6 Easy Attitude Adjustments >>> Get Big Results!

ButterfliesDid you know ATTITUDE affects your entire life?

Did you know at the core of a great attitude is PERSPECTIVE?

Your perspective has a huge effect on your overall level of health, happiness and success.

Why?

Because all things can be viewed in several ways.

You can choose to see invitation or limitation!

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” ~~Zig Ziglar

6 Tips to bring greater happiness and success into your life

1. Each day make a list of things you’re grateful for.

Gratitude is often overlooked because it somehow lacks pizzazz. I attribute much of my success and happiness to gratitude. Believe it or not, my challenging childhood actually helped my level of gratitude!

You can practice gratitude before you get up in the morning, in the shower, while driving or perhaps when you get into bed at night (my favourite time : )

Why does gratitude work?

Gratitude raises your VIBRATION and ultimately it’s your vibration that determines the RESULTS in your life.

If you’re in a low vibration, life is hard.
A HIGH vibration naturally moves you into the people, opportunities, circumstances you want i.e. the RESULTS you want.

2. Love life, not stuff.

Do you ever feel more possessions will make you happy?

What usually happens is after you acquire something, it doesn’t mean as much as you thought it would. The QUALITY of your life itself is what brings the most happiness, not your stuff.

However I often suggest going for “stuff” if that’s what you want because it’s important to have that experience.

There will come a time where you understand life is so much more than stuff.
Money is VERY handy but it DOES NOT necessarily bring happiness on its own.

What does bring happiness is what you’re DOING every day.
Are you excited about what you do?

If not, choose to find information that helps you live your passion.
Until you’re going for something meaningful to you, life will be meaningless.

I loved Kevin McCloud’s documentary called “Slumming It” because it reminded me and my family about what is important in life.
See my story here:
Has Your Pursuit of the Material Been At the Expense of Happiness?

3. Enjoy the journey.

Our society has trained us to be in a hurry and expect immediate gratification.

I show people how to create worthy goals and achieve them however I also teach that the underlying reason for every goal is… GROWTH.

While it’s fun to achieve goals, it’s the growth we get from the journey that gives TRUE satisfaction.

If you want to see a situation as an INVITATION, then you will.
If you want to see a situation as a LIMITATION, then you will.

“We find things where we look for them,
which is why I never look for a golf ball out of bounds.” ~~ Robert Brault

4. Believe in yourself.

Life is far more pleasant when you have faith in yourself. Remember: You’ve already achieved many amazing things in your life.

Even learning to walk meant falling over and getting up countless times, but you didn’t get annoyed with yourself.

How many times are you willing to fall down and get back up?
When you believe in yourself and expect success, you’re more likely to succeed.

5. It doesn’t have to be hard work.

Achieving something worthwhile DOES NOT necessarily need a lot of effort
(although action and persistence are required : )

I’ve discovered if you keep hitting obstacles on your mission, that’s a sign there’s a better way and all it takes is a few minutes to pause and reflect. There’s ALWAYS more than one way to get what you want : )

Read the book You2  by Price Pritchett to see why “trying harder” isn’t always the way through!
I’ve read that book many times!

Image - Change your Perspective6. There’s no such thing as failure.

Remember a basketball player who is unwilling to go for the goal will NEVER score.

People who succeed fail
A LOT!

I’ve used Go For No to help me become friends with the word “no” and beyond that see it as an asset.

Go For No will help you be willing to fall flat on your face and go on to WIN : )

If you’re willing to keep going, I assure you, you WILL build confidence. After all, much of the time we’re afraid to fail because of the fear of what others will think or say about us.

Failure and persistence make us immune to other people’s opinions and what a GREAT attitude that is : )
That kind of freedom is priceless.

One of the most powerful messages we can ever hear is…

YOU HAVE CHOICE.

You hold the key.

Choose your perspective.

Go for it!

7 DO’s and 3 DON’Ts! Ten Proven Success Activities to Get Anything You Want (Part 2)

Let’s get into Proven Success Activities 6 – 10.

In Part 1 of this two-part series we discussed proven success activities 1 – 5.
Ensure you DO ACTIVITY NUMBER ONE first, because only then will you be motivated to do the other activities.

KEEP REACHING FOR THE STARS
KEEP REACHING FOR THE STARS

 

In short, ACTIVITY is the most potent way to get anything you want.

“By THOUGHT, the thing you want is brought to you;

by ACTION you receive it.”

