What would you do if you knew that you could change your results in an instant? Would you create more money? More fun? More freedom? The ideal relationship?
I’d like to share with you a story about John.
John, a real estate agent, listed 2 properties. Three months later John was quite frustrated that these two properties hadn’t moved quickly.
He had tried everything – lowering the prices, advertising, leaving the house open all weekend long, sprucing up the listing, etc.
The worse part of all was that no one was even showing them!
John became sullen. He had succumbed to buying into the negative stories about the real estate marketing being bad. He started to tell everyone he came across how bad the market is and talked non-stop about how his money source was drying up. He started to feel sick a lot and had no energy. It was almost as if John had given up somehow.
So I let John in on a little secret.
It isn’t a new secret to everyone, but it seemed to be new to John.
What you focus on expands. If you don’t like your results, you need to change your thoughts.
OK, many of you might think this is really simple. And John did too. He challenged me and said, literally, ‘That’s Crap! How can changing the way I think about something change my results? Are you saying that I can create my cold? Or that I created the house sales to slow down?’ Well, yes, sort of.
Here is the deal. There are laws that work all the time, no matter what, just like gravity. If you know how to work with the law, you will be tapped into the secret that will get you everything you dream about. If you don’t, you will continue to feel frustrated and overwhelmed with life. I’d like to share my insights on this secret with Six Steps To Create an Instant Shift in Your Results.
1. Change your thinking. This is where it all begins. Knowing that the law of focus means that what you think about will expand in your life, then if you aren’t getting the results you want, it would make sense to focus on what you DO want, right? Right.
2. Feel what it is like to live the outcome NOW. Sometimes thinking positively isn’t enough. That’s why affirmations alone don’t’ always work. In the ULTIMATE Business Breakthrough Intensive we conduct a process that helps you feel what its like to really live a life of ultimate success. That feeling sets off an electric vibration – almost like a magnet. Imagine all the juicy details of your life as if your desired outcome is already there!
3. Reverse engineer the vision. Reverse engineering literally means ‘take apart a finished product to see how it works.’ In all of my coaching programs I teach people how to see the result they want, then put themselves out there in their mind and look back over who they needed to be and what they needed to do to actually achieve it. It’s easier to see the steps this way.
4. Be in focused action. Take action to support feeling as if it’s already real. If it’s about attracting money, you must begin to make choices in your head as if you are already wealthy. I’m not saying spend money you don’t have. I’m saying you may need to create new habits, new to-do lists, or make new choices to be in alignment with being wealthy. If you keep doing what doesn’t work, you can’t energetically connect with the new results you want.
5. Get grateful. How often during the day do you focus on what you already have? Do you think, ‘I’m so lucky that I have my own business?’ or are you focused on everything you don’t have? Do you cherish the people in your life or do you ruminate about the partner who left you last? Being grateful is part of how you shift away from what you don’t want and turn on the attraction magnet.
6. Surround yourself with yes’s. This little trick is worth thousands. You must create an environment where focused ‘yes’ thoughts can occur. If you are a farmer who needs a crop of beautiful corn to grow would you plant it in cement? No, you would plant it in fertile soil and give it lots of water and sunshine. If you are planting new seeds of positive outcomes in your life but you continue to surround yourself with negative, limited thinking people and situations you will choke off the new growth. Or at a minimum, find a lot of weeds in your garden that stifle you.
Here is what I want you to do now.
Think of ONE THING that you would like different in your life right now. It could be money, new opportunities, time off, a new client lead source – whatever. Now, make a commitment to clearly define this new outcome in your life and when it will be true. Then every day for 14 days, follow the ‘shift’ process above. Now just get ready for amazing shifts in your life. You might even notice them today.
What ever happened to John?
Four hours after John put the ‘shift’ process into action; he called me and said, ‘I sold the condo today. And I’ve had 10 calls on the house and two potential offers coming into tonight.’ I asked John what changed and he said, ‘I did. I changed my attitude about these houses. I sat there and I saw myself selling those two houses today. And this time, something was different. I felt it!’
Now it’s your turn. Time to get your shift and achieve all your goals.
