Learning how to “trick yourself” into successful thinking and habits is an art form and is non stop.
You have to constantly be thinking of how to get yourself back into the “zone” as fast and as often as possible.
Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that the road to success is a very bumpy road. Most people that have never tried to run a business will tell you just the opposite. (Because they’ve never tried – they have this delusional view of success that successful people are “lucky” or have a “gift’).
When the reality is that in almost every case, the road to success is VERY TOUGH, the BEST just learn to never give up and persevere.
One great “mind hack” that I learned a few years ago was this…
Picture your life as a movie and that you are the hero of your own movie.
We’ve all seen the hero in the movie or read the book where in the end…the hero wins!
The hero overcomes the worst of situations or the most challenging circumstances. The villain is trying to outwit them or crush their soul in some way. But the hero finds the strength to persevere, to save the day, or to WIN!
BE THE HERO OF YOUR LIFE!!
If the cameras were rolling and they were telling the story of your life – do you want to be the hero or do you want to just give up?
The hero never gives up.
The hero never gives in.
The hero never throws in the towel.
The hero never walks away and say “I can’t save the day today.”
The hero does what needs to be done.
BE THE HERO!!
When times are tough and you’re about to give up….ask yourself “What would the hero do?”
