It’s useful to take a few moments out every once in a while and really think about who you are being right now and compare that to who you really want to be. When you do this you can sometime find there’s a disconnection between the two. We have been taught to think that having things allows us to do things so that we become who we want to be. If you were to say to yourself “I want to have a million dollars in the bank and then I will feel like a millionaire” you would be working off “have-do-be” which is actually the reverse of the success formula to great riches.
Simply put, if you want to have more (whether it’s money, income, wealth etc) you have to BECOME more. The late Jim Rohn, the legendary personal development guru said, “Success is not a doing process, it is a becoming process. What you do, what you pursue, will elude you—it can be like chasing butterflies. Success is something you attract by the person you become.”
- Realize that Be x Do = Have. Most people believe if they "have" a thing (success, more time, money, love -whatever), then they can finally "do" a thing (change career, move country, write a book, take up a hobby, go on vacation, buy a home, undertake a relationship), which will allow them to "be" a thing (successful, happy, wealthy, content, or in love). However, “havingness” doesn’t produce “beingness”. It actually works the other way round. Act as if you are (successful, happy, and wealthy) and you will draw it to you. This is kinda faking it until you make it except you believe it to be true.
- Act Your Way into a Better Way of Thinking. There’s a saying which goes: “It’s better to act your way into a better way of thinking than think your way into a better way of acting”. However, this is only partly true as it works on the principle of “do-have-be”. You can start acting and behaving like a wealthy person in order to start feeling more wealthy and attracting more wealth. However, “doing” will only produce “having” some of the time, but “being” will produce “having” all of the time. Unless the underlying subconscious mind program (or mental movie) you have running is congruent with your actions you’ll soon revert to your old behaviours. It’s just a matter of time. This is the reason many people fail at dieting, giving up smoking, getting rich, setting and achieving goals, New Year’s resolutions and so on. The “programs” or mental movies you have running inside your mind will ultimately dictate the outcome of your entire life beyond any actions or goals you make.
- Start 'Being' When You Don't 'Have'. Many people pursue “success” without knowing the formula to achieving success. It’s important to know how success happens. It’s really not an accident and has little to do with luck. When you look inside your mind, the mental movie you have playing about yourself will determine how you feel, how you think and how you act. Programming the subconscious mind for success works for you on the basis of Be-Do-Have. Mahatma Gandhi famously said “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” You must be the change you want to see in yourself. You can program your mind by allowing yourself to relax and then filling your mind with visuals of the successful “have” outcome, feeling the associated emotions travel throughout your body. You are automatically becoming the thing you see inside your mind. It’s inevitable. The act of filling your mind with visuals and your body with emotions will dictate what you “do” to ensure that you “have”. This formula works by creating solutions, opportunities, and circumstances by you choosing a perspective now, and acting with belief to achieve an outcome. There’s so much more to understanding and utilising the subconscious mind as a partner in your success at anything. Utilizing the power of the subconscious mind can fast-track your achievement in anything in life, bringing to you great success, developing riches and building wealth.
