From Where You Are, To Where You Want to Be
Unless you are very spiritual or content with your current situation, I’m guessing there is some way that your ‘reality’ could be improved. Maybe you would like a different house, a car, a holiday, more cash in the bank or even just less hours in the office. Whatever it is, I’m sure there is something you would change if you could. A few years ago I wanted to leave the UK and live in another country. The steps I took allowed this to happen. Not long after that, I wanted to quit my job and work for myself full-time. The steps I took allowed this to happen. Right now I want to give my brother a full-time income so he doesn’t have to work. The steps I’m taking will allow this to happen. Now I’m going to share these steps with you. Last week myself and Bud launched Reality Switch to a lot of praise. I’m very surprised and pleased with selling our 50 bonus copies within 2 hours of launch. Based on this, I know that topic of changing your life situation is obviously something that a lot of people care about. Therefore, I’m going to share some of my core tips to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be. You could think of this as a ‘mini reality switch’ and shares some of our foundation advice.
Rid Your Limiting BeliefsWe cover this section in-depth in the eBook and give many different examples of how social feedback and limiting beliefs can become a huge hindrance to your success. Limiting beliefs can come in many forms such as:
- Struggling at something once and believing you’re a failure
- Thinking your background is holding you back from success
- Believing that “good things don’t happen to people like me”
Have a Clear View Of What You WantIf you’re not perfectly clear about what you want, how can you expect to a) stay on the right path to achieving it or b) even know when you have ‘arrived’ at your destination. Every single time I have started projects that were slow to flourish or simply never took off was because I never clearly defined what I wanted for (and from) them. Despite only being 14 years old and unable to afford an education, William Kamkwamba still knew what he wanted. In his small village in Malawi he vowed to help fellow residents be provided with electricity and running water. Armed with nothing more than a book from the library in a language he couldn’t read and spare tractor parts, he set to work on his project. And he succeeded. William was able to supply running water to many homes and even powered four lightbulbs for his home. Electricity is a luxury that only 2% of people in Malawi have and now the poorest people in the country were enjoying it. This young man knew what he wanted and didn’t let anything else get in his way. Can you do the same? Do you want to start a business? Build a website? Quit your job? Have more time for your family? Whatever it is that you want, be clear about it.
Find Someone on The Same JourneyOne of the best ways to not only rid your limiting beliefs but also help you on the path of success is to simply find someone else on the same journey. Or, even better, you could try and find someone who has already done what you want to do. The internet is a great place to start. Finding people on the same path has multiple benefits such as:
- Showing you it is possible to do what you want to do
- Helps you map out a plan of action
- Gives you support and faith when times are tough
