I CAN MAKE YOU RICH (Series 1)
I am writing this article to take us slighly away from our usual political and social issues that bothers around Nigerias Economy constantly being displayed on our great site NVS, so we can look at ways to enrich ourselves and develop our mental sufficeincy geared towards achieving success in all our endeavours. As much as we all want a strong and virile country, we also have a great role to play in changing our mindset towards achieving greatness and riches in life. This series of article is designed to give us an hindsight into the mind of achievers and to help us develop the unshaking mindset required if you want to achieve anything tangible in life.
The very first thing you need to do to become rich is to believe that you are rich. You need to keep this in the innermost part of your mind called the subconcious. You need to change your mindset and start dreaming. The dream will help you to build the right mental pictures that can be stored permanently in your brain, without those pictures of what you want, it might be 91impossible to achieve anything tangible. You will need to see yourself living in the big house you have always envisioned and driving the big car you've always dreamt of. Your bank account may be showing zero balance now, see it having a figure with many 0's. Create in your subconscious mind the amount of money that you will like to have in your bank account, but don't set any limit to the extent you can go. Once you are able to do that successfuly in your mind, you've already become rich. Your mind is automatically programmed for success.
No one is born with riches, we all aquire it by our self determination and drive to achieve it. I know that wealth sometimes can come to us by inheritance or gift. I use to wish I was from a wealthy family and not have to work so hard to be rich, but I later learnt that inheriting some wealth will not make you rich. You can only become rich if you make yourself rich. Even winning the Lottery Jackpot may not make you rich and you are not unlucky if you have not inherited large money from your parents or valuable treasure from your family lineage. Many people have inherited so much money from their parents, but still ended up bankcrupt because they do not know how to become rich.
The mind is an important part of our existence and is crucial in the process of becoming rich. It brings up a very important component, which I will call mind programming. Before we understand how we can programme our mind to get it ready for wealth acquisition, It is importtant to sieve and carefully process what goes through our mind. The mind is a private sphere and only its owner knows it. The mind liases with the brain for decision-making and is believed to be the centre of emotions and the deepest part of one's nature. The mind is capable of intimating the brain to take various actions as far as the soul is in support of the mission. The mind can be divided into two parts; The Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind.
Your Conscious Mind is responsible for processing new queries and decisions that are not permanent. It takes in new queries and works like the computer's Random Access Memory (RAM), The RAM(Conscious mind) is the temporary memory on a computer, it takes in data for processing, liases with the processor(brain) and comes out with the decisions(Information). However as soon as the information is received, everything dissapears, nothing is stored on the RAM(Conscious memory), because it is only used as temporary memory.
The Subconscious mind on the other hand can store the processed information permanently, it works like the computer's Read Only Memory(ROM) and stores the processed information permanently, so they can be accessed and used anytime they are needed. The subconscious mind is not easily deletable like the conscious mind. This is the most important part of our existence and it is very important to get this part of the mind well programmed with the right information. If your subconscious mind is corrupt or you have wrong information stored on it, then achieving anything tangible will be practically impossible, it obeys the computer phenomenon called Garbage In Garbage Out(Gigo). That is why a lot of people makes and takes wrong decisions that drives them to more poverty rather than riches. You need to programme your mind to see, appreciate, understand, discern and cordinate riches in other to be rich.
Everybody have equal and enabling opportunity to be rich with or without money. In my last book called "Defy all Odds, A great inspirational success Strategy(September 2007, Authorhouse UK,US, www.amazon.com)." I mentioned that many people would say you need money in other to be rich, I stand to correct that mindset. You do not need money to get success, if money is what you need to get success, then what do you get after you get the success. Money is one of the products of success, just as riches is the product of a well programmed mind. I am going to show you how to progamme your mind to be ready for success and we will start by looking closely at the two different parts that makes your mind programming a success.
The conscious mind is the first of the parts as we have discussed earlier and it often relates to our day to day activities; example of such is if you have just moved into a new home, you have to figure out how everything works, where the switches are, where the bathroom is, where to position your shoe rack, the closet, how to locate the closest bus stop and even where the keyhole is. All of these learnings is done with the help of the conscious mind. It is like the eye of the mind and it looks and sometime looks again before getting used to what it is looking. Once the picture of the image has been fully digested through the help of the conscious mind, it passes the details to the subconscious mind, the Subconcious mind then takes over the decision process and stores that image permanently for future use.
Using the scenerio of the new home, you will realise that after staying in the house for a few months, the subconcious mind comes to work, it knows everything around; it knows where the switches are, where the bathroom door knob is, it knows the way to the closest bust stop and can work you through the keyhole even if its dark. The Subconcious mind does not need to be reminded again, because it has stored the details and can process the request automatically. So it is with success, the subconscious mind need to be put in the drive gear if you want to make anything tangible in the drive to be rich.
Many people might have been wondering why some people are rich and others poor. Books have been written, Lectures and discussions have been attended in the same line, however not many people have been able to discover that spark required to become rich. A rich person is some one with subconscious mind fully loaded with the pictures of success. You need to reason and act like the rich to be rich. A rich person knows how to multiply a little money, because their subconscious mind is fully operational, but the poor are experts in spending the little money they make using their conscious mind which contains pictures they see around and not the processed ones. If you learn to work and take decision in life using your subconscious mind, you have not only begin to produce riches, but you are already rich. To be continued.
