Do you believe one can be wildly successful through sheer luck? Do you think one can be wildly successful through poverty stricken mindset?

If you answered yes to any of these questions—you may be one that is stuck in your ways, and is not willing to think outside the box… (Just being honest).

There are many of us in the world… it rounds off to about, oh, 7 BILLION! Not everyone is the same. Not everyone thinks the same. Dresses the same—or even eats the same food. Shout out to all the vegans.

But one thing I have come to realize in my 30 years on this beautifully sculptured earth is this: All successful men have a different way of thinking!

The Can-Do Mentality

Successful individuals, such as Grant Cardone, Napoleon Hill, Les Brown, T. Robbins and Gary V; is they know they can do whatever they set their mind to!

 No matter how big the challenge is—they’ve planted success in the fertile soil of their individual thought process. It is very true—you can really do whatever you set your mind to! There are people out there that went from 600 lbs. to 200 lbs… Even though it may have taken them 3 or 4 years to achieve that, that is monumental progress! If you ask them how they did it; they may respond…

 “Through will-power, grit, and the having someone push them—making them BELIEVE in themselves”, AKA having a can-do mentality!

Obstacles Only Grow if you Focus on Them

I won’t sugar coat anything. That’s not why I am here. I am here to educate, inspire and motivate people! We all have obstacles, daily. Whether it’s a negative bank account, (used to be my problem). Too many negative people in your environment. Or, relationship issues happening. But one thing I can’t stress enough is whatever you focus on, grows!

 So if you find yourself fighting with your soul-mate, and  on the brink of calling it quits—try focusing on what you can start doing right, or different. Instead of thinking about your next smart-butt response! That’s how you can have a successful relationship.

 Same thing applies with the negative bank account. If you focus on the lack of money you have—you will only go into a more depressed state, and continue to spiral into the negative. Focus on what you can do to earn more, spend less, cut out completely… or start over all together.

 Too many people in your environment, negative? Focus on the small amount of people that bring shine to your day, and the “negative Nancy’s” will disappear—like Whodini is present, himself!

I know you may be thinking, “who the heck is this guy, and who does he think he is telling me that mindset is pivotal to my success?!”

I can tell you, without a shadow of a doubt—thoughts become things! Your mentality, and outlook on success, and life in general; shape how successful you become, the people you attract in your life… and the amount of money you earn through-out your life-time.

Watch your thoughts. Keep your mentality focused on success—and know you may have all that you desire, with an abundance mindset.
