Is Your Thinking Helping You Succeed?
The first time Shaqir Hussyin made a million dollars, he thought it was all thanks to luck.
After building six businesses each worth over a million dollars, he became aware of what was really responsible for his success.
He became aware that it was his thinking patterns that had swept him to success six times.
THE CYCLE OF THOUGHTS, ACTIONS AND RESULTS
Your thoughts and internal belief patterns drive the actions you take. Your actions, of course, determine your results. Then, your results also drive your future thoughts, and the cycle continues.
For example, if you believe you’re not smart enough to succeed in business, or you don’t have enough money, or you’re too old – what actions are you going to take towards your success? Little to none. What results will you get? Little to none.
Your lack of results is then only going to reinforce your belief that you’re not capable of success, and the cycle continues.
On the other hand, if you believe that everything you touch turns to gold, you’re going to be very motivated to take the actions towards success. Because of those actions, you’re going to get results. In the same way, your results will only strengthen your belief about your ability to succeed.
This is why entrepreneurs like Shaqir jump from success to success to success.
HOW TO BREAK OUT OF THE WRONG CYCLE
If you’re reading this, you’re probably not happy with your results. Like it or not, that’s going to do damage to your thinking patterns and beliefs, and you’ll be cycling towards “learned helplessness”.
Thoughts are difficult to control, but actions are not so difficult to take control. The way to break out of the cycle of negative belief is to take control of your actions.
Become a producer, not a consumer. Spend more time writing emails than reading emails. It will be hard at first to do these things in spite of your negative beliefs and thoughts, but the actions will slowly improve your results, which will slowly replace those negative thoughts with positive ones.
Start creating more positive thoughts as well. Capture every small win that you encounter. Coming to a live event is a win. Learning one new thing is a win.
Slowly but surely, you’ll get that cycle moving in the opposite direction.
