Why do I keep repeating my mistakes in my wealth building activities? Is increasing my income and net worth (in financial terms) actually building wealth? Or is wealth a lot more than that? What is wealth?
What is my blueprint for creating wealth? Am I wired to wealth or am I wired for ‘un-wealth’! What creates my wiring or neural networks for a wealthy mind?
Is my blueprint for creating wealth giving me what I want? Where did I get my blueprint? How did I get wired? It’s nature and nurture. And our neurological circuits are wired through our experiences, memories, decisions, values, beliefs, etc. It is driven by how we make and give meanings to everything that we encounter or experience.
We process our life experiences through our 5 senses of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell and represent them in our minds by creating maps (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, gustatory and olfactory) in our minds. And just as a thermometer measures temperature and does not make any meanings about the temperature, these maps are just maps. However, as human beings, we are meaning makers – we give meanings to everything that we experience, through various symbolic or linguistic systems (words, sentences, metaphors, gestures, mathematics, music, art, etc.). And everything has the meaning we give to it! Through the combination of the maps (or ‘Neurological’ representations) and the meaning we make of the maps (the Linguistics), we Program our behaviors. And that’s our blueprint! All our behaviors have patterns – how we do anything is how we do everything! And our blueprint is determined by our beliefs! Understanding how we create our neuro-linguistic programming gives us the opportunity to change our beliefs. And our neuro-linguistics are layered with even more meanings at the deeper unconscious levels of the mind. (Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP is the art of running our brain and managing our emotional and neuro-linguistic states).
How do I know if I am wired to wealth? How did I create my wiring for wealth or scarcity? How can I change my blueprint for wealth?
So, all the meanings we have made of our life experiences become our beliefs! And some of these beliefs have become self-limiting beliefs (SLBs) about wealth! We have about 90,000 thoughts going through our minds everyday! How many of those thoughts are focused on what we don’t want about wealth!. Some of us have been conditioned for scarcity and poverty! The first and most important step in wealth building is to become aware of all our beliefs and values about wealth! We need first to dis-confirm our SLBs and replace them with empowering beliefs that support our wealth-building goals and activities. The practice of Neuro-semantic NLP provides the knowledge and skills to change our beliefs so that we are driven and supported only by empowering beliefs!
How do I sustain my wealthy mindset? How long does it take to be wealthy, and also financially independent?
It takes deliberate right practice to sustain our wealthy mindset. And you have to find your passion! Find that passion that you can invest yourself into fully with fascination, engagement and joy. Then invest in your mind and self-development so that you develop your skills into masterful competencies so that you can add value in a domain or niche that has the potential for creating lots of money. Invest in your own financial and wealth education so that you handle your money wisely. Create your wealth building plan with your singularity of potential, passion and profit. And persist for at least a decade!
