Have you ever thought that all it takes to change your life would be a simple shift in perspective? I have been listening to Peter Diamandis (author of Abundance), and when asked if he is a glass half-full or half-empty kind of person, he replied, more like a glass overflowing! From his perspective, life is abundant in so many ways, if you look at things in a different way.
Gratitude Tip: When you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change – to paraphrase Dr. Wayne Dyer. Your reality is a product of your own personal perspective and the wonderful thing about this is that you can change it any time. A daily gratitude practice can help with this, as you are more likely to see what to be grateful for in any given situation, rather than seeking out the negative or things to complain about.
I had lunch with an old friend yesterday and we were talking about business and the economy. And in my opinion, I believe the economy is doing well and that business is growing (which in our business is the truth). He said to me that I am the first person he knows who believes that the economy is good right now. I learned from Jim Rohn that the economy will not determine your success, it’s all about your attitude and perspective. There will always be times of expansion followed by times of recession, that is the cycle of the economy. Your own personal economy is not dependent on what the rest of the economy looks like. Thankfully, our profession tends to grow during times of recession because people are looking for alternative ways to create income and since the barrier to entry is quite low in direct sales, more people are attracted to it during lean times.
Instead of focusing on the economy, focus on how you can bring value to the marketplace. The more value you bring, the more money flows into your business. It’s a simple equation that works every time. Shift your perspective to one of abundance and having more than enough, and you’ll start to see that the universe responds in kind. God is infinite and unlimited, which means there is never a lack of anything in our world – it’s merely our perception that makes it real.
