DECLARATION 6: "I create the exact level of my financial success."
According to Harv:
We have now reached Part II of T. Harv Ekers Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. He refers to them as the Wealth Files. You "need" files that support financial success. Harv says that you need to know how rich people think to become rich. You must be willing to let go of being "right." After all, it obviously hasn't worked! Would you rather be right or be rich? Harv teaches that rich people believe they establish their success in life. And poor people believe life happens to them. They may play the victim role with a "poor me" mentality. He states that poor people are good at blaming; blaming the economy, employer, stock market, parents, etc. Poor people also justify their poorness. Harv claims, "Anyone who says money isn't important doesn't have any." He says poor people complain, and they focus on it. Verywellmind.com suggests that positive thoughts may lead to positive results within a person's life, while negative thoughts may result in negative outcomes. It is based on the belief that thoughts are a form of energy and that positive energy may affect success in all areas of life, including health, finances, and relationships. Harv says that people with the victim mentality become a "crap magnet," and this negative energy is infectious. They get attention at the mercy of others. Harv's advice is to "take your power back!"
A Book in Time's Commentary:
Professionally: I can look back at my financial career and see that during times of wavering and negative vibes, I unknowingly hindered further levels of success. There was a direct correlation between my negative energy, undesirable effort, and even unnecessarily difficult results. It is within my ability to choose a focused uplifted mindset. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I am now in control of my level of success, and I know where I want to take it. This frame of mind has led me down exciting and fruitful paths I never imagined possible. Acknowledge your own capabilities and put forth a positive effort to achieve your desired successful endeavors.
Personally: While I do not like stereotyping people as "rich" or "poor," as Harv does, I understand his concept regarding some situations. I see the "tendency" but would not stereotype everyone into either one category or another. It is easy to allow the circumstances I encounter to weigh me down. It is harder to rise above the challenges and obstacles, which always seem eager to surface, with a negative demeanor. However, it is worth the extra effort to capture and suppress negative thoughts, discover what's good and helpful, and perceive every situation as an opportunity to learn, grow and advance.
Spiritually: I have been told by a very beloved friend to "put your praise on" as I would drift to feeling like a victim. Each time I change my mindset to focus on being grateful for all the amazing things there are to be thankful for, my spirit and energy are lifted. My mind and attitude are elevated; thus, my day is filled with positive energy that continues spreading to others.
