“The greatest thing about man is his ability to transcend himself, his ancestry, and his environment, to become what he dreams.” (Tully C. Knoles)
Think about it. What would you be doing if money was no problem? How would you spend your time if you could work and have fun at the same time–and of course make unlimited income? Sounds interesting? Want to hear more?
As a busines owner, here’s what I have found out…most Americans are “unconsciously comfortable” (UC). Yes that’s right….they are like robots..they just going along to get along….not using the talents that GOD has given them. What talents are you hiding?
As I travel, I find consistent trait with Americans over 30– they have stopped dreaming. Right. Americans do not have the “fire” in them anymore, as if someone has turned out the lights. Almost a sense of hopelessness. America what has happened? Is it the 2001 economy? Katrina? Or was it the fall of the 2007 economy? Or the wars? What has happened to us? Will we ever get back to those days when we were singing “O’Beautiful” or talked excitedly about the American Dream?
I have a few suggestions for getting Americans back excited again.
Step #1: Believe in yourself–and know that people are genuinely good. Don’t consider what the (bad) news is telling you. Turn off the television. Read books and listen to millionaire motivational speakers–because there are many. Some of my favorites are: The Holy Bible, Lisa Nichols, Les Brown, or George Fraser, Dennis Kimbro, Michael Roberts, Glinda Bridgeforth, Dr. Lois Frankel, Rev. T.D. Jakes, or Dr. Ida Greene, just to name a few. Feed your mind with positive thoughts & affirmations daily.
Step #2: Seek new information. The world is ever-changing. Don’t continue to use yesterday’s strategies hoping for tomorrow’s success. Be willing to have an open mind to new ideas and different ways of performing the tasks. Different doesn’t mean better, but it could increase your profits, the bottom line. Sometimes change can be good. Commit to attending seminars, workshops and webinars for updates. Consider new technologies for receiving information. Because information is moving at the speed of light, therefore, it’s not humanly possible for you to be present at each and every event, so embrace videos, You Tube, and conference call technology.
Step #3 Make a committment and take Action. So many books and tapes are sold….but how many people are willing to put into action the game plan? What are you waiting for? Who are you waiting for? The world cannot change until you take ACTION. You be the one who take the first step forward toward your dreams. What’s needed for you to move? Like Nike said…”just do it.” Like Art L. Williams said, “Just do it and do it and do it some more.” Yes it’s about you. The world is waiting on you. Do you. Are you ready for a change?
Step #4: Be Yourself. There is nothing in the world worse than a “fake” person. Everyone likes the “real thing.” Don’t emulate others and try to copy them…because you cannot fool us. Don’t have a “me to” mentality. You be the Picasso. Be the best YOU that the world will ever meet. Be unique. There is no one with your smile, your hair, your finger prints, your weight/height, no one but you. Embrace your uniqueness. God made you–focus on finding the hidden jewels within.
Step #5: Success is OK. It’s ok to feel good about making money and being successful. Daily affirmations can help you with changing your mindset if it’s negative about money and success. Here’s an example: “I affirm MY money will be used to good purpose. Today I start a new day, a new month, a new year and I am a new me. I accept that I am a success. I am successful in all I do, or will become. The more you give the more you get. I expect to receive money for I am worthy of it when I deliver excellent goods and services. I know prosperity is a state of mind, as you think you become.” (Dr. Ida Greene)
Thank God we live in a country of free enterprise. The only country in the world that refers to itself as “Land of Opportunity”.
Yes, we are blessed…..I’m excited!
So, tell me—are YOU ready……for a change?
