Keep Saying “YES!”
Louis Lautman shares his thoughts with you in the first of our guest series of inspirations, which we call our Entrepreneurial Stimulus Plan”
If you are reading this right now you are strengthening your competitive edge, not only in your business, but in life as well. We probably know countless people in our life who have started something only to give up when the times got tough. What would have happened if they persisted through in the face of challenge and adversity? We can’t control what other people do, but what you can control is what you do.
You Can BE, DO and HAVE Everything – you ever dreamed possible if you just continue to move toward the attainment of your dreams. Most people think it is an “Either/Or” world, I know that to be limited thinking and limited thinkers live limited lives. It is those who are unreasonable about what is possible who create greatness in their lives and impact the world in a major way.
Be Unreasonable – Have you ever noticed that the people who accomplish great things are the people who are taking actions aligned with accomplishing great things? Is that a mistake? NO They are doing what it takes because they are planning on accomplishing great things? What are you planning for? Are you settling mediocrity? You can no longer stand for the results you are getting to achieve the BIG dream results that you wish for.
Study The Past, But Don’t Live There – You must realize that you are not the first person to come up to hard times in your business or life. If you ask anyone successful or look throughout history, all conditions ebb and flow, but it is those who stick to it that ride the wave when it comes in. Learn how others have gotten through their tough times. We have heard that every cloud has a silver lining; the problem is that most people only see the cloud. What could the silver lining on your cloud be? If you knew you had a silver lining, what would you do differently?
The Time Is Now – Sometimes getting through a hard time takes a drastic new action that we have never tried before and fear taking that risk. Some people stay in that tough time because rather than doing something that may help them out…they do nothing. Doing nothing is the worst thing you can do in these situations, most of us know what we have to do, but getting ourselves to do it is the hardest part. Once we get ourselves out of the way, everything becomes easier until it is effortless. Ask yourself, is what I am doing right now, bringing me closer to my goals and if you answer anything but “YES,” do something right now that will bring you closer to living a dream life.
What Do YOU Think? As most people in hard times look out to others, they tend to look to the wrong people for advice. Seek the advice of those who have been in a similar place that you are in, these are the people who will give you the best advice because they have had similar experiences. as you hear all the negativity and naysayers telling you to give up, what matters the most is what you think is possible. Do you believe you can get through this? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Have you found a new strategy that you are implementing? Find those who support your dreams and when times are tough, let them route you on to get through to the next level.
All of our greatest lessons are wrapped up in problems and the bigger the problem, the bigger is the lesson that you will learn. While it may be difficult to deal with things when you are having challenges, we do grow stronger after having had them and will be better equipped in the future to deal with more situations. Roll out the red carpet and welcome new experiences in life, because I know if you are reading this…you are growing stronger and stronger every day.
