What Will Happen to Your Finances in 2009? 2010?

As you know, the world is having financial problems. The stock market and real estate market have crashed. Businesses are going
bankrupt. More people have recently lost their jobs than in the past 26 years.

So when will the bad financial times end? Simple.

"Money: an idea backed with confidence." -- L. Ron Hubbard

Many people are not making their loan payments, so banks have lost confidence in borrowers. They do not want to give out loans that
may not be paid back.

Investors have lost confidence in the stock market. They are worried they will lose their money, so they sell their stock.

Many workers do not have confidence in their jobs. To be safe, they do not spend much money. They do not borrow money because
they are not sure they can pay it back.

Yet, for the economy to recover, people need to have confidence.

Workers need to feel confident that they will keep their jobs. Banks need to have confidence that borrowers will pay them back.
Businesses need to have confidence that people will buy their goods and services.

For you to succeed, you also need confidence. You need to know your future will be successful.

What most people do not realize is that their confidence in the future can be created with a mental illusion.

The Future

"Future is the creation of a future illusion and the working toward that illusion to make it a reality." -- L. Ron Hubbard
(from the book, Understanding)

If you imagine a bad future, you'll look for ways to make it a reality. If you think you'll lose your job, your money or your health, you
probably will! You will certainly be miserable.

On the other hand, if you create an illusion of a prosperous future, you will also find ways to make it come true. You envision a future
where financial conditions dramatically improve. You see everyone succeeding.

By replacing a negative illusion of the future with a positive illusion, you have new confidence! When you have confidence, people
around you feel confident, as well.


Step 1: Create an illusion of what you want in the future. Anything you want at all.

Perhaps in your future you feel happier and more secure. Maybe you get more work done, earn more money, help more people or feel
healthier than ever.

Hopefully, you also imagine a world without poverty, war, insanity, pollution, crime or suffering.

Once you have created your future illusion, notice how you feel. Do you have more confidence? If not, keep creating an exciting,
prosperous illusion until you do.

Step 2: Start making that illusion into a reality.

What can you do in 2009 to make your illusion real? What can you do this month? This week?

What single thing can you do right now, that changes a tiny part of your illusion into reality?

Do that single thing now and you are on your way.

Happy New Year!
