“The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves.” Richard Bach

High performers know they can lie to themselves. They realize that growing their mental strength is about learning to lie to themselves less! They remember that happiness doesn’t come from what they have, but from within. They think like a 60 year old instead of believing the lie that others will think they are silly. They celebrate what makes them unique. And they realize everyone is struggling with something.

I let go of the lies I tell myself to become the person I was meant to be.”

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.” Jim Rohn
 
High performers know they need to take 100% responsibility for everything in your life. They embrace E + R = 0. They ask themselves, how can I take just 5% more responsibility for my life. They realize its not what other people say to them that matters, it is what they say to themselves matters. They give up blaming and complaining. They take control of their life and drive it!
 
Power Phrase This Week: 
I accept 100 percent responsibility for my life. I own my power."

 “A negative mind will never give you a positive life.” Unknown

 High performers train their thoughts. They follow and implement the 3 thought principles to take command over their thinking. They don’t believe everything they think. They talk to themselves not listen. And they think “I will…I can…I am…” to reach their potential.

Power Phrase this Week:

I talk to myself not listen. I talk to myself starting with “I will…I can…I am…”.
