Secrets To Wealth



Armed with your financial plans, you're ready to do battle with the forces that have kept you from achieving your financial dreams and aspirations in the past.

It's very important to realise that your convictions and desires to succeed are governed as much by your own internal thinking as they are by the level of your income or other physical constraints.

Therefore, it's not just the practical measures - such as building our plan - that are important, but also the way we tune our thinking machine and imagination.

How this secret works in practice

Think of a sport such as darts. It probably conjures up images of beer bellied Poms. The reality, though, is that there's nothing between the top competitors in that sport. On any given day, they'll all make three treble twenties with three darts. The winners win, not with better technique, but with better mental application.

Reaching your financial goals involves changing the way you think. Your spending and savings patterns are a result of behaviour learned over a lifetime. And, as such, they are powerful mental constraints you need to remove or remold. The good news is, that, in turn, you can harness that huge power and use it to your own benefit.

They say that changing a habit takes 28 days. Be warned, therefore, that applying the simple techniques we'll discuss will take time to effect positive results. But the explosive growth and success you'll achieve will be well worth the wait and effort.

Tune your internal thinking machine with the following tips

Tip 1: Tell family and friends about your goals. Articulating your goals will not only convince others of your desire to succeed but, more importantly, will also convince you and your subconscious.

Tip 2: Re-read your financial plan daily. Reading your goals and actions will focus your mind on where you're going and how you're going to get there. Reviewing your plan every day will help reinforce the necessary life style changes.

Tip 3: Only go for your financial goals if you really want to achieve them. Achieving them won't be easy. You may already be sacrificing your spare time to do a budget, an activity which may not be something you really want to do. Still keen? Then re-read your goals each day. And don't forget to action the action points - you have to go to wealth, it won't come to you.

Tip 4: Be completely and utterly focused on your goals.

Tip 5: If you think that you're not achieving your goals, take some time out to re-focus them.

Tip 6: Every time you have a negative thought, immediately replace it with your financial success vision. EVERY TIME.
