Managing the Wealth

I received this wonderful note from one of the participants for our next Money & You, and I wanted to share the inspirational message with you…. as part of our “Entrepreneurial Stimulus”


Thank you so much for sharing your generous spirit and open heart, and for all the work you have put in to create your systems, to support so many others, and to make the world a better place.

More than 18 months ago I discovered Jack Canfield’s Transformational Leadership Council, and among all those leaders, it was your voice and Lynne Twist’s that really called out to me. And now I will get to meet you personally in San Diego in February… I am so excited.

And I am also struggling with the excitement.  Every time I open up to a new level, I fear that I will not be able to bear the intensity of the (often wonderful) feelings.  I have been so very blessed in my life already (deep love, artistic talents, creativity) and thanks to your Expansion Exercises I have just experienced how I have used clutter and disorganization to keep me lost enough not to also have Money Mastery.

It is my intention that at the Money & You seminar I will find the support to really nurture the Great Spirit in me, and like you say “break through the limits to our success”.  I would like to acknowledge that I have lots of resistance to simply doing the work of filling in the forms, and completing some assignments from the Money & Me Teleclass.  I am dialoging with the resistance, asking what it wants to tell me, and then just doing the work.

I have to adjust some of the toughest exercises for me since I have always had access to luxurious things and people as a performer.  I have a beautiful country home in France on a river with a huge garden.  I travel to my heart’s content.  With one of the key exercises, I know that I need to find someone who represents the authority of hierarchy…but I haven’t found the person yet.  It is very important for me to craft my own exercises, because my inner voice speaks to me, but also important that I DO the exercises!

I have an incredible project (downloaded from the universe) of a worldwide forum on international education from the point of view of the students. People from all around the planet can share educational resources and news, students find programs, institutions find students, businesses recruit candidates, education related services are sold.  I am convinced that you will help me discover my MENTOR from your business plan.  I am also convinced that I will help you promote the Excellerated Business School to another level.

Your network is so appealing to me… born in the U.S., I have been living in France since 1990 and working a lot in Asia (Japan, Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, South Korea).  My missions are about living beyond nationalism, and creating exchange possibility outside the currency game.  All of this has also grown and been supported by my extensive travel and international work as a performer.

DC, we also share something important to me. From a very young age, I have known that I would not have children of my own.  And yet I love young people and have many in my life.  My dear 22-year-old Chinese assistant ‘daughter’ fell in love for the first time while we were working together in Shanghai this year, and so I got to share that with her… beautiful!  And all the students in my life… so rewarding.

Already I have understood that I really must learn to manage the ‘wealth’ that has already been given to me, and learn to direct all of my resources like a master.  I am counting on you as an ally in this wonderful adventure.  From my meditations and energy work, I keep hearing the mantra WE ARE ONE.

Thank you again for your presence,

Joel Mitchell

Visualize and Affirm Your Desired Outcomes

Visualize and Affirm

Visualize and Affirm Your Desired Outcomes

By Jack Canfield, America’s Success Coach

You have within you an awesome power that most of us have never been taught to use. Elite athletes use it. The super rich use it. And peak performers in all fields are now starting to use it. That power is called visualization. The daily practice of visualizing your dreams as already complete can rapidly accelerate your achievement of those dreams. Visualization of your goals and desires accomplishes four very important things.

1. It activates your creative subconscious which will start generating creative ideas to achieve your goal.

2. It programs your brain to more readily perceive and recognize the resources you will need to achieve your dreams.

3. It activates the law of attraction, thereby drawing into your life the people, resources, and circumstances you will need to achieve your goals.

4. It builds your internal motivation to take the necessary actions to achieve your dreams.

Visualization is really quite simple. You sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and imagine — in as vivid detail as you can — what you would be looking at if the dream you have were already realized. Imagine being inside of yourself, looking out through your eyes at the ideal result.

