I’m in ❤ with this man, Mike Dooley. (His wife has nothing to worry about.)
I was lucky enough to spend 3 days with him at Omega Institute this past weekend. And because it was so goooooooood, I’m inspired to share a few of my favorite nuggets with you from my #SundayCEO this week.
Get ready for some old fashioned woo woo!!!
1. Thoughts become things.
If you’re thinking positively, that’s what you’re gonna get. And the same is true if you’re thinking negatively. Watch what you say and think!
2. Because things do not become thoughts, dream “generally.”
In other words, dreaming about the book you’ll write (or Porsche you’ll buy) ain’t gonna get you happiness. Instead, it saddles you because you’ve linked your whole life with this book taking off. Instead, think about what writing the book will get you.
THAT’S the feeling that you REALLY want to dream about. Because maybe it’s a talk show that’ll get you the feeling. Or a world speaking tour. Or a role in a movie. And aren’t they all equally cool?
Trying to dictate HOW you’ll get that feeling by saying it’s “the book” closes off possibilities.
3. You rock BECAUSE of your challenges and problems.
Challenges make you rise to the next level. If it feels like things aren’t working, it means you’re ready for a bigger game.
Which is why…
4. Taking action breeds clarity.
Knock on more doors. Look for more paths. More options. More ideas. If what you’re doing isn’t working, toss in another option for fun. My friend, Tina Forsyth and I love doing “experiments” because it takes off the pressure!
That means you need to get out. Get out. Get out. Even if it’s just going to the mall to people watch. You’re more likely to get what you want (aka “manifest”) when you get out of the house and / or office.
5. Only in hindsight are the miracles obvious.
Just because you don’t see them in real time doesn’t mean they’re not happening… because they are.
You may have heard my “sobbing-in-my-living- room-because-I-went-in-the-hole-trying-to-build-my-business” story. I thought I would never figure out how to make REAL money in this business.
Then almost magically, all my so-called crappy experiences melded with my positive experiences and I created this cool thing called Evolve Accelerator.
Not only has it positively changed my clients lives and their businesses, it’s changed mine. I can hardly believe I’m starting my 18th Evolve group next month!
And that’s just one of many examples of the miracles being evident in hindsight, but not in real time.
*** ASK YOURSELF ***
Am I taking action – or giving up?
Am I getting out of the house -or waiting for success to come to me?
Are my thoughts about what I (generally) want – or about what I (specifically) don’t have or am afraid of?
*** *** *** *** ***
You are amazing. And mindset is half the battle. Well, it’s more like 99% of the battle.
Wishing you your most fantastic week ever!
