Sometimes the most important thing to change is your MIND.
I’m convinced that success is in the ‘M&M’s and no, I don’t mean the candy-coated chocolates.
I’m talking about “M’s” that I am going to share with you that will make a huge difference in your business and your life. The first in this series is your Mindset. What I know is that it is critical to have the appropriate mindset.
I get asked all the time:
• “Carrie, how did you lose so much weight?”
• “How did you get out of over six figures worth of debt?”
• “How did you deal with depression, infertility and doubts of self worth?”
The basic question with all of that is, “How did I start”? How did I start when the problems were so big? How did I deal with it all when so much of my life seemed to be going so wrong? I hate to say that my life was going wrong. That sounds so negative, doesn’t it? Surely there were still many blessings to be counted. But truth be told, that was a very dark time in my life.
Maybe you are in a dark place right now too and you are reading this hoping and praying that I will have an answer for you. You’re hoping that there is some way to fix it overnight even though you know the problems have been around for a while.
I have no magic… but I can share what worked for me and I believe it will work for you too.
Here is what helped me:
• lose 125 pounds (truthfully…I’ve lost about 572 lbs if you count all my yo-yoing 😉
• pay off over $100,000 worth of debt (more than once, I know, ugh)
• dig out of the pit of depression (this is a constant battle, I won’t sugarcoat that)
• overcome the pain of infertility — feeling like I was broken for such a ‘natural’ life event
I realized I could not change my weight, my debt, or even my relationships overnight, but what I could change and what I did change was my MINDSET. I changed my mind to believe that I was not going to live my life as a victim anymore. I was not going to let my finances and my weight just “happen” to me anymore.
- I decided to take back the control.
- I made a decision.
- I changed my mind and that changed everything.
Decide right now, just as I did, that YOU will determine your income, your weight, your happiness. Do you believe that? Do you believe that your happiness is a choice? It IS, friend — it truly is.
It is not dependent on luck or chance or whatever other clichés you are used to hearing and believing.
Choose to believe that you can make a difference in your future INSTANTLY by changing what you believe about it.
Change your mindset and when your mindset is different, you will look different, walk taller, and sound different.
When you change your mindset, it will show up in everything else in your life.
This applies to relationships, parenting, finances, and business. It won’t happen overnight but it will happen when you REALLY decide to change your mindset and then get moving in alignment with that new mindset each and every day of your life.
I ask you, what mindset do you need to change today?
What needs to be altered between your ears in order to make things different for you?
