The Power of Self Motivation!

I was reading the new edition of "Mach2 with Your Hair on Fire" by Richard Bliss Brooke, who went from working at a chicken processing plant to becoming a multi-millionaire:

Here’s what happened…

I changed.  I changed who I hung out with.  I changed what I read, what I watched, and what I listened to.  I changed my opinions… about the world and about myself.  I changed what I said to myself.  I changed the chemistry of my body, and I changed how I felt.  I changed my attitude (and my altitude).  I changed what I believed.  I changed my habits.  I even changed what I loved to do, and as a result I changed my skills.

It wasn’t easy, but it was just as simple as the decisions I’d made early on.  I just decided to be different and to do different things and then I kept deciding those new decisions over and over and over again until they caught hold.  And then, all I did was hold on!

Change is possible for all of us.  You may have heard lots of cliches about how we cannot change who we are… but just ask yourself if you’ve changed.  What events or insights in your life have changed what you believe and how you act?

Think about people who have come and gone in your life.  Think about events—some joyous, some tragic.  Think about wisdom you have gained.  Have you changed?  If you have, you can change even more.  I suggest that if it is on purpose and by design, you can change more in the next year than you have your whole life.  And in the next four years, you can become a whole different person, manifesting entirely different results.  Excerpt from "MACH2 with Your Hair on Fire," Page 10 written by Richard Bliss Brooke

Many successful people are ordinary people doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. They recognized an idea and got excited about it, then acted upon it. For all intents and purposes you effectively have been given “inside information” that almost no one knows about.

Drugs, gaming, alcohol or surgery are NOT the answer! Getting a good night’s rest, proper nutrition, drinking plenty of clean and pure water is the answer. YOU can play a big part towards changing yourself and our world in a wonderful way - change!

Thanks Liz,

Thanks Liz,
I think with the help of my higher power and other people, I can change.
