The difference between people who achieve what they want and those who don’t just comes down to whether they get in their own way or not.
I know, duh. But for many years, I was a fraud in my business and my life.
I was the poster child for self-sabotage. And I blamed everyone and everything else for my lack of results.
Here’s my deep dark little secret:
Even though I put on a nice façade for everyone for many years in my business, here’s what was really going on:
I used to believe that I wasn’t good enough to be successful
I didn’t have faith in myself (or much of anything, to be truthful)
I used to be gripped by fear(s), often daily
I approached life from a lack perspective
I didn’t finish what I started
I lacked boundaries
I was distracted by bright shiny objects (squirrel!)
I made important life decisions from a Victim perspective
I was resentful and jealous of other people
I didn’t feel like I deserved more in my life
Basically, on the inside, I had a huge lack of self-confidence.
I just felt totally inadequate for a lot of my life.
Sooooo, when a really good opportunity came along, personally or professionally, I would talk myself out of it and wouldn’t take it, even though I knew it would take me to where I ultimately wanted to be.
Pretty shocking actually. I mean, I knew I was smart. I knew I was a good person, but this was self-sabotage at its fullest and couldn’t seem to stop it.
Until one day.
I decided to make a commitment to upgrade my mindset.
It didn’t just land in my lap. I mean, you can’t do your own mindset work. If you could have, you would have, right??
No, I had to make a decision and say yes to an opportunity to transform my mindset and stop getting in my own way.
And so I did. I signed up to do mindset work and within 9 months, I tripled my income in one year. And then multiplied that.
I have new beliefs and convictions that I am here for really big things
I think waaaaayyy bigger (and my students pay me for that)
I understand the universal, spiritual principles that govern all of life
I play this game of life, not haphazardly, but according to the instructions
I have simple processes that are very powerful for getting past fear
I continually overcome blocks that get in the way
I’ve increased my wealth consciousness (and my results, because of it)
I have a Victor’s mentality now
I am not afraid of the unknown
I stand up for what I want in my life
I am intentional, I am focused, I am disciplined
I believe in myself and my capabilities
I am no longer self-sabotaging my way through life
I say yes to the opportunities that will give me what I ultimately want
I have given myself permission to play a much, much bigger game in life
And, as I mentioned, I have the results to show for it.
It really is THAT simple. (Hand slapping forehead.)
