It’s amazing what we can accomplish if we believe in something. The way we think affects how we go about things, especially when chasing a dream.
I can personally vouch for this in regards to making my dream of freedom a reality. When I first launched something out to the world, how I thought about it affected how well that thing did.
After not seeing any sales of my first book for the first few months it was out, I stopped talking about it all together. When I released my first product and no one bought it, I stopped creating products.
Can you relate?
Our mindset is crucial to success
It’s a Wednesday afternoon when I’m writing this post and my legs are sore again. I’ve lost 104 pounds so far and I’ve lost it through running.
Yesterday I didn’t run because I wanted to try something today. Last night as I thought about what I wanted to do, I started to listen to the doubts and fears I had.
When I woke up this morning, I changed my mindset and told myself that I absolutely can do this, so I started running.
As I ran, those doubts came back and my legs started getting sore but I pressed on. The end result is that I ran my first official marathon today (picture above), I actually ran 26.4 miles, it took six hours!
Once I changed my mindset, it affected how I ran and more importantly, how I pushed. If you’re going to be successful at anything in life, you must have the right mindset.
The wrong mindset changes your direction
Think about what happens when you have the wrong mindset, you’re very hesitant, you don’t proceed with confidence. I’m not telling you something you don’t know but do you understand how important your thinking is?
Changing the way I thought is what got me finally to the point where I could see my dream supporting my family. Once that happened, I got serious about how I chased that dream and expedited the process.
I didn’t waste anymore time, I had clear focus on what I needed to do and trust me, it will be the same for you.
The right mindset gives you what you need
Do you ever wonder where the motivation from those that are successful comes from? By changing their mindset and focusing, they have all the motivation they need to push through the hard times.
Having the right mindset means you believe that your thing is really possible. It’s getting to the point where you stop listening to the doubts and fears and starting acting like what you want to be.
If you’re going to get to the place of freedom, you have to change your mindset and start believing in yourself. I believe in you, I know you can do this.
Do you have the right mindset?
