How successful people think?
Can I be painfully honest with you for a moment?
Not the cute type of honesty, where I point a piece of broccoli stuck between your teeth. I am talking about the straight punch to the face kind of honesty.
You are DUMB!
I see you coming..
You’re telling yourself: “who does he think he is, to call me dumb?”
Honestly, I wasn’t dumb like you.
I was worse than that, really DULL-WITTED!
Until one day, something happened.
Through the never-ending grey days, my mind kept running toward the clouds.
Continuously catching speed, and the higher it climbed, the less oxygen was available. It kept going up, until finally getting breathless.
I woke up sweating, I couldn’t tell if it was a dream or a reality, I felt my throat so tight and I know, now, for sure, that I hated that feeling, so much that I made myself a promise; I will NEVER live through other people’s standards again.
This is MY LIFE!
I started researching, experimenting and looking for solutions, until it paid off. I got a 180° marvelous positive switch from the book My Philosophy For Successful Living by Jim Rohn.
Sharing the notion with you is meaningful to me, because you’ll look at life through a different pair of shades.
Thus, protecting your optic in a world where the UV rays are getting furthermore destructive.
The Shocking Truth About Yourself
“Success is something you attract by the person you become” – Jim Rohn.
To be successful, you need to be an attractive person.
What do you think about all day?
My friend, it’s what you attract to your life. Your thoughts materialize themselves through your everyday actions.
“Your income is directly affiliated to your philosophy and not by the economy” – Jim Rohn
Look at your mind as a factory. Each thought going through it as an ingredient.
At the end of the day, the quality of your product depends on the quality of the ingredients.
I truly believe that success is not only about money. I am only illustrating money as a measurable unit.
Let’s suppose you are paid $13 per hour as a customer service agent. Taking the exhausting everyday work in consideration, you think deserving more.
You might be right, but evil life has other plans. You’re market value depends on your knowledge.
Instead of crying about injustice, be more valuable. Don’t expect being paid $30 per hour if your knowledge doesn’t act in accordance.
If you bring 30 000$ a year for a company, why would they pay you a higher amount?
Whether you’re a salesman, a housekeeper, a businessman or a lawyer, you have a market worth.
Craving a promotion?
Instead of working hard at your job, work hard on yourself.
“Change yourself and change will come to your life.” Jim Rohn
Working hard on your job will earn you a living, working hard on yourself will earn you a fortune.
Seek knowledge by reading books, going to classes, attending seminars and by reading articles like this one.
Get out of your comfort zone and experiment. The skills and knowledge acquired will make you valuable beyond belief.
Highly successful people have the continuous thirst to learn, and if you don’t, someone else will!
This brings us to the next point.
Who do you want to become?
You read it right.
I said WHO, not WHAT.
I repeat, success is something you attract by the person you become.
Thus, finding your passion is instrumental, bringing harmonious melody to your life.
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.” -William W. Purkey
What do you research or read about for hours without getting tired?
Find your passion, and then find a way to make it useful.
Researching personal development for years, it took me time to realize I could make a living with it.
I found a way, and it’s starts here, with this blog!
I found a way to make it useful.
Nothing’s more gratifying than helping you seeing your true potential in an endlessly disconcerting world.
I am not being cheesy, but truly honest. You can FEEL it through my words.
Find something OBSESSESSIVE, an idea BURNING inside of you, setting your freaking hair on fire.
Don’t let your silly inner voice watering your idea down because NOBODY will be as devoted, and NO ONE will sacrifice himself to the cause like YOU WILL.
This is what it takes to be successful in a world of infinite uncertainty.
Now you understand why those who aren’t afraid to follow their passion are the ones ending up being successful.
Should You Quit Your Job?
If you don’t like it!
I understand, you have bills to pay, kids to feed and obligations to fulfill.
We all have obligations. Continue working on your living (Job) full-time, and on your passion (Fortune) part- time.
If you don’t have the time, then you are not devoted to start feeling alive.
You have other priorities.
You know why?
Because we find time for the things we truly want!
Perhaps, you won’t because you are SCARED! Be honest with yourself.
Buried down profoundly inside, we all have hidden fears, dreams, desires, and hatreds and occasionally, those emotions show up.
The only fear you should have in this life is fear itself.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.“ –Steve Jobs
Remember in the beginning, I told you that the lesson gave my life a 180° marvelous switch. Well, if you just read, and don’t implement, you’ll get a 360° switch.
Exactly, you got it! The 360° switch means you come back to your present soul-destroying life.
You are not that dumb after all! 🙂
Now you know how successful people think.
Take action, and defeat your endless grey days! It is your time to shine!
