Law of attraction, abundance thinking, positive thinking,
affirmations, manifesting… You’ve heard all these
words trying to sell you on the next best greatest
self improvement programs, but does any of this
stuff really work?
You’ve no doubt heard from a bunch of people teaching
you about creating abundance in your life. I’m sure that
you have to be wondering if any of this stuff works, or
if it’s just a misty hocus pocus way to get money out
Well, most of it does work – and for quite logical reasons.
Let’s take a look at a few of them.
If you change the way you think, you change your life.
This is absolutely true. No magic here.
If you think you can’t do something well, you won’t do
it well. If you think only bad things happen, you will
only notice bad things that happen – and usually create
more by your negative mood. People will be antagonized
by you. You’ll be more likely to have accidents just because
your thinking is clouded.
Now say you’re 50 years old, and you’ve been laid off
from your job. You can believe that you’re too old to
learn something new. You just accept that you will be
a greeter at Walmart until the day you die.
Now let’s say that you know you have had to file taxes
for the last 32 years, and you know a bit about taxes.
You’ve heard that there is a tax course in town, and
once you complete it you can do tax work for this
particular company. You think you could do that.
Or maybe you always wanted to write a book. And you
know that with all the available technology you could
self-publish, or write an e-book, or maybe even get
a publisher to accept your work.
Or maybe you can do free lance articles for magazines
in a certain area of interest for you. Maybe you know
a lot about bass fishing, or caring for aging parents,
or decorating with antiques, or selling at flea markets.
But what happens when you think you could do something,
but you know it would be a lot of work, and you don’t know
for sure that it will pan out. You sort of believe, but…
That’s where visioning and affirmations can help you out.
Visioning is where you practice seeing yourself doing
what you want to do, or living the way you want to live.
It’s a very important exercise to help you build your belief –
because as you saw, your belief can make or break you.
This is a simplistic overview. There is just not enough
room in a one page article to tell you all the ways to
use visioning techniques. Visioning is not just about
daydreaming and living in a fantasy world. It can be
used for planning and problem solving too.
Affirmations are sort of self coaching. Keep telling your-
self you will, and you will. Keep telling yourself you
can’t, and you won’t. You do affirmations everyday
without giving it much thought. Start being more
aware of what you tell yourself.
Is there magic? No, not really. The simple truth is,
the more you believe you can do something, the more
likely you are to take the actions to make it happen.
By using these techniques, you can build your belief.
As your belief grows, you’ll take more action and your
skills will grow. Once the ball starts rolling, the only
way to fail is to quit.
So think positive thoughts, picture yourself as
a true success, repeat your affirmations often,
take action everyday, and don’t quit. That’s
You are a Winner!

I am looking forward to The Whole Life Overhaul…
I love the 1 year plan and it’s like baby steps, but any real change takes time. New habits have to be developed. Also it is very affordable.
Can’t wait until Monday!!
Hmmmm.. I haven’t said that in a while! 🙂
I’ve been active in taxes for longer then I care to acknowledge, both on the private side (all my working lifetime!!) and from a legal standpoint since passing the bar and following up on tax law. I’ve supplied a lot of advice and corrected a lot of wrongs, and I must say that what you’ve posted makes perfect sense. Please persist in the good work – the more individuals know the better they’ll be armed to deal with the tax man, and that’s what it’s all about.
I get so easily distracted by the internet and great blogs like this. Experience the moment.
