There are times when
we just don't feel good about our
situation in life... we're ready to try something... anything.
And that's good - trying is better than nothing. Yet I know what it's
like to feel exhausted from trying and still never feel like anything
significant has been achieved. The good news is there's always hope.
But to reach that good news, we must give up hoping all the time and
start taking action. But not just any action.
Key: The thing that is
between an idea in your mind and the idea becoming a reality is CONSCIOUSNESS and ENERGY.
The kind of thinking you use and the energy you create around you makes
the difference. Be aware of the kind of energy inside you, and
the kind energy you put out there.
example of what I mean: With good intentions, Nancy is
looking for a producer to help her project. Notice how her email
displays a "less-than" attitude....
Q) I have these 2 songs that I wrote and
they have been sitting in limbo for many a years. I need a producer
that will back me up...
Good for you for
sending an email asking for support. Let
me give some observations:
there's little excitement around something "sitting in limbo for
years." Gads! Spider webs all other the place! How many ads on TV do
you hear where they tell you their product is ancient?
notice whether or not you sound "needy" in your request. People
who are power-packed with incredible talent and energy don't "need" a
producer. They may desire one, but they know
the producer will
want them as much as they want
the producer. An artist who
feels their product is HOT doesn't come from an energy of needing.
Success attitude #1
- Come from HAVING
energy, not needing it.
...and if the songs make it on air and make it to the charts,
hopefully we will both be a little better financially.
Very few people are
attracted to the word "if." It
contains a track record of more failure than success. "Hopefully"
contains a high track record of failure too. Plus "a little
better financially" isn't what successful people want. They want a LOT
of success! Instead say, "Teaming up with a dynamic producer, I intend
for us both to achieve great financial success when this product is
Success attitude #2
- Come from strong
intentions, not humble beginnings.
I don't have the finances to pull this
off,but hopefully a good hearted person will help me out and get paid
back when the song or songs make it.
No one is attracted
to what you don't have. Concentrate
your confidence on what you do have, and advertise
relentlessly. Plus, you can design who you attract with more precision.
Beyond a "good hearted person" you can ask for a solidly connected,
enthusiastic and focused individual (or team).
Success attitude #3
- Display your talents
with enthusiasm, and those equally as talented will appear in exact
proportion to your willingness to receive them. Be specific. You will
get what you ask for.
I'm a mother of 3 struggling and working at a walmart, yeah I know
walmart is a big franchise,but believe me or not,the workers don't make
alot of money,we just get alot of aching bones.
People are not
attracted to your strife anymore than they
are attracted to what you don't have. Save that story for the
interviews after the songs have gone multi-platinum and you want to
inspire millions to go for their dreams. Besides, the most successful
people in the world get aching bones and they basically don't care.
They just see it as part of the process to get what their
Success attitude #4
- See struggle as part
of the process. See struggle as a signal from your very soul saying
that something in your life is out of alignment. Pain happens, but
suffering is optional. Pay attention to everything you're feeling. If
it's negative, consciously decide that you want something different and
start pulling ideas out of completely different places... then
take action based on those new ideas.
I myself have had the ruff bunt of life throwed at me many atimes...
The only way out of
the energy of victimhood is to
take responsibility (I like to phrase it response-ability). While it's
true that we may not have deserved a bum deal, at some level, we had a
part in creating it. A great way to change feeling out-of-control is to
say "I've been in control all along and I'm in control now. I can't
change the past, but I can change my future by how I am being now."
Base your actions knowing that EVERY ENERGY ATTRACTS. Negative energy attracts negative, positive energy attracts positive.
Since it all attracts something, simply decide what it is you want
|Success attitude #5
- Make every
effort (big or small) to BE positive. Decide to DO positive, and then do
it. Decide to SPEAK positive, and then speak it. Decide to
THINK positive, and then think it.
...and I'm just looking for the good life so many people say thats out
life" can be wonderful, but why not
achieve a great
life? Decide how
many of your
limitations you want to buy into. Plus, your words make it sound like
"the good life" is almost out of reach. Certainly we feel that way
sometimes. If you need to feel that way, go for it... for about 20
minutes... and then look at what you already have. My guess is there no
one is about to haul you off to a concentration camp right now. Your
life probably IS good in many ways. ...doesn't mean it can't be richer
or more rewarding...
Success attitude #6
- Appreciate life and
what you HAVE achieved. Smile more. It's attractive. Want more
appreciation? Be appreciative.
[The first person I dealt with] never once did anything with [my]
song... it was one of those poems to music deals that wasn't really a
deal at all. A 'get your hopes up' kind of thing and then dump it.
lesson learned is
valuable. Thank that person for that
value. Babe Ruth struck out in baseball more times than anyone in
history, but his success happened because he kept on swinging. He
wasn't victim to his strikeouts. Each one was a vehicle for perfecting
Success attitude #7
- Life is what you make
it. Stop making it about what you haven't got (being in an energy-state
of wanting) and make it about what you intend to get (being in an
energy-state of growth).
[I have] many talents... but never seem to get no where with.
you speak it,
so it is.
Plus, a mediocre
delivery of your message can never make anyone feel amazed by you.
Success attitude #8
- Learn to speak the perfect end result. Do what it takes to
speak and write with excellent grammar (trust me, I'm still working on
mine) and deliverance. Be
prepared to meet great stuff by BEING great... one step at a
So tell me the truth please,tell me if this lady is just wasting her
time or is there potential for something that will make my family happy.
by example - be
the model. Your family will be
happier as you model
happier. If you want
more money, give more
money (and I don't mean be financially irresponsible). Example: If you
normally go out to dinner and tip 10%, try 11% instead. If you normally
don't give to a homeless person on the street, give them 50 cents... or
more. BE generous in any new way you can. People with less stress feel
they can afford to be generous, so model
you have less stress.
Success attitude #9
- If you want more
success, support others in their success. It comes back to you.
Supporting others is attractive... just don't sacrifice your own
business in order to do that. Balance the supporting of other's
business with minding your own. A good book I recommend is "Rich Dad,
Poor Dad" by Robert T. Kiyosaki.
Success attitude #10
those around you who contribute to your life.
We're surrounded by
angels... sometimes we just don't know
it. Even small acknowledgements are win-win - it feels good to both
parties. Acknowledgements are gifts that are easy to overlook - so do
it often. It's an easy and free way to display energy coming from your
greatness... by simply being great. To sum it up, the quickest
way to success is through BEING... the
having and doing will happen automatically.
great, teach peace,be healthy and smile! Thank you for your
email, and may you enjoy the best!
