First of all, concepts like ‘prosperity’ and ‘abundance’ are really non-specific and they don’t draw out any resistance we might have to going after a specific money goals.
More importantly, when you say words like, “I'm so grateful that I’ve manifested a million dollars by the end of this year” but you don’t really believe it, you actually align yourself more strongly to the...
Is Manifestation a real thing or is it just luck?
There seems to be two schools of thought on manifestation.
Those who swear by it - and those who think its spiritual fluff.
As a money mindset coach, people assume I'm in the first camp.
But I agree with both perspectives.
You see, the problem is that people who claim to 'manifest' things, tend to only say that when good things happen.
They have no explanation for the times things don't work out.
And they usually can't teach the process to anyone.
This is what I call Magical Manifesting - basically nothing more than wishing and hoping.
Like the time I printed out the picture of the $1M cheque from The Secret and stuck it up on my wall... and nothing happened.
I felt like an idiot for doing it but I didn't give up on the concept of manifestation.
Because lots of big things have come to me over the years that seemed like more than random coincidences.
Things like the prestigious business scholarship I got at the end of high...
It’s impossible to get a high paying job during COVID. Everyone knows that.
Except two of my clients just landed $200k+ jobs.
Let’s start with ‘Rob’ (not his real name - he’s a high-profile executive and wants to remain anonymous).
Rob left his last exec role 18 months ago. Now you’d think it would be easy for a high level boss to walk into another well paying job - but it’s often not.
You see, there just aren’t that many exec roles around at any one time.
And the recruitment process is usually a formality because they already know who they want. These types of jobs aren’t generally advertised on online job boards either.
Rob would sit for months and get zero calls from recruiters.
And for the roles Rob did apply for, he got rejected every time. With each knock-back, his confidence took a further hit, until one day he knew he had a problem he couldn't fix on his own.
Rob had progressed to the fourth interview stage for a...
Manifesting is not about dreaming and wishful thinking. It’s about aligning yourself with the energy of effective action-taking that makes dreams come true. When you're authentically aligned to that energy, you won’t need to motivate yourself to take action towards your goals. It just happens.
Magical Manifestors vs. Masterful Manifestors
Magical Manifestors falsely believe that manifestation is all about visualizing and positive thinking. They devote excessive amounts of time to making vision boards and writing affirmations, waiting for their dreams to drop into their laps.
Masterful Manifestors know that it takes more than wishful thinking to make your dreams come true. It takes solid and consistent action.
You can spot a magical manifestor a mile away because they never seem to hit their goals. And here’s why:
If the Magical Manifestors were truly committed to their goals, their energy would move them into this action. Instead, what they’re really...
The best symbol of the mind is an iceberg. If you want to change where the visible part of your life moves, you’ve got to look at what’s happening in what’s hidden below the surface.
Your Mind Is Not Your Brain
Your mind is your entire operating system, including your thoughts, your feelings, your actions, your habits. It's everything about how you operate, including your body that physically carries out the instructions given by the conscious or subconscious mind.
The Iceberg Metaphor
What we can see of the iceberg above the surface of the water is actually misleading in comparison to the size of the whole thing. As you can see from this image, there is a pristine formation on the top, while what’s hidden underneath is an absolutely massive formation that is kind of doing its own thing.
This is exactly how your mind works. Let’s look at the two parts:
Your Conscious Mind
The top part of the...
Affirmations can play an important role in attracting more wealth and abundance IF they're used correctly! Unfortunately, in many cases, affirmations don't really work - and the reason has to do with the level of faith we put into them.
Do you really believe your affirmations? That's the question you really need to answer.
There are several ways to test your level of belief around your affirmations. One exercise you can try is to rate yourself out of 10 on a series of affirmations to see whether you actually believe them. The process for doing this would be:
For each affirmation, a low score would indicate that you carry some resistance towards achieving your own goals. This may also lead you to make incorrect assumptions - for example, that you aren’t meant...
In this article, I'm going to share 10 powerful affirmations that you can use to attract more wealth and abundance.
I will call out from the outset that this isn't your typical feel-good affirmations post. I'm actually going to give you these affirmations, but with a very specific purpose and it's probably not what you think.
So first up, I thought I would actually explain what an affirmation is because not everyone might be familiar with the term. So, let's start with the official definition of an affirmation from the dictionary: an affirmation is to affirm that something is true.
Now there's a big problem here. Straight away, alarm bells went off and I just remembered my English teacher saying, "You can't use the word you're trying to define in the definition." So, that kind of breaks that rule and is not overly helpful if you don't know what an affirmation is.
So another way I can explain what an affirmation is, is that it's like stating a declaration - and stating that you...
This article is part of the Money Mindset series where I've been talking about your relationship with money, and in particular around the six types of money.
So far we've covered savings, debt, and today we're going to talk about income.
When it comes to income, I like to dive right in because this one is best tackled on a practical level.
Take a few seconds to think about your income. How much do you earn? When do you get paid? Is it monthly? Or every other week?
We typically refer to income from a job, but it can also be from your business.
What I want you to do is to think about your income, it doesn't have to be exact, just something close. Visualise that number. Picture when that money comes in, when it hits your bank account, try to see that figure.
What I want you to take note of is whether any feelings are coming up around the visualisation of that amount of money.
The reason I'm asking you to do that is when it comes to income, particularly if it is a salary...
