If you’ve studied the state of the art information so far on streamofmoney.com, what I’m about to impart will make much more sense. (Read the quote on the bottom of the home page). If you haven’t. I recommend you take your time and learn the “process” of doing the right things first (go to the mindset section). And if you’re in a hurry, there are plenty of “BSB” sites for you to visit.
First Step (Create the right Mindset)
The Guaranteed Road to Riches – Step by Step
This is a crucial first step, which if left un-nurtured, can cause all kinds of problems. This is why instructors during the selection process for special forces discover, through the arduous physical endurance tests how to sort the wheat from the chaff. The reason being, it’s far easier to train someone who has the right mindset than someone who keeps “giving up“.
NOTE: BSB = Bright Shiny Bull
You’ll discover as you travel through time, that many people will create specific patterns in their lives. And through habit, they’ll keep on doing the same things over and over again (a pattern). These behaviours will feel comfortable after a while, and any diversion will create a challenge (feel uncomfortable).
Creatures of Habit
What I’m saying is: We are creatures of habit, but for an excellent reason. And that reason is called “efficiency”. Our brains work optimally and guide us through our lives in the best way that is taught. Unfortunately, a lot of learned behaviour is outdated (doesn’t work anymore). So needs reprogramming, or relearning.
It’s not easy to think “outside” of who we think we are. So we limit ourselves through the beliefs we hold onto from our past. (which is why the self-improvement “industry” attracts so many people). If you think you can’t do something (you’re right), and conversely if you think you can?
Note: Most people can’t think outside “Their Box”, (it’s who they are)? “you’re NOT most people.”
The biggest hurdle for folk to overcome is to break old limiting beliefs/patterns, (Mainly because they’re unaware of them). For me, it was the glass ceiling restricting how much money I could earn. I used to look at the likes of “Bill Gates” and think “NO WAY”!
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m far from being as wealthy as that fella, (but my mind isn’t as limited as it was). I’ve learnt to think outside “My Box”.
So, that’s the first step. Go and read some of the articles in the mindset category, and read them repeatedly, so the ideas solidify in your brain. The concepts will form from the inside, hence the word, “Information”. And the fascinating thing about “information”, is once it’s set on the inside, We can then project it on the outside, creating “knowledge” The ledge of knowing.
Jump off the Ledge of Life
And it’s called a ledge because we haven’t made it work for us “yet”. So it could either tip over and culminate the processes involved, or sit there and gather dust.
Keep in mind; ideas are useless unless you take action. (Conceive = Believe = Achieve). And we will forever make mistakes, (it’s the best way to learn) but that’s life (deal with it).
These actions create our meanings for us. “Or how we make the meanings we choose”. So decide the choices that will benefit you, and if you feel generous, you can share with others,…
Second Step (Know your Destination)
This is a straightforward idea that we use automatically throughout our lives. For example, you fancy a bite to eat, the first thing that pops into your mind is “what’s it going to be, and how it’s gonna taste”?
You go to the destination first (in your mind), and then find a way to make it happen. This is the natural and most efficient path to a successful outcome and mostly goes unnoticed.
But for some reason, when planning more significant “projects,” people find a way of doubting their true abilities. And so the doubt dragon breaths fire all over their dreams and destroys the vestiges of a perfect outcome.
Now can you understand how crucial the first step is, to building your dream life?
For instance: You decide to share your skills with the people of the world (that’s the end goal). So first, how’re you going to promote yourself, and through what channels?
What we’re doing here, is moving back from our final goal and analysing the steps to take you there. This is what is meant when you visualise yourself being at “your” destination.
(How would it feel, what’s the weather like “up there”. How happy are you?)
These are, of course, great techniques for training your brain to already achieving the results before they’ve happened in the physical realm. (I used to do the same when I was little, and first learnt to ride a bike).
And when you think about it, it’s the same thing I described above, “when you decide to take a bite to eat”. (Now you know the power of the “Doubt Dragon”), and how it can derail your ambitions.
So keep in mind, the process can be as natural as deciding to eat a burger. Although eating a hamburger is far simpler, (not taking into account the health risks, or the fact you may be a vegetarian), but that’s a story for another website.
Third Step (Compounding)
The idea of compounding is an interesting one. Reason being, it has many functions, although one overriding principle, “Exponential Growth“.
Simply stating: Imagine you had a penny. Now double it’s worth every day for a month. At the end of the month, you’d be worth over $5,000,000 (I know, fascinating but true ; )
So, take this idea and start your own business, but don’t be like “most” people (and sit around dreaming and wishing). Hoping that one day your winning ticket will come up, (it won’t).
So, there you go, another concise, state of the art, focused, laser-like explanation of how to reach your desired goals of success and wealth
Just make sure you share your thoughts with me, so I can think of better ways to help.
