I hate, hate, hate feeling frantic.
Like when my thoughts are racing and my mind jumps from one worry to the next, without solving any of my “problems” and instead become increasingly anxious and stressed out.
It’s a horrible state of my mind to be in, and not befitting of a man who wants to have a disciplined, controlled mind that pours over into his actions, his business, and his family.
Fact is, you are of no use to anyone if you are not operating from a calm, focused state of mind.
If you’re frantic, you’re operating from your animal brain which literally narrows your line of vision, and you won’t be able to come up with creative solutions to solve your problems or even stay focused enough to complete small tasks that will actually help you feel less stressed and anxious.
It’s like trying really, really hard to get a boner: usually the opposite will happen.
Our success is tied to our ability to stay calm under pressure.
And between bills to pay, mouths to feed, marketing, management, and arguing with your wife, god knows there is pressure.
The question is: how are you going to handle the pressure?
How do you turn off the frenetic thinking?
You can quit business, quit life, pull the covers over your head, or drown your anxieties with addictive distractions and behaviors.
But to become a man of wealth, you can’t do that.
As a wealthy man you must face your fears and take action – even small, tiny steps to start paying off debt or earning more in your business or putting aside money into a savings account so your kids and wife can trust that you will provide for them when the moment arises.
And the first step is very simple: awareness.
Just realize when you’re getting caught up in the stressed out mindset, take a deep breath, and harness your attention.
It’s all the stuff they teach you to do in meditation.
But you don’t have to join a class, download an app, or spend 15 minutes at the beginning of every day.
In the gym of your mind, you are working out your thought muscles 24/7.
Your thoughts are habits that you build out of repetition.
Sure you can make mantras for yourself if that helps, but simply being aware of the negative thinking, slowing down, and recalibrating will set you back on the path you want to be on, the path toward success.
As Jim Rohn says, your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development.
And if you don’t have a handle on your mind, you won’t have a handle on your life or your business and your success will be minimal.
So above all else: guard your mind, condition your mind, and strengthen your mind.
Replace the little-bitch self perceptions (which all of us are tortured by) and start perceiving yourself as the one who overcomes adversity, stays calm despite adversity, and who succeeds even when there’s adversity.
And you don’t have to go it alone.
