“I don’t have enough time”
“I can’t afford that”
The Thought Model, Time and Money
Guess what? The thought model applies to time and money too!
…And that’s a good thing.
I believed for many years that the thoughts I had about time and money were circumstances or facts in my life. I would say things like “I don’t have enough time” or “I have to work hard to make money” as if they were facts instead of thoughts that I was choosing to think.
As we know, the thoughts we think influence our feelings and actions while driving the results we see in our lives. When I thought those thoughts, I’d feel a certain way and take certain actions to prove my thoughts true.
A personal example? When I say “I have so much to do!”, I feel overwhelmed. When I’m overwhelmed, I often procrastinate or complain instead of doing what I need to do. The result? I do have so much to do because I didn’t do what needed to be done. It wasn’t that there wasn’t time. It was my thought about the time.
Here’s an example with money: When I think the thought “I have to work hard for my money”, I feel heavy and a bit of dread. The action I take is either to sit down and get my work done in a very deliberate forceful way or I put off working because I’m dreading it. Both lead to the same result (and proving my thought true): I have to work hard for my money. It actually didn’t have anything to do with money and everything to do with my thought.
