In this week’s Motivation Monday video Oprah talks about how often when you really want something in your life, you end up focusing on the feeling of not having it, she says you end up “living in the space of what you don’t have”. Living in that space does not help you to reach your goals, what you need to do is act as though you already have what you want.
I remember watching a video on Tony Robbins once and he said that his mentor Jim Rohn told him that if he wanted to be wealthy he had to start acting like he already was wealthy. Jim told Tony to save up $300 and then get three $100 bills and keep them in his wallet, so every time he opened it he saw the money and felt good.
Over the next week think about what you want – are you living and acting as though you already have it? Or are you living in the space of not having it?
Start taking small steps towards acting and feeling like you’ve reach your goals, like they’re a done deal.
