Are you wondering why you’re not succeeding? Are you concerned that you may never achieve success, or that you may never live the life of your dreams?
Have you tried to visualize, or meditate, or to see yourself as wealthy, and yet you’re not making any progress towards wealth?
If this is you, then I wrote this article for you, so let’s get right to it…. There are many people who have “grand” visions of themselves (as they should), but they are unable to realize those visions, and the reason they are unable to realize those visions, is for the simple reason that the visions are too large for them.
They can’t see themselves going from “broke” today, to a multi-millionaire tomorrow, …but that’s okay. I said “that’s okay,” because you need not attempt such a great leap of faith in such a short amount of time.
You see, when you’re trying to believe that you’re going to be a “millionaire,” when you’re currently ”broke,” you may create disbelief instead of belief. You may create fear, when what you really need is faith, and in stretching your faith too thin it collapses moving you further away from your dream.
The secret is in starting small! You need not conquer the world today. It’s imperative that you keep your visualizations believable. So don’t try to see yourself as a millionaire today, if you’re not ready for it; your mental incongruence will only push the realization of your vision further away. If you’re trying to lose weight, maybe your next step isn’t to see yourself at 110 pounds; maybe your next step is to see yourself not eating that next brownie (as an example), maybe it’s seeing yourself just 5 pounds less. But I digress…
Today I want to talk about the steps that you need to take in order to create wealth. I want to talk about the small steps that will eventually lead to the “big” results.
Below I’ve listed the six steps that are requisite to manifesting wealth.
Six Steps to Manifesting Wealth
1. See Yourself as an Expert
If you’re ever going to create wealth, you’re going to have to become an expert at something! What is your expertise? Why should people be paying you? You will only be paid in this lifetime for the value you provide to others. The greater your expertise, the greater will be your potential to provide value to others.
That’s why everyday you should work to become more valuable. You must ”see” yourself as valuable. Everyday you must say to yourself, “I am valuable, and ‘this’ (whatever ‘this’ is) is the value that I provide to others; it’s a value they can get from nowhere else. I am an expert, I am valuable.” Say it until you believe it; say it until it’s true.
2. Become an Expert
Well it’s not enough to just say it, or see it, you must be it. Whatever you love, whatever your passion, make it your expertise. Study it, know it, know it better than anyone else, and then create the results to back up what you know. When you become the expert, you will attract people who are interested in your expertise.
Before you ever even think of creating wealth, you must first think of how you can “genuinely” provide value to others; you must get clear on how your expertise can impact the lives of others.
3. See Yourself Helping the Masses
Before I started this site, I wondered if I could provide value to others, I wondered if someone wanted to hear what I had to say.
I began to tell myself that I’m a great writer (maybe not grammatically, but in getting my point across). I told myself this until I believed it. I got to the point where I believed that I had something valuable to share.
Do you believe in your expertise, can you see yourself helping the masses? Can you see people knocking on your door for your wisdom, your knowledge, your understanding, the understanding that has come from years of labor and toil.
4. Help the Masses
Once again, it’s not enough to just see it, you must do it! It’s one thing to have a plan, its one thing to be clear about that plan; it’s something totally different to execute the plan. Failure to execute is the number one reason people fail: Failure to execute what they know to do….
You must help the masses! The more people you help, the more wealth you can create. It’s that simple, people who are providing value to a lot of people are reaping the rewards of their labor. People who are only providing value to a few, are also reaping the rewards of their labor. To the degree that you give to others is to the degree that you will receive! How many people are you helping?
5. See Yourself Wealthy
If you can’t see it, you can’t have it. If you can’t imagine it in your head, you will never hold it in your hand. But before you start imagining yourself as rich… you must first imagine yourself as the expert.
Don’t try to jump to “Step 5,” when you haven’t mastered “Step 1.” You’re not ready for “Step 5” until you pass “Step 1.” It’s a progression, you see yourself as an expert first, then one day, you see yourself helping the masses, then one day, you actually help the masses, and eventually you’ll begin to see how you can become wealthy. It won’t just be a dream, you will know that wealth is about to become your reality.
6. Manifest Wealth
Once you’re providing your expertise to the masses, once your demand has gone up, you will be able to “see” how you can easily manifest wealth, as the Scripture hath declared, “a laborer is worthy of his hire.”
When you’ve put in the time to serve others, not from a selfish heart, but from a giving heart, you open the door to receive. You open the door of yourself and you see that all that you really needed, all the money, all the talents, all the patience, everything you needed was already on the inside of you, and it was waiting to be manifest. You see that you were born fully equipped on the inside to succeed; it was just a matter of you waking up to your true potential!
And so those are the keys to manifesting your desires, will you lay hold to them, will you turn them into your reality? If you do, your life will never, ever, ever, be the same.
