What if I told you that what you are experiencing in your life right

now is a reflection of what is going on in your inner world right now?

Well, it’s true. At least according to success guru and fellow

millennial, James Melouney.

What comprises your “inner world"?

Melouney, author of the book “The Art of Success,” describes the top

three things that make up what’s going on within you.

1. Your “mental world” — your conscious and subconscious thoughts,

knowledge, and beliefs about yourself, others, and the world.

2. Your “emotional world” — all the emotions that arise and fall

within you, day in and day out.

3. Your “spiritual world” — the spiritual connection you have with

yourself and the universe.

An Australian, Melouney left his job in corporate strategy to pursue

his passion of serving others by learning and sharing lessons on life

and success.

As it pertains to your inner world, he wrote in a recent newsletter:

“If there appears to be a problem in your life (such as a lack of

money), the first step to permanently solving that problem is to

recognize that you’re seeing the fruit, not the root. You’re seeing

the effect, not the cause.The symptom, not the disease itself.”

Melouney claims that if you can’t get past the initial symptom then

you may be experiencing self-sabotage, a condition that tends to

undermine most success you might experience in your life. I had the

pleasure of having Melouney on my digital news program a few months

ago where we discussed the importance of taking responsibility for

what is happening in our lives and to examine the root cause rather

than just the effect.

Some examples of harmful subconscious beliefs, which Melouney

estimates a vast majority of individuals deal with, include views on

success like: “I don’t deserve success. I’m not good enough. Success

takes too much hard work.”

On wealth: “Money is the root of all evil. Rich people are greedy.

Save your money for a rainy day. If I become wealthy then I risk

losing it all.”

And on relationships: “I’m not worthy of love. I’m too old to find

love. I’ll never be able to trust anyone.”

Melouney went on to outline that we don’t mean to sabotage our own

success, but sadly, it’s become a by-product of the way our mind


“Our mind is constantly trying to learn and understand the world so

that it can protect us and make sure we survive. How does it do this?

It moves us toward perceived safety and away from perceived danger,”

he wrote.

Of course, we form what might be considered a perceived danger from

the experiences we’ve had throughout our young lives.

Melouney admits that it isn’t an easy thing to correct. But that by

reconditioning your subconscious mind, you can ultimately achieve the

health, wealth and happiness you desire most.

We live in a world surrounded by the noise of negativity and judging

beliefs that grow within us over the course of our lives. Which is why

Melouney underscores the importance of repeating empowering

declarations and affirmations.

He suggests researching and coming up with “I am” type statements

based around the things you most want to see improvement on in and

around your life.

For example, if you desire to be promoted, declare: “I am everyone’s

choice to be the next division manager.”

Melouney suggests declaring these affirmations with conviction and

belief, and to say them several times after you wake up in the morning

and just before you head to bed in the evening.

This strategy has worked for Melouney in several areas of his life,

and the reason I’m writing about it today is because it’s also helped

me with my own matters of health and success.

We both agreed that there is something quite powerful about the spoken

word when you believe, mean, and then take action on what it is that

you say.

“This is your life to live and what you make of it is up to you,”

Melouney told me. “If you can push yourself out of your comfort zone

every day and grow a little bit, then success is pretty much

guaranteed to be yours.”
