Everything You Need is Within Reach
Are you willing to accept new ideas and suggestions on how to make changes in your life?
Surely you’re wondering, what can you do to feel empowered and have more fulfillment in your life, career, or relationships. Many people feel this way from time to time, including myself. Surely you’re curious enough to read this blog post.
I wince when I hear someone say, “I can’t do that” or “My boss won’t pick me for the promotion.” That is called a limiting belief and you’re creating a mental image of this actually happening. Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can do a thing, or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right!”
I have been fortunate to study a set of success principles that helped me make changes and to have more fulfillment. It is easier said than done, but hundreds of hours I’ve spent learning and after comparing my approach before I started incorporating these principles in my life, I’m grateful to be in this position to help. I can summarize this learning for you now in a few minutes read time.
To achieve anything in life, first, you have to take 100% responsibility for everything you do. It is easy to blame others for things that happen to us, but in the end, it is our “response” to the world around us that creates the outcome. The formula for this success principle is this:
E (Event) + R (Response) = O (Outcome)
Let me give you an example.
The Event: You’re given a new assignment but have to travel across the country.
Your Response: You decline because you fear the unknown.
The Outcome: The new assignment is offered to someone else. Later on, you wished you had accepted it.
Let’s try one more example.
The Event: You want to become a writer.
Your Response: You spend time learning the craft and practice writing everyday.
The Outcome: You become a published writer.
Whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish, it is your response to the event that will determine the outcome.
Keep this principle on a post-it note by your desk or in your wallet until you remember to use it everyday.
I’ve developed a program, Discover Your PossibilitiesTM in which you learn to establish goals and create positive images of these goals. Andrew Carnegie, steel industrialist, and later in life, a philanthropist devoted to libraries, world peace, and scientific research, once said, “If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”
The methods of these success principles have been developed by Jack Canfield, renowned human potential expert, speaker, and originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. As Certified Canfield Trainer in the Success Principles, my goal is to help you accomplish your goals and live a life of fulfillment.
