Living your best life is about more than just achieving financial abundance. It's about freedom. Freedom to what you want, with who you want when you want.
Over the past 18 years I have educated thousands of people on how to use strategic low-risk property investment to create freedom - but some just kept making the same mistakes. It was like watching Groundhog Day - regardless of their best intentions, all the resources and support had, at the last minute they either did nothing and stalled or bought the wrong type of property.
I couldn’t work it out. However in recent years I have cracked this silent assassin of dreams. It was like there were money stories from their past that were running on a continuous loop - one they couldn't escape. What I found was that people don't have an awareness of their own money stories and patterns that may be repeating, patterns that hold them back from their goals.
After years of research into the mindset of why some achieved the wealth they desired and others didn’t, I found the key to achieving financial abundance. So, what was the silent assassin? Our unconscious patterns that influence our thoughts, feelings, and behaviour, often without us even realising it.
These patterns are borne over years of repetition and now become the familiar, the comfortable default. They can be based on past experiences or beliefs that we've inherited from our parents, society, or culture. They can also be influenced by our environment, our relationships, and our daily habits… which if practised diligently - daily, like most people do, then they become like deep wheel marks in a boggy road - there is no way to escape, your path is set.
If we're not aware of our unconscious patterns, we can end up repeating the same behaviours and getting the same results, even if we're not happy with those results. For example, if you grew up with the belief that money is the root of all evil, you may unconsciously sabotage your own financial success, even if you consciously desire abundance, because you view yourself as not evil but good.
Just take a moment and think of all the sayings, proverbs, and even lyrics in songs relating to negative aspects of money - go on write a few down - you will be shocked. One of the first steps in understanding your unconscious patterns is to identify them. Once you've identified your patterns, you can start to question them and over time be ready to pounce before you kick in with an action.
1. Journal: Take some time to write down your thoughts and feelings about money. Identify any patterns that you notice in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour.
2. Reflect: Set aside a few minutes each day to reflect on your beliefs and behaviour around money. Ask yourself questions like, "What beliefs do I have about money?" "How do these beliefs impact my behaviour?"
3. Seek support: Join a community or a group or consider working with a coach who specialises in mindset and money to help you identify your unconscious patterns and beliefs, and provide you with tools and strategies to reprogram your mind for abundance.
By questioning your patterns, you can start to let go of the ones that are holding you back and replace them with new, more effective habits. But there is no magic bullet - this requires vigilance.
Another important step is to surround yourself with positive influences. This includes the people you spend time with, the media you consume, and the daily habits you engage in. If you're constantly surrounded by negativity, it's going to be hard to reprogram your mind for abundance. Instead, seek out positive influences that support your goals and your vision for your life.
In conclusion, living your best life is about enjoying life to the fullest. Achieving financial abundance is a part of that, but it's not the only part.
This is where understanding your unconscious patterns comes in. By understanding what's been holding you back, you can renovate yourself and renovate your wealth, achieving the financial abundance you desire and deserve.
By identifying your patterns, and questioning, acknowledging and setting them aside, and then focusing on a more positive perspective, you can start to reprogram your mind and attract more abundance into your life.
But this process doesn't happen overnight. It takes time, effort, and patience to be aware of these unconscious programs quickly, and be able to change tack.
However, the rewards are worth it. You'll start to notice changes in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour, and you'll begin to attract more coincidences, gifts, enchantments and abundance into your life. And here is a spoiler alert: it affects all aspects of life.
Living your best life is about finding balance in all areas of your life, including your finances. By understanding your unconscious patterns and renovating yourself and your wealth, you can achieve the financial abundance you desire and deserve. Remember, it's never too late to start creating the life you want.
