Hello, my friends,
I have a question for you: Do you expect to win?
In any given set of experiences, challenges, or obstacles you are facing in your life, are you expecting to win?
As you’ll see in the video, I am dressed in a tuxedo. It’s because I’m going to share with you what I call the “Bond” attitude.
If you have seen any of the James Bond movies, regardless of which actor is playing the character, James Bond always wins. He expects to win.
He gets the girl. He beats the bad guy. He gets the money. He saves the day. Just when things look like they’re down and out, and he’s about to be killed, he still has that winning attitude. He expects to win…and he does.
Of course, these are formula movies and not real life, but it illustrates the concept well.
I believe it is apropos for today’s lesson because, in life, you don’t get what you deserve.
Let me say that again: You don’t get what you deserve in life.
You get what you think you deserve. (Click to Tweet)
What you think you deserve is what you attract.
Put another way, you don’t get what you earn in life. No, you get what you expect to earn. I don’t mean that solely in a financial way, although it is certainly applicable to the world of money. But in terms of fitness, health, love, relationship, or any other metric of success, you don’t get what you earn. You get what you expect to earn.
I am not suggesting this is a shortcut to success, that it allows you to avoid the work required to be a winner…no, not at all. But so often, people are defeated before the game has even begun because they expect to lose.
If you have two people with equal skill, equal talent, and equal experience, the one with the better attitude is going to win the vast majority of the time. It is not 50/50 or 60/40. It’s more like 90% of the time…the person with the better attitude is going to prevail over the one with the same skills, but lacking that winning James Bond attitude. Of course, there are many examples – in sports, in the world of business, and in politics – of people who just have that expectation to win.
I challenge you to ask yourself for the upcoming week or the week you are in:
Are you prepared?
Are you worthy?
Have you done the work?
Are you deserving?
For some people, that last question is tough to answer, but if you have prepared for it, then own it.
Tell yourself, “I am ready. I am deserving of this. I know that I am ready, and I am worthy. The world has abundance, and I can attract it.”
This is not New-Agey, touchy-feely stuff. I’m not suggesting you sit in the lotus position in your living room and wait for the world to beat a path to your door. It’s not about that at all. It’s about doing hard work, and doing smart work; and it’s also about having the expectation that you will win and that you deserve to win.
If expecting to win is a challenge for you, I highly recommend you consider taking the Ascend on Demand course, where we talk about that and other challenges in detail. There is also a monthly accountability and support call to help you grow in this area. To learn more about this online program, click here.
