Train your mind to create what you want to achieve in business and life.
Your greatest ambitions are expressed in your business pursuits.
You quickly find that book knowledge about business has little to do with running your own business.
This is where your creativity will shine. Use your brain to rise above the rest. Your creativity is key to placing your business above your competitor, and will ultimately place you as the expert in your field.
Your beliefs affect your ability to run a successful business – and indeed to have a successful life.
I want to share a few insights about how some of the things you were told when you were young (and that you took on) affect you today:
“Successful people do what unsuccessful people won’t”
TRUE: So many people simply give up because it’s too hard. Many wealthy people started their journey with nothing. Are you ready to think wealthy, act wealthy, and be wealthy, including all of life’s ups and downs, or are you just going to sit there dreaming, and criticising others for having a go at doing great things? Part of the process of making significant changes means you first must change the way you think about things; in this circumstance, being wealthy.
If you limit yourself to your existing capabilities, you will not go further. If you want to be successful, do not sit there and wonder how others do it. Go out and do something about it. Force your mind to think how you can achieve it on your own. Do not let a small thing such as money block you from becoming successful. Find a way to get around it. When you really start to understand money, you will also come to the realisation that money actually has little to do with overall wealth, but it does make the travel easier.
“Success is gauged on how much you have given up”
TRUE: How much are you willing to give up to get to where you want to be? Would you put everything on the line to get there, or would you rather play it safe and stay within your comfort zone? You have decisions to make. Some of those decisions you may consider severe, but, in hindsight, you find they were necessary.
Self-limitation and risk play a big part on the whole success and wealth scenario. Sometimes, you need to give up everything to get you where you want to be. Ask yourself this: “Am I willing to risk it all to become successful or how much am I willing to risk getting on top?”
“A penny saved is a penny earned”
NOT TRUE: Do the maths. Unless you are a compulsive gambler, this is not true.
“Life is fair”
NOT TRUE: Stop kidding yourself! Life will always have challenges and problems which will not seem fair. This is how it worked before and how it still works. It is your obligation to adjust in life and accept your achievements.
Your ‘mind over matter’ can move mountains.
Just do it.
