Your great­est am­bi­tions are ex­pressed in your busi­ness pur­suits. You quickly find that book knowl­edge about busi­ness has lit­tle to do with run­ning your own busi­ness. This is where your cre­ativ­ity will shine. Use your brain to rise above the rest. Your cre­ativ­ity is key to plac­ing your busi­ness above your com­peti­tor, and will ul­ti­mately place you as the ex­pert in your field.

Your be­liefs af­fect your abil­ity to run a suc­cess­ful busi­ness – and in­deed to have a suc­cess­ful life.

I want to share a few in­sights about how some of the things you were told when you were young (and that you took on) af­fect you to­day.

“Suc­cess­ful peo­ple do what un­suc­cess­ful peo­ple won’t”

TRUE: So many peo­ple sim­ply give up be­cause it’s too hard. Many wealthy peo­ple started their jour­ney with noth­ing. Are you ready to think wealthy, act wealthy, and be wealthy, in­clud­ing all of life’s ups and downs, or are you just go­ing to sit there dream­ing, and crit­i­cis­ing oth­ers for hav­ing a go at do­ing great things? Part of the process of mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant changes means you first must change the way you think about things; in this cir­cum­stance, be­ing wealthy.

If you limit your­self to your ex­ist­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, you will not go fur­ther. If you want to be suc­cess­ful, do not sit there and won­der how oth­ers do it. Go out and do some­thing about it. Force your mind to think how you can achieve it on your own. Do not let a small thing such as money block you from be­com­ing suc­cess­ful. Find a way to get around it. When you re­ally start to un­der­stand money, you will also come to the re­al­i­sa­tion that money ac­tu­ally has lit­tle to do with over­all wealth, but it does make the travel eas­ier.

“Suc­cess is gauged on how much you have given up”

TRUE: How much are you will­ing to give up to get to where you want to be? Would you put ev­ery­thing on the line to get there, or would you rather play it safe and stay within your com­fort zone? You have de­ci­sions to make. Some of those de­ci­sions you may con­sider se­vere, but, in hind­sight, you find they were nec­es­sary.

Self-lim­i­ta­tion and risk play a big part on the whole suc­cess and wealth sce­nario. Some­times, you need to give up ev­ery­thing to get you where you want to be. Ask your­self this: “Am I will­ing to risk it all to be­come suc­cess­ful or how much am I will­ing to risk get­ting on top?”

“A penny saved is a penny earned”

NOT TRUE: Do the maths. Un­less you are a com­pul­sive gam­bler, this is not true.

“Life is fair”

NOT TRUE: Stop kid­ding your­self! Life will al­ways have chal­lenges and prob­lems which will not seem fair. This is how it worked be­fore and how it still works. It is your obli­ga­tion to ad­just in life and ac­cept your achieve­ments.

Your ‘mind over mat­ter’ can move moun­tains. Just do it. n Shan­non Panzo, PHD, is an ex­pert of men­tal pho­tog­ra­phy, pho­to­graphic mem­ory, and the prac­ti­cal func­tions and ap­pli­ca­tions of the brain. For over 30 years he has taught peo­ple how to ac­cess the higher uses of their mind, and en­deav­ours to help peo­ple to gain and main­tain their lives in a pos­i­tive way.
