For the past 5 years, I’ve coached some astronomically successful salespeople in the solar business. These individuals can go to any neighborhood and within a year be making $500,000 or more in commissions, just by selling solar energy. Their success is even more impressive when you consider that 99% of their peers in the field, quit or struggle to make a living. These super successes come from different backgrounds, but all have one thing in common; they have won the battle of their brain. They control their thinking, their thinking doesn’t control them. Long hours, constant rejection and inevitable disappointments meant nothing to them. They were singularly focused, always confident, never deterred, and are masters of conscious thinking.
If you are not attracting what you desire, the following techniques to win the battle over your brain will transform you. Your current circumstances are perfect feedback, which tell you exactly how you are thinking and how to fix it. You just need to be aware of it.
This article will discuss the importance of thought, followed by three transformative thinking principles:
- Limiting and advancing self-talk
- Changing disempowering questions into empowering questions
- Creating a new context for your beliefs
The challenge in changing mental habits, unlike physical habits, is they have no lag phase. They are instantaneous. To transform your life, you must be proactive with your thoughts.
Thinking is the most important topic of study. Thoughts are your fiercest foe or your greatest ally; this is accurate for individuals as well as in society. So much can be gained in the study of thought. Why aren’t there courses on how to think more efficiently? It is time we study thought.
