As I told you last time, if you want to change the subconscious beliefs that are creating undesirable results in your life, you need to take action.
But, of course, you don’t want to take just any old action.
You want to take the action that’s going to lead to the result you want.
You want to make sure that you’re pushing the right thing in the right direction.
How do you determine what that right action should be?
That’s what Step 3 is all about.
Cause and Effect
Step 3 is based on the Law of Cause and Effect, which states that whatever you send out into the universe comes back to you.
Every action has a reaction.
Every cause has an effect. And every effect has a cause.
For example, let’s take money. Money is an effect.
The abundance or lack of money in your life is the effect of something you’re doing or not doing.
Your lack of money isn’t caused by the economy or the class in which you were raised or your lack of training and education.
Those are all excuses we tell ourselves so that we don’t have to take actions that might expose us or make us look foolish or upset someone’s idea of who we should be.
Think of all the sales calls you never made, the opportunities you never followed up on, the rates you were reluctant to raise.
A myriad of actions and inactions causes abundance and the lack of it. And all of those actions and inactions create the balance in your accounts.
The same is true for every effect, every result, in your life. Every effect in your life has a direct cause.
What Is the Cause of the Result You Want in Your Life?
Therefore, it follows that every effect, every result that you want to have in your life would have a direct cause as well.
And that’s why in Step 3 you want to identify the cause of the new result that you want in your life.
It’s actually pretty simple in today’s day and age to figure this out. There’s always somebody you can ask or information you can get from the Internet.
It is a little harder to employ because it does take some effort. There’s no question about it. But figuring it out is not difficult to do.
And once you identify the cause of the result you want, not only do the actions you need to take present themselves, but you will feel empowered as well.
Because you will begin to realize that, ultimately, you are the cause. YOU are the cause of the abundance in your life, in every area.
For instance, let’s say the effect you desire is more friendships — healthy, supportive, fun, intimate — friendships.
Then the cause of that would be to look at yourself, and consider how you can take steps to BE a better friend yourself, and start doing those friendship actions on a daily basis.
Once you start taking those actions, as I’ll show you in Step 4, you will start seeing results, and you’ll feel your tremendous power to bring in as much of whatever it is that you want in your life.
You won’t let anyone else dictate the actions you take. You’ll be free from the perceived constraints of others.
You’ll be well on your way to building the kind of self-confidence that truly is unshakeable.
