Every thought you think counts.




I feel good now that I have earned a salary over $100,000 per year. I have achieved financial freedom and feel comfortable with and ahead of my expenses. I use my money to enjoy high quality food and entertainment and I can travel to new places. Financial resources keep lining up for me.

The value, worth and consequence of my life is not determined by what I assume other people think about me, or what they actually think about me. My life is inherently valuable no matter what the outcomes of my actions are. By moving forward with my values, I will live a life of consequence and value.

Every day my actions and thoughts contribute to the greater good of the world. I appreciate that my contribution matters and pay it forward so others can feel the value of their lives.

I am living a compassionate and loving life. My presence inspires happiness in others and motivates them to move toward their dreams. I am empathetic, fair and present for those around me.

Earning Money

I was watching a John Assaraf video on ways to make money. The method out of the six that resonated with me most closely was Earning Money.

Assaraf outlined four steps to earning money.

First is believing that I can make the income I want.

The Second is to understand that earning money is an exchange. I must provide value through products or services and in return I can receive money.

Thirdly, I need to have a plan to invest the money I earn and know where I can put the money so it will grow into more.

The Fourth step is knowing where to find money. Once I'm clear on how much money I want to earn and I condition my brain to this new belief, my mind will begin seeing ways to make this happen. If I don't believe it to be possible, the mind will be closed off to new opportunities because we see what we are conditioned to see.

N-E-T (New Empowering Thought)

The value, worth and consequence of my life is not determined by what I assume other people think about me, or what they actually think about me. My life is inherently valuable no matter what the outcomes of my actions are. By moving forward with my values, I will live a life of consequence and value.

Financial Freedom

I enjoy experiencing my financial freedom. I live independently and can enjoy the experiences I wish to have. I'm able to enjoy delicious foods from around the world at top restaurants. I eat sushi, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Israeli and Mexican food when it appeals to me. I travel for the weekend and rent gorgeous cottages and beach houses. I write.

Building my life of dreams

I've been working with Greg Sims and his Practical Goal Setting Technique for two sessions over a few weeks. I'm working on this book idea and building momentum with the project. I'm also generating ideas for the lifestyle I dream of. I want to be independently employed and autonomous.
