This is article #5 in the series of the six areas of support (from the book Change Anything) that will allow you to change or transform any area of your life, from over-eating to creating wealth.

Today we will talk about what Structural Motivation means.

Here is a list of the six areas:

1. Personal Motivation
2. Personal Ability
3. Social Motivation
4. Social Ability
5. Structural Motivation
6. Structural Ability

As a reminder, what I will discuss is how to apply each one of the six areas only as it applies to creating financial abundance. You can choose any other area to work on, and it will be just as powerful. It’s like you rowing a boat only on one side versus having six people, with three on each side, all rowing in the same direction. Again, these areas of support have nothing to do with willpower.

When we discussed Social Ability, we addressed the whether or not the group has the skills and abilities to support you.

With Structural Motivation you will look to your environment and pay attention to what you see. Do you see posters like a kitten hanging on to a branch for dear life? Is that how you feel sometimes?

Instead, put up a poster showing a pristine white sandy beach in Bali; with palm trees in the background; you and a mate sitting on lounge chairs, and have this represent where you could live if you didn’t have to work for a living.

Do you see a desk that is a mess of papers that reflect what’s going on in your mind? Do you walk into your kitchen and see a sink filled with dirty dishes? Do you think a clean and orderly desk or kitchen will reduce feelings of stress or overwhelm?

Ask anyone who practices feng shui and they will tell you how your environment affects you from the inside out. The authors of Change Anything demonstrate how changing your environment will support you to change in the direction you want to go.

Are you willing to hire a person who does office organization? I do.

Where can you find the people who can support changing/improving your environment?

To Your Prosperity,


Author's Bio: 

Often in the media and in a recent TEDx Talk, Rennie Gabriel supports individuals and business owners to create work as a choice, instead of a requirement, just as he did for himself. Rennie had gone broke twice (two divorces), but using the same concepts published in his book, Rennie created more wealth in each recovery than what he had prior.

As a highly rated instructor at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), Rennie uses his award-winning, best-selling book, Wealth On Any Income, to teach effective money skills from both the emotional/psychological aspects as well as the practical components. His book has been translated into five languages. Rennie is a retired Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) and often adds BFD to his credentials.

His extensive knowledge of real estate and finance is useful not only to those who own or invest in real estate but to anyone striving for a better life by trying to achieve financial freedom.

His clients range from financial professionals, like CPAs, stock brokers, and financial planning firms, to entrepreneurs in the transformational space (coaches, authors, and speakers). He also works with large organizations like the FBI, American National Insurance and Toyota Motors.

After 40 successful years in financial services, Rennie now works to donate 100% of the profits from his speaking fees, wealth programs, books and business coaching to charities, the primary one is where dogs are rescued, trained and donated as service animals for soldiers with PTSD and TBI (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries)
