Correct Your Mindset and Expel The Fear
The main problem with many of us is we loose our direction in life. We have great aspirations upon leaving school or college but then just loose direction or do not know how to achieve our dreams. We are all taught the academic basics needed to function in today's world. We may then study further to achieve a qualification in a particular field. But we are never taught how to achieve real success. You need far more then just qualifications to make a success of your life. It's a fact that many people have left school with very few or no qualifications, but have still been very successful.
To be successful requires a certain mindset. It's not "what we do but the way that we do it", that counts. Two individuals from the same background with the same qualifications could start the same business. One could fail whilst the other could grow and expand into a multi-national business. So its not your education, it's not your background and it's definitely not luck, it's your mindset.
Look. Don't say to yourself, "oh that's all very well but you need money to make money", or "you need luck to succeed". You don't. With the correct mindset, focus and an understanding of how things work, you will create wealth and luck for yourself in abundance.
Have you ever wondered why you persist in an unsatisfying relationship, or why you are unwilling either to work towards a solution or to find an end and move on?
It is because you fear the unknown. The action you take changes things and will lead to the unknown. You believe that the unknown will be more painful then what you are already experiencing.
A very old proverb says. "The better the devil you know than the devil you don't" These beliefs keep you from taking actions that could change your life. If you want to change you life for the better, then you have to overcome your fears by overriding this preconditioned set of responses.
It is possible to link pain and fear to an unknown event. For example; you have never flown before and you are scared of flying in an airplane. You are frightened for no logical reason. You might have read about a plane, which crashed in the paper. And consequently believe your plane may crash. The truth is this fear a fear of the unknown. Before you can fear it you must experience it. You must make sure that you live your life in the present and respond to things, which are real. Do not allow your fears of what once was or what might someday be.
The key thing to remember is that you do not move away from real fear or pain, you move away from what you believe will lead to fear or pain.
Most people will never succeed because they cannot master the power of concentration, the power of the mind or the power of the universe. Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can command when we focus all of our resources on a single area of our lives. It is a fact that all people both men and women can make a success of their life and can achieve great riches in both monetary terms and ultimate happiness.
