Excerpt from How To Program Your Mind For Wealth
Have you ever heard the old joke that asks “How many therapists does it take to change a lightbulb?” The answer? “Just one, but the lightbulb has to really want to change!”
This may be a dumb old joke, but it is actually drenched with wisdom.
Unless you are truly prepared to change, unless you are thoroughly fed up with your current situation, no amount of self-help, therapy, or positivity will help. You now have in your possession the guide to a new way of thinking about your life: a way of thinking that stresses the idea that you can grow and that your mind can evolve to accept the prosperity that is your birthright.
Until now, for whatever reason, you have limited your enjoyment of life. It is time to leave that in the past. In the next 30 days we will sweep up the psychological debris in your mind and toss it out like yesterday’s trash. There are many excuses for accepting the security of our lives, even if that security is limited and uncomfortable, but if you are reading these words you are obviously ready to take the necessary action to make positive change in your life.
How does change happen? There is only one way. You must decide that continuing to live your life in the same way will cause you more pain than deciding to put out the necessary effort to change your life. You know very well that repeating the same limiting patterns of your life will only leave you dissatisfied. That is why you are reading this lesson. You are now ready to begin a new life. As they say, today is the first day of the rest of your life. Only you can choose the direction of your life. Today, choose growth over stagnation.
It is up to you. You must decide that you will change. You must choose change. You must realize that in this moment you have the power to choose the direction of your life. Seize this opportunity to choose growth, happiness, and prosperity.
You must begin today. Enter this moment. The past is dead. The future is a dream. It is only in this present moment that you can take the action to make the change. Do it! Do it now! Take five minutes, right now, to feel the truth of these words:
THIS MOMENT IS MY POINT OF POWER. THE PAST IS OVER. THE FUTURE IS NOT YET HERE. IT IS ONLY IN THIS PRESENT MOMENT THAT I CAN TAKE ACTION TO CHANGE MY LIFE. THIS MOMENT IS MY POINT OF POWER. RIGHT NOW, I CHOOSE TO TAKE THE ACTION NECESSARY TO CHANGE MY LIFE.
“To change one’s life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. No exceptions.” –William James
