I found this quaint little coffee house just outside of Southern University Law Center is a broken down area of town recently. Since I enjoy helping out the local business person I decided to give it a try.
This small area just outside of our capital city has long been forgotten and fallen into the throngs of disrepair and poverty.
As I sipped my Chai Latte (which was very good by the way). I began to ponder why this area had fallen by the wayside.
The were numerous grants in the area, a business center with a number of classes to help business owners yet still. The area was well below average.
That's when it struck me that the mindset of the entire area had become, "this is our lot in life." In talking to the owner and another business owner next door, the entire mood was they were waiting on someone else to help them move forward.
I remember feeling hopeless when my life hit bottom so I understand it happens but here's the difference. You cannot look at your circumstances, your past and your present as completely out of your control.
Nothing is further from the truth.
Actually it's quite the opposite. You have the power to control your own destiny. You may not feel like it. But you absolutely have the power to create incredible success. If only you can do one thing.
Change your mindset. Many times this mindset switch is a deep work. If happens in our subconscious mind and drives us to do things that are hijacking our success. If you watched my free webinar you saw one universal hijacker and that is fear. There are far more than that.
Once you are able to successfully change your mindset you will be able to break free from obstacles getting in your way.
How can you tell if you are being hijacked?
If you said yes to any of those questions your success is being hijacked- undermined, if you will, by a mindset that went off course.
Here's the good news. You have unlimited potential. You're sitting on a goldmine, and chances are, if you're like most people, you don't even know it.
If you think that's not possible for you, or it's not feasible in your industry, business, sector etc., etc., words won't do justice to just how horribly mistaken you are.
And if there's one thing I can categorically guarantee with every cell of my being, it's that there's a significant capacity within you that is not being utilized.
All you need to do is truly embrace who you are.
Pie in the sky promises? I don't think so.
Right now, the knowledge, information and experience locked up in that marvelous mind of yours is going to waste. It may be serving you and your existing clients well within the limited confines of your business today but are you truly getting the results you desire?
Did you know that only 2-3% of people are using their full potential?
…if you don’t think so then look at anyone who has ever had a coach. How many people after giving up still have more left once their coach encourages them?
There is an audience out there with wants and needs - the very wants and needs you can fulfill. These wants and needs are not being fulfilled.
And if their wants and needs are not being met by you, guess what? Sooner or later, they'll find an alternative voice to scratch their itch.
How can I, at age 57, experience incredible success in Law School? The same reason that I’m experiencing unbelievable success in every area of my life. Because I learned how to Activate my Awesome. I learned how to operate in my sweet spot. That area where I alone can shine. That area where I am strongest.
What if you could come to you business with 100% of your potential.
The key is to discover the hijackers in your mindset and destroy them.
