Mindset Mastery 127 – Where To Focus?

So we now know that we have two active imaginative faculties. But which to choose? Which one is most beneficial in creating wealth right now?

Centering Your Mind

Center your attention, for the time being, on the development of the synthetic imagination, because this is the faculty which you will use more often in the process of converting desire into money.

Transformation of the intangible impulse, of desire, into the tangible reality, of money, calls for the use of a plan, or plans.

These plans must be formed with the help of the imagination, and mainly, with the synthetic faculty.

A Plan For Future Action

Read the entire book through, then come back to this chapter, and begin right away to put your imagination to work on building a plan, or plans, for the transformation of your desire into money. Detailed instructions for the building of plans have been given in almost every chapter. Carry out the instructions which best suit your needs; reduce your plan to writing, if you have not already done so. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire. Read the preceding sentence once more. Read it aloud, very slowly, and as you do, remember that the moment you reduce the statement of your desire, and a plan for its realization, to writing, you have actually taken the first of a series of steps, which will enable you to convert the thought into its physical counterpart.

First Step To The Future

You now have a plan for taking the first step to your new successful future. It’s a simple step, and a meaningful one. It is the first step to the next, better, phase of your life. Take it now. You can always improve upon it later, but you will never get anywhere without taking some action for you. Put that imagination to work and achieve great things!

  1. Hi Sean, Could possibly relate this thinking to climbing a ladder. The first run (step) in always the most important because if this one is not taken then getting to the second will be ever so much harder to achieve.

  2. Writing down your desires/goals. Before you actually do it, you think, “Why is this going to help?” And then it works! And you’re like OMG…

    I have a big piece of butcher’s paper just behind my desk where I work, with my 2010 scribbled on it. It’s great to see that in mid-March 2010, I already have a lot of the major things ticked off.

    There is an explanation as to why having this stuff in writing, works. I guess it gets you to focus and see the thing in front of you – which helps with making it more real. Whatever the reason, I don’t care! All I know is that it works for me and so I’ll keep doing it!

    • Hi Lina,
      I like what you did with the butcher paper behind your desk. This way you always have it around you, others can see it (which holds you accountable) and it is a great feeling to tick things off as already achieved. Great idea!

      • Hi Lina and Renee,

        I think it’s awesome that you have your dreams, desires and goals written down where people can see them. I think this is another important factor.

        It’s really effective to write down your statement of desire. But, I think it’s even more powerful to share that with someone who will keep you accountable. If you have a regularly scheduled meeting where you have to report your progress, you will work hard to ensure you’re meeting your daily, weekly and monthly goals.

    Hi Sean,

    I agree that writing your goals down is the first step to achieving them. We need to write down a clear description of what we want to achieve; a detailed plan of how we intend to achieve our goals and we need to read these plans several times a day.

    These are simple yet very powerful steps to success.

  4. Once you write it down and read it, it becomes a tiny bit more real. And you have to know what you want to be able to write it down. So to be able to do that first step you already did some thinking about what is important to you.
    It should be a tradition to write down your plans for the New Year in the week before New Years Eve, not just making some half-hearted resolutions in the night.

  5. Hello Sean,

    “Where To Focus”? I think I have been so guilty of this in the past…focusing on too many things at once. Without giving one area of my life my full attention. I find myself spread too thinly and then burn out quickly. I need to re-group and re-focus and center my attention. Taking my imagination and putting into reality with plans (writing them onto paper) will only lead to better things in life.

  6. Hi
    Weather you realise it or not being here shows you are rich because, Rich people are constantly learning and growing and rich people THINK BIG, so focus on learning, Focus on your opportunity, and grab it.

  7. Writing down your goals to see them become reality..
    1) We write our daily goals in a diary.
    2) Then check our diary each morning.
    3) We go about our day achieving our goals from the diary.

    There is power in writing your short and long term goals..

    • Hi John,

      I think you’re right. Writing down your goals is the first step to bringing them to life. Once you put your dreams on paper, you start to bring your subconscious into play.

      Once you start flooding your subconscious mind with your goals, it’s only a matter of time until they’re realised.
