3 Lies You Tell Yourself That Are Hijacking Your Success

Facebook Twitter Pinterest

frustratedSometimes the only things standing between you and success are a few lies.

In fact, it’s the lies we tell ourselves that most often keep us from our dreams. Maybe we’re afraid of success, maybe we don’t think we deserve it, or maybe we don’t think it’s possible. Whatever the reason, if you get rid of the lies, pretty soon you’ll watch your dreams turn into your reality.

Here are unquestionably the 3 worst lies you tell yourself that are hijacking your success:

1.“I don’t know where to start.”

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: nobody “knows” where to start. Steve Jobs didn’t have anybody telling him exactly which step to take first. Donald Trump didn’t drag his feet because he didn’t know which property to buy first.

Successful people stop telling themselves they don’t know where to start, and they make a decision. Have you ever heard “perfect is the enemy of good?” This is exactly what that’s talking about. If you wait until you have the perfect plan, you’ll miss hundreds of good plans that could have got you what you wanted.

If you want to see your dreams made real, you’ve got to stop telling yourself you don’t know where to start.

2. “I don’t have any money.”

Listen up: you don’t need money to become a millionaire. You don’t even need to be brilliant. Look at Richard Branson. He started Virgin Records as teenager, when he was flat broke. He’s now worth $4.9 billion. And here’s the kicker: he has dyslexia.

If a dyslexic teenager with no money can become a billionaire, then you can stop telling yourself that being broke is an excuse.

And faster than you ever thought possible, you won’t have to think twice about your expenses – you’ll have enough money to live the high life.

3. “I can’t do this on my own.”

Sometimes you hear about great mentors who change people’s lives, and then you look around and wonder where your mentor is. The sad fact is, not everyone finds one. But here’s the good news: people reach their dreams without mentors every day. Think about it: Whatever your goal, the very first person to reach that goal didn’t have a mentor. So you know it’s possible.

Here’s how to do it on your own:

Make Steve Jobs your mentor. Make Richard Branson your mentor. Hell, make Albert Einstein your mentor.

If you can figure out what they did to be successful, you’ll see your deepest desires come true faster than you thought possible.

Actually, success experts have recently uncovered some uncanny similarities in what makes people like Richard Branson successful…

It turns out, most millionaires, successful artists, and people living their dreams have one thing in common…

…and it’s not “hard work.”

They share a little-known secret about the brain.

How To Tear Down These 3 “Success Floodgates” To Flood Your Life With Success!

You need to open the floodgates for success to pour in.

You need to open the floodgates for success to pour in.

Do you realize how close you are to turning your dreams into your reality?

If you could see how close you are to success, you’d be kicking yourself that you haven’t just reached out to grab it yet.

The truth is, no matter how much you feel like a failure, success is literally waiting to flood your life. The only thing you have to do, is tear down the “Success Floodgates” holding it back.

Here’s 3 “Success Floodgates” holding back your dreams:

1. Making Excuses

If we choose someone successful to look at as an example, like Steve Jobs, we’ll see that he never made excuses. When things went wrong, he didn’t blame other people. He didn’t refuse to accept responsibility for his own mistakes. He didn’t try to justify his poor choices.

He didn’t make excuses because he understood that failure is going to happen. It’s not the end of the road – it’s one step on the road to success.

In fact, the next Success Floodgate you have to tear down is…

2. Fearing Failure

Like I already said, failure happens. But it’s not a dead end – it’s a step forward.

Too many people run into a tiny bit of failure, and they think they’re done forever. They give up immediately, never realizing how close they were to achieving their goals.

The problem is, they take failure personally. They think it means something’s wrong with them. But the truth is, failure is part of the journey to success.

That’s why it’s so important that you stop…

3. Beating Yourself Up

Think about it. Can you imagine Steve Jobs yelling at himself, saying that he’s dumb, or lazy, or any of the other million insults people tell themselves? Of course not!

Successful people don’t beat themselves up. They understand that taking your anger out on yourself only pushes your goals farther away. They still get upset, but they channel those emotions into constructive energy. They use that energy as jet fuel to reach their goals.

The truth about success is that you’re closer than you think. Sometimes all it takes is tearing down the floodgates, so you can let your dreams pour in.

But there’s an even easier way to turn your dreams into your reality, and it doesn’t require hard work, stress, or struggle…

You won’t believe the hidden connection that success experts recently discovered behind people like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, and even Albert Einstein.

Check out this free presentation on this new discovery that’s changing the way people look at success, taking “hard work” out of the equation:

Steps To Becoming A Strong Leader

Facebook Twitter Pinterest

Strong LeaderA leader is not born.
A leader is created.

The whole process starts inside the most dangerous place you'll ever encounter - your own mind.

How can you become a strong leader who:

  • inspires others
  • drives people toward excellence
  • holds people accountable
  • instills a sense of trust?

Learning what makes a great leader is your first step.


Here are five steps you take to become the leader you've always wanted to be:

1. Control yourself. Every great leader in history has had to become a master of self-discipline and willpower in order to stay focused on the big picture. If you don't have a goal or the drive to achieve it, you can't lead others to attain theirs.

* Follow through in everything you do. As challenging as it may be, you need to be disciplined enough to be where you need to be, when you need to be there, whether you want to or not. By being strong in your resolve and resisting temptation to give up, you are setting an example for others to live up to.

* Choose your emotional response to a situation carefully. Sometimes you'll need to practice the art of silencing your inner thoughts when they're not appropriate in order to set a positive example.

2. Project your goals. If the people you're leading don't completely understand the deeper meaning in their work, they won't share your vision or work ethic. Every step of the way, communicate with your team to make sure they're on the same wavelength and know what you expect of them.

* Get your team involved in the planning process and the implementation of your ideas. This gives everyone a greater sense of ownership toward the end result.

3. Praise highly and criticize constructively. The way you praise and criticize others can make all the difference in being able to lead effectively.

* Make sure you publicly praise the people who do excellent work for you. You'll give the person a sense of accomplishment and the drive to do even better.

* When someone does something wrong, offer constructive criticism and do it privately. Suggest solutions on how they can improve and take the time to answer any questions. They'll accept your input more willingly if they know it's done to help and not to harm.

4. Know your people. You can't truly lead a group of people unless you truly understand their hopes, dreams, struggles, pains, and goals. All the good intentions in the world mean nothing unless you have a true sense of the people you're working with.

* Talk to your team and get to know them. Getting to know each other on a personal level will strengthen the bond between you. They'll want to do better for you because you're more than just a "boss."

* Be their leader, first, and their friend second. You're their leader and that means that you have to make difficult decisions from time to time. These decisions cannot be affected by personal relationships.

5. Make the hard call. There are times when you have to bite the bullet and make some unpleasant decisions. Firing, demoting, and holding people accountable for their actions can be very hard at times. As a leader, it's your responsibility to handle these matters.

Regardless of where your leadership role takes you, believe that you can be a strong leader. Remember that in order to lead others, you must be disciplined yourself. After all, your actions will speak louder than anything you can say.

In order to gain the respect of others, strive to lead by example in every area of your life.

When you follow these simple guidelines, you'll be well on your way to becoming a true leader!
