5 Practices for Cultivating Prosperity
Few of us grew up in environments of prosperity and abundance. I certainly didn’t. And what I’ve learned over the years is that those of us who didn’t grow up in a near-constant state of prosperity have limiting beliefs around money and abundance. And we can break free from limiting situations when we can break free from their corresponding limiting beliefs.
Prosperity has to be cultivated. We have to work to create it in our lives…and the work that I’m talking about begins with changing our beliefs and focus.
In today’s episode I share five practices for cultivating prosperity in your life. Here we go…
- Be mindful of your thoughts, especially the automatic, negative ones. Remember that the unconscious mind brings into your experience only and exclusively the essence of your focus. Use our free resources to rewrite each negative thought and limiting belief. When you begin to focus on what you want, you’ll find that you have more of the essence of that thing in your life experience. Instead of focusing on what you don’t want, put your focus on what you do want…and see what happens.
- Be mindful of your words. Language doesn’t just label experience. Language determines experience.
- Practice appreciation and gratitude. Start with appreciating yourself and your journey. Find things to love and appreciate about where you are right now.
You have breath in your body — appreciate that!
Notice the beautiful things in the people around you — appreciate them.
Find beauty in the nature around you, in your habitat, in your comfy clothes…
Notice, appreciate, and be grateful.
- Focus on what’s going right. Notice what you do well, and celebrate the small wins. Practice making “feedback sandwiches,” where you recognize what you’re doing great, identify a small improvement that can be made, and end on another high note of praise. Keep a positive perspective by “sandwiching” what can be improved in between the good stuff.
- Create and prosperity mantras to rewrite negative beliefs and to train your unconscious mind to embrace abundance.
In the end, this really isn’t just about money. It’s about you living your life in the way that brings you the most fulfillment. Changing your beliefs and focus will take discipline and perseverance. And you and your life’s purpose are worth the effort.

Brenda: Hey there. Welcome to Episode 65 of the Mind Revolution Podcast. I am your host, Brenda Terry. A big, warm, thank-you to you for tuning in today. My wish for you, as always, is that wherever you are and whatever it is that you’re doing right now, that are you finding joy and that you are feeling wellbeing and you’re feeling happy and that you are stubbornly looking for the silver linings all around, because that’s what I’m doing. And I’m telling you that, even just a little bit of focus work of looking for the beauty in things…
Like last night, I was already in bed, and I’m going to bed pretty early these last few weeks because I am in deep creation mode. So I’m up early and getting on the computer super early, so I’m in bed at like 9:00 and sometimes it’s still light outside.
And yesterday Ron got me out of bed so I could go look at the moon because we had a beautiful moon, and we could see it from our backyard. And that’s what I call a silver lining. There is always beauty around. And even just a little bit of that… I was out there for five minutes with him, and I felt so full and was able to go to bed, and then I couldn’t go to sleep because I was just so excited because it was just so beautiful.
And I know it seems silly, right? This little thing that made all the difference in my evening.
And I know that, especially now, we’re going through so much. We’re still in it. There are some things that are changing for some people. Some of my clients got good news yesterday about their business, and now they’re going to get back to work and doing so in this whole new way, not the way she was doing her work before.
I had other clients who got not the news they were hoping for, but they’re still looking for those silver linings in the news that they got. So not the news that they expected in terms of being able to open their businesses but definitely seeing the opportunity for their growth and for their change as they are moving forward. So those are the silver linings I am referring to.
Today we’re going to talk about prosperity because I am creating a course about prosperity and abundance, so it just felt like I had to share this with you.
In prosperity, just so you know, it’s one of those things that, unless you’ve had it your whole entire life, unless you grew up in an environment where prosperity was the thing and it was abundant, and it was an automatic thing for you, then chances are that you’ve had to really work hard to get to a place where you can have prosperity and be abundant and have that be part of your experience.
If you grew up anything like me, meaning poor — like really poor — and struggled to survive — not thrive, survive — then having to make the shift to go from this very much scarcity environment to one where there was prosperity and abundance, well, that required a lot of work.
