I was having a conversation a few weeks ago about the subject of finances, and the subject of an old economics teacher came up in relation to the law of attraction.
Now, many of my readers know that I am an avid believer in the principle of the law of attraction. After all, I have created this website, dedicated to the very subject at hand!
Now, getting back to my point, this particular teacher (not a very good one in my view), was teaching students in a public school in what might have been termed a less than financially affluent area or locality. However, instead of giving the children the benefit of the doubt, and using the ability he had as a teacher (but did not use), he could have instilled the principle of attraction, hope and visualisation in these students.
Instead, and to my absolute amazement, this teacher simply said that no one in the calss could ever imagine the size of a pile of $1 000 000 in front of them.
However, this teacher was actually not ready for a student of his who had actually thought about this issue and had calculated the size of the pile of $100 AU Notes in front of here and told him the exact dimensions they would represent.
So, what am I saying here? Quite simply, that a student had already imagined her situation in life getting better and had already worked out
- the measurement of a single AUD $100 note,
- had then calculated how many would be needed to make up $1 000 000 and then,
- calculated the total dimensions for the complete pile of these notes.
My point here ladies and gentlemen is clear-
Even though the teacher himself could not see it in his mind and mocked the student for actually having thought about it and settled it for herself, the teacher still scorned and took fun of her.
It never ceases to amaze me how an economics teacher could be so clueless about money. However, it is not uncommon and we need to guard our own thoughts in these areas.
We attract after all, what we think about.
Have you calculated the size of the cheque you would like to be receiving for your efforts, ideas, and general contribution to society?
Knowing the answer to these issues will help you start on the path to success.
I explain the principles in a book on being able to, “I Can” here.
If you think it, you can achieve it.
I read a magnificent quote the other day, being that if you can not dream for yourself, you will be hired by someone to help them fill their dreams.
Interesting food for thought….
As an aside, I know this person who had calculated the size of $1000000. I work with her daily now….
