Are you trying to manifest money with little to no success, leading you to wonder how does manifesting money actually work?
Allow me to let you in on something that not many will tell you.
It’s the well-guarded, untold “secret” on what’s holding you back from manifesting money into your life.
I was on the verge of banging my head against a brick wall until I realised the missing link to what was holding me back from having the amount of money that I had desired.
You may have a financial goal that you want to reach. Yet, despite your best efforts, you have not been too successful in fully committing to that goal in the long term to achieve it.
Slowly, that goals became a thing of the past. A wish, a desire that never came to pass.
“Damn it,” you curse. “Such is life. It wasn’t meant to be”. And you continue to live your life as it is now.
Since it was your goal and nobody else’s, at times you may wonder why your enthusiasm and motivation in pursuing that goal had dwindled, despite your initial burst of, “I’ll do whatever it takes to make my goal come true.”
Could it be that that goal wasn’t what you actually, well and truly, wanted?
Could it be that you had unforeseeable barriers that stood in your way; obstacles that you didn’t even know existed, and they held you back from further pursuing and achieving your goal?
What’s holding you back from money and wealth?
What’s holding you back from joy and happiness?
What’s holding you back from achieving your goals and desires?
What’s holding you back from living your dream life?
What’s holding you back from landing that perfect job?
Once you’ve decided on a goal, and you went after it with guns a blazing. And you worked hard every night and day, sometimes late into the night, and during the weekends, giving it your best shot.
Yet after spending many months in its pursuit, working as many hours as you can fit during any given day, often skipping lunch, missing out on your favourite TV programmes and excusing yourself from socialising with your friends, you found yourself facing obstacles time and time again.
So, what’s holding you back? What are those obstacles?
Some obstacles can be easily remedied. Such as, register your home business.
But, what about the obstacles that you never knew existed that are powerfully holding you back?
What are they and where did they come from?
Such powerful obstacles can put a halt to your success.
These obstacles can stop you from taking consistent action.
They have the might to prevent you from pursuing your goals.
They have the force to have you remain stuck where you are.
These obstacles dominate and control your life.
They have full supremacy over you.
The clout your invisible obstacles possess is phenomenal
As Marcel Proust once said, “the voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
There is in existence a vigorous force, one that has immense power and rule over you; one that has the influence to control your actions and behaviours.
There are many such forces that reign supremacy over you. When they combine their energy, they become a formidable force; a force that may be impenetrable.
This combination is a strength that cannot be ignored if you want to improve your financial situation.
This may seem scary.
You may suspend any thought of living your dream successful life and resign to go through life on default — allowing whatever is holding you back to continue its stranglehold on you.
You may develop and cherish the notion of “why bother.”
You could. No one’s stopping you.
But before you entertain the idea to quit, consider this: Think about some of the most successful people in this world, think about how successful people think, and ask yourself this one question:
Did they face the same supreme obstacles and forces that you did?
More than likely, they had the same obstacles and challenges that you did, or are facing.
They did not quit because their dream life outweighed the combination of forces that stood in their way.
They learned from Jonathan Lockwood Huie who said, “life is all in the perspective we take on it.”
The successful people of this great world saw the obstacles and barriers as things they can overcome, and through perseverance and determination they did.
That’s the magic of how successful people think, one that we all should adopt.
What are these powers that rule your life?
These powers, these barriers that we are referring to are those that you hold within yourself; those that lay alive and kicking, active and full of zip within your mind.
These dynamic and highly operational inner obstacles hold you back from getting what you want, irrespective of how much action you take, in spite of the fact that you work so hard every night and day, in spite of how many hours you put in, and regardless of how much knowledge you have under your belt.
Such obstacles will not allow you to get ahead in your life… unless they are dealt with.
And they can be dealt with — remember how successful people think.
The “rulers” of your life are your fears, your self-image, your self-esteem, your level of self-confidence, the variety of limiting and sabotaging beliefs that you hold.
They collectively act as a powerful resistance to achieving what you desire, even if you have a burning desire for success, for money.
Your heartfelt dreams may hit a solid brick wall, one that they cannot climb.
Should your burning desire allow you to deviate around such a wall, your low self-image will not carry you far enough down the road to achievement; in fact, it may only carry you as far as having the idea.
Your depleted self-image will only carry you a short distance.
It’s the same with your fears and limiting beliefs; they may stop you right at the beginning or after a few short blocks.
How will you “deal” with the massive powers that are holding you back?
Here’s what Michael Jordan had to say: “If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
Take the time to consider what’s holding you back:
I don’t have the necessary skills
I am not talented enough
It’s far too time-consuming
I work late hours already, and when I get home, I’m too tired
I don’t have what it takes
I am not that great at computers
My family keep getting in the way
I’m too old to be a big success
I don’t have the money
I’m too shy
What will people say about me
I don’t know how to express myself
There’s too much competition
I’m a single mother/father
I can’t stay focused
Do you see a pattern here?
Do you think that’s how successful people think — certainly not!
“The only one who can make you give up is yourself.” – Sidney Sheldon
It’s high time you realised that you are not less capable, talented or skilled than any other successful person.
You and everyone on earth run by the same 24-hour timeline and possess a single brain.
Success depends on how you make use of such facilities.
Why did they achieve success, and you didn’t?
The difference between you and the successful achievers is the mindset.
You need to adopt how successful people think.
They learned to transform their then failure mindset into a success mindset, and they did so by challenging much of the same obstacles that you currently hold. They confronted their habitual negative thoughts, their fears, their limiting beliefs, and many other forms of resistance.
The high achievers learned and practiced, took consistent action to overcome such obstacles. They worked and worked and worked. They worked smart as well as hard.
Your lack of success has nothing to do with talent, knowledge or skills. All these can be learned.
Your lack of success has nothing to do with time.
You can work on your success for an hour in the evening after dinner, or you can wake up an hour or two earlier while your home is quiet.
Your lack of success has nothing to do with such “excuses.”
Can you see how such a not-so-successful mindset could interfere with your efforts to being victorious?
John Wooden once said, “don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
Realise that success can be achieved by taking certain calculated steps and risks. You tried to be a success in your own way. You took calculated steps and risks of your own, but gradually doubts intervened and slowed you down.
Perhaps you jumped from one goal to the next, from one project to the next, from one action step to the next, and yet you still achieved no major breakthrough.
Why? Why can’t you get there?
What’s holding you back still?
It’s not enough to sit down at your computer and press a few keys thinking, “Here goes. I’m on my way to success. I’m ready to join the Bill Gates of this world.”
That’s not how successful people think.
As soon as you say that, and as soon as your fingers whiz across the keyboard, your subconscious fears, limiting beliefs and other resistance thoughts and emotions emerge.
And this group of towering obstacles that reside within your subconscious mind are by far more powerful than your willpower or strength of will.
Your subconscious blocks always win hands down.
The greatest difference between successful achievers and those who are unsuccessful is how they handle their mindset: their doubts, fears, and limitations.
“Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” — Norman Vincent Peale
It is important that you recognise certain thoughts and behaviours that you hold around some actions and goals. This will help you identify what blocks you have so you may reduce or eliminate them.
Look out for negative thoughts like:
I can’t do that
I’m afraid to get up on stage
If I do that people will laugh at me
I don’t want to have a go
Even if I do get up and speak in front of people, I’ll just screw it up
I guess I’m just not good at anything
I can’t do anything right
Any of those limiting thoughts sound familiar?