One thing that I’ve discovered along the way and in all the books that I’ve read and all the trainings that I’ve taken and all the coaching that I’ve received is that so much of this, unless it was something that was a constant in your life, prosperity is something that must be cultivated. It’s something that we have to work to create in our lives.
And I know I love thinking work, and I love belief work, and I love emotion work. And I talk a lot about taking action because action is the way that we’re going to get there. It’s the things that we do consistently. It’s that discipline and that perseverance. And I know they don’t sound exciting. Discipline and perseverance — that doesn’t sound exciting to me when I say it. But I’ve proven to myself enough that that is how we get there, because if you don’t have that discipline and perseverance to create the change, then you’re just simply stuck doing the same thing that you’ve always done. It’s very challenging for change to happen in a really positive way out of the blue. It’s very challenging for that to happen. Does it happen? For sure. However, is it common? No, it isn’t.
I remember when I met Ron because you know, if you listen to this podcast, how much I love that man. I remember when I met him. My family met him, and I promise you, he was the first person ever that my mom actually liked, that she actually thought, from a mom’s point of view, that he was good enough for me.
And I remember having a conversation with someone who said to me — and not just one person, a few people in my life, and mind you, my life back then was different than what it is now. The people that I spend time with, very different than the people that I spend time with today. And I was told how lucky I was for “landing” this man. “Landing him.” And how I was just one of those lucky people that happened to find this wonderful person. Lucky.
And I do feel like I was very fortunate to find someone that feels like a partner to me in all ways, someone who is, truly, when I say completes me, absolutely does. He brings into my experience this side that I don’t usually have access to on the daily because I love big ideas, and he is very detail-oriented, and I’ve learned a lot from his discipline. And I didn’t have a lot of that before.
I was told I was lucky to find him. Yes, I was.
However, I spent decades working on myself. I spent decade improving my life. I spent decades learning how to get better. And there was so much stumbling that happened along the way.
I tell my kids all the time, listen, please, please, please learn from my experience so you don’t go through my experience. Learn from the things that I did. Learn from the mistakes that I made so that you can have it a little bit easier.
Now, is it their job to have it easy and my job to make it easy for them? No, it’s not. But I love that I have the experience so that I can share it with them, to make it easier.
I say this to my clients all the time. I always tell them, listen, if you have an idea for a business, I really encourage to you come talk to me because if it’s something that is an idea, and you haven’t done any of the work for it, and it requires some sort of marketing effort or maybe it’s going to require some sort of sequence or a system, there is probably a good chance that I’ve at least dabbled in it. And maybe I could save you some time. And maybe I could save you some money. And maybe I can give you some ideas that you can run with, that you can model and make your own.
And that’s what today is all about.
I am so excited about this course because while it is about money, it’s not about money. It’s about prosperity and abundance. And it’s about stepping into that knowledge and that truth and really calling it a truth. And when I call things a truth, by the way, just so you know, my thinking behind that is that I know that we live in a world where we have opinions and perspectives. I call things “truth” because it’s much easier for your brain to take something as such.
So if you think of the brain as being kind of a binary animal, it will think yes-no, black-white, this-or-that. So if I call something a truth versus an opinion, it’s just easier for the neurology to accept once you hear it enough. So there’s that.
For me, now that I’m where I’m at, now that I’ve learned so much, and am still on your journey with you… I’m still on that journey because growth doesn’t stop. Transformation doesn’t stop. Evolution goes on. We’re not like a plant that at some point you decide it’s pretty enough, we’re done looking at its beauty, let’s just stop watering it and let it die off. No, we don’t do that. We continue to grow and evolve.
Prosperity is one of those things. It’s one of those things that needs to be cultivated. It really does, if you haven’t lived it. And it’s not about living it and assuming that you have had everything else.
