Be Careful What You Ask For Because You Are Going to Get it

The Disaster of Negative Thinking

The greatest scientists in the world are just beginning to scratch the surface when it comes to understanding what our minds are really capable of.  The mind is so unbelievably powerful in ways we could never imagine.  You and I don’t need to understand exactly how it works, we just need to take care of our minds and let the magic happen.  Our subconscious mind takes orders from our conscious mind.  The subconscious mind doesn’t ask questions, it doesn’t differentiate between empowering thoughts and demoralizing thoughts.  It just acts upon the thoughts that we think.  All outcomes and experiences in our lives are a direct result of our dominant mental thoughts.  What we think, we become because our subconscious minds translate into reality our thought impulses.  When we ask ourselves a demoralizing question like “Why does this always happen to me?” our subconscious minds go to work whether we realize it or not.  How do you think it responds to a demoralizing question like that?   You are brilliant, it answers it with a bunch of demoralizing answers.  Its just like the computer you are reading.  A computer’s output is based on its input.  When a computer hacker tries to commit a cyber crime or steal someone’s identity, the computer doesn’t say it can’t do that because that’s illegal.  It just performs what its user instructed it to do whether its legal or illegal.  Our subconscious minds act the same exact way a computer does.  Its output is based on its input whether its a positive input or a negative input.  Its not rocket science, if you want to change your output, you must change its input.  The quality of your life is going to depend on the quality of your thoughts.   The more empowering questions you ask your subconscious mind, the more empowered you will be.  You must understand that the dominate thoughts of your mind will eventually manifest into the real world.  Buddha said, “We are shaped by our thoughts.  We become what we think.  All that we are arises with our thoughts.  With our thoughts, we make the world.  The next time you want to let a negative thought or a demoralizing question enter your precious mind, be careful what you ask for because you are eventually going to get it.

Use incredible thoughts to manifest an incredible life.  Your life will follow your thoughts.  If you think it and believe it, your subconscious mind will make you achieve it.  Take your passion and make it happen.

Don’t go to The Dark Side

If you knew how powerful negative thoughts really were, I seriously doubt that you would dare let negative thoughts enter your precious mind. One of my idol’s Napoleon Hill, used to say negative thinking was as bad as working in the devil’s workshop. This video blog is about the time when I was around one of the most negative attitudes ever. Let me know what you think in the comments section. Go mind power.

Need a Hero? 5 Steps to Solving Any Problem

Since the beginning of time, trials and tribulations have been a major part of our daily lives. Humans have found themselves in all kinds of challenging situations where their actions determined their outcomes. People have demonstrated an amazing ability to take an almost certain catastrophe and turn it into a successful triumph. How we deal with these challenging situations where there’s so much on the line will have a great impact on the quality of our lives. Martin Luther King said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Houston, We Have a Problem

Here’s the situation, you are dealing with a major crisis that appears to be getting worse by the minute. Anything that could’ve gone wrong, already has. Nothing is going as expected and it seems like things are just getting worse by the minute. Even though you thought you prepared for everything, You are rattled beyond your wildest expectations because no one could’ve imagined this unbelievable crisis. What do you do? How do you act? Do you just cry and complain as you watch your demise? Or do you give it everything you have as you try to pull off the impossible?

Here is What You Don’t do

Most people will just sit around and sabotage their chances by focusing on all the negatives. Focusing your attention on the negatives during any challenging situation will only magnify your problem. Why would anyone in their right mind want to create an atmosphere that makes their situation more difficult than it already is? The last thing you want to do during a challenging situation is to defeat yourself before you even get started.

Now is The Time to

We are all created equal, what sets us apart is our hearts and minds. That might seem like a little difference, but that little difference, makes a huge difference in this game called life. I don’t care who you are or what your situation is, as long as you give yourself a chance, there will always be a chance. Follow this time tested secret to solving any situation. Time for some Action.

5 Steps To Solve Any Situation

1. Start off by getting excited about your opportunity to provide a solution. Your attitude is everything. Believe without a doubt that you can find the solution. Stay cool, calm, and collected because your attitude towards the situation is critical to your success. Having the best attitude will always put you in the best state of mind which is very important when it comes to being a master of solutions. Remember to always believe in your abilities to find the solution. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks you can or can’t do. It only matters what you believe you can do. A believer will always be an achiever.

