In reading the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money--That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! and listening to the tapes that comes with the CASHFLOW 101 game I became aware of a 'funny' idea that must admit that I also subscribed to:
"I'll work to I'm 65, then I'll go down in salary as I am no longer working, and then I'll live off my own savings and government pension"
The thing that is wrong in this statement is that I have the idea that I'll get at lower income when I get 65. This is unconsiously planning to be poor!
I really hadn't thought of it that way.
So now I'm going through the book: The Master Key System by Charles, F. Haanel for the second time and it struck me that mabe I have another similar unconscious reality about my own mental state:
"I have my mental abilities and can improve on them, and when my body gets older, these abilities gets worse and worse and at body death, my mental abilities will be lost and my memory will be zero!"
My god! Is that planning to get worse! It certainly is and it filled me with a nice warm feeling of hope and joy to have discovered this.
