Do you have any idea what I am referring to in the title? On numerous occasions, while conducting seminars, I have asked this very question. Most people have no idea what I mean when I ask this, and I won’t keep you waiting any longer. I am however, going to answer this question with another question:
Do you live from the inside out or from the outside in?
Do you have any idea what I am talking about yet? I am talking about what you allow to control your thoughts, and therefore you. What information do you allow in? Keep in mind, that whatever we allow into our conscious mind, unchecked, is impressed upon the subconscious mind and will begin to manifest in our lives.
It really is irrelevant what the source of this information is. Think about that for a moment, what is controlling you now? What does your future hold? Ensure that you are making the decisions in your life, and you REFUSE to be influenced by negative outside sources of any kind.
You will listen to people, teachers, parents and advisors, just be sure that the people to whom you are listening are successful in that area of their lives, as you will start to experience similar results.
Here are just some of the sources that we listen to, and or some of the activities that we engage in.
Derogatory and or Scandalous conversations with one or more individuals.
Becoming involved with a source of constant negativity.
Unproductive conversations (gossip, sarcasm, rumors etc.)
Listening to friends and family that are naysayers or detractors.
Always seeking, and or associating with people that are always seeking and expecting the worst.
Uncritically allowing outside information into our conscious mind (and therefore unconscious mind as well), and permitting it to impact our decisions and our lives.
Blaming someone or something else. (You either take responsibility for everything, or you are a victim)
Listening/watching/reading media sources.
Permitting our paradigms to continue to control us. (paradigms will be discussed at another time)
Fear. (of failure, of what other may think, of something new etc.)
Now, let’s discuss what we should be focusing on in order to ensure that we are headed in the right direction, the direction of our goals, aspirations and dreams.
Have a goal, a destination. (DO NOT worry about the “HOW”)
Focus! Concentrate on one thing to the exclusion of all outside distractions.
Understand that we need to believe in ourselves and that we can accomplish anything that we truly desire. Believe in YOU!
Make an irrevocable decision to achieve your goal. (Never be held back by indecision)
Create the image of what you desire. (Your goals) (Paul Martinelli says: “Hold Your Image”)
Become emotionally involved with this image.
Develop belief that your goal will come to fruition.
Know that there is no such thing as fear. (it is a paradigm)
Invoke the Law of Action.
Be ready, and know that you deserve abundance and prosperity.
Only pay attention to those of like mind and who also want to achieve Greatness!
KNOW that YOU can accomplish anything you want to!

The great teacher Les Brown has been quoted as follows, “The two greatest days in a person’s life are, the day that they are born, and the day that they find out why.” What he is saying is, you will find your calling and when you do, trust me on this, it will be absolutely phenomenal. I don’t believe that there are words to describe the feeling. It you haven’t had this experience, keep at it and it will happen. Persistence is one of the rules of success. Be the very best at what you are doing today, where you are today, and you will start to see a shift, your dreams will begin to become reality.
What or whom are you listening to? What are you Reading? What are you Watching? Is the information that you are receiving from these sources constructive? Is this information going to move you in the direction of your image or goal? If the answer is yes, great! If the answer is no, make the changes and watch what begins to happen.
You can even “Create Your Own Economy.”
I urge you to make an irrevocable decision, right now, to be extremely critical of what you allow in!
