Easy Choices that Can Change Your Life
So how do you go about making changes and making them be easy?
The famous book “The One Minute Millionaire” by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen tells us the easy part is in the choices we make minute by minute. In other words, all you have to do is look at what is right in front of you this minute. You don’t have to concern yourself with tomorrow, next month, or next year in THIS moment.
The power to have huge results is in the choices that you make right now. Let me give you an example from the book. Let’s say that you want to find money for saving or investing or even making ends meet. Look at each moment that you are about to make a purchase and ask yourself, “Is this something that I can do without for my bigger cause?” Chances are by putting your focus on the moment and stopping to actually choose instead ofstaying on auto pilot you’ll find lots of dollarsthat you can now put to your new priority. And wow watch these dollars add up. Minute by minute you are actually having what you really want to come true.
So how do you start to do this? It isn’t any different or any harder than in the example above If you don’t know what you want, then start at the beginning.
We all know what we don’t want, so start there.
- List what you don’t want.
- Find the opposite of what you don’t want, so that you turn it into a list of what you do want.
- Put your wants in Technicolor. Get into the feeling place of those wants using all of your senses, so that they become alive for you.
- And finally expect it, listen for it, and allow it to happen. What happens here is in that moment you just put your awareness on the magic. You’ll get an inspired idea and, if you follow-up and actually do it, something oh so easy and right will lead you to exactly what you DO want. Or it will just appear from a source you hadn’t even thought about.
