In my last article, I focused on the idea of risk-taking in success, and something that feels really risky to a lot of people is changing the way they think.
Your current way of thinking got you here.
Perhaps you’ve seen or hear this statement before, but have you ever stopped to think about it and how it applies to you?
The way you think about things determines how you feel about them and what actions you take. So, for example, the way you choose to think about the current economy determines what actions you take in your business – everything from who you choose to offer your help to what investments you make to how you set your fees.
And all of those decisions ultimately affect the results you will get.
When you want to grow your business, or help more people, or simply create more income in your business, you will have to think differently than you have in the past! Because your current way of thinking will only get you your current results.
This brings to mind a powerful example from early in my business. It wasn’t until about halfway through December, which was a very profitable month for me, that I learned that most people in my industry thought December was the toughest business month because people were too distracted by Christmas to focus on their own development. So they would lay off their marketing, not offer as many programs, and sure enough, would get the result of an unprofitable month. I wasn’t thinking that way, and I had my best month of the year in December!
I was thinking differently than my peers and I got much different results than they did.
Was it just the thinking that created those results? No – it was the actions I took as a result of the way I was thinking. I was out there helping people through my workshops and talking to people about their problems and offering them my services. And they were saying yes!
One of the first books I ever studied on the topic of creating wealth was Wallace Wattles’ “The Science of Getting Rich.” And in it, he makes the statement: “There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought; it is the hardest work in the world.”
I have certainly found this to be true in my own business journey over the last 7 years! And it’s been my willingness to think differently than most that has landed me in the top 4% of coaches! Even when it feels like hard work to think differently. Even when it means that some people will reject me when I dare to think differently than they do.
Did you know that 3% of the people make 97% of the money on this planet? Do you ever wonder why that is?
What if only 3% are willing to think differently than the other 97%?
Can you imagine how different your life would be if you started thinking more like the 3%? How many more people you could reach with your message? How much good you could bring to the world?
Will you keep thinking the thoughts that have gotten you your current results, or is it time for a change in your thinking?
