Most of us don’t live up to our potential.
We think we can’t do better than what we do this moment, and we accept where we are in life. In short, many of us are defeatists even before we’ve attempted something. We have these false beliefs not only about ourselves and our potential, but also about the impact we have on others.
I’m a lucky man. I am doing what I love, I work with people I care about, I manage to enjoy work, and yet at the same time, I’m always looking to do more. This doesn’t make me greedy â€“ it makes me ambitious. The status quo isn’t enough, because I’m not only ambitious in my career, but in my personal life. I want to continue to grow.
That’s easy enough to say. Most of us resist change until it’s no longer an option. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Living in fear of failing isn’t living. It’s already failing.
When it comes to money, people are more than afraid. They’re terrified. They compromise on their financial futures because either they don’t have a clue about how to proceed, or they’re so frightened at the possibility of losing money that they let themselves stagnate.
But you can change, you can grow, and you can live in your potential. It may take a shift in attitude, but you can do it.
You can learn about this at The Financial Enlightenment seminar that my good friend Garrett Gunderson is leading May 13 and 14 in Salt Lake City. Garrett is the author of the bestselling Killing Sacred Cows, Overcome the Financial Myths That Are Destroying Your Prosperity, and he’s also a financial guru who helps people recognize, and reach for, their “soul purpose.” Garrett will be talking about how you can take a few simple actions now to change your future.
I’m going to be there, too, speaking about how societal shifts every 40 years or so â€“ what I call the pendulum â€“ affect our attitudes toward life, media, money. I’ll talk about how you can capitalize on where we are now in society â€“ a civic cycle, that’s all about transparency, sharing, reality. No preconceived notions of failure here â€“ but potential.
Check out the Financial Enlightenment seminar, and see who else will be offering advice and action plans on how you can grow.
