Morning Cup of Joe – As A Man Thinketh


During a recent life coaching session, a client contacted me because they were nervous about a position they had applied for. Naturally, we all get a little nervous when we are unsure of a particular outcome. As the session continued she said something that caused me to pause. She said “I don’t think I’m going to get the position”. My reply was simply, “How do you know?” I was very confused as to why she thought she would not get a position in which she hasn’t even interviewed for yet.

Oftentimes we talk ourselves out of opportunities because we lack the understanding that our words are extremely powerful and have the rare ability to create our reality. In addition, our thoughts have the ability to become things. Most people have difficulty understanding why they don’t win as often as others do. Some believe that they are just plain unlucky. I am here to tell you that success has absolutely nothing to do with luck and everything to do with how you think, what you say and being ready to accept challenges head on.

Like the old adage says, “As a man thinketh, so is he”. If you think you cannot accomplish something, chances are you won’t. It is imperative that you change your mindset if you are not currently experiencing the joy of accomplishment. Most winners win because they think and believe that they can. There are no secret recipes to winning. It simply starts with your self-talk; what you constantly tell yourself about your situation. At all times maintain a positive mental attitude and you will attract positive things into your life. Believe that you can and you inevitably will.

Success is reserved for those who believe they can succeed; it’s all in your state of mind. Think BIG or don’t think at all.

To The Top!
