Reclaiming Control Of Your Mind
Do you feel like you don’t have control and agency over your own mind?
Do you feel like your mind is an unruly beast that does what it wants to do, and when you try to harness it, it won’t go there? Do you feel like your fears, anxieties and limiting beliefs are taking over and overriding common sense?
FEARS WILL STOP YOU
Although they may not admit it, a lot of people are afraid of success.
They have fears like, “what if the money corrupts me?” In Mark Hoverson’s case, his big fear was, “what if I get sued?”
When you have these kinds of fears, your subconscious mind takes over and will sabotage any of your efforts to succeed and reach your financial goals.
Think about these fears and ask yourself whether they really make sense. Take control of the fears that have taken control of your mind. Mark realized that if he gets sued in the process of building his business, it won’t be that big of a deal because he can afford a better lawyer by then.
NEGATIVE BELIEFS WILL STOP YOU
If you have any negative, resenting beliefs about wealth and money, they too will take control of your mind and sabotage your efforts.
Do you believe that wealth is a zero sum game? In other words, if you make a million dollars, it means that you’ve robbed others of the chance of making a million dollars?
Mark remembers a time that his wife told him she wanted to make $8,000 a month. His response was, “We don’t need that much. We don’t want to be greedy.”
Your moral and ethical beliefs may be a hurdle you need to overcome. Until you do that, your subconscious mind will continue to control you.
Instead, you need to believe in your success and your financial goals. You need to genuinely believe that the world will be a better place if you are a millionaire. Then, you’ll take the necessary action to get there.
