[06:53] Embracing Abundance as Opportunities
Everyone aspires for a life filled with abundance, often equated with financial wealth. However, true abundance extends far beyond monetary riches. It encapsulates a rich life teeming with abundant health, relationships, lifestyle, spiritual fulfillment and yes, financial wealth too. This concept aligns with various beliefs, referred to as the ‘field’ in science or God, source, and the universe in different ideologies. There’s a fundamental intelligence guiding life that can deliver our desires. However, it’s crucial to remember that navigating the path to our goals doesn’t require us to decipher every intricate detail. Fixating on a rigid step-by-step plan could blind us to potential opportunities. Therefore, maintaining an open mindset is key to embracing the abundant life we yearn for.
[19:47] How to Disconnect Yourself From the Fear of Rejection
One of the ways Ben worked to disconnect from the fear of rejection was through systematically desensitizing himself to it over time. He references the concept of systematic desensitization taught by Steve Siebold, which involves gradually exposing yourself to what you fear in a controlled way to lessen its impact. In sales, Ben faced rejection repeatedly by putting himself out there more and more, which helped him realize he could withstand it. This process of facing rejection bit by bit through his actions and experiences helped reprogram his mindset around it by showing him rejection was not as threatening as he once thought. It became something he could better handle and not take as personally.
[24:24] Reprogramming the Mind: Unlocking the Power of Your Subconscious
We’re all programmed in various ways, with our brain functioning as a supercomputer. The term ‘garbage in, garbage out’ not only applies to computing but also to our lives. If we consistently generate undesirable outcomes, like financial struggles, it’s not our fault but an issue with our mental programming. We harbor unworkable beliefs that shape our behaviors and affect what we attract in life. Understanding this, the key lies in learning how to rewrite these programs at a deep, unconscious level. The subconscious mind, which constitutes 95% of our personality, dictates our thoughts, actions, feelings and even our biological functions. In contrast, our conscious mind accounts for a mere 5%. Despite knowing consciously what we should do to improve our health or increase our wealth, we often don’t act on it. This discrepancy arises when our conscious desires haven’t permeated our subconscious, leading to a mismatch. In such cases, the emotional, subconscious mind invariably triumphs.
