Find a Way, or Make a Way – Thoughts for January 4, 2015

Was listening to an awesome training video last night by Ray Higdon and wanted to share with you what I took from it. The name of it is Daily Mindset and Training Call from the iPAS2 PRO training module.

It was not only changing my mindset into a positive one but it gave some great ideas on just a great way of living.

Started out talking about changing my language by no longer justifying negatives, such as “I am this way because of ______”. By justifying where I am (or just settling), then I will stay where I am. Or by telling it like it IS, it will always stay the same. I need to start talking and thinking about things the way that I want them to be, the way that THEY ARE GOING TO BE. I think my favorite quote from the training was:

 

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE FOCUS ON WHERE THEY ARE GOING

NON-SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE FOCUS ON THEIR OBSTACLES

 

That one statement had been so true in my life for the longest time, I came up with reason after reason to fail, or worse…TO NOT EVEN TRY.

Ray went on to talk about a lot of other great stuff, like using note cards or your cell phone to perform daily affirmations, and that just by changing my language, that I can begin to change my surroundings.

A perfect example happened this morning, I stopped to get gas and then went inside to get a soda. It was early on a Saturday so I was the only one in there. I got my drink and took it up to the counter to pay.

“GOOD MORNING!” I said as cheerfully as can be to the young lady behind the counter.

She looked at me questioningly as if no one should be allowed to be in a good mood at 7 AM on a Saturday and said “Well someone is in a good mood.”

“Is that so weird?” I asked

“Guess not, just that I work every Saturday morning here and it seems like there is NEVER anyone in a good mood that comes in.” She laughed as she said that. “Not sure why.”

I smiled at her and said, “Maybe you should be the one to put them in good moods. Smile at them as if there was nowhere else you would rather be and no one else that you would rather be talking to at that time.”

I guess this comment took her by surprise because she just looked at me for a minute as if there was something growing out of my head, and then she laughed and said “I might just have to try that.”

“Couldn’t hurt” I responded. She thanked me for coming and wished me a “Great Day” and I went on my way. I don’t know about her, but by me changing my language and attitude for those brief moments really made me feel right. You see, that would have been WAY out of my comfort zone a little while back, but it just amazes me how being positive towards people changes EVERYTHING.

For those of you that are already signed up in iPAS2, the training is available under the PRO plan tab in the training screen, I highly recommend you check it out

For those of you that are not signed up or that have no idea what iPAS2 is, click HERE and then sign up for the 7 day risk free trial. It can be a life changer if you let it, especially if you allow it to remove all of those obstacles that are holding you back from where your destination really should be.

Make it a Great Day
