Change Your Mind; Change Your Life

According to Geoffrey James’ article in “Inc. Magazine”, adopting the following ten beliefs will change the course of your life, allowing you to be more successful.

  1. I always act with a purpose.
  2. I take responsibility for my results.
  3. I stretch myself past my limits daily.
  4. I don’t wait for perfection; instead, I act now.
  5. I learn more from my failures than my successes.
  6. I take my job seriously, but I do not take myself too seriously.
  7. I use rejection to renew my humility and sharpen my objectivity.
  8. I use both negative and positive feedback to keep on target.
  9. I am careful about what I put into my mind and body.
  10. I seek out people who are similarly motivated to improve themselves.

I found this article inspiring and plan to begin implementing this new internal “self talk” today.  It won’t be easy, self-doubt likes to creep in, along with all of the noise from nasty people who seem to find joy in pulling you down.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress and my successes.  I hope you’ll let me know about your successes too!
