There is ONE and ONLY ONE REASON for failure in any business venture: a losing Self-Image.
There is ONE and ONLY ONE REASON for success in any business venture: a powerful, winning Self-Image.
Your Self-Image is your most valuable possession. It is your identity (ID), which you carry with you wherever you go. It determines who and what you are, what you can or cannot BE, what you can or cannot achieve, what you can or cannot have, It determines how healthy you are, how successful you are, how much money you have, what kind of relationships you can or cannot have. Your Self-Image is made up of all the beliefs, values and rules you have about yourself, the world and everyone and everything in it. These beliefs, values and rules you hold automatically determine your attitudes and behaviors. Your outer world is simply the "out-picturing" of your 'hidden' Self-image.
With a winning Self-Image everything becomes easy. The most difficult goals are achieved. With an inadequate, loser Self-Image, the simplest and easiest of goals turns into a failure.
With a winning Self-Image just about everything becomes possible. With a negative, loser Self-Image everything turns into failure and disappointment.
Unfortunately, all those limiting, destructive, restricting beliefs, values and rules (and their resulting attitudes and behaviors) are stored very deep in the recesses of your own Subconscious mind and out of your conscious awareness.
Looking at and analyzing his/her hidden Self-Image must be the FIRST thing everyone does before embarking into any business venture - no matter what type of business it is.
Most people FAIL miserably because they never look at the their Self-Images. Most never know such a thing exists or believe it has nothing to do with their success or failure.
The mistake most people make is to attempt to be successful money-makers, become money magnets, make money fast, get rich, be millionaires or multimillionaires and have lots of money in the bank BEFORE looking at the Self-Image that is going to achieve all those goals. They JUMP before they LOOK!
Most people simply start buying money making programs to make money at home, make money on eBay, work at home, make money online, make money with a website, make money on real estate or investing in the stock market or commodities. These people should NOT blame those programs for their failures. They never even think about asking themselves some basic questions such as "Do I really believe I am going to succeed?", "Do I have what it takes so win?", "Is it going to be easy and fun or really hard and complicated for ME?"". This is simply one way to look at their hidden Self-Images, without using that name.
Do you believe your Self-Image is adequate enough to allow you to achieve all your financial goals? How do you know that since you CANNOT SEE your Self-Image?
Beliefs such as "I am a success". "I am a winner", "It is real easy for me to make money". "I am a money magnet" and similar positive beliefs are NOT the ones keeping you from having all the money you want.
Useless beliefs such "I am a loser", "I am a failure", "I am not good at making money", "We can never afford it", "It is so hard for me to make money", "Life is hard", "Making money is a constant struggle for me", "The more I try, the less money I have" are the culprits of your failure achieving your financial goals.
And how about "Money is not that important", "I'd rather be honest than rich", "There are more important things than money"? These are known as 'values'. And if you indulge in any of those thoughts, you can be certain that you place very little priority on making money. Other things are more important to you that money. With those values you will NEVER make the money you desire. With those values you will never be motivated enough to create that burning desire and invincible spirit that will not rest until victory is achieved. Just the opposite. You will automatically do everything to continue in the struggle you are experiencing right now.
If you have those 'useless' beliefs and values, you will constantly sabotage yourself and subconsciously do anything to AVOID taking the necessary steps in the direction of making more money.
You can buy all the programs to make money online, make money from home, make money on eBay, open your own business. You can buy the most famous investment program or real estate courses where people a lots less competent than you are winning and making money. You can study all you want about making money in the stock market or commodities. And maybe you are one of those people who already spent lots of money and energy on those programs only to find out that NOTHING seems to work for you!
But UNLESS and UNTIL you identify and eliminate those 'useless' beliefs and values that are negative, destructive and which LIMIT your ability to attract and make the amounts of money you desire . . . .unless you change your inadequate, loser Self-Image . . . NOTHING WILL WORK FOR YOU!
It is not enough for you to become aware that you do not give high enough value to money, that you believe it is real difficult for you to make money, that you believe that it is better to give than receive and/or you believe you will never be rich. Or any other type of limiting, destructive beliefs or values.
THEY MUST BE ELIMINATED COMPLETELY from your mind and your thinking!
Most books, courses and seminars do not show you ways to eliminate/erase all those limiting beliefs and values, attitudes and behaviors that are making you a REPELLENT to money -- and your life a living hell!
As long as these limiting, destructive beliefs and values stay in your Subconscious mind, no amount of positive thinking will help. You will continue having struggles with money. You will continue having a hard time making enough money to survive. All the actions you take will be exactly the ones needed for you to FAIL again and again.
YOU will not win and will not make money. NOT until you remove all those BLOCKS from your Subconscious mind and 'imprint' the right new beliefs, values and rules - which will automatically cause you to have the 'right' winning attitudes and behaviors, and attract the right people, situations, conditions and circumstances. Change your Self-Image or ANYTHING ELSE WILL FAIL.
It is NO fun to lose. It is NO fun to fail. It is painful to lose. It is PAINFUL to fail. It is very PAINFUL being considered a LOSER by the people in your life.
And it is even MORE PAINFUL to have to come up with all sort of excuses to explain to your family members and friends why you are not succeeding - and try to explain it in such a way as to avoid being considered a LOSER by them.
And, in spite of all your effort to hide it, you KNOW they all see you as a big LOSER! They may not say anything, they may even agree with you. But, in their minds they all think you are a BIG LOSER! And that is incredibly PAINFUL.
You can continue experiencing that deep, hurtful PAIN of destroyed expectations and unfulfilled dreams, and continue suffering and experiencing an ever increasing level of frustration, disappointment, failure and PAIN in your life.
Or, you can end it all by learning HOW TO get rid of all your negative, limiting beliefs, re-build your Self-Image into a powerful one, make you supremely self-confident, make you think, believe and behave like the multimillionaires and billionaires, and give you all the tools to achieve the success and financial wealth you always dreamed about.
Once you make the necessary changes in your Self-Image, you will be able to clearly see the EXACT type of business BEST suited for you (make money online, at ebay, investing, real estate, you name it!). And it will be easy and even fun to take all the steps necessary to FINALLY succeed.
You do not need to settle for less when you can have just everything you always wanted.
Be a money magnet: Make money fast, get rich and be a millionaire the easy and fun way - using your mind!
YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY. Right now, you seem to be creating a very PAINFUL reality. You can continue to suffer if you want to. I doubt this is your choice, though.
Therefore, when you get to that point where you sincerely say to yourself "THAT'S ENOUGH", I HAD IT", and you are ready to stop the PAIN of losing and failing, and start having FUN and SUCCESS, learn HOW
TO change your Self-Image and HOW TO DOWNLOAD into your own mind the winning Self-Image of the millionaires, multimillionaires and billionaires.
Once you DOWNLOAD it into your own mind, you will start believing like them, thinking like them, behaving like them -- and consequently achieving similar results practically 'automatically'.
The ONE thing that is keeping you from learning and using the tools and techniques to be a millionaire is your inadequate Self-Image, the FIRST thing you must change if you want to succeed.
