Target Brainpower for Financial Growth

eweber   October 23, 2008   19 Comments

Have you felt bombarded as waves of financial failures intensify? It’s hard not to be drawn into the swells that wash away chunks of security with each ebb and flow. Newscasts splash doom across our TV screens while  anchors toss human fears into darker waters daily, with chilling predictions of harsher storms to come.

In the media and in our lives, we watch retirement funds melt away, homes foreclose, jobs flee to arenas beyond our reach, while at the same time, solutions slip like seaweed sweeping out to sea. 

On the other side of fear lies profit, if you see risk as a possibility though.  If you stake your financial future with powers of the  human brain in mind. How so?

Seek solutions and you’ve already opened mental spigots for prosperity’s flow. Attach wings to your best investment idea, and at that point you’ll launch a surer successful journey. Brain fueled venture capital begins where you sit now,  and propels you to where you’d like to stand one year from now.

Amazing financial gains come  to those who first project targets on screens that lie in back of human minds. Follow-up these monetary targets with action, and you’ll capitalize on more brainpower to regain fiscal security in mind-bending ways.

1. Rewire your brain‘s plasticity by investing a buck a day and with each dollar’s growth record your dividends. Soon you’ll find more to save simply because you’ve taken that first risk to grow in spite of turbulent times. When the brain sees and acts more on growth, regardless of past failures felt, you add synapses for more of the same.

2. Transfer serotonin in your brain into prosperity in your bank account. Your amygdala leaps in to help you here,  whenever you sidestep hints of failure in exchange for new zip that deposits a sense of adventure and risk.  It’s a brain way to help you reignite that oomph to act on profitable ideas, and to invest wisely.

3. Capitalize on interpersonal intelligence by inviting a financial guru out to lunch. Toss out a two footed question, such as In my situation what would you do to secure financial growth? … over hors d’oeuvres, and prepare to act on life-changing answers.

4.  Build new neuron pathways toward lasting wealth that’s accompanied with economic strategies for coping. The brain is equipped to help you rebound financially, provided you can get past the anxiety aroused by constant news of fiscal failure.

5. Replace vents about financial failure, with innovative strategies for fiscal growth from trusted investors. Start where you stand now, add a target for where you hope to be in a month, and take the next step to reach that new target. Change takes risks to reach across challenging chasms that hold many people back. Punch out the panic and ratchet up your bottom lines through stimulating dendrite brain cells and you’ll fuel your brain for financial solutions that many crave.

In times of financial failure, the locus of growth is really with you – and less dependent on lean markets than on rich resource  within your mind. Carry critical lessons from your past, and become a master of your fiscal destiny. The opposite is also true. You’ll sink like a torpedo into drooping markets and media’s gloomy predictions,  if you fail to mine  rich mental gems you already possess. It’s really a matter of hitching your wagon to a new star.

If you took a vibrant new stand today, what would you do differently tomorrow to reach that star?

    I think the most important thing we can do when it comes to the future is STOP GAZING AT THE PAST! Kinda elementary, I know, but it never helps to spend a lot of time pining over what’s been lost, you know?

    Besides, something most people don’t think about is this: No matter how much you’ve lost (assuming you’ve lost value in your portfolio), the fact is, you’re NOT going to need it all at once, right?

    The truth is, there’s still plenty of time for those portfolios to rebuild. Panic just makes you do stupid things, so the best thing to do is wait it out.

    In the meantime, begin with step one above and work your way down the list. In a few years, you may be a lot further than you think!

    Bob, you always say it far better than I do and I love the way you add humor that works! Let’s race you to the peaks!

    Thanks also for the way you tend to bring so many good people along with you enroute to new adventures! You inspire us all in the process!

    Ellen, wiring ourselves for new risks, and stepping out daily as we focus on what we can achieve really changes every thing.

    One of the inspiring things about the Great Depression was that people were there for each other. I can remember my mother and other family members telling me what it was like. They didn’t so much focus on the event once it took place, but found ways to “make it” in spite of the circumstances around us.

    People who focus only on “hard times” will find it hard, indeed!

    Spoken like a pro and thanks Robyn. Your mother sounds like an amazing person, and tough times tend to bring out the genuine humanity in people like her. Let’s keep looking for the talent in this time that can offer ideas to help us to “make it great” now that we have seen such huge gaps in our financial system.

    It will take genius – and hopefully we’ll also find the “will” to follow the most humane pathways to more holistic wealth with mutual dividends! Thanks for your own leadership along the way!

    Most investors have lost notional value. Speculators have lost money. Value will rebuild. I shall go with Warren Buffet who says that he will buy American Equity.

    I would continue to be a conservative investor and not be tempted to speculate ever. Positively, I would start buying blue chips that earlier I could not afford.

    Looks like good advice to me, Rummy! I am with you on this one. Thanks for sharing your ideas about Warren Buffet too. He certainly has done some things well lately, and the evidence shows:-)
