Hey, folks, today's topic I wanted to discuss with all of you is about how to change your mindset and change your life. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? If so! I would like to take this opportunity to see if I can help you change your mindset and change your life.
Would You Like To Learn How To Change Your Mindset And Change Your Life?
Examples Of Stinking Thinking!
Are you one of those people who sees the glass half empty or half full?
Are you one of those poor me baby types of people that everything just happens to and it's never your fault, or you don't know why bad things keep happening to you?
Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try to rise above life keeps kicking you in the teeth and knocking you back down?
Do you ever feel like you have sunk as low as you can go and are at the bottom of the barrel with no way out or no escape?
Are you one of those individuals who think Man I've got the worst luck in the world?
Unfortunately, that is what it takes for some people; in order, for them to turn their lives around. I don't want you to be an individual who hits rock bottom thinking there is no way out when the truth is the only way out is up.
What if I told you that there was no such thing as good or bad luck. Would you think I was crazy? What if I said that everything which is going wrong in your life today you brought it upon yourself.
Would you believe me? Of course not! But it's the truth whether you believe me or not!
I want to try and break some of this stuff down for you in the simplest way I can. Everything that has happened in your life up to this point you have brought upon yourself. The good as well as the bad.
Everything which has happened to you up to this stage in life is a total accumulation of your life choices and how you look at life. I know you think what the hell do you know and you are out of your freaking mind. My Fault, Yeah Right!
Now that you think I am a crazy person let me ask you a few more questions to try and get my point across.
If you are broke and don't have a penny to your name who's fault is it?
If you are overweight or obese who's fault is it?
If you can't hold down a job for being late all the time are not showing up for work whose fault is it?
If you already have children and you are still a little more than a child yourself who's fault is it?
If you can't keep a decent roof over your head and a dependable car to drive who's fault is it?
If you can't pay your bills or buy groceries who's fault is it?
Now you can sit there and blame everyone under the sun for all of your downfalls all you want too. Your parents, The economy, Bad luck, Carma, or whatever excuse you choose to use, but the bottom line is you are the one who has to take control of your life. No one else is in control of your life except you.
So if you don't have the things in life you want then the only way for you to get them is to change your life! My question to you now is, do you want to learn how to change your mindset and change your life?
The First Step
Is to stop blaming everyone else for your problems and start taking responsibility for your actions. Obstacles come along in everyone's lives but it is how you choose to look and deal with them is what counts.
You can look at every obstacle that shows up in your life, (and there will be many) as a reason or an excuse to give up, or you could ask yourself what can I learn from this.
If you can seriously learn to grasp this one concept and treat every obstacle no matter how big or small as either something to learn from or as just another piece of the puzzle of this game called life. Your life will instantly change and get a lot better.
If you learn to treat everything in life as a game, it can be a lot of fun to play and if you do that you will get to a point in your life where almost no one or nothing can get you down.
You will be on a natural high because then everyone will be wondering what you know that they don't.
The Second Step
Is to set some goals for yourself no matter how big or small they are you just needs some goals to strive for and accomplish.
I have a ritual I do every year on New Years while everyone else is out partying. I usually sit down somewhere quiet by myself with pen and paper in hand and reflect on the past year's events while asking myself these questions.
Did I accomplish everything I set out to do?
Am I satisfied with the job I have?
Am I happy with my life?
What things do I want to try and accomplish this year?
I always write down more goals than I can get done. I put them up on my wall by my computer where I can see them every day as a reminder. I always mark them off as I get them finished. The ones I don't complete gets put on the Next Years goals with a lot more added to it.
By doing things this way I always have something to strive for, focus on, and accomplish. I know it doesn't sound like much fun does it? One important thing to remember is you always need to celebrate every goal you complete no matter how big or small.
The Third Step
Is I also take a hard look at myself and find things which I don't like about myself and then I work on changing those things as well.
Examples of things I work on about myself.
Maybe I need to lose a few pounds.
I don't eat healthy enough foods.
Smoke too much.
Drink too many sodas.
Drink too much alcohol.
Gossip too much.
Need to exercise more.
Talk too much.
Need to listen more to other people.
The Fourth Step
Is to pick one of my goals from the list and stay focused on it till I get it accomplished and then move on to the next one. Now some goals require more money than others, and I don't fret over it I just skip over it till a later date when I have more money to put towards it.
If I don't get it done this year, then it goes on my next year's list. Don't ever worry yourself over not completing all of your goals like I said I always put more down than I can get done.
The ones which require more money may have to be done a few years down the road, but that is ok because it is just the game of life and nothing more.
A lot of people take things so serious in life such as I got to have this or I got to have that, but the funny thing about getting older is you start to realize the things you thought mattered so much wasn't that important after all.
If a person would learn how to live a simple basic life meaning the things you need out of life.
This is all we need to live a good life!
Everything else is just not that damn important. It isn't life or death because you don't own the most expensive house, automobile, clothing, etc., etc. None of those things have anything at all to do with living a good life.
The Fifth Step
Is bigger and more expensive is not always better. It's about being practical in what your actual needs are in life and how you spend your money.
My girlfriend is always talking about wanting a bigger house. I have a three bedroom two bath home that's about 1500 square feet on nearly six acres of land, and it's paid off, and I no longer have any kids at home.
So, I am here to tell you two of the bedrooms and one bathroom never gets used unless company comes over and spends the night which is not that often.
I am 52 years old and I don't want to start over paying for another home when I am already out of debt. For me! Now is the time to take all of that extra money and go on some nice vacations and see some of this beautiful world Our Creator made for us.
I hope you now know some ways in how to change your mindset and change your life.
