NEWS FLASH: Other people are not stopping you from doing what you want to do. Mental slavery is stopping you. I know it's tough; I've been there ... but I've been delivered.
When I was being harassed as a public school teacher - and I mean harassed; I experienced everything from having the union called on me by other teachers to having my supervisor joke a little too much about me being a slave - I came into agreement with fear first and then anger. Neither of those helped me overcome. What they did do was blind me to what was really going on and make react emotionally instead of with wisdom.
I encounter people regularly who are always fussing about "they" and what "they're" doing to keep them from success. I was homeless in 2011. My disobedience and lack of wisdom put me there. That was my fault, not anyone else's. I realize others' actions sometimes affect our lives, but 99% of the time we still have the final say and role to play that determines the outcome.
I've written about focus before and I'm going to continue to mention it until I see it increase among the masses. I want you to be successful and focusing on one thing at a time is a success secret that will put you over. I'm a witness. Get this: I've adopted the practice of writing goals and focusing on them. When I do this, I worry less about other people and things, especially people and things that have no effect on my desired future.
I had a mentoring call last week with a client who'd begun a new job. After only one or two weeks they were already irritated by the co-worker across the aisle. They were flustered and I listened and when they were satisified they'd been heard and their complaint received I asked a question and gave very simple advice.
There's an old saying that we don't have to agree to join every argument we're invited to. It's the truth. I wasn't in the past, but now I'm fantastic at ignoring people. I'm also great at stating my opinion in my head and keeping my mouth shut. Also, very new for me, but extremely powerful. My mind has been renewed to the point that I don't stew over things but run them through a wisdom wash and that keeps me from drama and wasting my time.
These are all things I can help you with as a mentor. Book a session, schedule a call or if you're not ready for either of those things buy my newest full-size book Revelation is for Elevation: How to Conquer What Blocks Your Extraordinary Promotion. In this book I share how I broke through from total provision into abundance and an amazing career.
