If you’ve ever felt like you’ve been dealt a shady hand or that you’re constantly striving for a win - know you are not alone and that you can rejoice!
I am so thankful for the opportunities in life to dig deep and push harder. Why? What an invaluable opportunity to build strength of character and a stronger, more competent businesses. Without adversity, our joy and our victories would not be as sweet! I would like to encourage you in whatever you are facing to know we are never victims of circumstance.
Think about it...
We have the opportunity to soar or sink dependant on a number of factors which are in our power.
- Our Work Ethic
- Our Attitude
- Our Support System
Whether or not you were born into a family who set you up for success and encouraged you to move forward in your life, or into a toxic environment where each move felt like a sabotage on your destiny, you have the power to take your life by the reins and find success.
You have the ability to find mentors, change your story, and undo lies spoken. You may have to do more work than someone born with a silver spoon in their mouth - but I want to encourage you that you have the capacity, ability, and right to do that.
Do we “deserve” to pamper ourselves? Do we “deserve” success? Do we “deserve” happiness? I don’t know. Who am I to say? You deserve what you’ve worked for - so make it count. If we get so tied up in what we deserve and what we don’t have we can quickly become a victim of circumstance.
1. Work Ethic
In this life, and in your business, we have hands we are dealt, and hands we can play. You always have choices - no matter how sticky. You have a choice to become a tiger and look the challenges in front of you in the face. Get angry, dig in, and pounce. Work hard, work smart, and if something is out of your depth - reach out (see point three).
Human beings have the powerful ability to create what we feel we deserve and what we want. Our pronounced desires may be different than the reality we create but the reason for this has to do with unspoken desires. Our minds can play powerful tricks on us, so it is important to work the “kinks” out of our inner dialogue as well as our outer dialogue. Speak what you want in your life as if it has already happened! Tell yourself what you are hoping for and make it a reality. I love to put reminders up… for example, I have a golden flying pig to remind me that I can help people make the impossible happen and I attract wealth! It really works. Get audacious, and make the impossible happen.
3. Support System
Sometimes, in order to move forward, you have to let go of the things in your past. You have to recreate your reality - and it can be hard to “unbreak” and “unlearn” the things you’ve been programmed to do.
Are you constantly trading work for work? STOP IT. Are you consistently undercutting yourself or putting your services on sale? STOP IT. Do you have a tendency to sound like Eeyore - negative, negative, negative? STOP THAT TOO. Find someone to mentor you, someone who has broken out of the patterns that are holding you back. Allow yourself to be playable and lean into the possibility of success and growth. If they make a suggestion, try it. GO FOR IT. What do you have to lose?
Whatever you are facing in your life, you can steer the ship, take the reins, and move beyond they muck and yuck and choose how to participate in your own life. You’re not a victim. Stop blaming other people, circumstances, and the things in your way and clear a path to victory. Enough is enough. Let’s build lives and businesses we are proud of together.
