Two Great Questions

It seems as if the last few articles hasn't really "stretched" our mindset like some of the ones from last week had done, but that's about to change!
I am assuming that if you are still reading this that you are OPEN to expanding your mindset, especially in the area of MONEY since that is what we have been talking about all last week and this week. SO STAY WITH ME!
I mentioned on the podcast for this topic that I likely will do one on the meaning of the word "resolution" and the root word, "resolve" since so many seem to take their "New Year Resolutions" so lightly. Seriously, it's pretty much a joke and most people KNOW they really don't plan to do much - to RESOLVE - to make the changes that they say that they do.
Here's what I'm suggesting to you today - as we get close to the start of another year, why not set some BIG, HAIRY, AUDACIOUS GOALS fr the year to come? Why not push yourself like you've never pushed yourself before?
What do I mean? Well, let's look at these "Two Great Questions" that Bob Proctor shares in "The Science of Getting Rich":
     1. How would your life change if your MONTHLY income suddenly became your WEEKLY income?
    2. How would your life change if your ANNUAL income suddenly became your MONTHLY income?
Hey, you've come this far, so, again, STAY WITH ME! Go ahead and get out a piece of paper and write these figures down. Obviously go with #1 first and write down what your MONTHLY income actually is (take-home pay). Go ahead and do the math to see what it would actually come out to financially if that amount became your weekly income. Multiply that amount (your current monthly income) X 52 weeks to see what that would mean for your new annual income!
WOW! Now notice the part that says, "how would your life change if...", and be sure to do that part. What would that mean for you and your family? What would change in your life? Get specific! (This is a great project to do together as a couple and, depending on the ages of your kids, possibly involve them in it as well.
So, yeah, now allow yourself to really stretch yourself and go big with #2! Don't worry if that seems to be impossible but WHAT IF? What IF your annual income could become your monthly income? Write down the amounts and, again, be sure to answer the "how would your life change IF..." part of the questions.
Allow yourself to add to this, rethink, adjust and expand on this over the course of several days.
For now, don't worry about the HOW, just all yourself to look at those figures and KNOW that, indeed, it CAN happen in your life!
Allow yourself to dream and to get excited! Remember one of the quotes from Mr. Proctor from an earlier post where he said, "There is no limit on what you can earn."?
In our next article we will look at one way to make this happen that Mr. Proctor shares. Until then, become blown away when you see the difference in what IS and what CAN be!
Until next time, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
