And no it’s not a misprint. I’m not referring to Eckhart Tolle’s book on spiritual enlightenment. I’m talking about the word ‘how’.
I wonder if you’ve ever realised it’s one of the most important words in the English language.
Want to know why?
Because it opens the mind.
Let’s say you want to go on an overseas holiday. Teased by those tv adverts, or posters in travel agent windows that scream ‘book me now’ you want it so bad you can almost feel it. The sand, the mountains, the castles, the cocktails, the cruise. Whatever takes your fancy.
But there’s a problem… no money in the account.
So often the default pattern is to simply give up and say “I can’t afford it”.
But that only serves to reinforce the poverty mindset. Feels pretty ordinary when you think like that, doesn’t it.
So here’s a flash…
What happens if instead you ask the question “How can I afford it?”
Most people don’t realise the use of the word HOW in front of any thing opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
“I can’t” closes things down.
“How can I” opens things up.
HOW can I afford it?
HOW can I make it happen?
HOW can I achieve my goal?
This little word ‘how’ is a bit of magic. Because it enables that brilliant creative subconscious mind of yours to get to work to make it happen. It creates an opportunity.
So how will you put this to work?
