“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” Lao Tzu
Been feeling stuck lately? Frustrated with your finances? Not loving your life?
Listen up. The solution is deceptively simple, yet undeniably life changing…guaranteed.
Stop telling your old story.
If you do only this one thing, you’ll rewire your brain and revolutionize your relationship to money—and everything else, for that matter—within months.
Here’s how it works. Start by observing the words that come out your mouth.
Do those words describe your life as it’s been, your flaws, or your fears?
Stop right there and instead talk about the life you desire to create, who you want to be, how you’d love to feel.
Granted this takes considerable vigilance and determination…and may feel awkward, even phony, at first. I said the solution was simple, but it’s far from easy.
Yet every time you share your future aspirations (rather than retell your familiar reality), you literally weaken the old dysfunctional neuropathways and strengthen new, more desirable ones.
Or as A Course in Miracles explains: “What you share you strengthen.”
Here’s a true story that illustrates the incredible power of your words.
Phil Hellmuth is a professional poker player who’s won a record 14 World Series of Poker. But before that, he suffered an 8 year losing streak. No matter what he did, his bad luck wasn’t budging.
Then one day he changed a few words he regularly used and his life turned around.
He altered his email address from “trying to be the greatest” to “being the greatest” . To date he’s won over $22million.
No surprise, he recently told a Wall Street Journal reporter: “I’m a big believe in the power of the word.”
So am I. Are you? I’d love to hear examples of how this has worked in your life?
