Lately I’ve been swamped with tasks that need to be done pronto. I’m trying to write a book, build a website for my upcoming coaching service launch, stay in contact with my core circle and build my network…all when I have no idea how to do them.
But I have one thing that helps me – I’m too far in to find something new to accomplish. On my journey to launch a coaching service, I’ve had many people…from friends to well-intentioned acquaintances tell me to give up my vision and see reality. Get a job, any job and become a dutiful, “responsible” citizen.
I truly believe that their advice was the correct advice to give someone in my circumstance. I also felt a stronger urge to continue progressing on my terms. Time will tell if I chose right but at least I chose.
With that in mind, I want to share a devotional I read today that speaks to what I just mentioned. It’s from Steve Siebold’s “177 Mental Toughness Secrets Of The World Class” #165…check it out
“The life each of us lives is the life within the limits of our own thinking. to have life more abundant, we must think in limitless terms of abundance.” – Thomas Dreier, author
While average performers think about how to survive with the least amount of pain and struggle, the world class thinks big and plans their brilliant futures. Ask people around you what they think about at any given time, and you might be surprised to learn how many think about just getting by. The world class refers to this as “selling yourself short.” Their philosophy seems to be, “If you’re going to be thinking, you may as well think big.” Their love-and abundance-based consciousness is the engine that drives their big thoughts and creative ideas. The great ones are fearless and focused on manifesting their ultimate dreams.
While the middles class thinks about how to avoid pain, the world class thinks about how to gain gratification. One group views the world as a scary place, and the other sees it as an exciting adventure with endless possibilities. The masses see life as a threat; the great ones see it as a game. The difference in thinking is so dramatic between these two groups that, when you talk to them, it’s as though you’re speaking to people from different planets.
The champions’ abundance-based consciousness drive them to think and dream bigger with each passing success.
Are you selling yourself short? Are you thinking too small?
