How to prepare for success?
Have you ever wondered why success looks so easy to a small select few and the masses seem to struggle to get by?
Those few people seem to expect success no matter what they do.
Do you want to know their secret…
They prepare to succeed, by mastering the only thing on earth that can be mastered, …the self, and more specifically, the mind.
When I was young, my dad would take me for long drives along the waterfront, and we would drive through the most exclusive neighborhoods. He would point to the million dollar estates and say, “Dawn, if you want to be successful in life, find out what these people do and do it!” He was a doer and the only way he could imagine the owners of the big houses getting there was by doing something different than he did.
As I grew older, I wanted to know more about what people did to become successful. I soon found out that they were not all doctors and lawyers or engineers with advanced degrees as I had been told. They were artists, authors, a plumber, and a woman whose husband died and left her with nothing and she did what she knew how to do, she baked! And she baked her way to the big house on the water. I was young, and it made a huge impact on me to see that these people were just like I was. They were curious, creative, and full of possibility. Eventually, I realized if I wanted to be successful, I had to find out what successful people think and then spend the rest of my life aligning my thoughts with those thoughts. The real magic for me was learning not to think like them, but learning to think for myself.
In order to be successful we must think of ourself as successful.
And still few of us know how to change our thoughts so we can prepare ourselves for continuous growth and success.
Learning how to think so your thoughts guide your feelings and your actions is the most important thing you can do for yourself. You do this by developing your mind.
“…your mind is equipped with mental muscles, just as yourbody is equipped with physical muscles. You already know how to develop your body’s physical muscles through exercise to develop your mind, you need to develop your “mental muscles,” which are your “intellectual faculties.” excerpt from 7 Keys to Freedom: The Ultimate Guide to Developing the Mind
