Motivation Mojo — ready… set… Go
Get motivated to change your luck. Maybe in the past you felt like you had nothing but bad luck. Well that changes today if you want it to. Consider this post your four leaf clover. Because with PCI, Lou Tice’s wisdom, and your attitude — your luck not only can but will change.
Lou Tice in his book Smart Talk: For Achieving Your Potential says: “You aren’t born lucky. You make your own breaks based on the truth that you believe about yourself.” No matter what situation you find yourself in today, luck truly had nothing to do with it. You are exactly where you are because of your thoughts. You could be back up against the wall and see your position as a starting point from yesterday or you could face the wall and limit your perspective.
Let’s try to turn you around so that you can use that wall to kick off from.
What do you believe about yourself? Who’s voice do you let navigate your self worth? What do you expect from yourself?
Get the answers because they have value and can help you create change in your life. Here is a truth for you… the only opinion of you that matters, is your own. The opinions of others can serve a purpose. You can use them as a guide to what you want them to see. But let’s be honest – their perspective of you does not define you, it defines them.
If your perspective of you is low then your attitude toward yourself will also be low. You will settle too easily for things that you feel are beneath you. There are many reasons why you might do this to yourself, but change and empowerment does not come from blame or shame.
Rather change and empowerment come from forgiveness and love.
If you find you are facing the wall, then it is time to write, say, and envision a new perspective of yourself. Start Lou Tice style with some positive affirmations about yourself.
Repeat Tice’s quote above as if it was written just for you. “My luck in life is changing forever.” How do you feel when you read, say, and envision those words? Can you believe them? Can you trust them? Of course you can! No matter what, your luck is changing and it will do so throughout your life.
Think about your old opinions of yourself, what do you need to be telling yourself so that you can kick off that wall and swim in the ocean of your potential? Write the words out as positive affirmations as if they are already true of you today. Let your spirit feel the freedom of reality and see yourself being lucky as you define lucky.
Soon you will be looking in the mirror and seeing the person you want the world to see. Better yet you will see the person you want to see looking back at you.
That is a special kind of motivational mojo.
