We've heard it many times, “change your state.” But seriously, what does that even mean? You think you understand but it seems so hard. If this sounds like you, I get it. I used to feel the same way. Allow me to break it down and make it do-able for you.
First off ~ the only thing over which you have complete control is your mind. Your mind controls your “inner world” or emotions, your “state.” You cannot control people, situations, or circumstances outside of yourself, BUT you can control how you react to them. Why bother you ask? Well, if you want to have a nice life and be successful with your career and relationships and finances, etc., you'll want to learn how to manage your emotions. Trust me, keep reading,
Please make sure the people you go to for advice or strategies are those people who are getting results for themselves. If you're seeing a business coach to grow your business but they haven't had personal success themselves, you may need a different coach.
Be keenly aware of past stories you tell yourself – they may be true but they're not going to bring you the results you want by placing your focus there. Remember, energy flows where focus goes, and “it's all energy.” Give up old stories that limit you. Come up with new ones that will serve you better. Example: I've never been good at sales and everyone hates sales people. Really? Is this really true? Of course not. I spent the last 30 years in the world of sales/marketing and learned from some of the best. We don't hate sales people, we hate people that don't listen or ask the right questions. We hate feeling pressured or “sold to.”
So what's a better story you can tell yourself? How about this: “I don't feel very comfortable in sales, but this is a great opportunity for me and I will find a good sales/career coach who will teach me to be successful.”
Changing your story will change your emotional state, which determines how you think and feel, which puts you in a higher vibrating state, which helps you attract people, situations, and circumstances that quickly help you achieve your goals and dreams.
It simply boils down to where you “focus”!! If you hang on to your old stories and choose to focus on those, you'll get more of the same. BUT, if you dare to change where you place your focus, you will get in your creative zone, come up with better strategies, and no person, no thing, will be able to stop you. Guaranteed. You WILL succeed and feel great joy in the process!
I wish you the best as you change your focus and change your state!
