“The moment you concentrate the focus of your mind on a singular purpose, extraordinary gifts will appear within your life.”
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari – Robin S. Sharma
I’m reading a couple of really great books at the moment and there is a common theme that is coming through both of them. If you seek abundance in life, it starts on the inside, and with your mind.
I have known for a while that your thoughts create your reality, and what you think, you become. This is why, I now know that it is so very important to think positive thoughts and focus on the things that you would like to have happen in your life, rather than thinking in the opposite way.
In T. Harv Eker’s book ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind – Think Rich to Get Rich‘ he talks about the fact that ‘your inner world reflects your outer world’ and ‘what you focus on expands’. And therefore if you want to get rich you need to focus on making, keeping and investing your money. If you place daily attention on your objective of becoming financially abundant and free, it is much easier for the Universe to help you achieve this. Of course, there are lots of other things that need to be in place for your to be able to manifest money, one important piece of the puzzle is being able to receive. However, it remains that if you want an abundant life, you need to have an abundant mind and abundant thoughts.
This sentiment is echoed in ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ by Robin S. Sharma, another fantastic book that I’m reading at the moment. In the story, a character called Julian Mantel (a lawyer forced to confront the spiritual crisis of his out-of-balance-life) shares the wisdom and lessons that he has learnt from spending time with a group of Sages in the Himalayas.
He talks about how ‘mind management is the essence of life management’ and that ‘the way you think stems from habit.’ He explains that ‘most people don’t realise the enormous power of their minds’ and that ‘your mind is nature’s greatest gift.’
He goes on to say that ‘mental mastery comes through conditioning and when you dedicate yourself to transforming your inner world, your life quickly shifts from the ordinary to the extra-ordinary.’
And this is something I am definitely experiencing in my life at the moment. The more control I am gaining over my conscious mind, the more I’m connecting with my intuition, the more I’m learning to turn the volume down on any negative thoughts or feelings and replace them with those that are positive, optimistic and helpful, the more amazing things are happening to me in my life.
The biggest project that I have on my plate at the moment is a trip to LA at the beginning of August. I have no idea why, but the feeling of needing to go to LA has been coming to me for a few weeks now. I recently started to take action and put my feelers out to friends who have connections there and live there, and I’m getting a lot of positive feedback that I should go. So, despite the fact that at this stage I’m not entirely sure why I’m going, what will happen when I’m there, where I will be staying, where I will find the money for the flight. One thing I know is certain, I will be in LA between 5th and 15th August, to talk to people about my company Thought Cloud and the book I’m writing at the moment on Conscious Branding (A Brand New World – 25 ways conscious brands are changing the world for good).
And I’m trusting that the Universe will help and support me along the way and give me all of the things, people and resources I will need to make the trip a success.
And so on that note, what would you like to create in your life to make it more abundant? And what beliefs might you need to let go of, or flip on their heads in order to think more abundantly? After all, an abundant mind = an abundant life. What we think we become.
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
