“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves” Viktor E. Frankl
I have made the best mindset decision I could for moving my business forward. I have decided to become “Un-Messable“!
I just finished watching a short video from one of the leaders here in the MLSP community. His name is Ray Higdon. I’ve seen Ray around before & he’s a great blogger, so I sat down and watched his video as soon as it appeared. (We get these free bonuses added to our back office library regularly. Very cool feature of this marketer’s platform I’ve decided to start my blog on. Anyways, back to the clip :))
So, the question Ray Higdon was asking was, are you un-messable? Of course, the theme of the clip was mindset and how it affects your entire existence, essentially. I love this stuff! It’s so fascinating to learn how our minds really work.
Many of us were brought up to conform to the “norm” in our society, whether it’s comfortable for us or not. Be normal, they told us. You don’t want to stand out, they said.
Why not? some of us asked. Why do we have to be “normal” Why can’t we stand out?
Answer – The fact is, people will call you crazy for doings things differently, for standing out, especially for thinking radically different than others and verbalizing those thought processes. Some people really think you’ve lost it then.
But don’t let that discourage you. You CAN stand out, and you should. Everyone has a story to tell that will help someone stand out in their own life. You never know who you might impact. The ripple effect can often be invisible.
When you decide that you want to make the best mindset decision for you, you need to change things up in your life. You have to create within yourself a level of belief that will carry you through those rough days when your family, and even your friends, think you’re a lunatic because you want to earn a living on the internet, run away with the circus, live on the beach, or just do your own thing, whatever that may be.
In essence you have to acquire a thick skin. That thick skin comes with changing the way you think about many things in your life, and really believing in your choices.
Your thought processes have to change, drastically sometimes, in order to effect real change in your life.
They (society, family, etc.) want you to be “normal” and get a “real” job. You have a dream.
You want to create your own life, not lead one that is created for you by your heritage and/or the environment/society you live in.
You want to create because it is natural to you; it is natural to all of us, but not all of us are willing to break out of the box and go for it.
We are truly thriving in our lives when we are reaching for more to create. And I don’t mean we create the material stuff; we do, but we seek the joy found in the process. It’s what makes life so wonderful. The joy in each day, each moment, not in the acquiring of material goods or gain.
Another thing about change, is that it can take some time. Sometimes it takes a long time; sometimes change is swift and sweeping and seemingly overnight.\
How fast do you want to change your life?
Well, how committed are you? The time frame is really is up to you. The bigger your commitment to change, the more heart-felt focus you place towards it, the faster you get there.
The only thing that is holding you back from changing your life and going in a new direction is you. You are the master of your direction. You, and you alone decide what your life story looks like and how it plays out.
