What do I mean, “always works?”
This means when I use this sort of thinking, the 51% thinking I call it, I always get whatever I’m after.
But this rarely happens. The reason is because it is difficult (but not impossible) to think this way.
Here’s the deal: You have a thought – a goal, let’s say – of requiring $1000 to pay for your homeowner’s insurance premium by April 1. You know that coincides with your mortgage payment and maybe things have been a little tight this year, so in your mind, you really don’t know how you’re going to do it.
Those who have had success with this thought process would say to you that if you feed your mind thoughts of knowing that you will have the $1000 premium by April 1st, there is no way you will NOT have it.
But what happens is – as you probably know – life and everything else gets in the way and creates a huge excuse for us to think that we WON’T get those funds and that we’ll miss the payment, be late on the mortgage, have a myriad of problems that will affect us for months; maybe years.
According to the successful, you only need to tip the scales to achieve success. This means, you only need to believe 51% of the time that you WILL have the money and that everything will be fine.
It’s true, you cannot have two thoughts at the same time – you can’t be negative about the money and positive about the money at the same time; you can only be one or the other. So the choice must be 51% of the time thinking and believing that you have the money (or it will come in some form). Don’t worry about thinking negatively – unfortunately, this happens automatically for most of us.
Here is help to think positively about your outcome. Feel free to print this out, share it with others, bookmark it.
- Write down the goal in the future as if you already have it. “I received the $1000 and paid for the premium with time to spare. I am always blessed with money which comes to me.”
- Journal about the goal and write how you will feel when you make the payment. “Today my daughter and I celebrated by visiting our favorite frozen custard stand because the payment for the insurance was paid and money continues to flow into this family. We are grateful for all we have and are entrusted with.”
- Listen to uplifting things. One of my favorite hangouts is Hayhouse Radio. Make it a tab on your web browser so you can one-click and play it often.
- Associate with positive people. I can’t say enough about this one. People are the main reason you feel the way you do about anything. Stand up for what you believe in.
