You have people, I don’t care how much evidence is given to them showing something won’t work out, they still operate on pure emotion. They don’t listen to logic. It is just, this is what I want. It should work out. It is a false narrative.
If you’re operating on false narratives and you get undesirable results, whose fault is that? If you continue to behave like things aren’t the way they are and those things bite you in the ass, who is to blame?
Not too long ago I had someone arguing with me over personal responsibility on this channel. That’s what it boils down to. When you’re young, you have all the excuses in the world to be ignorant. You’re young. You don’t know anything. Maybe you grew up in a bad situation. Maybe nobody’s helping you out or giving you good mentorship or guidance.
But once you reach a certain age and you remain ignorant, that’s on you. That’s not on anyone else. That is on you. That is your baggage. That is something that you own, but you get people who just refuse to accept that.
Mindset is critical in each and every thing that you do. It is so important. I don’t even have a good example.
Sometimes I get frustrated because people are looking for shortcuts. People are looking for a push button solution where they really don’t have to work that hard or they’re looking at someone else’s life without breathing that air. You can’t look at someone else’s success and hope that’s going to be yours because typically you’re not going to get all the information. You can reverse engineer only so much. That’s one of the things I learned in sales.
When you are not privy to the right information, it is hard to make better decisions. It is hard. It is daunting. I see many people who research successful people. I suggest that you do research successful people. At some point, you have to take that research and put it where the rubber meets the road. You’ve got to put it in effect. Once again, that’s mindset.
I have experienced some things in my life that people said weren’t going to happen. I put it in my mind that it was going to happen. I clung to it. There are some days you get weak. You have days where you don’t believe. But you have to keep your mind straight and focused on that aim.
Because if you don’t, the power of negativity is so strong, it can take you out quickly. That’s one of the things that happens. As we go forward in life, more opportunities are given to us and more things are required from us. That’s just how it is. I think many people don’t want to deal with all of the changes that will come from success.
That’s the mindset because right now wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, there’s a certain level of mental inertia. You’ll get to a certain place and you’ll stop. It’s not because you don’t have the ability. It’s because you haven’t adjusted your mindset for the next stage. That is really critical when you are trying to be successful. You have to take your mindset to the next level.
You have to constantly push and expand what you’re going to do and how you’re going to do it for yourself. I’ll give you a great example about mindset. For a long, long time I was a reseller. I loved it. I enjoyed it. It actually got me the opportunity to speak to you on these videos.
But, I moved on. That was a personal decision. Now, I’ve heard stuff that I’ve abandoned the resale community like we were married and that’s my Boo. Now wait a minute. Just because you can’t move on, why shouldn’t I move on? One thing about resellers is they become almost cult-like. The more successful you are, the deeper you get.
I’ll give you an example. There was a guy here in Atlanta named Dave. Dave was killing it. Fortunes changed and Dave didn’t adjust to the internet. Then he started to lose. At one point, Dave was strong. But he did not adapt. Eventually he lost it all because he did not improve his mindset. When you are successful, it becomes very hard for you to change your mindset. That’s what happened to Dave and he’s out of the game.
One thing I’ve learned about people who are overall successful is that it is very hard for these people to hate. The reason is when you are successful and happy, it is not worth your time to be a hater. Essentially, it is just a lack of happiness that creates a great deal of hate.
It’s all about mindset. It is very easy to get sucked into the mindset of hate. Because hate is seductive. It creates a lot of energy. Hate creates an abundance of energy that many people don’t know what to do with. I’ve seen it on YouTube. People get caught up in hate fests. It’s all about your mindset.
When you consume better mental food, you have better outcomes. Then a lot of the negative stuff can’t take root in you. There’s just no room for it. There’s no room for those seeds to be planted because you’re being a good manager of your mental environment.
That’s very, very important that you do that. Your mindset determines how you deal with happiness and setbacks and failure. That stuff is very important. Everyone is going to be unhappy at some point. Everyone’s going to fail at some point. It’s just going to happen. That’s just a snapshot or a moment. But some people will take a snapshot and turn it into a feature film.
Reduce your Facebook time at least by 90% unless it is business oriented. Also, stop listening to negative people. Don’t hang out with them. Focus. Take that time you were on Facebook and put it into successful endeavors. Do that for 90 days. Then get back to me and tell me how right I am.
If you want to see how a person is living, look at where they put their time. I’m an internet marketer, I put my time in YouTube and Facebook creating products. That’s what I do. The more time I invest there, the more lessons and feedback I get, which means the more freedom I have and the more money I make.
