Resisting The Blame Game And Seeing The Overlooked Obvious
Are you blaming circumstances or others for your lack of success? Are you blind to the overlooked obvious? Many people just can’t see what the true problem to their success […]
What do you see in your life, your family, your job? Do you see dark clouds…or the silver lining? It’s important to TRAIN your mind to LOOK for the good…because it IS there and you WILL find it!
What I get to share with you today excites me so much! This one little thing can make such a huge difference in every area of your life, and I believe it’s extremely important for us to get a refresher on this right now – especially in these times.
Look around you. Look at your life – your family, your friends, your coworkers, your community. Look at your business, your career, your plans, your future. Look at the world around you. Really examine the people, places, things and ideas around you right now.
What do you see?
“Dani, what do mean, ‘What do I see?’”
If you’ve spent any time with me, either in person or on our TV/radio show, you’ve probably heard me talk about the two different populations in the world today.
You see, 98% of the population is dead, or dead broke, by the age of 65, dependent on their family, friends or the federal government for their main source of income. And only 2% is financially secure and independent.
The difference? The way they think.
What goes on in your head actually determines your success in life. Your impact. Your happiness.
So, again, look around you. What do you see?
The 98%-ers see hard times. They see struggles. They see too much month left, at the end of their money. They see conflicts with their family and friends. They’re suffocating under the pressure of debt, seeing no way out. They’re stressed, burnt out, overworked and underpaid. These 98%-ers are terrified of the current events happening in the world. They’re worried about the upcoming elections. They have no hope for the future. And they actually laugh at those with hope, calling them stupid and naive.
A 98%-er says, “It’s not working! I can’t do it! I’m not smart enough. I married the wrong person. My kids are so ungrateful. My boss just doesn’t like me! Our country is doomed. I hate my job. Life’s not fair.”
On the other hand, 2%-ers see the good. They look for solutions. They find a way out. They have hope. They know where there’s a will, there’s a way. They’re not afraid to try something new, make mistakes, fall down, get back up and try something else.
My friend, it’s NEVER the circumstances that determine your success in life. The two different people I just described could have the exact same history, same past, same educational background, same family, same circumstances, same everything… but I GUARANTEE their outcomes will be totally different!
Why? Simply because of the way they think.
A 98%-er finds excuses, while a 2%-er finds solutions. A 98%-er complains, while a 2%-er finds the good in every situation. So can you see why the 2%-er is the one who ultimately succeeds in life? It’s pretty clear.
Now, what do you see in your life? In your family? In your job? Do you see problems or opportunities? Do you see dark clouds… or the silver lining?
It’s so important to train your mind to look for the good. And trust me, sometimes you have to look hard! But it IS there… and you WILL find it!
What you focus on, you actually get more of. When you focus on problems and why things won’t work, your problems will multiply. But when you look for the good, seek solutions, open your eyes to opportunities and focus on what does work, you will find more of those things in your life.
So today, begin to train your mind to focus on the good. I guarantee you will start seeing much more good in your life! In fact, take just a couple of minutes to list FIVE good things in your life right now. They could be big things or little things. Just make a list! Do that every single day, and I promise it will change the way you think. It will actually help you succeed in every area of your life! Then, don’t forget to let me know what’s GOOD in your life in the comments below.
