Since it’s Valentine’s Day I wanted to talk to you about the power of LOVE! Now, many are looking at this holiday as the official day for lovers, or love for our family members or friends or even friendship day. While all of these are important, valid and relevant in our lives let me expand on the topic and take it to a whole new level for you. Let’s talk about the power of [Read more…]
How about when you just feel negative energy or emotion and cannot identify a belief that’s blocking you? In addition to beliefs that we can actually pinpoint in our lives, many times things happened during childhood before we could even speak or understand. This is energy stored in our bodies, in our subconscious mind, and we may not even be aware of it other than through a feeling of discomfort in certain situations. [Read more…]
In the past several articles we have been talking about how beliefs determine the reality you will live in your life. Beliefs have the power to easily make you super successful, rich and happy or they can also make you unsuccessful, broke and miserable. The Law of Life most certainly is the “Law of Belief” which is what the book “The Secret” failed at communicating effectively. [Read more…]
As you learned in the previous article, the most effective way to change your programming is to input new programs into your computer, which is your mind. Remember that these programs are stored in your subconscious mind and they were installed through repetition and usually accompanied by strong feeling or emotion whether it was positive or negative. They are running and producing results automatically every day of our lives.
What we need to do is use the same strategy only now on purpose using the same repetition accompanied by strong feeling to install new positive programs, thereby deleting the old limiting programs and replacing them with empowering new ones that automatically take us where we desire to be in life.
Every one of us is having conversations inside our heads non-stop but most of us are not aware of it. Recall that the average person has over 60,000 thoughts per day and that over 90% of them are the same thoughts day in and day out. Since most people are repeatedly having limiting, negative or self-deprecating thoughts these are a declaration of truth or an affirmation to the subconscious mind. Since this is an unconscious process, they are not aware of what they’re thinking, when they’re thinking it, or how often they’re thinking it but it is producing the exact results they are getting in their lives at every single moment.
If we begin by using a series of powerful affirmations to remind us of who we really are and the power that we have, then decide on purpose what our self-concept or identity will be, we can transform ourselves in a very short period of time. We can go from zero to hero almost overnight. Let me share with you a series of affirmations that I began using when I was broke, in debt, frustrated and unhappy. These affirmations helped me get to a six-figure income in less than two years and then a seven-figure income in five years.
I am a child of God.* God loves me. I am an individualization of God. God made me in his image and likeness. I am an extension of Divine Mind. God is my unlimited source and supply; therefore I am wealthy and always have a Divine Surplus. Infinite Intelligence lives in me and teaches me all things and guides me into all truth, therefore I have the wisdom of God. God is for me; God is in me now, who can be against me? I can do all things through Christ (my God-self), which is my power. Everything I do prospers because I’m an extension of God and with God all things are possible!
*If you’re not comfortable with the word “God” or “Christ” you can substitute Source Energy, Divine Mind, Spirit, Universe, Infinite Intelligence or whatever you’re comfortable with.
Charles Haanel, author of the Master Key System, which is the program Bill Gates is rumored to have read before creating Microsoft, used principle-based affirmations to help his students align their minds and create positive results. He taught that thoughts and words are creative energy, which automatically correlate with their object and manifest it because thought is spiritual energy. He said that prosperity was the result of right or creative thinking and poverty was the result of negative or destructive thinking.
Haanel gave people this affirmation and told them to say it first thing every morning and last thing before going to bed at night and as many times as possible throughout the day… “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, prosperous and happy.” I have personally used this affirmation and it’s very powerful.
He said every negative thought or word is destructive and must not be allowed to enter your mind or be expressed in words. Every thought of weakness is opposed to strength and should be put out of mind by saying “I am strong and powerful” and every thought of disease or sickness is opposed to wholeness and perfection and should be eliminated by declaring “I am whole and perfect.” He declared that to know this law and live in harmony with it was to build prosperity on a rock-hard foundation, which nothing could destroy.
I use these affirmations to remind me of who I am and the unlimited potential that I have within me. They build my faith and give me strength to continually move forward towards my dreams because they are Universal Truth.
I will share a few more of these “Power Affirmations” with you so you can begin re-programming your subconscious to attract the positive results we all desire in our lives…
- “My good-will is a strong force field all around me. I now transmute all enemies into friends, all discord into harmony and all injustice into justice.”
- “The walls of lack and delay now crumble away and I enter my Promised Land under grace.”
- “I am expanding rapidly into the Divine Plan of my life where I enjoy perfect self-expression and all conditions are permanently perfect.”
- “God is unlimited source and supply. The Divine Plan for my life unfolds now and everything that is mine by Divine right comes to me easily under grace.”
- “The Lord (my God-Self) is my Light, my Strength, and my Salvation. Whom shall I fear?”
- “I expect the seemingly impossible and it happens NOW. My seemingly impossible good now comes to pass.”
- “Now is the appointed time, today is the day of my amazing good fortune.”
- “The long arm of God reaches out over people and conditions controlling this situation, protecting my interests and delivering me my highest good.”
- “I cast this burden of ____________ on my God-self within and I go free to enjoy the ____________ that is mine by Divine Right.”
In addition to these powerful affirmations I have also, over the last 20 years, developed an exercise to reshape my identity and that of my students in order to create an empowering self-concept. I will begin teaching you this incredible technique in my next article.

Most people live life in various stages of frustration because they don’t feel they can be, do or have what they really want. The challenge comes from not having the right answers to questions because oftentimes we don’t even know the right questions to ask. We walk around in a state of doubt and confusion not realizing the huge potential we truly have. [Read more…]

Before you can start creating the life of your dreams you’re going to have to come to the realization that you are 100% responsible for what happens in your life. As we learned in previous lessons your thoughts have produced all the results in your life. Whether you [Read more…]
Most people are frustrated with the results they have in life. They are not satisfied where they are and want more but they don’t know how to go about getting it or changing their position in life. It can be a very challenging thing especially since we were not taught how to do it. The bottom line is that it’s not your fault but that still doesn’t make us feel any better because we still are not getting what we want.
If you’re not getting what you want in your life, the question you have to ask is, “How do I break out of that negative (or failure or mediocrity) cycle? How do I escape from that seemingly endless loop?” [Read more…]
Do you ever wonder why it seems so hard to get yourself to do the things you need to do to succeed? Or why it’s so hard to change a bad habit? It almost seems like there’s another one of “me” that wants to do things their way instead of doing what I want to do, right?
Have you ever wondered what God has to do with success or business? Many people have criticized me for talking so much about God in business and about being the key to all success. This is really not a religious concept because as the creating power in the Universe, God, Infinite Mind or Source Energy is present in all of its creation as potential power. It shows itself when we give it expression through our thoughts and actions. It is this power, which produces all results, and you cannot separate yourself from it no matter how hard you try!
