Words of Power

Do you ever use words or phrases like:

“Capitalist” or “the rich” and have negative thoughts?

Do you ever feel jealous of other people when you hear of their increase in wealth from a win, will, pay rise, or the creation of their own business?

Do you ever feel envious or jealous of their success and increase in wealth?

These are mindsets that need banishing. The more that you are happy for people when you hear of the large amounts of money they earn or acquire the more you feel happy and feeling happy feels good, therefore you will feel happy more. You will also be focusing of their success rather than feeling bad about something wonderful that has happened for them.

If you have envious or jealous feelings when thinking about money you are having negative associations about money, that is bad and again needs banishing and replacing with happiness for other people’s success.

Do you focus on the lack? Do you focus on what you don’t have or the debts you do have?

If you are spending your time looking for lack you will find it! If you spend your time focused with confidence and tenacity upon becoming rich you will find that.

How much power do you let words have over you?

It is important to recognize how you feel with regards to words that describe concepts about wealth, riches and money.

If I say to you: “Tax free”. How does it make you feel? For most people the phrase ‘tax free’ gives them a good feeling.

What about if I say: “The tax man”? Do you have the same kind of feelings? The phrase ‘the tax man’ gives most people a negative feeling.

If it’s too large a leap to have a good feeling when thinking about the tax man then have a neutral feeling boarding on happy. Take out the emotional sting to it. (You can use the N.L.P Spinning technique Created by Dr Richard Bandler for this)

What about words like:

  • Investment banker
  • Money
  • Gold
  • Hedge fund
  • Born with a silver spoon…
  • Funds
  • Tax
  • Finance
  • Rich Kid

How do these words make you feel? What power do they have over you?

Knowing the thought patterns of the rich and actually thinking that way are two very different things. You can use the N.L.P Spinning Technique to remove negative feelings around money.

    Hi John, the spin technique, that’s really cool and lots of fun. I have always known that NLP and the related techniques really work but this one I’ve not heard of before. Kapow – what a blast. It puts a smile on your face as soon as you do it and it’s interesting because when you first notice a positive feeling about something, you notice that it is already spinning in the direction you said to change the negative feeling to go in (if that makes sense). What a fun and quick way to change your life, forever.
