How to earn less than $1 per hour (part 3 of 3)
This sexy beast is a self-driving Ferrari with a bleeding-edge GPS that’ll take you ANYWHERE you want to go in life.
The best part?
Here’s how it works…
Let’s say you want some icecream (hey, who doesn’t like icecream?).
You jump in your self-driving Ferrari and plug the icecream shop’s address into the GPS.
The Ferrari reverses itself out of the driveway and you relax back into your seat.
While the world goes by outside, you start to think about your ex.
The day before, you saw a photo of your ex on Facebook that pressed your bad buttons, and now you can’t get the image out of your head.
The Ferrari races down each street, careening around corners like Michael Schumacher on the racetrack, but you barely notice it, lost in thoughts about your ex.
Suddenly, the Ferrari stops and the GPS says “You have arrived at your destination.”
“Huh?”, you think.
Instead of the icecream shop, you’ve arrived at your ex’s apartment.
Then it hits you…
The salesman said it was new. That it listened to your thoughts, not the address you plugged in. That it took you wherever you wanted to go, but only if you focused on it intently in your mind.
That must have been it.
You may have plugged in the icecream shop’s address into the GPS, but you spent the entire drive thinking about your ex.
It might sound far-fetched, but this is how your brain works.
You don’t get what you say you want.
You get what you spend 90% of your time thinking about.
So if you say you want to scale your business, but you spend 90% of the day worrying about not having enough money, what do you think your internal heat-seeking mechanism is going to do?
It’ll take the “not enough money” idea as the goal and recreate those circumstances around you.
It’s that simple.
This is where the self-image comes in (from yesterday’s email).
Your self-image is the invisible target of your brain.
You can think positive all you want, and tell your friends how you’re going to do this or that or whatever, but if deep down, your self-image is poor and downtrodden, you’re going to continue creating a life that reflects “poor and downtrodden”.
In our story above, if you had an insecure self-image, you’d be more likely to get caught up worrying about your ex-girlfriend.
On the other hand, if you had a secure, powerful self-image, you probably would not have gotten stuck thinking about her. Instead, you would have spent the drive to the icecream shop thinking about what you DO want (like delicious, tasty icecream!).
In other words, your brain will take you directly to your self-image.
Shitty self-image = shitty results in life.
Amazing self-image = amazing results in life.
Therefore, it’s CRITICAL that you change your self-image.
#1 – Take time every day to review and remember all the times you kicked ass. Replay your positive memories. Appreciate all the times you did something awesome.
Every time you generate positive thoughts and images like these, you’ll reprogram your self-image for success… ever so slightly.
Do it enough, and eventually your self-image will shift completely from “loser” to “winner”.
#2 – Take time every day to project yourself into the future and see yourself at your best. Whatever you want, whether it’s money or respect or love or health, see yourself achieving that in your mind. Make it rich and vivid, like a HD movie at IMAX.
But don’t let that fool you.
Do this for 20 minutes every day and you will be astounded by the results.
And if you need help, schedule a Strategy Session here.
In your Strategy Session, I’ll help you get clear on what’s not working in your life right now, where you’d like to be, and what it’s going to take to get there.
If I think I can help you get there, by teaching you more advanced techniques and strategies for reprogramming your self-image, I’ll absolutely let you know and show you how.
If not, I’ll point you in the direction of someone else who can help you instead.
Either way, you’ll get a ton of value and clarity, and we’ll even have some fun.
