6 Steps To Help You Along Your Path
Step 1: Change your thinking
When you change your thinking, you change your beliefs. Change begins with the mind. Beliefs are nothing more than a byproduct of what you have thought about over time, something that you have bought into—always remember that.
Take Action: do something you have never done before – Keep it legal and clean though! ;-)
Step 2: Change your beliefs
When you change your beliefs, you change your expectations. Belief is the knowledge that we can do something. It is the inner feeling that what we undertake, we can accomplish. Our beliefs control everything we do. If we believe we can or we believe we can’t, we are correct.
Take Action: Reading each of them, tell yourself (out loud) that you can achieve your beliefs!
Step 3: Change your expectations
When you change your expectations, you change your attitude. Your expectations are going to determine your attitude. Most people get to average. Over time, when their expectations fail; they give up. Believe that you can. Expect that you can and your attitude will change.
Take Action: Write down your expectation (goals) and place them on your mirror.
Step 4: Change your attitude
When you change your attitude, you change your behavior. When our attitude begins to change, when we become involved with something, our behavior will also begin to change. You must first take the journey before others will follow you there.
Take Action: Read, listen to and watch positive and uplifting materials. Stop watching the news!
Step 5: Change your behavior
When you change your behavior, you change your performance. Most people would rather live with old problems than new solutions. We would rather be comfortable than correct; we would rather stay in a routine than make changes. Until we gain courage and live with something that is not yet comfortable for us, we cannot get any better.

Step 6: Change your performance
When you change your performance, you change your life. It is easier to turn failure into success than it is an excuse into a possibility. I promise you, when you make excuses for what you are doing and excuses for where you are you will fail to reach your potential. It is impossible to turn excuses into possibilities.
Take Action: Monitor and record your success, even if they are small!
In conclusion, when you change your way of thinking you will change your life. For me, the art of living is to embrace and cultivate change. After all, if you’re not moving forward through positive change, you’re failing through mediocrity. Don’t be that person.
Take Action: Enforce your change. Share your new thoughts, beliefs and success with others.
