You might not realize this, but many of the things you do so freely – saying 'yes' to things you should be saying 'no' to, acting in ways that are not congruent with your truth just so you could get the love and approval of those around you, staying in situations, places, and relationships that are toxic and unhealthy, etc., are nothing but ways in which you give your power away to forces outside of you. And because I know what a dangerous thing that is, I wanted to share with you a few ways in which you can take back your power and be true to yourself again.
So let me ask you this, how much control do you really have in your life?
So many people think that life is randomly happening to you and you don't have any control over it. One thing that I've learned is you absolutely have a lot of control. And that control comes from taking the time to to pay attention to what you think about.
"Because what you think about, you bring about."
And you know what, whatever you spend most of the time thinking about, is what you are going to get. Start taking control of those thoughts and that's where your power lies.
So if you keep thinking that life isn't fair to me, or the economy is so terrible and I got vacant buildings.. etc. etc. then you will get more of what you think about.
Instead, think a different way. A challenge for you..........
Practice thinking about what you want. First of all define what you really want. A lot of people have never sat down and really taken the time to figure out what they want.
I know I get myself in to stuff where I think I want something and half way through it and realize no, that's not what I wanted. And that will happen.
I remember when we first got into the real estate, I remember saying to my partner, "300 doors? why do you want 300 doors? To me, it sounded like too much work. And then things go so fast like with us, and one day we wake up and have over 500 doors.
But ultimately, if time freedom is important to you and you think about it a lot and you keep telling people about it. Things happen that you couldn't even have been able to dream up on your own. Because remember, the universe has your back.
If you're not getting what you want, change your thinking about it and then pay attention and then allow it to happen. For example, let's say that you want to earn an extra $10,000 this month. Then you start thinking about how do I do it? But instead think this way; why do you need to earn an extra $10,000 this month? Picture that in your mind. Don't think about the how. You don't need to know!
So its not always easy to think about what we really want since our mind is still diverting towards things that we don't want. But keep practicing, you'll get it.
