Manufacture Your Day by KNOWING THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
Yesterday I had a session with my leadership coach and we reviewed my business progress.
All of a sudden she said to me, “Karin, do you even realize that you have built your business mainly with your mind?”
It’s true, all I had were supportive friends and positive psychology.
I am not a psychologist, which means that I don’t have a degree and I am o.k. with that. Had I known earlier how interesting it is, I may have studied it in university but instead I have studied it in my life to get ahead of the game. I have nothing to prove but so much to give.
Over the past 12 years I have practised the basics of business psychology on myself and my own business. Today there is nothing that I find more fulfilling than passing everything that I have learned and applied on to others.
I should have made a list of all the people who told me that building an international business as an new immigrant with a heavy accent and pretty basic language skills is mission impossible.
I only smiled and thought, “Sit tight and watch me.” That’s the power of believing in yourself.
Do you ever allow others to tell you what you’re capable of doing? This is the only time that I would tell you, “Don’t listen. They come from their own level of courage and experience, which has nothing to do with yours.”
I have always believed in myself because my parents believed in me and my abilities. I think this may be the greatest gift a parent can give.
I (and countless others) are proof that courage, passion, effort, a positive mental attitude, determination and persistence can get you further than any business degree ever would if you don’t display these attributes.
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, “I’m possible.” – Audrey Hepburn
Today I want you to reflect:
- What would it take for you to start believing that anything (in your personal or professional life) is possible?
- What thoughts do you have that may limit you?
- How much of your mental power do you give away to others?
A belief is nothing else but a thought that you keep thinking over and over again.
Change your thoughts. Change your beliefs. Change your life. It’s as simple as that.
Do you think it is about time to start thinking different thoughts?
Come on, learn to master your mind and you will be in good company. What are you waiting for?
