“Mind your business”
“Here you go again,” says your spouse (or your best friend). “Don’t tell me you are trying another home business. Haven’t you learned from last one? Didn’t you lose enough money already? Maybe you are just not cut out for it. Why can’t you settle for a steady job like everyone else?”
In a split second of self-pity, you agree. The reasoning is logical. After all, you must have tried a dozen home businesses, everything from Amway to zero down real estate. Yet nothing seemed to work for you. Still, deep inside you yearn for more. You refuse to accept destiny 97% of population is running toward, retirement in poverty.
The Ultimate barrier
Excuses for failure are a dime a dozen. “My upline never supported me”, “the products were too expensive”, “the economy just isn’t good right now”. These and hundreds of others make up battle cry to justify failure. However true underlining cause of failure is held within mind of each individual who utters fore mentioned excuses.
In other words, ultimate barrier to success is your own mind. Your mind dictates whether you will succeed or fail in every undertaking in your life. If your mind is prepared and conditioned to accept wealth and success, nothing will stop you from attaining it. On other hand, if your mind is not prepared, no wealth building system in world, no matter how good it may be, will pan out for you.
A perfect example is a mail-order business. Millions have attempted them and failed. Yet some have started mail-order businesses from scratch, built business and within a few short years became millionaires.
Those “lucky” mail-order millionaires faced same problems and obstacles as all other millions who failed, however somehow they found a way to overcome. The key difference is beliefs that were held in mind. The belief that success was “theirs”. The belief that they would find answers to any situation drove them to continue when challenges came up.
Realize now that belief is a state of mind. In fact, it is a superior mental state that can be developed by anyone. Those who conquer in any business, utilize belief. Those who fail don’t. There in lies problem. One of biggest mistakes that most people make when they come up against failure is quit and begin a new venture. Instead of looking inside, most people look outside of themselves for answers. Huge mistake.
Anyone who tries a wealth building system and can’t make money must ask one question, “Is there anyone else making money doing this?” If answer is yes, don’t blame business. It is your thinking that is at fault. Jumping on to next system will not help. Only by changing your mind will you be able to change your success. Only by adjusting your belief will you be able to achieve what you desire. Andrew Carnegie, self-made multi-millionaire and one of first advocates of mind/money correlation said, “Take all my money and leave me penniless and within two years I will be a millionaire again. I have set my mind to attract wealth.”
