One of the biggest things I have ever done to elevate my life has been to stop thinking the way I have always thought. I chose to think thoughts that at first felt completely alien to me…
But then as I actively implanted these new ways of thinking and being, I got different results.
I made more money…
I had better sex…
I became more intimate with Spirit…
Ultimately I get more and more and more!
And I see you, leader, trying so hard to get from where you are right now to where you want to be and you keep thinking using the same old thoughts as before and you wonder why nothing ever shifts for you!
It is because no matter how hard you try, you cannot elevate your circumstances by doing the same stuff and thinking the same thoughts you have always thought!
You just cannot.
It is literally impossible!
You have to deliberately elevate your thinking.
Read more books that challenge the way you look at life.
I used to be scared of reading books that were different from my belief system. As a Christian, it was considered anathema to read anything that did not quote scripture at you and that was my stance for a while there. And that stance kept me bound in thinking the way I had always thought.
I was either reading pointless fiction or I was reading some rehashed version of what I already thought and so, my thinking remained the same and I got the same results.
When I finally allowed myself to read more personal development and even venture into reading spiritual books from people who were not Christian, I expanded my thinking and got different results. And honey, different was good!
Oh so good!
Leader, choose new ways to think and be, by reading more books that challenge you.
2. Hang Out With New People
One of the hugest things that will hold you back will be the fact that you are the average of the 5 people you hang out with the most. So, look around you, see who you spend your time with and notice that you do not do much better than they do. That can be a good thing or not so great.
It is a choice, Leader!
Your family may seem like a fluke of nature but now, as an adult you get to choose your friends. You are so careful about it when it comes to your kids but not always so careful when it comes to you!
I buy my way into mastermind groups with people who think differently than me. I refuse to leave this to chance anymore because I know that the only way I am going to break through to the next level for me is to be around people who think that my next level is not that big a deal.
If all you hang out with are people who think earning $5k a month online is impossible, then honey, you will never get to $5k a month because it will feel too hard and too dissimilar from what you are used to. How much more $10k, $30k, $80k a month? No, you don’t have to dump all your friends but you do need to find ones that challenge your thinking as well. Do not hold back from paying your way into elevated friendships!
3. Cultivate a Close Relationship With Your Gut
In order for me to feel at ease with the new ways of thinking that I was implementing in my life, I needed to be sure it was right for me. I had already lived a passive life where others, whether pastor, parents, friends, whoever had been able to tell me what to think and I had gone along with that for too long.
So, when I realised that my thinking needed to be shifted, I needed to KNOW that it was he right thing for me.
How Did I do that?
I learnt how to commune with Spirit, with God, With my intuition. The idea, Leader, is not to be led astray by any weird and wonderful ideas that just may not actually be right for you. It is to have a way of checking yourself, of knowing that this new thought, new belief, new idea is right for you.
The whole elevation of thinking thing must be deliberate. And there are times when you need to trust your gut and you cannot do that when you have taken no time to develop your ability to hear your gut. This is why most ‘norms’ just go along with the status quo. They do not trust themselves and so anyone with enough confidence sounds good enough to follow.
We are leaders, we have to be more deliberate than that.
We must choose what thoughts and beliefs are allowed a space in our heads. And I personally do this by checking it with Spirit. You may call it intuition or your gut.
Do you know how?
