As a Man Thinketh…
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”. Joyce Meyer is fond of saying that where the mind goes, the man follows. Of course, it makes no difference whether you are a male or female, you are what you think you are. If you are struggling with your home business it is easy to become discouraged. If you have had a number of failures, constant thoughts of failure can surround you.
But, others have succeeded. Why have they succeeded when so many others have failed? Could the only reason they achieved success really be that they think differently? If you are just managing to get by and are serious about making a breakthrough in your lives, you cannot afford the luxury of having negative thoughts. There were plenty of negative people out there that you could listen to, but where is that going to get you?
Try listening to people who are positive both in your own life and also online. These are almost always the people who are achieving success. In the beginning when you start a home business or any other business for that matter, when things do not go as we expect, it is easy to feel like the biggest losers on the planet. If something positive doesn’t happen soon, something drastic would have to be done.
You cannot afford the luxury of a single negative thought. Start making good choices. Distance yourself from anyone who has anything negative to say about anything. Surround yourselves with positive, uplifting people who will pump positivity into your lives.
Start to believe that you have life changing success even before there are any real signs of it. This has sometimes been called the “fake it till you make it” concept. However, take care not to mislead people, particularly yourselves.
There is nothing wrong with having a positive attitude, but it is wrong to misrepresent your current financial situation. One of the most off-putting things often encountered is the tendency of some people to inflate their incomes. To some this is acceptable or appealing, but it is not.
If you lose your integrity, it can never be got back.
I have tried in this series of articles to make it clear that a home business is not likely to solve your financial problems overnight. If you think you have to lie to become successful you are wrong.
You can have success in a home business. It won’t be easy, however if you get guidance along the way from successful people you will have an extraordinary life.
I’ll say it once more:
“Get Out There and Get Stuck In!!”
