Success or Failure: Perspective, Beliefs and Persistence

Success or Failure: Perspective, Beliefs and Persistence

Change your beliefs = change your results!

All failure begins this way:
People start out with high hopes about fulfilling their dreams, their life purpose, being successful, becoming balanced, happy and fulfilled, becoming wealthy,etc….., but when their perception of their circumstances suggests a lesser outcome is more likely (perhaps  an unexpected obstacle arises), their reaction becomes the initial seed of failure. This process destroys the dreams of countless people.  One of the myriad benefits of getting life purpose coaching or Money Mastery coaching is that the coach will help you to see the obstacles for what they are and hold you accountable to pursuing and fulfilling the dreams or intentions you initially brought to your coach.
Take a look at how this process works:
1. We all have two parts in our thinking: One is our dream or goal, and the second is the belief (conscious or subconscious limiting belief) that it might not ever happen. This is where most people start out.  This is like driving with the parking brake on- the parking brake makes it extremely difficult to move forward much less achieve acceleration or transformation.  It takes tremendous effort on the engine’s part, consumes a tremendous amount of fuel in order to move forward AND it’s highly stressful and will create damage.  In this analogy, we can all see that it makes no sense to operate a car this way.  Yet, many of us do attempt to operate our lives and our businesses this way and we wonder why we don’t succeed or why we can’t do everything needed to succeed.  We wonder why our spiritual, personal, and economic growth is slow or difficult.  So often it’s a case of looking at only half of the equation (the doing half) and forgetting the other half: WHO/HOW you have to BE to succeed.

2. Next, something begins to spark or inspire a person to take action on their dream, their life purpose, or their mission. Yet, not having a full understanding of the Laws of Success, they may not be aware of or receptive to the changes, the personal and spiritual growth required to realize their dream outcome.  Many individuals are not open to growth and change; this shows up as resistance.

3. Their subconscious may manifest an obstacle to keep them from experiencing anything “new” – a pre-requisite for moving forward.  This new challenge is perceived as a point of failure.
It is at this point in a person’s journey where moving forward becomes too painful or fearful, and a person usually chooses to stay “safe”, to remain in the realm of what they’ve known and are comfortable with.  This is known as one’s comfort zone. Being willing to move out of one’s comfort zone allows one to move forward, see the bigger win they are hoping for, and move into the growth and change necessary!
For any kind of change to occur, some sort of shift is necessary. Your beliefs control your perception of everything in your world, which in turn creates your reality. If you want to change your results, you must change your beliefs AND shift your perception. Until you shift your perception and your beliefs, you will continue to make choices that keep you where you are.  Without such a shift, you will likely feel defeated and give up on your dreams.
In theory, it’s really simple … but in practice, many people find it difficult because they really don’t understand all beliefs are nothing but illusions anyway. These illusions are so strong people think that they are real and they lack the knowledge, training or guidance to transform their beliefs.
The power of belief is astounding. I encourage you to study its mysteries for yourself and see what changes you truly do have the power to make.  Want some help?  I have powerful graceful tools to facilitate your transformation.  Contact me: kamila@MoneyMastery.us

Recession, Napoleon Hill, The Law of Attraction, and Your Dreams

Recession, Napoleon Hill, The Law of Attraction, and Your Dreams

Is there a recession? Depends on your criteria and your perspective. Regardless, people make their own circumstances (and success) regardless of the economy or other circumstances. You can allow yourself to be scared by the doom and gloom in the news (……it’s going to be a looooong time before the economy recovers”) or you can choose to persevere with your dreams, your goals, and your intentions. Here’s a story about perseverance, hope and faith:

This infamous story told by Napoleon Hill in “Think and Grow Rich” told of the exploits of the uncle of R.U. Darby who, in the 1800’s, was caught up in the “Gold Fever” produced by the mass hysteria and hype of the gold rush days.

Many people had “Gold Fever” or the burning desire to strike it rich in the vast producing western United States. Word spread world wide of the gold strikes and people from far and near rushed in to make their fortune. The uncle of R.U. Darby was no exception and in fact was one of the few who stuck gold on his initial dig. His initial find was proven to be one of the richest and purest gold veins in Colorado. His challenge though, was raising enough capital to fund a full scale mining process. He went back to the east coast to raise capital from friends, family and investors. Once this was done, he raced back to his mine and purchased the equipment for the task at hand.

He began drilling on endlessly yet, as if by some mysterious stroke of bad luck, the vein of gold had disapeared. Soon, worry, doubt and discouragement took hold and in fear of going broke, he sold his equipment to a junk dealer for a few hundred dollars. He quit… just gave up. He never knew that if the desire was present, so was the gold.

The junk man called a mining engineer and asked him his opinion on the whole project. The engineer went to the mine, examined the situation and told the junk man that if he drilled just 3 feet from where the other man had stopped, he would re-enter the previously tapped rich vein of gold.

The junk man extracted millions of dollars of gold from that mine because he was not afraid to ask for advice, seek counsel, and then act on that advice. Whether he understood the the law or just had an intuitive knowledge of it, the fact is the principle worked and it will always work.

Some of us are stopping 3 feet from our own gold mine and a sure way to prevent that is to stop listening to those doubts and worries that sing their song of gloom in your head. There’s a lot of negativity out there in the world today because people choose to believe what they hear and not what the law insists upon: if the desire was present, so was the gold. This is a universal law! If you have a dream, a desire, an intention, it cannot exist without the means for its fruition to also exist! If you are able to maintain the feelings of desire, the feelings of the fruition experience of that dream or desire, and take all appropriate actions to bring about the desired outcome, there is every reason for you to succeed. If a voice in your head or in your life says otherwise, you may choose to disregard it. You may need coaching, support, and practice to do this effectively. Start with a media fast; stop consuming media. Focus instead on how it will feel to realize your dream.

Food for Thought

Here are some quotes that inspire and remind me to be on purpose:

Between stimulus and response is our greatest power- the freedom to choose.

Stephen Covey

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re usually right.

Henry Ford

Because we are, by nature, proactive, if our lives are a function of conditioning and conditions, it is because we have, by conscious decision or by default, chosen to empower those things to control us.

Stephen Covey

Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.

Will Rogers

To freely bloom- that is my definition of success.

Gerry Spence

You can’t have the fruits without the roots.

It’s the principle of sequencing: Private Victory precedes Public Victory.

Self-Mastery and self-discipline are the foundation of good relationships with others.

Stephen Covey

Full effort is full victory

Stephen Covey

The more aware we are of our basic paradigms, maps, or assumptions, and the extent to which we have been influenced by our experience, the more we can take responsibility for those paradigms, examine them, test them against reality, listen to others and be open to their perceptions, thereby getting a larger picture and a far more objective view.

Stephen Covey

Between stimulus and response is our greatest power- the freedom to choose.

Stephen Covey

Because we are, by nature, proactive, if our lives are a function of conditioning and conditions, it is because we have, by conscious decision or by default, chosen to empower those things to control us.

Stephen Covey

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails.

Your attitude plays a critical role in success, fulfillment of your goals or dreams, etc… You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you as well as your response; in this way, you master change, growth and yourself.
