Did you know anything the mind conceives it can achieve? Yes it can! Now that can be good news of bad news, because we can come up with some amazing or pretty stupid thoughts in our head. Do you want success in your life or your Network Marketing business? I am sure you said YES! Then, do you guard the door to your mind with your thoughts? Remember – Garbage in, Garbage out!
We live in a world where we have been designed for success and programmed for failure. We are bombarded daily by the media, well meaning friends, and family who give us advice based on their personal fears, worries and doubts in their own lives. I see too many people sabotage, make excuses, lie, hurt others and sacrifice valuable things in their lives, as though it is normal or acceptable. The gap between black and white has expanded with a lot of grey area for many people, to the point where anything goes or certain behaviour is acceptable. People have lost their sense or values and morals to where they turn and look the other way, avoiding confrontation around critical life issues, rather than speaking up or addressing their own personal behavior, including what others do around them. And yet, we complain the world is in a sad state of affairs.
A wise man who understood the human condition better than most of us basically said for you and I to see the change we want in the world we must first become that change. We say we want Peace, Commitment, Love, Compassion, Loyalty, Honor, Respect, Understanding and Acceptance shown to us. So, do we show that to others as well? He had no idea going from being a lawyer to what he undertook would change the world forever! He just wanted to do what was the proper and decent thing to do that was not getting done in his time. We know him as Mohandas Gandhi!
Remember, we will attract exactly how we think and are being. Just like smokers attract each other or negative people do likewise. Misery loves company, and so when we compromise our values, thinking we are happy and doing what we want, then what goes around will come around for you and I, and we will be right back at square one. As the old adage goes, “We can run but we cannot hide!”
Are you right now exactly where you have been before with similar results and actions? Are people around you looking at you as though you have a 3rd eye on your forehead? And are you avoiding confrontation or dealing with yourself?
In the past I was guilty of running away from things or living a “fake” happiness that people saw right through. That behavior eventually led to me crashing and burning, hitting rock bottom. Actually, way past rock bottom in my case! So, what I did immediately is get real with myself, seek sound straight forward help, without fluff or pats on the back, in order to change and interrupt my patterns. The path of least resistance is always easier to take. Running away is always easier to do. Denial is always easier to take on. To aid me further along in the right direction, I stopped hanging around people who told me what I wanted to hear, and who condoned my behavior. I gave those genuinely concerned about me permission to call me on my stuff, and to hold a mirror constantly in my face, so that I could not repeat my past behaviour ever again! WOW What a difference it has made in my life on ALL levels. I have transformed into a new person.
The truth is none of us really see ourselves for who we are, just like a person who has bad body odor does not always know they stink, because we get used to our own ways, and for that matter smell. Only someone who wants to be true to themselves, and is sincere and genuine to be a “real core person” will seek the right environment to get help. If not, anything we do will be short lived, because it simply will not be able to sustain itself based on our energy and who we are “being”.
Keep in mind that NOTHING is wrong with you that you have to fix yourself. You are wonderful, beautiful and amazing just the way you are, because God does not create mistakes. Just stay in touch with yourself and how you are being, because things have a way of sneaking up on us and knocking us off our feet, when we compromise our values. Remember, what goes around will come around. How your deal with and treat others can be a blessing to you or a curse! No one in their right mind ever thinks to defy gravity, because it is a law set in place by the universe for our protection and enjoyment of life. Therefore, never ever go against set laws with other important things in life that are undeniable as well. There is where true happiness lives and flourishes!
Do you really and truly want success in life and in your Network Marketing business right NOW? Then talk to someone who will tell you as it is, and will not candy coat anything for you. I call those people true friends in my life, and I have very few of them and I keep them close to me:) It will take true courage, humility and vulnerability on your part, and being an extremely great listener. There begins the journey of true self-discovery and peace of mind for you. Enjoy the journey it is worth every step!
