Determine Your Success In Life With I Am
I promise you this: if you have the discipline to implement what I am about to share with you, your life will be transformed. More than just your business life. Every aspect of your life will change. What you are about to learn is the gateway to all forms of achievement. And, ironically, it’s also the cause of all failure. What yields so much power? Two words. Two simple words: I am.
When I became consciously aware of this, I didn’t believe it. How ridiculous, I thought! It’s way too simple. I thought saying the words I am didn’t do anything except state facts. You know, like, “I am tired,” or “I am happy,” or “I am poor,” or “I am rich,” or “I am (anything).” I thought I am wasn’t creating anything for me, it was just a way to state the truth, the facts, the reality. I was wrong. I am doesn’t reflect reality it creates it.
The Cart Before The Horse? (Me Thinks Not)
It sounds like putting the cart before the horse. I mean, if I say “I am a millionaire” and my bank account has minus $67.23 (you know, the good ol’ overdraft) I’m clearly not a millionaire. Therefore I am saying something that I am not. At first blush you would think you need to first achieve it to then, second, believe it.
At second blush, there is way more. . . the believing part comes first. When we truly believe something we act consistently with. So much so, that we subconsciously do everything we can to always achieve what we believe. If we believe we are poor, we more than just look at our over-drafted bank account once to prove it to ourselves, we look at it ten times a day and keep saying to ourselves, “See. I am right. I am poor.”
The Need To Be Right, Always
We all have an insatiable thirst to keep order in our world. When we have order we don’t have any surprise, and that is a damn comforting feeling. If you are always right, you always have order (you know what is coming) and you feel damn comfy.
The desire to feel comfortable (which is one of the ten basic human desires) drives us to always be right. And that means that when we believe something, we force ourselves to take action (including the action of taking no action) to be consistent with what we believe. We first believe it, then we prove ourselves right.
Regardless if our beliefs are good or bad. If our beliefs are benevolent or malevolent. If you believe it you will achieve it. We fight extraordinarily hard to keep shitty relationships, because we believe “I am horrible at relationships.” We go through burning hoops of fire (laced with razor blades) to keep our business struggling, because “I am being crushed by this economy.” We fight like mad dogs to achieve our belief. And if you set a positive belief, you will fight just as hard to manifest it and you will get it just as easily.
The key to achieving anything is in believing it to your core. Saying “I am rich” is not nearly enough. Believing “I am rich” is everything, regardless of what your bank account shows.
So how do you set a new belief, if it isn’t reflected in reality yet? There are seven more words that you need to say. I’ll share those in a second, but first lets talk about fevers and chills.
It’s Your Core Temperature
I am is more than just a proclamation, it’s your core temperature. I am is the definition of your true self, but it isn’t always constant. It will fluctuate, but it will always return to that core temperature.
Here’s the way to look at it: Your body temperature is 98.6 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit for my European friends. In Celsius, I think it translates to 350 degrees or something. Oh no, wait, maybe that’s the temperature of the sun). Any way, your body’s I am for its temperature is 98.6 degrees. While it regularly fluctuates, it stays around that setting. Occasionally your body has a fever or a chill and your temperature changes dramatically to kill off the disease. Once the disease is beaten, your body returns to it’s I am setting of 98.6 degrees.
If you have an I am statement, for example, saying “I am the best provider of legal services in New York,” you won’t always be. Disease (fluctuation) will occasionally happen. But if you truly believe your I am statement, to your core, your business “temperature” will always return to being the best provider of legal services in New York. Get it? Good!
Can your I am be too big? The answer is yes and no. What if you said “I am the richest person on the planet?” Is that too big? Yes it is, but only if you don’t believe it to your core. No it’s not too big, it you DO believe it to your core. You belief is everything. It’s the alpha and the omega. It’s the toilet paper and the pumpkin pie (Note: that was a test. That was a test of my blatant self promotion system. That concludes the test.).
When you define who you are, through your I am statements, you must say them and feel them constantly. Now don’t get your undies in a bunch and think that it is too hard to say and feel I am constantly. . . you already are. Look at all the the ways you define yourself right now. You are what you have and who you are, right? Everything you have is a result of what you have not only been saying to yourself, but what you have been believing consistently I am sharing nothing new with you. What may be new, is the realization that you have 100% control over it.
You can’t lie to yourself (you’ll catch yourself every time). So how do you believe something that isn’t a physical reality, yet? The trick to believing any I am statement instantly is by using an additional seven words.
The Other Seven Words
You can change to a new I am statement and believe it immediately (you have to) by adding the words “. . . and I am proving it to the world.”
I mean, if your bank account is zero right now, and you start saying “I am a millionaire” every day to yourself and others. People, including yourself, will think you are crazy. And since you don’t believe you are a millionaire, your bank account will never ever reflect it. But, if you simply add the seven words to the end of your “I am” statement, you will instantly believe it. The new statement would be “I am a millionaire, and I am proving it to the world.” Your bank account will reflect it soon enough.
Notice that the I am statement now has a second I am component that is pointing to the action. By saying you are proving it to the world, you are telling yourself that the current status of your bank account is simply a fever or a chill. You will set out to kill the disease and prove yourself right. You just need to have the discipline of saying and believing your new and improved I am statement all the time.
