Change Your Mind, Change Your Life!
Here is a beautiful story to illustrate the power of mindset that I’m sure you’ve probably come across. It goes like this;
At the turn of the century, a shoe company looking to expand and increase sales decided to check out a country in East Africa. They sent out two salesmen to assess the feasibility of doing business in that country. Upon arrival, both salesmen were exposed to the same environment. All around them were people walking around barefoot. No shoe store in sight.
Both men came to a conclusion and dispatched a telegraph to their manager:
Man 1: Opportunity for sales dismal and unlikely! Nobody wears shoes here!
Man 2: Opportunity for sales tremendous! Nobody wears shoes here!
SAME REALITY, DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE, DIFFERENT OUTCOMES.
Mindset determines how we’ll go through life. There will always be challenges in life. That’s a guarantee. How we face these challenges in different areas of our lives; health, finances, relationships, career, business, you name it….. all comes down to the mindset we use in approaching the challenges that are bound to appear.
DO YOU SEE LIMITATIONS OR POSSIBILITIES? “Whether you believe that you can or believe that you can’t, you usually right.” – Henry Ford