2. Now is not the time to play the blame game. Forget about what you could have done, there’s no time for that. It’s all about what you are going to do now. No one can change the past, but we all can change our futures. It is very important that you get the highest and best use of your time when it comes to finding solutions. Its critical not to waste a precious second on things that you can’t do anything about, like the past. Too many people will waste too much time blaming and complaining that they often leave themselves with little time or chance to find a solution.

3. Analyzing the situation should only take up about 5% of your time. This is what I like to call situation analysis. Find out exactly what the problem is. This step is crucial to your success because if you don’t know exactly what the problem is, there’s no way to find a solution. Discover the problem! Find the need, fill the gap.

4. Spend 95% of your time seeking the solution. This is your time to shine so step up and find the solution. Don’t be afraid to take a risk, because the greatest risk is the one that you don’t take. Stay flexible in your approach. Keep trying different approaches until you succeed. Many people have achieved the unthinkable during chaotic times. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do the same.

5. Learn from the situation and move on. Don’t keep making the same mistakes. It is imperative that you use every experience in life to make you a better person. “Win or Learn, there is no failure,” Henry Ford.”

Whether you believe its possible or whether you believe its impossible. You are right. Take your passion and make it happen.

Candy Goals Are Good For You

Goals are like candy.

To say I loved candy would be a gross misrepresentation of the facts. I have eaten enough candy for about 6 lifetimes. Sometimes I would over fill my mouth with so many pieces so I could get an overload of that candy taste. I am sure that obsession to candy helped me get into the worst shape of my life. I had another obsession I want to tell you about. That obsession was achieving goals. I couldn’t get enough of that amazing feeling that follows triumph and victory. If I set my mind to doing something, you could consider it done because I was not going to rest, until I pulled it off.

Settle, FOR WHAT?

I kept pushing myself to achieve more and more because the high from achieving my desired goal would only last so long. I couldn’t get enough. Like an addict, I needed to get more of my fix. This obsession was a good thing because it always pushed me to seek new challenges. At times I didn’t even possess the skills or the knowledge required to achieve my desired goals. I didn’t let that stop me. I knew that for years, people had been stretching their abilities to achieve results beyond their current capabilities. If they could do it, I knew I could do it.

Candy Goals

My obsession to goals was very similar to my obsession to candy. I had my favorite kind of candy, but that didn’t keep me from eating the different kinds. Just like there is all kinds of candy, there’s all kinds of goals. Here is a brief list of the different kinds of goals you can accomplish.

Daily Goals             Career Goals

Monthly Goals        Relationship Goals

6 Month Goals        Personal Goals

Yearly Goals           Parenting Goals

Lifetime Goals        Health Goals

5 Year Goals          Financial Goals

10 Year Goals        Social Goals

20 Year Goals        Traveling Goals

The reason I wanted to point out to you the various types of goals is to remind you that there are countless opportunities for you to improve your life on a daily basis. You must commit your life to constant and never ending improvement in every aspect of your life. Even small daily gains lead to drastic improvements over time. Whether its a small goal or a big goal you accomplish, the fact that you are achieving your goals will only cultivate you more success because you will be creating goal momentum in your life. Success brings more success. When I knock out one goal, I look for the next one and then its on to the next one.

Your Turn to Become The Candy Goal Monster

If you don’t have goals in your life, you don’t have a clear path. Without a clear path, who knows where you will end up. If you want to go through your life without a clear destination, go right ahead and take yourself to no man’s land. If you want to go to the promise land of Abundance Mountain, you need to know what your destination is, and you need a sound strategy on how you plan on getting there. Reset your mind of any negative thoughts or limiting beliefs that you may have. Focus your thoughts on the results that you desire and chase it with the fierce URGENCY OF NOW. Make a concrete commitment that you will do whatever it takes until you get there. Make sure you use any failure you experience as a stepping stone and not a stumbling block. Don’t ever listen to what a spirit sniper or a dream stealer says you can’t do. It only matters what you believe you can do.

Now is the time for you to become a goal slayer. Act like you are the CANDY GOAL MONSTER. You need to munch on goals like I used to munch on candy. You need to make winning your obsession.

Just remember, just like you climb Mount Everest one step at a time, you eat a giant candy goal one bite at a time. You can achieve anything you believe with power and control over your thoughts and actions. Take your passion and make it happen.

