“What you think, you become.”

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” Napoleon Hill once said. “The mind is everything. What you think, you become,” Buddha taught. You’ve heard high-minded quotes like these all your life.

The truth is that there is something to the power of the mind and whatever it is that you ask is what you get. If you have the courage to believe that change is possible then change happens.

My passion for the unlimited potential of the human mind is what brings me to search for the blueprint of highly successful people, and obviously successful depending on your view of success.

For me success is financial freedom, is the power of choice, of being able to decide what you want to do any time without having to worry, that’s my view of success.

Reading about the millionaire minds one day I realised that nowadays anyone can be a millionaire, being a billionaire requires another type of thinking and with the internet we have access to the secrets and ways that separate the highly successful from average.

Whatever it is that you think about Trump, to me he is an example of doing business. In the end, life is a massive business and he is the president if the biggest corporation in the world. We can always learn something, right?

Yesterday, looking for his book “Trump, think like a billionaire” found out reading the reviews that his POV comes down to one thing: we live in an abundant world and we are born to be rich. Full stop.

freddie-collins-309833-unsplash

Lack and scarcity are a product of the mind, the reality is that your perception of life decides the reality you live in. Money is the tool to achieve our dreams and without it you can’t do s***!

I am sharing the 10 ways Trump thinks like a billionaire that now are in my desktop and part of my habitual reads (source Bold and determined):

10 Ways to Think Like a Billionaire

————————————————

1. “Don’t take vacations. What’s the point? If you’re not enjoying work, you’re in the wrong job.”

2. “Have a short attention span…. you can get more done faster that way.”

3. “Don’t sleep any more than you have to. I usually sleep about 4 hours a night.”

4. “Don’t depend on technology… I don’t even have an ATM card; I’ve never used one in my life.”

5. “Think of yourself as a one-man army… and live to the hilt.”

6. “It’s often to your advantage to be underestimated.

denis-harsch-424073-unsplash

7. “Success breeds success. The best way to impress people is through results.”

8. “Friends are good, but family is better.”

9. “Treat each decision like a lover… the day I realised it’s sometimes smart to be shallow was, for me, a deep experience.”

10. “Be curious… hungry to understand your immediate world. Otherwise you’ll lack the perspective to see beyond yourself.”

Obviously, this is someone’s else experience and opinion and it’s your decision what to take and what to refuse, although the truth is that if there is a blueprint that works f*** emotions and be bold! 

After all, is your choice to do the best with the time you have been given, if you have to dream anyway, you might as well dream BIG!

How to build mental strength.

And this is why I am passionate about fitness. It builds a mental strength like no other.

When you are tired you must keep pushing, even if you go slower just that keep going instead of quitting means winning.

kyle-johnson-389070-unsplash.jpg

There are loads of reasons why I could recommend fitness and weight lifting. One of them is the mental toughness that you develop while working out. 

Focus, strength, resilience, endurance, determination and I could go on. 

The other day I learnt something, I was working out and got a text message with “bad” news. This is the scenario, I am sweating like crazy, my headphones’ battery had died, so the inner coach had to be full on nor to get lost in thought. 

When you set a goal, let’s say you tell to yourself, I am doing 40 crunches in the roman chair, ok? You just do them, you train your mind to go until the number 40 and the thing is and here is the lesson.

I told myself, I am doing 20 and then at 12 something inside me saying, nah, you can do 12 only and then my body stops. 

Without the music the workout is different, to help me focus I bring my attention to the muscles and how they are working. Realising that the only way I could break a pattern was by actually doing what I said I was going to do hit me. 

This thought came to me: When you are tired keep pushing, even if you go slower just that keep going instead of quitting it’s winning.

ayo-ogunseinde-493903-unsplash.jpg

It was the last round, the circuit is hardcore, it’s a core blast without rest of a 20 second plank, 20 mountain climbers with side twist for each leg, and then the killer, 20 tapping shoulder plank with two plank jumping jacks and to finish a plank to pike jump, the last one is 3 exercises in 1.

This one is to sweat it out like it’s raining, the heart rates goes high, you have to keep focus on the form and the core tight, it takes practice and it’s about the endurance more than the speed. 

