Separate your sheet of paper into two separate columns. On that paper, write the old saying, and write down the ways in which you lived your life according to this old belief that’s ingrained in your mind. Then, on the right side, rework the belief. Rework it so that it serves you. Poke fun at it if you have to, but do this exercise. After you reword the old belief, write down the reasons why you’ll live by the new belief from now on. Go back to your financial goals to look at the reasons why you wanted to achieve those goals. Reference those reasons why, and write down reasons why you must live by the new beliefs. Write down why you must rewire your financial hardwiring. Keep these new beliefs with you, and each month, come back to them when you repaint your financial picture and reset your goals. Don’t have New Year Syndrome when it comes to doing this work.
The problem is that it’s easy to ignore hidden beliefs and debt when you choose not to look at it. When you tuck it under a rug and push it away, your ego can do a lot to help serve itself in these situations. Don’t allow this to happen. Don’t allow your ego to run your life in this manner. Make sure that you do each of these exercises, and you put your heart into it. Don’t just do it for the sake of doing it; do it because it matters. It matters because it’s your future on the line. It’s so important to manifesting a bigger and brighter future for yourself and your family. Realize how important your financial hardwiring is, and work on rewiring it. At first, it will be hard because you’re exposing the truth that your ego doesn’t want you to see. But, eventually it will get easier to see; the ego will shrink as you become empowered with the truth. If you can think back to anything that you overcame in the past, think about how you built awareness to where you were, versus where you wanted to be. It makes all the difference, and assessing and reassessing it is critical. You must constantly see where you are, versus where you want to be. You must always do this; it’s one of the most important parts of the process. It’s one of the most important parts of the millionaire method.
