“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peale
Thoughts are things.
Thoughts leads to feelings.
Feelings lead to actions.
Actions lead to results.
No thought lives in your head rent-free. Each thought you have will either be an asset or liability. It will either move you toward happiness and success or away from it. It will either empower you or weaken you. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to choose your thoughts wisely in your personal life as well as in your professional life.
If you believe you can be paid more then you can be. But if you think it will never happen, then guess what, it won’t. Throughout the day, be conscious of your self-talk. Do you talk to yourself in a gentle and loving manner or do you berate yourself every time something goes wrong?
If you truly want to get paid more and promoted faster, speak to yourself in a way that conveys that you are a unique person with special talents and abilities. Your combination of education, experience, knowledge, problems, successes, and challenges make you truly remarkable. There’s no one else like you. You have great potential, you just have to believe it.
Action Item: Monitor your self-talk. Write down 3 positive things about you. Dwell on those thoughts.
