Do You Know How I Know...?
There’s a scene in the comedy movie The 40-Year-Old Virgin where two men get into a back-and-forth exchange of insults, each beginning with “You know how I know you’re gay?”
The homophobic humor wasn’t amusing to me, but the scene gave me the idea of using the back-and-forth format in a positive way...
One day, when my wife and I were stressed about money, we deliberately shifted from scarcity to prosperity thinking by asking each other repeatedly: “Do you know how I know we’re rich?”
Each time, we sifted through our current life experience for evidence of abundance and answered...
- Because we have two wonderful children.
- Because we have plenty of good food.
- Because we have supportive friends.
Soon our kids caught wind of the fun and joined the game enthusiastically...
- Because we can play all day.
- Because we all love each other.
- Because... Because... Because...
Soon we were all feeling rich, and the ebb in our cash flow didn’t seem like such a big problem anymore!
So... How do you know YOU’RE rich? (You can substitute any desirable status for “rich.”) Try it!
