I’d be willing to bet that you've heard this thousands of times about why you’re struggling financially.

Not only that but I’m sure you've experienced it yourself…or at least you thought you did.

Do you know what it is?

One quick thing before I mention it. This is something you've been told to do repeatedly on one hand, while also being told repeatedly not to do (and get rid of) on the other.

On the surface it may seem like a good idea to get rid of one and keep the other but actually when both are used properly it’s the most effective way to achieve and then live a financial freedom based lifestyle.

And what living that financial freedom based lifestyle also means is more time to do what you love most, more time to spend with the people you care about most…and greater peace of mind so you can enjoy life more–now and a lot more in the future.

So what is it that I’m talking about?

Using your negative and positive thoughts…

And yes I did say, using your “negative” thoughts.

You see, it’s been said millions of times by now that you need to eliminate (and get rid of) negative thinking, while using more positive thinking in order to have any financial success, to include achieving financial freedom.

Not only that but it’s also been stated that you need to have 3-5 times more positive thoughts than negative thoughts in order to be financially successful.

But have you noticed that no matter how much you tried to follow this (and be more positive) that you still have negative thoughts come up.

And then did you find yourself sometimes beating yourself up and wondering, “what’s wrong with me”, because you can’t stay more positive than negative?

Have you noticed this to be the case when it comes to your finances as well? Has trying to use “positive thoughts only” helped you attract more money so you can have financial freedom?

It hasn't…right.

And it won’t whether you realize it or not.

Because there’s another piece that’s being left out…using your negative thoughts.

Therefore in order to have the type of financial freedom you want it is necessary to be able to use your negative thoughts as much as your positive ones…

And unless you do this forget about having financial freedom.


Because your negative thoughts are there as a guide to get you to set realistic expectations on yourself, others, and certainly your financial situation…and what you can do to change it.

Here’s something that’s very interesting.

Let’s take a look at a magnet. Have you ever seen a one- sided magnet? No, of course not. A magnet has both a positive and negative side…equally. There’s no such thing as a magnet that is 3-5 times more positive than negative…because if there was it wouldn't be a magnet.

Well guess what?

Your mind is the same. It has both sides, positive and negative equally. And just like a magnet attracts things to it, your mind is responsible for beginning the process of attracting things to you. And just like a magnet, your mind needs the negative (in this case your thoughts) to attract things to you…such as money and having financial freedom.

Now of course I’m not saying to go out and try to be negative most of the time. Even if you tried you wouldn't be able to…just like you couldn't go out and try to be positive most of the time.

What I am saying is to be aware that your negative thoughts serve a purpose when it comes to your ability to draw more money to you as well as achieving financial freedom.

And that purpose is what I said earlier…it guides you to set realistic expectations…

Which then ultimately helps you figure out the “how to” along with knowing what type of action to take.

Also remember this…

No matter where you are right now, and no matter what you've been through, you deserve to live a magnificent and amazing life doing what you love and with the people you care most about…

And in the process realizing that you are a very special person who really does make a difference in this world.
