Can You Predict Your Future Success?
You don’t have to tell me because only you hold the answer to that question. The real question is this…Are You Playing To Win Or Are You Playing Not To Lose?
Before you answer that out loud, I want you to think what you are saying from the inside. Because most people do what they have to do because they HAVE TO.
It is something we have been programmed since we were little kids. For example when your parents tell you that you HAVE TO do your homework, clean your room, eat your vegetables, etc.
The bad thing about this programming is that we take it to our adulthood. People would roll out of bed in the morning because they HAVE TO. They go to their job they hate because they HAVE TO. And the sad thing is when they play the money game, they play because…they HAVE TO.
It all boils down to this…Most people play NOT TO LOSE
Can you think of someone whether a movie star or a business owner who is successful that was playing it safe and not really going ALL in? I can’t.
When you are playing NOT TO LOSE, you are playing it safe and you are in the defense mode. And when you are playing in the defense mode you can’t play to win because you can’t score.
We are either growing or dying… you either win or lose. The things that you do has to have some kind of strong energy behind it. For example, when you are inspired, things are EASY to do. You don’t have to make yourself do it, things just flows smoothly.
When you are excited, you attract new ideas, you get creative and you don’t even feel stuck, because you keep your eyes on the prize. You start operating on a different level. Work becomes fun and it’s not something you HAVE TO do anymore.
Making follow-up phone calls, attending training sessions, writing blog posts…EVERYTHING you do gets a whole lot easier. Your attitude is everything and it is contagious. Doors of opportunity swing wide open in front of you, because you suspend your disbelief. You are taking control of your business and in your life as well…while most people are just letting things happen to them.
Isn’t it more exciting to do things because you WANT TO instead of HAVE TO do them? Wouldn’t you just love to jump out of bed in the morning and embrace your day instead of dragging your feet just trying to make it? See, it all starts with this attitude of playing to WIN and NOT TO LOSE. And when you do, it’s just a matter of time before everything clicks and you’re on an easy path towards the life you truly desire.
