Published

In this article, I share transformational tips and insights on how to Turn Passion Into Profit. We’ve all heard the saying ‘practice makes perfect’. Well, I say, ‘passion is perfection’.

Let me explain

When we are passionate about something, we come from a place of pure and unblemished desire. A place of inspiration, light, and love. The driving force is just that – a flow of positive energy that is unstoppable!

In fact, it is our inherent right to claim this divine gift and even more – share this abundance mindset with the world.

It all starts with a passionate heart. Followed by a purposeful plan.

For this particular article, I focus on achieving financial abundance through a growth and altruistic mindset.

Let’s dive in deeper!

Passion Flicker & How to Implement

When we harness our burning desire for good and lead from our truest selves, we create opportunities that can lead to great abundance!

You see, it is the passionate ones who shake things up, who challenge the status quo. The disrupters, the innovators, the change makers, and the success magnets!

In order for you to create your own success – sustain and increase – you must leverage your passion, integrate this with your pure intention behind it and adopt strategic plans that are aligned with your soul’s purpose.

TIP: To achieve success— passion must go hand-in-hand with a plan.

Purposeful Plan & How to Leverage

When passion, desire, and intention collide we are set on a course for our higher good. So, use this as a springboard to then tap into your skills and expertise from previous jobs or industries. Pull from the areas you excelled in from your past roles and parlay those strengths and areas of expertise into your new endeavor or business idea.

No need to completely reinvent the wheel! Build upon your strengths and apply the appropriate processes and best practices you are already familiar with implementing and fine-tune as needed.

The 2A’s (Awareness & Alignment) Process

  1. The Significance of Awareness

Rooted in mindfulness, awareness is the foundation. So please take stock in all of the milestones (and mishaps) that have led you to this point. And know that you are exactly where you are meant to be. Consider the steps you’ve taken to get you to this point.

Please understand that you most certainly do have the choice to up-level your career or take a turn. The choice is yours. The choice is always yours if you have awareness.

OK, now think about your current mindset. And, ask yourself: 

  • What is the catalyst for me to CHANGE IT UP?
  • Does my mindset serve the greater good for my business trajectory?
  • What does success look and feel like to me?
  • Do I have a growth or fixed mindset in relation to my business aspirations?

INSIGHT: Fixed Mindset = Failure is the limit of my abilities

                  Growth Mindset = Failure is an opportunity to grow

  1. The Importance of Alignment

When you come from a place of true intention that’s aligned with your soul’s greater purpose, you are organically paving the way to profit.

And, by merging your passion with industry best practices, along with a deep knowledge of your own offerings, your inspiration will pour out. In return, you will draw your ideal customers and clients to you. (hence, the ‘success magnet’ mentioned in the beginning of the article!)

Abundance Mindset Image

Please ask yourself the following questions to ensure alignment:

  • What is the driving force behind building my new business?
  • Am I allowing other people’s opinions or ideas to impact my development/plan?
  • Am I providing a solution to an unmet need in my industry?
  • How will I differentiate myself from my competitors?
  • Do I feel energized, inspired, and excited about my new business endeavor?
  • When trying to accomplish the goals I’ve created to get my business going do I feel exhausted, confused, or anxious?

TIP: Gut Check – A great way to know if you are aligned with your soul’s purpose in business is to see how you feel as you are doing that specific task or creating your new service or product line.

OK, Now Let’s Talk Profitability!

Profit—financially—Yes!

But, before the money can flow – profit within first! Please consider your answers to the above questions to see if you must change your mindset or if you are aligned with focusing on overall fulfillment instead of lasering in on the money itself.

If you follow this soulful approach—backed by an industry desired product or service, along with a solid business plan, the profit will follow.

TIP: Don’t chase money— instead, let money flow to you!

Tactical Business Advancement

Once you have gone deep within to make sure you are aligned with your profit path, consider setting—

SMART(S) GOALS.

I often use the SMART method when working with new clients to establish short (and long) term goals. However, I add an S to this common practice for soulful.

So, my version of this goal development formula is:

Specific – What exactly do you want to accomplish (who, what, where, why)?

Measurable – How will you know it is achieved?

Attainable – How can the goal be reached?

Realistic – Is it relevant and appropriate?

Time Bound – When can I achieve this goal?

Soulful – Is this aligned with my higher good?

You can utilize this exercise to create your new business ‘to-do’ list. Start with short-term goals first. You see, the more you accomplish on a daily basis (even small tasks) the better you feel – the more you are injecting confidence and joy into your day – therefore increasing productivity and profitability.

INSIGHT: Allow your passion to be the generator that is fueling you with positive energy to catapult you forward!

Another helpful principle I created for you to leverage is:

3 Soulful Success Pillars:

1. Self-Worth

2. Motivation

3. Consistency

  1. Increase your Self-Worth to Skyrocket your Net Worth!

In order to generate more income, we must feel worthy. Simply put, please give yourself permission to profit. Dropkick any negative attachments or guilt you may have associated with your desire to make money!

