Frame Of Mind

Last Update: November 05, 2016

I've gotten a lot of comments lately about how positive and confident I am. I know I'm a positive person, I strive to be that. I've never really given much thought to what other characteristics that would cause me to have. Or at least appear to have. Sometimes I don't feel as confident as I seem to be apparently. I'm sure you can relate to that. Sometime I'm just plain worn out and want to hide under the cover for a few days. But I don't. Maybe that's the difference people see. I've known some people who quite literally withdrew and hide when "to exhausted to keep going." I've crashed a few times, which is my body taking over and telling me to slow down or else. But never withdrawn from everyone and everything. That would be part of "Not Quitting" to me.

I was wondering what some of you thought about this. What is the point of being determined to reach a goal, if there's a point when we can say it's to much? We can't take it, it's to much work, or whatever the breaking point is for somebody. I feel a bit humbled by all the compliments I've been getting. But at the same time, I'm hearing a lot of things that concern me from quite a few people. I would love to share how to focus and re-program your subconscious mind so that you're staying on track to your goals. But all I can do is share what I've done. I'm not all that special really. I just learned a few things, some the hard way, about keeping my focus.

Here's something I posted, a little quip I set on a picture into my pintrest for business. Isn't that the point of all this work we're doing? To be free of Normal? How hard must it be, to keep yourself focused on that?

No one has ever accused me of being normal, Rebecca. Some have tried to make me normal, though. Lol.

Rebecca,

Are you currently making profits from Affiliate marketing?

Hey there . . . Your question kind of hit me. I am not making money yet, but that is more on me than on Wealthy Affiliate. I had an interesting three months where I actually left a very comfortable job, and salary, and kind of was "forced" to find a new job. That took every ounce of energy, and a lot of time, but I have landed in a new position. Now I am just trying to get back to my website building, and that hasn't been easy. Perhaps your question is just the impetus I need. Thanks for asking it. I had made a lot of progress, but certainly have stalled.

I'm glad this was helpful to you. I have to take myself back to the basics sometimes too. It helps to always remind ourselves of the passions beneath what we're doing. Greed is not the passion that drives me. I hope it's not anyone's passion. Those you love and the freedom you'll gain, are common reason why. Even though, even those can still be very different for everyone. I no longer have a job. What I call, just over broke.

I wish you well in all your endeavors.

So why would we want to be normal? I certainly am not normal - but albeit also not too crazy

Deep thinking this morning. Your perspective and quote is so 'right on'. Setting goals keeps us alive and forces us to not drop into apathy. If we focus too much on the goal we become driven. Neither of those is good for health, wealth or peace of mind. In my opinion, everything is to be done within what is correct for us. Some need recognition, some need peace and quiet, some need power, some need to be surrounded by friends and some just want to play. I do not "normally" buy into things that label me. But, having said that you may find it fun to check your color code. I am a RED. Driven. So, I work on spontaneity, Fun, relationships and other areas that are not as easy for me but in the end are very rewarding. IF you want check out https://www.colorcode.com/about/
Having said that, I will work to attain success in my newest endeavor, affiliate marketing. People like you are so inspiring. Your approach, your openness and willingness to help is refreshing. This community is different from ANY company or group I have been part of. Thank You. For me, it is not all about the money. I love being busy, helping others succeed and technology. So even knowing I am driven can be moderated by who I really am.
Just sayin' LOL

You'll take what motivates you and run with it and that's cool. I'm concerned about people I've talked with that don't seem to know how to stay focused or motivated. I want to help people, as you said you do too. So it bothers me when I fell like they may fall through the cracks because they just don't get it. I love to let myself dive all in sometimes. It make things get done. But that's because I know what I'm trying to accomplish. I have a clear picture of where I'm going and why. I try to explain this to them and some just don't get that they need to have their clear picture too. I'm sure you know what I mean.

Hey Rebecca, it is great to have dreams and goals, for without them we really have no purpose in life. However, when we pursue them to the point where they begin to take their toll on us or our relationship with others. it's time evaluate ou priorities. If we allow our goals and dreams to harm us physically, then we can not continue to chase them, and no matter what, people are always the most important. John.

I don't necessarily agree. Maybe you misunderstood me. Because it depends on the people you're talking about. Some people are negative and are never going to do anything but hold you back or keep you down. You need to let them go! If they're the people who you are losing, good riddance. Now, if you're talking about your loved ones, that's different. I let go of my ex because he was a psychopath. You can't tell me that was a bad thing. My son who lives with me may not understand me all that well, but he supports whatever I do. He would never tell me not to pursue what I'm working towards. Our relationship is solid. As for my health, I'm fine. My last check up, my doctor was very happy. So I don't think you need to worry about my crazy hours and lack of sleep for a few day when I'm on a roll. It's just the way I am and I know it's the way other people are to. My goals aren't just important to me. They're everything to me right now. It's time.

Great post, Rebecca! It would be nice if we all chase our dream eve though we have to pay th price!
Reply
Becka56 Premium
But that's the point my dear. We do. Nobody ever got somewhere without paying a price for it. But you learn that the people that you loss along the way you're petter off without and the things that held you back, you can do without. You make sacrifices to succeed. Because no matter what, it's worth it in the end. In the long run they were sacrifices at all.

Normal . . . From time to time I try it, but find I have to divorce myself to be so. Better to just be me ;-) Good post; thanks :-)

I can relate. Normal isn't something I do well either. Why try to fit into a mold that isn't yours?!

Cool blog mate, And I have just got a mentor Robert Hollis, he is well documented, so he has proof of his successes and that of his students. Look him up maybe?

I don't need a mentor. I think you missed the whole point I was trying to make here. I'm concerned for those who don't have the right frame of mind.

It seems to be a familiar theme among us. medical issues and crap that keeps getting in our way. and we push ever forward anyway. How to instill that in others is the question.
