The economy is bad.
You didn’t make enough money last year.
This year isn’t looking much better.
How will you get clients?
You feel insecure; uncertain.
You wonder if you have what it takes.
DRAMA is any obstacle to your peace and prosperity. When your thinking or your circumstances become your drama, it is time to CLEAR THE FOG and reinvent.
Reinvention can take the form of an action, a mental shift, an attitude, a decision or a physical transformation.
I want to encourage you to reinvent your identity.
Reinvent Your Identity
One of my favorite authors, Eckhart Tolle says that what you identify with will eventually cause you pain. Do you identify yourself as a business owner; as one who has a lot of money, as a mother, or as beautiful?
Don’t confuse WHERE You are, with WHO you are.
So you feel insecure. So your check book isn’t what you think it should be. Don’t be tempted to start making up stories about yourself or using the economy to make excuses not to be successful.
Beating yourself up or blaming circumstances is the unconscious path of least resistance. LIVE above the LINE of blame and resentment and make a conscious choice that you will not define yourself by your mistakes, your learning curve or your circumstances.
When you start to drift into the fog and the murky waters of head drama, take charge immediately. I have a few mantras I have created for you.
- I am not my drama
- This is just WHERE I am, not WHO I am
- This too shall pass
- I’m smart, I’ll figure it out
As T Harv. Eker says in his book, The Millionaire Mind,
Rich people are bigger than their problems.
Poor people are smaller than their problems.
Tell yourself the truth. You are a creator. Creators are resourceful, they ask for help, they are innovative. Creators don’t blame the economy nor do they “wait on the economy” to get better before they act. Creators find a way to learn from the mistakes and circumstances and the result is growth.
You are always bigger than your problems. You will take full responsibility for your situation and one day you will be able to use this experience to help someone else who also needs to be reminded that where you are is not who you are.
