It’s been said that this industry is 90% mental and 10% execution. To have success at a high level there are four things you must excel at.
The first of these is state management or state of mind. There are two things that control the state that we are in, the first is our physiology or the way we carry ourselves. Most people think that something bad will happen that will cause us to pout or become depressed, basically the negative response comes from the negative event but that is not the case. Depression is done physiologically, its hard-wired into our bodies the same way that happiness is hard-wired in our bodies. Most people don’t know that by simply putting a smile on your face you actually induce chemical changes in the brain and you feel better, but the we have all been programmed to believe that when something bad happens we are supposed to drop our shoulders and walk around in a funk but the truth is that our results are all in the way we carry ourselves, there is the event that happens and there is how we choose to interpret it, so really we hold all the cards, we are not at the mercy of our environment. The second thing that controls our state is focus. Focus goes where energy flows; if you close your eyes and repeatedly tell yourself to look for blue, when you open your eyes you are going to see a lot more blue, because you are looking for it now. There is a part of the brain called the reticular activating system (RAS) that chooses what we focus on and blocks out everything else. So when you focus on a problem or a negative feeling you block out everything else and you lose out on a lot of opportunities and even worse when you are living in a negative state and you focus on a negative emotion you start to create problems that aren’t even there.
The second component is strategy. When you set out to accomplish a goal you don’t do it haphazardly, if you do then you are almost assured failure, you need an effective strategy for whatever you are doing. You can be the most motivated person in the best possible state but if you don’t have a STRATEGY for success then you are not going to get the results that you want. The way to find a winning strategy is to model someone who has already achieved the success that you want and by doing that you can turn decades into days. Mike Dillard’s Magnetic Sponsoring is the blueprint for success in this industry and it’s second to none, anyone who has read this or any of his other courses and implemented his instructions can attest to this fact.
The third component is limiting beliefs. You will only reach as far as your limiting beliefs will allow you to; they stop you from charging forwards towards a goal. To be successful you must find what your limiting beliefs are and SHATTER them and insert empowering beliefs. Tony Robbins says that “a belief is nothing more than an idea that you are certain about”, with that being said you can believe just about anything you want so why limit yourself? You can think of a belief as a tabletop and the legs of the table are references. The tabletop is useless without the legs just like a belief is meaningless without references. In most cases people who have had failure in their past tend to have references of failure which perpetuate their limiting beliefs. The greater the failure the greater the limiting belief, the truth is that it does not have to stay this way we are not our past experiences we are actually the lessons that we have learned from those experiences. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
The fourth component is old software. The mind is the greatest computer ever known, if you look around and see all the advancements and innovations around us they all stem from the human brain. So with everything around us evolving and changing it doesn’t make sense to continue to feed the source of all the change with old software, it defeats the purpose. Those that are successful in business are the ones that are not married to their original ideas, if you try something and it does not work you cannot be afraid to leave it behind and try something different. I have heard the definition of insanity described as doing the exact same thing over and over and over again hoping to get a different result.
Live your life with this model in mind and you will excel in business and life, but that is easier said than done. Sometimes we can go about our lives minding our business living just like this model says and suddenly something unexpected happens and the world begins to unravel right before our eyes and that is perfectly normal, after all we’re not robots. The real question is how long will you let it distract you? The longer you remain in your funk over an issue that may or may not be as detrimental as you make it seem, the less time you have to developing your business and enhancing your lifestyle.
Now the ball is in your court. Do you have the courage to leave your comfort zone (which is usually not all that comforting)? do you have the strength to pit your mind against the challenges that come with pursuing life of success and freedom the likes of which your friends and family members cannot imagine?
