What is your greatest dream? Imagine everything in your life going
absolutely right, what would happen? What would you do? Where would you live?
Who would be in your life? Set no limits: let your mind wander freely! What's
the absolutely wildest thing you can imagine right NOW that would help you?
Write this down. Know that there is a line of probabilities where all this and
more does happen. Know that this line of probabilities is open to you. It's
When you never have enough money, one reason is your continued focus on lack of
money. You believe you have a lack of money. Change your mindset. The
only reason this situation is perpetuating is that you continue to believe in
it. It is your way of life. You think of it as something that is a part of your
life now. The same is true for any 'bad' situation you find yourself in.
Turn that around. When you find yourself thinking about lack of money, take a
step back. Unfocus, and remember that your focus is what keeps the lack in
place. Remember that by unfocusing, you remove the hold that the situation has
on you. There are a million ways in which everything can change in a fraction
of a second.
You do not have a money problem. More than that: you never even had a
money problem, because that $1,000 was always around the
corner. One phone call is enough. One "chance" meeting. One "random"
internet search... There are always options. Those options are available to you
at all times, and it is up to you to choose them, or not.
Remember that whenever you see yourself choosing lack of money. Just unfocus and
remember your options.
Now... if there is one thing I have learnt this year, it is to never set
limits, of any kind. There are ALWAYS options, and even if you believe
you have the solution, don't become complacent. Expect even better!
One of the most subtle and invisible ways of setting limits is focusing on one
Don't count on your partner to make you happy. Don't count on that important
deal to come through to save your business. Don't count on your co-workers to
make your workplace happier. Don't count on your boss to get a raise. Any such
situation is, after all, only one of infinitely MANY possibilities that are
available to make our dreams happen. Allow those other possibilities to
continue to grow and bear fruit when their time comes. Don't stop them in their
tracks by saying "Phew... I've got a solution. Thanks, other ones, but you can
all go home now."
Don't count on anyone. You don't have to. It will happen anyway. Look around and
see the abundance of possible solutions, the obvious ones and the
not-so-obvious ones. You can name at least 10, easily. How likely or unlikely
you think they are is totally irrelevant.
Co-creation happens on a massive scale. Everyone, without exception, rallies
around your expectations, and everybody else's. You make the choices. You set
the goals. You draw the line. You decide when you're satisfied.
Don't be satisfied too easily!
Also think of your own contribution - your effortless, automatic contribution
to others' lives by doing what you do best. Imagine what it feels like for
those thousands or millions who will enjoy the results of your acts. Imagine
the possibilities! The growth! The creativity! The joy!
There are no limitations. None. Never be satisfied with what you have. Always
expect better to come.
When you have one solution, expect to find another 10. When you have those 10,
expect another 100, or 1,000, or...
There is always more.
