I found this gem in a Dr. Wayne Dyer recording, and I’m going to give you the paraphrased, greatly shortened version here…
In your sleep state, your subconscious mind is busy at work.
So let’s say you’ve just gone to bed.
You’re laying there, getting drowsy… and what are you thinking about?
Probably all the bad things that happened that day – all the things you didn’t like, all the people who were rude, all the negativity you experienced that day.
But here’s the thing… while you sleep for those 8 hours, your subconscious mind is marinating whatever you’ve fed it.
So if your last thoughts before drifting off to sleep are of bills and no sales and a lack of money, guess what your subconscious is going to give you?
More bills, no sales and a general lack of money.
Yup. You know what to do.
Don’t think about the negative stuff as you fall asleep.
Instead, count your blessings. Think about everything you’re grateful for, and that includes everything you want to come your way.
Be grateful that your business is growing.
Be grateful that you are making more and more sales.
Be grateful that… whatever it is that you want, be grateful for it.
Now your subconscious will go to work to bring you those things that you want.
In fact, your subconscious will work through the night to achieve your goals.
All you have to do is feed it properly before you fall asleep each night.
