I saw the word “simulator” while reading a book recently and my soul lit up with memories. As a former Navy helicopter pilot, I know simulators. Loved them in fact. I got really good at administering them as a Standardization Pilot ensuring pilots entering or returning to the fleet were fully qualified. I was hard on students in the simulators as an instructor, because we needed to prepare for worst case scenarios out in the real world.
Until seeing the word in the book, I hadn’t seen that I adopted the simulator mindset to what I teach around “wealth mindset.” The Wealth Transformation Journal (WTJ) is really a visualization and tactile simulator. It’s a way to see and feel into the next level of wealth and success you want in your life. Instead of worst case scenarios like we had in the Navy, you simulate a best case scenario for your life ahead.
At the beginning of the WTJ there is a long description of how to choose a goal/intention that is at least 50% believable and how to use the journal as a guide to experience and track your wealth expansion. One of the keys is a question you can walk in each day…What would it feel like to be at your next level? Wear the answer like a well-worn and well-loved coat. Be mindful not to take a big jump in your goal to the next level…you could flame out your own engine.
An example would be choosing a goal of making $100,000+ next year when you’re making $28,000. It’s not a bad goal. You’ll just need a lot of power, belief, to get there IF, BIG IF, you don’t set some intermediate goals. The same is true if you made $600,000 and shooting for $2 million. I walk both types of clients through a simulation type process to establish the intermediate goals that opens them to greater creativity., What I’ve seen with myself and countless others is that a dream too big paralyzes us and leads to inaction. Through the simulation, I’ve actually seen them exceed their goals, which is so fun for me to witness.
So, I LOVE the word simulator and pairing it with “The Wealth Simulator.” Stay tuned as I will be sharing more tips, tools, techniques and some fun military stories along the way.
