Do they like you?
Do they encourage your dreams and build your self-esteem?
Whatever your demons are (and we all have them), now is the time to rewrite the script in your head.
This is the most difficult part of your journey. Changing these voices is harder than believing, because if you can master this, then believing will become second nature. So know that going in. This will be the fight of your life, every day. This requires straight mental hustle.
Next, identify your dream life and write it out. Vividly imagine it becoming a reality. Call it “visualization” or “daydreaming,” but every successful person has credited their ability to create a visual movie in their mind as being a key part of their success. In fact, it is something they do naturally as part of their daily life; it’s simply who they are. The dream is not words, or a fleeting idea; it’s an actual living, breathing part of their life.
When author Sarah Centrella kicked her cheating husband out, she didn’t have five dollars to her name. Her electric, water and gas bills were all past due and rent was late. She hadn’t worked in over two years. The car title was in her husband’s name, as was their bank account. She was destitute and stranded with no way to provide for her three small children.
Instead of falling apart, Sarah took charge of her future. In just 18 months, Sarah went from a newly single mom living on food stamps, to an executive of a software company. Her book, Hustle Believe Receive proves that anyone, no matter where they start from, can change their life, achieve success, and live their dream.
Hustle Believe Receive features 51 inspiring stories of people who believe in Sarah’s message, each of whom she personally interviewed for this book.
