Soon, the voice in our head sounds like:

“They are always difficult to be with.”

“I can never get this right!”

“Nobody wants to buy my stuff!”

“If I fail I’ll lose everything!”

“I never have enough energy.”

When bad things happen, like:

•late fees,

•missed appointments,

•lost sales,

•arguments,

•gaining weight,

•or breakups

slide23

We look for

evidence to prove our belief

is right.

“I wouldn’t have seen it

if I didn’t believe it.”

Marshall McLuhan

Pretty soon your belief becomes

FACT and you act as if it’s TRUE.

“A great many people think they

are thinking when they are merely

rearranging their prejudices.”

 William James

slide31

So, how are successful

people so

POSITIVE?

slide34

1. AWARE

Realize something isn’t working AND you have

choices. Sure, there are people you can blame and

maybe you did screw up. But, what you are

experiencing right now is under your control.

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide35

2.ACCOUNTABLE

Superman only saves cartoon characters and

good luck trying to win the lottery. You are

responsible. Now, decide what you want and

get ready to work for it.

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide36

3. ASK

Blame is judgment - curiosity opens doors. When

you ask “Why does this always happen to me?”

your sub-conscious comes up with 12 (or more)

reasons why you failed.

That won’t help.

Instead, ask a good question, like “What’s one

thing I can do RIGHT NOW to make this better?”

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide37

4.ACTION

This is where the rubber hits the road and you

practice taking control. Successful people train their

mind to instantly flip the switch and turn more light

on what’s in their way.

They don’t run away.

And they don’t look for more bad things to happen.

They change their mind and take action.

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide39

ARGUEMENT

!

The fastest way to change

someone is for you go first.

Apologize for how they feel

and ask how you can make

things better. Don’t argue, get

defensive, or pissy.

Just let them know you heard

them and you care.

!

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide40

SALES

!

Pick up the phone and call a

client. But, don’t try to sell

them. Simply, ask them what

they need. And then ask

another question. And another.

Build trust and empathy now

and you’ll get all the sales you

need later.

!

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide41

EXERCISE

!

Put on your running shoes and

walk out the door. Don’t think

about it. Set your watch for 20

minutes.

Don’t debate it.

Get to the road, start jogging.

Don’t stop.

!

AWARE ACCOUNTABLE ASK ACTION

slide42

DEBT

!

Call the credit card company,

explain your mistake and ask to

have the late fee removed. Go

to your bank. Set up a monthly

auto payment to reduce your

debt.

Every action (even small ones)

takes you closer to your goal.

“Our concentration on

a positive thought

robs the painful

thought of its sting.”

Richard Restak, Mozart’s

Brain and the Fighter Pilot
