How often do you hear this? I would, but I can’t. I can’t afford to buy this; I can’t afford to invest in that. I CAN’T, I CAN’T.
That’s not the winning mentality. Winners ask themselves HOW? HOW can I buy that, HOW can I find the money to invest?
The “can’t” mentality is a negative mentality. It’s easier not to do. I mean working hard is hard. It takes heart, effort, persistence and perseverance. These things are not built in like a light switch. For others, it comes much easier. For some, it takes hard work. The beauty is you can become all these things.
The winning mentality is, “I will until….” Until I accomplish my goal. I will until I am successful. Winners don’t give up. Failure after failure, winners look at this as a learning lesson. If this didn’t work, they keep trying and trying until it works.
Winners take action. Procrastinators wait. They wait for the right time because of spouses, kids or money. They use the very reasons they should take action as excuses. How does that make sense? It’s only YOU that’s holding yourself back. It’s only YOU that’s getting in the way of your dreams.
I am a firm believer in “if there’s a will, there’s a way”. If your heart is in it, your mind and body will find the way. Keep at it; you don’t give up when something doesn’t go as planned. It will take time, it will take hard work. If you don’t have the winning mentality, then your first step would be to get it. Replace I CAN’T, with HOW CAN I…
Baby steps…you’re on your way!
