Today I wanted to send you a quick message about mindset. It is unbelievable how much power you have over your life, your attitude, outcomes and more, just by changing your mindset. By really concentrating on whatever you want to have happen stems from creating a more positive mindset.
Brian Tracy says, “The law of concentration states that whatever you dwell upon grows. The more you think about something, the more it becomes part of your reality.” If you decide that you’re in a terrible marriage, guess what your marriage becomes? If you wake up and you decide you’re low on energy, and you’ve got a headache, and you feel lethargic, and you want to take a nap… you’re going to continue to feel more tired.
If you tell yourself, “I’m not going to lose weight this time. I’m going to go on this diet but I’m probably going to fall off and slip into my old, bad habits.” Or “I’m going to start this business but I’m not good at sales and I won’t be very good at this.” And maybe a sprinkle of: “So I’m not very good at social media and so I’ll probably fail.” Just saying those things quietly in your head… they become true. Period. End of subject.
Whatever you believe to be true, whatever you focus your attention and energy on, becomes your reality. If you’re thinking to yourself that people don’t like me, people think I’m awkward, people don’t like to be around me, or I’m being judged… all of those things become your reality. How do you change it? You just start speaking to yourself in a different voice. Enjoy the compliments people give you. Soak them in! Focus on the baby steps. You’ve already made progress. If you look back and notice how far you’ve come and you focus on that, rather than how much further you have to go, that changes your reality.
Create a positive mindset and change your reality. It takes time and it takes practice. Practice saying: “I’m a winner, I can do this. I’m doing this. I’ve got this. Or, I know I can do this.” As corny as you think it sounds to repeat phrases like this to yourself, if you do it will become your reality. You can do anything you set your mind to. That is the truth, I believe you can, and I know you believe it too!
