Here’s an interesting fact about this blog: In internet search-engines, Wealth Well Done, consistently gets ranked the highest for: “How to attract money with the subconscious mind?”. Hundreds of people stumble onto this blog on a daily basis looking for secret answers on how to attract money with their mind.
I’ve been writing articles for this blog for two years now, and I thought it was weird when I started getting traffic from google recommending my blog as an answer to this question. It was strange because I never planned to write articles based on the subject: “How to attract money with your mind.” Wealth is an incredibly difficult substance to create. It takes a lot more work than just sitting on a couch and letting money-building thoughts flicker in and out of your brain like a depraved zombie.
But as I thought more about how money can be attracted by the subconscious mind, and how these subjects relate to the articles I write on this blog, I realized that it makes sense why search-engines rank this blog so highly for these terms. I suddenly had a revelation: Attracting money with your mind is exactly what this blog is about.
This is why it makes sense:
If you combine the things I write about on this blog into your daily life, your mind will naturally start making the decisions to attract money and building wealth in your life. For example, if you embrace the core principles I advocate: Steps like taking action; embracing discipline; choosing smart risks; investing in long-term diversified investments; and add a little positive thinking into the mix, you will automatically start putting your mind in position to create money.
The entire subject of “How to attract money with your subconscious mind” was a topic that I accidentally stumbled upon with this blog. It made me want to write an entire post about the real-life results that are created when a person combines positive thinking, focused action, and hard work. Because this is what this entire blog is about!!!! It’s about how to identify the right actions and ideas that will transform your mind into a happiness, money, and purpose creating machine.
Before I go any further, here are four key principles that have helped me attract wealth with my subconscious mind:
#1) Choose a vision to dedicate your life to.
#2) Chase winning opportunities. Run from losing opportunities.
#3) Focus more on perfect execution rather than perfect ideas.
#4) Pursue things in life that are worth more than money.
I’ll write more on these four core principles as we travel through this article. But I believe these sum up the most important steps a person needs to begin creating money, success, and happiness in their life. The 120+ individual blog posts I’ve written so far on this blog, are all the little details and real-life examples of how to manifest these four principles in real life, and capitalize on the power we all have in our minds.
My Background Learning How to Attract Money with my Subconscious Mind:
The first time I ever explored the idea of creating money with your subconscious mind was when I read the book, “The Secret” in 2005 when I was 25-years old. “The Secret,” was a massively popular book in the early 2000’s that captivated the American mindset and won a ton of pop-culture awards and attention. It was a New York Times bestseller, and an Oprah’s book club selection, as well as one of her personal self-help favorite books. A corresponding “The Secret” movie was created, and its new-age “Law of Attraction” philosophy was sold and shared around the world. Celebrities and normal every-day people alike began trying to use “The Secret” to crack the code in their mind that would allow them to think positively and gigantically, and naturally attract money and success with their subconscious mind.
I was incredibly eager to read the book at that point in my life, because for me, I felt like my life had hit a dead end road. I had recently quit using drugs after a decade-long party addiction, and I was craving a new, healthy goal to pursue. I was stuck in a life stage where I really didn’t have anything I wanted, but I still believed I was smart enough to turn things around and create a life I did want to live. I read the book with an eager and open mind, and I was willing to do anything and everything I could to achieve the dreams I saw in my mind.
But after reading, “The Secret,” desperately hoping that it would contain all of the secrets on life I was looking for, I was horribly disappointed by what I found.
The “Secret’s” entire “Law of Attraction” philosophy was basically: Positive results are created by positive thoughts. Just think positively, and massive positive outcomes will begin flowing into your life.
I realized the Secret’s “Law of Attraction” was a great feel-good story, but not very practical in real life. Having amazing things consistently happen to you just because you think positively every day is about as realistic as fantasizing about rainbows and unicorns and then having a unicorn appear in your front yard under a rainbow in the morning.
I was let down. The entire philosophy sounded overly superficial and shallow to me. I started to believe that “The Secret” was really just a mass-packaged feel-good illusion that helped people feel like they were achieving important things without having to put in any hard work or sacrifice. Anyone can sit on their couch every day and daydream that a winning lottery ticket will magically appear, and sure, that will work for 1 in 10 million people who actually win it. But for everyone else, just thinking positive thoughts is an easy way to escape real-life, and dive into a fantasy world where you will easily waste your entire life daydreaming about a lucky break that will probably never come.
For me, reading “The Secret,” was a frustrating experience. It wasn’t the omni-powerful philosophical answer I was looking for. I wanted to do more than just think positive thoughts that would HOPEFULLY lead me to the life I saw in my dreams. I wanted more certainty. The “Secret’s” entire “Law of Attraction” philosophy felt too basic and wishy-washy for me. Sure, it made me feel good to fantasize about my dream vision board. But was that really doing anything concrete for me? Or was I just avoiding all of the hard work it would take to actually create that life? Sure, I wanted to believe that success would just naturally happen all around me if I thought about it enough. But I also knew there was an equal chance that NOTHING would happen, and I’d waste a big chunk of my life sitting there trying to think the perfect thoughts while I waited for a million amazing things to happen to me.
