“Do not try to project your will, or your thoughts, or your mind out into space to “act” on things or people. Keep your mind at home. It can accomplish more there than elsewhere.” ~The Science of Getting Rich, p.35
Nancy Matthew’s course, Receive Your Riches, is based on the path she followed while putting The Science of Getting Rich into action. And since the UBC is also 30 days this month, what better way to join the two together through writing!
While watching a made-for-television movie back in the day that was deemed as a little risqué to a few, my father caught one short clip of a baby being born; no worries—there wasn’t’ any skin shown. The mother was in the hardest stage of labor and screaming uncontrollably. And then he screamed, “Turn that thing off!”
This story came to mind while merely reading the description of today’s assignment from Nancy. “Turn off the distractions.”
Often I’ve written about going down that rabbit hole chasing whatever fancy butterfly was flittering about before me.
And yes, I lost sight of what I was doing, giving attention to something other than what would make my dream come true, make me rich, or writing that next book.
Fear. Doubt. Lack.
Three items that can keep us from gaining ground, moving forward.
Even though Mr. Wattles says to stay away from these thoughts, I believe it’s important to meet and face them head on. Only then is it possible to totally move past the fear, doubt, and lack we constantly let into our certain way of thinking.
I have learned that these thoughts, or voices, if you will, have something important to say to us and we must listen. For instance, when from inside your head you hear, “You will never make this business work,” turn around and ask, “Why do you say that? What proof do you have to support this claim?”
If the response is silence, then there is no substantiated reasoning behind the statement.
But if you do hear a response such as, “No one will buy what you’re selling,” you can now answer that concern. “Oh yes, they will. People are in need of wanting to know what to do next. They need someone who understands what they’re going through; who’s been there and come out winning on the other side.”
(This is by far my favorite tool to teach my clients!)
Turn off the noise. Get rid of the static. Begin to create and keep on creating. Not only teach but show as well how to get away from the fear, doubt, and lack by simply talking about strength, beliefs, and abundance.
Can you keep the positive aspect of an ideal without bringing the negative wording into the mix? Try it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
To your success,
“Since belief is all important, it behooves you to guard your thoughts, and as your beliefs will be shaped to a very great extent by the things you observe and think about, it is important that you should carefully govern to what you give your attention.” ~ W.D. Wattles
