It doesn’t matter where you are right now, because every minute you are born anew.
You can absolutely change your life by just changing your energy, changing your state, and approach life with action and optimism.
It’s conventional for society to equate money to success. But money has no energy. It’s just a byproduct of you changing the way you think, move, and communicate.
If you are a good person and you win the lotto, you’ll still be a good person, and now you can raise your contribution to the world. If you are an asshole and you win the lotto, you’ll still be an asshole…on a yacht or a mansion. In both instances, money wasn’t earned, it was just given.
However, these people who have to earn money and want to earn more money but they’re not open to changing who they are or their beliefs in life, they will stay where they are.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there ARE people who are unfortunate to find it very difficult to change their situation and their opportunities.
BUT there are also people who just need to hear that wherever they are is not as bad, because a lot of very successful people started there.
Once again, it doesn’t matter where you are right now. What is important is that you are moving forward.
📕Read books, free videos on the internet, go to free events that raise your motivation and knowledge. ACTIVELY SEEK LEARNING.
LISTEN more than you talk. When you are talking, you are only repeating what you already know. When you listen, you are downloading new information into your head that even if you disagree with the person, you can still benefit from the exposure to another point of view.
Whenever I meet multi-millionaires, I always ask them questions and I listen a lot. A few weeks ago, I was having wine with the owner of Security Bank. He was a humble man and I asked him about a lot of things, including cryptocurrency. I went to the bathroom to quickly find out about SB’s history and see where he’s coming from. I let him and his friends talk all night. I learned a lot! (It didn’t cost me a ton of money, they even shared their expensive bottle with me. LOL)
Surround yourself with winners. It’s undeniable: there are people who are 100% rooting for you and are first to congratulate your wins…but there are also people whom you know are just waiting for you to fail. Or don’t support your dreams. The hurtful thing is these people are sometimes close to us, like our spouses or cousins. Don’t give them real estate in your life.
Actively police your thoughts. I always tell my learners this: the most expensive real estate in the world is your headspace. Be wary of what you think about or get triggered about or worry about. These thoughts form your reality and incentivizes you to dwell on them, until they happen in real life, and then you get a minor kick of dopamine from “I knew it, I was right”, even if it’s something bad. Only think of solutions, happy thoughts, communicating better, and other positive things. If you need help, download an “affirmations audio” off Youtube.
And this might be counter intuitive…
Learn how to give more. Help the people you can help, ask how you can serve your clients better, donate to charity, and if you can’t afford a mentor but somehow got some guidance, ask them, “What can I do to at least pay you back? Is there anything I can do for you?” Develop a habit of giving. It’s fascinating to see how many people set themselves up for failure from the start because they have such a scarce mindset that they just want to take, take, take. Before I even started offering anything as a business or marketing consultant, I always make sure that I’ve given soooo much value and content because I don’t want to simply take. It has worked so far. All of my launches were successful.
This WILL be easier than you think. Self-awareness is key to building a mentally resilient you, which makes for the best backdrop for success. Whatever success is to you.
Thoughts: success to me is having fruitful relationships with a few key people that make me happy (like my sisters, boyfriend, and teammates), successful and growing businesses, helping other people have thriving businesses, being financially confident, and being fit and able to sleep well.
What is success to YOU? 🙂
