Have you ever heard your point of view creates your reality? What that means is the way that you see something is how it will show up for you.
What do you think the difference is between somebody who sees the glass half empty, and somebody who sees the glass half full? It is just their point of view?
Do you believe that you can’t have it all, you can’t be successful, or you’re never going to be a success? Maybe you believe you’re going to fail. Do you have an underlining belief that nobody ever makes it in business and only a select few can make a million dollars? If you answered yes to any of those questions can you see how that is exactly what is showing up in your life?
What if you had some simple tools to help change your mindset that could even improve your financial success? Would you do them?
1) Change How You See Things
If your point of view creates your reality and you don’t like what’s showing up in your life, then all you have to do is change your point of view. At first, you might have to be vigilant in stopping your negative self-talk, but eventually you can change your perspective.
Did you know you have already done this, to some degree, at different times in your life? Let’s take a look at your past as an example. Look back to the supposed failures, adversity and disappointments. Can you see that in some way they all worked out in your favor? I’m sure you can even remember times when you were happy something did not work out.
Have you always known, on some level, it is all conspiring for you, never against you? What if you could be grateful for everything without judgement? Knowing that things are going to be far greater than you can imagine anyway. Might that change how you view things?
2) Be Willing to Be Different and Stand Out
Most people are not willing to be judged. Not willing to be ostracized, different, or weird. So, they don’t expose themselves all to appear normal, average and real.
Are you inspired by people like Richard Branson and Marianne Williamson? Are they a little different? How about you, would you be willing to inspire others by being all you can be? Even if that meant you would be stand out from the crowd? What if what makes you unique is the very thing that invites others to a different possibility?
3) Be Willing to Take Risks and Fail
Let’s talk about millionaires for a minute. It’s not that they believe in themselves or what they are doing all the time. I think everyone doubts themselves sometimes. However, if you talk to a millionaire or hear them speak the one thing I have found over and over to be true is that they did know something else was possible. Something other than what they had or what they grew up with. That belief alone spurs them on to take risks. They are willing to do whatever it takes and not let doubt stop them. They are willing to fail and to fall flat on their face.
What if anything really is possible? Might it be worth taking a leap and at least seeing where you land?
4) Keep Going
Everyone has the ability to be a huge success in their life. Yes, I mean everyone. But most people give up right before the finish line. If you were running a race and were sick and tired but knew there was a finish line would you give up? Probably not. What if you treated all your goals in life the same way?
It’s not uncommon to have struggles and sometimes even feel like things are not working. There is often a dip right before things take off. Unfortunately, that is when most people believe it’s not working and pull the plug.
Did you know it took Thomas Edison 1,000 times before he got the lightbulb to work? He was asked what it felt like to fail 1,000 times and he said, “I didn’t fail, I just found 1,000 ways it didn’t work.”
The only difference between those that succeed and those that don’t is whether they give up or not. What would it take for you to never give up, never give in and never quit on your ideas and dreams?
If you’re willing to believe something else is possible, be grateful for what you have, take risks, just go for it, and never quit, you can’t lose. There is no failure in going for something. If it doesn’t work out, you can try something else. The only true failure in life, is never giving yourself a chance.
What would it take for you to realize you are far more capable than you’ve ever given yourself credit for and far more able to do things that you’ve never imagined?
