If you could do anything with your life, what would you do? What do you want most in the world? If nothing was stopping you from achieving everything you wanted, what would you achieve?
Stop reading for a moment and find your answers.
Have you ever ask yourself these questions? Do you stop at the answer and move on with your life in the same direction you have always been going?
It might seem like the things you want are completely out of your realm of possibilities — It might feel like in order to get what you want, you have to:
Sacrifice a lot
Work really hard
In thinking this way, you’ve limited your dreams and goals to what you think you can achieve based on your current “reality.” However, your perception of reality is askew. Let’s realign it.
To get what you want in life, you actually have to:
1. Decide what you want
2. Create a future vision as if you’re living it now
3. See things as you’d like them to be
If you are a waitress, there is no reason why you can’t become a CEO. If you want to write a book, there is no reason why you can’t put words to paper. If you are a teacher, there is no reason why you can’t still have passive income. The only thing stopping you is your belief that doing want you want can’t possibly make you wealthy. It can. Because wealth building isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme, it’s a get-freedom-permanently process.
So, if you’ve identified what you are passionate about, find ways to create abundance out of it. Putting your energy towards a positive feeling or outcome will inevitably create abundance in what you want, in the same way that putting your negative energy towards something will create an abundance of negativity. That cubicle job you hate, but pays the bills, isn’t building wealth. You’re not creating abundance doing something you aren’t passionate about. You’re just living paycheck to paycheck.
Another part of changing your reality is to start asking yourself the right questions. Not, “why does this keep happening to me? How am I such a failure?” Your brain will easily find the answer and you’ll continue down the rabbit hole of reaffirming a negative belief system. Ask yourself questions like, “what can I do to improve my life?” your brain will also find the answer to that.
These steps, though seemingly small, are huge leaps forward. Changing your thought habits create positive and constructive actions. Actions create results. And that’s building wealth.