~~ Wallace D. Wattles

But what do we mean by ACTIVITY? Read on to find out.

6. DO Fail Your Way to Success

“In order to succeed your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”
~~ Bill Cosby

Do you allow the fear of failure to lock you into endless PROCRASTINATION?

“We can either tiptoe through life and hope we get to death without being too badly bruised or we can live a full life, complete life achieving our goals and realizing our wildest dreams.”
~~ Bob Proctor

Failure is an interesting concept. When something goes “wrong” we think u-oh what does that mean? It merely means you’re on track moving into something better. All you MUST do is stay focused on what you want.

Do you think there are only two directions in life – failure OR success?

How do you see the world?

Failure <– <– YOU –> –> Success1

OR… do you see…

YOU –> –> Failure –> –> Success

Most people think failure is “EITHER/OR”.

Instead, failure is merely feedback and a part of the journey to success. As discussed in the article How Could Every Failure Be a Success?

Why does being WILLING TO FAIL help you get anything you want?

Knowledge and understanding precedes change – see the article Discover the First Key Element to Getting What You Want. Re-frame your beliefs about failure.

Go_For_No__BookIn Go For No by Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton tell us of a whole psychology embracing failure to achieve faster and bigger success.

They even say “willingness” to fail isn’t enough, it’s essential to develop a “wantingness” to fail. They explain why the faster you fail and the bigger you fail, the faster you’ll achieve success.

When you embrace failure as a path to going bigger, you let go of all the angst and shame surrounding the word.

You’ll see failure as a fun adventure.

You’ll feel safe taking action.

You’ll choose to applaud every ACTION you take as a SUCCESS.

(whether or not the outcome is “seen” as success)

You only fail if you quit. Keep going and success is inevitable.

Of course, if things keep going wrong then it’s time to reassess your direction.

Everything is happening for your good. Hindsight will show you why things happened the way they did and that we’re too quick to judge!

How to fail your way to success:

1. If you’re too afraid to fail, you will never DO anything new. Keep looking for ways to ACT. Don’t wait… Do it.
2. Get more inspiration from Go For No.
(1Sourced from the book Go For No P. 29)

7. DO Choose a GREAT Attitude… and DO keep making it even better

FireworksHow’s your attitude today?

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal. Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” ~~ Thomas Jefferson

Why does a GREAT ATTITUDE help you get anything you want?

Attitude is VITAL !!! Without a great attitude, even the most incredible talents and education won’t get you there.

Have a look – many people with multiple degrees aren’t doing well.

It is NOT about education, degrees, talent.

1st comes your ATTITUDE

2nd comes your intelligence, education and talent

“It’s your attitude, not your aptitude that will determine your altitude.”
~~ Zig Ziglar

How to have a great attitude:

You have 100% control over your attitude. Expand your perspective (see Pt 9).

Thinking Into Results is the way I help motivate people into “bettering” their attitude. From GOOD TO GREAT and from AWFUL TO AWESOME. In fact Thinking Into Results moves ALL these 10 success activities into your every day life.

8. DO More Than You’re Paid For

Bee in rose“It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life…that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

If your first thought is to GET from a situation or a person, you’ve already lost. What can you GIVE?

Always GIVE your BEST no matter what… now and forever.

Why does DOING MORE than you’re paid for help you get anything you want?

You become what you think about. When your thoughts and actions are ABUNDANT they move you into even greater abundance.

You’ll always be generously rewarded by first being of service and by first GIVING your BEST. Read more about this in my book.

How to start doing more than you’re paid for:

Do what you love! I’m NOT saying live a life of endless grind doing what you hate. Forget that. I AM saying decide what you want (see Part 1) and meanwhile do your best work while staying focused on where you’re going. Your thoughts become things so if you always GIVE your best, you will always GET the best. You will move into what you want.

9. DO Expand Your Perspective

old-young-woman-illusion
WHAT DO YOU SEE?

Do you see an old woman or
a young girl?

“Those who say it can’t be done ought to get out of the way of those doing it” ~~ George Bernard Shaw

Perspective is your point of view and there is ALWAYS another point of view in all situations.

Do you see INVITATION or LIMITATION?

Once you can see another viewpoint you cannot “unsee” it. Once the light is on you can’t turn it off! You are forever evolving.

Why does EXPANDING YOUR PERSPECTIVE help you get anything you want?

If you LOOK for a PROBLEM, you will FIND IT.

If you LOOK for an OPPORTUNITY, you will FIND IT.

Most people see situations only ONE way – in their limited way.