So if you think about prosperity, when I talk about the money course, it is really about being able to be in receiving mode of all good things. That’s really what the course is about. It’s about opening ourselves up to receive goodness.
And money just happens to be one of those things that we consider to be goodness as we bring it into our life experience.
Now, I know as I say that, not all of us think money is good. There are beliefs out there that say that money is other than good. But here, I’m just letting you know that from the point of view of receiving, much easier for the neurology if you think that money is good because then it allows you to then be in the receiving of it, because the last time I checked, we are not sharecropping here. We need money in some form. Does it need to be green dollar bills or whatever currency you use in your country? No. Most of the time we’re doing it electronically. But still, it’s the representation of an exchange of energy that is really, really important in terms of us being able to receive it.
So today is all about cultivating the essence and the reality of prosperity and the things that you can do to begin doing that. Because all of this requires action. And action can be thought work. And action can be emotion work. And action can be you simply using your language in a specific way. All of that is action. Everything that you do is action. And that’s what we’re going to do.
So here we go.
Five beautiful practices for cultivating prosperity.
The very first practice is to be very mindful of your thoughts, especially those automatic negative thoughts. We talked about this in Episode 3. Automatic negative thoughts are just running rampant in the back of the mind and the brain, and we don’t even know that we are having them except that they make us feel not good. They make us feel the opposite of good, however that is — whether it’s an emotion of anger or sadness or hurt or guilt or whatever it is. Those thoughts — and a lot of the time they’re very fear-based thoughts that, when we’re thinking them, they’re creating experience for us. Because, if you remember, your unconscious mind has to bring into your experience only and exclusively the essence of your focus. And thought has everything to do with focus, and focus has everything to do with thought.
So being mindful of your thoughts and being mindful of your thinking has everything to do with being able to identify how you’re feeling in the moment.
I had a conversation with somebody this week, one of my clients, and she was not in a good place. She wasn’t in a good place because she was really thinking thoughts that were so disempowering for her. But they were not about her, by the way. These were not thoughts about her. These were thoughts about what’s happening in the world, how hard things are and how she’s being affected, and how the people that she cares about are being affected because of everything that’s going on.
And my invitation to her was let’s work on shifting the thinking because, at the end of the day, regardless of how other people are being affected, when you get on the path of thinking their problems for them, then you’re just simply bringing that into your awareness. The unconscious mind doesn’t process negatives directly, and it takes everything personally. So if it takes everything personally, whatever negative thoughts we’re thinking, we’re thinking it about us. Whether we’re thinking about somebody else in the moment, the unconscious mind doesn’t look at it like that. It really is taking it as a thought about self.
So when you’re thinking your thoughts, it’s really important to reframe them. And how you reframe a thought — we actually have a free resource for Episode 3 that tells you exactly how to do that. So go and download that. It’s really important to notice what it is that you’re feeling and then take a moment to identify where the feeling came from, what thought were you thinking, or what are you experiencing, or what are you seeing that is creating these thoughts inside that are leading you to feel these feelings. And then begin to make the change from there.
It’s really simple to simply ask yourself, “Hey, this is not the thing that I want to be thinking right now. What is it that I do want to be thinking right now?” And then begin to think thoughts in that direction.
And if you’ll remember from Episode 3, we talk about how science tells us that the cognitive weight of a negative thought is about five times the cognitive weight of a positive thought, meaning that in order to bring yourself to balance, you’ve got to have at least five positive thoughts in order to feel a little bit better to that one negative thought. And if you want to feel really good, then you’ve got to milk it and go for ten or more until you feel really good.
Because feeling good here is really powerful. The feeling good is what allows you to bring into your experience more of those good-feeling thoughts which then lead to a good-feeling experience.
So if you’re thinking thoughts about prosperity or abundance or money or the bills that are not making you feel good, then all you have to do is imagine what it is that you want to be thinking instead, and think that way.
