As the New Year comes around, it's time for you to take a look at your beliefs. I had a great call with one of my mentors (Rich German) yesterday and as he went through the class I realized that so much of what has been holding me back has been my fears - or, more precisely, my thoughts that I could not do something. As he talked, I realized it was all about whatever beliefs I had been harboring deep in the recesses of my mind for all my life. These are thoughts that have been ingrained in me somehow by someone (or a group of someones) throughout my life and mostly during my early years. Parents, teachers, family (in my case it was my brother whom I idolized), clergy, friends and then eventually the media - all contributed to what I think and feel now. I thought to myself "Do I want to be a puppet?" Because that's what I am being by simply going along and following in the footsteps of what was brainwashed into my heart, mind and soul - no matter how good the intentions were. Of course I don't want to be a puppet. I want to achieve those things I want to achieve. And with some examination of what my beliefs are, I can remodel my thoughts, feelings and subsequent actions. Remember that a belief is just a thought you've been thinking for a long time. Here's a wonderful quote from Abraham:
A belief is nothing more than a chronic pattern of thought, and you have the ability—if you try even a little bit—to begin a new pattern, to tell a new story, to achieve a different vibration, to change your point of attraction. The Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration, and you can easily change your vibrational point of attraction by visualizing the lifestyle you desire and holding your attention upon those images until you begin to feel relief, which will indicate that a true vibrational shift has occurred.
Excerpted from the book "Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth and Happiness"
I invite you to use the next 12 days before the New Year to take a look at your beliefs. Use your future goals/desires to figure them out. What happens when you say "I am making 50% more money than I did last year at this time"? Is there a "but" that comes after that? If so, that is where your limiting beliefs are lying. Use this technique repeatedly to figure out where those limiting thoughts lie and then make a commitment to do something about changing them. Examine your life, take inventory, what is there about your life that will actually contradict those thoughts. I bet you'll come up with a great list and once you look at the list, you'll go "what the heck have I been thinking all these years? Look at all I've accomplished". You see, we do NOT take inventory enough. We live in the moment and do not use our experience or our past to propel us forward. Or, if we do look at the past, we'll be looking at the negative aspects because that's the mood we're in at the time. Try to look at your life objectively and pick out the great things that you've done, received or accomplished in your life. Be grateful for the joy you have. Start this process by saying your "gratitudes" - I am thankful for....
