Can You Think Your Way To Riches?

I am going to tell you something you already know but actively ignore. 90% of the time, 90% of what you think is complete and utter drivel, useless background chatter, and recycled subconscious tape loops.

We all know that thought is a creative activity and that conscious intentional thought is responsible for ALL wealth creation; yet, we allow our minds to wander aimlessly around in the surrealistic wasteland of old ad jingles, meaningless daydreams, unfocussed societal programming and non-productive, unconscious idle thoughts.

In fact, you can compare most people's mental activity to a TV set with 400 cable channels all controlled by a channel surfing chimpanzee holding the remote control. No focus; no attention span; no intentionality; no reason; no worthwhile purpose. No worthwhile results.

Thought creates. Focused intentional thought creates intended results. Unfocussed, unintentional thought creates unintended results. What you think about, you bring about.

In order to produce (create) wealth, you must train your mind to think the thoughts that produce wealth. And you must also train your mind to think those thoughts clearly and consistently.

I am not the first to tell you this.

Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz
The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

These are all classics; all bestsellers. They all say the same simple thing...the results that show up in your life are created by what and how you think. So, let me ask you this...what exactly are you thinking? Why? To what purpose do you allow your mind to hold the thoughts that it does?

Most people never achieve the levels of success and happiness they aspire to. And these 90% of people willfully ignore the fact that 90% of the time, 90% of their thoughts are creating results they do not intend or desire.

Always, according to these people, it is the outside conditions and circumstances that are to blame for their lack of hoped for results. They steadfastly refuse to closely examine their own thought processes and steadfastly refuse to accept responsibility for what and how they think.

I'll tell you this...if you really, really desire to create for yourself the ideals of wealth, health and happiness you hold, you will have to learn to think on purpose. A hammer is a tool. A chisel is a tool. Many can use them to chip away at concrete. Michelangelo used them to create the statue of David (and more). The mind is a tool. Many use it to chip away at life. A few use it to create their ideals, the life of their dreams. Your mind is your own. It is a tool. How you use it is up to you.

We can all see the stupidity of someone wanting to be healthy and fit but spending their evenings channel surfing in front of the boob tube eating junk food. It is the same as wanting to be wealthy while spending most of the time thinking random non-productive thoughts.

Physical exercise produces results. So does mental exercise. Living on a diet of junk food will prevent or destroy your health. Living on a diet of mental junk will prevent or destroy your wealth. Simple thing to understand; yet most folks live on mental junk. They watch mindless drivel on TV. They allow societal programming to dominate their thought processes. They don't examine what they are thinking. They don't make the effort to think on purpose. They don't flex their mental muscles.

Can you think and grow rich? You bet. That is how all riches are created. Most, however, are more habituated to the "think and grow poor" way of life. Opt out of the mass mindset. Start thinking creatively. Start thinking wealthy thoughts.

The laws of the universe are immutable. One such law is that thought creates. Like gravity, it works all the time, not just when you want it to. Your every thought is creative. Scattered thoughts create scattered results and that sometimes confuses people and leads them to believe that thought is not always creative. 15 minutes of positive, focused, purposeful thought cannot completely override 23 hours and 45 minutes of unfocused, negative and accidental thought. If your results are mixed, it is because the quality of your thoughts is mixed.

You can deny but not escape that plain and simple truth.

Do you want to create intended and desired results? Get control of your thoughts. Do you want to be wealthy? Think your way to riches. Get the wealth consciousness.
