My name is Lanacia Rachel. I live in the driest place in the United States, the Mojave Desert.
When most people think of the Mojave, they think, “It’s too hot. I can’t live out there.”
I think of 98% sunny days, sitting in the shade on the porch drinking lemonade.
They say, “It’s too dry, it never rains. How can you grow grass?”.
I think of the beautiful landscapes made with colorful rocks and not having to maintain a lawn.
They say, “It’s barren, there’s nothing out there.”
I think of all the beautiful desert plants, the animals and the mountains.
Many believed that building a city in the middle of the Mojave Desert would have been impossible. But Las Vegas has grown to be a thriving city that millions of people all over world flock to everyday. And tons move here each year.
It’s all about how you look at things.
This is true in your life and in business. Many of you are going through challenges in your business. You may not have a sponsor to help you. You may not be getting any leads. You’re having a hard time building your blog. You may not be able to grasp any of the online strategies. You’re having a hard time just trying to a Facebook ad approved. In business, there will always be obstacles. You will always have frustrations. There will always be something. It’s Business! Even seasoned veterans have their days when things are not going right.
But you can’t let those growing pains and frustrations get you down. If you say, “I’ve tried everything and it’s not working.” Then it won’t. If you’re not getting leads and you think, “I will never get any leads.” You won’t. Just like the desert, if all you see is the bad, all you will get is the bad. You have to change your perspective.
Perception is Reality
Your brain is constantly taking in different bits of information all at once to make meaningful patterns that eventually form a complete picture of the world around you. The way your brain perceives this information creates your unique perspective. But your perspective is also shaped by your emotions and your experiences in life. Chances are if things aren’t going very well in your life right now, the world may seem against you. You may feel that you will never be successful or this business may not work for you. But if things are going great for you, your perspective on life may be different. Whatever you perceive to be, you believe to be true. And whatever you believe shapes your reality. This can be detrimental in business. So, how you can radically shift the way you see reality?
Believe in Yourself
The first step in changing your perspective is believing in yourself. The common denominator for any successful person is belief in themselves. Everyone has struggled. Everyone, even successful people, have been at the point where things weren’t going right and they wanted to give up. But no matter what they were going through, they changed their perspective. No matter what obstacles were in their way, they believed they were greater than their circumstances. They believed that one day we would make it. Successful people take their struggles and frustrations and think of them as learning and teaching experiences. There was a time when Michelle Pescosolido didn’t know how to post on Facebook. There was a time when Ray Higdon didn’t know anything about blogging. But instead of saying, “This will never work. I quit,” they say “I know this will work.” You have to change your perspective.
The next time, you face a problem in your business, when you are struggling learning a new strategy or can’t quite get your Facebook ad approved. Change your perspective. Think of it as a learning experience, a building block to a successful future. If you perceive that one day you will be successful, you will.
