When Positivity Falls Short

Posted by Vince Poscente on Wed, Mar 25, 2020 @ 04:44 PM

It's time to pivot.

The problem with pivoting from negative thoughts to positive thoughts, is that's pretty lame advice, you know why? Because you first have to set up your emotional buzz. Your emotional buzz is, where do I want to go with my life? What do I want to do? Is this state that we're in right now where you want to be?

Well, maybe not, with this whole pandemic, so let's actually pivot by first identifying what your emotional buzz is, then you can pivot and when you pivot, this, your emotional buzz is where do I want to go with my life? What do I want to do? Is this state that we're in right now where you want to be?

Well, maybe not, with this whole pandemic, so let's actually pivot by first identifying what your emotional buzz is, then you can pivot and when you pivot, this is a way to do it. Make sure your conscious, your mind and your subconscious might have a conversation.

In a book I wrote called The Ant and the Elephant the ant is the conscious mind, the elephant the subconscious mind, and what they do is the ant realizes the elephant, the subconscious mind, is having a negative thought.

The ant says to the elephant, "Thank you. That's not part of my vision. My vision is…" (Insert your emotional buzz here.) and it pivots onto that emotional buzz you had in the first place.

So set your emotional buzz, where you wanna be in your life, and then, and make sure it has an emotional quotient attached to it, then when a negative thought appears, that's when you can pivot. That's when you can go to the subconscious mind, the elephant, and go, "Thank you, but that's not part of my vision. "My vision is..." and then go onto the positive thought. And you can make it even better if you add the sensations of sight, smell, taste, touch, and sound. I mean, you'd be able to bring in the five senses and really experience that, that will be an effective way to pivot on where you want to go.

Take care Covid Campers.

How Are Single Moms Dealing with Covid Camping?

Posted by Vince Poscente on Tue, Mar 24, 2020 @ 08:40 PM

Hello Covid Campers.

Let's profile a Covid Camper. Here's the first profile.

Here's an interview we captured a few days ago with single mom, entrepreneur and my sister, Christa Haberstock. (Note: It was taken in those good old days when we, non essential service people, were allowed to go out of the house but ensure we were social distancing.)

You'll learn how she has been ensuring her teenage kids can make the most out of their time. (Self admittedly, she's not the perfect mom.)

You'll learn how Christa pivoted from not making money in her current business to delivering groceries to those who could use the help. Note how she brought her kids into the service, as a parenting, teachable moment.

You'll see how Christa is using humor to make it all work in times of chaos.

Where's the Money? Covid Campers Will Find It

Posted by Vince Poscente on Tue, Mar 24, 2020 @ 08:15 AM

Hey, COVID Campers, Vince Poscente here. Willie Sutton use to rob banks, and he was asked by the media, "Why do you rob banks?" He said, "Well that's where the money is." That's something we can pay attention to. The money's flowing in a different direction right now.

Well, where is that money flowing? Pay attention to that question. The following will give you an example answer.

My sister has a small events business booking speakers. She was ticking along. Poof, in March, 2020 that just went away. (hopefully, temporarily) She immediately went, "Well, where's the money?" And she said, "Well, wait a minute, "people are delivering groceries." And she got on some app and then started delivering groceries with her kids (to get her kids involved). She really just followed where the money is, because some people need help with getting groceries delivered.

Follow the money. Clearly, it's not about robbing banks. It's about paying attention to where the flow of money is, and you'll be able to get through this. Particularly the COVID Campers who have been laid off recently.

You'll get your job back, or you'll get a new job.

Things will be better. Take care. Hang in there.

3 Motivational Steps on Making More Money

Posted by Vince Poscente on Wed, Jan 13, 2016 @ 04:41 PM

Want more money? Fear of something is holding you back.

Less fear = More money

Less fear equals More money photo and quote by Vince Poscente

What fears do you associate with money and what can you do to change your mind regarding money?

Step 1. CHANGE YOUR BELIEFS. If you believe: money is the root of all evil or wealthy people are greedy or you're always broke or you don't have enough money or you can never get ahead OR 1000's of other negative beliefs YOUR BELIEFS will be the number one reason you don't have enough money.

  • Sit down and list off the dozens (if not hundreds) of moments in your life where you took a negative financial turn in your life. For example, you didn't join a group for a fun activity because you lacked finances. 
  • For each "negative money moment" identify the decision(s) you made at that time. For example, you decided you didn't deserve to join the fun activity. 
  • Now identify the belief(s) you associate with each decision. For example, by thinking you didn't deserve to enjoy that experience with friends your belief is a general lack of deservability around happiness. 
  • Now picture in your mind's-eye that decision is a poisonous cocktail of fears, negativity, poor decisions and caustic beliefs. Be specific with what you see.  
  • Close your eyes. Picture that poisonous cocktail. In your fertile imagination, pour that crap into a chemical septic toilet. Flush it away.
  • Next, visualize spraying your empty glass with clean, refreshing, loving water.  
  • Finally, fill the glass with a positive mixture of empowering and loving money beliefs.
  • Rinse and Repeat! 

Step 2. CHANGE YOUR LANGUAGE. If you say things like "filthy rich, an ungodly amount of money, unbelievable wealth, stinking rich," etc., you are programming a negative association with money. At a profound level you block money from coming to you by attaching negative association with money. Rejuvinate your money language with "amazingly rich, a Godly amount of money, wonderful wealth, deliciously rich."  

Step 3. CHANGE YOUR REALITY. Here are some tips and tricks.

  • Keep a $100 bill in your pocket at all times.
  • Feel good about doing something creative towards making or saving money. 
  • Exchange your expertise for money.
  • Surround yourself with people who have a winning mindset.
  • Wake up and go to bed with "grateful thoughts."   

Think back to high school. Remember that teacher who said, "no two things can occupy the same space at the same time." Replace the mental space your fears occupy with the above steps.

You will have more money when you have less fear.

What are ways you have CHANGED your beliefs, language and/or reality around money?