I talked to another client, and we had a conversation about the things that she was watching and the things that she was consuming. She was getting lost in YouTube with all these things, none of which were serving her. And then she said, “Well, maybe that’s why I’ve been feeling so bad. I’ve been watching so many ugly things.” And the things on social media also. Right? There’s all kinds of stuff going on out there, and you have, basically, for the most part, it’s very divisive.
On one side, you have a viewpoint, and then on the other side, you have an opposing viewpoint, and both viewpoints are kind of fighting with each other.
Well, I’ve got to tell you that I am so fortunate to be in a field where I get clients that are in both camps, and I get to hear both viewpoints. And I’ve got to tell you that when they are done speaking their viewpoints and we get into what they want, just about everybody wants the same thing. We all want our lives back somehow. We want our lives back.
But the thinking that each other are not this or not that or they’re too much of this or too much of the other and really pointing the fingers, that immediately puts us at effect.
And at effect means, listen, you’re doing something to me. Your actions are causing me to have this problem, and if you could just do this differently, then I could feel better. Well, that’s not going to solve anything for you. What’s going to solve it for you is for you to begin to think about the things that you want to experience and then focus exclusively on that, regardless of what’s going on.
And I know that that’s really hard. I know that it’s hard. I know what I’m asking you to do, but your wellbeing is worth it. There’s no reason to join the groups that are telling you that everything is going wrong. There’s no purpose for that. It doesn’t help you.
I would rather you join the people who are doing something to make a difference from the point of view of respecting all of us, from a point of view of knowing that, at the end of the day, we are having a collective human experience and that we can learn from each other in one way or another. Or even if you don’t want to learn from anybody else, that you simply take action that’s going to serve you here and now, that’s going to help you feel good now, that’s going to help you stay focused on you cultivating the prosperity that you want for yourself.
That’s the first one.
The second one is to be really mindful of your words. Be really mindful of your language. In NLP, we say that language doesn’t just label experience. Language determines experience.
What I tell my clients all the time, it’s the very same thing. I don’t care about your point of view. I really don’t. What I care about is that you’re really happy. What I care about is that you’re getting what you want. What I care about is that you are more congruent today than you were yesterday, that you are behaving in a way that aligns with your goals more so today than you were yesterday.
I care about your forward progress. It doesn’t matter to me what you think or what you believe. It really doesn’t because that’s not my job. My job is to love you and support you in the process of you achieving the things that you want.
But language will be the death of all of us in terms of our results. Language determines outcomes because with the words that we’re thinking… You’ve got to think about this. The words that we’re thinking then becomes language, which means that we’re processing them a long time before they leave our mouths. We are thinking things so quickly.
If you think of all the thousands and thousands and thousands of thoughts we have a day, we’re languaging all day long. We’re using language constantly. And when we start repeating language, especially when we’re pushing against anything or anyone — again your unconscious mind doesn’t think you’re pushing against those guys. Your unconscious mind thinks you’re talking about you.
And if, in your languaging, you’re really good at noticing the things that are going wrong in your experience and you’re talking about them and you’re thinking about them, then you’re giving your unconscious mind very few options to create an experience for you that’s going to satisfy you.
The language is critical. Toward language simply speaks to the things that you want to have. Away-from language speaks to the things that you want to avoid. And it’s almost like justifying the reasons that you want to have the thing that you want to have. And I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to justify the things that you want. You can just want them. You can just want them.
There’s nobody here to judge your wants. You don’t have to explain them away.
And I know that maybe in your environment, in your experience, you may feel like you’re being judged by other people for wanting the things that you want. In that case, then I ask you to go to the very first practice, and that is to begin noticing your thoughts, because we can only experience that which we’re consistently thinking. So maybe not the exact thought — we’re not going to experience exactly what we’re thinking, but we’re certainly going to experience the essence of that thought.
And this is how belief systems become belief systems.
I had a conversation with a client, and he was a little upset. He’s better now. But he was a little upset because he came into the workspace talking a lot about how he was so pressed for time, and time was just not available to him, and he just simply did not have time for all the things that he wanted to do and didn’t even have time to do the things that he had the do.
