Welcome back to your second lesson on Secrets to Unlocking Your Inner Success.
The majority of successful people often keep today’s secret to themselves keep to or they gloss over it without giving it a second thought. They don’t intentionally withhold it… it’s just a way of life for them… just like breathing air. Something they do naturally.
It’s this one thing that propels someone to live the very successful life they’re meant to enjoy.
Anyone running a business online during the past 9 years probably knows my mentor Alexandria Brown. Formally known as the eZine Queen.
Over the years, Ali slowly grew her business. Suddenly she appeared to experience a meteoric rise. You knew through observation something happened to make this dramatic change. She experienced an 862% growth in a 3 year span… going from $397,000 to over 3 million. She made the Inc.’s top 500 Company list in 2009.
I asked Ali, during one of our mentor calls, what caused the shift, she said she spent time on her mindset and told me what program she used. I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t purchase the program until a year later… duh!
She would later reveal the full truth in an interview. "What I don’t reveal during a lot of my talks and to my list is I actually spend just as much time on my personal development as I do on my marketing. You really need to work on your mindset so you can get out of your own way."
WOW… I actually spend just as much time on my personal development as I do my marketing.
I heard this years earlier from my favorite motivational speaker Jim Rohn. He said his mentor Mr. Shoaff told him, "Jim if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job."
Jim admits from that moment on he worked on his own personal development and said this was the most challenging assignment of all. The business of personal development last a lifetime.
While I made personal development a part of my life, I definitely didn’t take to level Ali did. It wasn’t until I witness the huge change in her life did I fully grasp the importance of devoting time to work on myself. Believe me I now devote a lot of time to my mindset.
Dr. Robert Anthony says the only thing we can take with us when we leave this planet is the knowledge or meaning we give to our lives.
Second Secret to Unlocking Your Success: Work Harder On Yourself than Anything Else.
Last lesson I mentioned success is something already inside you… you just need to become aware of it. The awareness starts with your perception of yourself… your self-image.
You accept, relate or reject everything in your mental and physical environment based on your level of awareness.
Your present level of Awareness indicates your mood, attitudes, emotional reactions, prejudices, desires, habits, fears, anxieties, aspirations and goal. Your present level of awareness also indicated your sense of personal worth or how you fell about yourself.
Self-image is how you see yourself. It influences your esteem
Self-esteem is your internal feelings and evaluation of you based on your "perceived" self-image.
Self-esteem and self image are closely inter-related. Your level of confidence comes from both. High self image leads to high self confidence… something very necessary to release and live a successful life.
Changing your self image begin with changing the inner aspects of your thinking. Only YOU are in charge of your mind. Your life will change only after you make the change from within.
Working harder on yourself through personal restoration, you can expand your awareness and remove "mistaken beliefs" that keep you from becoming the self confident person you’re meant to be.
Time has come for you to stop everything else and give total priority to your needs first… to make your number one priority in life the "expansion of your awareness."
