Power of thought cannot be underestimated!  Thought is the unquantifiable force which causes action.  When you believe something strongly and without equivocation, it has the effect of causing you to act as though it has already materialized.  The phrase fake it ‘til you make it comes to mind.

In the early 1990s, when Jim Carrey was still a struggling young comedian, he wrote himself a ten million dollar check for acting services rendered.  He dated the check Thanksgiving 1995.  He carried this check in his wallet from that day forward.  Mr. Carrey saw that payday in his mind so clearly that as far as he was concerned the money was already his, he was just waiting to cash the check!  Then, right before Thanksgiving 1995 he found out that he was going to be paid ten million dollars for Dumb & Dumber.

Here’s the thing – Whether you are cognizant of it or not, your thoughts are greatly influenced by your environment; more specifically the people with whom you associate.  Attitudes are contagious.  Are there people in your inner circle who promote positive thought?  Are there people around you whose ability to internalize success is so powerful that it is contagious?  According to Jim Carrey himself, his father was the beacon of conviction in Jim’s life.

If you scroll through the call history in your phone, how many millionaires (non-related to you) did you speak with this week?  How about bankers, CPAs, attorneys, investors, mortgage brokers, business brokers, and entrepreneurs are on the call list?  Probably none…  This means that if you are serious about becoming financially successful, the time has come to change your environment.  It is time to leave the place where you are – the couch in your living room in front of the TV, and find yourself surrounded by the doers among us…
