Have you ever found yourself saying, “I can’t afford that.” Well, chances are you’re living in a scarcity mindset and it’s holding you back. When you live in this mindset you stop yourself from progressing. You hold yourself back and try to preserve everything you can. Money isn’t a limited object. It’s a byproduct of value and is something that comes and goes. As long as you keep creating value, money will keep coming.
WARRIOR OF RESOURCEFULNESS
How often do you feel like you don’t have what you need to be successful? Chances are you have everything you need to make your goals come true, you just have to learn to stretch. Many people spend all of their time looking for that perfect tool to make things work. There may not be a perfect tool. And if there is you may spend so much time looking for it, that you’ve wasted the precious resource of time.
WARRIOR OF CALM
Have you ever had goals set for a certain time? Like wanting to get fit in time for summer, or wanting to lose some extra weight for a wedding. Finally the day comes, then what? Are you done? Do you move on to the next goal and forget about it?
Realistically goals should be something that we feel inner inspiration for, and are things that motivate you for the right reasons. Sometimes we get so caught up in a specific reason, we don’t dig deep to find out why we want that goal or what’s really keeping us from achieving it. When you look inside of yourself, you need to ask why you really want what you are aiming for. Chances are there is something much deeper.
WARRIOR OF RESILIENCE, COMPASSION, AND WISDOM
Do you know where your concept of time and money stems from? Chances are what you were taught as a child, and believed to be a concrete idea, is hurting both your personal and business life. Luckily this can all be changed.
WARRIOR OF COMPASSION
Do you feel like you’ve been making all the right choices in life, but you’re still unhappy? Chances are you’re making compromises and not choosing for yourself. Sometimes we make choices because we are told it is the right route, or make choices for our families. In the end, however, we need to make choices for our own goodness first. It may sound selfish, but it’s not. When you find your own happiness and self fulfillment, the success you want will find a way.
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY WARRIOR
If you have two identical companies, selling identical products, with the same marketing strategies, chances are one of them will make it and the other won’t. Why is that? The power of words.
WARRIOR OF FAITH
Fear is one of our biggest obstacles. It’s often times the thing that holds us back, especially as creatives. It’s easy to take the safe road in life, but when we go down that path we never get to challenge ourselves.
WARRIOR OF VISION
Sales is a fundamental aspect of all business. However, today when we think of sales the images that we conjure up aren’t usually too nice. We think of someone who is pushy or maybe even sleazy. How to be a good salesperson and what it takes to achieve success hasn’t changed over the last hundred years. Unfortunately, the way people try to get there has shifted in a more negative way.
WARRIORS OF FOOD AND HUMOR
Lessons in life come in various forms. Even through food! What you do when nobody’s watching says a lot about your character. That includes what you cook, and the way you cook it. If you really want to cook amazing dishes, you’ve got to be an optimistic person. Food is all about the energy that gets put into it, and the way it is prepared.
WARRIOR OF WORDS
When you’re in business all speaking is public speaking. The reality is that whether you realize it or not, every time you have an encounter with someone or a group you are stepping to the front of the room. To be an impactful business person you must master the art of speaking in every situation.
