“No wonder I was failing… I had absolutely no idea how it worked”…
I once heard from a wealthy mentor of mine:
– If you fear losing money, then you will be a “loser of money” and stay BROKE.
It took me a while to “get it”, but I later found out through experience, that when you have a big fear of losing money, then you will never even take the risk, and you will lose out on millions of dollars you would have made, which is the biggest risk of all.
The decision to “pass” on opportunity is deadly.
Instead of taking control and owning your life, you may wait around for a “lucky break” or “lottery” ticket.
Every mentor says, “Success doesn’t give you what you want or “need“, it gives you what you deserve”.
Have you deserved success by making the good decisions that are necessary – like the discipline it takes to save the $5 per day (instead of the $5 coffee), and invest it into an asset? I didn’t realize this for years, and I sure paid for it later.
I once heard from a wealthy mentor of mine:
Same rules apply here. If you don’t face your fear being rejected, then you will never even try, ensuring that the answer is always a “NO”!
Remember back in high school, when you wanted to go on a date with that person you were interested in, but you were so fearful of getting told “no”, that you never even asked, as your worst fear became a reality.
When you don’t go for it, your reality is always a “NO”.
If you fear you might fail, chances are, you’re a failure:
Hmmm… Do we see some consistencies here? …
Most people fear failure so much that, they never even try, or even get started.
Some people even tell themselves, “well what if I succeed, it’ll be so much pressure!” and “I’ll pry have to pay tons in taxes!” and “but people hate rich people!”
This internal dialogue is your subconscious. It is most powerful, with the ability to sabotage any success you thought you had a chance for.
Change your thoughts, you will change your life.
If you have a fear of other people’s opinions, (in other words, care about what people might think about you), then you will never do anything that will be worth talking about.
I always let people know…
If you aren’t doing any out of the ordinary, (extraordinary), then yes, people won’t be talking (crap) about you, (good or bad), which means you are probably are not very successful.
If you fear the “unfamiliar” and only “stick to what you know” and “play it safe”, then you won’t be catching any waves of success.
If you stay doing what “everybody else does”, never “venturing out” into the “unknown” or “uncharted areas”, then you will not ever be “at the right place at the right time”, and will not be one of what they call the “lucky ones”.
If you look around, you see that followers always wait for things to be “safe”, like sheep – until “everybody else is doing it”, and then they take action.
However, to catch the waves of success, it is all about timing. Same as surfing. You can’t be on top of it. You can’t be behind it. You must be way in front of the wave, and READY.
Those who make the big bucks are the ones who took the risk, before “everybody else” caught on. They know it’s about “preparation” meeting “opportunity”.
If you choose to live a life of leadership, then you take massive and immediate action when great opportunities are presented. You go after it, even if it takes you into unfamiliar territories.
The traditionalists stick to what everybody else does, waiting until it is more familiar, “safe”, or “normal” in the marketplace. Those who are too uncomfortable to get acquainted with the “unfamiliar” remain skeptical to “new” things, even if their old ideas are not working.
Too Good To Be True
I’ve heard a few people say “it seems like it’s too good to be true”. They are absolutely right, it IS too good to be true, but ONLY for THEM.
Those with the “glass half full”, who say “this is too good to pass up” are the ones who successfully (and consistently) catch waves.
Why is it that for some people, success just seems consistently effortless? It is because they decide quickly and take massive action. They know that even if they try, and fail, they still had a better chance at success than not trying at all.
So why do others sit and struggle, month after month, settling for what life gives them?
It is because even when they are at the “right place right time” and they should be taking massive and immediate action, they decide to stay with “I just don’t have the money right now”, and “yeah, I’ll get to it later”.
What about you? Have you ever accidentally sabotaged your own success? Some people do it, over and over and over again, without every realizing it. They watch waves pass by, watching other people “get lucky”, at the same time thinking (in quiet desperation), “nothing lucky ever happens to me!”
So here’s an idea…
