I get it. You want the quick and easy way to fame and fortune. You want to be the go to guy or gal in your niche. And you want it all now. Sorry to take the wind out of your sails, but it’s gonna take work. But even more important than the work is your mindset. Without the right mental point of view, or if you have no self-control, your efforts will rarely achieve your goal. So here it is… just for you… The Ultimate Free Home-Based Business Building Gizmo... is Your Own Self Control.
Over the next few posts, let's dig into what it takes to create a mindset to help instead of hinder your efforts. This is no self-control bible, it's just tips meant to help supercharge your results. Let’s go.
It’s been said everybody has two lives. The first, is the amazing gift of life we’ve been given… It didn’t cost nothin’. We're here and we are.
Then, there's the life we create for ourselves. We are given the raw material - our unique strengths, our free will, and His Word. Discovering, developing, and taking advantage of our God-given gifts and keeping His principles for living in mind is the foundation for the complete life we choose to create for ourselves. The thing is, self-control is at the heart of it all.
I believe everyone is an expert at something. Fortunately, all of us possess remarkable hidden abilities. Here’s the rub. Our talents won’t simply appear to us on a silver platter. It takes time and experience to find out what exactly our real expertise is. That’s the purpose of a real education. Education doesn't have to mean going to school. We've all known people who say they've graduated from hard knocks university, and you know what? Many of those people are super-successful in life and business
We have to think and do many different things so we can figure out what our passion is on our own. It's an unfortunate thing is many people never figure out what their passion really is. There's no self-control app to guide your choice. There are a number of self-control apps to help you once you make your choice. Remember many people know how to make a living, but not too many know how to create a life of their own.
Discovering where we excel is our reason why, as well as the cornerstone of our own individual journey. Your brilliance may be identified when you’re young. Or, you might stumble upon it at any stage of your life. No matter where, what, or when, once we finally understand what our personal talents are, it’s a mistake not to develop them. The world needs your best. Self-control will help you become your best.
The pursuit of excellence is the first step toward a successful life. Who and what you develop into during your life is what matters. Failures often say; " That's the way I am." What a pile of monkey muck.! What they don't have is self-control.
Many of the successful people I know do not believe in failure at all. Of course, there will be setbacks… they happen to everybody. But here is where you can help yourself.
Learn from your mistakes. Use your own self-control to keep going. Your next thing is right around the corner. The only true failure is quitting.
Some people stumble into good results, and declare they're "self-made". Without a plan and perseverance, "I always believed I'd get here." are empty words. Life is a possibility. It's never a sure thing.
Want to know something else? When you don't have self-control, you are your own worst enemy. Have you ever said that to yourself? I know I have. Weak people are at the mercy of circumstances. Reacting instead of acting. They drift from day to day like a butterfly flits flower to flower.
Strong people create their own situations. They quickly act in their own self-interest as well as the interest of people they care about. Whether you're a winner or loser depends on your self-control; your character, how you use your talents, your hopes and dreams and most importantly, how well you can get along with others.
Create your world or someone else will create one for you.
