Thursday is usually the biggest day of the week! Just saying! Today, I am going to shake it up a little bit. I am still waiting for my hard copy of “The Happiness Advantage” to show up. With that being said, I am going to base my blog today off a quote that I read a couple days ago that has replayed in my mind over and over. “Capacity is a state of mind.” So let me ask you a few questions that will get the ball rolling:
- What do you think of yourself physically? Do you look and feel the way you want to? Do you walk around with confidence? I spend a lot of time on the treadmills at the gym these days, and while I am on there, I people watch. I am always so intrigued by a person that is willing to be at the gym at 6:00 am. As I check out the crowd, something always sticks out to me. The people that walk around with confidence, and with a so-called “hop in their step”, look better and probably feel better too. Why? Because they are confident in how they look. And they are there to get better.
- What value do you place on yourself when it comes to work? No matter what your job is, do you see the vision of it being a stepping stone to your next breakthrough? Or do you just focus on how bad it sucks to knock a door, or talk to an angry customer, or lay that next row of tile on some random person’s bathroom? One of my favorite quotes is
If you want to increase your net worth, increase your self-worth.
It doesn’t matter what your job is, it’s important. And if you will always treat it as that, your life will be so much more fulfilled because it will be filled with promotions and opportunities.
- When was the last time you increased your financial barometer? How long has it been sitting where it is today? I was asked the question yesterday how often my financial affirmations change. My response, “They are always changing.” Why? Because my vision gets bigger. I believe there is more that I can do. I start to think bigger and bigger. And guess what, my bank account always follows.
Remember, capacity is a state of mind. I have never been more convinced that we are all a product of our own thoughts. That we become what we think about and dream about all day long. If you want to achieve it, believe it first. Do you want to know why this life is so good? Because there is no one that stops us from being great but ourselves. Your habits become your circumstances. And the moment you realize that and start to take accountability for it, is the moment that your life will change forever.
Life is good, Cram
