Let’s talk about the #1 issue that I see keeps entrepreneurs stuck in their businesses (and their lives), and offer a key step to use RIGHT AWAY.
Unearthing And Correcting Your Beliefs.
We don’t realize that nothing is ever as it appears. There’s ALWAYS more than what actually meets the eye.
You can’t take things at face value. For example: A child has a total meltdown over a toy…is it really about the toy? Or a power struggle? Or maybe the child hasn’t eaten in far too long and is suffering from low blood sugar…
You bounce a check in your bank account, which for some reason comes as a total surprise to you….but when you take a closer look…were you perhaps not WANTING to get too close to the numbers themselves? Were you AVOIDING something or AFRAID of something you know needed to be looked at? (As if avoiding doing the numbers would actually help your business…)
There’s always an inner component to your outer experience. Everything begins and ends in the mind.
When you realize this, you can then create magnificent results in your business and your life. Even beyond what your rational mind thought was “possible.”
The free flow of your good can only be dammed up from within and no one can keep this good from you but you.
So…first of all, STOP FOCUSING ON WHAT YOU DON’T WANT.
As one of my favorite modern philosophers, Esther Hicks, describes: YESTERDAY’S THOUGHTS ARE WHAT CREATED TODAY’S REALITY. TODAY’S THOUGHTS ARE ALREADY CREATING TOMORROW’S REALITY. WHAT IS IT THAT YOU ARE THINKING?!
Mystics and ancient sages have been saying this forever; Jesus is quoted as saying “as you think so shall you be.” And in business, some of you may be familiar with Napoleon Hill’s landmark study in the early 20th century “Think and Grow Rich,” in which he studied the habits and thought patterns of dozens of financially successful men, such as Teddy Roosevelt, John D. Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Charles Schwab, George Eastman. And he, too, found that the single most defining difference between those who had accumulated wealth and those who hadn’t were their beliefs.
As Henry Ford eloquently stated: Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.
Begin each day with gratitude for what is, set your intention for what you want, and root out old beliefs that don’t serve you. Replace them with “Truth” such as “Anything is Possible,” or “I AM ENOUGH.” What you think about, you bring about, so start activating your good from within!
