The Truth about Visualization and Wealth Building

Everyone and their grandma loves to talk about the importance of visualization in wealth building. One of the most famous quotes heard in motivational wealth videos is: ‘If the mind can conceive it, the body can achieve it’. Similar thoughts seem to be quite popular these days when people are convinced that positive thinking is all you need to progress forward.

This ideology is part of the so-called New Age movement which consists of people big on visualization and the so-called law of attraction. Today, it’s popular to believe that anything can be achieved, if you have positive attitude. The more positive your thoughts are, the more positive things you attract in your life.  This is, of course, a scam thinking and has only one goal – to take your money by promising you easy success.

While positive thinking may seem like the bomb, life does not work as simple as that. Sure, having a positive outlook towards everything will help but your thoughts are not the most powerful way to communicate with the universe, believe it or not. The actual language we use to communicate with the universe are our actions. That’s what has the most impact on the outcome. Thoughts are cheap. Actions speak way louder than thoughts.


People like the story about how Donald Trump visualise himself as the hugely successful, confident property billionaire even though he was more than a billion dollars in debt. Nice. Many do believe that similar thinking is one of the reasons for his success. Well, this method seems reasonable to accept, if you are still in kindergarten. You can visualize all you want, but if they are no actions behind, nothing will ever happen. At the same time, if your wealth goals are backed by the required effort and action in the physical domain, you don’t need to visualize at all. Which one do you choose?

We are not against positive thinking nor visualization, but we are definitely against the law of attraction propaganda which transforms people into semi-blind creatures who choose to believe that the world is all sunshine and rainbows.

In order for any problem to be solved, it must firstly be understood and you can’t do that when you close your eyes for the negative in it. It just can’t happen. You can imagine that you can be as rich as Donald Trump, if you wish. It does not matter and your wealth won’t grow a dollar more without actual physical effort.

Dump visualization. Doing is better.
