Do you feel like you are living up to your potential today?
Recently, I told a friend that as a single man, I don’t think that there’s much of a worst feeling than knowing that your life does not merely reflect the amount of potential you have to do great things.
I’ll be brutally honest with you. As of now, my finances are pretty low. I work a $11/hour job, I have no car, I pay half the rent of a low-class apartment and because of those things, I don’t have the freedom to enjoy life as well as I know I can.
I am not writing this post to complain. I am not writing this to vent. I am writing this to show that there are those of us who may not be living a good life now but believe that they can very soon. Not only do we believe it, but we are already forming habits that will help get us get there.
Along with my full time job, I have an Ebay store, I am pursuing a second job, I have this blog site, I distribute for Advocare, and I am working to be a life insurance agent. That’s a lot of hats, I know. I also know that I will have a simple life again. I can say that all of this has spurred on from seeing the potential that is in me. Once one or two of those streams of income flourish, I will drop the other ones to obtain that simple life.
See, I know in my mind that if you see success IN you, you will see it around you. I’m just starting to tap into that. I am feeding off success stories from videos of people who have successful Ebay businesses. I am reading a book from Dean Graziosi, who is a successful millionaire. I am in relationships with those who own their business or who make a lot of money to support their families and leave lasting legacies for their children.
How is it that I can do these things, knowing the dire financial position I am currently in??
It is because I see myself being in their shoes already! I see myself making 6 figures or more on ebay. I see myself being the author I desire to be. I see myself being in great shape. Most of all, I see myself being a stable provider for my future wife and kids. My future is not the present yet but I see it already.
For most of my 31 years of life, I struggled HARD to see a wealthy future. I grew up with very low self esteem, I was bullied for much of my school career and I just wouldn’t excel at anything.
Now my narrative is about to change. I feel it! I know it! Not only that, I am thinking, learning, and am walking in that wealthy mindset. I subconsciously tell myself that I have a wealthy mind too!
Proverbs says that we think therefore we are. So it’s time to think like a wealthy person if you want to be wealthy.
If you are struggling to see a bright future for yourself, take a moment to ask yourself why that is. Be real, honest and raw. Don’t make excuses either. Just tell yourself what your narrative is.After that, learn how to change your narrative. See yourself for who you can truly become and watch your life start changing.
