We are having desire to improve our financial condition but in reality we are not able to change it. Why? There is missing link between our desire for success and our achievement of success. These are two different worlds altogether i.e. having desire and actual achievement.
No doubt you’ve read other blogs, watched YouTube videos, gone to courses, attended seminars and learned about numerous get-rich systems be they in real estate, stocks, or business. But what happened? For most people, not much! They get a short blast of energy, and then it’s back to the status quo. Finally, there’s an answer. It’s simple, it’s law, and you’re not going to remember it.
It all comes down to this: if your subconscious “financial blueprint” is not “set” for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know, and nothing you do will make much of a difference. “It’s not an exact science, but for the most part, rich people think a certain way and poor people think a completely different way, and those ways of thinking determine their actions and therefore determine their results.”
Internal & External Laws of Money
There are “external” & “internal” laws of money. The external laws include things like business knowledge, money management, and investment plans etc. These are essential. But the internal laws are important. An analogy would be a sculpture and his tools. Having top-of-the-line tools is imperative, but being the top-notch sculpture who masterfully uses those tools is even more critical.

So who are we? How do we think? What are our beliefs? What are our habits and traits? How do we really feel about ourself? How confident are we in ourself? How well we manage in difficult situation? How much do we trust others? Do we truly feel that we deserve wealth/money?
What is our ability to act in spite of fear, in spite of worry, in spite of inconvenience, in spite of discomfort? Can we act when we’re not in the mood? The fact is that our character, our thinking, and our beliefs are a critical part of what determines the level of our financial success.

When our inner world is not capable enough to manage money; whether small or large, outer world (realty) will also reflect in same way. We see TV shows, Lottery winners who get very high amount of money, for how long they maintain that money? They lose that money in maximum five years and reach in same position which was there earlier. Now you know the real cause.
On the outside it looks like bad luck, a downturn in the economy, a lousy partner, whatever. On the inside, however, it’s another matter. That’s why, if we come into big money when we’re not ready for it on the inside, the chances are our wealth will be short-lived and we will lose it. The vast majority of people simply do not have the internal capacity to create and hold on to large amounts of money.
Managing & Increasing money after earning is almost ten time harder. Lot of difficulties increases with increase amount on money, we had to train ourself to manage all these difficulties well. These show winners /Lottery winners were not ready and their thermostat was set for less amount, they spend all the surplus money in different means and come to original state at which their thermostat was set. Trust me, our subconscious mind a vital role here as well.
On the other hand, the opposite occurs for self-made millionaires. Notice that when self-made millionaires lose their money, they usually have it back within a relatively short time.
Why does this phenomenon occur? Because even though some self-made millionaires may lose their money, they never lose the most important ingredient to their success: their millionaire mind. Most people’s financial thermostats are set for generating thousands, not millions of dollars; some people’s financial thermostats are set for generating hundreds, not even thousands; and some people’s financial thermostats are set for below zero.
Research shows that 80 percent of individuals will never be financially free in the way they’d like to be, and 80 percent will never claim to be truly happy.
Imagine a tree. Let’s suppose this tree represents the tree of life. On this tree there are fruits. In life, our fruits are called our results. So we look at the fruits (our results) and we don’t like them; there aren’t enough of them, they’re too small, or they don’t taste good. So what do we tend to do?
Most of us put even more attention and focus on the fruits, our results. But what is it that actually creates those particular fruits? It’s the seeds and the roots that create those fruits. It’s what’s under the ground that creates what’s above the ground. It’s what’s invisible that creates what’s visible.
So what does that mean? It means that if you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.
For example, let’s suppose you’ve just written a letter on your computer. You hit the print key and the letter comes out of your printer. You look at your hard copy, and lo and behold, you find a typo. So you take out your trusty eraser and rub out the typo. Then you hit print again and outcomes the same typo. Oh my gosh, how could this be? You just erased it! So this time you get a bigger eraser and you rub even harder and longer.
You even study a three-hundred-page manual called Effective Erasing. Now you’ve got all the “tools” and knowledge you need. You’re ready. You hit print and there it is again! “No way!” you cry out, stunned in amazement. “How could this be? What’s going on here? Am I in the twilight zone?” What’s going on here is that the real problem cannot be changed in the “printout,” the physical world; it can only be changed in the “program,” the mental, emotional, and spiritual worlds.
What you cannot see in this world is far more powerful than anything you can see. You may or may not agree with this statement, but to the extent that you do not apply this principle in your life, you must be suffering. Why? Because you are going against the laws of nature, whereby what is under the ground creates what is above the ground, where what is invisible creates what is visible.
A lack of money is never, ever a problem. A lack of money is merely a symptom of what is going on underneath. Lack of money is the effect, but what is the root cause? It boils down to this. The only way to change your “outer” world is to first change your “inner” world.
Whatever results you’re getting, be they rich or poor, good or bad, positive or negative, always remember that your outer world is simply a reflection of your inner world. If things aren’t going well in your outer life, it’s because things aren’t going well in your inner life. It’s that simple.
I am really thankful to T. Harv Eker for Writing many of above scientific principle on finance in Book “The Secrets of Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth”. Till now I have applied so many principle in my own life to change my Thermostat of financial amount.
