THE POWER OF THE MIND
Your mind is like a garden. You can grow flowers. You can grow weeds.
Your thoughts become your beliefs.
Your beliefs become your habits.
Your habit drives your behaviors.
Your behaviors determine your destiny.
~ John Assaraf
DESIRE IS THE STARTING POINT OF SUCCESS
The first thing that will contribute to reaching your goal is that you simply want to reach it badly enough. You must learn how to desire with sufficient intensity to be successful.
If you have the desire you have the power to attain success. You can really have anything you want in life if you go after it. But you have to want it.
As a drowning soul desires air, as a shipwrecked person craves fresh water, so must you feel that intense, eager, insistent, demanding, ravenous desire for your success.
Your desire for success must be so strong within you that it becomes the very breath of your life. It must be your first thought when you wake up, and your last thought when you go to bed at night.
You can have anything you want if you go after it with intensity.
Everything is tied to mindset. In fact, mindset is everything. It controls and directs everything we do.
Earl Nightingale has a great audio entitles, "The Strangest Secret," and the secret? " We are what we think about."
In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill says, "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe it will achieve."
His contention is that you would not have had a thought unless you were capable of its accomplishment.
A critical issue is to be conscious of what you're thinking about. It takes a definite, determined, conscious decision to resist all the negative self-talk.
WHAT ARE YOU FOCUSED ON?
Energy flows where attention goes.
Focus on what you want to create in your life vs. what you don't want. Focus feeds your mindset.
Clarifying and focusing on your "WHY" feeds into your mindset, and drives your actions.
Your goal, the reason why you are doing this business is something you truly are passionate about, something that tips into your emotions. Visualize it...feel it...believe it...
Put it in writing, and cultivate the passion by reviewing your "WHY" day and night. This will stimulate the emotion you had when you first established it and plant it deep in your subconscious.
You'll know you're there when it consumes you, and you're consistently taking action toward your dreams.