The last few days when I felt the burn I rested for a couple of seconds and continued and here is the thing, those seconds seem nothing serious, right? WRONG! The moment I do that I am creating a habit, the habit of quitting or giving up as soon as I feel real pain and the avoidance of pain is comfort zone, it can spread to anything you do in life. 

As soon as I realised this the clarity and focus was incredible, it was maybe survival mode, activation of all my senses, the realisation that that text message had made me realise my strength and how much the gym is helping my growth and business. 

In the end, life is a big business and we are the CEOs! It’s called res-pon-si-bi-li-ty and control over our life experience. 

ev-625717-unsplash.jpg

Set a goal, set the intention of doing it no matter what, even if you have to do it slower, keep going, keep pushing, control the form, believe you can do it because you have done it before, and when you finish the set you will be proud of yourself because you gave your all and did the best you could. 

We live in a world that is moved by instant gratification, long term visions require endurance and it all starts in the mind. Train your mind to be 100%, all in, to persist even when the going gets though because you know that if your mind is right everything will follow. 

Remember, if your mind can see it and think about it is because you can make it, have it and experience it!

How to captivate with your story.

Write it boldly! 

No one is going to give you what you want, you have to go out there and hunt, don’t ever expect others to help you getting what you want and you won’t suffer deception. 

This is a game, the game is set for each of us to learn and grow and evolve. 

Take it as a movie where you are the main character, the director and the script writer.

Start writing and be BOLD, be brave, share your journey in the most compelling, creative, inspiring, motivational and amazing way you can possibly create.

Do it for you and you will WIN!

ishan-seefromthesky-193028-unsplash.jpg

You decide, you observe, you learn, you make your moves, you grow, you fall, you rise, you stand strong, you become and you move the pieces across the board. 

You create you opportunities and once the opportunity comes you take it and learn how to make the most of it. 

You can ask for advice but in the end you have to build up enough strength and confidence to know what you want and make it happen on your own. 

You can help others but always remember to help yourself first.

juan-rojas-349568-unsplash.jpg

Also remember that the people you ask advice from are also people, humans like you and if you don’t take your own risks you will never grow. Listen, learn from those who are where you would like to be but be bold enough to try your own way, the worst thing that can happen is that you learn another way that doesn’t work and you build up confidence from getting out of your comfort zone. 

Everybody is going to help you, it all depends on your perception, if you listen and observe you realise that actually every single thing is moving you forward and the only one holding back is yourself. 

alejandro-alvarez-150148-unsplash.jpg

From some you will learn how to be witty, from others how to treat people, from others how not to treat people, from some you will learn how to be more communicative, from others you will learn how to be strong, from some you will learn to be honest with yourself, from others you will learn how to set healthy boundaries, from others how to ask for help, from others how to love, from some you will learn how to let go, from some you will learn how to forgive, from some you will learn how to say what you really want and be crystal clear, from some you will learn how to flirt, from others you will learn about business, money and persuasion. From every single interaction you will learn more and more about yourself. 

In the end, you realise we are all learning along the way, experimenting with what we have and nobody is perfect.

How to win in life.

Who set the rules in the world? People. 

kai-gradert-456500-unsplash.jpg

Who are those people? Just humans. 

Why do we follow the rules? 

Because it’s easier to follow than to break them and take the risk of failing. 

Who said what’s good and what’s bad? 

Who the hell invented the game? 

Why aren’t we questioning absolutely everything all day every day? 

Because it can be exhausting to realise that those rules are ethereal, that we are caged by our mindsets, that we could be whatever we wanted and yet, here we are, playing the game like everybody else. 

You know why I love the entrepreneur journey? Because apart from being a self discovery journey, it activates the power of creativity, you have to figure out ways of making things happen with what you have, you become your best asset, work on yourself, take risks and chances, see opportunities everywhere, learn from every interaction and realise that false pride takes you nowhere. 

j-kelly-brito-247570-unsplash.jpg

I am learning to listen, to help others, to be selfish, to be hungry, to be observant, to play my rules and find my game. I am learning that this attitude can be applied to anything in life. I am learning what it means to make myself proud and be proud of it! 

I have learned that when you are the CEO of your life, your habits, mindset and attitude will create the culture of what you are building so better have your mind right and work your ass off for the right reasons!

