It’s a funny thing. Most people will tell you they’d like to experience greater wealth, prosperity and abundance – but while entertaining this idea they get hit from left field with their emotional resistance to success – and this resistance knocks the “better life” idea out of mind.
Strange but true. And it may cause you to wonder WHY someone would resist the very thing he says he wants.
Much of the resistance comes from beliefs you were hypnotized into accepting as facts. Hypnosis is NOT too strong a word, either. Just like a subject on a stage is being told he is now a doctor, if the trance is deep enough, he’ll believe he is a doctor and start acting like one. The same thing happens to us in regard to money and success – the only difference is we don’t realize it is happening. We didn’t volunteer to go on stage while the hypnotist dangles a pendulum before our eyes. Instead, we grew up in an environment where the pendulum was ALWAYS in motion, and without realizing it, we took on the same ideas about life that we were shown.
If, for example, mom and dad always ended up with more bills than money to pay them with, then this is probably your reality, too.
Or let’s say that your mom and dad always complained about money – made negative remarks about it and cursed it and those who have it. Well, if they did so, chances are excellent that you do, too.
Yesterday, when I was preparing to board my plane in Tokyo, a man recognized me and struck a conversation. I stood listening to him go on and on about the work he has been doing overseas, and almost all of it was complaining.
12 hours later, when I was catching my connecting flight back in Houston, I sat next to a man with a 50″ waistline. The plane approached the runway then stopped. 20 minutes later the flight attendant informed us that there were delays due to weather and that there was a long line in front of us. The big-bellied man sitting next to me looked at me and began to explode, “They always do this here. This is the worst airport in the world. They have six runways here and they only use one or two. We’ll be sitting here a couple hours, I just know it.”
I put my book down for a spell, smiled and listened. It was fascinating to see this man go off.
Now, what I have just described might not sound like it has anything to do with wealth, but it does. Why? Because almost everyone you meet complains about money most of the time. They speak of being “buried in debt.” They talk about bills “piling up.” They even say they’re “drowning” in debt or barely able to “keep their head above water.”
When I hear or read these sort of statements, I think to myself, “What great metaphors you have, Watson.”
It’s amazing to me how someone can take a stack of bills and pile them up so high in their own mind that they’re “buried” beneath them. Or how your bills become an ocean that you’re drowning in.
Wow! How do you drown in debt?
I know you can be swimming in money – but how do you drown in debt?
And how far do the bills need to stack up before you’re buried in them?
Most importantly, where’d you get these mental images about money or the lack thereof? And where are you going in life if you keep these images in mind? Where are you going in life if you don’t take the time to de-hypnotize yourself from false beliefs?
The good news is that regardless of the financial environment you grew up in, regardless of the beliefs you learned, you can change them – and the process is rather simple. It will require one thing though. You must have the desire to rise above the old beliefs and replace them with the thoughts, habits and zero resistance attitudes of those who have already succeeded. If you let go of the resistance, if you give up the struggle, if you stop forming mental images of drowning and being buried and replace them with images of everything good coming to you in waves – then you can succeed.
Since 2003 I’ve been teaching this in seminars wherein I integrate marketing know-how with a Zero Resistance Attitude. You can observe this for yourself in one of two ways:
1. Go to KnockoutMarketing.com and order the DVD’s from the first seminar I ever gave on How to Build an Info-Publishing Empire on the Internet – from a spare bedroom in your spare time. They’re a steal for $497.00 and along with this order I’ll make you a monthly member of my all-new Zero Resistance Wealth Club.
2. If you’d like to learn from me LIVE – then enroll in the seminar I’m having May 16-18, in Tampa, It’ll be awesome and you’ll leave the event with a skill so dearly needed in today’s world.
Take either one of these actions and you’ll be leaving the old beliefs behind as you move to a whole new level of being. Look forward to seeing you move up the ladder.
