Do you dream about success?
Do you want to do more than dreaming about it?
Well, then I think it is time for you to set your mind up for success … yeah, right, done that a thousand times already you may say/think … well, here we go … you are still in the negativity I say … haven’t run out of excuses yet… hahahahaha
Here are 4 statements and I want you to get through them and let them resonate with you … 😉 … because they are able to set you up for success … finally and ultimately.
#1 Don’t believe everything you think
Yes, you heard me right … just don’t … take a deep breath … and stop … breathe in again deeply … exhale slowly … and then ask yourself … who said that? … was that me saying I will never make it? I am not good enough? And, and, and … all those excuses why you won’t make it … even before you started??? … who’s voice is saying this? … you will find out 9 out of 10 times it is not your voice … who’s voice is it anyway? … and why believe them? … and even if it is your voice … is this really true? … well, I can tell you, you will never find out unless you get started … and prove them all wrong by succeeding … wouldn’t that be a great victory?
(Oh, and by the way … just in case you didn’t know yet … you are enough … always have been … always will be … breathe in deeply … breathe out slowly and say it again … I am enough … always have been … always will be … gooooooooood)
#2 Accept your flaws – they make up your uniquenss
Who wants to be perfect anyway … yes, of course, you should always look for how to improve yourself … absolutely … and to be better than you were yesterday … yes, but that is different from striving for perfection … and who says what is perfect anyway … do you know somebody who is perfect? Yes, ask them, they will probably laugh out loud and tell you “Me? You are kidding, right?” They can’t see it, because they know that there is no perfection … and even if it would be … life changes within the blink of an eye and it would be gone … just like that absolutely perfect VHS system by Grundig that lost to … oh, forget it … hahahaha
#3 Embrace failure
Why? Because there is no such thing as failure … failure does not exist … what you may consider as a failure indeed is feedback or the learning curve out of an experiment or of a great adventure (did you enjoy it? I hope so) … really, there are only two outcomes to a venture … success or learning … so take in what there is to learn and try again … you know what would be a failure? To not try again … to not stand up and carry on … does the toddler stop trying to stand or walk? “Oh no, I have fallen down again. This is too hard.I may as well stay down. Maybe I am not worthy to walk.” … NO … they don’t … they carry on … and one day they will walk … but only because they keep on trying … because these boots are made for walking baby … 😉
#4 Find insight in discomfort
This is one for me … we have a saying in German … if the donkey feels too comfortable he goes on the ice to dance … I looove donkeys … hahahaha … What do you do when you start feeling comfortable? Get the chips out? And how do you feel after that whole package of chips? … let’s be honest … I do this too … I feel horrible … but still they tasted good … I digress, I think … no, I don’t … hahahaha … when we get too comfortable we start with unhealthy habits … we get slow, we get self complacent, lazy … what we should do instead when we feel comfortable is we should enjoy our efforts and celebrate … yes, I am a big fan of celebrations … and then ask “What’s next?” (this is sooo me)… feel into yourself and ask what it is you would love to achieve next … I mean, you can do this from the comfort of your couch … but you always have the choice to leave it … stop dreaming and start doing … 😉
So what are you waiting for? Go and do it … because you can … 😉
If you keep on wiping out the negativity … if you keep on listening to your thoughts and words … and one by one eliminate those who work against your dreams and your success … then positivity will slowly take over … and so will success … the more positive your mindset is, the more positivity you will attract and the more success will find it’s way through your door … and then enjoy and celebrate again … maybe one day you will invite me to one of your parties … I am looking forward to it … 😉
Love, Sandra … 😉
