Secret #1 Perform Problem Identification
Think about one of the goals you have for yourself or your company or business. When you think about this goal of yours, your next thought might be something like this… I really want to achieve that goal, but…
- I can’t do it because I don’t have time.
- I can’t do it because I don’t have money.
- I can’t do it because I’m divorced.
- I can’t do it because I have kids.
- Because I live in the wrong city.
- Because I didn’t go to the right college.
Because because… and blah blah blah…
What is the problem with this way of thinking? We humans have an almost limitless capacity to make ourselves right.
Once you think about the reason, you’ll defend it to the death, because a lot of people would rather be right than be happy (or even be successful).

Secret #3 Making a decision
Once you’ve identified your trash head about money and realized how high the costs are, it’s time to make a decision. Decide that you won’t listen to that negative voice in your head again.
For example, I grew up in poverty in a wealthy environment. As a result, I ended up with a lot of self-doubt about money, along with the belief that I would never have money.
I have big goals and dreams, but I also have a negative voice in my head telling me that I can’t do it. So my head garbage would say things like:
“I want to speak to the whole world, but who will listen to me? My name is not John. I dropped out of school twice. I’m not special. Who will listen to me? ”
Even if you are saddled with all the head junk, you can throw it away and launch your business. Once you’ve identified his bullshit about money (“People will think I’m pushy”) and see how much it costs (the sales), you make the decision that you’re not going to listen to that negative voice anymore.
