the title of this blog goes, it says, if you change the way you look at things,
the things you look at change. So let's look into this. If you change the way
you look at things, the things you look at change. Quite interesting, isn't it?
Interesting thought, but it's not just a fancy way of saying words. Let me give
you an example.
Imagine this scenario, imagine in my house, electricity disappears. So there's no electricity, is pitch black, it's dark, it's night-time, I can't see anything. So I grabbed my car keys and I'm heading out of my house and somewhere inside my house, I dropped the keys. I dropped the keys and of course, I start looking for these keys on the floor everywhere but obviously it's pitch black, so I can't see anything and I'm looking for this keys and then I looked through the window and I see there's a lamppost outside, and it's light, and I’m thinking, “Well, why am I here looking in this darkness, if I can go outside and look where it's light.”
So I go outside and I start looking for the keys under the lamppost because it's bright there and my neighbor comes out and says, “Hey, Gediminas, what’s happening?” And I go, “Well, I lost my keys, I'm looking for my keys.” So my neighbor comes in as well starting helping me looking for the keys and after some time, the neighbor says, “Well, where did you drop the keys?” And I go, “Well, I dropped the keys inside the house, but it's dark in there, so I'm looking here because it's bright here.”
Now, it may sound funny, this analogy, but how many times you or somebody you know have something broken inside, but trying to fix it by looking for things outside or have some challenges inside, but trying to fix it by looking for things outside, you know what I mean? So the idea that the things, if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change, it's basically, the whole premise is that you control how you see the world and if you see the world differently, the world changes. I love a story by Zig Ziegler when he had a lady that come to his seminar and she goes, “I hate my job, everybody is bad. My job is horrible is this and that.”
She's in tears and Ziegler says, “Okay, get up, I can help you.” He goes, “Get a get a pen and paper.” So she gets a pen and paper and he says, “Write down 50 things you love about your job?” And she goes, “What? Did you not hear what I just told you? I hate my job.” And she goes, “Yeah, yeah.” But he goes, “Do they pay you there? Or do you work there for free?” “Well they pay me?” And he goes, “Well, do you like being paid?” “I like being paid.” “Well, that's one.”
So anyway, to cut long story short, she ends up writing out 50 things she actually likes about her job. And then Ziegler tells her to read that list every morning and every evening, every morning and evening, 50 thing she likes about her job. Well, Zig Ziegler a couple of months later comes back to the same town to do another seminar and this lady comes, she's happy, she's beaming, she's sitting at the first front row and she can't wait to speak to Zig Ziegler after seminar. Surely, she approaches Zig Ziegler and she goes, “You can't believe how much the people at my job have changed.”
Now the question is did the people at her job change? Or did she change because she started seeing things differently. She started focusing on things that she likes, all the positive things, instead of focusing on the negative things on what she doesn't like. So that's what I mean, by changing the way that you look at things and then the things start changing. If your daily focus is on all the things that you don't have, then you're going to find more things that you don't have.
But if your daily focus is on being grateful for the things you do have, then guess what you're going to notice more, you're going to start noticing and attracting more things so that you can have more, you know what I mean? So it's the way, it's like most of the things that you in your life, you’re actually controlling with your mind. It's your attitude and the way you look at those things.
And as soon as you start changing your Outlook, as soon as you go away from negativity, onto positivity, from lack mentality to abundance mentality, from being angry, jealous, and so on to being grateful, things start changing in your life, you start attracting money, you start attracting people, because guess what, it's not that the people have changed is because you have changed by focusing on different things, then you start attracting different people, because those people start looking at you and go, “Wow, this person is not complaining, this person is not moaning, this person is not angry, this person is not sad, they are happy, they are grateful, they're attracting things, I want to be with them, I want to spend more time with them.”
How does this apply to your business? Well, in very many ways, you know, if you're desperate, very often, people will not want to buy from you or join your business because they can feel that you’re desperate to make some money from them, you’re desperate to recruit somebody in your team. But when you have a mentality of abundance, that there is unending amount of people out there, and you enter the mentality of I am here to help people, I am here to serve people because one of the greatest ways for you to achieve self-actualization is actually to serve people.
We are surrounded by that but sometimes we miss it. You know, in religion, it's all about serving people, in many successful businesses it’s all about customer service. And so if you want to become successful, think about how can I serve more people? How can I become a servant to more people? And if you figure that out, if you start approaching people with that mentality, then I'm not here to get you, I'm not here to get your money. I'm not here to recruit you. But I'm here to serve you.
How can I help you? What can I do for you, you become less of a salesperson, and more of a consultant, more of a helper, more of a servant, where you’re truly looking can I actually help this person? Can I actually serve this person? And this way, again, people feel that you haven't got what they call commission breath, just after their money, you know, after them as a number, but you actually care about the person, you want to get to know the person etcetera. And people are attracted to people like that.
That's my message for you. I know it's a bit deep. I know it's a bit complicated, but it's powerful. Start with these little steps and start changing the way you look at things and those things you look at, will start changing, you will see. Just work on yourself and work on your output.
