Today I’d like to give you one million dollars.
If you happened to read my last post about How To Think Yourself Rich then this may not come as a complete surprise. If you haven’t had a chance to read that post I’ll sum it up here:
At least three wealth creation books I’ve enjoyed reading (Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles and The Little Money Bible by Stuart Wilde) share a common notion, namely how the subconscious mind is constantly influencing, shaping and creating our ‘reality’. And, when it comes to making more cash, visualizations, affirmations and positive expectation all contribute greatly towards manifesting money through informing the subconscious.
Another idea which seems to me to run through these, and most other, ‘self-help’ books is the idea that we should focus on what we GIVE—be it a service, knowledge or a product—rather than simply on what we WANT. Since I’m on a bit of a self-reinvention kick at the moment I’ve been asking myself a question lately:
“How can I give more?”
As a writer I always put everything into whatever I write. Sometimes I may draft songs, blog posts or even novels with a certain ‘light’ touch but I always put my heart into what I write—at every stage. So maybe giving more for me simply means writing more?
In that case I just need to watch even less television (which shouldn’t be hard: the idiot box seems more idiot than ever lately) and get to work writing whenever I’m not changing our newborn’s nappy or feeding our gorgeous toddler.
Maybe I could also GIVE more by offering my writing services to the corporate world (for a price of course) and not staying safe and sound tucked away in my study imagining the only outlet for my creative writing skill is in my own stories, songs and blogs?
Why should I limit my writing, and my audience, in anyway?
And maybe I can GIVE more by sharing my non-writing skills too.
Since I took to this blogging caper I’ve had a lot of fun coming up with images for my posts. I love coming up with interesting pictorial representations to go along with my writing. In my last post I took a photo of $1000 cash then played with that simple image in my photo manipulation application to create even more (see pic of $10,000 at top).
I didn’t stop with $1000 (or $10,000) either. Inspired by that previous post about the power of our subconscious to affect and inform our conscious mind (and therefore choices, actions etc…) I came up with a few more money images, riffing away on the idea that a LOT of money is just a LITTLE money repeated.
The idea is if you start with $1000 and then keep collecting those (the $1000′s) before you know it you’ll have $10,000.
So, if you could do with $10,000 dropping into your lap maybe you’d like to print off the picture and put your mug in the middle (where the girl’s ‘blank’ face is). Perhaps it might help you VISUALIZE yourself receiving ten grand and help your subconscious ‘make it so’?
Or maybe you’d like to focus on a bit more, like $100,000 maybe? In which case this pic below might help, especially if you are currently focussed on having an abundance mentality, whether it be in order to manifest a new home, a new car or simply plenty of cash to pay the bills.
Then again if you’re comfortable setting your sights on the full cool mill’ here it is: $1,000,000 for YOU…
At this resolution a million bucks looks like a kinda’ nondescript pattern—a table cloth or wallpaper maybe? Perhaps that’s a helpful way to think about such a large figure of money? As I said before, a lot of anything is just a small amount of something replicated many times.
And your first million bucks has already started to accumulate in your pocket or purse because, of course, it all starts with a single dollar.
And a single thought.
What do you think?
