Who’s ready to get a little bit better? Because that’s what we’re about to do on a mastermind call! Recently, a conversation evolved around this particular question: who do I have to be in order to have what I want, who do I have to be in order to fulfill my destiny, to create the life of my dreams? I fully, one hundred percent, believe that you can have it all. In fact, I believe God wants you to have it all. I believe that you can be blessed to be a blessing, and if you want to serve other people. He really wants you to have it also, but there is still that question: who do we have to be, in order, to have what we desire in our lives?
Let me attempt to answer that question. I mean, that’s a pretty big, pretty big question, but let me give you four things.
If you want to have that kind of life, that one you’ve envisioned, you have to be unshakably focused on the life that you’re creating. You cannot be focused on what hasn’t happened yet. You can’t be focused on the mistakes that you’ve created. You can’t be focused on what hasn’t occurred.
You’ve got to be laser focused on the future that you are creating successful people. People who have created that life, that they dreamt of, they are looking into the future. They’re not living in the past. So if you haven’t stepped into that life yet, you might want to ask yourself, where is my focus? Wherever focus goes, energy flows. If you’re focusing on the past, your energy flows into the past. If your focus is on right now, here and now, which I want you to be fully present. Enjoy the moment.
But if the present is where you’re at all the time, you’re not going to be able to manifest to create the future. So wherever your focus goes, your energy is going to flow. What if you got laser like flow focused on that life that you’re creating?
- Be a Person that Keeps Promises to Yourself
You need to be a person that keeps promises to himself to yourself. You need to be a person that when you make a decision, have certainty when you say it, lik I think I heard Tony Robbins say.
Everybody wants the breakthrough, a true decision is the break for that life that I miss manifesting out there. If you are a person who keeps promises to yourself, when you make a decision, a firm decision that will become the manifestation of your dreams. When you make a decision and you say, you know what, I am committing to become a person of discipline. I am committing to become a master of finance. I’m committing to becoming a millionaire. I’m committing to serving a million people. I’m committing whatever it is. If you truly make a decision, a commitment, then it’s as good as done.
If you can’t keep promises to yourself, if you keep saying, I’m going to go to bed at 10 and you go to bed at 11 or 12, you keep saying, that isn’t happening. If you keep saying, I’m not going to eat any more Cheetos. And yet you got that orange stuff on your fingers because you are still eating those Cheetos. You need to become a person that can keep promises to yourself. If you need help on doing that, get around other people who are achieving greatness, because if they’re achieving greatness, they have learned the secret of how to keep promises to themselves. That’s who you need to be to manifest that life that you desire.
- Be a Person who Helps other People Consistently
You need to be a person that helps other people consistently. Some of you have seen my other videos and I might sound like a little broken record on this, but that is okay. Zig Ziglar, the life mantra for me: You can have everything in life you want. If you just help enough other people get what they want.
Jesus in the Bible, he said the greatest among you will be servants. This idea of serving yourself into greatness. It is a principle of the universe. It has been around for all eternity, that if you serve people, you begin to step into a different life, a better life because you didn’t put yourself first, but you put other people first. The more people you serve, the more problems you solve, the more money you will make, the more people you serve, and so on. Never get into the place where it’s all about you. If you’ve been trying to manifest that dream life that you’ve been desiring, but you’ve only been looking here, looking internal, looking internal me, me, me, my, my mind.
You’ve been making money to spend money. Stop. You need to begin to look at who can I serve better than anybody else? What problems can I solve that other people are having? And when you begin to add that value, all of a sudden things will begin moving and shifting and you will begin to say, Oh my God, this is kind of a life, but I’ve been wanting, this is what I’ve been desired because you put other people before yourself and you made it a habit to serve other people consistently.
- Be Committed to Growing Every Day
Simple as that, you have to be committed to growing every day. Great book by a psychologist, Carol Dweck called Mindset, she talks about two mindsets that everyone has… one or the other. You either have a growth mindset or a fixed mindset.
A fixed mindset says I am what I am and that’s how I’m always going to be. If I suck at math, I’m always going to suck at math. I’ll never be good at math because that’s the way it is. But the growth mindset says I can do whatever I put my mind to. If I can learn it, I can master it. I can achieve greatness. If I’m not good at math, I’ll become good at math. I’ll become the greatest at math. Because a growth mindset says, you can do anything. You can achieve anything. So you have to establish as a foundation of your life, a growth mindset that says I am going to grow every day.
Furthermore, you should establish the habit of learning. Like if you do N.E.T. (no extra time); reading books and listening to audiobooks and podcasts and all that kind of stuff, you need to establish a habit of learning that every single day. Every single day, I’m learning something. Every single day I grow, I get better. I’m going to become the best version of myself.
And guess what? The practice, the work, it never stops because we’re never going to attain that place. We’re always going to be in the process of growing and becoming better. So who do you have to be in order to have the life you want? You have to be a person to focus. You have to be a person that keeps promises to yourself.
You have to be a person that helps other people consistently, and you must be a person that is committed to growing every single day. It is not magic, but if you do those things you can achieve greatness. It’s not going to happen instantly. There’s no easy button here, but if you do that work sooner or later, you’re going to begin to step into the life that you’ve always desired to live. You can have it all.
It’s time for you to go out there and give your greatness to the world, because somebody needs what’s on the inside of you. Don’t hold it back, go out there and give it away.
