1. A Personal Message:
I’m now on myspace (www.myspace.com/jamesgoijr). Before getting on myspace, the only online community thing I’d done was AuthorNation.com. I’ve enjoyed great success at AuthorNation. In fact, I’m currently the #1 most popular writer on that website. But I can’t take all the credit. Oh, sure, I do my part. But there’s more to success than just our own actions. I owe thanks to everyone who visits my AuthorNation page to read my daily writing entries, and to the helpful AuthorNation staff.
InfinityPublishing.com is the company behind AuthorNation. It’s also the company that published my book. Infinity is a great company and I highly recommend it for book publishing. Anyway, I’d seen the notices in Infinity’s newsletter about AuthorNation, and it sounded interesting. But it was so foreign to anything I had done, and I was so busy, that I had no intentions of joining any time soon, if ever.
But the universe, apparently, had other intentions. In an unrelated email from one of the Infinity people, that person told me I should join AuthorNation. That went in one ear and out the other. Then, in a subsequent email that person told me I should get over to AuthorNation and sign up right away! Well, I took that as a sign that the universe was telling me it wanted me at AuthorNation. So, with the help of a tech-savvy friend who handled the technical details, I joined AuthorNation.
Now back to myspace. People had been telling me I should get on myspace. I wanted to. But I found myspace very intimidating and, too, I would not have known where to start with building a page there. So, I had no intentions of joining myspace any time soon. Well, I was talking about myspace to one of my AuthorNation friends and, to my surprise, she volunteered to build a myspace page for me. I only needed to email her a few photos and she got everything else she needed off of my website. And she built me a really great myspace page. And, as you may know, I’ve been in Oprah’s top 20 friends space on myspace for some time now. I won’t go into that story here as I’ve written about it on my page at AuthorNation.
So, left to my own, I would not be on AuthorNation OR myspace right now. Yet, here I am, currently the #1 most popular writer at AuthorNation.com, with a thriving myspace page, and currently listed as one of Oprah’s top 20 friends on myspace. What’s my Point? My point is that if you will (as I do) make use of the concepts and techniques I teach in my book, my ezine, and in other places, the universe will arrange circumstances as needed to further your progress towards achieving your goals. Do what I teach, and you will succeed, one way or another, even in spite of yourself. Your success will come about, to a large extent, as a result of the actions of people. This fact is illustrated by my own examples above. But, always remember, it is the universe which is the motive force behind the events which unfold. And the universe, of course, is working at the behest of and, in essence, as an extension of, your subconscious mind. Have a great month.
2. A Concept:
If you’ve been interested in the mind power/money connection for any length of time, you’ve likely heard of (and maybe read) the 1937 classic Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. It’s perhaps the best-known and most-successful book ever on this subject. In that book Mr. Hill states, “Fortunes gravitate to men whose minds have been prepared to attract them, just as surely as water gravitates to the ocean.” If you’ve read my book, Mr. Hill’s book, or any of the other numerous books covering various angles of this subject, then you know that you must indeed “prepare” your mind to attract money.
This state of mind which determines whether you attract or repel money, and to what degrees, I call the “money mindset.” It’s the subject and the title of the fourth chapter of my book. Your money mindset is, simply, how you think and feel about money. Your thoughts and feelings can combine to form a powerful vibratory force for attracting money. And it’s not as mysterious or hard to do as it may sound to you. And, the more you study what I teach, the more you will learn to create a money mindset which will not only attract money, but one which will attract all the money you can prepare yourself to receive. For the moment, just grasp the concept of your “money mindset”, the way you think and feel about money.
3. A Technique:
RELEASE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS
Once you’ve grasped the concept of the money mindset, you’ll be ready to start modifying your own. In my book I give you various ways to do that. One of the most powerful ways to improve your money mindset is to release your negative money-related emotions. Your emotions are vibrational messages you send out into the universe. Those messages find their vibrational matches and that energy returns to you in the form of modified circumstances.
Your money-related emotions modify your financial circumstances. So, you want all of your emotions having to do with finances to be positive or, at least, neutral. One easy way to help yourself stop having negative money-related emotions is to stop thinking negative money-related thoughts. By how you think, you cause yourself to feel in ways which correspond to that thinking. So, thinking positive thoughts about financial matters will cause you to have positive money-related emotions, and thinking negative thoughts about financial matters will cause you to have negative money-related emotions. To become proficient at using mind power to attract money, you must begin to release your negative money-related emotions. There are various ways you can do that, and you’ll want to start learning those ways.
4. Action For This Month:
THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS
As you now know, thinking positive thoughts about financial matters will cause you to have positive money-related circumstances. So, concerning your finances and money and the economy in general, you want to always focus on the positive aspects of things. You want to look for, and dwell upon, the bright side of any financial realities or eventualities you become aware of. And you want to avoid thinking negative, pessimistic, thoughts concerning financial matters of any sort.
The way you tend to think (either positively or negatively) concerning specific subjects is the way you will tend to think in general. It has to do, in part, with the brain’s neurons which are, basically, cells which transmit nerve impulses. According to how you think, neuronal pathways are created in your brain which then perpetuate the modes of thinking which brought them into being. And your brain is, in part, a complex chemical factory. When you think either upbeat or downbeat thoughts and feel the corresponding feelings, chemicals are released in your brain which will cause you to have more of those types of thoughts and feelings. This all means, simply, the ways in which you think will always tend toward becoming habitual. To start attracting more money, start thinking positive thoughts about money and about everything in general. And start this month. Remember, your positive thoughts and feelings will help bring about positive circumstances.
