Prosperity, luxury, fortune, the good life all lead to obtaining financial independence. The meaning of financial independence can differ from person to person. One individual might want to have all of their bills paid and another will consider it being a millionaire. You may even change your own definition as you progress financially. How ever you define this desire, you certainly should not suppress it. If your financial situation is not where you want it to be do not accept things as they are. You have an innate power to improve your financial situation to something far better through prosperous thought and and action.
Dare to think of the possibility of prosperity in your life even if it does not seem possible at this point. The most successful people share a common trait, they THINK BIG. Do not limit yourself or your ideas. Create and hold on to your image of great success, prosperity and financial independence. For example, after having been in business for only a short while, and just starting to turn a profit, I realized that I did not have enough time to follow through on all of the opportunities that life was presenting me. Instead of letting them go, I hired an Associate. I did this even though a friend and a family member laughed at my suggestion saying I was to new in business to do this. My decision turned out to be one of best things I could have done.
Most people will be able to provide you with a number of reasons why they can not succeed. Gaining financial independence will require you to abandon negative behaviors and attitudes. Envision yourself as free from people, places and things that you do not want, need or that do not support your growth. Begin immediately to imagine yourself as prosperous now. It is easier for the mind and universe to produce results that are expected in the present.
Change your attitude towards your money by mentally increasing your supply, times 10. Here is a powerful and simple technique, that I found in an old book by Catherine Ponder, that will increase your money. Take out your wallet. Suppose you have $10. Look at it and declare, “I give thanks that this $10 is but a symbol of the inexhaustible substance of the universe. I give thanks that 10 times this much or $100 is now on its way to me and quickly manifests in perfect ways.” This will get you to think of how much you have and how much is coming versus ‘I don’t have enough.” The mind responds quickly to definite figures.
5 STEPS TO ACQUIRE PERSONAL PROSPERITY
Here are 5 steps to assist you with attaining financial independence. Will you see over night success? No, but with persistence and acceptance you will begin to see positive results over time. How much time will be determined by how much effort you put into the process. The sooner you begin to change your belief patterns the sooner the results.
Now that you have decided to become financially independent make a mental picture of the highest amount you wish to experience. Envision the amount of income you wish to have and how you will live when you achieve that level. Create as detailed an image as possible. The more you think about it the more detailed it will become. Imagine your home, your car, clothes you wear, vacations you take and so on.
Get quite and meditate on the financial independence you want to obtain. Ask if there is any reason you should not obtain this life style. Be observant of any thoughts that surface as these are your obstacles that will need to be removed. After your meditation, negative thoughts that surfaced can be dealt with by using affirmations and cutting the cord to these thoughts. You will want to repeat this step until no more negative thoughts emerge.
Do not share your inner plans with others as not everyone will want to see you prosper. People will verbally contribute any number of reasons why you will not succeed. Also, any negative thoughts that others have can create vibrations that could dissipate your inner work. Remember other people can not live your life for you.
Do not become anxious, or upset if you do not see immediate results. Do not try to force or hurry your mental image into manifestation. If you had a garden and planted seeds one day you would not expect to see plants the next day. Results take time. Anxious, excited or emotional, hurried or forced states produce results that are seldom satisfactory.
Know that your dreams of financial independence have already become true on the mental plane, by the time you develop a vision for them. Therefore, your desires are as much yours now as it will be when it becomes visible. It will be up to you to bring it into being. Declare, “Meet this demand in it’s perfect way. It is mine now and manifests soon in satisfying ways.” Add to this “This or something better now manifests.” Remember that everything you see or that has ever happened was a thought first.
