We’ve spent the last eight posts looking at causes of failure. How foundational beliefs can cause you to self-sabotage your own success. I presented what I see as the five deadliest causes, the beliefs that underlie those causes, and suggested the sources you get those beliefs from.
But why should you accept what I’m saying as fact?
The short answer is, you shouldn’t. Because nothing I write here is presented as fact or Truth with a capital ‘T.’ It’s me sharing my own beliefs, based on the experiences I’ve gone through, and what I’ve been able to accomplish with the lessons learned from that experience. Whether it’s this blog, my books, seminars or podcast, my objective is to share what’s working, and not working in my own life, in order to provide insights for you.
Then the job is yours. You need to question the premise, process the information, and use critical thinking on how it applies or doesn’t apply, to your own life. You have to question what me or anyone else suggests about your beliefs. Then you have to question your beliefs. Which is the part most people won't actually do. They filter everything they hear against their own confirmation bias they already have about their beliefs.
If you want to become prosperous, the best process isn’t being born into a wealthy family, winning the lottery, cracking the stock market, finding investors, or even building a better mousetrap. The best process for manifesting prosperity is using your abilities for critical thinking and discernment.
So how you doing on that?