Once you remove fear, self-doubt, or limiting beliefs you clear the way for confidence and clarity to shine through your intentions. This allows you to clearly identify your strengths and build upon your areas of expertise in order to catapult you to the next level of success.

TIP: When you have a strong desire to CHANGE IT UP and create your own business (or reinvent your career), you mustn’t allow fear or self-doubt to stand in your way.

  1. Harness Your Intrinsic Motivation

Intrinsic motivation refers to behavior that is driven by internal rewards (the feel goods) instead of externally, as extrinsic motivation demonstrates. For example, this type of motivation occurs from within self – it is naturally satisfying and goes hand-in-hand with passion.

stay motivated image

Please keep in mind that extrinsic motivation can seem like the easier concept to hold onto when setting your initial goals. That’s because it’s tied to monetary incentives, but in the long run, you are better off going the intrinsic route.

INSIGHT: Intrinsic motivation is tied to your greater good— which is always the best path to profit!

  1. The Art of Consistency

Once you have identified what drives you, hold yourself accountable and practice self-discipline over and over. Also be aware that practicing patience during this process is paramount.

And, please note that when we work toward challenging goals we often encounter difficulties – even setbacks. However, if you are able to change your mindset and master the art of consistency you will eventually succeed (it’s also all about timing).

Discipline is tethered to consistency. And, both are integral components on the road to a successful business.

TIP: When you don’t feel like checking a certain task off of your ‘to-do’ list, focus on how you’ll feel when you’ve finished.

From My Heart To Yours

The information shared in this article is a snippet from my powerful course—

Turn Passion Into Profit: A Guide For The Mindful Entrepreneur. I developed this program from my very own transformational career journey. In fact, I gleaned all of my business experience – best practices and even missteps to not only create this guide but to also launch my very own successful business – Change It Up, LLC.

And remember – Intention Sparks. Passion Ignites.

Abundance Haircuts In June 2020 Image

Abundance Haircuts is a little-known sutra that reveals the negative consequences of cutting your hair on the bad days and incredible benefits of cutting it on the good days. Bad and good days for this sutra are based on the Tibetan Calendar. Dates of Abundance Haircuts are calculated according to extremely complex formulas by experienced Feng Shui Masters.

Pay attention to what day you’re picking for your next hair salon appointment – only choose good days for abundance haircuts in June.

Why Is Hair So Important?

Since ancient times, people have given hair and any manipulation of it a sacred meaning. It was thought, that through one’s hair people can connect with the Universe. Hair serves as “antennas” and “guides” between our world and the world of Heaven. And so far this knowledge has not lost its relevance. Hair connects us with Higher forces, cosmic energy, God, Higher consciousness. By connecting through the hair to the Cosmos, a person is fed by the energies of Abundance and Health.

There were many beliefs associated with hair, some of them have survived to the present day. For example: in any case, you should not get a haircut by yourself, as in this case there is a deformation of your energy field, which can lead to poor health. It is also not recommended to get a haircut on the days of a lunar or solar Eclipse: the hair can suffer, weaken, lose shine, and volume.

What Are “Abundance Haircuts”?

It has long been known that there are days when it is especially favorable to cut hair. Among these days there are days of “Abundance haircuts.”

Abundance haircuts is a special ritual to attract abundance flows into your life. It is good to say special affirmations and mantras for abundance and prosperity on this day. So you will strengthen the ritual haircut and make it a more effective and efficient force.

OM HREEM SHREEM LAKSHMI BYO NAMAHA

Or Ganesh mantra:

OM SHRI GANESHAYA NAMAHA

  • I deserve to be abundantly happy and healthy!
  • My abundance is constantly growing!
  • I always have money for everything I need!

How To Create Powerful Law Of Attraction Affirmations That Work Fast

Published

on

law of attraction affirmations image

The power of the subconscious is present within each of us. Some know how to use it consciously, but such people are few. The majority of people use this powerful force unconsciously and, unfortunately, often against themselves. If you know how to use this power, you can achieve a lot: harmony, health, wealth and success. And one of the easiest and effective ways to do it is the Law of attraction affirmations.

How Does The Law Of Attraction Work?

The law of attraction is universal and real. According to this law, our thoughts are the magnets for the desired or unfortunate events in our lives. Therefore, if you constantly repeat the same thought in your head, other similar thoughts will be attracted to it. And if you repeat several similar thoughts in your head then their magnetism is intensified, your behavior is changed and everything you thought begins to manifest into reality.

According to the law of attraction, we attract what we believe. For example, if a person thinks “I am constantly sick” or “I am unhappy and I will not be happy”, then eventually all this will be manifested in his/her life. After all, the law of attraction does not distinguish between positive and negative, it returns to you all that you send out to the Universe. Some people think that they do well when they think, “I never want to get sick,” but in reality, this statement is negative. After all, in this situation, your thoughts are programmed to feel sick, are picked up by the universe and return to you in a manifestation of illness.

The Power Of Affirmations

gratitude affirmations image

Affirmation is a short phrase containing a verbal formula that, when repeated many times, fixes the required image or set in the subconscious of a person, contributing to the improvement of his psycho-emotional background and stimulating positive changes in his life.

