Is the man trying to keep you down…in business and life?
When I was younger, it was the normal thing to say, “the man is trying to keep my down”. Sometimes I said it because I thought it was funny at the time. I enjoy making people laugh. Other times, I said it because things were just not going my way.
I mean, I did everything right…and it did not work out. It had to be the man trying to keep me down. How else do you explain it?
At the time, I did not know who this mysterious man was, where he came from, or why he even existed. All I knew is that he was always around when things went bad. This man was not a friend of mine.
Today, I am older…I’d like to think I am wiser.
Do I still think the man is trying to hold me down?
But now I know who he is…
He is me!
When I don’t believe in myself. When I hold myself back. When I let limiting behaviors cloud my judgment.
I become the man trying to keep myself down.
When you don’t believe in yourself. When you hold yourself back. When you let limiting behaviors cloud your judgment.
You become the man trying to keep you down!
Take a look at the decisions you make in life and in business. Are you confident? Do you choose wisely or do you choose based on fear?
Are you playing to win or just trying not to lose?
What are your goals? Is one of your goals to be wealthy? Then are you making the same choices that a wealthy person would make? Do your choices and decisions lead you towards wealth?
Or are you making the choices a poor person would make? Are your decisions based on fear?
Is life kicking your butt or are you kicking life’s butt?
One of the best conclusions I ever made was when I realized that the man trying to hold me down was me.
Once you understand that the only person that can hold you back is you, then the world is yours if you want it. When nothing or no one is holding you back, you have no limits. You can achieve whatever you want.
If that is wealth, then go attain it!
How do you attain it? First, you have to learn how a millionaire thinks. They don’t think like you or me. They think differently and this is what I am learning.
I have studied this before when I read Think and Grow Rich. This was a great book. It helped me a lot, but I still have some limiting behaviors that I must conquer.
To help even more, I am currently reading Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. I haven’t finished this book yet. I’m over halfway and I can tell this is a great book also. Full of great information.
You can find both of these books (and many others) in my Recommended Reading section.
Many people say they want to change their lives but then when you ask them to do a simple task like read a book or two, all of a sudden, they change their minds. If you are committed to becoming wealthy, this is an easy task.
Once you have read these books, if you are ready to start a serious online business, grab a copy of this eBook. It is free and has a lot of great information about online business models.
I have just provided you with the tools to protect yourself from the man trying to keep you down. It’s your decision whether or not you use them.
