I just finished the book, Happy Pocket Full of Money, by David Cameron Gikandi, and I was particularly moved by Gikandi’s thoughts on wealth consciousness. He writes, “Once you have wealth consciousness, it will be very difficult for you not to have success and wealth. Success and wealth will follow you automatically wherever you go.” (page 5).
In other words, when you believe in all levels of your mind that you are wealthy (despite what your checking account may show), then more wealth and success will come to you. You have to believe you’re wealthy before you can get wealthy.
Which got me thinking about marketing…
Many purpose-driven entrepreneurs and Lightworkers come to me, and say that they know nothing about marketing, or that they hate marketing, or that marketing never works for them. Perhaps you think these same thoughts?
What if, just as we must do for increased wealth, we create a Marketing Consciousness – where you believe in all levels of your mind that you love marketing (even if you’re not sure how to use marketing successfully) so that marketing success will come to you.
In other words, you have to believe in marketing so that marketing can work its magic.
And I mean, really believe in it. This means no more thoughts of “I hate marketing!” or “Marketing is hard!” or “Marketing doesn’t work for me!”
Instead, pivot your thoughts to ones like these:
- I am the Director of Marketing for my business.
- I am a marketing expert.
- I am so grateful for how marketing helps my business grow.
Even if these statements do not reflect your current state, they will reflect your future state. Because you are setting your mind up for absolute marketing success!
The key here, though, is to believe in these statements. It’s an act of Faith. Stay in Faith, grow your Marketing Consciousness, and you will find that marketing is something to love, not dread.
I want to challenge you to create your own Marketing Consciousness. Write positive “I am” messages about marketing, and read them aloud every day. Listen to affirmations. Try hypnosis. Read and learn more about marketing. And correct any negative marketing-related thoughts that enter your mind.
Your Marketing Consciousness won’t be born overnight. Much like building a home, you will create your own Marketing Consciousness – piece by piece. Stick with it, remember to stay in Faith, and you’ll be so in love with Marketing and how it helps share your Gifts with the world.
