Tip#149: Fill Your Life With SUCCESS! - Superman Returns
Spring is definitely in the air. And after a long winter the sunlight tastes sweeter than ever! The warm sunshine has been saturating my home of Toronto all week long and everyone has been out enjoying it. I've been taking lots of breaks during the day just to walk around with this silly grin on my face. I feel so rejuvenated!
Others I've talked to feel the same way. They feel free and optimistic about everything. We feel energized. It reminds me of a powerful scene in the movie Superman Returnsstarring Brandon Routh as the man of steel. After Superman's powers had been drained by exposure to Kryptonite he flies high above the earth to re-energize from our sun's solar energy.
You see Superman's energy and strength build. You see his inner power and self-confidence unleash. This is a mirror for what you can do in your own life.
This empowering feeling is what I also felt when I received my first 2 issues of the all-new SUCCESS Magazine in the mail. This past week I received the 2nd issue and I felt like a kid at Christmas. It had been a month since I received the 1st issue and that one was so packed full of juicy articles that I still haven't read them all!
The premier issue was also a synchronistic gift because on the cover was a fantastic photo of Robert & Kim Kiyosaki, Robert being the author of the successful Rich Dad, Poor Dad. This was the book that initiated a career turning point at the beginning of 2008 and showed me the importance of developing financial intelligence not just for my business but for increasing my joy for life.
Rich Dad, Poor Dadwas a revelation for me and now here was Robert Kiyosaki and his beautiful wife smiling back at me on the cover of SUCCESS magazine as if to say, "Yes we know you are a success too! Keep moving forward! We believe in you!"
That premiere issue was brimming with inspiring articles on billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson, Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz and another of my role models, Chris Gardner author of one of my favourite movies, The Pursuit of Happyness. Each magazine also includes a free DVD that includes video of well-known motivators on one side and audio inspirations on the other.
Feed Your Mind
SUCCESS magazine is a motivational resource I highly recommend. It's like a grand buffet of delicious motivational dishes all in one spot. And as I have written before and teach in all my programs it is important to keep feeding your mind. Even if you've heard the same information before allow your mind to hear it again and again.
Repetition is the key to changing your old mindsets in order to embody proactive thinking. Check out another favourite movie, Groundhog Daystarring Bill Murray to see the power of repetition.
Personal development is a process that can be fun if you want it to be. Changing a negative mindset can be an enjoyable experience. The world is full of different methods for doing so and for staying motivated. Feed your mind with the methods you gravitate towards.
And at the very least get outside and let the spring sunlight re-energize your batteries and jumpstart your spirit!
