It’s been said that there are only two ways to change an existing paradigm. One is through consistent and repeated repetition. The other is through a very strong and sudden emotional impact or event.
If you’re not familiar with what paradigms are, they are simply pre-programmed habits, attitudes, values, and beliefs. Many times they were unsolicited “gifts” by our parents, close friends, and the mainstream media (television / radio) as we grew up and began experiencing life.
What I find is that many business professionals tell me they want to change their financial results in life, have more flexibility / freedom, or become a chiropractic social media rockstar, but most never fully follow through and make it happen. Why is that? The answer is because of the underlying social conditioning that few take the time to investigate as to WHY they do what they do.
Understanding the “why” is the key to your success and being able to break-though certain barriers that arise. Uncovering this, along with what I share below, is what I believe to be the secret to attracting more prosperity, online income, and fulfillment in life.
There’s a small catch, though. It’s a little thing called the “comfort zone” that makes many think they’re safe and that they’re actually on solid ground. Most people, maybe yourself included, look forward to the day-to-day routine and it truthfully it provides a false sense of security. It doesn’t take Magnum PI (or Higgins and TC for that matter) to understand that for many, they would rather be miserable, unfulfilled and unhappy in their comfort zone than to venture into the scary unknown.
Why is this?
It’s because average majority knows what to expect in their sheltered, pseudo-sanctuary which produces predictable “safe” outcomes.
This is a big reason why most have the irrational behavior of going to a job they dislike for 40 hours per week, sitting in traffic that they absolutely loathe for another hour or two per day, and coming home complaining about how helpless they are, wishing they could have a better life financially, emotionally, etc… Talk about insanity! There’s a really good quote by an anonymous author that states:
Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.
You must first break-through the “terror barrier,” as Bob Proctor calls it. You have the choice right now, bondage or total freedom. One the other side of the terror barrier is emotional freedom that can propel you quickly to what you want and deserve most out of life. I’m a perfect example of what can happen when you remove limiting beliefs, habits, and attitudes and strip away excuses. I was forced to be brutally honest with myself and determined I didn’t like the results, financial or otherwise, that I was getting in my life. I stopped being a victim.
Here are 9 questions I recommend asking (and answering in detail) yourself if you want to rapidly change your results and have a better, more fulfilling life:
Why do I think the thoughts I think about (insert topic)?
Are these thoughts, feelings, and beliefs really my own or are they my parents, grandparents, mass mentality, etc..?
Why do I feel the way I do about (insert subject)?
Why have I been acting in this certain way?
Why am I not taking the necessary action to live the life of my dreams?
How are my thoughts, attitudes and beliefs limiting limiting the results I’m getting or NOT getting?
Am I surrounding myself with people and other sensory stimuli that are going to facilitate personal and financial growth?
How can I make (insert $$ here) per Month?
Do I have a personal Mentor I can Consult with that’s where I want to be?
I invite you watch my personal skydiving video below. This was one of the crucial moments in my life where I made the decision to push myself out of my comfort zone and not let fear of the unknown get the best of me. This was a symbolic turning point in my life in more ways than one. This experience taught me to be present in the moment and live the life you want daily, as you’re not guaranteed tomorrow.
The last thing I was thinking about when the airplane door opened was “whether or not Blue Cross was going to pay outstanding insurance claims for my chiropractic services.” I was fully alive in what was unfolding and it was F#%&$ing AMAZING!
The free fall lasted about 70 seconds but time seemed to literally stop. Knowing the path and walking the path are two different things and this was just one event in series of life altering and transformational shifts in mindset I chose to go through to live my dream.
I strongly believe the income you generate is proportional to the degree that you grow, develop and improve yourself each day. And no, that doesn’t mean you have to skydive, it means you need to take risks! I’m reminded of another quote by Zig Ziglar that went along these lines, “If you help others get what they want, they’ll help you get what you want.”
I really took this to heart and where it’s taken me has been incredible. I found my passion and purpose helping other doctors with chiropractic social media marketing showing them how to create massive brand equity and niche market domination.
How are you helping others get what they want? Also, what are you going to do and commit to today to change your personal, business, and financial results in life? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Continued success 😉
