Everything that you’ve ever achieved, and want to accomplish comes from you – your mind.
You set the limits and expectations for what you want in life, which is why I mentioned in the previous article, that the first step to breaking free from your limitations, is to learn how to control and change your perception of your current situation.
With this in mind, you can now actively take charge of your circumstances to build and create new opportunities.
So how do you begin?
Think of being at the beach, where you can see the tides coming in. When the tide is against you, it feels like an uphill battle. But when the tide is with you, like when you’re surfing, suddenly there’s this invisible force – a momentum that pushes you along and you’re able to ride the waves smoothly, like how that momentum pushes you towards your goal.
Next, you also need to see things in terms of Trends
Do you believe that a big change requires some sort of big, dramatic decision?
Well that’s not always the case…
It’s a series of trends. And a trend is a direction of change – it’s always moving forward.
So the secret to turning the tides to your favor, is to control your trends.
But a trend doesn’t start with your actions.
Like your limitations, it starts from your perspective – how you see the thing you’re trying to change. So once you change your perspective, believe it or not, you’ve already started creating a new trend.
You’ll start doing things differently, and soon enough it’ll become automatic. Slowly at first, but over time, these will build up into a completely new you in that part of your life.
So since trends are realized over time, this means that it’s important to start now, because big change is like a snowball. It accumulates from lots of consistent actions.
The upside to viewing change in terms of trends, is that you can start enjoying the change immediately. And the change doesn’t stop, as long as the trend keeps building up. It’ll continue to grow and get bigger and bigger…
The biggest difference between those who experience breakthroughs and those who don’t, is that the ones who see breakthroughs go through a total shift in mindset. They realize a need to see things differently, and as a result, they’re able to act differently which leads to successful outcomes.
Once you’ve experienced that shift in perspective, you’re halfway through the journey of breaking free from your current situation.
