Earl Nightingale wasn't wrong. We do - both positive and negative - become what we think about.
So why is it that so many of us focus on the negative things?
Because it’s simply easier to think about the things we don't want – negativity is everywhere.
In our world today, it often feels illogical to think about what we do want when our environment screams otherwise at every turn.
We think in pictures
Think of your fridge. What color is it, what size is it, is it a top to bottom or a left and right opening?
When I said to think of how it opens, you then saw your kitchen, right?
Think of your car. What color is it? Is it big or small, a two door or a four door? Where did you purchase it from?
Now, in neither of those prompts did I say to think in pictures, yet your mind did.
Our brains are hardwired to so do which is why we become what we think about. Images are that powerful.
So why are the pictures in our minds not of what we truly want?
We become what we think about
And write about…
I ask everyone on the first appointment, while getting into demo, to write about goals for 15 minutes.
No filter, whatever comes to mind.
I then give examples and say, whether it's $100,000 weekly, to be on Broadway, or to have a best-selling book on NY times - write it down.
I have the person do this to find out why in the world they're in demo. If someone is just paying the $10 demo sign on and they haven’t thought beyond that, it’s not enough.
You have to know why you're doing what you're doing and why that matters to you.
Everyone wants more money.
Everyone wants better health.
Everyone wants better relationships.
But why for YOU specifically does it matter?
If you're not sure why you care, ask yourself the opposite... who would you be if you don't get those things?
You'll find your importance there for sure. Because we become what we think about.
Check your thoughts
Mindset around your life and what you want is what creates what you want.
And if your thoughts are of not being deserving, good enough, smart enough, old enough, or worthy then what life are you creating?
All of your thoughts determine if you will live the life you truly desire.
Create: to bring into existence
You know that fridge and that car you thought about earlier?
Those two things were once just ideas. And ideas are thoughts.
Just like the fridge and the car, ideas brought about thoughts and thoughts brought about the creation of two inventions the world can hardly live without today.
Thoughts can be changed and ultimately what you create is your choice because we become what we think about.
What mindset will you have in 2021?
In trading this year, will you get into a trade because you're not wanting to?
Will you take a trade and place your parameters based on what you don't want to make and risk?
It almost sounds silly to trade with a negative mindset.
We teach you the opposite: to be intentional with what you do want, what you see as your desired outcome, and your expected risk.
Same thing with life.
Focus on what you do want in life and what you do want is what will show up - just like in trading.
Focus on what you don't want, and don't be surprised when those things are leading your life.
Stop the madness, the insanity, and the negative patterns.
Be illogical for a moment. Be unique.
Focus on your desired life. It's your life so choose what you want to focus on and create.
Start small today and pick one positive thing to picture and let’s get to creating!
