What's crazy is that many of these “stories” we tell ourselves are not objectively true. They're just things we make up through our assumptions. Or they're beliefs we've unconsciously accepted from others.

Thing is, when we accept something as true, our brain immediately goes to work to find evidence that supports it. That's why our stories and beliefs seem so real to us!

Bottom line:
If you want to change your life, you must first change your stories and beliefs about yourself, your circumstances, and the world around you.

I created the Mindset Shifts Masterclass to help you do just that. Registration is OPEN NOW and will remain open only through 6pm PST on Sunday, May 21.

Even though obstacles and challenges seem uncomfortable as we're experiencing them, they are absolutely essential for our personal growth. Here's why:

Obstacles force us to think differently. When we face challenges head-on, we are forced to find innovative solutions that we otherwise wouldn't have thought of.

Obstacles provide clarity.
Unsure about what area of your life to focus on? Identify your biggest obstacle or disadvantage, then work on overcoming it.

Obstacles are blessings in disguise.
Think of all the times you've looked back on your struggles and realized they actually led to something awesome.

A personal note:
Years ago, I had trouble remembering certain self-development concepts on a daily basis. This small personal obstacle motivated me to translate parts of books I was reading into clear and simple language for myself so I could retain the information better. This led to the creation of @thinkgrowprosper, which has been the source of various successes and exciting projects for me.

I am constantly reminding myself of this. It's easy to fall into the trap of “analysis paralysis.” Start before you think you are ready. Correct your mistakes as you go. Not knowing what you're doing is half the fun. #life

Don't make the mistake of ignoring the things you are drawn to just because they seem trivial or unrelated to your larger goals. It's not your job to know how they're connected, it's your job to take action on the things that spark your interest and pique your curiosity.

This isn't about being naive or pretending that negative things don't happen. It's about being aware that negative things happen but still having the courage to carry on in spite of them. Don't ever become so jaded with the world that you forget to notice all the good in it.

One of the biggest mistakes we make is assuming everyone thinks like us or sees the world in the same way we do. This may sound obvious but this disconnect is often at the root of much of conflict and intolerance in the world.

The more you travel to different countries or read about different cultures and time periods, the more you realize that your way of thinking is just one of many. There are many assumptions about good and bad that are not universally held. That's the reason we have wars– because one person's idea of good is someone else's idea of bad.

For most of us, the belief systems we use to navigate our world are based on our culture, gender, economic group, assumptions, and time period into which we were born. But here's the kicker: most of these things are completely out of our control. We do not choose them, at least not initially.

This is great news! It means that we are not stuck with any particular set of beliefs or assumptions about the world. It means we can change them if we wish, and by doing so, change how we interact with others and the world. It also means we can work to understand other people's belief systems to cultivate more harmonious relationships.

Don't go looking for the person of your dreams. Instead, focus on becoming the person of your dreams and you'll be more likely to find the right person.

Don't chase riches. Instead, work on creating value for others and mastering your craft, thereby increasing your value.

You must match the energy of your desires before you can manifest them in your life. Work on being the best version of yourself possible and the rest will fall into place.
