How to be better than yesterday - every day of your life
Hello my friend:
The hardest thing about personal development and self growth is
understanding the need for it at all.
Yeah, most people don't think they need it...
Don't even know what it is.
Here's what I mean...
When a man is frustrated, he feels justified in being
frustrated. 'You would be frustrated too if this happened to
When people get depressed, they feel that they should be
depressed, as in 'Anyone who just went through what I went
through would be depressed, too.'
People who have low self-esteem feel that they are justified in
feeling about themselves the way they do.
Most people who are overweight believe that it's just about
impossible to ever even get CLOSE to their ideal weight. 'It
would be too hard - so why bother?'
Most poor performers in the sales world believe it's just not
in them to be great at selling.
In fact, show me anyone who is not good at a thing, and they'll
give lame excuses. 'Just the way it is...'
Therefore, almost no one feels that they need to be trained in
any way to be more successful at anything...
Most people feel, frankly, that it's circumstances that control
the course of their lives...
It's not their decisions (All their decisions ARE correct).
It's not their emotions (I can't help the way I feel).
It's not their thoughts (Thoughts just pop in, I can't help
what I think).
It's not their attitude (Attitude? You try being me for a day!).
It's not their beliefs (I don't just believe I can't do it, I
'know' I can't do it).
Joe Average lives his life believing that the way he looks, his
parents, his neighborhood, his government, his hair color, his
height, his weight, his IQ, and a whole host of other garbage is
what controls is level of accomplishment and his relative level
Bunch of bull...
I've seen miracles.
What happened to me beginning in 1987 was a miracle.
I help people create what they call miracles every day through
our Think Right Now programs.
Change your thoughts and you WILL change your life.
Here's a perfect example:
When I was 11 years old and playing Little League baseball, I
would get up to bat and freeze. The pictures that were in my
mind were of swinging the ball and missing and of being
embarrassed looking stupid swinging and missing. I literally
could not imagine hitting the ball in a game.
In my backyard playing with the neighborhood kids I smacked the
crap out of the ball. I was, truthfully, the best player in the
neighborhood. The home-run king.
But when it came to playing in an actual league game, my mental
pictures were completely different. It was bizarre.
Result? I struck out every single time I got to bat. I never
even swung the bat!
So before one game, my coach told me that I was to swing at
every pitch no matter what. He said to me if I'm going to
strike out, I might as well strike out swinging. He got me to
commit to swinging on every pitch unless it was WAAAAAY out of
the strike zone.
So during that game in my first at-bat instead of standing
there watching the ball whiz by, I swung. I got my first hit of
the season... a double.
Next at-bat: Coach again reminded me to swing at every pitch so
I did. I missed getting a home run by just 2 feet. Yeah, it
hit the fence! A double.
I'll never forget the screams of the crowd as that ball was
sailing toward the fence.
Next at-bat: I hit it into the outfield again for single.
For the game, in 3 at-bats, 3 hits.
The rest of the story?
Coach stopped working with me and I went back to my old ways of
striking out the rest of the season.
For years, I wondered why, with the success I had in one game,
he stopped pushing me, and why I stopped swinging even without
Now, I don't know why the encouragement stopped. That's always
But I know for my part, it was because one game did not change
the habitual images of failure I had in my mind. That one game
didn't change how I felt about myself, it did not take the fear
Those things only happen over time...
That is why every person needs to go through mental success
training like we do at Think Right Row International.
Our mental conditioning programs can automatically help you:
- Hold in your mind pictures of success instead of failure
- See yourself as successful
- Help rid you of addictive behaviors
- Enjoy taking goal achieving actions
- Explode with confidence
- Fill you with a never-ending supply of motivation
- Create a circle of success and happiness that never has to end
All you need to do is do what I did during that one game, swing
the bat... and keep swinging.
In this case it's simply listening to the words on a CD or
cassette and reading those words on a daily basis.
Nothing could be simpler.
Just swing the bat.
I love you all!
P.S. Just like I swung the bat and got hits, if you listen and
read for just a few minutes a day, great things will happen and
will continue to happen. It is an absolute certainty.
All you need to do is decide which 'bats' you want to swing at -
