One Simple Shift That Will Change Everything

March 3, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

We often talk in the business world about change, and how changing our habits or other changes can make all the difference.

Today I’m going to talk about mindset shifts, and the key mindset to changing your entire world is knowing that you are empowered, knowing that you control your future and your destiny. Not everything is preordained for us. In the short term, we may not have a great deal of control as we’ve already agreed to live our lives certain ways – we’ve purchased homes, cars, and set up a certain lifestyle. As you move to the long term, you get a great deal of control over your life. You can have a vision and you can intentionally direct your efforts to end up where you want to be.

Yes, you are in control of your world, and the world is yours to direct. With intentional effort and time, you can end up where you want to be. In my life and in the life of my clients, I’ve seen intentional effort applied on a regular basis that lead to tremendous outcomes. I’ve seen business owners take on lifestyles, and do things that they never dreamed they would be able to do by restructuring their businesses to give them flexibility that allows them to live the life they want.

That minor change in intentionality of effort has made all the difference in my life, and in my business career. I’ve applied principles again and again, and made intentional changes. Each time, as I got closer and closer to my vision, and made my vision stronger and stronger, my ability to get where I wanted to go got better and better.

You too are in control of your life and your destiny. Where are you headed to, where do you want to get to, what steps are you taking to achieve your goals? Join us in the comments below, and let us know.
