family-619570_1280.jpg

Most obstacles that confront us deal with fear, confusion, lack of knowledge, not enough money or negative self-talk. No matter what you do, obstacles will find you and attempt to block your success. It's important to understand that you have more authority over the situation than you think. Your thought process and how you react to the situation will enable you to be proactive versus reactive and achieve your goals in spite of. These 5 steps will serve as a reminder that when obstacles appear because they will, not only will you be prepared, you will persevere. 1. Rejection - this is a situation most of us have faced. It tends to hurt and make us feel incompetent in what it is we are trying to pursue. However, if you view rejection as a possibility of opportunity and a learning experience for growth, you will be less reluctant to allow rejection to hold you back.

2. Inadequacy - the feeling of not being as good as others can be a severe obstacle in achieving success. Understand that we all have different gifts and skills that make us unique and one of a kind. There is no need to compare yourself to others. Do what you know how to do and be willing to learn more. Strategically separate yourself from others and learn to competent in what you bring to the table.

3. Assumption - We assume that things are the same and typically we already have it figured out how it will end. Therefore you change nothing but expect different results. This is the definition of insanity with a super sense of hyper exaggeration. Be willing to get help and seek a new perspective.

4. Perfection - Many struggle with it everyday and it is a true reality. In fact, it is the life support of many failed dreams. As long as you seek things to be perfect, you will never get anything accomplished. Instead of perfection, strive for progress and determination. You will find that your results become focused and your ability to complete a task becomes real.

5. Security - Most people rely on the security of one thing or another in order to get them through. Security is something that is not assured. Therefore, instead of growing dependent, become independent in yourself and your skills. Nothing is guaranteed but life and death. Find strategies and solutions that will allow you to not only survive but thrive when things seem bleak.

The Traits of a Successful Mindset

"I truly believe in positive synergy, that your positive mindset gives you a more hopeful outlook, and belief that you can do something great means you will do something great."  Russell Wilson

 

In order to achieve success in business, relationships and life, you will need to have the right mindset.

Success is something that everyone wants to achieve, but many don’t put in the work. The simple process of achieving success involves you starting, focusing, showing up, committing and making it happen.

Most people simply do not know how powerful their minds are and how it can be the determining factor behind them attaining the success they desire.

“Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making thesame one a second time.” – George Bernard Shaw

A lot of people have failed simply because their minds were never in the right place. A lack of success could be a lack of incorporating these 5 principles in your life.

Determination

A true fact is that successful people are simply more determined than those who are not. This is a trait that is seen in every person that is successful in their given field. Their desire to be better than they were yesterday and the perception that it is their responsibility to attain the success that they envision.

Relaxed Despite Adversity

If you are a business owner, you have most likely dealt with a lot of problems. The way that you deal with this adversity will shape who you are as a person and as a business person. It is evident through their resilience of struggle. Successful people don’t complain and if they do, they come at it with a plan.

If you are able to stay relaxed despite adversity, you will be able to become more successful in your endeavors.

Knowledge

Successful people are simply smarter. This is not just speaking about grades in school, but in life in general. Their knowledge with everyday things and common sense is very important and you will need to understand just how important it is to have a lot of knowledge and be willing to acquire it. Successful people know what they can and can’t do.  For those things they can’t do, successful people are smart enough to hire someone who can do it. It is how they think and how they are wired to be successful.

Invest

Successful people are not afraid to invest in themselves. Whether it is for training, practicing or something that will help with their success, successful people will simply invest in their success on a regular basis. They realize that they are their greatest wealth. Successful people acknowledge that investing in themselves is the only way they will achieve their desired goals and objectives. By investing in themselves and others, successful people find another way to be successful on a regular basis.

No fear of failure

Failure is an obstacle for many. But not for successful people. If you have no fear of failure, then you will be motivated to see success clearer. Once you are able to rid your mind from the fear of failure, you will be redirect your actions towards achieving success. Successful people live life with risk and are not afraid to make a mistake. They can also care less what others say about what they do. Fear is their friend because the more they are afraid to do it, the more they are ready to do it at the drop of a hat. It is their fuel and their energy to fear what’s next. The unknown has no existence in their plan.

