Life changing Attitude
by: John Giagkiozis
Do you really believe that there is anything in this world that is impossible?
I’m 21 and I had to grow up at accelerated rates because of multiple circumstances in my life. One of them was the divorce of my parents, my mother had no money and my father didn’t seem to care about me and my brother. And to make it clear “no money” means that we didn’t have enough even for food.
Now, I’m not saying these things so you can feel pity for me. I’m telling you because somehow I managed to survive, I found a Way.
Today I make 2000 euros a month, I know it’s not a fortune but at least I have a budget that is 4 times more than the average budget in Greece and this amount grows every minute even as I write this article. By the way my father make less money than that.
How did I manage to make it while I didn’t have a quarter of a penny in my pocket? ATTITUDE is the answer, I never ever stopped learning about anything that could be learned and that made me look like Guru in my circle of influence. Even with no money I had the most beautiful girls and the highest grades of all. When someone had a problem I was the one who solved it.
Imagine how it is like to have your own problems and the problems of others. It’s great, why? Because you get feedback from all the flanks, imagine yourself like a giant sponge whose only job is to soak information. It gives you an edge over the entire community, simply because people can’t cope with their own problems and helping you with yours is out of consideration. Can’t cope? Or so they think.
You see I wasn’t always like that till family problems “made me” take Responsibility. I had no one to rely upon except myself and to tell the truth I felt like I was Lost in complications and trouble. At that point I gave a promise to myself that no matter how many troubles I had I Would Succeed in Life. I was so determined that I slept only 3 to 4 hours a day.
What I did find out, was that the key to get what you want is ATTITUDE and not just any attitude but the right attitude. Let’s say you want to get rich, in order to get rich and successful you must behave like rich and successful people even if you are starving to death. You must believe you deserve to be rich and I don’t mean some superficial belief deep in your head, rather a strong conviction that you do deserve what you ask for.
When you have that kind of convictions and determination people will start treat you the way you deserve. It’s a weird thing but most people form an “Opinion” based on things you believe about yourself, so if you believe you are rich you will be perceived like one, if you believe you deserve to be respected you will be respected. In time those same people, will make your “false” conviction come True. The future “You” is made from the present “belief of” you.
The only restriction of what you can achieve is your Imagination. Imagine the best “YOU” in every detail and you will certainly become this “YOU”.