Tough Questions Suck, But You Have to Ask Them

Many people will fail to reach their full potential because they are afraid to ask themselves the tough questions. Tough questions usually have tough answers that we really don’t like to hear. Are you afraid of the answers to your tough questions? Is that why you are not asking them of yourself? Don’t drown in the river of denial. Don’t postpone asking yourself those difficult questions any longer. You know what you’re not happy about. You know where you are in your life today. It doesn’t matter how you got here, you are here. You can’t afford to dwell in the past because you can’t change it. What matters the most is the decision you make today. What matters the most is the action you take moving forward.

Sitting on your butt got you here today. Are you going to sit back and expect to change by continuing to sit on your butt? I don’t think so. Benjamin Franklin said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You are not insane. Stop acting like it. If you keep doing what you’ve been doing you are going to keep getting what you’ve been getting except it only gets worse. Don’t be your own worst enemy. Don’t sabotage the quality of your life by failing to reach your full potential. No one is going to help you. You must help yourself. You have to want it in your life. You have to accept the fact that something must change. You must be the catalyst of that change. Don’t succumb to the tranquilizing drug of procrastination. Get off your ass and take some massive action because time isn’t on your side.

Make a promise to live better. Make a commitment to give yourself a better quality of life. Decide right now to take control of your destiny. Get going on the best days of your life. The decision you make today can shape your future like nothing else can. Empower yourself today. Elevate your life to the next level and don’t stop climbing. The promise land of success and happiness has a view that makes utopia look like a garbage landfill.

Don’t play games with your life, because life is not a game. Its a journey. We get to determine our destination. Are you going to the dark and desolate desert of despair? Or are you going to the empowering mountaintop of the extraordinary life? Take the first step now. Take control of your life today. The greatest day of your life will be the one on which you decided to take total control of your life. The day you stopped making excuses on why you couldn’t. The day you decided to make yourself accountable for your own actions. On that day, you will experience a freedom that’s just exhilarating. That will be the day where your life truly begins. That will be the day that shapes your destiny. You are the navigator of your life. Take yourself to the top of promise land mountain. The view is mesmerizing. Make the rest of your life, the best of your life. Take massive action now.

What’s at Stake? Everything

What’s at Stake

Thomas Edison claimed to have failed over 10,000 times while trying to invent electricity. How was he able to stay so committed to achieving his desired goal after failing so much? Thomas Edison knew what was at stake. He knew that his legacy as one of the greatest inventors of all time depended on him inventing electricity.

Thomas Edison said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward.” He believed that every failure he experienced was only getting him closer to finding the solution to his problem. How many people would’ve quit when facing the same adversity as he faced?

It is almost impossible to achieve something extraordinary without experiencing some kind of setback or temporary defeat. One of my idols Napoleon Hill said, “No man ever achieved worthwhile success who did not, at one time or another, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure. One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat.”

I can’t tell you how many times I have found myself on the brink of failure, only to succeed? It is one of life’s most rewarding feelings to know that you’ve succeeded when you were so close to failing. Have you found yourself in that position before? What kept you from throwing in the towel? I guarantee that you had too much to lose to quit.

Fear of Loss Or Hope For Gain?

When you set out to achieve something extraordinary, you must consider what’s at stake for you. What have you got to lose if you don’t make it? What do you have to gain when you achieve your desired goal? The more reasons why you have to achieve your desired goal, the more motivation and determination you will have to achieve your desired goal. The more reasons why you have behind your cause, the more committed you will stay when things don’t go your way.

Trust me, there will come a time when you are cruising down easy street on your way to achieving your goal and something is going to knock you so hard on your ass that you might not even know what hit you. When you are facing that painful feeling of failure, your judgement is not where it needs to be. That’s when that devilish little voice in your head is going to try to persuade you to quit. Lets face it, quitting is usually the easy thing to do. Everyone is doing it, its okay if you quit, right? Wrong, I’ve quit before and it sucks. There are still skeletons in my closet from throwing in the towel when I should’ve soldiered on. I can’t take that back, and neither can you. Do you have some quitting skeletons in your closet? We can’t change the past but we are in total control of our future. Its entirely up to us to make sure we never make the same mistake again. The best way to do that is to totally understand what’s at stake. Understand what you have to lose. Understand what you have to gain. Understand that you can achieve anything you believe.