I have learned to think higher. To read books and take what resonates with me. To listen to others and still do my way if I feel it’s the right thing for me. 

anna-sullivan-575433-unsplash.jpg

In the end, no-one can tell you how to live your life because we are all figuring out ways to live better, no-one is right or wrong, it’s simply different and it’s your choice what you make with the time you have been given. 

Mirror those who you admire, ask for help, get a mentor, follow the systems that work so that you can break the system that doesn’t. 

And you shouldn’t care of what people think because big dreams will always seem crazy to small minds so filter who you listen to and keep working towards them.

Follow your heart!

Follow your heart, yes, but when to know what’s really your heart and not another game of the mind? 

brannon-naito-518158-unsplash.jpg

Following your heart is tuning in to what makes you feel most alive, no matter what that is, if you could be doing that without being paid, for hours, without thinking when it’s going to end, but wishing that you could be doing that forever, then that’s your purpose. And it doesn’t have to make sense for anyone else but you. 

Your purpose can, may and will change. It’s called growth and evolution!

For me following my heart has taken me to travel around the world, trying to understand why I had so much hunger inside that nothing seemed to fulfill, my mind wandering, and my soul guiding a path that I couldn’t see clear but took the first steps and here I am. In London, writing a blog, growing as a person and becoming the woman I dreamed of. 

francesca-tirico-450426-unsplash.jpg

Following my heart has taken me to experience life and open my mind to new dimensions, being courageous enough to walk alone and learning to think by myself. 

Following my heart was messy in the beginning, I didn’t know what would happen but my strong desire to conquer is guiding my steps and I am grateful because the plan is bigger than what we can imagine. 

Why you should follow your heart? 

Because you aren’t born to settle, to limit yourself to the walls your mind is trapped, because there are limitless experiences out there for you to enjoy and it’s all in your hands. 

Because you aren’t born to be mediocre, to fit in, to be normal. 

Why? 

priscilla-du-preez-172600-unsplash.jpg

Because you have life in your lungs and you must fight for that life like it’s the end of the world. 

And it really doesn’t matter, the main point is challenging yourself to make something happen. Little did I know that from the moment that the idea of the festival came to me it would become a reality. 

That’s how it works, you set a goal and find ways to make it a reality. 

It could be doing a course, changing your habits, starting a fitness journey, grabbing a backpack and exploring Asia, telling someone that you like them, quitting a full time job to pursue a passion, starting that side hustle that could bring you more money than you could have ever imagined, moving to a new country…endless possibilities!

My tips: 

  • Write down a list of things you would like to do and start right now to work towards making them come true.
  • Be willing to get out of your confort zone and learn new things. 
  • Erase the “I know this already”, “been there, done that” from your head because every experience is unique.
  • Let this sink in you: fear is an illusion and this game is for you to win and grow into your best self!

How to define your “perfection”.

alex-read-107907-unsplash.jpg

There is no box, you are confined only by the walls you set for yourself and I am more and more aware of all the conditioning and limitations that only because I am a woman I am carrying with me and breaking through those walls is my mission. 

You know what’s perfect for me? 

Facing challenges and growing stronger from them, embracing change and allowing myself to make mistakes and learn from them. 

If you want to be perfect you will be your whole life chasing something that’s not real but in that chasing you will grow and become an amazing being capable of leaving a legacy for the world. 

Progress not perfection they say. For me it’s the hunger of perfection what keeps me going.

jonathan-hoxmark-615858-unsplash.jpg

For some the concept of perfection will be stressful, for others it will be like fuel, burning the wheels and pushing them to new levels of life.  

Be bold enough to find your voice and follow that, whatever it takes, it’s your life in the end. And remember that it’s all a matter of perception, if you stop wishing to please others and instead focus on pleasing your self, your reality will start to change. 

Commit to that and your life story will be a whole different one. 

Perfection? 

We might never reach it but we will give our all at least and make it. 

EXERCISE 9: 

  • challenge yourself to something new every now and then, I recommend every week is a good start .
  • face a fear and see that actually it was all in your head.
  • be honest with yourself and recognise when you set a goal and failed to complete it, try again and know that you can do whatever you set mind to.
  • accept your imperfections and realise that some traits can be improved and others make you YOU.
  • take a deep breath and continue moving forward!

