In Times Like These...

I was reading an article this morning mentioning the craziness of people feeling some kind of doom. Let's think about this for a minute. If you are wanting to be successful in whatever endeavor, would it benefit you to begin by thinking, "If I fail at this..."? Of course not! If your young child is carrying a drinking glass into another room many parents say, "Don't spill!" Guess what happens next?

YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND DOES NOT RECOGNIZE A NEGATIVE STATEMENT, ONLY POSITIVE! The child's mind heard "spill" so it did what it was commanded to do. The same statement is true for people who say, "I'm not a smoker" or "I'm not fat". You get the picture.

My challenge to you is to think on purpose and not to regurgitate whatever garbage you hear. If you want your business to succeed, do what it takes. If you want your family to be a tight knit family, do what it takes. After all, when is the last time that the government or the media encouraged you to do something? You are the only one in charge of your success.

Here are a few things to change the states of people who are negative:
1. If someone is ranting or moaning about ongoing problems, put a clown nose on and listen to them.
2. If they are in your office and not leaving, you leave.
3. Next time you visit the bank, ask if they are offering free samples today.

The reason why few people achieve their potential in life is that they are afraid to make decisions and take responsibility for those decisions. I challenge you to pursue something that you have been putting off, take action on something that you have been thinking about, and to celebrate your momentum!
