Without sounding like I am ‘super spiritual’ or anything (remembering, I am a Trump Supporter) – I have been thinking about my consciousness lately. I don’t mean this in terms of belief in Jesus or anything like that – but more about my own thinking and how I think and process information.
Compared to most I have had an extreme life and a combination of injuries, homelessness, poverty and being on the fringes of society a few times in life.
This put me on the path of not playing the victim; but really putting the focus back onto myself and changing the way I think for the better.
My parents are amazing people and both being immigrants to Australia who came with nothing; they worked hard to build lives for themselves.
Their hard working ethic rubbed off on me and it’s a powerful thing to have and possess (it ultimately saved me from a life of poverty which I was very close too).
Now talking today 6 years on in business, I am winning (touch wood) and it feels great. I am forever going harder than I did before and the challenge I have been working through lately is developing a true abundance mindset.
This is a mindset of achievement, helping others, thinking on how to create more and at least in my own interpretation; being a money making machine. Even though I have had a great work ethic, I used to have a massive poverty mindset that I am still cracking.
I still have a bit of it today in terms of beliefs such as:
– “You shouldn’t be this successful, you are about to lose it”
– “You are only successful because you are lucky”
– “You are a bad person because you are winning”
Really utter BS. Right now I am stripping this thinking as much as I want with much better programs such as:
– “You are a true leader”
– “You deserve lots of money for your success”
– “You are winning because you are a good person”
The last one to me is very important in changing the way I think and I encourage you to do the same! You are winning because you are a good person and it totally rocks. As I think more in the a latter and not the former, my life gets better and I get to help more of the people I love and care for (if I get more successful, I share the blessings).
My advice and thinking? Go abundance. Go hard. It takes years of work to transition one’s thinking (if you are miles behind in poverty land like I was), but everyday it gets better.
These days I hang out with amazing people and we love succeeding in each of our own unique ways. Create your own interpretation of success and love it friends.
