So that you may be able to consistently attract the money you want to attract and so that you may be able to hold onto enough of it to continually increase your net worth, you will want to evolve your self image into what it needs to be in order for you to accomplish those tasks.
Chapter 17 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power, is titled “Self-Image.” I open that chapter with this quote:
“Your present situation, be it one of prosperity or poverty, of sickness or health, of self-confidence and social acceptance, or frustration and failure, is an exact reflection of your self-image.”
—John K. Williams. The Wisdom of Your Subconscious Mind, 1964
Your self-image is composed of the sum of both your conscious and subconscious beliefs about yourself. Being made up of beliefs, your self-image affects what you are, what you do, how you act and what happens to you. It is a major root cause of not only what you experience, but of how you perceive what you experience. The bottom line for the subject at hand is that if you are going to create and perpetuate the financial circumstances you desire, you will need to develop the self image of a person capable of creating, and deserving of having, those circumstances.
To begin moving in the right direction, you want to start by knowing what your present self-image is in relation to financial matters. You also want to have an accurate understanding of how you really are in relation to financial matters. Then, you will want to decide how you would like to be in relation to financial matters.
Once you know in which ways you want to change and improve your self-image, you will be ready to get busy changing it. And it’s really not all that hard to do. If you’ve been following these articles up until now, you will understand these instructions for rebuilding your self image:
Visualize and imagine yourself looking, acting, performing, and living like the person you want to be; use affirmations to program in the traits and abilities you want to have; think as if, feel as if, speak as if and act as if you are the person you are striving to become.
Continue to do these things and over time you will convince your subconscious mind that you are that person. At that point, your spontaneous thoughts, feelings, words, actions and circumstances will show that you are that person. Being that new person will become as natural to you as if you had always been that way.
To the casual observer, I teach a mindset and the techniques for attracting money using mind power. And that is an accurate assessment. But more importantly, I teach people how they can become the conscious creators of their own lives, financial and otherwise. Before learning the metaphysical techniques for attracting and manifesting, most people tend to be at the effect of conditions more than they are purposeful creators of conditions.
Like them, the person you are now, in relation to money and in relation to everything else, is just a pale shadow of the person you could be with a little desire, focus, information and application.
Here’s another quote I use in my chapter on Self-Image:
“The ‘self-image’ sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment.”
—Maxwell Maltz, M.D., Psycho Cybernetics, 1960
So what is your present self-image? What do you believe about yourself? Take a good long look at yourself in a mirror. Think about your conscious beliefs about yourself, and also what your environment and behavior indicate about your subconscious beliefs about yourself. An example could be that you’ve never thought of yourself as being capable with money. Can you see how such a belief could undermine whatever mind-power work you are doing for the purpose of attracting money?
Many people have self-esteem issues. For instance, some don’t feel worthy of having abundance in their lives. Such issues often stem from early life, and so such beliefs and feelings can be very deeply ingrained. Even when people with these issues are able to get or attract abundance in whatever forms it comes, and more money in particular, they will often do things which lead to them losing what they have gained. That’s why you not only want to see yourself as capable of getting the money you want, but also as deserving of having that money. Otherwise, you will be at war with yourself, and the battleground will be your thoughts and your feelings.
Look at affluent people you know, or who you know of, who have the kind of lives and financial circumstances you want to have. What do their words, actions and habits seem to reveal about their self-images? What you will likely find most obvious are two key factors: First, they likely believe, to a healthy degree, that they are capable of acquiring abundance and a lot of money. And second, they likely believe, to a healthy degree, that they deserve to have abundance and a lot of money.
So what is the core difference between you and them? Belief. Self-image. The most important difference between you and them does not have to do with money or education or social standing. The most important difference between you and them has to do with thoughts and feelings. And thoughts and feelings can be changed.
The various techniques you’ve been learning in these articles can help you attract more money into your life, even with little or no specific attention by you to the matter of your self-image. But, when you add in this factor, and consciously work at bringing your self-image into line with the financial results you want to attain, you will not only be a much more effective, powerful and consistent money-attractor, but you will be a much happier person, and you will be a person who’s outer wealth—no matter how great it be—is far exceeded by your inner wealth.
