This phrase in reality is a famous quote by celebrated American publisher and author William Feather. The quote is thrown around a lot but seldom do we realize the true meaning of it.
Now let’s examine this quote very closely. The quote does not say that wealth comes from doing something related to money. It does not say wealth flows from working extra hours, investments, winning a lottery or getting ahead of others in life. It says, wealth flows from energy and ideas.
To understand this concept better let’s break it down to a simple formula:
Ideas & Energy à Wealth
When we think of money and wealth and how to acquire a lot of it, we always confuse it with conventional methods of acquiring it, rather than sticking to the actual starting point – the mind. Yes, having a job or a business is one way to earn money and acquire wealth yet there is another level of wealth acquisition that involves acquiring the “idea” of wealth and prosperity.
Before jumping into the nitty gritty of wealth creation, take a step back and understand the mindset of acquiring wealth and abundance. The journey like all other journeys, or inventions must start from the head.
If you do not see it in your head, you cannot see it in your reality.
Let the ideas in your mind flow, work hard on them, and watch how the universe makes it real. What you must need, is to have an “idea” that to achieve what you want in life and that is the key to success.
When the idea is clear in your head, you slowly and steadily create a momentum to reach your goal. Wealth and prosperity are a state of mind that can be achieved by training your subconscious to welcome wealth with positive thinking rather than following what others are doing to acquire wealth. This state of mind creates a flow of immense positive energy that enables you to reach the pinnacle of financial success.
Journey not as easy as it sounds
This particular journey however is not as easy as it sounds. You have to totally commit yourself to your personal “Wealth Attraction Plan”. Take a moment on your own and chalk out your pros and then commit yourself entirely to plan out how these pros will translate to created\ wealth.
Be specific to your goals and give yourself a practical deadline. Write down how much money you want to make in 3 months, then 6 months, then a year and so on. Having a timeline always helps you to attain your goal and it gives you a clear idea as to how many days you took to achieve it. As time goes by, you will realize the timeline is getting shorter and you are making wealth much faster than your previous deadline.
At the same time, don’t be a person with a close mentality. Make yourself open to other ideas and suggestions and more specifically make yourself open to opportunities around you. You must be fluid to changing circumstances and be ready to grab any open opportunity that is closest to reaching your goal.
Robbing you out of your energy and keeping you from reaching your dreams
Lastly, let go of people and things that are robbing you out of your energy and keeping you from reaching your dreams. It’s difficult to attract wealth when a negative force is dragging you down. So, say goodbye to naysayers and non-believers of your plan.
Most people think making a lot of wealth is a result of sheer luck, they couldn’t be more wrong. Your mind is your own, you have to power to train it the way you want. So, train it to always generate “wealth-acquiring” ideas so that you are always full of the “hungry to succeed” energy. Wealth and prosperity will automatically follow.
