“If you want to go big, stop thinking small.” – The Success Club
Everybody wants to live an abundant life, filled with joy, love and financial success. Yes? Absolutely, I know that I do.
Most of us could use some help and guidance to achieve our goals. One of my favorite teachers is writer and motivational speaker, T. Harv Eker, the author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.
Mr. Eker shares tips he has learned over 30 years of building his successful business. These were first published on his website: www.t.harveker.com in July 2017.
“Take Ownership of Your Life — You Create Your Success, Mediocrity or Financial Failure. So many of us spend our lives waiting for our “big break.” We think that if we just put our heads down, work hard, and do the right things, eventually someone will hand over the keys to our success.
If you want to create real success in your life, you need to believe that you are the one creating your own life. And on the flip side, that you are the one who creates any mediocrity or financial struggle.
It may sound harsh — but if you look at it the right way, it’s actually empowering. Because if you’re the one responsible for your own failure…
Then you’re also capable of changing your life for the better. This is how wealthy people see the world, and it’s one of the reasons for their success. Most middle class and broke people see things very differently Instead of consciously creating their lives — they see life as something that “happens” to them, instead of “for” them.
So, before you try to do anything else, it’s time to take control.
When you believe that you can create the life that you desire, rather than waiting for good things to happen to you, you’ll be putting yourself on the fast track to wealth and success.
If You Want to Change the Fruits, First Change the Roots. This may not make a lot of sense at first, but picture a tree in an orchard. Any kind of fruit will do. This tree you’re imagining represents your life.
In life, all our actions will eventually have some kind of result – in other words, your tree will someday bear fruit. But what kind of fruit? Will it be juicy, crispy, and sweet? Or will the fruits of your labor be disappointing and bitter?
Most of us would like the juicy, sweet fruit – the successful results. So, if you want a tree to produce more and better fruit, what do you do?
You go back to the roots. You can’t change the fruit that’s already been produced, but you can make tomorrow’s fruit sweeter. You nurture the parts hidden under the ground, knowing that eventually your efforts will affect the entire system of the plant.
Life is the same way. If you aren’t getting the results you want, it’s important to make sure you’re focusing on the real problem, not the end result. Focus on the invisible to change the visible.
Be Willing to be Uncomfortable. The truth is, most people have trouble stepping outside their comfort zone. When we hit a roadblock or an obstacle, we assume that we’re doing something wrong.
But nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of retreating to old, familiar territory, try taking a different approach
If you’re feeling uncomfortable, challenged, or discouraged – that means you’re growing. Even if it doesn’t feel like you’re making progress, the fact that you’re moving outside your comfort zone means you’re moving forward.
Many of us envision success as a straight line, a road from point ‘a’ to point ‘b’. But the road to success is filled with unexpected twists and turns. Being able to accept and adapt to them is one of the major factors in achieving any big goal in life.
So, the next time you feel lost, or confused, or just a little out of your depth, remember: it’s a good thing to try things that make you uncomfortable.
What You Focus on Expands. Have you ever met the kind of person who can’t seem to stop complaining about everything that’s wrong with their life?
You probably have. Did that person seem happy — or did they seem miserable?
It’s an unconscious trap we all fall into sometimes, but it’s a habit you must break if you want to reach your goals in life. And here’s why:
When you are complaining or negative, what are you focusing on — what’s right in your life or what’s wrong in your life?
What’s wrong in your life.
So, if what you focus on expands then what are you going to get more of in your life?
What’s wrong in your life.
So instead of looking for reasons why everything is wrong, commit to looking at what’s right.
By really focusing on your goals in a new and more dedicated way, you’ll find new roads opening that you never would have noticed before.”
Commit yourself to follow these steps and enjoy the journey to wealth and success.

It’s O.K. for me to feel uncomfortable; it’s a sign I am growing.
I am responsible for my life…I take total ownership.
