Just like our technology has surpassed our humanity. So to has our financial success surpassed our mindset. Without our mindset knowing that “we deserve” our success, our minds will defeat us and destroy our success. Arriving at achievement without fulfillment in tact is short lived. It takes fulfillment (happiness) to sustain achievement. Our mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what isn’t, we create what we believe.

So what do we do about it? Develop our mindset and our spirit. This life isn’t only about making money, or being successful people. This is about your LIFE. I live with a man who needs a life coach more than anyone I know, but he can’t see me. So I began asking myself, why can’t he see me? Which opened up a whole can of worms for me (because it isn’t really about him, it is about ME). I don’t think I have ever felt “seen”, truly “seen” by anyone else in my life. Has anyone really ever taken a deep interest in me to really make me feel seen? truly seen by them? NOPE. The truth is we are all on our own journey even it you are married or walking along side a partner for years. You are on your own journey, I am on my own journey. Most people are more concerned with themselves than what is going on with you. They are preoccupied with their own goals, feelings, and thoughts.
In the game of life we are so busy seeking approval from others that we forget the only persons approval that matters is our own approval of ourselves. So in your own head…Do you deserve your successes? Do you sabotage your success because of some secret negative belief that you don’t deserve it? Do you support yourself as well as you support others? Do the others in your life support and appreciate you and reciprocate with you? Are the relationships you surround yourself with familiar or good for you? (those are often opposites).
Stop seeking approval from others, and give it to yourself! Develop your own mindset, so when success is achieved it will be sustained and lasting in your life. And surround yourself with people who lift you up, or at least don’t put you down (even if that is what is familiar to you).
I have discovered that I can’t always be the person who brings others up, sometimes I need to be the one who brings myself up. And if I am lucky, I will find someone else who has done the work on their own mindset to heal from their ghosts and demons too. At least I am with someone who doesn’t put me down! Your success in life depends on you healing your own mindset and spirit not just on your financial or career success.
So the bottom line here is “we get what we believe we deserve”. So with this said I am working on changing my beliefs.
What are you feeling about?
What do you believe you deserve?
Are you ready to change those beliefs to create lasting success? Or at least step up to the next step in your life. You are the only one on your journey, are you growing? Have you made progress? Do you have a good relationship with yourself? If so, stop and give yourself a pat on the back. If not, maybe that is why you can’t sustain your success? One of the best sources I have found for improving my own mindset is “The Science of Getting
Rich” by Wallace Waddles. It is age old wisdom that has held truth over time. Shift your mindset now with me by listening HERE.
Rich isn’t just about money, richness in life is found in all areas, great friendships, lasting success, comfortable homes, etc. Enrich your mindset, so what you create in life can be lasting.
Cheers to your health,
Are you chasing something “out there” to be happy? What if you don’t have to do ” all those things” to get what you want? What if you were to just “be the person you want to be”? What are you telling your brain?
