Power of Thoughts – Session #5

Good morning everyone,

We’re still on the journey of learning about our thoughts on money…  What’s a paradigm?  And what’s the meaning of the phrase “paradigm shift”?

According to Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, the word paradigm means, “a philosophical or theoretical framework of any kind”.  The word shift means, “To exchange for or replace by another”.  Therefore when we put these words together, a paradigm shift is exchanging or replacing our current philosophical or theoretical disposition for another philosophical or theoretical disposition.  Now I love words, so I really want to spend some time breaking down all the words I just used, but I will spare you the boredom. 🙂

I understand some may think, “Who are you to ask me to change my train of thought, or tell me what I should or should not think?”  And that’s a valid argument, because we’re free to think what we want, and do what we want, within the confines of not intruding upon the liberties of others.  But my follow up question would be, why are you reading this forum?  No one forced you to come here, or twisted your hand behind your back, but I would venture to say that you’re here for the same reason we’re all here…  God knows I haven’t arrived, but should that impede me from making the journey to financial freedom?  Should it stop me from striving to live a financial healthy life (as I define it…)?  God forbid, therefore, we must change the way we think about money before we formalize any strategies to accomplish this task.  Reggie, you’re starting to sound like a broken record, we know this already, it’s only your 100th time saying it… 🙂  And I will continue to say it until it gets deep down into your subconscious, and into your spirit!  Because we can truly “Think and Grow Rich” (Napoleon Hill).  Matter of fact Napoleon Hill stated in this classic book, “If you are one of those people who believes that hard work and honesty alone will bring riches, perish the thought, because it’s not true. Riches come, if they come at all, in response to definite demands, based upon the application of definite principles, and not by chance or luck.”  How does one summon the power to make such request? We summon the power through our mind, which in turn creates powerful words, to create powerful realities…  We will continue this conversation on tomorrow…

Assignment of the day: What does the passage from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich mean to you?  What comes to mind when you meditate upon this passage?  Write it down! And if you feel comfortable, share it with us… BTW, I know some people may feel like sharing on this forum doesn’t make sense, especially since we average about 150 views a day, but I tell you this…  Your words are priceless!  And just because there’s an average of 150 views today, what about 1 or 5 years from now… God will bring the people; we must be faithful with a few things before He makes us rulers over much (Matthew 25:23)… Your thoughts and words will be seen, and your voice will be heard in due time…  God Bless and Take Care!