Next Time I Will Persevere

The next time you find yourself on the brink of failure, its okay. Failure is a part of the journey. Failure is a chance to begin again more intelligently. Failure is just an outcome, that’s all it is, its just an outcome. Take a deep breath and focus on all the reasons why you have to keep on keeping on. Focus on everything you have to gain. Focus on everything you have to lose. The more reasons you have, the more empowered you will be. Anyone can quit when the going gets tough. It takes a real winner to persevere in the face of adversity. If I can do it, then so can you. Winners never quit and quitters never win.

6 Steps to Winning More Than You Lose

The Critical Competitive Edge That’s Needed to Consistently Win.

Whether you’ve been a winner your entire life or whether you’ve been defeated more than you’ve won, the following steps will drastically increase your chances to win way more than you lose.

1. Believe without a doubt in your abilities to achieve your desired goal – Eliminate “I can’t” and “impossible” from your vocabulary. We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible. It can’t be a hope or a wish of yours. It must be a concrete belief of yours that you are going to win. You can achieve anything you believe.

2. Master the fundamentals – Whatever you do in life, make sure you master the fundamentals skills that are required to be the best in your particular field. So many people will fail to master the technical basics because they are too busy trying to be fancy. Fundamentals will always beat the fancy if they are performed at the highest levels. The only path to peak performance is through practice and preparation. Practice makes perfect. Practice more than the best, so you can beat the best. Mastering the fundamental skill sets in your field will give you a competitive edge over your competition.

3. Focus on the prize – Never lose focus of what your desired goal is. Focused people are difficult to stop because making their dreams come true becomes their healthy obsession . When you make it your obsession, you will discover what you have to do to make your dreams come true. Focus on the necessary actions you will have to take daily to achieve your desired goals. Think it, Believe it, and then you will See it.

4. Making Adjustments – Failing goes hand in hand with making your dreams come true. The key is to learn how to use your failures as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks. If you fail, keep changing your approach until you get the results that you desire. Constantly adjust to the conditions as they evolve. If something isn’t working, stay flexible in your approach until you succeed. Adapt your plan until you get the results that you desire. Remember, winners never quit and quitters never win.

5. Your mind is your greatest tool when it comes to achieving – Use your mind as a powerful tool. Focus on empowering thoughts that will empower you to take the necessary actions to make your dreams come true. Always stay positive no matter what. Any negative thinking will sabotage your success. We are what we think. The quality of your life will depend on the quality of your thoughts. Your thoughts should always be focused on what you have to do to make your dreams come true.

6. Unleash an unstoppable desire to win – You must take your burning desire to the nuclear hot level if you want to make your dreams come true. Your success is go to depend on how bad you want it. The more you want it, the quicker you are going to get it. If you want to consistently win, then you have to want it more than whoever you are competing against. Look deep within you for that unstoppable desire to win. The unstoppable desire to win is already in everyone, but it only works if you are wiling to unleash it.

I Believe in Creating Your Own Luck

The only luck I believe in is the luck that I create for myself. I create this luck by seizing all the opportunities that come my way. I’m able to consistently capitalize on these opportunities because of my preparation. Winning is all about practice and preparation. If you want to win more than you lose you better practice and prepare better than anyone you are competing against. Practice is where champions are made. Preparation gets you ready for anything that may come your way. Life will give you whatever you give it. If you want to win, you better be willing to give it everything you have and then some. If you don’t, I can assure you there are countless people who will and you will always wonder what its like to be them. You don’t want to be like them, you want to beat them. Napoleon Hill said, “The only “break” anyone can afford to rely upon is a self-made “break”.”

Three Types of People in This World

There are three types of people in this world. There’s the people who don’t care about making things happen. Then there’s the people who consistently make things happen. Then there’s those who criticize and envy those people who make things happen. Which one of these are you?

Don’t get the wrong idea about these individuals who don’t care about making things happen. They can’t make things happen because they are too busy working their tales off trying to make the impossible happen. I mean come on, do you really know how hard it is to focus your undivided attention on a wall clock for eight hours straight as you try to make time fly? I don’t care how long I look at the clock, I still can’t make time fly. Going to work for these people is like going to jail because they are only trying to do their time so they can leave. They don’t care what happens to their employer’s business. They don’t care that they are “Customer No Service Specialist”. The reality is that these people have convinced themselves that they will never amount to much. Their perception has become their reality.

