Do You Know This #1 Trick To More Business Success?

This way or That way

Do you go into a downward spiral where you tell yourself “I’ll never make it… What’s the point because nothing I try works?… Uther people are much better than me…” and on and on.

When this happens, does it feel as if you have no control over your thinking? It just seems to happen all on its own, and then bam! you’re beating yourself up for being a loser and a failure.

The good news is… it doesn’t have to be like this.

Because the wonderful truth is: 

You always have a choice about how you think IN EVERY MOMENT. Even when you don’t believe you have a choice, you still have one.

Here’s the choice you get to make in every waking moment:

Are you going to listen to other people’s opinions about you? OR are you going to trust yourself and listen to your own opinion of yourself? 

If you want to be really successful, you HAVE TO filter out the negative voices of those around you. So that you can see through to the truth about yourself. 

This is Truth About You:

You are perfect… just as you are.  

Take a good, long hard look at all the negative opinions you’ve believed to be true about yourself – all your life. Maybe your father or mother told you you’ll never amount to anything, maybe your teacher told you you’d never make it, maybe your boss criticised you. 

Filter out all that old stuff. And you’ll start to see something much better for your future than they ever did. 

Make a decision right now to stop carrying around this heavy baggage – it’s not your baggage, it’s other people’s baggage. Do you REALLY want to spend the rest of your life carrying around their negative views about you? No, I didn’t think so.

Other people’s opinions about you have NOTHING to do with you and who you are.

Make a choice right now (seriously, there’s not a moment to lose) to start listening EXCLUSIVELY to your nurturing voice of wisdom telling you the Truth about who you really are.

It’ll make a huge difference to what you believe you can achieve.

A more successful business is simply one choice away.

Chasing the day or leading it?

How do you start your day? With a cup of coffee? Scroll through Facebook? Do household chores? Does this energise you to work through your To-do list? Or do you drag yourself to your desk dreading whatever is going to be thrown at you that day? There is another way to...

I hated my new house

I hated my new house

When I moved to a new town back in 2000, I hated it. I didn't like the house, I didn’t like my husband going off to work and leaving me with 3 young children, and I didn’t like not having any friends. All I wanted was to get back to my old lovely life in London in my...

I got stuck at this income

I got stuck at this income

When I worked at Time life books, back in the late 80s and 90s, I reached the giddy height of being a senior product manager. My salary was £25k. That number stuck in my head for a very long time. It became the income glass ceiling I had innocently set for myself. I...
