Impact Your World
How to ace your life, and find what’s really stopping you.
We all want more. That’s human nature. We’ve all heard at one time or another to dream big, you can have everything. Yet there are still a lot of people blaming external situations, people, and the economic climate for their lack of abundance.
But the truth is none of the external factors are really to blame. Not everyone goes after their dreams or chooses to hold them as a realistic possibility. So what separates those who have what they want from those who don’t? What separates those who talk about what’s wrong from those who constantly affirm and are grateful for what’s present? What really prevents us from having all that we want, is ultimately ourselves. It’s our emotional internal climate we hold ourselves to. Do you let your mind wander, or do you stay focused? Are you more grateful or more pessimistic? A lack of an empowering belief, a lack of vision and a lack of daily disciplines are all responsible when we strike out. If you’re not heading in the direction you want, take a look at your internal thoughts and beliefs.
The standard of communication we set for ourselves is a direct reflection of our success. What do I mean by that? Our internal self-talk and love we express for ourselves is key to making our dreams come true. It’s the difference from going after what you want and having the daily discipline to check-in and allowing yourself to live in the complaint zone where you think it’s as good as it gets. Do you want to be one of those people that just lets weeks pass you by while you’re stressed out and waiting to chill out and recharge over the weekend? What are you willing to accept in your life?
The words you use everyday have an impact on the life you are creating. It can be that simple. I want you to ace your life and have all that you want…and I know that is possible. Our conscious and unconscious minds are meant to communicate. But the negative “self-talk” and internal thoughts can be a major block. It affects the way we feel, the friends and peer group we keep and the direction we head. If you picture the athletes in the U.S. Open or the Olympics imagine the way they might handle a situation. See the conscious mind as the goal-setter. But your unconscious—that’s the goal-getter, and it can only go after goals that are clear, specific and in line with what you really want. So when we speak or think in a way that’s confusing, that’s a communication challenge.
So let go, focus on your internal communication and score some aces.
