Your inner thoughts precede your outward results.

Belief in self is essential for achieving success.

For many, one of the most difficult principles to grasp is that we do possess the power to become the person we envision. And for most, it seems as if this is a pipe dream, but in fact, it is reality. Our thoughts do determine our outcome.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I should be the one selected to do that because…” but you resigned yourself to the fact another would be chosen due to extenuating circumstances? If this is the case, I encourage you to take the Thirty Day Challenge:

Over a thirty-day period track your thought process. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, turn it around to a positive. Document the negative and how you changed it into a positive. Next record the results from having made the change. Initially not much may change, but accumulatively, and if you remain faithful to the process, you will begin seeing a decline in negative thoughts and an increase in positive results.

Become the person you dream about

The subconscious plays a large role in determining our forthcoming actions. The step that complements the documentation is to focus on a far off goal that you deeply desire. Visualize having achieved your far off goal moments before drifting off to sleep. You are then able to do the right work while you literally sleep. Done consistently, you will find yourself taking action during the day to make the achievement possible. And before you know it, you will be ready for your next far off and attainable goal.

Mind, body and spirit have an enormous effect on our well-being and daily living. Mind should be focused on values, principles for life, and priorities to find meaning in your work and greater reward. Eating healthily and exercising regularly provides us with added energy and renewed spirit that you are able to achieve whatever you desire. And when working in unison, this paths work to keep our spirit strong. When we are at peace with who we are, in all of these regards, we are moved to greater awareness and achievement.

Adhering to taking care of our mind, body and spirit aligns us with positive thought and more thoughtful approaches to others. This is where our positive energy attracts those who think similarly whether for friendships or for business. Our spirit or energy may be sensed through all types of communication. This is why social media plays such a significant part in building business today. We have the ability to interact with people worldwide in numbers unheard of previously. This gives pause to question the type of people with whom you wish to connect.

Empower others

Combining an element of spirituality with business is accomplished by implementing a path for helping others by giving of your knowledge. The reward is a feeling of peace of mind.

By repositioning to implement all of the above, you will attract larger audiences. Your rejuvenated personal brand of working to help others will enable you to enjoy the Smooth Sale!
