    Why Positive Thinking Does Not Work…

    I was recently asked to explain why I say ‘Positive Thinking Does Not Work.’ 

    “Napoleon Hill said, “There’s a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it.” 

    I struggled for years wishing I would make more money. 

    Wishing I had a better relationship. 

    Wishing I had a healthy, better fit body. 

    Wishing I had more sales.

    I am sure if you are reading this you have felt the same at some point in your life or another. 

    When I wouldn’t get the result I wanted, I tried putting a positive spin on it by thinking that maybe it was the wrong time, or maybe it just wasn’t meant to be, or it wasn’t my destiny.

    I could not understand how if I was a good person, why then wouldn’t I get what I wished for?  

    The truth is that wishing, wanting and thinking positively will not give us our Desired Results.

    No matter how much of a happy sticker I put over the problem. I just kept getting more of what I did not want. I began to feel like I was destined for bad things to happen. They kept showing up over and over again without me feeling like I was contributing to them happening.

     Have you ever felt that way?

    Positive thinking doesn’t work.  It’s like putting granite counter tops in a house that has a shoddy foundation. I might feel better momentarily, but it eventually it will collapse.  

    There is a better way.  So, What would allow us to receive it?  

    Napoleon Hill goes on to say “No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish.”

    The beliefs, habits, and values I had back then led me to believe that being nice, being a good girl and being likable would get me the results I wanted. This is a lie.  

    It took me 20 years of going through my own trials and tribulations to learn this One Simple Truth, and It doesn’t have to take that long.

    It isn’t that successful people think about different things than I did. They too have the same needs, desires, and urges. They too eat, drink, breathe, sleep, desire sex, and to expand themselves.

    The key difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is not in “what” we think every day. It is in “HOW” we think about what we think every day. 

    The key difference in Success vs. Failure, in Rich vs. Poor, in a Healthy Vital Body vs. Unhealthy Body, in a Thriving Relationship vs. Dysfunctional Relationship is “How” we think about these things. What is controlling how we think about these things is found in our values, beliefs, and habits we have in our subconscious programming.  Positive thinking won’t work to reprogram us.    

    The Truth is that this is easily re-programmable.

    Ask me if our one day VIP Intensives are right for you. This is where people re-program themselves in one intensive session.

     The Truth is Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond to a state of mind, clarity, and definitiveness of purpose, backed by definite desires, through constant PERSISTENCE and an Open-mindedness that is essential for a belief.

    The question I have for you is: What are you resisting right now?

    What are you resisting in Being, Doing, or Having that will allow you to go to your next level?

    What would be possible for you if you did? What would it look like if it was easy? What would the rest of your life look like then?  

    Are you ready? 

    The Paradox is you must go through it alone, and yet you can not do it alone.  

    I can help. 

    With love & respect for what you have been through,
