The election is over here in the United States.
That means that means — most of the world (and about half the U.S.) is breathing a massive sigh of relief that it’s finally over.
It also means that about half of the U.S. are terrified about the future.
Think about that.
That’s over 100 million Americans who fear that the world is coming to an end.
Some people are warning of a stock market crash. Guess what? There’s always a stock market crash. It happens on regular cycles.
Wars will continue. Gas prices will go up and down.
Here’s my prediction about what your life will look like in the next four years:
Opportunity mixed with difficulty.
Jim Rohn said it well. Sometimes it feels like there’s more opportunity than difficulty. Sometimes it feels like there’s more difficulty than opportunity.
But, one thing is certain: the daily lifestyle of the average person on the street will pretty much be a reflection of that person’s decisions and actions.
In other words, the person living in YOUR house has much more impact on your happiness than whoever lives in the WHITE house.
We have a choice.
We can choose to live in fear or move forward in faith of a better future for us and our families.
While everyone is thinking about the Election, something else happened that you’re not thinking about…
We just entered the final two months of the year.
What have you accomplished this year?
Are you living the life you thought you’d be living when you wrote New Year’s Resolutions back in January?
Every month….every week….every day….the clock keeps ticking.
And while most people stay distracted with the news, the media, with politics….
….a much smaller group of people are earning fortunes by doing things a little bit differently than the masses….and they’re living amazing lives.
The news media is all about fear. That’s the drug they peddle.
After today’s election is over, they’ll shift gears and start talking about something else you should be terrified about.
Be careful what thoughts you allow to take up space in your mind.
Your thoughts become your decisions.
Your decisions become your actions.
Your actions become your results.
And if you start from fear, anxiety, and worry….you’ll have a life of fear, anxiety and worry.
It’s no wonder so many people are depressed today.
But — again — a much smaller group of people are actually “awake” and living lives of incredible prosperity and abundance.
You can join that smaller group. It’s simply a choice.
So, here’s my advice for you today:
Focus on what you want your life to look like in the next 60 days.
Forget the woo-woo and New Age success gurus. Forget the “law of attraction”. Stop waiting for the “universe” to magically drop money and success into your lap.
It’s not going to happen.
Make a Plan “B” for how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
Then work that Plan “B” until it becomes your Plan “A”
Focus on what you can do something about. Stop obsessing about things that are outside your control.
Above all, remember: your life isn’t happening to you. YOU are happening to your life.
Life’s a choice. Choose well.