“Action is the foundational key to all success.” – Pablo Picasso

I can go on and on. The truth about successful people is that they are the CEO’s, the owners, the movers and the shakers of the economy, the school system and the community. They are the ones you want in your life and in your corner. Successful people make the impossible seem so possible. They are prepared to make a difference where there has always been a constant. Change is a part of their vocabulary. Successful people are action takers and problem solvers.

These are just some of the traits that successful people have and you too can have them as well.  Your decision to step out of the box and do what you desire is a decision between you and success. Just as long as you are patient and you try to incorporate these traits into your life on a daily basis, you, YES YOU, will be able to succeed in any aspect of your life.

Live in the Purpose of your Prosperity and Abundance

prosperity12

Prosperity is right. Amen. We prosper to prosper others. We prosper to prosper God's kingdom, so come believing. Joseph Prince

Knowing how to attract prosperity can be a challenging aspect. Having the insight and the ability to "know" you're prosperous - even when you don't yet feel like you are can.

When your outer circumstances keep reflecting the illusion of lack or no progression, it's easy to get frustrated because you think your attraction attempts aren't working. However, that very frustration is what will keep you locked into the cycle of lack!

In order to break out of the illusion of lack, you have to use the power of your intuitive perspective to diminish the energy you have invested in it previously. How do you invest energy into the creation of lack? When you consistently dwell on what's not, you will eventually fall into that mindset. In retrospect, there are many ways that may not come to mind that you never think of.

- By constantly thinking about it and focusing on it.

- By constantly affirming that it exists in your life. Be affirmative in your desires and not on your current situation.

-By complaining about it to others, you will eventually learn that people really don't care about your problems and no one wants to be around a complainer. Negative people are draining and purpose destroying.

- By identifying with the lack you see in the world around you, you can connect with needs that you can possibly fulfill. Lack is everywhere and to focus on it makes it more prevalent than it may actually be.

The more energy and attention you give to the existence of lack, the more lack you attract back to yourself. Focus and concentrate on the good.

The good news is that you can also use this same process to attract prosperity and abundance into your life instead of focusing in on the far end of the spectrum!

- Constantly think about and focus on prosperity and abundance. However, be certain to NOT from a place of need, fear or anxiety - but from a sovereign place of joy, confidence and optimism that it is already yours. The mind achieves what it believes and its focus become its direction.

- Make it a daily practice to constantly affirm that you are a natural prosperity magnet and great abundance flows into your life easily and frequently.

- Don't be shy or selfish. Share the wonderful things that happen to you with others. Rather than complaining about the bad stuff, share the good stuff and encourage the people in your life to do the same. It's about attraction!

- Pay close attention to the great abundance that surrounds you at all times. In essence, you don't have to look too far. Most often we miss it and it stares us in the face. This includes the material possessions, people and blessings you currently have in your life, but also the expressions of abundance you encounter while out in the world. Yes... it does exist! Rather than feeling envious of rich and successful people, imagine that the universe has just held up a mirror to let you know that YOU can also be just as rich and successful.

Most importantly, develop the inner "knowing" that you can CHOOSE abundance and prosperity, just as easily as you chose lack and struggle.

You may not believe that you've chosen lack and struggle (who in their right minds would?) - but it's very possible to choose by innocent default. Unless you consciously choose to be prosperous, it's like sitting in the back seat of your car and expecting it to deliver you to your desired destination which will eventually get you no where. Take action and choose to live differently.

Try reciting this affirmation several times a day:

"I KNOW I am a powerful creator in my own right and I CHOOSE the harmonious flow of prosperity and abundance to flow NOW."

When you first start saying it, you'll probably feel like you're lying. That's because deep down inside, you really don't "know" it can happen for you. But keep at it. Keep saying the affirmation with strength and power and conviction in your voice, and you really will start to believe it.

And that's when everything in your outer circumstances will begin to shift toward the prosperity and abundance you "know" you deserve and yes... entitled to receive.
