If you want to get the good stuff in life, you’ve got to put in the effort.
Despite all the marketing claims of various metaphysical products out there, you can’t use your imagination to conjure up a pile of cold coins.
You gotta do something if you wanna get something.
Now, if you’re doing something you love, and making some serious cash, you’ve got it pretty good.
Sure, you may be “working” a few hours a day, but if you truly love it, then you likely wouldn’t call it work.
Now, most people are nowhere near this life of luxury.
But why not?
What’s standing in the way of the life you’re living now, and the life you dream of?
Skills to be sure. It’s tough to be a rock star of you can’t read music or play an instrument.
One thing that’s more insidious than a lack of skill is lack of belief.
Why so insidious? Because for most of us, we don’t know they’re there.
They only show up in the results we get. And if you’re like folks, we tend to blame others, our circumstances, anything but ourselves.
But if you can find just a few of those beliefs, and get rid of them, it will be a lot easier.
How do you do this?
Describe the life you want. In as much detail as you can. Write that in a few short sentences at the top of a sheet of paper.
Then underneath it, write as many reasons as you can explaining why you don’t have the life right now.
Some may be based on lack of skills. Some may be based on lack of resources. Some may be based on lack of opportunities.
What you’re looking for are beliefs about yourself and your capabilities.
For example, if you wanted to be a concert pianist, you would ignore sentences like these:
I don’t have a piano.
I can’t play the piano.
What you’re looking for are sentences like this:
I can’t play in front of others.
I don’t have any musical skill.
Find as many of these beliefs as you can, and get busy getting rid of them. Once you do, everything else will fall into place.
