There are few days in the year where you really contemplate where you’ve been and where you want to go. The most important of these days is your birthday. I’m sure that when you were young you would wake up to the clamoring of cheers and that famous”Happy Birthday song”. As the years pass that song now is song by your children and then if you’re lucky enough your grandchildren. The song wishes you a successful day.
What goals or outcomes have you set for the coming year? Are they goals of success or just another year of the same old situation? On this day I have been truly blessed by getting wonderful messages my family and friends and then tonight giving a talk about negotiating with your brain for success.
Through the years, I have formulated a definite set or pattern of circumstances that I go through in order for my thoughts to be as positive as possible. It took a period of time to develop this type of discipline. I will tell you that the process was worth the work. Looking at my possibilities for the coming year I can truly tell you that the best is yet to come. I know that because my thoughts and my attitude are on the positive track and the results must follow. This is a law of the universe.
It does not have to be your birthday or special day to start changing your thinking process and expecting positive outcomes or goals-everyday should be your birthday-your best day.
Dangers of Success
Let me run a scenario for you. You work hard, and you find that you become truly successful financially. Do you, say” thank you” and I expect, with a good attitude and hard work this to continue. On the other hand you might say I’m successful now but “when will the bubble burst?” For the most part, people fear losing the success more than they enjoy the benefits.
Let me give you an illustration. This doctor opened up and maintained a very successful practice for a number of years. He worked hard at his craft and became financially successful. On the outside it would appear that the doctor had it all. On the inside, the doctor kept asking himself “when will this bubble burst?”
While taking a walk one day, the doctor noticed an annoying pain in his hip. At first he gave it no thought but as the pain persisted he decided to investigate the problem. He found out that his hip was totally degenerated and that he would most likely be unable to continue to practice. Now a large voice in the back of his head said “The bubble just burst.” That doctor was me and it has been a long time since I have been able to practice my craft for any length of time.
Your mind has the ability to conjure up positive or negative thoughts. If you keep those thoughts predominantly positive you will get predominantly positive results. The opposite of that is also true. So when success comes, and it will, start thinking that your bubble is getting bigger and better and is ever expanding.
