Mind Your Business and Your Business Will Mind You

“As a man thinketh so is he.”

This may come as a shock to you, but your mind has everything to do with your current state of being right now. How many times have you said “I wish I could?” Why don’t you?

Here’s a fact! The mind can be your greatest asset or your worst investment. It stops you before you even get started.

The mind causes you to self doubt, debate and quit with yourself. You will never win fighting yourself.

In fact, you will be quicker to find an excuse as to why you can’t do something versus figuring out how it can be done. Successful people know this because this is what separates them from everyone else.

The more you think about what it is you want to do, you need to position yourself in that direction.

1. Stay away from negative people. This seems simple, but it’s not. You must have discernment in how to detect negativity from negative people. Sometimes it can be a word, an action and even a smile.

2. Speak over you and your situation.. It’s ok to encourage yourself in the journey. You must be your biggest cheerleader for success.

3. Don’t talk about, be about it. People expect you to fail. Talk is cheap. When you put action behind your words, things manifest.

I remember questioning myself about why I wasn’t where I wanted to be in life. I had the education, the experience, the knowledge and the skills, but not the confidence. Yes.. the mind can steal that too. Then I realized that confidence is an inside job. The mindset of a boss is what’s needed to mind your business

No one can make you feel better about yourself but you. Everyday make it a practice of thinking great thoughts and doing great things for you. Don’t fall into old habits. Create new habits that will enable you to be your best self while making an impact.

7 Steps to Having Great Karma in Your Life

The energy of people who always seem happy and enjoy life can be contagious. Have you ever said to yourself “Why is it that these type of people draw a crowd and seem to attract everyone to them like a magnet?” Did you ever stop to think that it’s their positive attitude and the way they look and react to the world around them?

Mindset is everything. Having a positive attitude can do more than anything else towards getting you whatever you want out of life. They way you think and act says a lot about you as a person. Those who are in positions to make things happen for you will want to be around you and want to work with you to help make your dreams become a reality. Having a positive attitude in whatever you do will make things easier, less complicated and even more enjoyable.

Being successful and happy starts with a positive attitude.

Listed below are seven simple, but powerful strategic tips to assist you with having a more positive attitude and thus becoming a more powerful person.

1. Be passionate and action oriented towards living your life. Don’t just make it through the day, live it to the fullest without complaints. Dig your teeth into the grind of the day and live it like it was your last day on earth. Wring every moment out of it and live each day with passion. Passion and a positive attitude are contagious. You will find others attracted to you who are just as passionate about living and life. Set goals and complete them as expected. Here’s 50 Steps Towards Achieving Your Goals.

2. Be active instead of reacting to it. Don’t wait until something bad happens then try to deal with it. Be proactive and make something good happen constantly. You are solely responsible for what you make of the life you have. You only have one great life so don’t waste it. Create the best life you possibly can one day at a time.

3. Believe that each moment is perfect regardless of its outcome. Life is going to happen. That is a fact of life. How you deal with it matters and determines the results. Don’t allow the misfortunes to drag you down. Good can come from everything no matter how bad it may be at the time. Learn to open yourself up to learn from each experience. Gain strength from the bad things that happen in your life. Learning to have a positive attitude even when bad things are happening will help you to get through the bad times even stronger and drive you to be more than determined to succeed.

4. Learn to always be grateful for what you have. Gratitude determines your altitude. It’s a well-known fact among successful people that having gratitude will get you more than just satisfaction. There’s nothing wrong with having dreams and goals and desiring more out of life, but don’t forget to be grateful for what you already have. Those who are never satisfied or grateful with what they have fall into a “needy” or “poverty” mindset where they think they never have have anything. Eventually their poor attitude will doom them for ever having anything.

A positive attitude attracts positive actions. Gratitude attracts positive energy.

5. Daily.. Seize every opportunity that you can instead of regretting it later. Now, whatever you do, don’t put yourself in the poorhouse or take food out of your children’s mouths chasing every get-rich-quick scheme that comes around the corner. However, don’t be afraid to make and take opportunities that feel right. Do your research. Understand what’s required and factor in what the opportunity requires. Successful people have taught themselves to have a sixth sense when it comes to taking advantage of new opportunities. Keep in mind, nothing comes from comfort. The inevitable of success requires you to strentch yourself.

6. Always keep a good sense of humor. Laughing at yourself is the best medicine. People like to be around those who find humor in even the most awkward moments. Learn to laugh out loud and you will be more positive, especially if you can learn to laugh at yourself. Don’t take yourself, or life, too seriously. Life is much too short to waste it moping around in self pity. Don’t invite people to a pity party either. Humor is very attractive. A positive attitude can be born from a strong sense of humor.

7. Have the belief that you are in charge of your destiny. Your dreams will give you purpose.. No one can take your dreams from you except for you. As long as there’s breath in your body, there is no limit to how much you can accomplish. Life is not something that is going on around you. It is simply what you make of it. By doing nothing you are still creating your life but it may not be the one you desire. Why not get involved and create a life you want and can enjoy? Just remember, it all starts with you and learning to have a positive mental attitude.

Anyone who is truly successful and enjoys life, has a life to be proud of. This person more than likely has a positive attitude.

If you use these seven steps to develop a positive attitude, then you too will live a life worth living filled with happiness.

Are You Stuck in a Dead End Career? Here’s How to Free Yourself.

Let’s face it. You will spend half your life working doing something to earn a living. Either you will work for someone building their dreams or you will work for yourself and build your own.

If you are going to do it (work that is), you should enjoy it. Even though it sounds crazy, work can be enjoyable. Do you have a choice where you work and what you do? Yes you do. The decision is all up to you. Check out these tips for finding a new career.

Your career is what you will be remembered for succeeding in.

Happiness is a choice and so is a career. I advise those who are confused about what it is they want to do of this simple point. Do what makes you feel complete, useful and purposeful.

Social media is a great place to network and connect with others. Use platforms like LinkedIn to help you connect with others in your desired field. Get engaged, learn something new and promote yourself.

Is it always about the money? It depends. Is money inportant to you or do you need more than just money? Only you can honestly answer that question. What’s important to you? They are important to me. The more time I have, and money, I can spend it with them creating new memories.

There are so many creative ways to make money. I found this great gig to make extra income just by giving my opinion. How cool is that?

For me, I love balance. I can make all the money in the world and still be unhappy. But if I love what I do, the money is a bonus and makes me work even smarter. The money also will give you freedom to do as you please. Balance, FREEDOM and money…

Money is a tool and if used intentionally, it can give leverage to balance your happiness and your responsibilities.

Never, ever.. GIVE UP! Whatever your dreams and desires are in a career and life, choose wisely with purpose. Keep recreating yourself and trying something different. If you hate it, change it. Don’t be a victim to circumstance or excuse.

Remember.. you are not a tree. If you want to move, get up and do it with a plan. Planning ahead and in advance gives you authority. Today, not tomorrow because life is not promised, is the day to start living your dreams.
