Mind games

Under the pressure of day-to-day battle, you will, at some point, think you want to throw in the towel. For some, this may very well be sage advice. For most of you, it will prove to be a big mistake.

Regardless of your lot in life, there will be times when you decide that a hot dog stand sounds so much more appealing that a travel agency!

We all experience doubts.

We all question life’s logic.

We all wonder why.

We all second-guess.

When your mind starts to play games with you (and it will) fight back by doing something you have been wanting to do.

  • Define in concrete terms whom you would like to meet and eventually do some business with.
  • Polish up your outdated database. Get rid of “yesterday’s news” and add “today’s opportunities.”
  • Begin writing a rough draft for that Special Report you know you should be “rough drafting.” Title: WHAT EVERYBODY SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ……

Don’t allow your mind to negatively influence your week. Trust me. It will try. I learned this lesson a long time ago when I was training for an Ironman– one’s mind always quits first.

Just when it seems that your body can’t take another step and when you are so fatigued you feel that you are going to fall down and never get up, you find some inner strength to keep on going.

Your mind will always try to find a way to sabotage your progress. It will try quit on you. Don’t let it.

Spend time this week training your mind. James Allen wrote “As a man thinketh, so he becomes.” How true this is. Work on your mind and all else will fall into place.
