Today I want to talk to you about some soul searching I've been doing over the past few weeks. It's been prompted by my coach, James Wedmore. I went to his BBD live in Laguna Beach back in November and they had Jim Thornton come on stage. I hadn't heard of Jim Thorton previously, but I later learned that he's a really big NLP practitioner and coach to celebrities, CEO's and business owners. What he said on stage really blew my mind so I decided to share them with you today.
The way Jim encourages people to take more responsibility for their lives and where they are in their business are very valid statements that need to be made. The number one thing that stood out to me were the stories. Almost every time we have created a negative thought or a negative belief, it's always actually been a story that we've created or our interpretation of what happened. When something goes wrong or a client cancels a session or appointment it can be so easy to think that we, as practitioners or business owners, did something wrong, when that is rarely ever the case. So try this:
When a thought comes into your brain that is not going to serve you, or give you momentum to move forward or does not positively reinforce you in any way, stop thinking those thoughts.
As soon as I started doing that, I immediately started to get more shit done!
The other idea that really stood out to me is the idea of "be-ing." You will never be that person that you want to be if you are not acting like that person. Most people follow the mantra of once I have the money, then I can start to do these things, then I will be happy. It's that have, do, be mentality. However, we need to change that into BE, do have. I am now going to be that person. I'm not going to want to get up early, I'm just going to be that person, I'm going to get up early.
It's all about taking radical responsibility for everything in your life.
I'm going in depth about both of these ideas because it's so important to have a proper mindset, make the changes in your life that you want to, and becoming the person that you want to be. It's not as scary or as daunting as you might think. I'm so excited to share all of these ideas with you and would love to hear what you think.
