Like never before I see it’s now or never, but I want proof.
I finally get it. I see I’m at a crossroads in my life…like never before, it’s now or never. I know I need to live what I believe and not just talk, read or think about it. I have being going through huge ups and downs lately, especially relating to my business. Sometimes I feel so sure of myself, it’s like I taste success. Other times, I experience such enormous self-doubt and fear that I can hardly move forward (and staying still is just as painful, if not worse.) How can I move past this fear that paralyzes me? I need tangible proof that I can do this before I really go for it, and I’d really like you to share exactly what you do daily to get around the limiting beliefs and manifest success in your life and business.
You will not find your proof in other people. It comes from within. The limiting beliefs are yours (no one else’s) and you must get through them in your own way. That is NOT the same as doing it alone, let me be clear about that!
Resilience is the basic ingredient to success and happiness.
More than 5o years of scientific research demonstrates that the key to success at work and satisfaction in life is RESILIENCE. Where you fall on the ‘resilience curve’ (the statistical version of a continuum) affects your performance at school, at work, in your physical and mental health, and in your relationships.
Most of us think we’re resilience. We figure we can get through almost anything, and this is true…except very few actually deal with adversity well.
- Books on getting out of debt?
- How to stop emotional eating?
- Dealing with depression/anxiety/panic disorder?
- Getting out of codependent relationships?
- Forgiving alcoholic parents?
Notice anything about those types of books?
Success isn’t about perfection, it’s about consistency.
My perfectionism chokes the life out of me! I get so obsessed with having every detail perfect that I end up getting sick of the project and abandoning, wasting hundreds of hours of work, OR I end up doing nothing because I’m so afraid of getting it ‘wrong.’
Since I’m trying to start my own business, this is especially destructive. I get a great idea, and I follow the enthusiasm, only to get stuck on some ridiculous details. On the other side of things, when I DO manage to put something out there, if there is any kind of mistake (typo, or wrong stat) I feel so ashamed it stops me completely. OR, I put so much effort into something, I have high expectations for how it will be received by my customers, only to be disappointed when it launches and I hear crickets. How do I get past the fear of making mistakes? It is killing my life and smothering my business.
It’s exhausing to feel like the entire world is waiting for you to screw up! Guess what? They’re not.
Do you make happiness a priority? Or are you struggling to get by?
Most of us are so caught up in the stresses and distractions of just getting through the day, that we’re really not allowing ourselves time to simply bask in happiness. The truth is, that regardless of your situation – no matter how grim – there are actually WAYS to tap back into happiness…and it’s so important that you do so, particularly from a Law of Attraction point of view.
Bob wants to talk about my book, The Now of Happiness, resilience, success mindsets…and by the end of the call you’ll have all the information you need to be happy in a frustrating world!
There is no cost to attend. We simply ask that you register and we’ll send you the information you need to attend the call. We’ve set the call up to be ‘schedule friendly’ so if you can’t make it live, a recording will be made available later.
To me resilience is the key to happiness and success because it means persisting through failure.
Or you could say that resilience means persevering through CRAP.
Criticism (because you know there are people who LOVE to be ‘realistic’ out there.)
Rejection (don’t take it personally.)
A**holes (a cruder word for Dream-Stealers, gotta love those toxic people.)
Pressure (once you’re all in, you’ve got to play like you’re all in.)