And so what I proposed to him is that we do some work around the beliefs that he had around time. I told him, “What if you believed that time was infinite instead of finite? What if you believed that you could manipulate the way that you experience time? What if you just believe that?” We’re living the essence of beliefs. We’re living our beliefs. So what if you believed something different about time?
Initially, he didn’t want to do the work, and then when we did the work — we just did one little thing — then his experience of time changed. And all of that has to do with language because you’ve got to think the thought that you’re thinking is made up of words. And you repeat the thought enough, then all of a sudden, you create a belief around it. And the way the brain works is that it will establish the belief, and then it will immediately go look for evidence of that belief. It’s not like the evidence of the belief is what creates the belief. It’s really the other way around. It’s that the belief is in place first, and then the brain goes out and looks for evidence. And it’s all language.
So if you think about your experience, whatever it is that you’re living right now is a direct result of your beliefs, which are a direct result of thoughts, which are a direct result of language. So if you can be mindful of your language and really focus on using that toward, positive language, not because I want you to have this Pollyanna-ish experience but because I want you to get the things that you want in your life. I want you to get those results.
And you don’t have to believe me that this works. You really don’t. All I’m asking you is to try it because I’m telling you that you’re worth the effort. So you try it, you practice it, and then you check in with yourself to see how you’re doing, and you’ll be surprised.
I see this every day, not only in my client work, but I see it with myself because remember that I’m doing the work along with you.
I see it in myself that maybe I have a thought that I don’t like, or maybe I have a belief that I don’t like. And then I do the work around the belief. And, like I’ve said before, belief work is hard work because you’re going in there to change what’s existing in the body, what’s been keeping you going all these years. So to go in there and make that change, that takes some effort.
But then you do the effort long enough and the effort then becomes now part of who you are. And all of a sudden, the belief system changes, and maybe it doesn’t happen all of a sudden, but then one day you realize how far you’ve come. And that’s the result of this work.
It isn’t about feeling good for the sake of feeling good. It’s about learning to feel good and think different thoughts and use different language for the ultimate purpose of living you, living the best version of you, living your purpose, having the meaning that you want in your life and experiencing that in the moment, that moment-to-moment experience.
Now the third thing that you do is that you practice appreciation and gratitude. I know we hear this all the time, but you know what? There’s a huge difference between saying something and doing something.
I had another conversation with someone who, as we were talking, she was saying that she was doing her tasking, and she wasn’t, but she was doing her best. And one of the things that we talked about was the language that she was using.
What I said to her is, “Listen, this is where I just want to give you this little coaching nugget,” because we were not having a coaching conversation. We were just having a regular conversation. I said, “Really be mindful of the things that you’re saying about the people around you because, in the end, you know that perception is projection, meaning that if you’re seeing it in them, it means that something inside of you is maybe off-kilter in the moment. Maybe somewhere you feel off balance. So maybe use this as an opportunity to check in.”
Her words to me were like “No, I always practice patience and gratitude and appreciation. I always do.”
It’s like “Well, the things that you just said didn’t sounds like patience and appreciation and gratitude.” So it’s really easy to say it. It was really easy for her to miss.
And then she caught it, and she was like “You are so right.”
I don’t like to hear that I’m right, but in this case, I certainly was on point because I heard it from here.
So there we were. I said, “I heard it from you, so I’m wondering where am I not being myself appreciative and grateful and seeing the beauty in the world.” So I did my own little digging. And usually it’s little digging. It’s not like you’re going into the abyss. It’s just in the moment. Like in this moment, my focus is not where I want it to be. Really simple stuff.
But appreciation is huge because in the moment that you are appreciating and being grateful and loving the world and loving your space and loving the people in your home, loving your pets and the sweater that you have on, in that moment, you’ve got to think of your unconscious mind. It doesn’t know the difference between you appreciating a penny or a million dollars. It doesn’t know that. It appreciates the essence of the appreciation. Right? That’s what it gets. That’s what it understands.
