“It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.” –William Somerset Maugham
Success has to be hard, right?
I know I used to think so. I thought that success was synonymous with suffering… long hours, no sleep, no time for fun….
And yet, for as long as I continued to work this way, success remained constantly just out of reach.
The truth is, this idea of “no pain, no gain” is a limiting belief.
That means it’s a belief which I thought was true, but in the end was a lie that was actually holding me back from my true potential.
When I finally realized that I didn’t have to suffer for success, it was very liberating for me.
I realized I could put my efforts into putting time-saving processes into place, instead of just feeling like I had to do everything manually by myself, and shoulder all the responsibility, all the time.
But I had to open my eyes to the possibilities before I could see them.
Can you relate to this? Can you think of things you say to yourself that don’t have to be true?
Maybe you catch yourself focusing on the negative, or focusing on the problems instead of the possible solutions.
We’re all moving somewhere. It’s just a matter of whether you’re moving towards the things you want, or away from them.
The truth is, your perception is your reality… that means you literally create your own reality.
So are you creating the life that you want to lead?
I encourage you to take one positive action today towards your ultimate happiness, and let go of something that is not serving you.
I hope this email helps you begin to understand WHY you act and think a certain way.
No matter what, remember that there’s nothing wrong with the way you think, it’s just programming you picked up along the way. Either it serves you or it doesn’t.
What’s exciting is that once you know WHY you think and act a certain way, you no longer need to be held hostage by the programming of your childhood years. You can be and have everything you’ve ever wanted 🙂
Have a great day!
