Change your thoughts - change your world.

Change your thoughts and you'll change your world.

I Will

There is a small book called, "That Something" which contains a powerful story of rags to riches, and the power behind this change. It is a very short read and well worth it, see below link. But ultimately, it is a story of mindset. We all get to choose our own path, which can be a path of being acted upon or a path of action. To be acted upon, means that we are a byproduct of our circumstances, and we lack the ability to change or influence the direction of our path, it is just what it is. The path of action, means that our circumstances are a byproduct of our mindset and actions, and we control the direction at all times. 

The reality is that there is actually only one path and that is the path of action, but we determine the direction of the path, up or down based on our actions or lack thereof. So, people create their own path down due to their inactivity and negativity or their action and positivity. 

We need to always have the mindset of "I believe" and "I will." As we do this consistently we will start to see our circumstances starting to bend and be shaped by our new mindset.

Failure - Start again more intelligently

Failure is never easy. We can choose to let it make the best of us and quit or we can rise above it and use it as a tool to improve. Failure is one of the building blocks to success.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. Henry Ford

Be responsible for the energy you bring

I can't stress this enough. Ultimately, we are responsible for the energy we bring into any situation. If we are not happy with any given situation, then change your energy and your attitude and you will be happier and those around you will be happier. 

"Be responsible for the energy you bring into this space." Jill Bolte Taylor

Take massive action

When we take massive action, we defy the definition of insanity and do something different therefore we have different and better results. 

“The path to success is to take massive, determined action.”
— Tony Robbins

And that is why I succeed

This is spot on. We get good through practice and more practice. No one is perfect in the beginning and we can't expect that from ourselves either. Let's get excited to miss the basket over and over again, because that gets us closer to a basket and we learn something every time we shoot that refines and polishes us. 

"I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." Michael Jordon
