Beyond First Glance

When first considering this Mindset to share with you, I thought it only about relationships or love—but then, I looked again.

When facing most anything, it is helpful for entrepreneurs like us to have a solid hold on memories, experience, and past fears. Keeping these emotions and experiences in a balanced perspective can save us from analysis paralysis.

Now I am not suggesting we throw experience out the window completely. We certainly do not want to make old mistakes once again. However, we must balance our lessons learned with our desire for action. Use what you know and keep moving forward. In more cases than not, the moving forward is the more valuable of the two.

But as this quote says, where hurt or fear has hit us previously, we have to find healing. Whether in a relationship or a business transaction, we have to allow ourselves the healing process. Otherwise, we will spend our lives responded out of fear rather than abundance.

Think about that.

Faux Success

Faux Success

Ever notice that those with “real” money, as in crazy tons, massive wealth, are usually pretty reserved about their wealth. While those who are hustling fast to create their first million are usually…

loud and out there, and

showing off their new car,

new watch,

new this, new that…

You know the drill, right?  Funny how that works.

That is why today’s mindset encourages you to work in silence and let your success do all the talking.  Not only will it speak louder and clearer, it also makes you more interesting and alluring to your tribe.

It is always more powerful for someone to discover how successful you are than for you to simply tell them.

Do the work. Get the results. Let the world discover how spectacular you really are.

Simple as that.

Think about that.

Making Peace with Past

Making Peace with Past

Past is just that…past. But all too often, we let our past take control (or at least greatly impact) our present.

Often, our past reminds us our fears and our failures. These ghosts of struggles in the past cannot really harm us, but they certainly can hinder our momentum.  Of course, that hindering requires that we allow it.

That is the funny thing about our past. It is there for us to learn. It exists to give us clarity and experience that can be used to drive forward better, faster, and stronger. But we fall prey to remembering the past and how we may or may not have performed at the level we wanted to.

As a result, our past begins to take on a life of its own — and control our present and our future.

That is why making peace with the past, is so critical. In making peace, you find your future.

Think about that.

A Quiet Teacher

A Quiet Teacher

Whether a spiritual person or not, we often wonder why we feel so alone when going through a particular test in our lives.

For many, it is all too easy to wonder why we have been left alone to fend for ourselves, rather than be cared for and nurtured by God. But that is not what life’s tests are for. We learn about ourselves amid hardship.

Rarely do we have an epiphany of our own greatness when we are on top of the world and not facing a challenge of any kind.

Rather, our sense of self is most clearly seen when at or near rock bottom and we have been stripped back to our pure, raw self.

Please do not misunderstand me, I do not relish hardship. But I have come to learn that all adversity happens for a reason and that life’s real lessons happen directly in the middle of those challenges.

And even though it seems you are all alone, I encourage you to remember that the teacher is always quiet while the student takes a test.

Think about that.

Learning to Say Yes

Learning to Say Yes

Learning to Say Yes

It would be easy to say, “yes” if we knew that we were looking at a life-changing opportunity at the time.  Trouble is, rarely do life-changing opportunities show up in our lives with a large flashing sign to tell you what they are.

Wouldn’t that be much easier?

The answer to finding such opportunities in a sea of distractions is to know yourself better and deeper than ever before.

The more in tune you are with your non-negotiables, what you believe in, and where you want your life to be, the more likely you are to see distractions for what they are. And, as a result, you can see bigger opportunities when they appear as well.

But the challenge is that many of us are running about, scrambling and swinging at anything that moves…hoping to get lucky.

I do not believe in luck. I believe in making luck.

We make great things happen by being clear and diligent towards our dream. So few are unwilling to make those sacrifices.

Are you?
