YOU are in control! YOU are responsible!

Written by Noel Peebles


Do you ever think to yourself, "I can't do that?" Most likely, it is your present beliefs that may be causing you to doubt your own abilities. After all, repparttar only thing that can ever stop you from doing or getting anything is a thought.

∑ I'd better not try that.

∑ I don't have a chance to win this one.

∑ They'd probably turn me down anyway.

∑ I can't see it working.

∑ I doubt she'd go out with me.

∑ What if I call him and he says no?

I could list thousands of these tension building and confidence destroying instructions. Many of us wash these types of negative instructions through our brains every day. It's no wonder we are afraid to try new things.

We always lose when we expect to. Which is why we did. It's self-fulfilling. Expect failure and get failure. Which in turn breeds more expectation of failure.

If you want to change your situation andrepparttar 126290 results you are currently getting - you first have to change your beliefs. This means changing your mental conditioning to getrepparttar 126291 results you want.

If you set yourself up to expect success - you will achieve more success - and so breeding more expectations of success. It starts by telling ourselves that we can do it. It is about making things work rather than focusing on what we can't do and telling ourselves we can't. The basic concept is really that simple, but extremely powerful.

Not all your results will change instantly, but some will. I mean, it's not like a million dollars is going to appear out of thin air. But, if you really do want a million dollars, you can have it. However, firstly you have to believe that it is possible.

It is a bit like a farmer planting seeds; he doesn't expectrepparttar 126292 crop to pop out ofrepparttar 126293 groundrepparttar 126294 instant he waters it. He expects to nurture it and work at making his crop a reality. Nor does a woman who conceives a baby expect it to be born immediately (thank goodness for that), without some sacrifice or effort.

Are You In The Wrong Job? Ask Yourself These 7 Key Questions:

Written by Michael Spremulli


Have you ever stopped to ask yourself if you are inrepparttar wrong job? Too many times people go to school, get a job in their chosen field and end up spendingrepparttar 126289 bulk of their adult working life feeling miserable. Here are seven questions to get you thinking about how well-matched you are to your current job.

Do you look forward to Monday morning? I know that this may sound crazy, but hear me out. Of course every job has times when you wish you could be somewhere else. There is no such thing asrepparttar 126290 perfect job. Realize, however, that people who find their job fulfilling and rewarding look forward to beginning their workweek. This is not because they are crazy, itís because they become energized when working in an environment that is a good match for them. Do you find it easy to get along with coworkers? Whenever you get a team of people working together there is bound to be some type of conflict from time to time. The question then becomes, how often do you find yourself "locking horns" with your co-workers? If you find yourself fighting with team members on a regular basis, it may mean that you are working in an emotionally toxic environment, or your coworkers are not communicating effectively with you, or you are not effectively communicating with your coworkers, or a combination of all of these. Have you noticed that you are taking more personal and sick days than when you first started work? Are you burning up your sick and annual leave faster than you can accrue it? Think back to when you first started at your current job. How often did you take sick and annual leave compared to now? If you have noticed an increase, ask yourself why. You might be tempted to say that you are taking more time off now because you earn more or because of your seniority -- these are not valid reasons. Iím sure you know someone at your company who has been there for less time than you and has built up hundreds of hours of leave time. A potential ďred flagĒ is when you have an extremely limited amount of release time onrepparttar 126291 books. Are you performing tasks that you enjoy and come naturally to you? Are you a "people person" but your job has you locked in a cubicle analyzing stacks of data? Do you like to meticulously plan your work day, but find that you are constantly having to cast your plans intorepparttar 126292 wind and manage continual crises? These are just two examples of many potential situations where you might be in an environment that is a poor match forrepparttar 126293 way that you prefer to behave.
