It’s your beliefs, which shapes your destiny. Learning how to engage your mind to support growth is the secret of life. Of course, the secret of life is not a secret at all. Several Gurus like Buddha and Jesus have been telling us the same story for ages. Several breakthrough research has been done in the last several years on the mind and human psychology.
Now science is also supporting in the same direction. A human being is not controlled by genes (old thought process) but through beliefs. These beliefs control your lives immensely.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts Your thoughts become your words Your words become your actions Your actions become your habits Your habits become your values Your values become your destiny.”- Mahatma Gandhi
It all starts with BELIEFS and leads to DESTINY in the above quote.
These beliefs, which generally sink in your mind up to the age of seven-year, control 90 % of your life unconsciously. Many a time these beliefs are false but still, they are powerful enough to control your life. To change these false & limiting beliefs, you need to replace them with more powerful beliefs, which are true, based on scientific facts & researches.
These beliefs affect each dimension of our life, be it personal, professional, spiritual, social, financial, etc. As there are so many dimensions, so we are going to discuss financial life here.
Because financial life is one, by which each and every other dimension is connected. I hope most of you will agree with me. We cannot pay out electricity bills, children education fee by some spiritual means, we need money for that.
One of my life’s mission is to bring changes in the financial lives of millions of people by changing their false & limiting beliefs about money. And I hope you are with me to change your own life and at the same time to spread these factful messages to your friends and loved ones.
How do we take actions based on Beliefs!
You are planning to buy a car. If you are feeling that your next car will be a low-cost car, then you are having one set of thought processes. But if you are feeling for the high-cost car, then you are in a different set of thought processes.
Actually, peoples do their buying much before in mind than to get that product physically. The following can be the thought process scenarios in your mind-
Scenario 1: Cash is not the concern, then you will simply go to a car showroom and purchase your car as per your choice. Be it low cost, medium cost, or high cost.
Scenario 2: If you are having a limited budget & in your family purchasing only a new product is preferred, then the situation may be different. Though you are wishing to have a good car, but you’ll go for the low-cost car.
Scenario 3: Budget is limited, but a good second-hand car is not at all a discussion point in your family, then you can have that. You are not wishing to have a second-hand car, but due to budget limitations, you are making that decision. Later, once you have a sufficient budget you will definitely go for a new high-cost car.
Scenario 4: Not having sufficient funds this time, but want to have a good car and only a new one. Now in this case you will either increase your earning means or simply follow the loan system. But remember, the loan is good for asset purchasing not for liability purchase.
So, what am I saying here is there are always multiple-choice to approach in any situation. In some choices, we play safe and within our comfort zone, and in others, we cross our comfort boundary.
Not all time-rich people buy the new products!
One of my colleagues was from a highly rich family, whenever I talk to him, I wonder why is he doing the job. He used to come by different bikes or cars to the company from very early days.
One day he came with a beautiful superbike. On that day he receives a lot of greetings as his bike was having stunning look. Later one day, I ask him the cost of that bike. He said it cost him around ₹ 9 lakhs. Another day I was searching for that bike on google, I found that cost around ₹ 19 lakhs. It was a bit surprising, how can that person was not telling the correct price.
After few days, I shared with him about my google search, he smiled and said, ‘though my bike looks like just arriving from the showroom, but I purchased that second hand’.
As we are having multiple options to act in any given situation. How we make final choices is driven by our beliefs and the environment we live in.
Majority time we act like our parents or guardian who is having a good influence on us. If we have seen most of our relatives or friends buying cars using loans, then quite a good chance that we shall go with loan options.
But if we have seen them as a business creator, from which money pouring regularly, then we shall soon be like them only.
We many time limits ourselves to grow financially in spite of knowing the fact that there is several thousand self-made millionaires in the world. Also across the world, out of total billionaires, more than 70 % of billionaires are self-made ($1 billion > ₹7000 crore).
My trading experience of beliefs!
So, the point is we need to shun limiting beliefs about money and replacing them with abundance beliefs. I personally used this for trading for around 4.5 months. Before starting trading, I asked some of my friends that what is their net portfolio, the answer was that in some shares there is very good or good profit and in others it is loss. Overall hardly one or two who were having their portfolio in positive.
Before starring, I mentally prepared myself that I shall only make a profit in trading. I asked good practices to some of the people, who were doing good in trading. A few of them given some personal advice and also suggested weekly magazines for trading. Believe me friends, during that period, my portfolio was always on the positive side. Later I sold most of my stocks and invested that money in another stream.
Overall it’s your mind, which acts as per your beliefs, your thought processes. It’s subconscious power is so powerful that it can turn any dimension of your life into heaven or hell. So keep feeding good thoughts, positive thoughts, abundance thought to mind always, it’s subconscious power will reflect the same in reality.
