A lot of people may have heard about mindfulness and creating your own success. A lot of it is rubbish, but believe me when I say that there is a core of truth in all of this. You may think that making money by focusing your thoughts is a hype that will pass again, but did you know that scientists have been writing about this since the early years of last century and even before that?
The mind has a lot of power, to say the least. When you are feeling down, nothing seems to go right and when you feel relaxed and happy, you are on top of the world. Your mind has an impact on your entire system, your surroundings, your wellbeing and even your financial status.
I do not want to get into too much psychological details, but I want to give you one example that every one can relate too. Let's say that you have been working on a report for your boss that you could not quite get together. You showed him and he was not impressed. The week after that, you have made him a different report. This actually is a topic you know very much about and you were able to make a very good report on it. In your heart you knew that this is the best report you have made in years, but based on your last meeting with your boss, you start to doubt. You quit and for some reason, when you stand in your bosses office you can not get the right words out of your mouth and you look insecure.
Your boss picks up these negative signals and of course he has a lot of comments on your work. You get frustrated because you know you have done an exemplary job. You respond to your boss in a negative manner and it gets from bad to worse and you have to do the work all over again.
The reason why this happened is because you were insecure and you doubted yourself. Deep inside you knew that the job you did was right, but your mind started toying with you. It connected with bad past experiences and made you fail while there was no reason for failure at all.
This example is one you can translate to all kinds of problems you may have, even the lack of money. What is the real reason you do not have enough money to come by? Why is it that there there are very rich people in the world and you are not one of them? Because they focus on what they want and what they need. They set their minds to success and not to failure. They believe in themselves and in their capacity to be rich, unlike you. But, there is hope for you. You can start by being making a lot of money and being rich right now. All you need to do is focus your mind and the rest will follow!
