I know. It sounds crazy. But think about it. We self-sabotage all the time. Our minds are routinely exposed, subconsciously, to negative thoughts. These thoughts, when not immediately ejected, can evolve into viruses. These viruses affect our ability to believe in ourselves. And when we stop believing in ourselves, game over.
Is She Talking To Me?
So let’s pause here for a minute. Maybe you’re thinking, “This message isn’t for me. I’m good. No crazy self-sabatoge here. I BELIEVE!” But if that’s the case — if you really believe in yourself and in this company — how many phone calls have you made today? This week? This quarter? How many events have you hosted and how many times have you presented the business?
I know. Ouch. I thought the same thing when I heard Randy Gage talk about this very topic at this weekend’s Mastermind Event.
So, what don’t you believe in? We need to figure it out and change our programming. We can program ourselves with prosperity consciousness instead of poverty programming; success instead of failure. We can change our programming to change our beliefs… to change our attitudes… to change our actions. We have to make a DECISION to reach our greatness.
Identify The Viruses
What viruses are ping-ponging around in your brain? What outside messages are creeping into your subconscious. Be on the lookout for thoughts that say it’s more spiritual to be poor, or that wealthy people are inherently greedy, or that rewards are a distraction from family values.
These negative messages are more prevalent than you might think. We pick them up from the media, from the news, from friends and family, and from organizations we belong to. But you can protect yourself from negative viruses. You can become a critical thinker.
Ask yourself, “Am I being affected by negative programming? Are political debates and hashtagging trends making decisions for me?” If we can learn to question the subliminal messages in every book, TV show, and movie we take in, we will prevent others from programming our minds. We will remain in control of our thoughts. We will have a positive attitude.
3 Things To Know About Fear
What I love about network marketing is that it allows us to get our money problems out of the way so we can step into our greatness. But first, we have to overcome our fears; we have to get rid of our negative programming. So here are three things to know about fear:
1) There is no such thing as a fearless leader. Everyone has fears. And that’s ok. Yes — you read that right. I’m afraid. You’re afraid. We’re all afraid. And that’s ok. But what’s NOT ok is to give up. It’s not ok to quit. It’s not ok to convince yourself that starting over is the right thing to do. That’s the fear talking. Don’t listen to it. You’re stronger than that.
2) Action kills fear. Once you’ve adjusted your beliefs and attitudes, it’s time to take action. That’s the only real way to reach results. Pick up the phone and call a prospect. Call your upline and plan an event. Get in your car and drive to a meeting. MOVE!
3) Things don’t change just because you do. I see people running scared all the time. They hit a plateau in this business and it stops them dead in their tracks. It’s paralyzing. So they quit. But you know what doesn’t quit when you do? The fear. The stress. The bills. The problems don’t quit. They just move with you. And do you know what we call that? Baggage. And it will weigh you down and prevent you from reaching your greatness no matter where you go. It follows you. And it gets heavier. The truth is that no one has ever had a breakthrough in their comfort zone. And no one has solved their problems by quitting.
Your greatness awaits you. It’s yours if you’ll have it. Waste no time. Go after your greatness with everything you have and claim your destiny.