So if you want to have the abundance in your life experience and that prosperity and then cultivating it, appreciating where you are is really important.
I had another conversation with someone about her and the change in her relationship, which, I have this conversation so many times with people because most of the people that I work with are in relationships. And in here, they’re doing the work, and they’re feeling like they have grown so mean, and they’re looking at the partner and seeing that their partner is not on this journey with them. And some of them, like I did, I remember when I went to my trainings, and you had the people in there thinking, “Oh my gosh, I just know so much now. How am I going to be able to stay with my husband or wife?”
And then the work really comes full circle when, if we’re growing and evolving, then we know that the people in our lives are just simply our projection. That’s all that is. They are our unconscious mind walking around letting us know how we’re doing.
And in that, there’s a lot of love. There’s a lot of appreciation that can happen.
I had this client who said, “I don’t know what’s going to happen to my relationship. How do I best get out of this relationship? What’s the best thing that I can do?”
I said, “Well, it’s important to trust that you’ll know when that time comes for you to make the decision to stay or to go, but in the meantime, you bet you that there’s a long list of things that you can write and focus on about this person that are wonderful and beautiful, and they’re exactly the things that you want for yourself in a partnership.” So start doing that work.
And the purpose of doing that work is not to sweep under the rug a problem in a relationship. The purpose of the work, it’s because in doing that work and noticing the thing that you want instead of the thing that you don’t want, then it allows you to then create more of what you want. It’s really simple stuff, and it really ties into what the essence of what this moment right here and the power of it in terms of dictating what the next moment is going to be like. So appreciating this moment, appreciating the little or a lot that you have right now is a key piece in training your unconscious mind to have positive expectation. That’s the beauty of it.
If you’re walking around looking at somebody or something and seeing how bad it is, how wrong it is, how it needs to be different, you’re not doing anything to those other people or those other things, but you’re bringing into your experience the essence of the thing that you’re pushing against.
So appreciating the moment, appreciating the experience, appreciating yourself, who you are, your beauty, your goodness, all of you in the moment is power. And appreciating you is really the best place to start. And usually the hardest.
It’s really hard to look in the mirror and be “Oh, I love all of me, even though I wanted to lose 40 pounds.” Or, “I love all of me, even though when I was 20 years old, I looked this way or that way.” I’m not saying I do that. Sometimes maybe. No, actually I don’t do that anymore.
But it’s about appreciating what you have now. And stop longing for the thing that could have been, because that’s not here right now. But you appreciating what you have right now can get you closer to a better version of what was once in the past.
And this leads to number four, which is just focus on what’s going right. Focus on the things that you’re doing well, and improve in the things that need to be improved upon from the point of view of progress. It’s not like a slap on the hand for doing something bad or doing something wrong, but it’s a pat on the back for saying, “Hey, good job. Good try. Now, how do we get this to be even better now?”
There is something called the feedback sandwich in NLP. My clients know it because we talk about feedback sandwich often. And that is simply this is what you did great, good for you. This is what needs improvement. Little tiny thing. And finishing off with a big, “Listen, you are amazing. You did a wonderful job.” It’s really each for the unconscious mind to accept the suggestion for the change when you’re giving it in feedback sandwich. So really being appreciative of the progress that you’re making, focusing on the things that are going well, really focusing on it so that you can then create the neurology that supports things going well for you. It’s really simple.
To me, it feels like math. One plus one equals two. If you focus on what’s going well, you’re giving your neurology — your conscious mind, your unconscious mind — the tools to be able to create an experience that matches. It’s all there and available for you.
And don’t get me wrong. I received an email this morning from somebody who says, “Well, I think that your life is really easy, and I think that what you’re doing doesn’t help me.”
This is somebody who probably doesn’t know my story, that I know what it’s like to struggle. I know what it’s like to really be in deep suffering and what it’s like to come out on the other side of that. And how, in doing this work, my work is to share with you ways that you can do this for yourself.
