    Todd Talks: Mindset Is Everything!

    Todd Talks: Mindset Is Everything!

    Mindset is Everything!

    Success is a climb. It’s a journey. It’s a lifelong pursuit and built with unpredictable ups and downs...Mindset is everything!!  The “experts” tell us this and it is true!!

    Your mindset is the beliefs you carry in your head about you and your abilities and this will determine how far you go in life. If you believe you are born to struggle, you will be suspicious of anything offering you any opportunity to stop struggling. You will feel completely justified in holding yourself back because your mind is okay thinking it is normal to struggle.

    You can think about success as a flowing river. The struggle part is you getting to the riverbank. Dealing with obstacles; mean people, defeat, anger, sadness and despair happens when you are walking to the river of success. When you get to the flowing river of success you have two decisions that you can make.

    First, you must decide if you are going to jump into the river or keep on fighting and struggling. This might take some people a long time to decide because they have been raised to believe that struggle was the only way to live! Habitual thinking can be hard to let go of sometimes.

    Then you jump into the river you have another decision to make 🤷‍♂️ You have to choose between the struggle of swimming upstream or allowing yourself to flow downstream to continued success in other ventures.

    Struggling upstream matches many folks learned behavior of obtaining success. Flowing downstream means you no longer need to struggle for success. You would already be in the flow.

    The biggest problem is that for many, we’re taught that this decision is a moral choice instead of a pragmatic one. We do have a choice. Swim upstream and continue to struggle or flow downstream and enjoy the ease of life.

    Change involves making new choices.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Not everyone is the same and all paths are open without recrimination. The real deal is that you don’t need to continue to struggle unless you want to...👈😉

    Many start their journey with pie-in-the-sky, smooth-road ideals, yet, success is rarely, if ever, that type of journey.

    Be relentless, be resilient and never quit!

    Todd Talks: Play The Cards That Are Dealt And Win ♠️

    Todd Talks: Play The Cards That Are Dealt And Win ♠️

    A wise player can play a weak hand and win the game...

    For those of you that have kids, they're home from school and for extended periods of time now. I wanted to look at "how are you guys reacting to the situation?" Are you taking it as time for yourself to get better? How are you carrying yourself around the house with your kids or your friends? Are you engaging in the media blitz and full of negativity? Or are you harboring this time to really pull together with your loved ones and set an example for your kids?
     
    I want you to show them how you react to challenging situations and how you make greatness come from dark times. How your kids see you react is going to be a direct reflection of how they react.  If they see you harboring the victim mentality and "negative, negative, negative", what do you think is going to come out of them?
     
    While you are home educating your children and educating yourself, do they see you engaging in books? Do they see you engaging in activities with them?  Are you going online to Amazon or to school resources to get them the experiences, workbooks and things they need? Or are you just putting the iPad in front of them or giving them the iPhone then going about your day, just looking at them as a nuisance? Or are you really engaging in their lives and taking his time to bond together and come out on the other side stronger?

    Maybe you had some challenging times where you've had a job that you didn't really like. Maybe this is that defining moment in time when you do have time off? Or possibly where you're forced to have time off and really allow yourself to get rid of all your excuses. You know, those things that were road blocking you from having success and from stepping out and taking risks because risk was not imposed by yourself. This quarantine was not a choice. It was something that's been put into place and you're going to have to deal with it. 
     
    Maybe this is that kick to the teeth or that chance for you to really level up your life. Take this situation during turbulent times and turn it into tremendous times. Make these times full of prosperity and abundance coming out the other side, feeling fulfilled, feeling like you have a purpose. If you do have a family, make sure that you've really bonded and pulled together. Allow your children to see that sun really shine. Let them see all the opportunities that they have in their life and in your life, making it better.
     
    Fully engage with your children, give them that big hug in the morning. Tell them how grateful you are to have this opportunity to really spend time together. Appreciate the time with them and just soak it all in.  Be that example you want to see shine in your children. Like I've said in previous talks, for some of you, this is the first time you've ever seen this type of a situation, and probably the last time you'll ever see this situation. But it's going to pop up many more times in your children's lives.
     
    How are you preparing them for this? Set them up to really have this course in uncharted waters. I truly want you all to be present in the moment. You have this opportunity to play such an influential role in determining your own future. This is a pivot point for your future, for your kids future and for your legacy! This is not a choice that was made by you, so take that as an opportunity to better yourself.

    Step up. Put on a great smile and go crush today.
