You'll NEVER Succeed Without This
I'm on the deck looking at the ocean and I just finished a pretty intense conversation with one of my students. I do private mentoring.
And It got me to thinking and thought I would share my thoughts of one part of that conversation.
During our conversation he asked me this question "How come you seem to succeed at anything you put your mind to?"
And I had a very simple answer "It's my mindset"
The ONLY difference I have compared to many people is my mindset. I have spent years developing the mindset that there is no challenge I cannot overcome.
The word quit is not in my vocabulary. And because it's not in my vocabulary it's not in my thinking.
I have challenges, and I have then almost everyday. But when I have a challenge I don't look at it like "Oh great here we go again another challenge"
I look at like "ok here's something I did not anticipate, no big deal, that's life. Ok let's get to this, what can I do to solve this challenge and have fun doing it"
I devote all of my energy to solving the challenge, no matter what it is. I solve it and I move on.
But I use to be of the mindset when things came along and I would spend 90% of my time bitching and complaining about my challenges and not trying to really solve them.
I played the victim and I was more than happy to tell my victim story. And then one day, something inside me changed.
I decided I no longer wanted to be the passenger in my life and just watch what was happening. It was time I was the driver and take control of my destiny.
And that was over 25 years ago.
And since then I have still had challenges, hell it took me 3 years to make my first money online. But I never gave up, I can't - it's impossible for me.
Look this may sound cliche - But if I can do it anyone can.
I built my online business well before all the tools, resources and support of the WA.
I see people wanting to give up, and I don't get it. Really I don't.
One of the big reasons I see a lot of is "I don't have time" or "It's to hard"
If you truly want to change your destiny you'll make time. Even if it's only 1 hour per day, that one hour can and will bring you closer to your destiny.
And of course it's going to be hard, anything worth accomplishing is going to be hard.
When I was first starting with my first business, I sold my car to keep it going. And then three months later a guy came and offered to buy my company. And I sold it for a nice profit.
Now what if I was not willing to do whatever it took to keep my company going? I would have missed that opportunity.
If you have these words in your vocabulary "Quit" "I Can't Do This" "This Is To Hard" "Impossible" "I'm Not Smart Enough"
Or ANY word that is negative and puts you down.
Get them out of your vocabulary right now, they're serving you no good.
They're holding you back and guaranteeing your failure.
Or maybe you prefer failing.
Do not underestimate the power of words. The words you use with the conversation you have with yourself is determining your destiny each and everyday.
If you're constantly having a shitty conversation with yourself everyday, and I'm taking about that inner dialogue you have with yourself everyday.
If you're constantly telling yourself you can't do things or things are to hard - you'll never accomplish anything. So don't be so surprised if your life is not the way you want it to be.
But if you change your inner conversation to one of telling yourself you are unstoppable, and you can overcome anything - watch how your life will change.
And no change is not easy, you'll need to work at it. You need to educate yourself on how to develop the proper mindset and work at it each and everyday.
One book I highly recommend is the Awaken The Giant Within by Anthony Robbins. I lost count how many times I have read it
Actually the 30 day personal power tapes from anthony robbins is the first thing I used to change my life. And I still listen to them to this day.
Wow tapes, tells you how long ago I got them.
You can be a victim the rest of your life or you can be the master of your life.
The choice is yours.
Look I know I can be very blunt and straightforward and for some it rubs them the wrong way and for others they like it. But that was part of my change in life, no longer was I going to be a sheep and just nod and be part of the crowd.
I will say what's on my mind and no I don't care what people think of me. If I did I would never get anything accomplished.
I was told by one of my mentors "it's a waste of time worrying what people think of you, simple because people are not thinking of you as much as you think they are"
If I'm asked a question I will answer it and I will do it with respect. If you don't like the answer, honestly I don't care. You asked and I gave my answer what you do with the information is up to you.
I say all this because to forge your path in life there are 2 things you must do.
1) Develop an unshakable mindset of never giving up and that you can overcome any challenge.
2) Don't worry what ANYONE thinks of you - be you and be proud of who you are!!
One thing I absolutely know for sure is this:
If You Never Give Up You Can Never Fail!!
Oh one last thing, as you know I always end my post with "I believe in you"
This is not some tagline. When I say this I truly mean it. I believe in each and every person here in the WA. I absolutely know in my heart you have everything it takes to succeed.
All you have to do is do the work to get it done.
I believe in you
