirmations.

Look to this Day

Published by under Creating Success

The following is a verse that I have carried with me and lived by for 40 years. 

Look to this day
For it is Life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of its existence.

The Bliss of Growth,
The Splendor of Action,
The Glory of Power.

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived
Makes yesterday a dream of happiness
And tomorrow a vision of hope

Look well therefore,
To this day.

Creating the Life YOU Deserve Begins Today!

Published by under Creating Success

Do you believe you’re creating the life you deserve? Is your belief strong enough that you REALLY believe you not only deserve it but that it’s possible?

Most of us develop “limiting beliefs” as we grow up beginning at a very early age. Think how many times as a child or even as an adult, someone has told you “Oh, you can’t do that!” or “that’s a crazy idea. It will never work.” I know it’s something I’ve experienced over and over again.  Remember a week ago Susan Boyle got on stage to sing – the judges didn’t actually say anything but they certainly looked at her askance. It was easy to read their faces. But she had the belief in herself that said “I Believe In ME!”

Have you thought – when I just get the education or knowledge, I’ll be able to do it. So we spend our time learning or “getting ready”.  Obviously, knowledge is important but if it becomes a limiting belief, it will keep us from moving forward. Many times the best way to gain knowledge, is to begin working toward our goal at the same time we’re going through training in whatever form that takes.

Another “limiting belief” is that you’ve tried and tried and continue to fail.  History has legions of people who failed and quit. It also has legions of people who didn’t perceive those times as failures but rather learning experiences. Most of us have heard the stories about Thomas Edison and his 10,000 attempts to invent a light bulb or Colonel Sanders 1000 attempts to find someone who would believe in his chicken recipe or Steven Spielberg’s 20 years of looking for a way to produce “Shindler’s List”. These people stayed focused on their goals.

There is a great story about Roger Banister and John Landry. Everyone said that the human  body wasn’t capable of running the 4 minute mile – it just wasn’t physically possible. So on the day of the race between these 2 men, there was much anticipation. During most of the race Landry was well ahead of Banister. Going into the last turn, Landry looked back over his left shoulder and didn’t see Banister. In the meantime Banister was passing Landry on the right and handily won the race – in under 4 minutes.  Landry took his eye off his goal (the finish line) and that gave Banister the edge. Interestingly, they raced many times after that day and Landry won everytime. You must keep focused on your goal.

All of these people had enormous obstacles to overcome, probably the biggest being past negative experiences. But they took control of their life. When we have a goal that we truly believe in, we must take control of our emotions, our feelings, our actions and our limiting beliefs and create the life we deserve

Easy to say. Hard to do? Well, limiting beliefs manifest themselves in negative self-talk. There are many things we can do to change negative self-talk.  There has been much written about the power of positive thinking with thousands of examples of how people affected their life mentally and physically through changing their beliefs. While ridding yourself of some of your  limiting beliefs can take some time, the methods are fairly simple. For the next 21 days do some or all of the following:

  1. Start your day with a Power Shower –  while you’re showering review your schedule for the day and visualize how great a presentation you’ll do; how that potential client will become say yes; how you’ll win that contract; how you’ll impress your boss with your creative idea.  Shout it out – all your successes for the day.
  2. Read positive or motivation books – there’s thousands to choose from. Just open one up anywhere and read for 30 minutes every morning.
  3. Rewrite your goals daily.
  4. Put a motivational CD in your car so you’ll hear positive messages as you go through your day.
  5. Spend 5 minutes twice a day visualizing yourself achieving your goal – do one of these right before going to sleep and your subconscious will continue working on it while you sleep.

Remember that success is a journey – not a destination.  Continue to study while you’re working toward your goal, not instead of. If you’re stuck and can’t seem to get to where you want to be, stand on your head (figuratively) and look at the situation from a different angle but NEVER TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE GOAL.

Welcome to A Wealth of Possibilities for Possibilities of Wealth!

Published by under Creating Success

Yes there are a wealth of possibilities for possibilities of wealth. Together we can explore a few of the infinite possibilities.

Certainly the internet has created possibilities that weren’t even thought of 10 or 20 years ago. We have the opportunity to latch on to one and create something unique. So stay tuned as we begin our exploration together.
So what is wealth?
  • affluence
  • prosperity
  • success
  • treasure, valuables
  • riches, substance, wherewithal
Wealth is simply abundance. I’m sure there are hundreds of ways that people think of wealth. But to me it is abundance in all areas of my life.
Thomas Troward in The Hidden Power wrote “Where we are drawing from the infinite we need never be afraid of taking more than our share.”  In other words there is an infinite abundance of things both material and mental.
Stop and think about different areas of your life. Do you approach them in the Spirit of Opulence? Do you think that there  are only so many new customers or business builders; there’s only so much money; there’s only so  many new ideas for businesses or inventions?
If you are approaching life with those limitations, that is what you will experience.  Troward puts it, “Your results are the outward expression of your inner belief system.” 
So if you don’t like how things are going, examine the different areas of your life: Relationships, Physical Health, Finances, Community. How are you limiting your wealth (success) in these areas?