Mental Rehearsal
Athletes call this visualization process “mental rehearsal,” and they have been using it since the 1960s when we learned about it from the Russians. All you have to do is set aside a few minutes a day. The best times are when you first wake up, after meditation or prayer, and right before you go to bed. These are the times you are most relaxed. Go through the following three steps:

1. Imagine sitting in a movie theater, the lights dim, and then the movie starts. It is a movie of you doing perfectly whatever it is that you want to do better. See as much detail as you can create, including your clothing, the expression on your face, small body movements, the environment and any other people that might be around. Add in any sounds you would be hearing — traffic, music, other people talking, cheering. And finally, recreate in your body any feelings you think you would be experiencing as you engage in this activity.

2. Get out of your chair, walk up to the screen, open a door in the screen and enter into the movie. Now experience the whole thing again from inside of yourself, looking out through your eyes. This is called an “embodied image” rather than a “distant image.” It will deepen the impact of the experience. Again, see everything in vivid detail, hear the sounds you would hear, and feel the feelings you would feel.

3. Finally, walk back out of the screen that is still showing the picture of you performing perfectly, return to your seat in the theater, reach out and grab the screen and shrink it down to the size of a cracker. Then, bring this miniature screen up to your mouth, chew it up and swallow it. Imagine that each tiny piece — just like a hologram — contains the full picture of you performing well. Imagine all these little screens traveling down into your stomach and out through the bloodstream into every cell of your body. Then imagine that every cell of your body is lit up with a movie of you performing perfectly. It’s like one of those appliance store windows where 50 televisions are all tuned to the same channel.

When you have finished this process — it should take less than five minutes — you can open your eyes and go about your business. If you make this part of your daily routine, you will be amazed at how much improvement you will see in your life.

Create Goal Pictures
Another powerful technique is to create a photograph or picture of yourself with your goal, as if it were already completed. If one of your goals is to own a new car, take your camera down to your local auto dealer and have a picture taken of yourself sitting behind the wheel of your dream car. If your goal is to visit Paris, find a picture or poster of the Eiffel Tower and cut out a picture of yourself and place it into the picture. With today’s technology, you could probably make an even more convincing image using your computer.

Create a Visual Picture and an Affirmation for Each Goal
We recommend that you find or create a picture of every aspect of your dream life. Create a picture or a visual representation for every goal you have — financial, career, recreation, new skills and abilities, things you want to purchase, and so on. When we were writing the very first Chicken Soup for the Soul® book, we took a copy of the New York Times best seller list, scanned it into our computer, and using the same font as the newspaper, typed Chicken Soup for the Soul into the number one position in the “Paperback Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous” category. We printed several copies and hung them up around the office. Less than two years later, our book was the number one book in that category and stayed there for over a year!

Index Cards
We practice a similar discipline every day. We each have a list of about 30-40 goals we are currently working on. We write each goal on a 3×5 index card and keep those cards near our bed and take them with us when we travel. Each morning and each night we go through the stack of cards, one at a time, read the card, close our eyes, see the completion of that goal in its perfect desired state for about 15 seconds, open our eyes and repeat the process with the next card.

Use Affirmations to Support Your Visualization
An affirmation is a statement that evokes not only a picture, but the experience of already having what you want. Here’s an example of an affirmation:
I am happily vacationing 2 months out of the year in a tropical paradise,
and working just four days a week owning my own business.
Repeating an affirmation several times a day keeps you focused on your goal, strengthens your motivation, and programs your subconscious by sending an order to your crew to do whatever it takes to make that goal happen.

Expect Results
Through writing down your goals, using the power of visualization and repeating your affirmations, you can achieve amazing results. Visualization and affirmations allow you to change your beliefs, assumptions, and opinions about the most important person in your life — YOU! They allow you to harness the 18 billion brain cells in your brain and get them all working in a singular and purposeful direction.

Your subconscious will become engaged in a process that transforms you forever. The process is invisible and doesn’t take a long time. It just happens over time, as long as you put in the time to visualize and affirm, surround yourself with positive people, read uplifting books and listen to audio programs that flood your mind with positive, life-affirming messages.
Repeat your affirmations every morning and night for a month and they will become an automatic part of your thinking — they will become woven into the very fabric of your being.