It turns out that the regular affirmation practice allows us to make the required changes in our lives and shape the desired reality. At the same time, this practice doesn’t require any hard work.

You can practice the law of attraction affirmations at any time, regardless of external circumstances. We have a huge number of thoughts swarming in our heads every second and, as a rule, they are unfocused and unconscious. Thoughts constantly and randomly change under the influence of the world and the existing problems.

Thus, our subconscious, trying to realize all our desires, brings to reality what we think most. After all, for the subconscious mind, there is no difference – good or bad, we do the assessment, and it just tries to fulfill what we project into the world.

How To Create The Law Of Attraction Affirmations?

The rules of creating the law of attraction affirmations are simple and everyone can create their own. There are general recommendations for compiling affirmations that we should use. And once we understand these rules, we can create specific affirmations which fit our desired life.

1. Keep Your Affirmations Personal

Writing notes image

Your affirmations should be personal. They should be a kind of self-talk to yourself. The only person you can change is you. Therefore, never try to use affirmations for changing someone else. You can affirm: “I am healthy! I am successful! I am happy! etc.”. This is due to the fact that the subconscious mind works for us and only for us.

2. Affirm in the Present Tense

The only way we can create a great future is by changing our thoughts in the present moment. The present moment contains a magical power of manifesting our reality. What we think and do today creates our future.

When we affirm in the present tense we ensure that our subconscious mind starts to work on them right away. When you say “I will…” or “I’m going to…” you’re placing your desire somewhere out there. There is no creative power in the future. Your past and future are the two biggest illusions that distract your focus. The real creative power is in the present moment! And only in the present moment can you manifest!

Therefore use affirmations in the Present tense, like: “I am healthy!”, “I am successful!”, “I’m wealthy”, etc.

3. Avoid Negative Words

When creating your law of attraction affirmations, avoid negative words such as “not”, “no”, “don’t”, “never”, “can’t”, “won’t”. When you use these words you make your mind focus on something you don’t want in life and make your affirmations negative. Instead of focusing on what you don’t want you should focus on something you do want. In this way, you direct your subconscious mind to manifest the positive results you desire.

4. Avoid words that manifest negativity

Also, when affirming your desired reality avoid words that manifest loss, something you’re trying to get away from or get rid of, such as “get rid of”, “stop”, “give up”, “avoid”, “refrain”, etc. For example, instead of saying: “I’m losing 13 pounds”, say “My weight is … (your ideal number)”.

5. Avoid “I Want”, “I Wish”, “I Would Like”

These phrases manifest a lack of something. When we want something it means we don’t have it in our life. So, when the Universe is hearing your request, it manifests it in a way that you will always want something but never actually get it. You’ll be wanting all your life for your wishes to come true. Therefore there is a big difference between “I want” and “I have”. Only “I have” has the power to bring you what you request.

6. Make Your Words Powerful

brilliant affirmation image

You should be totally passionate about what you’re affirming. Passion brings creative energy into your affirmations. Your positive emotions turn your statements into the law of attraction affirmations. Therefore the more passion and energy you put into your affirmations, the more powerful and effective they will be. Use the words that inspire you the most. For example, you can use such words as “brilliant”, “joyful”, “fantastic”, “amazing”, “wonderful”, etc. The more passion, emotions, and energy you give to your law of attraction affirmations, the faster they will work. Make your affirmations as exciting for you as possible.

7. Turn Your Desires Into Power Phrases

Make your affirmations short, direct, and memorable! This technique is also widely used in advertising. Advertisers call it “slogan“, the law of attraction practitioners call it “power phrases”.

8. Keep Your Intentions Secret

Some law of attraction experts say we should only share our goals with those people who will support them. But according to my personal experiments with the law of attraction, I suggest you to never share your goals and intentions with anyone (even best friends and family members). Keep them in secret! Every time we share our goals with somebody (even very supportive like-minded people) we take energy away from their manifestations. After many disappointments with the law of attraction techniques, I discovered for myself that my secret goals are always 100% manifested and much faster than the ones I shared with the most supportive people in my life.

Therefore, my personal recommendation is: “Keep your intentions secret and share the results with loved ones”.

Keep secret image

Examples

You can find the examples of affirmations on different subjects in the following articles:

Powerful Love Affirmations

Gratitude Affirmations For Health, Joy, Love, and Success

Boost Your Prosperity With These Powerful Money Affirmations

The Bottom Line

Some the law of attraction practitioners say that you can affirm mentally or out loud. But my personal experience has shown that if you really want your affirmations to work fast and effectively you should affirm out loud (or at least in a whisper mode). My practice showed that the focus that you keep while affirming is much stronger when you do it out loud. When you’re affirming mentally its much easier to get distracted and lose your concentration. I also discovered that the most effective way to do it is in front of the mirror when you’re looking into your eyes. Don’t forget your thoughts give birth to new behaviors that also must be acted upon and repeated to help support your desired manifestations.