With that said, words are super cheap, really easy to say the words, really difficult to do the action. Because I have things that I want to work on for myself. There are things on my to-do list for my self-improvement. And I struggle with them from time to time as well. And I struggle with some things constantly. But I chip away at them consistently. And you’ve got to start where you’re at. You’ve got to start where you’re at.
So I emailed this person back, and I said that this is all about starting the journey, and you can only start from where you’re at. It’s not about you starting from where I’m at. I have spent a good solid 30-some-odd years on this journey to be able to get to this place, and it’s been constant, hard work. It’s been constant discipline. Even in the times when I totally — they call it what? — falling off the wagon. I don’t understand the metaphor or the analogy, but I got off track and came back. And sometimes getting off track was a long way off track and having to come back to do it again was challenging. But at the end of the day, this is what leads to cultivating that prosperity.
Because at the end of the day, I want you to have the money in your hand that you want for the things that you want to achieve. And then when you have it, you’re going to know and learn that at the end of the day, it wasn’t about the money. That it’s about all the things that you had to learn in your mind and in your heart to achieve the things that you want. And when you do that, the money just shows up.
You live your purpose. You do your thing. You do you to the best of your ability, and then the money comes. But it’s really easy to say that after going through that journey.
When I had $20 in your money and I was so happy that I found $20 in my pocket at the grocery, I remember texting my mom, or calling her. I don’t know if we had text back then a long time ago. I remember the thrill because I could barely buy groceries. I could barely afford to feed my kids. Single mom in the downturn, suffering. So I know what it’s like to get out from underneath all of that.
It starts with where you’re at right now, but it only starts when you begin focusing on the things that are working out for you. When you focus on the fact that you have breath in your body, the fact that you have people in your life that love you. And sometimes that support is there, and we push it away. We do that.
I can tell you so many times when I’ve even had, even with Ron supporting me in things about my work or things with my family, and I have pushed that away.
Now a little growth later, and I can look back and say, “Ugh, I’m sorry about that. You were there for me, and I didn’t notice, and I didn’t appreciate it. And I only saw what was going wrong and not all the way that life was working out for me.”
The last thing for you to do, it’s a fun one. That is to create prosperity mantras for you.
The way that you do this is that you take a belief that you want to adopt, and then you repeat it over and over again.
The thing about beliefs is this. If you want to adopt a belief about prosperity that is for you, then you want to make it really positive and using towards language. Really simple one. “I plenty of everything for all the things that I want to do.” For example, something like “I have all the resources I need to do all the things I want to do, when I want to do them, how I want to do them.” That’s a great mantra. You just simply have everything you need.
Does it really need to be money? No. It just needs to be resources. Really powerful.
“Prosperity and abundance are my birthright.” That’s a good one. That’s an absolute. “Prosperity and abundance are my birthright.”
Or something like “Money comes easily and frequently whenever I need it, however I it, exactly in the amount that I need it.”
Or, “As money good out, it comes back in in twice the amount.” Really simple stuff. You’ve got to want to reframe the beliefs that you already have about money in order to create these mantras.
And this is something that is really powerful because, remember the only reason that you have the beliefs that you have about prosperity and the only reasons that you have the thoughts that you have about money or abundance or prosperity, it’s because there is evidence in your experience that really prove those beliefs and thoughts to you. Because, for whatever reasons, at some point, you saw something, made some association, created a belief, and then the brain was out hunting for evidence for that belief. And that’s what ended up in your experience.
And the only way to turn that around is to begin to train your brain to have a different experience. And the repetition of the work is really powerful. So the repetition of the adopted belief in making it into a mantra makes it easier for the unconscious mind to take in.
That is all I have for you today. I know that you can cultivate your own prosperity. I know that you can. I know that you can. I just know it. It’s just a matter of you shifting focus and then beginning to do the work. And you’ve got to start where you’re at right now. This is a great place to start. This is a great time to start. And I want you to be in charge of your life. I want you to be in charge of your results. And you can do it.
