We Become What We Think About
"A man's life is what his thoughts make of it."
- Marcus Aurelius ?
Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated, "a man is what he thinks about all day long." He understood an important principle that is at the heart of sales success, or any other success for that matter. If you believe you are a successful salesperson and you think about yourself succeeding day in and day out, you will succeed. Unfortunately, the reverse is equally true.
Norman Vincent Peale also wrote about this concept:
This is one of the greatest laws in the universe. Fervently do I wish I had discovered it as a very young man. It dawned on me much later in life and I found it one of the greatest, if not my greatest, discovery outside of my relationship to God.
The law of prosperity and success to which he was referring says that if you think in positive terms, you'll achieve positive results but negative thinking produces only negative results.
Psychologists and motivational speakers, like Earl Nightingale, suggest the mind is very much like the land on a farm. The land gives the farmer a choice. He can plant whatever he chooses since the land doesn't care. It is up to the farmer to make the decision. Our subconscious mind, like the farmer's land, doesn't care what we plant either. It will return whatever we plant. Once the seed is planted and watered, it will grow. Seeds of success or seeds of failure are available for planting. We can plant seeds of success and harvest happiness or seeds of failure and harvest disillusionment and discontent. What are you planting?

Adaptability as a Key to Success
Do you ever stop to consider how much we change and grow as people? I'm not talking so much about "maturing" or physical growth. What I'm driving at is the changes that occur inside of us; the changes in thought and self perception. We are constantly bombarded with an incredible amount of information. Our grandparents didn't get nearly as much stimulation in their lives as we get in a single day. We are exposed to more ideas, more lifestyles, more ideologies every week than our great grandparents ever heard of. So given this fact it is imperative that we learn good coping mechanisms and a strong sense of focus.
