Mastery Monday – Your Mindset is your greatest Asset.
My mentor, acting coach and friend Glenn Morshower taught me to consider these things:
1. Things go well for me – have that thought in your mind. Say it out loud and believe it.
2. Circumstances are better with me in them.
If you can’t say/believe these things about yourself, you have some work to do. If you don’t think things go well for you or that circumstances are better with you in them, who else will? How do you expect to succeed if you think the opposite of these things?
People wonder why so many negative things happen to them. Check your thoughts. Thoughts are things. What you think about you bring about and if you can get a grip on the chatter in your head, you’ve got it going on.
Does that mean nothing bad will ever happen? No, life happens and sometimes tragedy or bad things happen. It’s how you handle those things that matters. Last year this time my business was failing and I was ready to return to a corporate job. There were days where all I could do was cry out to God. I was not in a good place. My prayer was “God, please forgive me for my lack of faith and unbelief, Take away my doubt and fear, I turn it over to you.” That’s about all I could say some days.
The thing is I did what I could and kept moving forward. I made a decision to go to Kenya and start taking an acting class. I got on the plane to Kenya to serve and now my whole life has changed with the creation of https://basketsandbeadskenya.com
I listened to God’s whisper in my spirit and made some course corrections in my life. My company is winning contracts and I’m getting more speaking engagements than ever before. Most of all I am serving where he wants me to and changing the lives of many. They are depending on me to succeed. I will not let them down.
Your mindset is your greatest asset. Guard your thoughts, negativity abounds. You must eradicate negativity and keep focused on how awesome you are! Make it a great day.
