The big elephant in the room always seems to be money, so let’s talk about money. Yes, you need money and most likely a lot of it in order to buy things for a lifestyle you want to enjoy. Money is required for the purchase of just about everything. However, it is not the money that makes the choice about how it will be utilized. When you want a thing, do you think about money first? Do you look at something and change your mind about wanting it when you discover the price? In all honesty, how can the price of a thing dictate your desire?
Your conscious awareness of your big idea is the golden nugget that shines above your current results. Your current results are the manifestations of your past actions. And to compare results with your dream is a dramatic waste of your time and energy. You may as well forget about your dreams if you continue to engage in that kind of thinking. That behavior is “an endless loop of confusion.”
Increase Your Awareness of How to Earn Money
If you want money, you have to earn it. There is no such thing as something for nothing! To earn money you must provide service to other people. “The amount of money you earn will always be in exact ratio to the amount of service you provide.” Make a decision. Ask yourself this question: “What do I want to do?” Use your higher mental faculty - REASON. This means think of things you want and like to do. Write those down. Leave thoughts of money out of it. Dollar bills do not possess the power to think! But you do, and think you must do now.
Bring Order to Your Mind
Armed with your list of things you want to do, you may wonder how you will earn compensation doing those things. You can do it and this makes sense when you consider that you “work for satisfaction and earn money from service you provide.” To establish order in your mind, choose something you want. Then make a decision. (A true decision means commitment to achieve a certain result.) Committed decisions show up in two places, your calendar and your checkbook. Take action – do something now.
An example of an action you can do now is to write out how you will do it. Now perform one thing you wrote down. This is easy, but if you allow your old thinking to stop you from taking action, you will return to “the endless loop of confusion.”
Money Is A Big Idea
Alas, money is an idea that someone other than you thought of first. The good news is that you can use that idea to your advantage if you will take your mind off of money. Allow yourself to get involved with your own ideas. Think big and enhance the vision you have for what you want to do. In so doing, you will raise your conscious awareness to the level of where your desire lives and cause it to manifest as results in your life.
There is no danger of going backward when your attention is locked and focused forward.