How to stop being a people pleaser.

We are taught to be nice, kind, compassionate, caring, nurturing and all those glossy and sugarcoated traditions.

We aren’t meant to be noisy, loud or stand out too much, no good man will like you if you are overdoing, if you are over sexy, if you go for what you want. You are bossy and you intimidate men! 

We have been told that powerful women intimidate men our whole life. WAKE UP! We are not here to please anybody but us and that’s the biggest service we can give to the world!

nikita-kachanovsky-494828-unsplash.jpg

Fuck being nice for a day! Do whatever you want! Risk making others angry and don’t care! SAY NO when you mean it!

Saying no and having an attitude is different. Saying no means you are being true to yourself and you are choosing yourself before anybody else. 

Some call it selfish, I call it self love! 

timothy-eberly-515801-unsplash.jpg

Learning to say no when it’s hard is when you really win. Saying no means you will piss off people but if you keep on pleasing people you won’t get far. 

This goes to every time we feel something in our stomach telling us not to go one way and we still go that way.

All those times when we know we have let someone else decide our moves we are giving our power away. And later we have the courage to blame others!

Where we are in life is product of the choices we made in the past and if we keep looking back and thinking that we could have done something different instead of using every experience as a steeping stone for our future we are already dead.

I have heard them all, I used to have many of this excuses in me. WHAT IF?

WHAT

IF

YOU 

START 

FACING 

THE 

UGLY

TRUTH 

AND CREATING A LIFE YOU LOVE? NOW! 

Being nice means you will put others before you choose yourself and yes, some of you might be married, with kids, divorced, lost, unemployed…name it…well, there is always a way out…if you are willing to put in the work, know yourself and make the right moves now.

Being nice with others and then faking being nice with ourselves when what we need is a kick in the ass…that’s lame!

sharon-garcia-417675-unsplash.jpg

Do you want to get somewhere? Go out there and make it! 

Do you want to live a life worth watching when you are about to leave this planet? Go out there and go for it! 

FUCK BEING NICE! 

Why are we nice? Because we want others to love us, to approve us, to say: wow you are so nice! So great! So amazing! 

We look for constant approval instead of playing the game, life is playing it on us.

We allow others to decide when and where, how and what.

Without questioning.

Without taking the step back to question ourselves, our actions, our reality, our situation.

Then we go to therapy, we blame our parents, our environment, we blame our bad choices, our mistakes, if in the past I hadn’t done that I wouldn’t be where I am right now!

BS! 

Every journey is different, every single life is different, every person is different, every story has to be different and you are where you are right now, life is pushing your buttons the way it is right now, for you, YES YOU! To act accordingly.

filip-mroz-235735-unsplash.jpg

There are few steps in gaining control over your life and every story is different, this may resonate with some and it may hit others so hard that they will hate it, so be it.

Gaining control over your life is understanding that this game was made for us to become stronger and wiser, standing up challenge after challenge and building a mind muscle to lead our lives with the joy and freedom we deserve. 

Being nice means you are part of the pack, those who are really nice don’t follow the crowd, they do them, they do their thing, they are nice when they want and when they don’t feel like it they are just them, true and authentic, if it hurts someone’s ego they don’t bother, they don’t fight battles that aren’t worth their time, they build their empires and walk their path.

Being nice means you will sacrifice your life for others and there is no bigger disservice than being so nice that you find yourself at 80 years old thinking what the fuck did I do, where did all that time go, where is everybody now? All those big favours that you did? Gone! Under water.

You are nice with yourself, in the mirror, owning your personality, being hard, becoming stronger, and then projecting that energy into the world, that’s how you inspire!

CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES WISELY! 

ryan-tang-281277-unsplash.jpg

This is life, this isn’t a test or a Disney movie. This is the harsh reality and we better step up and own it or remain the same and blame our environment for not being who we dream to be.

THE BIGGEST COMPETITION YOU WILL HAVE TO BATTLE IS LOOKING RIGHT BACK AT YOU IN THE MIRROR EVERY SINGLE DAY! THAT’S YOUR FIGHT! IN YOUR MIND! 

Someone asks you a favour and you are not in the mood? Say no, with a smile, no excuses and no explanations, don’t justify your no. Just say NO and that’s a complete sentence.
