Over the last few weeks, I have struggled to find a direction for this blog. Sitting in front of a blank Word document, I was frozen about what I could write about that would help move my readers and myself forward in our lives.
Then during a marathon reading session, it came to me. What is the most important change I have experienced that can help you?
It was a change of mindset.
Of all the topics I have studied over the years, the only one that has had a true impact on my health, my wealth, and my success has been my mindset. So for the next few days, I am going to try to help explain why changing your mindset is so powerful and how you can start to accomplish this feat.
The Little Person in the Elevator
If you are taller than four feet, imagine for a moment that you are a little person. Try to see the world from the perspective of someone that is less than four feet in height. For the sake of this thought experiment, imagine that you are three feet tall.
Now imagine that you walk into an empty elevator in huge high-rise apartment complex. Looking at the rows of buttons in the elevator, what is your thought? Do you find yourself thinking, “I will never be able to live in the penthouse, because I will never be tall enough to push the button at the top?”
If you are like most people, you think similar thoughts on a daily basis. You think, “I will never be CEO because I am not in the good old boys club,” or, “I can’t eat healthy because no one in my family eats healthy,” or maybe you say, “I will never be able to afford that because I don’t earn enough money.”
How often do you say or think such thoughts? Do you think them daily, hourly, or maybe every second of every day?
If you are saying or thinking such things, then your mindset is the same as a little person that looks at a bank of buttons thinking, “I will never live in the penthouse because I am not tall enough to push the button.”
I want you to know that you can change that mindset. Instead of thinking, “I can’t have that because I am not tall enough,” you will think, “Now that I live in the penthouse, they installed a new button just for me.”
Know that, “You have what it takes.”
The limitation, the belief that you could never get somewhere because of a limitation is a mindset. Almost everything that is in your life right now is due to your mindset. Is your mindset one where you always see buttons that are too high, or are you moving the buttons to your height?
Over the next few days, I want to help you change your mindset to one where there are no buttons that are too high. You can create the life, business, and health you desire. It just takes the right mindset.
