You Think You Want More Money
Here’s an excerpt from my first book: The Voice Inside Your Head: How to use your mind to instantly create financial security & attract more money.
Although you say you want $1,000,000, I’m about to burst your bubble. You don’t really want money. In fact you could care less if you have money or not. What you really want is to experience peace and the financial security and freedom that you believe comes with seeing six zeros in your bank account.
To put that bold statement to the test, I invite you to imagine that you have $1,000,000 in your bank account right now. All of your prayers, dreams, and intentions have come to fruition and you are the proud owner of six zeros. How does it feel? Really imagine how it feels. I bet it feels a lot better than you may feel right now. It’s exciting, exhilarating, and gives a sense of peace and accomplishment.
But guess what. The US dollar has just been devalued. Some freak event of economic nature just occurred and the US dollar now is worthless. The value of your $1,000,000 bank account is now worth $0. You can’t even buy a cup of coffee with your six-zero bank account. How do you feel now? I bet your heart is racing, your shoulders are tense, and all of your peace of financial security has evaporated back into the world of the impossible.
You’re back where you started. You’re scared that you don’t have enough money to make it to the end of the month, frightened to pursue your dream career because you might not make enough money to survive, and feeling an intensely draining sensation of constantly being in survival mode and counting your pennies.
What just happened? In your bank account you still have exactly what you wished for. You still are the proud owner of $1,000,000. Why don’t you feel the way you expected anymore?
The answer is that it’s not the $1,000,000 that you wanted. Your heart desires the peace that you believe has a $1,000,000 price tag.
