In the current economy many people and businesses are thinking in
terms of survival rather than prospering. Your current dominant
thought patterns accurately predict your future. The root of the
word scarcity is scared and success and money never follow fear.
The good news is that you can not only survive but thrive in this
or any other economy.
The first thing you must do to succeed is to change the questions
you ask yourself. Instead of asking how you can survive, ask
yourself how you can thrive. Look for problems and the opportunity
gaps created by the common problems that many are encountering.
Every problem brings great opportunity. The glass is not half empty
and the glass is not half full. The glass is always full. It's is
full of a mixture of liquid and air. It's only the limitations of
your philosophy and the training of your brain that keep you from
seeing that reality. However, most people feel they are being
positive if they see the glass as half full. The reality is you
must understand and embrace the concept that the glass is always
full for you to be able to see and recognize that fact.
When you completely eliminate the possibility for anything but
moving forward, succeeding and thriving, you will begin to
experience the results you desire. You will completely understand
and embrace any and all setbacks in your path as positive and
recognize the lessons learned from them and then adjust.
The key part of this equation is the philosophy of responsibility.
When you make a declaration to stop blaming any and all things for
your results but yourself, you will see more opportunity.
Your results and success are not based upon good or bad economies,
good or bad workplaces, good or bad teachers, good or bad bosses.
Your success is simply determined by you and you alone. You have
the free will to determine your thoughts philosophies and actions.
Massive success and massive failure have equal access and the seeds
of both are sewn as easy as flipping on a switch.
If you are suffering in this economy, ask yourself what allowed
your limitations to allow you or your business to be so negatively
One is a horrible number for business and success. Were
you depending on one revenue stream, one type of customer or one
product? Did you have a built in continuity program for your
business and income that tend to lessen the affects of economic
downturns? Have you looked to see if there is a business within
your business that can be explored, created or maximized? Have you
looked to speed up, slow down or create a different delivery
channel or experience in that channel?
The answers are always there but you have to ask the questions and
allow your imagination to attract or create the answer. Sometimes,
just working harder is more of a hindrance than an effective answer
to your problems. The hamster runs faster on the wheel but never
reaches a destination and just gets tired and quits. There are only
1,440 minutes in every day.
The answer comes in carving out a part of your day to simply be
still. Be still to allow your mind to ask questions, and seek
meditation for the answers. All thoughts create energy. That energy
will allow matching energy. However, you have to be willing to see,
feel and understand when those answers come your way. If you are
not ready, you may see the glass as half empty or half full but you
will never the see the glass as full. The full glass is always
there, you have to be looking for it to see it.
