If you are on the road to living your plan or even if you haven’t started that journey yet, you may be asking what to do next. If there is something that you aspire to, the most important is to start seeing and acting as if you are already at the level that you aspire to. This concept really sounds new agey and I will apologize in advance but this is important to being a successful business owner. I want to talk about the concept of be-do-have.
This concept was first introduced to me by a good friend and business partner, Garrett Gunderson. When Garrett had first talked to me about this, I realized that I had be living my life the exact opposite way. Be-Do-Have means being what you want, which leads to doing the things that you need to do, then ultimately leading you to having the things that come from the first two actions steps. Unfortunately I think most of spend too much time living this principle in the reverse.
How many times have you heard someone lament what they would do if only something good would happen to them? Phrases like; “If I only had more money, then I would be happy.” or “If I could just get a lucky break like so-and-so, then my professional life will really take off.” If you have these thoughts, I can guarantee you one thing, you will never get the things that you so desperately want out of life.
The concept of seeing and living your life as you want it to be deals with being the person first. You must be in order to do. This is why so many lottery winners end up broke. They thought that money would solve their problems and allow them to be the kind of person that they always wanted to be. Unfortunately, they kept being the same person that they had always been and ended up right back where they started from or worse.
So what can we do to live our plan? One of the simplest things to do is to start speaking as if you were that person already. It’s important to scrub your external and internal language and make sure that what you are saying and thinking aligns with who you want to be. How do you scrub your internal language or thoughts? Meditation is a great way to give you more control over what your mind give attention to. Here’s a great article on meditation for success. Visualization is the last thing that I would recommend for seeing and living your life as you want it to be as it deals with literally seeing your life as you want it to be. The goal being that every time you visualize this life the more it starts to literally become a reality.
Utilize these tips into your daily routine. You must have the right mindset to reach higher levels of achievement and it starts with your actions. How have you been able to transform your mindset to be more productive? What’s hurdles are you working to overcome? I look forward to hearing from you.
