While the word “no” is a great tool when it comes to setting healthy boundaries for yourself…
There are times when the word can truly work against you!
By the time an average person reaches the age of 18, he or she has heard “no” about 148 thousand times!
“You can’t do that…”
“You shouldn’t do this…”
“You don’t have permission!”
They’re all different versions of the same word. It’s all no, no, no – a whole house built of “no!”
Unfortunately, the number of times you hear “yes” is far smaller.
When you’re working so hard to create wealth and success in life this can have an adverse impact on what you’re trying to achieve…
Fortunately there’s a way to override negativity.
But first let’s explore how “inner programming” can affect your “outer life”…
Repetition Programs Your Mind
Your brain and physiology learns through repetition.
Whether you like it or not, the more you repeat something, the more it becomes part of you.
Repetition is programming…
Which in turn creates beliefs, which in turn determine your thoughts and emotions, which in turn determine your actions, which in turn determine your results.
Have you noticed how you tend to think the same kind of thoughts over and over again?
Studies show that we have about 50,000 thoughts per day, and a whopping 90% of them are repetitive! Like an old, tired record.
And remember, repetition creates patterns and habits.
You’re literally hypnotizing yourself with your repeated thoughts.
Other research shows that 77% of everything that most people think about is negative, self-damaging, hindering, and counterproductive.
It goes even further than that.
Your subconscious mind controls almost everything about you. For example, it controls your autonomic nervous system…
Which all means that your hormones, energy levels, actions and so forth are controlled by the subconscious mind.
If you’ve told yourself that you are clumsy, the subconscious will work with your hormones, motor skills, and so on and make you act, move and talk in a clumsy way.
If you’ve told yourself that you don’t fit in social situations, you’ll find yourself standing in the corner not fitting in.
If you tell yourself repeatedly you don’t have enough money, will never have enough money and just can’t seem to get ahead… guess what?!
Whatever you say, boss. Your subconscious is like a computer. Whatever you program into it, it makes happen. No questions asked.
You are the boss, and whatever you say, happens.
Your imagination, your thoughts, what you perceive, what you don’t perceive, what you see and what you miss, how you act, what you feel…
These are all determined by one thing: your programming.
Your programming is what you repetitively tell yourself (and what you repetitively got told or observed during your formative years).
Transforming Negative into Positive
Well, the same way you create all programming: practice and repetition.
You have to not only find what works positively for you… But you have to practice that new positive way over and over until it becomes part of you.
Positive thinking and self-help advice won’t work unless you make it permanent within yourself by practicing it over and over.
Your entire physiology has to be rewired; your neural pathways (which create pattern and memory) have to be redrawn.
All this happens by practice. Repetition. Repetition. Repetition. Practice.
Then one day, like with everything else you ever learned through practice, you just find yourself automatically doing it! It becomes you!
Now, how fast and to what extent can you grow your consciousness within one lifetime?
The quick and dirty answer is that there’s an average rate of growth, but there are no limits.
According to Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., in his bestselling book Power vs. Force, people on average tend to increase their consciousness by 5 points in a lifetime (on a scale of 0 to 1000).
So if you were born at a consciousness level of 300, you tend to get to 305 by the time you die. But that is an average that includes billions of people.
There’s nothing to limit anyone except their own choices. Many are on record for having achieved 100% or even 2000% increases or more, where they’re literally renewed and are different in just about every way.
So if you wish to leap forward, know that nothing can stop you. But also know that you have to leap forward in your mind first.
You have to re-write the negative programming that’s keeping you where you are.
And reprogramming is done best through acting in the new way and practicing that over and over until it becomes part of you. The more you open up, let go, allow, trust and not resist or defend your old ways, the faster you will move forward.
Practice. Whatever you do, practice until it becomes you. And it will happen automatically — you will find yourself renewed.
If you’d like to practice changing your programming so that you can create more and more financial abundance in your life…
