You are in control of yourself, your life and all that you do in it. How do you move past the current situation you are in today? Get educated – learn all you can about your industry or one you want be a part of and become the expert. It doesn’t take much. Read for one hour per day in the field you wish to learn. One hour per day turns into one book per week. One book per week becomes 52 in one year. You tell me if you read 52 books on one subject and can’t become an expert, I will tell you, you are wrong. Most people don’t read one book in a year. Learn what you have read and apply it to the real world situations you encounter.
Those who know and do more than others in any walk of life earn more respect, get more recognition and go further in their careers. And, guess what? They earn more money. If you want to change where you are in life, you need to change your attitude and regain control of your thoughts, desires and where you want to be. As the saying goes, “if it is to be, it is up to me”. So become positive and optimistic. There are so many negative people in the world and there is so much negative press on the television, in newspapers, etc. and they all want company. My advice is to avoid these people. Look at every opportunity as a learning experience and as an opportunity. Not a problem. Become solution oriented and you will get results and become even more optimistic and positive. If you smile more – this too will help you so start with this simple task! Hang around positive forward thinking people and learn how they handle situations and remain optimistic. It is a learned skill – teach it to yourself.
Stop blaming others, the economy, the industry you are in, the government or any other excuse. You determine where you end up in life. There are countless numbers of people whom have come from every walk in life with every opportunity presented to them and it is the ones who take advantage of what is presented and makes the most of the experiences that gains the most from them.
Other people get tired of hearing negative responses to everything said or about everything that happens around them. Take the time to figure it out for yourself. Do something about your current situation. Don’t be a victim and become a success story and share your story with others. Life is a contact sport, become a part of it and direct yourself to where you want to go and reap the rewards.
Again, you control your destiny. Make the most of your time – do what makes you the most productive, consistently and you will get results. Get it? Got it? Good!
Now, go sell something!
