Last week I had the opportunity to go to an event put on by ClickFunnels as part of their 2CCX Coaching program. The 2CCX is a high-end coaching program that consists of online training, mastermind groups, one-on-one coaching, live events, and more. It costs $30,000 a year, so it's not for the faint of heart.
This is the first year I have been a member of 2CCX and it has been worth every penny so far. During one of the sessions, we had the opportunity to hear Myron Golden speak. If you don't know Myron's work, you need to. This guy is the real deal and every word that comes out of his mouth is pure gold.
As part of an open Q&A he said something that made a profound impact on me...
"You will rarely make as much as and you will never make more than any amount of money you think is a lot."
WOW!! I had never thought of building wealth and making money like that before. His suggestion was to start adding the word "only" in front of large amounts when you talked about it.
"We only made $1,000,000 last year." or "We only made $25,000 on that last deal."
The idea is to get comfortable in your own mind with large dollar amounts. Our mind is a curious thing. Your subconscious takes any information you feed it literally. If you view a particular amount as "unreasonable" or "unattainable" your subconscious mind will take that directive and act upon (or not act upon) it. In short, it will limit your capacity to make anything greater than the amount you deem to be "too much."
This is a very real phenomenon. Make it a point to not limit yourself with your own thoughts. Open your mind to the possibilities of building wealth and making more money. Try this exercise of adding "only" in front of amounts you think are a lot. It will change your life!