The greater your PERSPECTIVE,

the greater your CHOICES,

the greater your RESULTS.

I’ve said for years, “There’s always an answer” and I’ve always found it to be true.

What you LOOK for you will FIND.

How to expand your perspective:

1. PRETEND you can see several points of view.

I know that sounds strange but it works! Ask yourself, “If I were someone who could see two opportunities in this situation – what would they be?”

2. Dream big and you’ll be willing to see other points of view. So get that dream happening. See Part 1.

10. DO Engage Persistence

Waves on beach
AND THE WAVES KEEP COMING

Are you persistent or do you give up?

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ~~ Martin Luther King Jr.

I’ve put this as #10 however LACK OF PERSISTENCE is the main thing causing people to fail. Because THEY QUIT.

As already mentioned, there’s no such thing as failure (Pt.6), because it which can be viewed as many things (use Perspective Pt.9). Feedback, learning, wisdom.
But you WILL fail if you quit.

Most successful people experience some kind of setback on their journey. This is because life is fundamentally about “lessons” and a lesson is repeated until learned. Growth is why you’re here. It’s the journey that makes it fun, not just the destination.

Why does PERSISTENCE help you get anything you want?

It’s simple. Keep taking action and your success is inevitable.

Look at sport. If a basketball or soccer player didn’t keep shooting for the goal, they’d never score.

Most people give up way too easily.

PERSISTENCE will be your friend.

GROWTH your ultimate reward.

How to develop persistence:

1. Make an “advanced decision” to keep going no matter what. Just like you’d book a ticket on an airline and be there on the day no matter what.

If your mind plays tricks on you and encourages you to give up, you can say, “Well, fortunately I’ve made an advanced decision to do xyz every day no matter what.”

2. Look at Andrea and Richard’s Go for No program. This gives you perspective as well as staying power.

Study children. Notice it doesn’t matter how many times you say, “no” they don’t take it personally. They always ask one more time – just in case you’ve changed your mind.

And while you’re here…

The following will HELP YOU DO these 10 proven success activities every day.

1. DO take responsibility for your life. It’s a gift that you DO have control over how you think, feel and act. Use it!

2. DO stop conforming. The need to gain approval from others keeps most people from getting what they want. Become a powerful leader… of yourself! My book and Thinking Into Results show you how to overcome the old programming – and launch yourself into the FREEDOM you deserve.

3. DO hold your BIG EXCITING DREAM in your mind as you DO all these activities. All day, every day.

4. DO have fun. Life can be too serious. Actively look for ways to relax and laugh.

DO the above points with a LIGHT HEART!

How Could Every Failure Be a Success?

GO WITH THE FLOW
GO WITH THE FLOW

We never “fail”… we’re just afraid we might.

(and who decides it’s “failure” because really and truly there’s no such thing : )

Even if you said you’d failed I’d say, “Congratulations – you’re moving… many are stuck so far back in fear, they might never move! You’re already further ahead.”

Today I’m emphasizing the advantages of MOVING INTO ACTION, that even if you make mistakes you’re still further ahead.

I’m also giving you an easy technique, to get you moving.

“Courage is being scared to death – and saddling up anyway.”

~~ John Wayne

The great thing about MOVING is it’s easier to change direction.

Imagine a vehicle.
– How hard is it to change direction while standing still? Very hard.
– How hard is it to change direction while moving? Very easy.

Studies show that people who achieve what they want, do it through trial and error.

Yes, a mistake is an indicator of success

How successful can you be if you’re DOING NOTHING?

Today I have some words of wisdom from Dr Maxwell Maltz author of Psycho-Cybernetics and below you’ll see a great technique I use – that you can start using today.

I was intrigued when I first heard that a rocket arrives at its destination through a series of mistakes (it fails its way there?) and that our subconscious mind is a mechanism operating in a similar way.

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

~~ Albert Einstein

According to Dr Maltz, our subconscious is in fact a “machine” we use.

We direct this machine using our conscious mind.

So, how is the mechanism in a rocket similar to your subconscious mind?

Have a look at this interesting list of similarities:

  • They are both goal-striving mechanisms.
  • They are both impersonal (your subconscious mind does not see things as good or bad it just goes ahead and creates your outside world according to your thinking – whether that serves you or not)
  • They must both be moving to get to their goal (sounds obvious yet most people don’t move)
  • They both reach their destination (goal) through trial and error. When they go forward, they make mistakes and correct their course. They are therefore further ahead.
