1. Change the way you think
“if you think you can or you can’t…you are right” – Henry Ford
It all starts with your perceptions, think possibilities, see possibilities. You will change what happens around you by changing how you think.
Think about this scenario:
A young man, Shawn, who dropped out of high school seven years ago, recently got laid off his job. He has no technical skills whatsoever, and has had difficulty getting jobs from time to time. He is tired of looking for jobs almost every 8 months but does not know what to do.
Shawn can sit down and think about all the frustrations in his life right now and the ones he endured in the past.
He could even take it further by looking for people in his life that could be held responsible for his current predicament.
This thought pattern may lead to bitterness and resentment among other things. One thing is certain, this thought pattern will not lead him out of his current predicament.
Alternatively, he can decide to think of the possibility of a bright future, not limited by his past pain or misfortune but shaped by his determination to succeed.
Taking responsibility for his life and determined to make a change, he can start engaging in activities that will add value to him. Map out a strategy to the future he desires and work hard towards it
Taking the right steps out of the problem starts by changing the way you think. Thinking more about what can be done with what you have rather than focus on what was done or not done in the past.
2. Change what you say
As simple as this sounds, it is very powerful. Our words create our reality. Instead of speaking defeating words that will dampen your morale, stand up and declare what you desire for your life! These positive declarations will energize you and beyond that shape your future.
What opportunities do you desire? Start creating those opportunities today by changing the way you think about the situation and what you say about it.
While these two tips are important, it does not stop there. Work hard to create the future you desire, persevere in the face of difficulty and watch your dream come true.
