Most people talk about a glass being half empty or half full. To me, a glass is always full, even if it’s just a drop.
“Why?”, you might ask.
My answer is simple. ”Because that’s the mindset of success.”
How you look at your life determines what you get out of it.
Most people focus on what didn’t get done, what they didn’t get, or what didn’t go the way they wanted it.
If focuses your brain on a perceived failure or lack.
What if you could look at what you have accomplished as being enough? Would that create a positive ripple effect in your life?
I say, “Heck YES!”
When you celebrate what you’ve achieved, you have a sense of accomplishment and joy which in turn creates a magnetic attraction for more of that to come.
Essentially, you reduce your own resistance to success.
Think about prospecting.
Most people hate following up. They worry about rejection.
What if you set up a goal to call 15 prospects per day and you end up reaching out to only three? Is that a failure?
I say, “NO, it isn’t!”
You successfully called three people. Go ahead and celebrate!
Tell yourself, ”What an amazing day. I’ve just called three people. I LOVE it.”
Give yourself high-five. Jump. Scream. Kiss your dog. Eat chocolate.
Do whatever it takes to make your excitement “juicy.”
Say, “I’m proud for moving forward.”
As you rejoice in your accomplishment, you send a powerful signal to your brain that prospecting is not that bad. You see that you CAN do it.
In turn, your brain starts wondering: “She must really like this prospecting, if she’s made such a big deal of out these three calls.”
“Tomorrow, I’ll let her make four calls. Let’s see how she’s going to flip about that! Maybe, she’ll kiss the neighbor this time. He’s handsome…”
Essentially, you train you brain to LIKE the activity you resisted before and therefore allow yourself to do more of that in the future.
You start associating positive emotions and a sense of success with the activity you resented or struggled with before.
My advice to you is simple.
Give yourself credit for everything you’ve accomplished!
Pay attention to your success and to nothing else.
I don’t care what I didn’t accomplish this year. I only care about what I did.
It doesn’t mean there’s no room for improvement.
The reason I keep improving is because I constantly recognize and applaud myself for everything that I achieved, no matter how small or insignificant as compared to my bigger goals or dreams.
I don’t accelerate, amplify, and move forward in my business by looking at what didn’t get done.
I expand because I’m constantly celebrating, applauding, honoring, and reinforcing what I did get done so I can look with ease and joy into what else is possible for me.
I prime my brain for success.
The glass is always full, even if it’s only one drop.
Tomorrow, there will be another drop, and then I’ll add another.
And before you know it, the glass will be full-full.
