Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?
“Why can’t you make more money?”
“Why do people with low ability seem to make a lot of money?”
“Why do I feel stuck?”
I’ve been asking myself a related question lately. It just amazes me how often I see my creative and hardworking friends struggling to generate the kind of income they deserve.
So I came up with practical advice that not only identifies the problem, but also provides a path forward and improvement.
Luckily I have a good friend who specializes in dealing with this kind of problem. Dr. Alok Trivedi (aka “Dr. Rewire) has spent the last 27 years of his professional life studying the deep connections between the “wiring” of the human mind and individual performance. He identified over 92 of his scientifically-backed techniques that literally helped rewire your brain to become the best version. one’s own.
Here are some that I have found particularly important in addressing the gap between competence and success.

1. Get to the root of the money-making problem
You’ve probably heard the “villain origin story.” Well, people who struggle to make money often have negative stories of their own.
Dr. Trivedi explains: ) that ultimately becomes what we do. Sometimes, this default wiring caused fear, paranoia, anxiety, and/or confusion. Perhaps it was divorce. Bankruptcy or how we were raised. Either way, this wiring is one of emotion, usually resentment, which serves as our primary expression for money. Because of this resentment, we push aside deals, opportunities, or jobs and create barriers to making money. ”
Trivedi adds that the best way to know if you have such default wiring is to analyze your emotions and situations. Are you stuck? Has your income hit a plateau? are you afraid of the future? These are all dynamics that need to be taken seriously and once they are recognized it is imperative to search for relevant past experiences. may be wise.

2. Find clarity
Once you’ve identified what created the negative wiring, it’s time to face it. This can create unpleasant feelings, but the step is important to start the process of change.
“Once you identify [that] Source, it’s time to clarify,” says Trivedi.We need to ask ourselves the following questions: What negative feelings have I continued to have as a result of this experience? [has] Did this resentment actually help me grow in life? What benefit did you get from it? It is very important to recognize that these experiences are as good as they are bad. ”
Being able to examine past events from both sides in this way gives us perspective. This is a key factor that helps the brain rise above emotions and detach the brain from the effects of experiences.

3. Gratitude leads to action
This step may seem strange at first (and it was), but a powerful question to consider is, “Should I be grateful to the source of these grudges?” The more I understood the power of gratitude, the more I came to appreciate it as a catalyst for progressing toward my money-making goals.
“Finding gratitude literally changes our DNA,” says Trivedi. “It starts with our emotions and frees us from any previous negative patterns — but only when we find and feel gratitude. This changes our beliefs. We reconnect to the core. The moment this happens, a switch flips and organization occurs. We begin to plan, create and change. understand what you need to do.
It’s a beautiful process of rewiring the brain through integration, adds Trivedi. If this succeeds, the old pattern ends and the new pattern starts. And hopefully, your new pattern will be one of creativity, wealth creation, and breaking boundaries.
