One of the main things we have control over is our way of thinking. The extent to which you believe this to be true, it is true for you, the extent to which you believe it to be false, it is false for you. And to quote Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right either way”.
The question is: are you ready to take control of your mind? Things could be going terribly wrong in your life; The question is, how are you seeing it and what are you prepared to do to correct things again. R Buckminster Fuller puts it this way: “Wealth is the progressive domination of matter by the mind”.
Anthony Robbins tells a wonderful story about how he was once poor, then rich, and then poor again. This second time of poverty was through the actions of an associate. He realized he had a choice: he could turn around and ‘play dead’ or take life and write a plan for success, and this is exactly what he has done to date. He clearly adopted a ‘can do’ mentality in the most challenging place in his life.
When we think, we are creating things. We create what we think. What if you found out that you don’t have money to pay your bills, to buy food, to catch the next bus to go to that much-needed interview, to get that much-needed job, to put that much-needed food on your table and pay for those expenses? bills? What would you do? It seems to me that there are several options: you could find yourself on the street without food or shelter, or you could say, well, I have nothing to lose, I have some skills, I have some ideas, I have a broader experience. Seeing myself as this, I’m going to start my life. Throughout history and certainly with some of the millionaires we meet today, they have had to do exactly that. It is no secret and it is well documented in his books that Les Brown lived in his workplace for a time, without anyone knowing. Robert Kiyosaki tells us that at one point in his life he lived in his car and I could go on.
