This sign (in the bathroom of my doctors office actually) reminded me of a principle that I all too often forget to live by.
“Say what you want, not what you don’t…”
To lead all: conversation, thought, and actions with what you actually WANT, versus what you DON’T, is a powerful way to send out into the universe (and everything in it) the clearest message of your intentions.
I remember years of struggle as an employee. I knew what I didn’t like about my lifestyle; not enough time, money, sleep. I didn’t have the flexibility to do the things that I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it (aka FREEDOM).
Don’t get me wrong, it was perfectly clear to ME what I wanted. I wanted a better lifestyle and a few nice toys. But the question remained — what was the message that I was sending out to the universe on a weekly, daily, and hourly basis? The message was: I DON’T HAVE WHAT I WANT.
Here is a page from my journal written back in 2002:
Projecting what you DON’T want, is not going to get you what you DO want. For example, if you go to Google.com and search: “I want to get out of debt” — you’ll notice the responses you get back are all related to just getting out of debt. But do you really want to just get out of debt? Of course, not.
You want to get out of debt, get back your freedom, AND have the lifestyle of your dreams! The simple fact remains: if the message of your thoughts, words and actions does not specify what you DO want, you’ll simply never get it.
Then I started reading a book called “…Anything Fast” by Stuart Lichtman (you can get it here: http://www.anything-fast.com <<Also available in your myccmarketing back office here:http://myccmarketing.com/stuartlichtman.php) and learned how to clearly define what it is I wanted to accomplish.What sounded like a simple process, was more of a mind boggling task. I had been so focused on survival for so long, that my mind became muddled and confused when I tried to force myself to get really clear on what I wanted, and how I was going to get it.
This was one of the most challenging tasks I had ever taken on, but I stuck with it. The “dam” finally broke after the 6th week, and abundance started to flow for me.
It was fast. It was furious. And to this day, six years later, it has not stopped.
Do you know what you really want in life? Do you know who you are? Are you clear on your “X”? Your “WHY.” Your cause, purpose, and mission? If not, I suggest you get the book I mentioned above and join me on the Leadership Mastermind Call TODAY at 1pm EST (DIAL: +1 507-726-3494 x11267#). I am going to be talking more about this topic. Should be a good call… See you there!
All my best,
