Leaning In To Success
Leaning into success is as simple as it sounds. Just lean in. And at the same time it takes true self awareness, a courageous mindset, and fearless passion to truly succeed wholeheartedly in whatever your endeavor, whether it is a career, a business, an adventure, or a relationship.
The power is yours
You and only you have the power to decide how you feel, how you spend your time, what’s important, and what truly matters. No one else has the power to “make you feel” anything. That is all up to you. When you realize this fact, life can truly change and become more powerful, happy, joyful and successful.
Focus on Growth
Become a lifelong learner. Be curious. Ask questions. Explore new thoughts and possibilities. Think outside the box. Don’t get stuck in tradition, culture or family expectations or traditions. Try new things. Read books from a variety of authors and thought leaders. Take a class or attend lectures. Never give up taking in new information. You don’t have to accept it all. Sift through the information and keep what feels right to you. But never stop learning.
People will rarely work at their maximum potential under criticism - this includes self talk
Are you your best cheerleader or own worst enemy? How do you handle mistakes? Are you a difficult person to yourself? What does your mind chatter sound like? Practice self soothing dialogue and nurturing conversation with yourself. Consider how you would talk to a child who spills the milk by mistake. Practice gentle, nurturing self talk and see how much better you feel and more successful you are.
Visualize this thing that you want; see it, feel it, believe in it. Make it your mental blueprint and begin to build.
In order to reach your goals you must be able to visualize the finish line. What do you want that finish line to look like. More importantly, how do you envision the journey. Do you want it to be difficult and filled with obstacles? Or would you prefer fun, inspiring and joyful. Spend time each day thinking and visualizing how you want the day to go. How you want the week or month to play out. Visualize happiness, inspiration, joy, and success and then look for it wherever you go. It will be there, I promise.
Are you an original? Discover the secret to propelling yourself (and the world) forward
Don’t be afraid to be original. Be you, boldly. You are on this planet for a reason and it isn’t to play small. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. You will find your right way by sometimes going the wrong way. Go anyway. If you live your life less than what your purpose is you will feel unfulfilled and weary. Go for it! Be the you you are meant to be.
What’s Holding you back?
Is fear holding you back. Fear of what? Fear of who? Fear of looking stupid? Fear of injury to your pride? Fear of rejection? Fear of feeling bad? Fear of uncertainty? Fear of being ordinary?
Fear holds so many of us back from living the lives we were meant to live. Lives filled with love, joy, peace, success, and contentment. What if you look stupid, or are rejected, or ordinary. And, what if you are brilliant?
There are countless famous people who failed, sometimes many, many times, before finding success. The key to their success was that they did not give up but continued to try again and again and again. The worst failure is never trying at all.
When you open yourself up and say “I can do that. I can become successful. I can overcome this obstacle,” that’s more powerful than anything else in the world.
It starts with a dream. A passion. And a belief in yourself. According to the law of attraction, you get what you think about. If you focus on failure you will see, feel and find failure. And if you focus on success you will find success. As Winston Churchill said “never ever give up.”
Dream big! Live boldly! You’ll change your life and in turn you’ll change the world!
