The Law of Abundance
by: Brian Tracy

We live in an abundant universe in which there is sufficient money for all who really want it and are willing obey the laws governing its acquisition.

There is plenty of money available to you. There is no real shortage. You can have virtually all you really want and need. We live in a generous universe and we are surrounded on all sides by blessings and opportunities to acquire all we truly desire. Your attitude, of either abundance or scarcity toward money, will have a major impact on whether you become rich or not.

The first corollary of the Law of Abundance says that, "People become wealthy because they decide to become wealthy." They become wealthy because they believe they have the ability to become wealthy. Because they believe this completely, they act accordingly. They consistently take the necessary actions that turn their beliefs into realities. And you can always tell what your beliefs really are by looking at your actions. There is no other way.

The second corollary of this law says: "People are poor because they have not yet decided to become rich." In the book, The Instant Millionaire, by Mark Fisher, the old millionaire asks the boy who has sought his advice about becoming a millionaire, "Why aren't you rich already?"

This is an important question to ask yourself. However you answer this question will reveal a lot about yourself. Your answers will expose your self-limiting beliefs, your doubts, your fears, your excuses, your rationalizations and your justifications.

Why aren't you rich already? Write down all the reasons you can think of. Go over your answers one by one with someone who knows you well and ask them for their opinion. You may be surprised to find that your reasons are mostly excuses that you have fallen in love with.

Whatever your reasons or excuses, you can now get rid of them. The world is full of hundreds and thousands of people who have had far more difficulties to overcome than you could ever imagine, and they've gone on to be successful anyway. So can you.

Now, here are two things you can do to apply this law immediately:

First, imagine that every experience you have ever had with money contained a special lesson that was designed just for you to help you to ultimately become financially independent. What are the most important lessons you have learned so far?

Second, analyze yourself honestly and determine your biggest block, your major self-limiting belief that holds you back from becoming more successful financially. Resolve to act from now on as if this block no longer exists.

Fitness on the Road: Just Say Skip It

If you find yourself traveling a lot but you're unable to take along much more fitness equipment than your good intentions, here's the ideal solution: a jump rope. Using this one piece of gear is a fantastic way to burn calories and lose weight, and you can jump rope at your own level of intensity for any length of time. In fact, in only 15 to 20 minutes you can elevate your heart rate, work up a major sweat and get an overall energy boost.

From Muhammed Ali to Rocky Balboa, any boxer will tell you that skipping rope isn't something just for little girls on the playground. Few other exercises build timing and rhythm the way jumping rope does. It's a complete cross-training workout that combines elements of cardiovascular and endurance training with muscle strengthening. While you probably know how great jumping rope is for shaping the calves, glutes and quads, what you may not realize is that the constant turning motion of the rope will also tone your upper body.

Getting Started
If it's been a while since you last picked up a jump rope, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, coordination doesn't always come easy, so be patient. Second, when selecting a jump rope, the proper length is important: Stand with both feet on the center of your rope. If the tips of the handles reach chest level, this is an appropriate length. Finally, jumping rope barefoot is not recommended; proper shock absorption is necessary to reduce the risk of injury to your feet and ankles, so wear an athletic shoe with lots of cushioning.

Since jumping rope is so aerobically demanding, the best way to build stamina is to use interval training, which alternates periods of work and recovery. For example, jump rope for three minutes followed by marching in place. Repeat this four or five times and before you know it, you'll have completed your workout.

The Moves
All jumps start with the rope behind you, next to your heels. The speed of the rope comes from your arms rather than your feet; your feet follow whatever pace your arms set. Be sure to not flex at the wrist while turning the rope. Try to keep the wrist as a natural extension of the forearm. Here are four easy moves to help you get started:

Two-Foot Landing
This is just as it sounds. You'll push off your toes and land on both feet, bending slightly at your knees and pushing off of your toes again for the next jump.

Heel Dig
Jump on one foot while you place the opposite heel on the floor in front of you. As you bring the rope around, switch feet; continue to alternate as you jump.

Cross-Country Ski
The pattern is identical to the placement of your feet in actual cross-country skiing (one forward, one back), except you need to jump a little higher to clear the jump rope. In the landing position of the jump, you will open your legs in a stride position and then switch legs as the rope comes over your head for the next landing.

Jumping Jack
This is just like the jumping jacks you remember from fifth grade gym class, but the key is to coordinate the jump with the turning of the rope. Turn once with feet together, once with feet apart¿and be careful not to bring feet out too far to the side or you risk catching the rope on them.

Stay Open To Trust

“When I grip the wheel too tight, I find I lose control.”

-- Steve Rapson

WE SEEK TO CONTROL OUR LIVES WHEN WE DO NOT TRUST, WHEN WE DO NOT LOVE. Our ego, perceiving itself to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control in an effort to protect itself.

At the root of our need to control, we find FEAR. It may be fear of the unknown. Fear of not coping. Fear of loss. Or possibly even fear of looking stupid. And as our efforts to control other people and events invariably fail, our fear increases.

Trust, on the other hand, is a quality of the soul. While control is a tool of the mind, TRUST AND FAITH ARE ASPECTS OF THE HEART. Trust comes with the deep knowing that we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. When we trust enough in life to give up our need to control, we can relax and open to the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind.

"The only real security in life lies in relishing life's insecurity."

-- M. Scott Peck

"Do not abandon trust when your ego thinks things should be different than they are."

-- Wayne Dyer