My own personal experience in life has taught me that awesome things are rarely super easy to accomplish and experience. Awesome things take hard work, sacrifice, and long-term planning. That’s why they’re awesome! Amazing lives are rare because few people can commit to the work, and stand the pain it takes to create them.
I’ve spend a lot of my life thinking positive thoughts, but success and money have never just magically appeared in front of me. I realized it takes more than that, and I knew it was going to take more than a $10 book and the law of attraction for me to get what I wanted out of life. I decided that if I was going to create my dream life, I was going to have to find my own magical ingredients to unlock my own secret recipe for money and success in life. Finding my own secrets to wealth and happiness became my quest in life, and I started to research and blaze my own trail toward the money, purpose, and happiness I saw in my dreams.
Over the next few years, I began to discover my own revelations on how money and success could be created out of the swirling powers in my subconscious mind. I realized it would take more than just a “want” and “positive mindset” to create it. I would have to sacrifice more than just a few hours “fantasizing” about it. I would have to work for it. I’d have to build it choice by choice, and decision by decision. But if I could LEARN how to think successfully, I realized, that would be the start to learning how to LIVE successfully.
I started combining the positive thoughts in my brain, with the positive actions I felt my soul urging me to take. That was the recipe that helped me begin creating wealth with my subconscious mind. This is what the equation looked like for me:
Positive Thoughts + Work that amplified the power in those thoughts = Opportunities to create wealth, happiness, and purpose for my life.
My personal definition and style of work evolved over the next decade. I read hundreds of books on the ideas and subjects my brain found fascinating. I used the art of writing to explore the thoughts in my brain, and I wrote thousands of journal entries and fictional stories to find the meaning of life. I studied cultures outside of my comfort zone. I tried to learn new perspectives different from my own.
Ultimately, I reset my life and started from scratch. Rather than thinking I knew everything, I asked a million questions. I listened to anyone who would respond to me. I dumped all this information coming from wise perspectives into my brain, and I called this new vault of knowledge my subconscious. I then let my subconscious mind lead my actions in life, and I went on a new adventure to find my purpose in life.
Sixteen years after I started my journey, I discovered what I believe are the four core principles to attract wealth with your subconscious mind. Here they are:
The Real Secrets To Attracting Wealth With Your Subconscious Mind:
#1 Choose an awesome vision to pursue.
Looking back on my journey, I realize my first step to unlocking the cage I had trapped myself in was deciding who I wanted to be. I needed a vision. I needed a role model. I needed to find a vision of a life I wanted to live, and a dream I wanted to chase.
Learning who I didn’t want to be, helped me find the vision of who I did want to be. For example, I learned from my young adult years that I didn’t want to be a liar, trickster, or drug-using schemer. Instead, I wanted to be real. I wanted to be liked for who I was. I wanted to be an inspiration for people who had fallen into dark times and wanted to crawl out.
So to start, I read books about people who had led lives like this. That way I could start seeing the vision of what it would take for me to live my dream life. Martin Luther King, and Abraham Lincoln were two autobiographies I remember reading. These leaders had done what I was trying to do: They had taken horrible situations, and turned them into opportunities for personal and cultural growth. Through their lives, I started to find the vision of the life I wanted to lead.
#2) Understand Winning Opportunities Vs Losing Opportunities.
Winning opportunities are opportunities in life where all parties benefit, profit, and grow from being part of the opportunity. Losing opportunities are opportunities where all parties struggle with being hurt, losing money, and forming a dysfunctional mindset to cope with the pain and failure that comes from failed opportunities.
I learned that successful people are always positioning themselves to be part of as many winning opportunities and relationships that they possibly can. They are constantly looking to profit and grow. They think creatively to create new streams of opportunities that will help them accomplish their goals. And they run as fast as they can from the opportunities that cause them to feel pain and shrink.
I realized that to be able to attract money with your mind, you have to always be making the decisions that will lead you toward winning opportunities, and steer yourself away from the losing opportunities that will lead your life into a dysfunctional mess.
Read around this blog a little bit. This blog is all about identifying winning thoughts, experiences, and opportunities, and then applying action to these opportunities to build the life you dream of.
#3) Execution is more important than perfect ideas.
Focus 90% of your energy on becoming a brilliant executor of ideas, and only 10% of your energy on finding or creating the perfect ideas.
What I learned about studying the leaders who inspired me, is that almost all of them were brilliant executors first, and perfect visionaries second. Meaning, they spent most of their energy on practicing their talents, and building alliances, so that they could execute their goals to perfection. The ideas didn’t have to be perfect to work as long as their execution skills could get the job done.
Executors are workers. They don’t wait for perfect thoughts or perfect people to appear. They realize action is the hardest step to take because it’s painful and scary. But they also know it’s the only way to create change, and turn a mediocre life, into an extraordinary adventure.
#4) Find what’s worth more than money to you. Do that.
Once you develope your own personal journey to find your visions, winning opportunities, and execution style, you will begin to find yourself. Then ask yourself, “What beliefs, goals, and adventures are worth more than money to me?”
Devote your entire life to accomplishing the things that are more valuable than money to you. You’ll find the happiness you were meant to live, and you’ll often find yourself creating money with your subconscious mind along the way.
