Every setback is a set up for a comeback! — Vannis Lopez
I was able to accomplish so much when I focused on my passion and my vision. It was truly life-changing. So when you are going through something, although it may be tough, painful and even frustrating, avoid getting stuck in a “pity party” by relying on sulking complaints like these:
I have the worst luck.
No one loves me.
They all hope I fail.
I can never catch a break.
CHECK YOURSELF by diving deep into the message of your experience; ask what you can learn from it, because there is always a lesson, no matter how murky the waters may seem. I know when you are knee-deep in the swamp of your stress or sorrow, the last thing you want to think about is the lesson.
A setback is an opportunity for you to take a different view of what went wrong and what role you played in the outcome.
A setback can allow you to consciously shift how you react to things, so you don’t spiral down into depression.
A setback can spark new and innovative solutions to change things for the better!
A setback can remind you how much love there is in your circle of friends and family – grab onto your support system!
Complaining doesn’t create change, it only prolongs the problem! So when you’re going through whatever it is, trust and believe that it won’t last forever. There’s a higher power involved and it’s all about this classroom called LIFE. The dust will clear and you will pick yourself back up.
Just remember, it’s up to you to muster up the personal courage and belief to make your JAW DROPPIN’ COME BACK! Believe me, we will all be cheering, rooting and applauding when you do.
Keep your mind and heart focused on manifesting your victorious triumph, and after every stormy setback, try, try, again!
Your mind is an extraordinary device – it will think about ANYTHING you want it to, for as long as you want it to, in as much detail as you choose.
What are the thoughts that dominate your mind?
How can I succeed? What if I fail?
How can I make a difference? Who cares?
How can I care even more? What difference does it make?
What’s one thing I could do today? Why me?
How can I be more supportive? Why don’t they support me?
How can I serve? What’s in it for me?
Many of these questions are asked unconsciously – we don’t even realize we are asking them, yet we are constantly asking ourselves questions that either move us towards a fulfilling life or headlong into misery.
It is said that the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions. Ask yourself these questions daily – and more importantly – take the time to answer them!
Who do I love and who loves me?
What can I do today that will make me smile?
If I let go of guilt, how will it benefit me?
If I let go of resentment, how will it benefit me?
If I let go of guilt and resentment, how will it benefit those around me?
What will I no longer tolerate?
What’s one brave thing I can do today?
Who can I share a random act of kindness with today?
How can I appreciate and share my kindness and warmth today even more?
What am I grateful for?
Your thoughts are your choice. Spend thirty days asking yourself the above questions each and every day and notice what has changed in your life… and see the ripple effect it has on those around you!
Money Magnetism is about cash flow. Everybody wants cash flow but the question is, how can we get more cash to flow to us?
Cash will always flow to individuals and business who solve problems.
The key to massive wealth is to position yourself as the most sought after person in your business, marketplace or company. You want to be the ultimate “problem solver”. People will literally throw money at you if you have the ability to identify their pressing problems – and then become the solution. It’s that simple.
If you are working for someone else, keep in mind that the only reason you are making the amount of money you are now is because you have not made yourself overqualified for that position. You can do that by solving your company’s immediate problems. You may resist this idea, but it’s the truth. You are getting paid what you are worth, whether you agree with it or not.
If your business is not prospering then you are not solving enough pressing problems. Ask yourself this question, “What solution can I offer to people who have a specific desire, a specify craving or a specific yearning?”
Solving problems is the “secret” to all wealth creation. Ask Bill Gates and he will tell you that’s how he made his BILLIONS. You can do it too!
