I’m going to share the 6th Mindset straight from the book! This one is so good, it doesn’t need altering.

LivetoGiveLive to Give teaches us that abundance in one’s life is a cycle, and so to get love, respect, and financial security we must first learn to give those things. This mindset also teaches that the greatest gift we can ever give is to find and leverage our unique genius to maximize our positive impact on the world, knowing that good things will be returned to us in kind. Woooohoo — that’s powerful. Did you get it? I hope so.

You can start this process by doing some of these things. Like I mentioned, in earlier posts, you can get all the details of the 7Mindsets in the book. So go get yourself a copy.

If someone else says to me that PASSION is overrated — I’m going to pop ’em a good one (I’m not advocating for violence here — just trying to make a point). It’s so interesting how you get so many perspectives on this topic. Clearly we don’t all have the same experiences, so our thoughts about being passionate about what we do and making a choice to LIVE our lives based on that is an individual preference. Here’s what some of the naysayers may say:

1. You’ve been trying to live your passions for a long time, don’t seem to have anything to show for it. — Good grief people.

2. Passion is overrated. — OK, so if it’s overrated then what is it?

3. You can’t EAT passion and passion DON’T pay the bills! — Can you be a bigger Dream Snatcher?

For my readers today: GET INTO a Sphere of Positivity. YOUR PASSION IS POWER!

Don't QuitI’m really trying to stay focused on building a platform for my life’s mission, passions, and dreams–and boy it gets really hard sometimes to NOT QUIT!

Thanks to a great transparent leader like Michael Hyatt, Author of Platform (yes, I’m singing his praises — thanks Michael!), you’ll get a sense that you are not alone. Even with his successes, as CEO of a major publishing company, dynamic blogger and podcaster, he’s just as human as I am and he often struggles with the notion of quitting.

As I continue to learn from the best practices of inspiring individuals like Michael Hyatt, Keith Ferrazzi, and others — I realize I’ve got a lot a work to do (personally and from a business perspective) and as long as I open myself up to the possibilities set before me, I can FLY. So here are 3 of the things that I’ve got to remind myself of….so I DON’T QUIT.

  1. I am powerful beyond measure — more than adequate
  2. What I desire to do and become is not just for me — the ONE that needs to hear from me is waiting
  3. Concerning myself about yesterday and tomorrow is a waste of time — only NOW is what matters and will have impact

What 3 things do you have to remind yourself of….. so you DON’T QUIT?

I could probably take a whole month describing to you the many opportunities that have been presented to me over the years — I won’t do that. I call myself an Opportunity Catalyst because I am one who always finds an opportunity in most situations and circumstances. I am who I am today because of opportunity.

I’m about to embark on a journey of a lifetime in 2013 and I’m taking you with me whether you want to take that trip or not. I know that may sound a bit cocky — not trying to be. As I grow personally and professionally — if you’re on this site then I’m going to encourage you as I encourage myself every step of the way — it’s just what I do.   MOLA, Opportunity Catalyst
