Become A Different You If You Want To Achieve Your Goals

Most people don't get the 'different you' concept.

They think I'm nuts when I explain it to them but nonetheless it exists.

In fact, it exists to such a degree that if you ignore it or fail to take action on it, you'll be doomed to a life exactly like you've got right now. Right this minute.

What's the Different You Rule?

It simply states that what you're getting out of life right now is the result of the thoughts you've thought. the words you've spoken and the actions you've taken up to this point.

In other words, the YOU that you've become.

It also states that, if you're not happy with the results you're currently experiencing, that the only way to change things is to become a different you.

It's cause and effect.

And it crosses EVERY single area of your life from health, to wealth to happiness and beyond.

But today let's look at wealth.

How much are you currently earning from your business or job?

Whatever the number,good or bad, you're not earning that because of the environment, the economy or any other external reason that many of us like to blame.

You're earning it because of who YOU are, right now, this minute!

Stands to reason then, that if that number is lower than what you want from life, that YOU need to become someone else, someone more than who you are right now.

In fact, I believe that every single rung of the income ladder requires that you become a different you.

You need to be a different you to go from $20,000 to $40,000.

You need to be a different you to go from $40,000 to $80,000.

And you DEFINITELY need to be a VERY different you to go from $100,000 to $1,000,000!

It's a shame more people don't 'get' this.

They think that the techniques and strategies they used to to get from $20,000 to $40,000 will work to get them all the way to $100,000.

They won't.

They can't!

At $20,000 the YOU that you are is thinking very differently. The YOU that you are is thinking of how to accomplish $40,000. The YOU that you are is taking the actions and the risks equal to the task of achieving $40,000.

But that YOU isn't ready for $100,000...

...Yet!

Oh, that YOU thinks you are but you're not.

In fact, if you insist on remaining the $40,000 YOU whilst trying to get to $100,000 you'll fail.

You'll have a good month, you'll have a bad month.

You'll sell a few ebooks, then it'll stop selling.

You'll get a better job then lose it or stagnate in your new position for years.

No doubt about it, trying to earn $100,000 whislt being a $40,000 you is one step forward, two steps back.

And it's frustrating as hell!

I know.

I resisted growing into the me I had to be in order to break the six-figure barrier and I experienced the success/failure two-step over and over again.

I wasted time, I wasted money, I wasted energy and I wasted passion on watching my ideas do 'so-so' when, on paper at least, they should have been stunning successes.

Then I hit on the Different You Rule and everything changed... almost overnight!

I realised that the different me I had to be had to risk failure more often (I'd been playing it safe).

I realised that the different me had to think bigger (I'd been thinking small - even though it didn't feel like it at the time)

I realised that the different me had to invest in my future (Up til then I'd considered many things to be expenses rather than investments).

And most of all, I realised that the different me needed a mentor to coach and guide me (Up to then I'd done the whole loner 'thing' and thought that success and failure were down to me alone).

I don't know what YOU you need to be, only you can answer that, but whatever it is, there's no doubt that you need to be more than you are now.

Now, it's up to you what you're going to do about becoming that YOU but whatever it is, I suggest you stop 'thinking about it' and get to it. After all, every day you're not working toward being the YOU who has the house, the car, the business, the lifestyle, the travel the adventure and the relationships you truly want, is another day where you're actively choosing to keep things exactly as they are.

If you're happy with thing as they are then fine, do nothing.

If not... then hustle!

To the successful YOU I know you can be!

Exactly.

I remember when I could only imagine myself making 40 or 50k per year.

Now life is completely different as I am in a much much higher "tax bracket" and living my dreams.

It's all about being a different "you" and not letting self-imposed limitations clog up your self-image.

This applies to everything! (including weight loss, my specialty as you know)

Anyway, thanks for such a great perspective,Dax.

Perfect. Just the words I needed to hear today. I agree wholeheartedly - to get something you've never had before you have to be willing to do what you've never done before!! That's the truth and I thank you for sharing and encouraging me in my pursuit of developing a different me.

This article has made my day. I have been struggling for some time with literally everything that I do. I have started not only thinking in a different way but also doing things differently. I completely believe that this will change my life.

Thank you for the wonderful thought.
