What are you thinking?

"If you think you can do it or think you can't do it, either way you're right." - Henry Ford

Everyone has heard that expression, repeated as a motivational tool to help people understand the power of their own mind when it comes to success or failure.

Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich says: There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge. Both poverty and riches are offspring of thought.

Robert Kiyosaki in his coaching program outlines that money is just an idea.

So, why do these gurus spend time ensuring that "you've got your head right" before outlining other paths to riches? Because your conscious and your unconscious mind can undermine your efforts to attain new levels of wealth.

How? If you think you can't you won't. It's simple as that.

When you have a very strong belief - one that taps into your beliefs and your emotions - you will find that similar thoughts, feelings or beliefs are drawn to you. Have you ever smiled at a stranger, and found them smiling back? In the simplist of terms, the reaction you are looking for is drawn to you.

Try this: Have you ever had a really bad day and it seemed like everyone around you is in a bad mood. If during this bad day you started smiling at people and having a more sunny disposition, you would find that those around you seem to be in a better mood.

It's amazing how a conscious act, such as smiling, can be contagious. That one act feeds your beliefs (that people are in a good mood, as an example) and that belief translates into positive results.

How deep do you believe it? If you are speaking one set of words but don't believe them, your contradiction can be transmitted to those around you .. unconsciously and unintentionally ... and that can limit your success and even prevent you from succeseeding.

How strongly do you believe you can attain real wealth? The answer better be very strong ... you need that strength to conquer all the challenges that lie ahead ... and you need it to draw the success to you that you need.
