WHEN I WAS LIVING IN FEAR I WAS NOT MOVING…
I was sitting in my car and doubting I would ever have the courage to just reach out to people and present them with my business opportunity. I was sitting there with list of people to call and present my business opportunity to. Paralyzed by the stories in my head about how they were just going to think I was “shady” or “too aggressive” or worse a bumbling idiot because I didn’t even know what to say. That is when I realized my problem was not that they were going today “No” to me. My problem was that I truly believed that had already said “No” before I even called them. I knew before I was going to call them I had to change my mind about what I thought they were going to say and what I was thinking. I searched AUDIBLE for a solution and found this amazing audiobook. NOAH taught me the power of “AFFORMATIONS” (yes FORM… not firm) an amazing tool that helped me create true visuals for my affirmations that helped me see that I already had the proof I was going to be successful. I just needed to focus on it. If you struggle with your beliefs about yourself then maybe you need to change your perspective on what you can accomplish by looking for proof in the right places.
When I love failure I succeed faster
Throughout my life I have had many failures and set-backs. I realized much later in life that the only real failures were taking them personally and not learning from them because the pain was too much. Finally, when I was fired twice in a 60 day period it sent me into a 3 year depression. FAILING FORWARD by John C Maxwell helped me create tons of value from every mistake that led to my eventual untimely discharge.
When I am disconnected from my passion
There are times when I feel like I am working hard and it feels like I am going backwards. It's times like this when the impulse to take a long break or just quit is highest. It is at this time that I am so thankful for Les Brown and his amazing audiobook THE POWER OF PURPOSE. The truth is that when we are connected to our purpose and living our true calling. There is no need for motivation. This audiobook is a must have for anyone looking to stretch beyond their comfort zone.
What got me started when I doubted myself...
I was sitting in my car feeling desperate. I needed to know how to change my life. It's at this point that I heard a great interview on the radio with Hal Elrod and he was telling his amazing story and how he bounced back from a car accident where he suffered permanent brain damage after actually being dead for 6 minutes. The Miracle Morning routine was how I got my power back. Check out his continuing series where he has a version of this book for people in specific occupations.
