Some people have issues visualizing themselves being successful, they just like to watch successful people, envy them, but they can’t simply see themselves in their shoe. This has got to be one of the most important obstacles there is to becoming successful!
Doing some Reality Checks, and in particular when we start looking at what we say TO ourselves everyday, chances are high we will notice the huge amount of NEGATIVITY that flies all around our thoughts; a Big number of “I Don’t , I Can’t, I Shouldn’t, NO, Not, DON’T… ”
Just do this small experiment for me now, Open your inbox, pull of All the emails you’ve sent in 2013, and look up if you ever used “Remember to send me…” instead of “Don’t Forget to send me…” it’s this small change that you will do on purpose that will flood all of your life with Positive!
I was giving a Seminar on how to Set & Execute Goals the other day, and I gave an example, of the Walls that we put before ourselves; those same walls that prevent us from moving forward towards our goals… and the First Wall, is your own inventory of yourself! and the Very FIRST common Wall, is saying “I Don’t Have enough money” instead of saying “I Do Have Will Power”, is saying “I Don’t Have the right Tools” instead of saying “I Do Have good Health, and I Do have Faith in myself… I’m on my way 🙂 ”

This week’s Tip, is simply about you changing your attitude about yourself starting by changing the vocabulary you use everyday.
- Start Substituting: The I with the YOU or the We, the “Don’t Forget” by “Please Remember”, the “I Don’t have” with “I Do have “
- Think Positively: You see positive thinking may not make the impossible possible and it’s a fact, but it surely helps you MORE than Negative thinking would.
- Remember: YOU ARE YOUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET… TAKE CARE OF YOUR SELF!
Happy New Year!
