Success Truth #3 Accurate Thinking is a Must
To be truly successful in MLM and in life, you will need to develop the discipline to think accurately rather than emotionally. Try not to be offended here. Most people, whether they realize it or not, think primarily from their emotions, and not from their intellect. People are capable of rational thought but it does not me human beings are rational creatures. Everyone is guilty of this to some degree. The problem is emotional thinking doesn’t necessarily result in what could be called accurate thinking. It’s okay to be emotional, and it’s okay to think. Just don’t try to combine the two of them together and expect accurate results under most circumstances. Emotions are necessary and serve a delightful and wonderful purpose in life. They can be incredibly empowering. But the truth in all matters is rarely what’s most important to our emotions. Consider the fact that we emotionally wire ourselves differently from other people. What something means to me from an emotional standpoint isn’t necessarily the same for you. To further complicate things, it is usually whatever serves the strongest emotional state that wins. Because our emotions are such a powerful and influential force, they often dominate us in the arena of our mind, clouding our better judgment and our actions.
Emotional thinking interferes with our inner vision and our intuition and our success in MLM and in life. This is dangerous ground to tread on. Often, this powerful emotional force overcomes even truth and logic to present its own version of reality to us. The brain acts upon this strong impulse and provides ample supporting evidence and rationale to buttress these emotional assumptions. Emotional thinking will literally send the brain scrambling to justify its reasoning. There is a “thinker” and a “prove-er” involved. The thinker thinks and the prove-er then goes to work proving what the thinker thinks. The brain, performing its faithful duty, perfectly finds and provides seemingly solid supporting evidence, regardless of whatever the truth may be. Therefore, it is what becomes most real to the mind. Thoughts are things and if you think it then you are right. At least in your own mind that is. This is truly dangerous thinking, and to one degree or another, all of us indulge in it. If you want to succeed in MLM and in life you have to learn to harness these facts for your advantage instead of letting them work against you.
Emotions are not the evil bane of success seekers. As a matter of fact, they are powerful motivators and catalysts for success. When properly directed and aligned by the success equation, they help produce phenomenal results. Properly harnessed and used in this fashion, the emotions are extremely beneficial friends rather than foes.
For example, if you begin to think of yourself as a victim, you begin to feel like a victim. All it takes is a tiny seed planted in your consciousness to take root and grow. Soon you begin to see reasons that support your strong emotional state and belief (you fertilize them). This begins to strengthen your feelings and ideas about what you believe. You soon marry this belief and emotion with further conditioning, which produces a profound effect on your psyche. You start to produce results in accord with your belief. You begin to prove it. You manifest your beliefs. The conclusions will appear to be so completely plausible and real – regardless of whatever the truth may be – that you will begin to act upon them, and to produce validating results in your life. You will literally begin to attract validating scenarios, outcomes, and like energy into your life as a result. It becomes your reality! It is your self-fulfilling prophecy… It’s the law of attraction in action. You are influencing the fabric of creation.
Unfortunately, many of us have reaped the perennial bitter harvest of emotional turbulence for far too long. Inaccurate emotional thinking is powerful indeed! Left unchecked I can be absolute poison for those aspiring toward great success, abundance, MLM victory and wealth. We must establish accurate thinking and we must weed from the internal realm of our beings the unprofitable and undesirable habits we may have cultivated there. We must prepare our plot, and plant the new seeds of abundance and wealth within us. These seeds of success, when well-tended, will produce the harvest that we have been missing in life. These seeds of MLM and life success include the habit of accurate thinking empowered by emotion, rather than emotional thinking leading to inaccurate mental assumptions and results. Remember the thinker thinks and the prove-er proves.
Emotional thinking, rather than accurate thinking, is most often based in fear, pride, ego and opinion. Pride often rebels at the thought that you won’t get something you want, and fear sounds the alarm that you may be going to lose something you’ve already acquired. The ego is attached to both of these, as well as to the persistent belief that your external accomplishments define who you are. This ego-centered thinking assumes that material possessions, status, prestige, and others’ opinions of you, make you who you are. This is ass backwards. This absolute fallacy often dominates our egocentric thinking, motives, and self. Each of us suffers the effects of this to varying degrees. Of course, this is a giant generalization, but it neatly illustrates the point that if we continue to be driven and controlled by these motives (ego centered goals and their fulfillment through outer materialism), we shall forever fail to know the abundance of true freedom, happiness, fulfillment, and love. Because it is the inner realm that manifests outward results, there is little wonder that the kind of ego-centered living just described fails to produce what we need and want most. In short, we will fail to attain true success, and we will know little of true abundance, or peace in life. What I’m saying here is pretty deep I know, but just re-read it slowly and begin to let the ideas sink in.
If we are to make intelligent decisions concerning our lives, our MLM businesses and our success, we will need to be freed from the bonds of inaccurate thinking. We’ll start with an awareness of the problem for right now. Eventually we shall need to develop true honesty with ourselves, with life, and with others. Our self-centered, emotionally dictated ideas and motives (to whatever degree they may exist) must become supplanted by loving and accurate perspectives instead. This opens the door to true abundance in living. We are talking about true success and true wealth now. This is the stuff that goes along with the money and accomplishment to make your life simply amazing. Until harnessed, this liability and closed door may continue to deny you at every step on your journey toward true success, happiness, and fulfillment. Essentially you must first crack open that door. Then, you must begin to walk through it.
Emotional thinking must be conquered, and the best weapon we have to defeat it is rigorous honesty with ourselves and a principle called willingness. Self-centered ego and pride may only be countered by “other-centered” motives, action and living. You’ll need to develop rigorous honesty in your life. “A Compelling Reason Why” with greater-than-self motives begins a pathway to “other-centered” living.
