There’s a contest happening at our local supermarket at the moment.
With my bundle of receipts comes a note encouraging me to text a code and give feedback about my shopping experience.
The large print tells me I could be the lucky winner of $500 if I do.
Last week I shocked myself.
I’m ashamed to admit it, but I have to…
I caught myself thinking in a grumbling tone:
“What’s the point of putting together that text again? I’ve entered 7 times and I haven’t won once.”
Oh. My. Lord.
For the effort required and the potential upside, why would I not send the text?
How could my sulking and feeling justified that my action was pointless and hopeless, benefit me at all? Why would I indulge in that?
It’s something I have seen come up a lot for people trying to get over themselves and build their network marketing business. I was freshly amazed to spot it, alive and kicking, in my own head!
But spotting it is the first step to shaking off the hold it can take.
Think and Grow Rich is an amazing book for taking apart some of the reasons human beings succumb to these thoughts. Because it was written in the 1920s it can be tough going at times. But it’s full of fantastic tools and information if you perservere. You can read a bit more about my take on Think & Grow Rich here.
See you on the road,
