it. And many times you may use positive expressions that make you feel good temporarily, but that’s it. For exam- ple, when you say, “I need to…, I should…, I want to…, I hope I can…. There are many things that we all “need” to do, but that doesn’t mean we do them. If you ever said something like, “I hope I’ll do what I say.” You can see that statement has no power. You will either do what you say, or you won’t. Once again, if you find yourself saying these things, examine what would have you speak so passively. You might have some hidden fears. Be honest with yourself. You may fool everyone else, but you can’t fool yourself. Finally, examine your personal belief systems in depth. If you don’t believe in yourself or your abilities, it will stop your growth. Consider that you never, ever go for things you don’t believe you can achieve. It would make no sense. So, if you have a core belief that it’s hard to do business in Albuquerque, it will be. If you have a core belief that you are a lousy salesperson or you’re not a good marketer, then that is what you will be. If you “fear rejection” so you stop making sales calls, your cash flow will stop as well. The point is, you must deal with whatever it is that you’re truly afraid of or with whatever excuses you’re making. It’s the beginning of the year. It’s time to get real. It’s time to take responsibility. It’s time to let your past failures and disappointments go. It’s time for you to thrive. It’s time for you to really enjoy your life. So, when you find out what- ever you’re afraid of, look it square in the eye and say, “Enough! I am good enough! I have nothing to be scared of. I can do anything I set my mind to. I am a winner. I am a champion. I am a successful business person. I got this!” The more positive you are, the better. The more good things you tell yourself, the better your life will be and that will translate into your business. So get to know yourself, what’s truly important to you, and what makes you tick. When you do, you will become quite successful, easier and faster than you thought possible. Darshan G.
