How Rejection Actually Hurts

How Rejection Actually HurtsAs a success coach, I often observe the behavior of people to determine what drives and motivates them. Almost everyone I meet has a big vision and an inborn desire to be or do something far beyond their current reality. Very few people, however, take the required action to move towards those desires.

There are plenty of reasons why someone does not take action on a big idea but it usually boils down to some sort of fear that ultimately stops them. Okay, so I am not uncovering any groundbreaking information here! We all have fears and most of us know how they have been affecting our results.

A Question of Questions

Ask yourselfDo you remember when you were at school – everyone seems to have had at least one teacher who had no time for children. You get an answer wrong, and scathingly get asked, “What’s wrong with you?”

What a terrible question! No sooner are you asked it, but your brain starts searching for answers. “It must be ‘cos I’m stupid,” or something of that ilk.

The trouble is, we often grow up asking ourselves questions like that all the time. That’s not going to make you feel too good about yourself, is it?

Hardships Are Assets

Hardships Are AssetsI have recently started following an up and coming motivational speaker based out of the US named Eric Thomas. Eric has a very inspirational story and is doing some incredible work to help the inner city youth throughout the country.

In one of his talks to a group of students, he describes dropping out of high school and spending over 2 years of his life homeless and living in fear on a daily basis. This was a very common theme in the area he grew up in. He then states that that period of his life is actually his greatest gift! After feeling the pain of living on the streets, he overcame the odds, completed high school and college and is now an international speaker working on his PhD.

What is Your End Goal?

What is your end goal?It’s easy to feel cut off from the rest of the world and to even feel a little out of sync from those around you. You work hard but maybe don’t feel like you are achieving all that you should. It might be that you haven’t defined your goals clearly in your own mind before starting out. Think about it, if you had to go on a long journey, would you do so in a haphazard way with no idea of how to get there? It’s unlikely, so why set out goals that are going to impact your life but that haven’t been thought through properly?

Goal setting is powerful and it’s vital if you wish to have a successful future. It might sound old hat, but you need to create stepping stones towards your end goals as otherwise it’s an almighty leap to get to where you wish to be.

Why Isn’t The Law of Attraction Working For You?

Law of AttractionWhy Isn’t The Law of Attraction Working For You?

The law of attraction definitely works- it is a proven system for manifesting whatever you want into your life. The basic principles are to simply state your goals or desires (intentions), focus on them with feeling, believe that they are on their way to you and be open to receiving them. It sounds very simple- and it is. However, a lot of people are struggling with this. We are simply not used to achieving our goals this way. Using our thoughts to manifest our desires, rather than our actions, is a whole new concept for us.

The Abundance Mindset

The Abundance MindsetOne key element of the law of attraction is developing a mindset of abundance rather than lack or scarcity. Too many people have a lack or scarcity mindset without even being aware of it. It’s easy to find out where your mindset lies; just become aware of your everyday actions and thoughts. For example, do you feel that if someone becomes rich, then the amount of money available for everyone else is diminished? Are you constantly thinking I can’t afford it’ when you see something you would like? If you and a colleague are both applying for a promotion, would you refuse to help him with a piece of work he is having difficulty with in case it jeopardizes your own chances? If so, you are focused on lack.
