Each and every day brings with it a fresh chance, a new opportunity. It also presents some challenges and invaluable gifts. Now, these challenges and gifts are far from exclusive to you and I. They are pretty much available equally to every entrepreneur on the planet, without discrimination, regardless of where we call home, these are available. Now, one of the gifts is simply the opportunity to wake up, right? Or as my mentor Zig Ziglar used to say,"Every day is a great day and if you don't think so, you just try missing one." So waking up is truly a gift. Then there are the challenges! Now, oh baby, those challenges. The initial moments soon as we open our eyes basically shape the very framework of our day. It is at this moment that we must prepare to step onto the battlefield of self-talk. Self-talk doesn't merely influence the tone of your day. It sets the stage for your entire experience. Here's the critical first question that requires your unwavering attention,"Am I going to surrender to the seductive allure of average and laziness and reach for the snooze button? Or am I going to hop out of bed ready to go kick some serious ass?" This opening round of internal dialogue is a pivotal crossroad that shapes our day and influences our outlook. Now, I need you to imagine as you stumble into your bathroom first thing in the morning and stare at yourself in the mirror, you are introduced to two characters sitting on your shoulders. One character on your left shoulder, envision this guy as a crafty devil with his pitchfork staring you in the eyes. This dude is bad news. He is a master illusionist, armed with negativity, pessimism, and self-doubt. This devil represents your fears, your uncertainties, forces you to focus on the difficulties and challenges you have in front of you. This internal troublemaker wants to bring you down and giving in to his influence opens the floodgates of mediocrity, negativity, and pain. On the other hand, as your attention shifts to your right shoulder, imagine a powerful angel radiating positivity and hope. Her presence is one of confidence. She represents optimism, gratitude, excellence. She is your internal cheerleader. She's your teammate as you step onto the field of daily self-negotiation. The power to tune into the angel's frequency is 100% within your control. Every morning, your angel pushes you to make a conscious decision to be the best version of yourself. She ignites the fires of optimism and positivity within you, and she reinforces why you are great. She's going to challenge you to recognize and appreciate your blessings, capitalize on your strengths, and celebrate the abundant goodness in your life. Now, in the past, I would get sucked into the devil's whispers by starting my day with a barrage of negative news, problem emails, or a sea of social media trash. This habit always led me down a spiral of defeat and pessimism. Make no mistake about it, the devil is a powerful adversary. He is a deceptive con artist waiting to lead us down a dark road. Do not entertain his negativity. Do not engage in negotiations with him. He is the essence of bad and has the power to ruin even the most optimistic and driven. Instead, choose to nourish your mind first thing in the morning with inspiring, uplifting, and high-energy content. Let your cell phone act as a power plant while you're brushing your teeth, while you're shaving, putting on your makeup, getting ready. Tune into an inspiring podcast, an inspirational audio book, or a motivational video to build your daily foundation. Heed your angel's guidance, shower your reflection in the mirror with compliments and feed your mind with positive affirmations. Accept the fact that you will face difficulties today, be it a lost customer, traffic jam, problem employee, a cashflow challenge. Remember, you are the champion of your day. With mental toughness, discipline, and a laser-sharp focus. You will be bulletproof and be able to navigate through any of these turbulent trying things that come your way. Please remember, every day, as soon as your eyes open self negotiation begins. You must triumph in this negotiation! Seize control of your day with unparalleled energy, unparalleled excitement, and unshakable enthusiasm. Not every day greets us with a picturesque sunrise. Some days will be cloudy and rainy and filled with challenges. But when you condition your mind, first thing in the morning, to seek out the silver lining, you will find yourself primed to kick ass, regardless of the circumstances or the challenges. You possess the power to transform an ordinary day into an extraordinary work of art. So, harness that explosive energy, fuel the start of your day with some high-octane motivation, inspiration, and hit the road like an entrepreneur looking to change the world.
