To be successful, you have to win the battle of the mind. You have to take your thoughts and bend them to your will.
A couple weeks ago, here in St. Louis, there was a tweet sent out about a St. Louis Blues Hockey game. The guy meant to tweet “Blues ride Backes’ 5 goals to win game.” That was a reference to David Backes, one of the players. But his phone auto corrected it to Blues ROAR BACON. Well, the funny thing is this phrase picked up, hashtagged, went viral, and has now become a rally cry in St. Louis for Blues fans. Auto-correct does funny things.
It got Andy thinking: "Our thoughts shape who we are and what we do. Our negativities can be broken down into so many individual negative thoughts. A lot of times, those thoughts can just be expressed by SINGLE WORDS or phrases. We need to train ourselves to AUTO-CORRECT those words.
Andy Auto-Corrects "Obstacle" into OPPORTUNITY; "failure" into LESSON; and "lucky" into PRODUCTIVE.
Today Andy wants to issue a challenge: Every time you have a negative word pop into your head, CONSCIOUSLY AUTO-CORRECT it. Every time a negative thought enters your mind, WILLFULLY AUTO-CORRECT. Negative words or thoughts are just mental typos. Determine every day to Auto-Correct all negativity out of existence.
Every day there are people who don’t achieve the goals that they could achieve if they just acted. In almost every case, the reason they didn’t act was because THEY TALKED THEMSELVES OUT OF IT. They let the "little loser voice" inside them dictate the terms of their life - who they are & what they can accomplish.But successful people take specific steps to take control of their mental conversation - and their lives. In this episode, I tell you what they do to dominate.
"What if?" is a question I hear people asking all the time...people who are in the middle of their entrepreneurial journey...or people who are in the midst of trying to accomplish a big goal. The reality is, people who constantly ask themselves that question are mentally abusing themselves. They are subjecting themselves to doubt & uncertainty. Successful people, entrepreneurs or otherwise, are different. They ask entirely different questions and operate under a whole different set of expectations.
