What Words Do You Live By?
A common theme I hear from people looking to make a change particularly in their financial situation is that because they have never earned more than a certain amount, usually under $100k, they don’t believe it’s possible to earn more than this and if so, it will take so much work and effort, it wouldn’t be worth it.
A few things come to my mind when I hear this. Firstly in a job you are paid what the job is worth, not what you are worth. If you bring in $1 million in sales to the company, the company may only pay you $100k. Imagine if you utilised your skills working for yourself and generated $1 million in sales? Secondly, we’ve been conditioned to believe that creating a big result takes lots of time and effort. From my own experience, I’ve found creating a big result in business and in running has always taken much less effort than I thought and the biggest factor has been what I said to myself and what I believed to be possible and backing this up with action.
If you base your future on your past, don’t expect anything to change. Every time I hear this, I think how true it is. Confronted with wanting to create a different reality for yourself, will require you to change. It will require you to change what you tell yourself about you, the thoughts you think and what you believe to be possible.
Are you telling yourself that: “I can’t”, “It’s not possible,” “Nobody succeeds at these things”. This language will keep you stuck in the problem and you’ll be unable to see possible solutions.
If you don’t believe it’s possible for you to create success you’ll either never attempt anything or if you do, you’ve already concluded that you won’t be successful and this will become a self fulfilling prophecy.
So how do you change this? Look out into the real world and look for evidence of people who are creating the results you want. It’s easier to model those who are successful than it is to originate so find how they are creating success and model what they are doing. Read personal development books and autobiographies of successful people. Learn how they think and what they do to create their success.
When you change what you say to yourself about yourself to words such as “I can”, “It is possible”, “How can I do this?” you’ll open up the field of potential and start to see possibilities and solutions. You’ll start to see that it is possible to create a different reality and when you can see this for yourself, you can learn the “how to” and start to take steps in the direction of the vision you have for your life.
