We often think of pain as bad.
Whether you’re going through a breakup, getting let go from a job, or making a big move, the experience is uncomfortable.
But you need that feeling to truly make changes in your life. It’s how you can adopt new thought patterns and let go of old habits.
Think back on your own challenging experiences and how it affected your outlook.
You are the person you are today because something made you want to rise above mediocrity.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the mindset of abundance and the power of pain with the founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center: Michael Beckwith.
The Abundance Mindset
We can blame our circumstances on our upbringing, on our partners, even on the government.
But the truth is, you’ve signed up for your life experience. Everything happening in your life is a direct response to your actions.
You have to let go of the belief systems that are holding you back.
They might have served you in the past, but they are keeping you where you are.
For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Lisa Nichols where she shared how she developed an abundance mindset that took her from being a single mom on welfare to a millionaire entrepreneur.
Lisa Nichols is one of the world’s most-requested motivational speakers, is the best-selling author of seven books, and is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Motivating the Masses, Inc.
Changing the way we look at the world can be scary and painful. But it will make the difference between accomplishing your dreams or not.
It’s time to give blood, sweat, and tears.
Learn how to develop an abundance mindset no matter how uncomfortable it makes you in Episode 747.
Jay Shetty: Small Changes for Lasting Results
We are constantly trying to be what we’re not.
We’re trying to look like someone else, perform like someone else, or spend our time in ways that make other people happy.
This is an exhausting way to live.
Like Einstein says, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
You are the most powerful when you’re tapped into what makes you unique.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I’m sharing a Summit of Greatness presentation from a former monk and master storyteller: Jay Shetty.
Defining Masculinity and Its Power with Jason Wilson
So many men are hurting, and then hurting others.
People don’t want to hear that.
But men feel like they’re emotional prisoners.
They are committing suicide at much higher rates. They are the ones performing mass shootings. They are reacting in violence.
We have to allow men ways to process their past and to express their emotions in order to become the people they are meant to be.
It’s not important to “be a man,” it’s important to be human.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the definition of masculinity with a man whose mission is to mentor boys: Jason Wilson.
How to Find a Business You Love
You have to give yourself permission to follow your dreams.
You might think, “People like me don’t don’t do that,” “I’m not ready,” or “There’s no way for e to succeed.”
But no one is going to tell you that you can. You have to know that for yourself.
It’s so important.
Your belief in yourself is the difference between success and failure.
That’s why, for this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with the creator of Fubu, Daymond John, where he shared how he realized that he could be a fashion designer.
Daymond John is the star of one of my favorite shows, Shark Tank, and is a bestselling author with a new book called The Power of Broke. He’s a self-made multimillionaire with over $4 billion in global product sales.
Daymond used to think that clothing was designed by old people in Italy who wore measuring tape around their neck. It wasn’t until he saw Karl Kani’s line that he realized that he could do it, too.
Do you have self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back from pursuing your dreams?
