One thing I learned from wealthy successful people is to have a victor mentality. If we’re walking around with a defeated mindset we are sure to lose.
I know it’s really easy to give up in defeat. Lord knows I’ve done that countless times, but no more. I’m not giving up this time. Opposition isn’t always a sign to quit, that is often a reason to persevere.
I’ve spent a lot of time in the past few months, or years, renewing my mind. I had a defeated mindset in the past, but I’m moving forward not backward.
I’m reading a book called Think And Grow Rich. I’m finding it very helpful and inspiring. I recommend it.
If I’m going to follow someones advice I want to follow it from someone who’s been where I want to go.
I heard this analogy once from a pastor I like listening to, it was about eagles and chickens. I don’t remember everything he said, but the gist of it is this; Chickens don’t get anywhere in life because they are either afraid to, or just don’t want to do what’s required of them to be where they want to be. Eagles are content with what they have in life, but they don’t want to stay where they’re at. They’re not satisfied. They’ll do what it takes to learn, grow and change to get to where they want to be.
I don’t know about you, but I want to be an eagle. And I want to follow the leadership of eagles.
I don’t want to be tomorrow, where I am today.
