Mind Over Money

One of the great challenges in my life has been my thoughts around money. I was (<–past tense) brought up with idea of lack. Never enough. I watch my mom hide the bills as she struggled (<–learned this to) to raise three boys. As I worked toward learning more about NLP and how it can help change beliefs by changing values it dawned on me that maybe I should see where I’m at now with my ideas on money.

You see, I really made some bad decisions when it came to money AND I would get frustrated after the fact and promised I was going to change. And then, the next bad decision. I hated the way I felt but for the life of me I couldn’t seem to make the changes I wanted quick enough. Oh yeah, that was another belief I picked up….”It takes a long time to change.”

So, that is exactly what happened to me. I ruined my credit at 19 and wasn’t able to get my first real credit card until I was almost 29. Yeah, If I wanted something I had to come up with the cash. Now some of you may be thinking that paying cash is awesome and I agree. However, at the time I was getting the learnings of why. I was focused on build my credit so I could be like everyone else. <– More bad beliefs: 1. Thinking that if I have credit I am successful (there was a lot of baggage with that one…lol); 2. Be like everyone else will make me feel better (ouch!).

Now that I have a greater understanding of my beliefs and the workings of NLP, I wish I knew this when I was 20. You see, with NLP we can work with ones values which then in turn change all the beliefs around those values. Instead of what I was doing was trying to figure out all my beliefs and change one at a time by affirmations, journaling, praying and paying attention to all the little things through out the day. Now, I am not saying that was or is bad. I just now know there are other more quicker ways to change what goes on in our heads and unconscious minds and would that be better in the long run if in the short run we could actually make the changes now?

So, for those of you who are like I was and want to take the long road, I came across this program that is really good and wanted to share it with you. It works over 30 days and I am going to post each days exercise for you with some commentary on my part.

In addition, here is the link to download the pdf version of this program. If you decide you don’t want to wait 30 days to change, give us call here and we can show you some techniques around changing values that are very very powerful and will help you get the results you want!

To your ultimate success,

Paul