Then there’s those who criticize and envy those achievers who make things happen. These people sit around and focus their thoughts on how life’s not fair. They give excuse after excuse on why they can’t do this or why they can’t achieve that. These people are the CEO’s of their field. You know, CHIEF EXCUSE OFFICER. Their specialty is CRITICIZING, CONDEMNING, and COMPLAINING about everything and everyone. These people are so busy hating and criticizing others that they don’t have enough time in their day to do anything else. How could anyone expect to achieve anything if all they do is worry about other people’s business? Ladies and gentleman, life is difficult enough as it is. You can’t afford to waste your precious thoughts and your precious time worrying about other people. These people just need to zip their lips and worry about their own lives. Don’t these people know that criticism is just a disguised compliment? Don’t they realize that being jealous and hating others is bad for your health? If you know anyone like this, make sure you avoid them like they are dripping with the swine flu. Remember you are only as good as the company that you keep.

Finally we get to talk about those individuals who consistently make things happen. What’s so special about these achievers? No, they weren’t raised on a four leaf clover farm. No, their parents didn’t feed them Frosted Lucky Charms as a baby. What separates these achievers from the rest of the world is their indomitable will to succeed. These people believed that they were capable of achieving much more than what they had previously achieved. These winners couldn’t handle being ordinary because their obsession in life was to achieve the extraordinary. These achievers believed that success was their only option and they refused to quit until they experienced the success that they desired. These people didn’t fear failure. They only feared not giving it their absolute best.

Look deep inside your soul. Have you really lived up to your true potential? Have you really given your life the effort required to make your dreams come true? Have you really given yourself a fair chance at making your dreams come true? Only you know the answer to that question. Play time is over. Don’t sell your life short. Focus on your hopes, goals, dreams, and desires. Its time to let it all hang out and go for the gold.

Average minds often dismiss the possibility of achieving something beyond their current capabilities. Movers and shakers never let anything get in their way of making their dreams come true. Its time for you to start shaking and baking. Turn up the flame on your burning desire to succeed so you can live the life you have always dreamed of.

Talk to Yourself The Right Way

Talk to Yourself

Would you ever go up to a friend and talk to them this way? “You loser, you are never going to amount to anything. You will never find happiness. You always fail at everything you try so why are you even going to waste your time. You are not smart enough to accomplish that. How in the world do you expect to get out of this mess?” Would you ever talk to anyone that way, let alone a friend? Of course you wouldn’t talk to anyone like that. What shocks me is that people consistently talk to themselves in that terrible manner and they wonder why their lives stink. I got news for you Captain Crunch, stinking thinking leads to a stinking life.

The quality of your life is going to depend on the quality of your thoughts. What you think, you will become. If you tell yourself you are a loser, you will always be a loser. Why would you sabotage your chances of achieving something if you are going to tell yourself that you are going to fail before you even try?

Research has shown that the power of positive thinking can make a major difference in the quality of someone’s life. Positive mental thoughts can change the behavior in under-achievers. Positive mental thoughts can lower stress levels. Positive mental thoughts can drastically improve your well being and your health. Positive mental thoughts can give you energy and motivation. Positive mental thoughts can improve someone’s athletic abilities. Positive mental thoughts can help you deal with adversity and challenges better. Do I need to continue or are you sold on the benefits of empowering thoughts? Just remember, the more empowering your thoughts, the more empowered your life will be.

Now if you have been mentally abusing yourself over the years with negative stinking thinking, it is going to be very hard to avoid thinking completely positive all the time. Negative thoughts are going to arise from time to time until you become a master of your thoughts. Don’t worry about it, don’t be extra hard on yourself with more negative stinking thinking. Just catch yourself from any additional negative thinking and change the focus of your thoughts to empowering thoughts. Over time your negative self talk will disappear and you will become a master of your thoughts.

The more you focus on empowering thoughts, the more your life will change for the better. Buddha said, “We are what we think. All that we are arises from within our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world.” When you become a master of your thoughts, impossible will no longer be in your vocabulary. The words I can’t will be replaced with I can. You will never fear failure again. You will achieve accomplishments beyond your current capabilities. Change your thoughts and you will change your life. Leave the negative stinking thinking for the rest of the world. You are on a mission to join the best of the world and the quickest way to do that is to become a master of your thoughts.
