What would you like to receive?

18 Aug

               The Thinking Man sculpture at Musée Rodin in Paris                    I have been reading a lot of self-help books  on how to create wealth. From Rich Dad – Poor Dad to The Secret and even One Minute Millionaire. I was not sure if I was going to get anything out of these books. But I was looking for more. What is the thinking process that successful business starters have?

  1. This is a "thought bubble". It is an...First of all, successful business starters do not believe that they have to do it alone. They create a team of creative thinkers and people who have the skills, connections, and resources they themselves do not have.
  2. Secondly, they brainstorm and research what people are interested in, what are needs,  and what sells well
  3. Third, creative thinkers tap into more than one resource to create their business. You should never have all your wealth come from one source. Multiple sources of income ensure continuous flow of money.
  4. And, they invest positive energy and invest into other people. Money is a type of energy. Energy is attracted by like-energy.

(This is not the complete list)

What does this mean? That means first of all, it’s good to get a team together with different type of skills, such as Idea creators, strategists, analysts, and “what if’s” (the people who can Swiss cheese your idea and poke holes). Every one of these types of people have strengths and weaknesses. Delegate your weaknesses to the people who like to do what you don’t. Then create meetings where only part of the group meets to create. After they leave, invite the “what if’s” people to look for things that could flop your idea. After you go back and forth for a bit, you should be able to make your idea fool-proof.

Now, with your enthusiastic ideas and energy, you attract enthusiastic people with a lot of energy and resources. As you share with others, they will share with you. As you bounce ideas off of people, they come back with better or more ideas. See how that works? You give and get more. Always keep the best interest of others in mind while you are working on creating a better life-style. then others will keep your best interest in mind, also.

The same phenomenon is true with anything. Whatever you put out, you get back. You can only get back whatever has been put into the circle to go around. Therefore, what goes around, comes around…. – sounds familiar?  You give a smile and you get more smiles back; you give a hug – you get more hugs back; you give money – you get more money back. Get my drift? All the energy you put out, you receive back with interest. Isn’t that amazing? The same holds true with emotions: emotions go out in energy. You give positive energy out and get more positive energy back. But if you focus on how bad things are, more bad things happen to you.  So, be careful what you dish out because you surely will get it back on the next round.

Do you have any Assets?

16 Jul

 Did you know that there are different types of assets?  It all depends on in what direction your thoughts go. Body conscious people think of their assets in terms of their figure, their looks, their curves, and if you are a man your muscle mass. A materialistic person thinks of assets as their possessions, such as home, car, stereo, or flat screen tv. A financially secure person considers assets those things that will generate income, i.e. their property, business, stocks and bonds.  But not many people think of assets something that everyone starts with. The things you possessed when you were born. Yes, you were born naked (at least I believe so), but you still have things that not every person has. Your gifts and talents. Those are assets, too. After all, how else can someone build anything up in life without the gift or talent they possess. Everyone builds up their lives with some type of imagination. That is an asset, too. Some other assets are creativity, vision, generosity, courage, boldness, persistence, integrity, expert connections and customer data base, valuable skills, selling, persuasion, marketing, and time management. Every person that has accomplished financial independence had to use one or some or maybe all of these assets. You generate these assets with your thoughts. For this reason, thoughts become things.  Literally, as a beginner in life or a business, you only need three resources: a good idea, the commitment to do it, and the key contacts who possess all the other resources.  That’s it!  Easy?  Not for every one. Some people have trouble thinking the positive “asset” way, instead they think in a “liability” type of way, which is in forms of anger, small mindedness, fear, anxiety, procrastination, hesitation, and laziness.  We should keep away from those habits, and dare even talk about it. What you talk about will manifest, so be careful. We don’t have to eat everything we see. And we don’t have to say everything we think. Let’s begin by watching our words and speaking (and therefore thinking) with good purpose only. if it doesn’t serve, don’t say it.

So, have every thought on purpose; and then…… Live every day on purpose!
