Often, people just can't see a way out of their financial situation. Feelings of being trapped and frustrated are common. Internal dialog often includes, "What's the matter with me? Why can't I get my financial act together when so many other people can?"
Let me assure you that no matter what you level of financial anxiety, there IS a way out.
A powerful antidote for fear is action. Taking action allows you to feel more in control of your situation and you can work towards a solution. As long as you allow fear to paralyze you, nothing will change. If you keep on doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you already have. Wherever you are doing now is your habit. You probably have a financial pattern that keeps repeating itself. The goal is to break the habit and create a new, healthier habit.
Is it easy? No. You've created a groove and your life goes around and around in that groove. Creating a new groove takes a strong willingness to change and the determination to work through your own resistance. The longer you have been in the grove, the more effort it will take to get out of it.
Can you do it quickly? Probably not. It takes time to work through old patterns, and it is a complex process. But if you don't start, you will never move forward. It's not as if you have to wait until the process if over to see change. Change happens the minute you start.
There is one thing you can be sure of: if you set your mind to become comfortable financially and you are willing to work on it a little every day, you can do it. I'm going to ask you to agree to believe one thing: There is a solution for you and financial comfort and security are possible for you. You don't have to know how it is going to happen, you just have to agree to believe that it is possible, and then to act as if it will happen.
Here's where the action part comes in. You are going to get yourself ready for financial success. Some of your actions will appear to have nothing to do with money. That's because your financial situation is an extension of your thoughts, beliefs and emotions (TBE's) as well as the energy you generate -- in all areas of your life. While you are working through the process, you will have to deal with the voice inside that is going to try to keep you where you are. Worry and fear will keep coming back.
When you feel yourself starting to worry or give in to fear, it's time to do something else. After all, the worry and fear are only in your mind. You have the option of filling your mind with something else. When you thoughts are positive fifty-one percent of the time, you are moving in a positive direction.
Affirmations are great. They can help you reprogram you subconscious to act on a more positive
