We are seven days into my discussion of mindset.
How are you feeling?
Do you feel like you better understand what mindset is and how it affects your life? If so that is great. If not, don’t worry, you have what it takes to get control of your mindset in order to take massive action in your life.
Yesterday I talked about why you should hate your parents. It was a little controversial, but it only got to part of the problem with getting the mindset needed to take massive action.
The major reason that most people can’t change their mindset is that it is the hardest and easiest thing you can do.
It is easy, because you can literally change your mindset in an instant. Right now you can say to yourself, “I will never doubt myself again. I will always take massive action to live the life of my dreams.”
Sounds good on the screen . . . right?
That is the fallacy of the self help industry. Changing your mindset in an instant sounds good on paper, but it takes overcoming a lot of negative influences and conditioning to make a lasting change in your mindset.
Here is what I want you to do today . . .
Realize that changing your mindset is easy, but know that there are no magic bullets. Spend a few minutes pondering that and write out exactly what steps you are going to take to make sure that you change your mindset a little each day.
- Leave love notes for yourself to remind you that you can make a mindset change right now or will you wait to change when you are ready.
- Smile more. Even faking a smile can make you feel better.
- Accept that you can change on your time and in your own way.
- Tell yourself that you have what it takes.
It is the little things that you do everyday that help you change your mindset. It is easy, but it is one of those easies that is difficult to execute everyday. If you are finding it hard, don’t fret it. I struggle everyday with being more positive, knowing I am on the right path, and knowing I am doing the right things to move forward.
Take it slow and know that you will get to where you want to be if you work towards it everyday.
How do we do that?
That is the topic of tomorrow’s post.
