Talent will never overcome a poor mindset.
And I'm using poor as a doubt entendre. Poor as in undesirable, low in standard and quality as well as poor as in impoverished.
In 2005, the National Science Foundation published an article showing that the average person has between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before.
And get this, neuroscientists have conducted multiple studies that show that only 5% of our cognitive activities are conscious. So 95% of our thoughts are on the subconscious level!
What the what?!?! In laymans terms, we have the same negative thoughts everyday and we don't even realize it! The danger here is that you are letting all of those negative thought patterns and beliefs affect your decisions and behaviors. Those decisions and behaviors have culminated to the life you are currently living. So if you like your life. Do nothing. You're doing great. If there are parts that you are not happy with well - you're not making enough money, you hate your job, you aren't happy with the way you look, or your love life sucks, etc... well, I'm 99% sure there's a thought pattern that we need to shift. Asap.
Its very easy for me to spot this by the way. I can talk to someone for 5 min and see where their mental hiccups are. And it's also why I put my clients through very rigorous #mindset work.
I encounter so many brilliant, talented people who have forgotten how powerful they are and what they are truly capable doing in this world. They default to fear and limits, find comfort in impossibility and lack. They have made being discontent a "normal" way of living because all of the above don't require them to change and gives ammo to point the finger at someone else.
TRUTHBOMB, The problem may have always been you. But the good news is, so has the solution!
But, You have to be intentional about learning to be aware of your thought patterns. You have to study the art of mind mining the 95% of those negative thoughts so you can shift them into better ones.
Remember, Its easy to predict the future cuz if you change your thoughts, you can change your life.
