Last post we looked at developing your prosperity consciousness. The real process we need to do here is expansion. Expanding the window through which you see the world.
A lot of you have heard the story where I use shoes as the analogy for this process with me. I started with a dream to be able to afford $200 Bally loafers. Then it expanded to $500 Prada sneakers, $1,000 Testoni’s, and ultimately having custom made shoes done at Lobb’s of London. (When I tried to tell my insurance agent that I had $150,000 worth of shoes in my closet to insure, she started shrieking!)
This can happen in any area of prosperity: health, relationships, the income you earn, etc. You could start with a belief that people are out to use you in relationships. Then you could graduate to believing that you can protect your interests, but you need to keep a wall around you to prevent you from being hurt. Then you can evolve to being able to love someone and risk losing them. Then you can move into the realm of loving them unconditionally, and attracting someone that loves you the same way.
You could grow up thinking that $50,000 a year is a big income. Once you reach that, you’d probably decide that $100,000 or $200,000 is a lot.
When someone tells me that they make $100,000, I often respond with an incredulous “A YEAR?” That’s not to offend them, but to shock their system, and perhaps reconfigure their beliefs so that 100K seems more appropriate for a month or week, instead of a year.
Of course this last trip to Dubai was good to shock my own consciousness! There are people there that rake in a day what I make in a year.
That doesn’t mean you or I have to compete with others to manifest more. It’s about the amount that lubricates life and makes it more enjoyable for you.
I watched the movie “Iron Man” on the plane. And I have to tell you, that private jet he has is the nuclear bomb of cool! And I would like to have one like that. So I decided to quit playing so small and make some serious money.
So what about YOU?
Have you done something lately to expand the window you see the world through? What other things would you like to manifest, to bring more joy into your life?
