Lesson # 8 – A “Winning Mindset” is Your Strongest Weapon!
Let me start by asking you a very serious question.
“Do you expect to win or lose?”
Pretty simple question isn’t it? Stop and think about it for just a second and come up with your answer.
I find that the what many people are thinking suggests that when faced with an new opportunity of any description, they don’t expect to win. Therefore, by default, they are setting themselves up to lose.
Here is an example of what I hear when I first help a new member that just bought one of my products, or a competitor’s product I may have recommended: “Well, I will see how this product does for me. The last thing I did didn’t get me any results at all, so I am hoping that I am not getting myself in the same situation.”
Does this sound like someone that really is ready to do whatever it takes to make this new product really work? Or does it suggest they really do not expect any different result than what they experienced with the last product?
The language you speak is simply a manifestation of the way that your mind thinks and the belief system that it has.
The words coming out have to be thought – either consciously or subconsciously.
What is your language? Is it positive or is it negative?
Does every direction you look seem to point towards failure?
Let’s do the Mirror Test.
First, I have another question to ask you,
“What Do You See in Your Mirror?”
Do you see every imperfection, worry, or failure, or do you truly see the greatness you were created to walk in?
What do you hear yourself say? Do you berate yourself with comments like “I’m overweight,” or “I’m getting old”? Or do you stand tall and say “I look great!”
I really believe that a mirror reflects much more than what your eyes see at a quick glance. If you really listen to the thoughts going on inside your mind as you look into that mirror, I think you will find that a mirror really reflects your inner thoughts and your beliefs. It is a reflection into the soul.
I challenge you to next time you’re in front of a mirror to listen to the voice inside and what it is saying…. I think you may be surprised.
When I look at this picture I see someone totally different than I used to see when I looked in the mirror before.
I am working on things but I can tell you, I really have come a long way and I know in time you will too!
Keep positive thoughts.
