#4: Rewrite Your Story
Everyone has a narrative in their head, and it’s often TOXIC.
The story they have about themselves is usually littered with damaging and disempowering labels. And people don’t even realize half the time that they’re doing this.
Like we talked about in the last point, people hold on to experiences and events for years and years.
This creates a distorted truth about who they are – and they repeat it in their mind over and over. Here are some examples of what I mean:
– “That kid from high school was right …you’ll always be that awkward loser who can’t get it together. That’s why you’re stuck in the hole you’re in now.”
– “Do you know why your partner broke up with you? It’s because you’re insensitive and don’t care about anyone else but yourself. No wonder you’re alone now.”
– “Your dad always said you didn’t have the guts to pursue an actual career. He knows you’re not strong enough to stand on your own two feet, that’s why he’s always bailing you out.”
These stories and beliefs shouldn’t get a vote in your life anymore. The less you feed them, the less power they’ll have over you.
Remember, part of letting go of that negative baggage is acknowledging it first. Once you’ve come to terms with that story in your head, you can begin rewriting it.
That way, you can create the space in your mind for abundance to GROW.
#5: Reinforce Your Reality
Mindset is crucial, but so is ACTION. You can have the most empowering thoughts in your mind, but doing something about it is the other side of that coin.
More importantly, taking action will help those thoughts of prosperity grow even more. So when you start executing that vision based on your abundant thoughts, it creates a positive feedback loop that feeds on itself.
This is why it’s important to match every abundant thought with concrete action. This will REINFORCE the belief that gave birth to it in the first place.
Once you’ve set this cycle in motion, you can keep feeding it until it creates a ripple effect in your life. And even the smallest steps will ADD up and multiply exponentially.
Don’t ignore the little things you can do every day to support your mindset of prosperity.
Savor the small moments where you get to enjoy life’s abundance, then channel that positive energy into action.
Do the job that you have with passion and dedication, even if you’re thinking of resigning. Have brief but meaningful conversations with people, like the barista at your favorite coffee shop or even that co-worker you haven’t been that friendly with.
Looking at the bigger scheme of things, your positive actions put a particular kind of energy into the world.
And that energy will find its way back to you so you can keep doing the same thing, but on a bigger scale.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
In my experience, the BIGGEST challenge of getting into this positive cycle…
… is breaking out of a destructive one first.
That’s what I struggled with for the longest time in my life.
I know what’s like to get caught in a vortex of negative thinking and harmful actions. Abundance was the farthest thing on my mind.
The irony was that I was supposed to be this successful person with the perfect job and the ideal partner. That’s what everyone saw when they looked at me, at least.
What I felt inside was another story. I was trapped in the life that I made and burned out from having to put up appearances.
It all changed, however, when I took a different approach to The Law of Attraction.
I tried it a few times before, but couldn’t quite manifest the kind of abundance I wanted.
I was getting frustrated with getting limited results…
…until I discovered a small but powerful shift that made ALL the difference.
