Have you ever felt frustrated with your business? Have you ever thought, “What am I supposed to do to make this better? To make more money? To have more freedom?” Well, my friend, I have the answer for you. It is a tried and true solution, proven over more than two decades in my own life — what you focus on is what you get.
I’ve often been asked over the years, “How did you get so wealthy and successful?” I have avoided writing about this in the past because I didn’t want to seem like I was bragging or full of myself. The truth is I have spent 21 years studying, running, coaching, and owning my own businesses, and I have become very good at it. I have also been studying mindset, marketing, financials, leadership, and WEALTH.
My businesses are profitable, my employees are happy and high-performing, and once set up properly, they don’t require much effort or time from me — unless I WANT to be there doing the work. I am only 38 years old and I LOVE working with my teams, so I CHOOSE to spend time in my businesses. However, I never work more than four days a week, I take a lot of time off, I take NO meetings before 11am, and I make sure to build my life to include things that make me very happy, and support causes that make a huge difference for kids who need the help. And my businesses still kick major butt!
Businesses are the BEST way to build wealth. Well-run and profitable businesses are money-making-machines! You just have to learn the three pillars: marketing, leadership, and business financials mastery (PS — TMH Business Coaching teaches all of this!).
You can have this kind of business. There is ONE KEY that above all others will determine your success — that key is FOCUS. What you focus on determines what you will achieve. It determines how successful and happy your relationships will be, how much your team looks up to you and achieves the goals you set with them, how profitable your businesses are, and how positive your life will be.
CONTROLLING YOUR FOCUS IS THE SECRET TO HEALTH, WEALTH, FREEDOM, and ANYTHING ELSE you want in your life. I have been proving this beyond a shadow of a doubt for the past 21 years.
Here’s a video on how to change what you focus on.
It’s time for you to ask yourself, “How important are my dreams and goals?”
If the answer is “VERY IMPORTANT” I would ask you to write down WHY they are very important. Chances are, achieving your goals will help you, the people you love, and many others in the world FEEL BETTER. FEEL GOOD. FEEL HAPPY. When it comes down to it, that is all anyone is trying to do — avoid pain and achieve pleasure.
Once you can accept this — and, take my word for it, it’s true — you will have a life that is more successful and full of greatness than you ever imagined. CONTROLLING YOUR FOCUS CREATES YOUR FUTURE.
Our flawed human brains automatically look for what’s wrong in life. They look for danger. They were designed to keep us safe! But the truth is, they’re not helping us anymore; they’re mostly hurting us by focusing on NEGATIVE things instead of POSITIVE things and POSSIBILITIES.
This is the most important thing you will ever learn; please, write it down: you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything you want! You only need to control your focus: focus on things you DO WANT, focus on things you ARE GRATEFUL FOR, focus on GOALS, focus on what your team is DOING WELL, focus on ANYTHING GOOD in your life!!! MORE GREAT CIRCUMSTANCES & OPPORTUNITIES will begin presenting themselves to you immediately. I promise you. I am proof of this.
The key to getting what you want is to focus on the things you want, focus on believing that you can achieve those things, and then looking for the GOOD, the POSITIVE and the PEOPLE who will stay positive with you. The “average” person is very negative and talks about things that do not make you feel good. Feeling good is a huge part of attracting success. Trust me, I have been proving this for 21 years as I transformed my life from CRAP to AMAZING.
Try this this week — look for anything and everything GOOD and GREAT in your business, your team, your clients, your life, your marriage, your pets, your health — ANYTHING GOOD. Once you start focusing on the good, you will start to see everything change for the better.
You may think this seems too simple; I’m not saying it’s easy to stop thinking about the bad in the world, but it is easy to choose to think about the good, which pushes the bad out.
Start writing lists every morning.
Start looking for good in EVERY PERSON.
Start looking for things to congratulate your team on.
Start looking for things that are GREAT about your business!
Let me know when you start to notice the magic: your relationships, your business and your life will “magically” transform as you do this. Do it consistently. Do it daily. And LET ME KNOW how awesome things are going!
Have the best week ever — AND LOOK FOR THE GOOD!!!!
