Does This Sound Like You? 
Everything apart from you is to blame, for the fact that you don’t have the money; the business, the perfect career, and that red Ferrari 458—you know, the one that makes that super uproar and turns everyone’s heads, leaving the crowd asking, “How did they buy that?”

You blame your upbringing, the people you grew up with, the school you went to, or even the school you never went to, you blame the fact that you weren’t born lucky, your parents never had the money, you never studied Business, the excuses go on and on.

I’m certain there are dreams within you that haven’t been given any life, because of the excuses you have been feeding yourself time and time over. You give yourself millions of reasons of why it can’t happen to you, but have you given yourself ONE reason why it can happen to you? And if you have, how much energy and thought did you give it, if any?

The truth is, if you have invested that same energy into giving yourself reasons as to why you can achieve your dreams and reach whichever level of wealth you crave, then you might be surprised to know that indeed you can manifest the lifestyle you desire. I will tell you why you’re thinking the way you are. It’s something called paradigms. These are your enemy within, they’re the reason why your dreams remain unborn, the reason why you talk yourself out of even thinking of becoming a successful person.

So, What Are Paradigms You Ask?
Your paradigms are the way in which your subconscious mind’s thinking is wired up.
Paradigms are a multitude of habits created through repetition that are stored in a deep section of your subconscious mind. Paradigms control your life, whether you know it or not.

Here’s a fact: Your subconscious mind is 30,000 times more powerful than your conscious mind. You might also not have known that 90 per cent of our actions are determined by our subconscious mind. This is why it’s crucial for you to have healthy paradigms about every aspect of your life.
Paradigms govern all your successes and your failures. And, faulty or negative paradigms are the real reason why more than 90 per cent of today’s population end up getting the same results, year in, year out.

There are days where you get that sudden gust of motivation screaming: “yes, I WILL make a change.” However, that statement is short-lived when mid-week comes and you feel as drained out as ever, lacking the energy and guidance to make a long-lasting leap to success.

You’re simply unable to keep permanent results and even if you did begin to make some change for the better, it wouldn’t last because your mind is still running on the faulty paradigms that you have installed in your subconscious mind, through years of repeating the same old excuses.

You may have heard those closest to you mention statements such as: “I’m just not destined to have money” or “money doesn’t grow on trees”, or even “success is simply not for people like me”. These statements are exactly what make up your negative paradigms. You hear these statements time and time again, until they become impregnated in your subconscious mind.

Did you know? The subconscious mind can only accept, it cannot reject. And like a virus, these paradigms live on, submerged in your subconscious and they manifest themselves through your results. It’s very simple, negative paradigms = negative results and positive paradigms = positive results.
Take a piece of paper and write down what you believe your limiting paradigms are. Perhaps you believe that money is difficult to obtain? Or, maybe that you’re too young, or too old to own a business? Or, are you someone who works year after year on the “general 18 per cent salary increase” and you simply don’t think you can obtain more?

Well, you are the only one limiting yourself. Unless you demolish these limiting paradigms, you will never achieve your true potential, and that is a fact. We are all born successful and there is certainly a recipe for becoming successful, remember—everything works according to measure.

The Super Great News
You can indeed re-wire your existing toxic, limiting paradigms that currently exist in your subconscious mind, with new, healthy and successful programmes. This will without a doubt, attract an unlimited amount of wealth, happiness and health to your life.

Remember, the only limits we have, are the ones we build in our own mind.
Are you ready to demolish the limiting beliefs and sabotaging behaviour that are holding you back?
If you want permanent results as well as permanent happiness, then shifting your paradigm is the only way to do it. And when that paradigm shift takes place, your life will change within the blink of an eye, just like that… I did it and so can you.
