Do you have a big but problem? You’ll never be successful, happy and wealthy if your but is too big.
Here, let me show you why…
“But I have so little to offer.”
“But I’m too scared.”
“But I don’t have anything worthy to offer.”
“But everyone in my life keeps bursting my bubble.”
“But I’m not pretty or skinny enough.”
“But I’m broken.”
“But no one believes in me anymore.”
“But I’m a victim.”
“But everyone tells me I can’t do it.”
“But no one loves me.”
“But I’m the ugly one.”
“But I’m too old.”
“But I can’t keep up with all this new-fangled technology.”
“But my life is too complicated and I’m too entangled.”
“But it’s a dog-eat-dog world and I’m terrified of dogs.”
“But my wishes never come true.”
“But I don’t have anything unique to offer.”
“But I’m stuck (in a boring job; in my marriage; in this godforsaken town).”
“But I don’t know where to find what I need.’
“But it takes too much work.”
“But I’m broke.”
“But no one wants to help me.”
“But there’s not enough time.”
“But it’s too complicated.”
BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please, already…. Shut your big but up!
The next time you hear the “big but” voice in your head, confront it. Put up your dukes and pound it to pieces. Shove those poisonous buts into your garbage disposal and pulverize them. Wash the toxic remains away and watch as they swirl down the drain and become one with the rest of the sewage.
Kick your big but’s a$$.
Until you conquer your “big but” problem, it’ll hold you back and prevent you from achieving success.
Our lives are nothing but the stories we tell ourselves. If you don’t like the story your life has become — tell yourself a better one. Think about all of the things you can do instead of the things you can’t. Start a different internal conversation and you’ll become wealthy in more ways than one.
Imagine the kind of person you want to be and think the thoughts that person would think. Act the way that person would act. Once you start behaving like this person, others will start treating you like that person. You’ll start to believe it. Then it will be true. Then you’ll be open to learn. Open to change. Open to grow. You’ll be ready to allow success, wealth and happiness into your life. Researchers find that an optimistic personal outlook is more than just seeing the bright side of things. Believing in yourself actually produces increases in good health, motivation, and achievement in most people. (Schulman, P. 1999. “Applying Learned Optimism to Increase Sales Productivity”)
Make no excuses. Allow it to happen. If it works for me, then why not you? Your new life will astound you.
(Hey now, I said no more buts!)
