I had a great week! One of Resume Energy’s clients accepted a job offer, and is going to earn more money than from her previous position. That’s a marvelous testimonial! Yeah!
Besides interviewing some great people, and learning about the incredible jobs they’ve have, writing some creative and energetic resumes, and planning the 2012 Career Fair and Job expo, I found some time to learn some startling concepts about money.
For those who are getting to know me further, you know I can’t wait to share with whoever is listening. This week’s topic is SOUL shifting. It’s all about MONEY, M-O-N-E-Y, and prosperity thinking.
Because it is so INFORMATION heavy, there will probably be two or three parts. What does money and resumes have in common? A resume is created to open doors to an interview. The successful interview lands a job. That job pays you money. Don’t you want to learn how to keep that money flowing?
According to this e-book, “How to Solve All Your Money Problems Forever”, by Victor Boc, there is a two pronged method to solving all your money problems. He says utilizing a simple but effective program, anyone can increase their cash flow to levels they have only dreamed of. Victor Boc’s newly revised and hugely successful, life-changing book is a step-by-step plan for ending money problems and achieving prosperity.
Boc’s proven two-pronged method teaches the reader to harness the forces that control the flow of money. The first step involves visualization and affirmations-because, as Boc explains, until you know exactly what you want and ask for it, you won’t get it. The next step involves giving money away, did you hear me, giving money away, is the way to “prime the pump” and get the flow of money headed back in your direction. He calls it glad giving. By putting this method into action, thousands of people have achieved financial success.
Now of course there are skeptics, who think his work is ridiculous. One of them shared this in a review of his book: “Such books are just pure nonsense meant to make money for the author and cheat people who don’t know anything about finance, accounting and economics. He recommends, going to business school and studying about finance- the hard and usual way. He goes on, there are certain things in life that you can’t shortcut, be more practical instead. If you don’t have the time, just attend a short course on finance and accounting, and you’ll know what I mean. Please he says; do not waste your money or precious time reading such nonsensical books”.
But thank goodness we all have choices. I say, read it and make your own decision. This is what I learned from reading the text, and what I have done immediately, to “solve my money problems forever”.
Boc says, money is something, and even though it means different things to different people, it is something, and it must be subject to the same laws of physics that all other “some things” are subjected to. That’s the ENERGY stuff I love. Physics is an exact science. The laws of physics apply unerringly to the wide range of matter, activities and situations found in our universe. The laws that govern our physical world are IRREFUTABLE. In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton published what have become known as Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. These laws describe the effect that forces have on objects. In the domain of common, physical interactions, these laws have proven to be a reliable formula for understanding and predicting motion. Briefly stated, Newton’s three laws are: 1) A body remains at rest unless it is acted upon by an unopposed force. 2) An unopposed force causes the body to accelerate in the direction of the force. 3) Every force there is an equal and opposite force.
Victor Boc, then used a kite that is being flown in the air to help visualize how two opposing forces can act on an object. In order to keep a kite in the air, (flowing) you must have the wind pushing the kite away, and you must have a string pulling to pull the force toward you. If the wind is stronger, the kite goes up higher, if your pulling of the string is stronger the kite comes toward you, but if you are pulling and the wind is pushing is equal the kite stays in the air. This he says is what happens to the “essence” of our money. You must realize that we are not talking about a pile of bills. The forces are labeled attractive force (the force drawing money toward you) and repellant force (the force pushing money away from you. If your attractive force is equal to your repellant force, money neither moves toward you nor away from you. You are just getting by; every dime that comes in goes back out again. When your repelling force is greater that your attractive force; money flows away from you. Every day, you go deeper and deeper in debt. When your attractive force is greater than your repellant force; money flows in your direction. No matter what you do, you continue to get richer. We all know people like this, who just seem to always have money. Now this is the simple fact, once you realize that these forces exist you can CONTROL them. To have money, all you have to do then is to create and maintain a positive flow of money in your life. And I don’t know about you, but that is what I want, a positive flow of money in my life.
The author shares that many factors contribute to attracting money to you, and many factors contribute to repelling money from you. He then gives you a detailed explanation on how to increase your attractive force and one that will decrease your repellent force. That’s the heart of this book. No matter what your current financial situation, the author declares, that if you use this two-prong method, you will generate a positive flow of money into your life. The two ways are always using positive affirmations and glad giving, and of course we all know that a prosperous life involves many factors: your income, your expenses, your debts and your money management skills. But get this, he says that many of us are addicted to money, and as a result we exhibit addictive behaviors around money, that serve as the repelling force or (wind) that keeps it away from us.
These subtle addictive forces influence every aspect of your life, and repel money. Any compulsive need characterized by an emotion back demand. A person caught in an addiction insists, with emotional fever that the demand be met. The mortgage or rent is due by the 1st of the month and it’s the 7th, what happens to you and your body? Just typing these words, increased my blood pressure! Our society inundates us with subtle media messages designed to create a feeling of dissatisfaction that fuels this addiction. Every day, people of all ages are bombarded with advertising whose message is that they are only sexy if they drive a luxury car, desirable only if they look like a movie star, happy only if they marry the person of their dreams, and respectable only if they earn millions. Addiction develops easily in this social environment. Addiction to money has become so prevalent that it passes for a normal state of affairs. When you are addicted to something and cannot have it, you feel bad. If you get it and then lose it, you want it again, and you feel bad again. No matter what the object of addiction, unhappiness is inevitable. If the addiction is severe, obsession fills your reality. Your see your place in the world as a soldier, struggling to maintain a sense of balance, fighting to regain control of your destiny. Desire lingers beneath everything you do. Everywhere you go, your addiction waits you. Addiction steals your freedom, badgering you with visions of catastrophe. In extreme cases, addiction locks you into isolation. You shun friends, family and responsibilities. You see one thing only; the object of your addiction. This object demands all your attention. You arrange your life to accommodate your desperate search. Your first thought in the morning and last thought at night is a contemplation of how to fulfill your addiction. Nothing else is of any consequence to you. What I am trying to bring forth is that so many of us are in this state, and that becoming aware of this is the first step. Get the book and learn how to apply the principles in your own life. I did, and I truly see results.
For little over a month I have followed the approach and guess what, well I just checked my savings account balance and there is something in it even after I paid my mortgage, my son’s car note, bought my niece a case for her Kindle fire, hosted my family circle with some drinks and beverages. Picked up two warehouse packs of pampers and pull-ups for my granddaughters, and even bought them new pajamas. Gave my God daughter some money toward her prom festivities, my paper buddy a tip for standing out in the rain and always giving me my paper with a smile, bought two big watermelons that were sweet as can be, paid to get my hair done. Repaid my aunties back money borrowed, paid my car note, bought some paper and folders for my resume energy business, and have gas and toll money to run my car back and forth to work. Oh, don’t forget, I paid for my doggies prescriptions. This is real stuff. The two prong method is working.
Victor, I did add another prong to this method. I wake up each morning, believing in a divine power. I believe that God is my source and my supply, and my CEO of my life, not my job, not my employer. I stand firm in my belief that I was created in God’s image. I will succeed in whatever I envision to do. I know that I will be ALRIGHT, each minute, each hour, each day, each week, each month, and each year, that I have breath in my body. Christians practice tithing but we have to start using more positive affirmations to keep that money flowing (currency).
My best regards!
